    Verse 1: The Israelites were following a man and depending on Moses for their relationship with Jehovah God. They were fleshly minded and not spiritual minded.
  • Irene123
    V. 24 - The ways of God are - unsearchable. Here Aaron flat lied about the situation , yet - God made him a priest of the Holy of Holies anyway. Just goes to show - God KNOWS our hearts.

    (verse 32) Moses knew the importance of the Book of life, Jesus told His disciples that whosoever that will master must be a servant first, Moses display the quality of a good leadership by saying that God should blot his name from that book of life,and God retun back to them with mercy. Glory be to His Name Amen.

    (verses 25-29) "Who is on the LORD'S side?" We have all heard the explaining away of why the Lord said; "If any one come after me and 'HATE' not his father, mother, brother, sister, etc... he cannot be my disciple;" with the watered down words like; 'LOVE LESS.' But this example with the Israelites shows perfectly, just what kind of spirits are those who receive not nor hear our words about Jesus.

    "And Moses said unto Aaron, What did this people unto thee, that thou hast brought so great a sin upon them?" As long as the Lord has us to be in this present evil world, we will have to be steadfast and vigilant against the wiles of the devil; and we absolutely must guard and protect the sacred charge of our high calling in Christ, to withstand the defiant and backsliding heart of the hypocrites.
