Speak or Strike

English: Moses striking the rock

English: Moses striking the rock (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Hey person, after those Israelites realized they were stuck in the desert for forty years did they finally settle down and do what God said? Maybe they could find a nice oasis and settle down there for awhile.

They complained some more? I guess all that manna was getting to them.

So they complained that there was no grain or figs, grapevines or pomegranates in the terrible place they were in.

What are they complaining about? I’ve never had a pomegranate.

Yes, I’m listening person.

And then they complained that there was no water to drink.

Hey person, I’m running out of water here. I need my water dish filled up.

No I’m not complaining. And I’m really listening.

Moses and Aaron were getting pretty frustrated with the people but the glory of the Lord appeared to them and He told Moses to take the staff and gather the people together. Then He said to speak to the rock and it will pour out water.

Maybe I can speak to my water dish.

I am listening.

Moses and Aaron gathered the people and Moses was so upset with them that he said, “Listen you rebels, must we bring you water out of this rock?” Then he struck the rock with his staff and water came pouring out.

Maybe I can push my water dish under that rock.

God was mad at Moses and Aaron? Why? He gave them water didn’t he?

Oh. They didn’t do what He said?

God told Moses to speak to the rock and he struck the rock instead. God told Moses and Aaron that they didn’t trust Him enough to honor Him as holy. And because of it they weren’t going to get to bring Israel into the Promised Land.

Hey person, if I trust God will you fill up my water dish? This story has really made me thirsty.

And then maybe I can lead those Israelites into the Promised Land, since it looks like Moses and Aaron aren’t going to finish the job.

    Oh Bongo, if you lead the Israelites into the Promised land, I’d love to follow you!!! I’m sure God will let you lead them if you’re ask him! 🙂
    P.S. *whispers* Now I’m curious who brought Islaerites to Promised land? or didn’t they go there? Woof?

      Kevin, you can help me lead the Israelites into the Promised Land. My person says it was some dude named Joshua that really did it though. I think I’ll go hang out with him for awhile and see what he’s up to. I just saw you over on Rumpy’s blog. It’s a good thing you get along with kitties. I’d get along with Scratchy better if he’d play with me sometimes – but he won’t.

      Hey Snoopy, I guess they got lots of water out of that rock. I’m just lazing around right now and waiting to take my person for a walk. It’s a good day.

    Great story. How much Glory of God did these ppl get to see yet they never trusted Him! Amazing! Ginger says to get your water dish filled whenever you want just to step on the edge and tip it over and then bark like crazy… works everytime! Ginger power!!!

      Ginger, I spilled a bunch of water from my dish the other day and my person slipped on it. I guess I’d better save that only for special occasions.
