Biblical Numerology: NUMBER TWO – Part VII

 

MORE ON MOSES AND AARON

 A correction needs to be made as we move on, and with it, gain more valuable insights into the joint work, peerless and profound experiences of Moses and Aaron in jointly leading ancient Israel to earthly Canaan. From these, both those in leadership positions and congregants of spiritual Israel today may derive instruction and inspiration.

 MOSES AND AARON VERSUS EGYPT

 Teamwork, works. Two brothers, Moses, three years younger than Aaron, sons of Amram and Jochebed, devout Levites, were raised and empowered by God to do a special work and mission for His people with clearly defined separate areas of responsibilities. The first earthly sanctuary with its accompanying detailed, yet simple services teaching the plan of redemption, patterned after the great original in heaven, was built by Moses.

God fitted Moses for the greatest work in his time. It was Christ who appeared to him in a burning bush. At the end of their earthly sojourn, Aaron died first, cradled in the arms of Moses on Mount Hor where Moses buried him, alone. Read more
