Water from a Rock - the miracle that saves us!
|A storm is coming are you built upon the Rock?|
I was watching a well know christian teacher on the tv the other day and he brought up a greatly inspired point about the story of Moses and the rock. I am retelling in my words but I really do not get the point across as well as his did so you will need to read and click on the foot notes to see his video too.
As many people know, that when Moses left Egypt with the children of God that after all those miracles God did to pharaoh he let them leave. However They then came to the mighty river and it was too deep to cross. AND the wicked King had changed his mind and was after them with all his army. Kinda like stuck between a ROCK and Hard place we use to hear about so often.
At this point God again saved them and throughout the night a long hard wind blew and in the morning the children of Israel crossed through the river on DRY land. This was spiritually showing the spiritual Baptism we all need to agree to before we can be a child of God! That will of ours has to say, YES I am willing to change and step forth into Your way of living!
So after this great miracle and the people are safe on the other side and all of the pharaoh's army is devastated the people walk on toward the promise land. (aka the promises of God's salvation and care) Not long after the people start griping and complaining. First one thing then another. NEVER happy or thankful. In exodus 17 we read that:
