    Verse 33: And Moses said unto Aaron,Take a pot, and put an omer full of manna therein, and lay it up before the Lord, to be kept for your generations.The same “manna”, that stinks, if kept over night; now ikept for”generations”.NO:WORMS:ROTTENESS: SMELL:Only GOD!There is no Limit to our GOD! He is so Awesome.Is there anything too hard for Him, NO! HE IS :ALL SEEING:ALL KNOWING, GOD. TRUST HIM.

    I think this is Exodus 16 is a good reminder that God will take care of us and to put Faith and trust in him also not to do things are own way ,which I know I'm always working on

    Verse 12: Jehovah God can hear any murmuring against his spokesmen and he takes such murmuring personal.
  • A disciple
    What stands out as extraordinary in the character and behavior of the people? These special and favored people saw all of God's mighty works done right before their eyes; and yet they could not find a way to receive His Spirit, repent and be converted, and become His loving obedient children! Our generation has had the Bible, and all of history testifying to us: but where is the fruit?
    Albeit God given his heavenly blessings, we often tend to testify him for mundane things, we trailed ourselves, God always blessed us in ample manner, we need to know where we are lacking.
  • Zoran for verse 23
    Hi Rachel, I am a seventh day Adventist - Sabbath is on Saturday. Jews kept it and still do ever so methodically. Sunday as the rest of holy day was instituted a few hundred years after Christ's death. Sunday observance is not biblical. It is an invention. Jesus kept Sabbth so did his disciples before and after his death. The only way Roman Catholics or other Christian denominations justify keeping Sunday as Sabbath and some even call it Sabbath is by saying Jesus rose on Sunday - let's celebrate it - but this is a human invention. Roman Catholic Church even proves that Protestant church adhere to Catholicism by keeping Sunday holy. Other Christian denominations say it doesn't matter which day you worship God on - so long as you do. But God did not sanctify Sunday or bless. I chose to marry and love and cherish just one specific woman - not any other. So there are endless theories out there as to why Sunday should be the day - but the truth remains: it is not in the bible - it's false. I was Christian orthodox Eastern Europe and when I heard about Saturday being the last day of the week - the holy day - I was so blown away - and I decided that I did not want to be orthodox Christian anymore. I was in my early teens and I am 32 now - it has been by far the one decision that I like very very much.

    Fern Herbert, you are seeing the issue from a biblical perspective. However, I would advise all to also consider what Jesus Christ said Christ said concerning the sabbath Mark. 2:27 "and he-Jesus-said, the sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath ". Some people need to work on the sabbath to feed their families. God bless us all and in the understanding of his Word. Praise Jehovah in the highest through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen!

    God admonished the Israelites not to store up manna for the next day. Matthew tells us that we should not worry about what we should eat etc. The father knows our needs and by faith we are to trust him daily for all things.
  • Fern herbert
    My take from this, we should prepare our Sabbath meals the day before.so then it is wrong to cook dinner on Sunday? It would also be wrong to eat out,as so many families do after church, because we are causing other people to work to prepare our meals. Am I seeing this right?
  • Feeling that the Father asks us for 1 10 of our time to be devoted to Him in thanks and praise. 1 10 of our waking hours is practically one full day minus the time it takes to eat and attend to our personal needs. By doing this consistently, we learn how to live the rest of our time in the mindset of nurturing our relationship with Him, and wanting to please Him by our actions on a daily basis.

    children of isreal have stayed for so long in egypt and is affecting them because they don 't who God is .
  • This verse really shows Jehovah God 's patience with his people. He gave his law and instructions on what should not be done, but the people were hard headed and tried it anyway. We can not think that we know more than God because we will always be proven wrong. This is what happened to the Israelites and the same thing will happen to any who think that they can disregard God 's laws and standards without suffering any consequences.

    Interesting they could only gather enough manna for one day unless it was the day before the sabbath they would store up two days Now the interested part was that just before they entered into Canaan they were told to gather enough manna so the future gerneration could see what they ate while in the dessert Well I at least wonder if they may have put some manna in the Ark I don t think that s too far out there after all it was important for God to tell Moses to have the people to store up for future generations Moses said This is the thing which the LORD commandeth Fill an omer of it to be kept for your generations that they may see the bread wherewith I have fed you in the wilderness when I brought you forth from the land of Egypt
  • Rachel for verse 23
    Is the sabbath Saturday? Or Sunday? My boyfriend and I are conflicting about this.
  • Teresa for verse 36
    I'm thinking that this verse,"Now an omer is the tenth part of an ephan." Can this also be a correlation to our tithes offerings which is a tenth of our giving back to the Lord for blessing us too?
  • Regina watkins
    How much is an omer and how much is an ephah?
    This whole chapter reminds me of Matthew 6:34 "Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof." God didn't want them to worry about anything for He is in control; but unfortunately, Israel didn't listen to God. Likewise, we also, sometime do the same thing. We murmur, we complain. We have to put our trust in God for He knows what is going to happen tomorrow.

    Even our self we are just like Israelites. We easily forget good things which God do to us we remember God only if we are in trouble but immediately after we are out of trouble. We turn to our back to God. Fortunate we have a long hearted God who tolerates us always. Our Lovely, God but we can't stand alone because Satan wants to win us. So let's pray God to help us.
  • Daniel for verse 12
    The right hand of GOD is wonderful,
  • Serina
    The reading is showing how God is proving himself to the children of Isreal. That he has delivered them out of bondage an blessing them with manna from heaven and all he is asking them is to praise an worship him for what he has done and is getting ready to all they had to do was be obedient an live by the laws which he commamded them to do along with trusting in him for their every need.
  • Jesus
    Just to let my brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ, quickly ask for forgiveness to our True God , and our brothers and sisters in Christ , and rebuke and stop murmuring among each other, because that is what we do verry often. Kill the murmmur immediately, love u, God bless u
  • Odette Tan
    This chapter shows how sinful our nature really is. After such a great deliverance by God, one would think that the Jews would have been thankful to Him the rest of their lives. But unfortunately after such a short period they started to murmur against Moses and God Himself.
    So it is with us believers - after experiencing God's work of salvation thru Jesus Christ, we become guilty of spiritual amnesia, complain against the God who saved us and at times live in disobedience to Him Who brought us out of the pit of sin.

    I mean to say moses had to educate children of Israel in the laws of God .....
  • Tosin
    This chapter showed that the children of Israel did not know their God's laws, but only his deeds. They were still living in the past and forgot that they were free. No wonder, Moses had to take time to deducted the people of Israel on how to relate with their God. Therefore, I can see that the job of Pastors is not a joke. They are doing awesome job and my prayer for them is that they would not faint at their work. May the lord make all of you stronger and wiser. Amen.
  • J.R.
    How awesome would it be to live back then? To see the Lord among you, and lead you by day and night...VISIBLY!!! I would never ever have lost any faith if I lived back then, the Lord was in your face, litterally!
