    Passing the Entrance Exam

Although some might get lost sympathizing with the generation that died in the desert, we must be eternally grateful that God rose up a new generation which brought God’s great promises to fulfillment. This is the second chance for His people established by pure grace.

The Lord again readies them as in the first section and also again tries their hearts. He brings them through smaller battles and testings to see if there is any sign of faith. Most of this time was spent in Moab next to the Jordan River (see Deuteronomy).

Numbers focuses on the preparations and the display of faith among the people unlike their parents' generation. We do not see a perfect people. God still hates and judges their sin. But we do see a God with perfect patience and wisdom equipping them for a task that would be scoffed at as impossible by the world. They were weak and frail, but considered ready. They passed the test.

A Readying of the Second Generation to Accomplish the Mission their Parents Refused to Fulfill.


The younger generation often criticizes
the older ones for lack of sincerity and boldness.
The accusation is too often true.
But what about the younger generation?
Will you be more faithful and true
to what the Lord has set before you?

This is your turn!
