Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

February 17 - Morning

"The Lord said to Moses, “How long will these people treat me with contempt? How long will they refuse to believe in me, in spite of all the signs I have performed among them? I will strike them down with a plague and destroy them, but I will make you into a nation greater and stronger than they.” 

- Numbers 14:11-12

The Lord Was Ready to Start Over    

It is interesting that in his anger, the Lord does not send fire or plague this time, but instead speaks to Moses about his anger. The Lord first asks, “How long will these people treat me with contempt?” The word “contempt” is na’as, which is a very strong word for utter disrespect and total indifference towards a person. God has tired of these people and his remedy is to start over with Moses, who is himself a descendant of Abraham and a seed from the promised son, Isaac. God will simply wipe this generation out and focus on the descendants of Moses, which he will turn into an even greater nation than the current faithless nation disrespecting him in the wilderness.

“I will strike them down with a plague and destroy them, but I will make you into a nation greater and stronger than they.” – Numbers 14:12

This was the second time in the fourteen months since they had left Israel that God has made this suggestion. He also said something similar at the incident that involved the golden calf:

“Now leave me alone so that my anger may burn against them and that I may destroy them. Then I will make you into a great nation.” – Exodus 32:10

Moses then steps in and intercedes for the people reminding God of his promises, his word, his nature and his reputation among the nations who will hear that he slaughtered his own people in the wilderness after having “tried” to deliver them. (Numbers 14:13-22)

  Christian Quote from Church History
"“To have a right to do a thing is not at all the same as to be right in doing it.” 
- G.K. Chesterton
Something to Ponder??

On February 8, 356, Athanasius is sent into exile for the third time since the Church’s Council of Nicea in 325 for rejecting Arianism (the belief that Jesus, the Son of God, was created rather than eternally existing). Arianism had been rejected at the Council of Nicea, but in 356 Arian believing Christians controlled the government (and, thus, controlled the church). Athanasius would go into exile two more times before he died.

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Cagar (Hb) – Shut (Eng) – cagar is the Hebrew word that means “to shut,” “to close,” “to shut up,” “to imprison.” Doors and gates are cagar (Genesis 19:10; Joshua 2:7)
In Judges 3:22 Ehud’s sword was cagar with King Eglon’s fat.
In 1 Kings 11:27 Solomon cagar the gap in the city walls on the north side.


Ancient Aramaic texts have been found that use the word EL for “God.” This means that Jesus’ words spoken
from the cross,
Eli, Eli lema sabachthani,” were all Aramaic words and not a mixture of Hebrew and Aramaic as was once thought. (Matthew 27:46)

Confession to Action   Facts and Information

The Lord tests our hearts like silver and gold are purified in extreme temperatures.
I will consider tests as steps in the purification of my heart and
the proving of the genuineness of my faith.

  "The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold,
    but the Lord tests the heart." - Proverbs 17:3

Nehemiah's Wall in Jerusalem 445 BC

This is the Hebrew letter Kaph...the Kaph does not have a tittle, but the letter Beth has a tittle (see Beth here).

Jesus said,

"For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass,
one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law,
till all be fulfilled."
- Matthew 5:18, KJ

This is a photo of a first century column that I saw in Jerusalem in front of the Rotschild House. A few scholars wonder if this could have been one of the many magnificent columns in the Colonnade that encircled the Temple Mount between 18 BC-70 AD as described by Josephus? We consider the options and research continues... (image of a model of Solomon's Colonade here)
