Scripture: Numbers 16:1-3
If we really believe Matthew 11:12, Jesus says we stand in a greater position than Moses. If we believe Jesus’ words, it is time to look at what Moses did, because we can aim to eclipse that. In Numbers 16:1-3 Moses had some major resistance. Verses 1-3 say, “Now Korah the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, with Dathan and Abiram the sons of Eliab, and On the son of Peleth, sons of Reuben, took men; and they rose up before Moses with some of the children of Israel, two hundred and fifty leaders of the congregation, representatives of the congregation, men of renown. They gathered together against Moses and Aaron, and said to them, ‘You take too much upon yourselves, for all the congregation is holy, every one of them, and the Lord is among them. Why then do you exalt yourselves above the assembly of the Lord?’” Not only do we have the resistance of Korah, Dathan and Abiram, but we have 250 of the top leaders of all the tribes arrayed against Moses. That is like having the whole nation move against you. These were not just regular leaders, but rather, Senators and Supreme Court justices. They had titles and were men of renown. They were very well-known. They gathered together against Moses and Aaron. How would we like to take on a whole nation? “You take too much upon yourselves, for all the congregation is holy, every one of them, and the Lord is among them. Why then do you exalt yourselves above the assembly of the Lord?” They accused Moses of self-will, self-promotion and personal ambition and aimed to dismiss him! If we indeed believe Matthew 11:12, we have to be willing to face what Moses faced. We are in a better position to call down judgment than he was! And what he did in this situation was quite remarkable! Do we really believe Matthew 11:12? We better, because it is our ticket to and through the end-times! All we need is available! Korah, Dathan and Abiram are alive and well and in some instances have leadership positions already. The wind of the Spirit is coming to position those prepared to lead. Let the wind blow!
