Their position of weakness was based upon the emotional complex of sins and the arrogant complex of sins.

Blame the leaders, it’s always their fault, and that’s exactly what they did, though Moses has stood firmed!

True leadership is the authority, ability, and capacity to direct, to guide, to lead, to motivate, to control in any organization where legitimate authority exists.

Please notice in verse 2, they blamed Aaron and Moses, the leaders. In verse 3 they blame the Lord.

First, it starts with the rejection of spiritual authority on the part of a few and then it spreads to a total rejection of the Lord and Bible doctrine on the part of the whole congregation.

They thought the Lord had put them there to kill them.

For generations believers have been looking for excuses not to go forward with the plan of God.

They not only blame their leaders but they find excuses not to do the Lord’s will.

They had actually provided and environment of fear, hysteria, emotionalism, arrogance, bitterness and self pity.

Neurotic parents can actually drive their children away from all authority and even repression.

These children who have heard Moses maligned every day in their tents will be healed by doctrine and they will go into the promise land.

The next generation of Jews will not be affected by the hysteria of their parents and do you know why?

They believed what Moses said not what their parents said.

The tabernacle, the outside ten where TLJC as the Shekinah Glory will remain at Kadesh-barnea in the tent for 38 silent years.

Many of the adults will take their flocks and they are going to scatter and disperse throughout the desert.

Moses will stay there and teach that next generation of young people, in fact most of them were in their teens for when he began to teach for 38 years.

They will learn the doctrine that their parents refused either to listen to, to believe, or to apply.

Their children going to become plunder? No!

They are going to be as positive as their parents were negative.

Most of them saw those 10 great miracles in Egypt and the 10 great deliverance’s in the desert.

They will spend the next 38 years sharing in the suffering of their parents but also having positive volition toward doctrine.

Some of them will handle that suffering magnificently because Bible doctrine is going to make the difference.

The congregation of Israel; Cried and wept all night; blamed Moses and Aaron, and then finally they blamed the Lord.
It starts with the rejection of spiritual authority on the part of a few and then it spreads to a total rejection of the Lord and Bible doctrine on the part of the whole congregation.

For generations believers have been looking for excuses not to go forward with the plan of God.

For generations Christian have doubted in Mat 6:33.

They not only blame their leaders but they find excuses not to do the Lord’s will.

They had actually provided and environment of fear, hysteria, emotionalism, arrogance, bitterness and self pity.
Cain turned out to be a murderer and a loser in life. Abel turned out to be a winner and a visible hero.
Therefore, there’s no place for blaming the parents! And there’s no place for the parents blaming themselves. Cain was a product of his own decisions not his genes.

EZE 18:20 “The person who sins will die. The son will not bear the punishment for the father’s iniquity, nor will the father bear the punishment for the son’s iniquity;
the righteousness of the righteous will be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked will be upon himself.

However, these children who have heard Moses maligned every day in their tents will be healed by doctrine and they will go into the promise land.

Now God has promised them not only the land but the means of taking the land and God has made it clear, it has to be taken by warfare.

Prin – Without Bible doctrine no one, who is either slave or free, can get rid of the slave mentality which is “I want to go back to Egypt = back to the way things use to be

The slave mentality always has to do with security!

Freedom is far far greater than security but now they want to return to slavery.

Wanting security leads many individuals unto bondage and lack of freedom —- for example marrying someone for their money or security.

REV 2:5 ‘Remember therefore from where you have fallen, and repent and do the deeds you did at first; or else I am coming to you, and will remove your lampstand out of its place‑‑ unless you repent.

2PE 2:22 It has happened to them according to the true proverb, “A dog returns to its own vomit,” and, “A sow, after washing, returns to wallowing in the mire.”

If they understood eternal security they would understand their temporal security which is logistical based upon your God promising to provide.

It is always interesting, people think that they can solve their problems by electing a new leader.

They are already thinking of electing a leader and going to back to Egypt……..which represents the way things use to be.
Even in our own backyard we have to deal with the media that says to us every day, “let us go back to the ways things use to be.”

It’s time to get rid of their leader.

Prin – The plan of people who are irrational is always retreat and withdraw.

When you are in a jam or in some form of trial and testing, never forget Who is with you.

Mar 8:18 “Having eyes, do you not see? And having ears, do you not hear? And do you not remember?

LUK 24:8 And they remembered His words,

The will of the people was to get rid of Moses, elect another leader and go back to slavery.

The only Christian service that counts is where God is working on our behalf!

This shock indicates their total immobility of thinking and action under pressure.

They either lacked the doctrine or withdrew from the doctrine under pressure!

“He said that in the desert, God carried them!
