"Re: Nicole-Moses and
the children of Israel in the desert"
Hi, Nicole and doves
I normally don't write, I'd rather read
what others have to say and
contemplate, but the children in the desert being an example to
us and that we
really need to pay close attention to what the children of
Israel did and what
The Lord's response was is extremely important.
First of all, God does not change. We do. Malachi 3:6
Second, Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. (Hebrews
Third, Paul said that these things were written as an
example or a warning to
US, the believers, NOT the unbelievers
Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they
are written for
our admonition, upon whom the ends
of the ages are come...(1 Corinthians 10:11)
Can we all agree that we are at
the end of the age ? So we need to see
what the examples for us are.
1. Now these things happened as examples FOR US that we should
not crave evil
things, as they also craved.
Someone once told me that if there is any
doubt about whether or not
something is sin or evil it's just best to abstain.
Better to be labeled a "holy roller" than to live
carelessly in this wicked
and evil generation and risk sinning against The Lord.
2. And do not be idolators, as some of them were, as it is
sat down to eat and drink and stood up to play"
Is eating sin? no Is drinking sin? no. So
what is this talking about?
Jesus said that before He comes back to get us, that there will
be those who
"But if that slave says in his heart, 'My master will be a long
coming,' and begins to beat the slaves, both men and women, and
to eat and
drink and get drunk; The master of that servant will come on a
day when he does
not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will
cut him to pieces and
assign him a place with the unbelievers. Luke 12:45-46
3.Nor let us act immorally as some of them did and twenty-three
thousand fell in
one day. 1 Corinthians 10:8
4. Nor let us try the Lord as some of them did and were
destroyed by the
serpents. 1 Corinthians 10:9
5. Nor grumble as some of them did, and were destroyed by the
and that's another thing... what is it with this attitude
that sin is not a horrible serious thing? That
oh, I'll repent later like the sin they want to commit is no big
"no big thing" cost My Heavenly Father His only begotten Son.
That "no big
thing" was laid on my Savior at the cross and HE suffered
"that no big thing"so that I (and everyone else who will
repent of their sins)
can be cleansed by His blood and be adopted by the Father.
I am accepted
THROUGH Jesus, no other way.
so let's not treat these sins as of no consequence and insult
the precious blood
by which we've been bought and paid for.
Brothers and sisters, these are not small things. This is not a
game of one
upmanship of who debates the best. The book of James says that
if we are friends
of the world we make ourselves the enemy of God. Quickly our
Lord and Savior is
going to grab us out of this world, so please... get ready. Make
you're washed in the blood. Ask the Lord to show you what you
need to repent of
and then do it without delay.Please let's let the Word of God be
our guide and
final authority. Not what we feel or think. Not what the
traditions of this
world tell us. Are we not bought with a price? Are we not in
this world but not
of it? What brings persecution is living a Godly life. For those
who would live
Godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. So if you are
persecution for living for Christ, then rejoice. A servant is no
His master. If they hated Him...they will hate you. Is the world
around you? Then something is wrong, for The Holy Spirit who
dwells in you
convicts this world of it's sins and the judgement to come.
Doves, let's not
spend these final days and hours arguing amongst ourselves,
seeing how close we
can live like the world and get away with it. Instead, let's see
how close we
can follow the Savior. Let's be like Enoch, not Lot.
And if you are reading this and you don't belong to Jesus, turn
sins... what good have they done you? They may be pleasurable
for awhile, but
they end in death. Repent, turn away from them and ask Jesus to
forgive you and
cleanse you with His blood. Then read the Bible, God's love
letter to His
children. Ask the Holy Spirit to lead teach and guide you into
all truth. Then
obey what you've learned. Let our conversation be seasoned with
salt and let us
be at peace with one another.
on a separate thought... isn't it amazing that in spite of all
the rebellion in
the wilderness, the cloud by day never left, the pillar of fire
never left, the
manna continued to show up, their clothes never wore out they
were provided for,
and protected from their enemies... so if The Lord will do that
rebellious... how much more will He provide for those who love
and obey Him?
Please think on these things.
With much love to all the doves both who write or just read.
