Moses spent 40 years in the wilderness in the land of Midian before God called him to his life's mission. What on earth was he doing during all those years? How did he cope with going from being a prince in the most powerful country on earth to living life as a shepherd in the wilderness? What prepared him for this experience and what was God doing in Moses' life to prepare him for the mission ahead? Over the past few months, I've been studying a Bible guide on being in the crucible with Christ. Last week, I was studying about meekness in the life of Moses and got inspired to study his life a little closer, particularly his life before he received the calling that defined his life on earth and in death. As you might know, I only write when inspired to, and I thought my findings this time around were too interesting not to share. Happy reading!

This remains valid even for us today as we are now 'spiritual Israel' and what will happen to His children has already been foretold in Bible prophecies. Brilliant! … Continue reading God always foretells what will happen to His chosen people
End of salvation of ‘Israel’
Daniel 9:27 Jesus' ministry lasted 3.5 yrs. His death (spring of AD 31) on the cross brought an end to the ceremonial sacrifices and offerings (evidenced in the splitting of the veil in the temple). These sacrifices were shadows i.e. they pointed to Christ’s death as part of God’s plan of redemption. Jesus' instruction in … Continue reading End of salvation of ‘Israel’
