Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

January 29 - Morning

"Then Moses led Israel from the Red Sea and they
went into the Desert of Shur. For three days they traveled in the desert without finding water.
When they came to Marah, they could not drink
its water because it was bitter.
(That is why the place is called Marah.)
So the people grumbled against Moses, saying,
“What are we to drink?"

- Exodus 15:22-24

Deliverance Is Not Transformation


This is one of the amazing stories of the Bible and a shocking illustration of the sinful fickleness of humanity. Three days before these same people participated in what has to be the most remarkable intervention of God witnessed by mankind in human history! It seems that the timely deliverance of the Israelites by the parting of the Red Sea would have secured the Lord a little more than 3 days’ worth of trust and devotion. But, after three days without water the people have resumed grumbling.

Paul writes in First Corinthians 10:11, “These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the culmination of the ages has come.” The experience of the Israelites from their position as fallen sinners with a sin nature concerning their relationship with the Lord and their interaction with situations provides instruction, guidance and warnings for us.

Even though the Israelites had seen the ten plagues and the parting of the Red Sea, they still had not matured or grown in their faith in the Lord. Transformation takes both knowledge of the truth and time for that truth to be processed, practiced and experienced in the soul. These people had seen miracles, but they did not yet know the Lord as an experience in their soul. The same is true for us as believers in Jesus Christ. Our salvation experience can be compared to the parting of the Red Sea, but we still need to learn, process, practice and experience the Lord for the transformation of our souls.
  Christian Quote from Church History
"Life is built on character,
but character is built
on decisions."

Something to Ponder??

John Calvin followed the typical Protestant liturgical model for church services placing the sermon and the preaching at the center. Calvin did add the collection of money after the sermon in his church which was then followed by Protestant churches. Calvin got rid of the pipe organs and the choirs so all singing was without instruments.  

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Kapar (Hb) – Make Atonement (Eng) – kapar is the Hebrew verb that means “to make atonement,” “to cover over,” “to cover or coat with pitch,” “to pacify,” and “to propitiate.” Kapar is used 101 times in the Hebrew Scriptures and half of those are in the book of Leviticus. Sin could be kapar, or “covered,” “atoned,” by prayer or some kind of action, but the focus of the Old Testament was to lead the people to animal sacrifice for kapar. Israel’s national Day of Atonement described in Leviticus 16 would kapar the nation’s sins for a year. The sacrifice would have to be repeated each year, until the work of Jesus on the cross. Since that time Jesus blood is the kapar for the sins of Israel and the world.


In John 4:11 Jesus speaks to the Samaritan woman in Sychar at Jacob’s well near the field that Jacob had given Joseph. The woman said to Jesus, “Sir, you have noting to draw water with, and the well is deep.” Today in the eastern part of the city of Nablus 249 feet from the biblical site of ancient Shechem is an ancient well 135 feet deep hewn through solid rock. This is Jacob’s well and the site of Jesus’ conversation with the Samaritan woman.

Confession to Action   Facts and Information
Do I allow growth and transformation to take place in my life through circumstances?
Or, do I instantly murmur or complain?
I will hear God's word, practice the truth and trust God in situations
as my soul is daily being transformed into the image of Christ.

"Whoever remains stiff-necked after many rebukes
    will suddenly be destroyed—without remedy."
- Proverbs 29:1
