Now for the interesting aspect of how Moses got all the details from God. When Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt, they wandered in the wilderness for 40 years because that generation did not trust God and refused to conquer the land God promised them. They complained that there were giants in the land which they could not subdue. God would have given them the victory if they had trusted, but they did not.
So, during those 40 years, God met with Moses frequently in the ‘tent of meeting’. God gave him the factual truths about creation, the history of mankind and the calling of Abraham to begin a nation of God’s chosen people.Those people, the Israelites, were supposed to show the world who God was and what He was all about--His love, His Mercy and His power.
Unfortunately, over time the Israelites, in spite of Moses’ warnings, disobeyed God’s commands, worshiped idols and lost God’s blessings and Divine providence and were set aside as a nation. One day in the future however, Israel will regain the prominence they had during the reigns of kings David and Solomon and finally Jesus will become their King and Messiah.
