Today's Favorite Verse: Numbers 27:16, 18
"Let the Lord, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a man over the congregation,
And the Lord said unto Moses, Take thee Joshua the son of Nun, a man in whom is the spirit, and lay thine hand upon him.;"
Moses is allowed to see the promise land, but not to enter into it. This is because of what happened in the desert of Zin when he disobeyed God, and smote the rock instead of speaking to it to bring forth water. What I pondered on is how God will never allow a prophet to lead us astray. He will take a prophet first if they disobey him, and replace him with another. He will not leave his people without a prophet. Death comes to all and even a righteous prophet will someday die. I thought about the laying on of hands and how each of the apostles are called as a prophet, seers and revelator. The priesthood, and a prophet of God will remain upon the earth until Christ returns.
