Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! (Isaiah 5:20).

God had delivered Israel from the bonds of slavery and oppression, yet here they were accusing God of taking them out into the dessert to kill them. Despite all evidence seen with their eyes and heard with their ears, they still accused God of trying to kill them. The two people that brought back a “good” report about their ability to take posses the Promised Land, they wanted to stone, Joshua and Caleb. These two men knew who their God was and knew that it was Him who would fight for them not they themselves.

The Israelites were spared because of God’s name and be a witness to His ability to protect, but also because Moses interceded for them. Here we also see that our sin can be pardoned but the consequences of sinful actions must be played out. To often we think that God forgiveness means, “crop failure” for our consequences, that is not so. God spoke about the cycle of seasons in Genesis and it is a foundation that will never be removed as long as the earth remains. [While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease. 9Genesis 8:22)].

Upset that they “blew it” a few try to go to take the land but God is not with them so the enemy chases them. Lesson: Not matter how sincere one might be if God is not with you, you will fail even if you are sincere, you are sincerely wrong. It’s all about obeying the voice of the Lord.
