That is why the Holy Spirit says, "Today you must listen to His Voice. Don't Harden your hearts against Him as Israel did When They Rebelled, When They Tested God's Patience In The Wilderness. Where your ancestors tried My Patience, even though They Saw My Miracles For Forty Years. So I Was Angry With Them, and I said, "Their Hearts Always Turn Away From Me. They Refuse to do what I Tell Them; So In My Anger I Made A Vow: They Will Never Enter My Place Of Rest." Hebrews 3:7-11 Lesson here: Just as God chose Israel to Be His House of Possession, His Very Own People; not because of anything they had done, but just because He was God Yahweh. God Yahweh had chosen a nation for Himself, to show Himself strong on their behalf. He wanted the rest of the world to know, These Are My People And I Am Their God. Israel begin following God's Yahweh's instructions.
Yes, even though Moses was their leader, God Was Leading Moses and Instructing them all. Obedience is a Key Factor, for survival in The Kingdom of God. This one nation who was given the Rules and Regulations, which we know as The Law of Moses, Refused Relationship, ( Which Was Hearing God Yahweh For Themselves) which was replaced with the Law of Moses. Notice the law was NEVER Given to the World, it was given to The Nation of Israel In The Wilderness, Because Of Their Disobedience. God Yahweh wanted more than just the Nation, He wanted The Whole World. He wanted to bring the Whole World Under A Covenant of Relationship With Himself. John 3:16-17 God so Loved The World that He Gave His Only Son, so that Everyone who Believes In Him Will Not Perish But Have Eternal Life. God did not Send His Son into the World to Condemn It, But To Save It. There is no Judgment Awaiting Those Who Trust Him. But those who do not Trust Him Have Already Been Judged For Not Believing In The Only Son of God." This is why The Holy Spirit Commands Us To Listen To His Voice Today. Eternal Life is Through Faith and Obedience to Christ! Pt 1 Blessings, Gary
