Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

January 22 - Evening

Moses answered,
“What if they do not believe me or listen to me and say, ‘The Lord did not appear to you’?”
Then the Lord said to him,
“What is that in your hand?”
“A staff,” he replied.     

- Exodus 4:1-2

A Man, a Stick and God    

Understandably, Moses questions the people’s willingness to respond to such a grand announcement such as, “The Lord has sent me to you!” So, Moses asks the Lord about a hypothetical situation that could arise, “What if they do not believe me or listen to me when I claim to have been sent by the Lord, and I say ‘…who, by the way, also appeared to me!’” The last time the Lord is recorded as having appeared to a man is when he appeared to Jacob in Genesis 46:1-4 in Beersheba during a night vision. It has been 430 years since the Lord has appeared to a man in scripture.

The Lord did not give Moses an elaborate skill, a flamboyant miracle or magnificent equipment. The Lord, the one who is “I Am,” asked him, “What do you have, Moses?” And, what was in Moses hand is what God would be able to use. The great “I Am” did not need the sun, the animals, the pharaoh or the chariots of Egypt. He just needed someone and he could use whatever that someone was holding. The power will not be Moses. And, the power will not be material things. A man and a stick will be fine.

God gave Moses three signs to use as credentials when Moses made his announcement that Yahweh had sent him. Moses would turn his staff into a snake, his hand in to leprosy and water into blood. This was enough for the people of Israel and enough for Pharaoh to believe. Now the question was, “Would they obey?”

  Christian Quote from Church History
"My concern is not whether God is on our side;
my greatest concern is
to be on God's side,
for God is always right.”

The Jewish priest who left Jerusalem in Ezra and Nehemiah’s day to join the Samaritans, also built them a Temple on Mount Gerizim just like the one he had helped build for Zerubbabel in Jerusalem. Today there is nothing left of Zerubbabel’s Temple in Jerusalem, since Herod completely replaced it with his own new construction. Yet, the remains of the Samaritan Temple can still be seen and studied to give us an idea of how Zerubbabel’s Temple was built and what it looked like.

Confession to Action   Facts and Information
Do I use what God has given me?
Do I realize the power and effectiveness is not how great my gift is, but how great my God is.
I will diligently develop and use whatever talents, opportunities and gifts God has given to me.

The vanity cycle that results when individuals are captured in the planned manipulation of getting people busy in church activities just so they continue to come to church to be involved so they don't stop coming to church. Church is to strengthen and edify the believer, not capture believers for the funding and operation of a local social system.
