The Word: Episode 1211 Daniel 11:5-7

“Standoff. Showdown.”

February 26, 2020

“Standoff. Showdown.”

Blessings folk!

The situation is escalating.

Korah and company were rebelling against Moses/God.

Moses was angry.

Num 16:15

Then Moses became very angry and said to the LORD,
“Do not regard their offering! I have not taken a single donkey from them,
nor have I done harm to any of them.”


God told him what to do.

Moses did it…

Num 16:16-19

Moses said to Korah,
“You and all your company be present before the LORD tomorrow,
both you and they along with Aaron.

“Each of you take his firepan and put incense on it,
and each of you bring his censer before the LORD,
two hundred and fifty firepans;
also you and Aaron shall each bring his firepan.”

So they each took his own censer and put fire on it, and laid incense on it;
and they stood at the doorway of the tent of meeting, with Moses and Aaron.

Thus Korah assembled all the congregation against them at the doorway of the tent of meeting. And the glory of the LORD appeared to all the congregation.

They all did as Moses commanded…that is interesting since they were rebelling.

Each had a firepan.
Each had incense.
Each was ready to do the duty only allowed by Aaron and his descendants.

Moses and Aaron stood in the doorway of the tent of meeting.
Korah and the congregation stood against them at the doorway of the tent of meeting.

Standoff!
Showdown!

Then the glory of the Lord appeared to all the congregation.
Uh oh…

“Moses Became Very Angry…”

February 25, 2020

“Moses Became Very Angry…”

Blessings folk!

Dathan and Abiram refused to come before Moses.

Moses’ response?

Num 16:15

Then Moses became very angry and said to the LORD,
“Do not regard their offering!
I have not taken a single donkey from them, nor have I done harm to any of them.”


Moses was angry.

He went before the Lord and boldly proclaimed “do not regard their offering!”

A command?
A request in the heat of anger?

Moses was declaring before the Lord that he was innocent of their accusation.

He had not taken anything from them.
He had done not harm to any.

Of course, God knew this already.
Of course, Moses knew that God knew.

The Lord will listen.
The Lord will will receive our emotions.

Fear not taking things before the Lord…

The Word: Episode 1209 Daniel 11:1-2

“We Will Not Come Up!”

February 24, 2020

“We Will Not Come Up!”

Blessings folk!

Remember, we are looking at the “rebellion of Korah” mentioned in Jude.

Jude 1:11
Woe to them!
For they have gone the way of Cain,
and for pay they have rushed headlong into the error of Balaam,
and perished in the rebellion of Korah.


The creepers that had crept into the Body were like these men.
Jude was using them as an example.

We know that Korah, Dathan, Abiram et. al. were rebelling against Moses/Aaron.

We know that this rebellion was really against God.

What was their complaint?

They wanted to know why Moses/Aaron were the leaders.
They wanted to be priests of the Aaronite line.

Then this…gives more insight.

Num 16:12-14

Then Moses sent a summons to Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab; but they said,
“We will not come up.

“Is it not enough that you have brought us up out of a land flowing with milk and honey to have us die in the wilderness, but you would also lord it over us?

“Indeed, you have not brought us into a land flowing with milk and honey,
nor have you given us an inheritance of fields and vineyards.
Would you put out the eyes of these men?
We will not come up!”

Moses sent for Dathan and Abiram.
A summons.
Sounds “official”.

They refused.
Why?

They knew that the Lord had promised through Moses to bring the people into a land flowing with milk and honey.

That had yet to occur.

Now they were accusing Moses - and the Lord - of bringing them “up out of a land flowing with milk and honey…” to die in the wilderness.

They viewed the slavery they endured as “…land flowing…”
Anger, bitterness, resentment, jealousy, etc. colors the truth of the past, present and future.

They wanted inheritance, now!
They wanted fields, now!
They wanted milk, now!
They wanted honey, now!

They thought they would be better leaders to attain the promise.

Oh, really?

“They Were Separated…”

February 23, 2020

“They Were Separated…”

Blessings folk!

Korah and company rebelled against Moses.

Moses sought the Lord.

The Lord told them all to gather the next day.
He would choose.

Num 16:8-11

Then Moses said to Korah, “Hear now, you sons of Levi,

is it not enough for you that the God of Israel has separated you from the rest of the congregation of Israel, to bring you near to Himself, to do the service of the tabernacle of the LORD, and to stand before the congregation to minister to them;

and that He has brought you near, Korah, and all your brothers, sons of Levi, with you?
And are you seeking for the priesthood also?

“Therefore you and all your company are gathered together against the LORD;
but as for Aaron, who is he that you grumble against him?”


Moses dealt with the issue.
The rebellious leadership were not satisfied with their “position”.

They were Levites.
They were separated by the God of Israel for a task.
They were separated from the congregation of Israel.
They were separated unto God so that He would bring them near to Himself.
They were separated to do the service of the tabernacle of the Lord.
They were separated to stand before the congregation to minister to them.

But they wanted more.

They wanted to be priests of the line of Aaron.

Moses tells them that they are gathering against the Lord.
Not against Moses.
Not against Aaron.
Against the Lord.

They were not grumbling against man.

They were grumbling against the Lord God.

Too many do so today…
