The Israelites discovered God’s patience with them after they left Egypt, but their constant whining and grumbling exhausted Him as they continued to speak of Egypt. It did not matter what miracles or how well the God of Abraham, Jacob, and Isaac took care of them in the wilderness; there were the doubters and rabble-rousers who kept the camp in constant confusion. The trouble came from Satan because he knew the Israelites harden hearts and sought to kill them with their wicked ways if he could continue the disorder and dysfunction. Salvation promised to come from the Lamb of God and delivered through the Scriptures and later through Messiah Jesus. What saved the Israelites? It was the faith of Moses who maintained reverent prayer for the people and the cleansing of the rabble-rousers before they could enter the Promised Land. What do I mean by cleansing? Cleansing of sin from those who feared the Amalekites, the Nephilim (the sons of Anak are part of the Nephilim) stated in Numbers 13:31-33, NKJV. Older Israelites from age 20 and up doubted God and Moses, and God prevented them from seeing the Promised Land and own it.
Believing Israelites were born and learned the details of God. They sought to obey and follow God for many years before Satan tricked the weaker believers, and disobedience began again. If it wasn’t for God’s grace and mercy, no one could live, and the miraculous ways of God and His boundless love for humanity emitted from the earth. For He looks out at His universe and blesses it daily and sees what we cannot see—He knows what we don’t know, and He loves us more than we could ever imagine in our earthly vessels that we occupy.
Once you experience God Almighty, you will never turn back; but you will want to learn how to receive healing from the Holy Spirit. Once you can “touch the hem of His garment,” then you will become a whole person in Christ Jesus, our Savior, who came to save us from our wretched sins. God is so amazing and full of love, and once you understand God is pure LOVE, then you will be ready to take the journey to the edge of the universe with Him and give praise and honor to His Son, Jesus Christ. What a loving and untarnished sacrifice Jesus gave just for us. Consider for a moment — how much Jesus loved us to undergo such harsh punishment before He was on the cross. He died such a horrific death just for us so that we could enter the Holy of Holies and be before the face of God Almighty when we die.
