Now the angel of the LORD came up from Gilgal to Bochim. And he said, “I brought you up out of Egypt and led you into the land which I have sworn to your fathers; and I said, ‘I will never break My covenant with you, and as for you, you shall make no covenant with the inhabitants of this land; you shall tear down their altars.’ But you have not obeyed Me; what is this you have done? “Therefore I also said, ‘I will not drive them out before you; but they will become as thorns in your sides and their gods will be a snare to you.’”
El ángel del SEÑOR subió de Gilgal a Boquim y dijo a los Israelitas: “Yo los saqué a ustedes de Egipto y los conduje a la tierra que había prometido a sus padres y les dije: ‘Jamás quebrantaré Mi pacto con ustedes, y en cuanto a ustedes, no harán pacto con los habitantes de esta tierra; sus altares derribarán.’ Pero no Me han obedecido. ¿Qué es esto que han hecho? “Por lo cual también dije: ‘No los echaré de delante de ustedes, sino que serán como espinas en su costado, y sus dioses les serán lazo para ustedes.'”
We often wonder why God allows murders, terrorist activities, and wars. look at this passage; if we as humans would listen and follow the path God tells us to take, all will be well. The Israelites did not follow all that God told them and this is why the world is the way it is. It isn’t all their fault. We all have not listened to God at times and generations to come will pay for our non-adherence. God gave us freewill and in some ways it has made things difficult; not because God gave it to us, but because we use our freewill for greed and our own pride. We all must not blame God…we need to look in the mirror and blame the one who really is at fault. It is my fault Father, and I ask you to step in and fix the screw ups I have made. Praise You God!
Because they met you not with bread and with water in the way, when you came forth out of Egypt; and because they hired against you Balaam the son of Beor of Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse you. Nevertheless the LORD your God would not hearken unto Balaam; but the LORD your God turned the curse into a blessing unto you, because the LORD your God loved you.
porque no fueron a vuestro encuentro con pan y agua en el camino cuando salisteis de Egipto, y porque alquilaron contra ti a Balaam, hijo de Beor, de Petor en Mesopotamia, para maldecirte. Mas el SEÑOR tu Dios no quiso escuchar a Balaam, sino que el SEÑOR tu Dios te cambió la maldición en bendición, porque el SEÑOR tu Dios te ama.
No matter what others try to do against us, if we are walking in God’s will, He will turn cursing into blessing. He loves us. He wants the very best for us. We must allow Him to be our guide and everything will turn out perfect.
And when forty years were expired, there appeared to him in the wilderness of mount Sinai an angel of the Lord in a flame of fire in a bush. When Moses saw it, he wondered at the sight: and as he drew near to behold it, the voice of the Lord came unto him, Saying, I am the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Then Moses trembled, and dared not behold. Then said the Lord to him, Put off your shoes from your feet: for the place where you stand is holy ground. I have seen, I have seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt, and I have heard their groaning, and am come down to deliver them. And now come, I will send you into Egypt. This Moses whom they refused, saying, Who made you a ruler and a judge? the same did God send to be a ruler and a deliverer by the hand of the angel who appeared to him in the bush.
Y pasados cuarenta años, SE LE APARECIO UN ANGEL EN EL DESIERTO DEL MONTE Sinaí, EN LA LLAMA DE UNA ZARZA QUE ARDIA. Al ver esto, Moisés se maravillaba de la visión, y al acercarse para ver mejor, vino a él la voz del Señor: “YO SOY EL DIOS DE TUS PADRES, EL DIOS DE ABRAHAM, DE ISAAC, Y DE JACOB. Moisés temblando, no se atrevía a mirar. PERO EL SEÑOR LE DIJO: “QUITATE LAS SANDALIAS DE LOS PIES, PORQUE EL LUGAR DONDE ESTAS ES TIERRA SANTA. “CIERTAMENTE HE VISTO LA OPRESION DE MI PUEBLO EN EGIPTO Y HE OIDO SUS GEMIDOS, Y HE DESCENDIDO PARA LIBRARLOS; VEN AHORA Y TE ENVIARE A EGIPTO. Este Moisés, a quien ellos rechazaron, diciendo: “¿QUIEN TE HA PUESTO POR GOBERNANTE Y JUEZ? es el mismo que Dios envió para ser gobernante y libertador con la ayuda del ángel que se le apareció en la zarza.
God will use and choose some of the most unlikely people or objects to use. It shows us we are not as smart as we sometimes think we are. God sees our affliction and also hears our groanings. let Him use whom He will to lead us all to the Promised Land. Praise be to Jesus.
