Good Morning Everyone:
I would like to look at 2 sets of Bible verses, the first is Numbers 20:7-12 which reads - 7 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 8 “Take the rod; you and your brother Aaron gather the congregation together. Speak to the rock before their eyes, and it will yield its water; thus you shall bring water for them out of the rock, and give drink to the congregation and their animals.” 9 So Moses took the rod from before the Lord as He commanded him.
10 And Moses and Aaron gathered the assembly together before the rock; and he said to them, “Hear now, you rebels! Must we bring water for you out of this rock?” 11 Then Moses lifted his hand and struck the rock twice with his rod; and water came out abundantly, and the congregation and their animals drank.
12 Then the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, “Because you did not believe Me, to hallow Me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them.”
The second Bible verse comes from Deuteronomy 34:1-4, which reads - 34 Then Moses went up from the plains of Moab to Mount Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, which is across from Jericho. And the Lord showed him all the land of Gilead as far as Dan, 2 all Naphtali and the land of Ephraim and Manasseh, all the land of Judah as far as the Western Sea,[a] 3 the South, and the plain of the Valley of Jericho, the city of palm trees, as far as Zoar. 4 Then the Lord said to him, “This is the land of which I swore to give Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, saying, ‘I will give it to your descendants.’ I have caused you to see it with your eyes, but you shall not cross over there.” From this first set of Bible verses we see that God gave Moses a set of instructions to follow about getting the water out of the rock, and Moses sinned and did what he wanted to get the water from the rock his way not God's way. At that point he sinned in front of God, so God had to use Moses as an example of what happens when a person sins against God. God showed Moses the promise land but because Moses sin God could not allow Moses to touch the promise land.
The second set of Bible verses is found in 1 Timothy 2:9-12 which is - 9 in like manner also, that the women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with propriety and moderation, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing, 10 but, which is proper for women professing godliness, with good works. 11 Let a woman learn in silence with all submission. 12 And I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, but to be in silence. I bring this verse up to you because we all know that the bible is God's instruction to man kind, if it's 2,000 years ago or today an instruction is an instruction. I also believe that a sin is still a sin, turning away from God, maybe the Epesians had the same type of sins 2,000 years ago as the modern church of today does. The modern church of today wants to turn there back on God, in teaching social science, and not the true bible the way it was written. I believe that the modern church of today is going to be like Moses and not touch the promised land. I do believe that the promised land that we have to believe in is HEAVEN because it is promised by God that the true believers will live there with him and he will take care of us there.
In closing I would like to add that the early church when it was started on the day of Pentacost was not called Christianity like it is today, but it was called the way, because they followed God's way of life. I am giving up on Christianity for The Way becauseI want to follow God's way in believing the Bible, and not man's way. The modern church believe that by teaching social science they will see the promised land, I say that the modern church will not be allowed in the promised land, but they will see it by reading God's word from the book of Revelation.
I hope that everyone will read Revelation and I also hope that they will have a good day after reading God's word.
