Topic: WHEN MERCY SPEAKS…Part 11
Text: Romans 9:15KJV
15 he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion
In part 10, we discussed that it is a fearful thing to fall into the hand of the living God according to Hebrews 10:30 using the story of king David in 1st Chronicles 21 as a case study. Today we still want to discuss laying emphasis that it is very dangerous to fall into God’s own judgement, i mean God speaking judgement over a life.
Our case study is Moses. Moses was a great man, a very close friend of God whom God communicated with, mouth to mouth according to Numbers 12:7-8
“My servant Moses is not so, who is faithful in all mine house.With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and not in dark speeches; and the similitude of the Lord shall he behold: wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?”
Moses was so dear to God that he requested to see God’s glory and God made him to see his back.
Now in Numbers 20, the Israelites provoked Moses to anger who inturn disobeyed God’s instruction, striking the rock with his rod instead of speaking to the rock, according to Numbers 20: 7-11
“7 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, 8 Take the rod, and gather thou the assembly together, thou, and Aaron thy brother, and speak ye unto the rock before their eyes; and it shall give forth his water, and thou shalt bring forth to them water out of the rock: so thou shalt give the congregation and their beasts drink. 11 And Moses lifted up his hand, and with his rod he smote the rock twice: and the water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their beasts also.”
This disobedience of Moses to God’s instruction made God to pronounce judgement upon him saying he would not bring the Israelites to the promise land. Now the point of emphasis is that as close as Moses was to God, when he sinned, God spoke judgement into his life and even when he pleaded to God to reverse the judgement God did not, rather God told him never to mention that case again according to Deuteronomy 3:23-26
“23 And I besought the Lord at that time, saying, 24 O Lord God, thou hast begun to shew thy servant thy greatness, and thy mighty hand: for what God is there in heaven or in earth, that can do according to thy works, and according to thy might? 25 I pray thee, let me go over, and see the good land that is beyond Jordan, that goodly mountain, and Lebanon. 26 But the Lord was wroth with me for your sakes, and would not hear me: and the Lord said unto me, Let it suffice thee; speak no more unto me of this matter.“
Two lessons from the case study above are:
* God is no respecter of any person, if Moses, as close as he was to God could be seriously delt with when he derailed, it means everyone must fear God and never take him for granted
* It is a fearful thing to fall into the hand of God. God’s judgement surpasses the judgement of sin and devil because there is no escape route except the Lord himself shows mercy. God bless you
* Father, help me not to take you for granted in Jesus Name
