The Drama at Mashaa 2

2 Mins read

One thing funny about the Israelites is that they were having a very short memory; they forget things so easily.

Here we are, in Chapter 17 at Rephidim

Exodus 17:2-7

“Wherefore the people did chide with Moses, and said, Give us water that we may drink. And Moses said unto them, Why chide ye with me? wherefore do ye tempt the LORD?
And the people thirsted there for water; and the people murmured against Moses, and said, Wherefore is this that thou hast brought us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our children and our cattle with thirst?
And Moses cried unto the LORD, saying, What shall I do unto this people? they are almost ready to stone me.
And the LORD said unto Moses, Go on before the people, and take with thee of the elders of Israel; and thy rod, wherewith thou smitest the river, take in thine hand, and go.
Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb, and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.
And he called the name of the place Massah, and Meribah, because of the chiding of the children of Israel, and because they tempted the LORD, saying, Is the LORD among us, or not?”

At Marah, there was water but it was bitter. But at Rephidim, there was no water at all. And don’t forget about their short memory problem. They started grumbling and murmuring against God, and grumbled against Moses to the extent that they almost stoned him.
Moses went ahead to commune with God and God told him to take his staff, call on some elders, and they should meet with Him on Mount Sinai. When they got there, Moses was asked to stroke his rod on the Rock and water came out. And that place was called MASSAH(A place where God was tempted) and MERIBAH(A place where Moses was argued with)

Don’t forget that we aim to bring out Jesus from the scene😊

1 Corinthians 10:1-4Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;
And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and the sea;
And did all eat the same spiritual meat;
And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

If you’ve been blessed by this article, type ‘JESUS, THE ROCK’🤗 🤗 .
