TOPIC: WHAT IS THE PROOF OF THE PROMISE?
Memory verse:-"Then Moses said to them, "No one is to keep any of it until morning.” However, some
of them paid no attention to Moses; they kept part of it until morning, but it was full of
maggots and began to smell. So Moses was angry with them. Each morning everyone
gathered as much as he needed, and when the sun grew hot, it melted away. On the
sixth day, they gathered twice as much—two omers for each person—and the leaders
of the community came and reported this to Moses. He said to them, "This is what the
Lord commanded: ‘Tomorrow is to be a day of rest, a holy Sabbath to the Lord.
So bake what you want to bake and boil what you want to boil. Save whatever is left
and keep it until morning.’”
So they saved it until morning, as Moses commanded, and it did not stink or get
maggots in it. "Eat it today,” Moses said, "because today is a Sabbath to the Lord.
You will not find any of it on the ground today. Six days you are to gather it, but on the
seventh day, the Sabbath, there will not be any.” Nevertheless, some of the people went
out on the seventh day to gather it, but they found none. Then the Lord said to
Moses, "How long will you refuse to keep my commands and my instructions? Bear in
mind that the Lord has given you the Sabbath; that is why on the sixth day he gives
you bread for two days. Everyone is to stay where he is on the seventh day; no one is
to go out.” So the people rested on the seventh day.
The people of Israel called the bread manna. It was white like coriander seed and
tasted like wafers made with honey. Moses said, "This is what the Lord has
commanded: "Take an omer of manna and keep it for the generations to come, so they
can see the bread I gave you to eat in the desert when I brought you out of Egypt.’”
So Moses said to Aaron, "Take a jar and put an omer of manna in it. Then place it
before the Lord to be kept for the generations to come.” As the Lord commanded
Moses, Aaron put the manna in front of the Testimony, that it might be kept.
The Israelites ate manna forty years, until they came to a land that was settled; they ate
manna until they reached the border of Canaan. (An omer is one tenth of an ephah.)”
God commanded the Israelites to keep and exhibit the bread for the coming generation. In the same way there should be a proof for the Bread (Jesus) that we have today and that is character. A character that speaks of the existence, deity and the salvation of Jesus Christ, with these there can never be a character that should serve as a legacy for generations.
Prayer:-pray for keeping and exhibiting the character of Christ
