Exodus 31 & 32: Will God blot You Out?
Verse of the Day: (32:33) And the LORD said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.
1. Bezaleel (31:1-18)
See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah: (31:2)
God calls and man obeys and God bless man. This was exactly what Bezaleel did when God called him and he obeyed Him and was filled with God’s spirit, wisdom and knowledge and did exactly what God commanded him in building God’s holy tabernacle.
2. Break (32:1-14)
And Aaron said unto them, Break off the golden earrings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them unto me. (32:2)
God has never called us to break anything but to build things for His glory. Aaron commanded the people of Israel to break their golden earrings to make a golden calf so that they could worship it as they were upset that Moses took too long to be with God at the mountain. When Moses returned to the people, he was shocked and saddened that Aaron had led the people to sin against God by making them worshipped the golden calf instead of the true God. God told Moses that He shall severely judge Aaron and the people. Moses then prayed and pleaded with God to spare them for their great sins. Though God did eventually judge and took three thousands lives, yet He spared the rest of them. Indeed, our God is a longsuffering God, and He desires that all should repent of their sins, and believe and receive Him as their personal Saviour and Lord. (2 Peter 3:9)
3. Blot (32:15-35)
Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin-; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written. (32:32)
Moses loved the people so much that he was willing to be blotted out of glorious heaven and to be condemned to fiery hell, but God refused to grant him his prayer, as God loved Moses very much. God explained to Moses that every man shall account for their sins, and there was no way that Moses could account for the sins of the people. God loves all and this is why all our names are written in His book of life. However, at a certain age, we begin to sin and this is when we are accountable for our sins, and we must confess and repent of sins, and believe and receive Jesus Christ as our personal Saviour and Lord. This is the reason why when babies die, they shall go to glorious heaven, and this was why King David said that he shall go to his child of seven days who died, but the child shall not return to him. Indeed, King David was a man of God and when he died, he was reunited with his child and above all, with his great and mighty God! (2 Samuel 12:23)
Prayer of the Day:
Dearest God, thank You that I am not blot out but my name is written in Your book.
