Exodus 32 Observations
Exodus 32 :20 This reminds me of the ordinance given by YAH concerning adultery of a woman against her husband (Num. 5:15-22). She was to drink a substance and if she had committed adultery, a curse was pronounced on her. Her thigh would rot, and her belly would swell.
The Children of Israel had entered covenant with YAHUAH. They were married to Him and Him alone. They broke their covenant, their marriage vows, with YAH fooling around with the golden calf. They were an adulterous woman. This is just speculation, but I believe that Moses made them all drink the ground-up golden calf as the woman described in Numbers 5. Probably all those who had participated in Israel’s folly died of the plague.
Acts 14 Observations
Acts 14 :19-20 Paul was operating in his calling of an apostle. YAH gave him the anointing to withstand the stoning. Steven, on the other hand, was not commissioned nor anointed to take on the high-level wicked entities of the synagogues in Jerusalem. He, therefore, succumbed to the stoning.
Please, please comment below if you see ANYTHING that is contrary to Scripture that I have presented in these Scripture Observations. I want Truth and when I see that I have made a mistake, I want to correct that. No chips on my shoulders here.
I also ask one thing, though. Please, please present your thoughts in the context of two or three Scripture references, not just one (see Deuteronomy 17:6; Matthew 18:16; 2 Corinthians 13:1). One verse (especially one verse out of context) will not be received as evidence. I am just not one to interpret Scripture or accept other’s interpretation of Scripture apart from the written Word of YAH found in the whole counsel of His written Word.
I try my best to limit the use of the precursor words of “I think” or “I believe” without Scripture to back up my “I thinks” and “I believes.” Not only on this site, but be on the lookout anywhere else for excessive “I think” and “I believe” statements presented as Truth, with no Scriptural evidence to back up the statements.
The written Word of YAHUAH is the standard, the vanguard against deception which as you know is quite rampant these days.
