Make a Nation of Moses?
We all know that God promised to
make a nation of Abraham, but did you know that He almost destroyed Israel to
make a nation of Moses?
Exodus 32:7-14 tells us how Moses
was told by God that his people had made themselves a golden calf of molten metal to
worship, while he was being given the 10 Commandments by God on the mountain. We
have all heard this story.
What isn't always told that's in
the story is in
verses 9-10 of this chapter, which says "Yahweh said to Moses, "I can see how
headstrong these people are! Leave me, now, my wrath shall blaze out against
them and devour them; of you, however, I will make a great nation."
Moses pleaded with God in verses
11-14, asking Him to spare the people Israel; and God relented.
We all owe a lot to Moses for
getting Israel out of Egypt and safely to the promised land, but much more than
you thought before, wouldn't you say?
