MOSES .. THE MAN OF GOD!
There arose not a PROPHET whom the Lord knew “Face to face”
He is one of the greatest figures in the Bible and in all History.
His life falls into three clearly marked periods .. of Forty years each.
The first Forty years, he was a Prince in Egypt .
The second Forty years he was a Shepherd in Midian .. ACT 7:23 .
The final forty years he was the Leader of Israel .. EX 7:7.
HE WAS AN OUTSTANDING TYPE OF CHRIST.
All great men of History possessed some prominent virtue or quality….
Abraham .. was a man of faith!
Joseph .. was a man of humility!
Jonathan .. was loyal and generous!
Elijah .. was a man with a zeal for God!
Moses really had no distinguishing characteristic above the others.
His Virues and Graces were all equel to each other.
These characteristics worked in harmony with each other to form a Beautiful and Noble Person .
You may have concluded that you are not a MOSES, OR A JOSEPH, OR AN ELIJAH .. Do you think this?
“I have not done very much to earn the Praises of men, or the Acceptance Of God.”
Remember, these people were called forth at the moment the world needed them, and fully equipped to do all that God asked of them.
YOU .. ARE CALLED FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS ! ‘2022.’
Your world may seem small and limited .. but from God’s perspective,
YOU ARE MOST SUITABLE FOR YOUR WORLD!
MOSES died at the age of 120 years.
He is the only man that God Himself had buried. God laid His Servant’s body in a valley of the land of Moab .. but no man knew where!
They searched for it .. but to no avail. The body did not remain there however, for despite contention from satan, (See Jude 9).. it was raised and glorified, and Moses reappeared in it on the Mount of “Transfiguration.”
For us who are alive today .. Be content with who you are. 1Cor 15:58.
“BE STEADFAST UNMOVEABLE ALWAYS ABOUNDING THE WORK OF THE LORD..AS YOUR LABOUR IS NOT IN VAIN IN THE LORD!”
God sees you and is with you .. and is willing to bless your exploits, as you do his will in this time of your life.
Allow him to change you and mould your character, and empower your gifting .. To bring honour and glory to his Name.
God did not allow Moses to take the people of Israel into the promised land as we know .. it was at the waters of Meribah-Kadesh, where he failed to honour the Holiness of God.
See Deut 32:48-52.
He was allowed to view the land of Canaan before he died and was buried by the Lord.
Our Lord is “just and righteous” in all his ways though you don’t always understand them .. Move on my friend in your God-given calling.
“THERE WAS NOT A MAN LIKE UNTO MOSES WHOM THE LORD KNEW FACE TO FACE,
IN ALL THE SIGNS AND WONDERS, WHICH THE LORD TOLD HIM TO DO IN THE LAND OF EGYPT TO PHARAOH AND TO ALL HIS SERVANTS AND TO ALL THE LAND.
AND IN ALL HIS TERROR THAT MOSES SHOWED IN THE SIGHT OF ALL ISRAEL.”
