To have a priesthood many believe that we must have the red heifer ashes in order to cover our uncleanliness, our tamei condition caused by being exposed to the dead; but to make the ashes of the red heifer we must have a priesthood. What is the answer to this “catch 22′” situation? Yehovah’s word always has answers.
From the last verse of Numbers chapter 19 to the first verse of chapter 20, thirty-eight years have passed for the Israelites in the wilderness. The chapter begins with the death and burial of Miriam in the 1st month of the 40th year. Why 40th year? You’ll have to listen to find out.
We now have a whole new set of men, 20 years to about 40 years old, who are now supposed to follow Moses. But it is hard to overcome the training we received when we were young; and this new group of about 600,000 men, leaders of their families, is no exception.
Moses Hits The Rock
Israel’s seed is once again complaining to Moses and Aaron; this time about a shortage of water. Moses knows that a complaint against him is a complaint against Yehovah and falls on His face to pray for them. Yehovah appears and gives Moses simple and clear instructions, “Take THE rod and speak to the rock.” Moses fails to do this and that means the death of Aaron is at hand and Moses’ death is imminent.
On the first day of the fifth month in the fortieth year Aaron went up Mount Hor and did not return, Israel mourned the death of Aaron for 30 days.
We finished with an outlined overview our conquest of the of the land on the East side of the Jordan and compared that to what we, Yehovah’s called-out people, can expect in the coming last days.
