MOSES STRIKING THE ROCK

MOSES’ STRIKING

When the children of Israel complained of thirsty in the wilderness the second time, God told Moses to speak to the rock before their eyes, Numbers 20:8. But instead, Moses disobeyed and struck the rock. Yet God answered and provided the water immediately, in fact that the water came out abundantly did not imply God was pleased with Moses’ disobedience, and the fact that Moses disobeyed God did not stop God from performing miracle through him.

Numbers 20:7, 8, “Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 8 “Take the rod; you and your brother Aaron gather the congregation together. Speak to the rock before their eyes, and it will yield its water; thus you shall bring water for them out of the rock, and give drink to the congregation and their animals.”

Numbers 20:11, “Then Moses lifted his hand and struck the rock twice with his rod; and water came out abundantly, and the congregation and their animals drank.”

As a minister, you can be carrying out ungodly projects in your ministry, building multimillion edifice while many members are suffering of lack of accommodation and food to eat, yet you can still experience abundant success and progress. Your church can build university with expensive fees, and yet the presence of God still continues. Your church can be unfaithful to the biblical way of using tithes and offering, and still experience God’s presence abundantly. Your pastors and church can be using different ungodly administrative systems, preaching heresies, and still continue to experience signs and wonders.

As a person, you can be displeasing God, doing things that are not approved by the Lord, and yet things will be working for you. You know what? Moses disobeyed God and miracle followed his disobedience, but he was disqualified from entering the Promised Land. Your disobedience may not stop God’s blessing in your life, and as a minister of God or church, your disobedience, selfishness, lies, worldliness, indulgences, unfaithfulness to spending offerings and extravagant lifestyle may not necessarily hinder God’s flowing of anointing and flourishing of blessings in your lives and church, but they will definitely disqualify you from making heaven if you do not repent now.

If a minister of God sins or begin to live or teach enormously, he may still continue to experience signs and wonders and the anointing flowing, but his name has been removed from the book of life and he no longer qualify for heaven, yet the anointing may keep on flowing with miracles, signs and wonders. After God answered Moses’s prayer with miracle of water supply even in his disobedience, God sentenced him in His judgment in the following verse of Numbers. 20:12, “Then the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, “Because you did not believe Me, to hallow Me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them.”

God is not a respecter of any man, even the greatest man of God on earth in the Old Testament, in the person of Moses, was judged by God. God is not partial to overlook or cover sin of anyone, minister or members. He could not overlook the sin of a man after His heart like David, but gave due punishment. So any minister or Christian who commits sin, who teaches or lives in an unbiblical manner may still experience continuous flowing of anointing and blessings but he is playing with eternal judgment and condemnation if he does not repent now.

Jesus said, “Many will say to me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord have we not prophesied in your name, cast out demons in your name, and done many wonders in your name? And then I will declare to them, I never knew you, depart from me, you who practice lawlessness!.” Matthew 7:22, 23.
