From Numbers 13:
Drawn called Salvation the son of Fish, Jehovah Is Salvation.Tim
Now the man Moses was very humble, more than any man who was on the face of the earth.A lot of people get distracted by Moses being the author of this verse. He's writing about himself in the third person.
Now the man Moses was very weak, more than any man who was on the face of the earth.That's probably a much better translation and picture of what he was trying to convey.
And He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness."The power of Christ rests! We just saw that with Moses, too.
Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
Then the LORD came down in the cloud and spoke to him; and He took of the Spirit who was upon him and placed Him upon the seventy elders.Interesting to note:
And when the Spirit rested upon them, they prophesied.
Then Moses assembled all the congregation of the sons of Israel, and said to them, "These are the things that the LORD has commanded you to do: For six days work may be done, but on the seventh day you shall have a holy day, a sabbath of complete rest to the LORD; whoever does any work on it shall be put to death.The death penalty for working and not resting! That's how serious this is.
"You shall not kindle a fire in any of your dwellings on the sabbath day."This passage leaves me with a few questions.
One person regards one day above another, another regards every day alike. Each person must be fully convinced in his own mind. He who observes the day, observes it for the Lord, and he who eats, does so for the Lord, for he gives thanks to God; and he who eats not, for the Lord he does not eat, and gives thanks to God.Tim
