Numbers 13: The Chapter Depicting Rebellion Against YAH and Its Consequences

Image result for rebellion and bitterness images

Deuteronomy 1:26-28 Names of God Bible (NOG)

26 But you rebelled against the command of Yahweh your Elohim and refused to go. 27 You complained in your tents and said, “Yahweh hates us! That’s why he brought us out of Egypt. He wanted to hand us over to the Amorites so that they could destroy us! 28 Where are we going anyway? Our own men have discouraged us by saying, ‘The people there are taller and stronger than we are. The cities are big with sky-high walls! We even saw the people of Anak there.’”


The Children of Israel thought that they were rebelling against Moshe Ha Navi (a.k.a Moses the Holy Prophet of YAH) but in actual sense, they rebelled against YAHUVEH GOD!

1 Samuel 15:23 King James Version (KJV)

23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

Rebelling against YAHUVEH GOD’S Appointed and Ordained Leadership is a very dangerous move in life as it can attract YAH’S judgement to one in a fierce manner! Beware! This does not mean that you should be fearful of or submit to those who have chosen to mix YAH with idolatry and other evil forms of worship as they are certainly no longer following YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH!

The English word, “REBELLION” in the Hebrew language is: “MERI.”

The word, “Meri” comes from the Hebrew root word, “Marah.”

To be Contentious or Rebellious in the Hebrew language is: “MARAH.”

To Rebel or Transgress in the Hebrew language is: “PASHA.”

Interestingly, the Hebrew word, “MARAH” also means “BITTERNESS.”

Note that “REBELLION” and “BITTERNESS” are related in one way or the other! If one persistently lives a rebellious life, they end up living a life of bitterness as a result!

This teaching also includes encouragement at the end for those who feel like their world has come to an end. If you are in a spiritual wilderness, please do not resort to:

  • complaining/grumbling,
  • drugs,
  • alcohol,
  • suicide,
  • credit cards,
  • wrong friendships or relationships, etc!

Please look up to YAH Almighty! HE will deliver you out of the wilderness eventually! HE cares!

There is a reason why you are there or have been there for so long!

You are not forgotten!

Isaiah 49:16 Tree of Life Version (TLV)

16 Behold, I have engraved you
on the palms of My hands.
Your walls are continually before Me.

Note that the Orthodox Jews have created a form of worship over time that involves saying BLESSINGS over everything around them.

The BLESSINGS always start with:

Hebrew Transiliteration:
English Translation:

The BERAKHOT/BLESSINGS are actually PRAISES and THANKSGIVING unto YAHUVEH, YAHUSHUA ans SHKINYINYAH GLORY for all they do for us as mankind.

The Orthodox Jews even say a BRACHA/BLESSING over the Rainbow whenever it appears in the sky.

It is important for us to emulate this as YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH did exactly the same when HE was on earth. Remember The LORD’S PRAYER and FEEDING OF THE 5,000, FEEDING OF THE 4,000 as well as the THE LAST SUPPER, etc? YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH said BERAKOT/BLESSINGS at each of these times!

Matthew 26:26 Tree of Life Version (TLV)

26 Now while they were eating, Yeshua took matzah;[a] and after He offered the bracha, He broke and gave to the disciples and said, “Take, eat; this is My body.”

Matthew 14:17-19 Tree of Life Version (TLV)

17 “We have nothing here except five loaves and two fish,” they said to Him.
18 “Bring them here to Me,” He said.
19 Ordering the crowd to recline on the grass, He took the five loaves and the two fish; and looking up to heaven, He offered the bracha. After breaking the loaves, He gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds.

Remember The PRIESTLY BLESSING (a.k.a AARONIC BLESSING) which YAHUVEH commanded the Levites to say to the People of Israel?

Numbers 6:22-27 Names of God Bible (NOG)

How Aaron and His Sons Will Bless the Israelites

22 Yahweh said to Moses, 23 “Tell Aaron and his sons, ‘This is how you will bless the Israelites. Say to them:

24 Yahweh will bless you and watch over you.
25 Yahweh will smile on you and be kind to you.
26 Yahweh will look on you with favor and give you peace.’

27 “So whenever they use my name to bless the Israelites, I will bless them.”

It is clear that YAHUVEH GOD actually created BRACHA/BERAKHAK!


In Judaism, a berakhah, bracha, brokho, brokhe (Hebrew: בְּרָכָה‎; pl. בְּרָכוֹת, berakhot, brokhoys; “benediction,” “blessing,” “drawing down [of spiritual energy]”) is a formula of blessing or thanksgiving, recited in public or private, usually before the performance of a commandment, or the enjoyment of food or fragrance, and in praise on various occasions.

The function of a berakhah is to acknowledge God as the source of all blessing.[1] Berakhot also have an educational function to transform a variety of everyday actions and occurrences into religious experiences designed to increase awareness of God at all times. For this purpose, the Talmudic sage, Rabbi Meir, stated that it was the duty of every Jew to recite one hundred berakhot every day (Men. 43b).[2]



  • I praise you AV/ABBA YAHUVEH, YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH and SHKINYINYAH GLORY for all your love, mercies and divine provisions daily. I especially thank you for the gift of life and good health in YAHUSHUA’S Name, AMEN!
  • AV/ABBA YAHUVEH and YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH, YOU are my rock and I put my trust in YOU, in YAHUSHUA’S Name, AMEN!
  • Oh AV/ABBA YAHUVEH, arise and deliver me from the wilderness I am currently in, in YAHUSHUA’S Name, AMEN!

Also, remember that in the SHAVU’OT, Holy Biblical story of Ruth and Naomi (recorded in the Book of Ruth), upon her return to the Land of Israel, she asked her family to called her “Mara” (can also be written as “Marar”) because her life had become bitter as result of the loss of her husband, Elimech and two sons, Mahlon and Chilion. See Ruth 1:20.

We also see the word “MARAR” in Exodus 15 where YAHUVEH GOD Makes Bitter Water Sweet through HIS Holy Prophet Moses.

Exodus 15:22-26 Tree of Life Version (TLV)

Bitter Waters Made Sweet

22 Then Moses led Israel onward from the Sea of Reeds. They went out into the wilderness of Shur. But they travelled three days in the wilderness and found no water. 23 When they came to Marah, they could not drink from the waters because they were bitter. On account of this it was called Marah. 24 So the people complained to Moses saying, “What are we going to drink?”
25 So he cried out to Adonai, and Adonai showed him a tree. When he threw it into the waters, they were made sweet.
There He made a statute and an ordinance for them, and there He tested them. 26 He said, “If you diligently listen to the voice of Adonai your God, do what is right in His eyes, pay attention to His mitzvot, and keep all His decrees, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians. For I am Adonai who heals you.”

The word “bitter” in English or “marar/mara” in Hebrew is also seen in the Book of Revelation during the mention of the YAHUVEH’S bowls of anger poured out upon the earth targeted at the rebellious people, not the Bride and/or guests of YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH!

Revelation 8:10-11 Names of God Bible (NOG)

10 When the third angel blew his trumpet, a huge star flaming like a torch fell from the sky. It fell on one-third of the rivers and on the springs. 11 That star was named Wormwood. One-third of the water turned into wormwood, and many people died from this water because it had turned bitter.

The English word, “wormwood” is used in Revelation 8. The following is its meaning:

  • a woody shrub with a bitter aromatic taste, used as an ingredient of vermouth and absinthe and in medicine.
  • a state or source of bitterness or grief.

As I study this, I remember the movie, “MATILDA.”

Matilda was a child born into a family called “WORMWOOD” and truly the family led a bitter life.

Related image

The reason was that the parents did not have very good careers and they did not care much about their children especially Matilda. In fact, they often forgot her in the car. The father in the family was a thief and almost got caught, if it was not for Matilda protecting him using her “magic powers.”

The point here is the movie was centred around living a BITTER LIFE until SWEETNESS came to the family at some point in their lives at the end of the movie, hence their family name, “WORMWOOD.”

Definition of “bitterness:”

  • Bitterness is lack of sweetness.

  • Additionally, it is described as anger and disappointment with the view that one has been treated unfairly.

  • Bitterness is also resentment.

What does it mean to be rebellious or contentious?

  • Well, to be contentious is to cause or likely to cause an argument; controversial. It also involves heated argument.

  • To be rebellious is to show a desire to resist authority, control, or convention.

Moshe (a.k.a Moses) sent 12 men, one from each tribe to explore the Promised Land before the people entered it. The 12 men spent 40 days doing so. This included the journey to and from as well as the time taken to explore and collect the good of the land. The 12 men returned with a cluster of grapes so big, that it took 2 people each to carry it.
On their return, 10 of the men gave a bad report which said, “It is a land of milk and honey – but giants live there, and strong warriors in walled cities. We can’t go there.” Only Calev (a.k.a Caleb) and Yahushua (a.k.a Joshua) the son of Nun said, “The land is beautiful and fertile. We can conquer it because YAH is with us.”

But the people were afraid and said, “If only we hand died in Egypt, or in this desert! Let’s go back to Egypt.” YAH became very angry. “I will do as you have said, “YAH told them. “You will die in this desert. You will wander 40 years, and your children will have the land when all of you are gone.” The generation that came out of Egypt would not see the land.

Immigration is challenging for everyone but when it is YAH Almighty who has commanded you to migrate, then you have to exercise a lot of patience and understanding. You have to keep being hopeful, particularly in this day and age. It is important to hear from YAH on a constant basis for updates on where to go, what to do and how to do it.

Much as they had waited for so long to be delivered from bondage/slavery to the Egyptians, the generation of the Children of Israel who had left Egypt had a very hard time with transition into a whole new way of life and environment.

YAHUVEH GOD Almighty released a Holy Prophecy through Apostle/Prophet Elisheva Eliyahu of Amightywind Ministry with a message that in these end time, we are to ask YAH to direct our footsteps, for example, if YAH has commanded you to leave the U.S.A, Canada, etc or wherever you are in the world and relocate to another part of the world where HE will take care of you very well, then you should! You should not hesitate as time may not be on your side both spiritually and physically!!!

This TORAH Portion will be explored further and a teaching on it uploaded in due course.

Click here to read the Prophecy on, “WHERE IS YOUR NOAH’S ARK IN THESE END TIMES?”

The journey from Egypt to Israel (the Promised Land) was set out to be 11 days at first but YAHUVEH GOD did not allow the Children of Israel to go through the easy route which did not involve crossing the Sea of Reeds (a.k.a Red Sea). YAHUVEH knew that if HE had led the Israelites through the land of the Philistines, they would most likely turn back to Egypt because of being afraid of war.

Exodus 13:17-22 New King James Version (NKJV)

The Wilderness Way

17 Then it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that God did not lead them by way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God said, “Lest perhaps the people change their minds when they see war, and return to Egypt.” 18 So God led the people around by way of the wilderness of the Red Sea. And the children of Israel went up in orderly ranks out of the land of Egypt.
19 And Moses took the bones of Joseph with him, for he had placed the children of Israel under solemn oath, saying, “God will surely [a]visit you, and you shall carry up my bones from here with you.”
20 So they took their journey from Succoth and camped in Etham at the edge of the wilderness. 21 And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so as to go by day and night. 22 He did not take away the pillar of cloud by day or the pillar of fire by night from before the people.

Then 11 days became 40 days and according to Numbers 13-14 and Deuteronomy 1, 40 days turned into 40 years.

The Children of Israel grumbled or complained so much during their time of immigration from Egypt to Israel (The Promised Land). Constant grumbling caused their hearts to become hardened over time. They most likely did not know this. What they struggled to cope with in the wilderness was a much deal than the one they had while in Egypt, however, they failed to see that.

Only once, I think is it mentioned that the Biblical Children of Israel spent time praising and worshipping YAH Almighty for HIS goodness to the and that was after the crossing of the Sea of Reeds.

Remember the “Song of Moses and Miryam/Miriam” (Exodus 15). Moses sang another song as recorded in Deuteronomy 32.

This implies that they spent most of their time in the wilderness grumbling or complaining. YAHUVEH GOD was so very angry for them during the past times they had complained but what happened at Kadesh-Banear as recorded in Numbers 13 was the worst of them all to YAHUVEH and to teach them a lesson, HE acted in a way they would never have thought HE would. All those who were under the leadership of the 10 spies were not allowed to enter the Promised Land except they were too young to understand the difference between good and evil at the time.

The children of Israel complained as follows:

  • Exodus 15: Bitter Water Made Sweet At Elim

Soon after crossing the Sea of Reeds (a.k.a Red Sea) concerning the bitter waters at Elim – YAHUVEH GOD made the waters sweet.

  • Exodus 16: Manna and Quail from Heaven

Then when they had no food to eat, they complained. They added that YAHUVEH had brought them from Egypt and into the wilderness to kill them there. Moses cried out to YAHUVEH who provided them with Manna daily except on the Sabbath/Seventh Day of the week.

  • Exodus 16: Manna and Quail from Heaven

As they went on, the Children of Israel got fed up of the daily manna and complained about not eating meat. In fact at this point in time, they compared where they were with Egypt and wished they could return there instead. YAHUVEH gave them quail to eat and watched their behaviour. Those who over-ate/ate without believing that YAHUVEH could provide again ended up dead with food in their mouths. As a result, that place was named in memory of that.

  • Exodus 17: Water from the Rock

When the Children of Israel arrived at Rephidim, they complained to Moses about drinking water because there was none available for them to drink! Moses cried out to the LORD YAHUVEH and HE answered. YAHUVEH GOD provided water from the Rock. Sadly, in the process, the Children of Israel got Moses in trouble with YAHUVEH and as a result, HE was not allowed to enter the Promised Land.

Exodus 17:1-4 Names of God Bible (NOG)

The Lord Provides Water for the Israelites from a Rock

17 The whole community of Israelites left the desert of Sin and traveled from place to place as Yahweh commanded them. They camped at Rephidim, but there was no water for the people to drink. 2 So they complained to Moses by saying, “Give us water to drink!”

Moses said to them, “Why are you complaining to me? Why are you testing Yahweh?”
3 But the people were thirsty for water there. They complained to Moses and asked, “Why did you bring us out of Egypt? Was it to make us, our children, and our livestock die of thirst?”
4 So Moses cried out to Yahweh, “What should I do with these people? They’re almost ready to stone me!”
5 Yahweh answered Moses, “Bring some of the leaders of Israel with you, and go to where the people can see you. Take the staff you used to strike the Nile River. 6 I’ll be standing in front of you there by a rock at Mount Horeb. Strike the rock, and water will come out of it for the people to drink.”
Moses did this while the leaders of Israel watched him.
7 He named that place Massah [Testing] and Meribah [Complaining] because the Israelites complained and because they tested Yahweh, asking, “Is Yahweh with us or not?”

  • Exodus 32: The Golden Calf

The Children of Israel complained about Moses taking long to return from the Mountain where YAHUVEH GOD had called him to receive the tablets of stone onto which HE had inscribed The Ten Commandments. The result of the Israelites lack of patience and understanding was making an idol for themselves that to them represented GOD. The sad thing was that the making of the calf was led by Moses’ very own brother, Aharon (a.k.a Aaron). Aaron was and was supposed to be Moses’ right-hand man, that is to say, take over when Moses is not around!

Aaron really wronged YAH here. YAHUVEH nearly killed all the Children of Israel at that point. Moses really pleaded with YAH concerning the matter and in the process, YAH was finding it hard to let HIS anger subside/have mercy on the Children of Israel. Moses was a very humble man who recollected YAH’S goodness to him and the rest of Israel. This is a special and vital quality to have as a spiritual leader appointed by YAH!

As per Exodus 33, YAHUVEH had mercy upon the Israelites.

Exodus 32:1-10 Names of God Bible (NOG)

The Gold Calf

32 When the people saw that Moses delayed coming down from the mountain, they gathered around Aaron. They said to him, “We don’t know what has happened to this Moses, who led us out of Egypt. Make gods who will lead us.”

2 Aaron said to them, “Have your wives, sons, and daughters take off the gold earrings they are wearing, and bring them to me.”
3 So all the people took off their gold earrings and handed them to Aaron. 4 After he had worked on the gold with a tool,[a] he made it into a statue of a calf.
Then they said, “Israel, here are your gods who brought you out of Egypt.”
5 When Aaron saw this, he built an altar in front of it and announced, “Tomorrow there will be a festival in Yahweh’s honor.”
6 Early the next day the people sacrificed burnt offerings and brought fellowship offerings. Afterward, they sat down to a feast, which turned into an orgy.
7 Yahweh said to Moses, “Go back down there. Your people whom you brought out of Egypt have ruined everything. 8 They’ve already turned from the way I commanded them to live. They’ve made a statue of a calf for themselves. They’ve bowed down to it and offered sacrifices to it. They’ve said, ‘Israel, here are your gods who brought you out of Egypt.’”
9 Yahweh added, “I’ve seen these people, and they are impossible to deal with. 10 Now leave me alone. I’m so angry with them I am going to destroy them. Then I’ll make you into a great nation.”

  • Numbers 11: The Children of Israel Complain

They complain about food again.

Numbers 11:1-6 Names of God Bible (NOG)

The People of Israel Demand Meat to Eat

11 The people began complaining out loud to Yahweh about their troubles. When Yahweh heard them, he became angry, and fire from Yahweh began to burn among them. It destroyed some people on the outskirts of the camp. 2 The people cried out to Moses, Moses prayed to Yahweh, and the fire died down. 3 That place was called Taberah [Fire] because fire from Yahweh burned among them there.

4 Some foreigners among the Israelites had a strong craving for other kinds of food. Even the Israelites started crying again and said, “If only we had meat to eat! 5 Remember all the free fish we ate in Egypt and the cucumbers, watermelons, leeks, onions, and garlic we had? 6 But now we’ve lost our appetite! Everywhere we look there’s nothing but manna!”

  • Numbers 12: Miryam/Miriam and Aharon/Aaron Oppose Moshe/Moses

This same Miryam was actually used by YAHUVEH GOD to prophesy that YAHUVEH was soon sending the Israelites’ helper of destiny, her brother, Moses. She knew better than to speak against Moses.

  • Numbers 16: Korach/Korah’s Rebellion/Korach/Korah Works Against Moshe/Moses

Some Children of Israel complained about and even challenged Moses. These included Miryam/Miriam as well as Korah, Dathan and Abiram and their families. There were consequences were grievous. Miryam’s was not too bad. All she got was the skin infection called Tzaraat (now translated to Leprosy). She had to be excluded from the Community/Camp for seven days. On the other hand, Korah, Dathan and Abiram and their families lost their chances of entering both the Promised Land and the Shammayim/Heavens! They were sent to hell the lake of fire when the ground opened up and swallowed them with fire coming from the ground.

  • Numbers 13: Moshe/Moses Send Out Twelve Spies

  • Numbers 14: The People Rebel Against The LORD YAHUVEH

This was so very bad that the People of Israel nearly stoned Moses.

Numbers 13:30-33 Names of God Bible (NOG)

30 Caleb told the people to be quiet and listen to Moses. Caleb said, “Let’s go now and take possession of the land. We should be more than able to conquer it.”
31 But the men who had gone with him said, “We can’t attack those people! They’re too strong for us!” 32 So they began to spread lies among the Israelites about the land they had explored. They said, “The land we explored is one that devours those who live there. All the people we saw there are very tall. 33 We saw Nephilim there. (The descendants of Anak are Nephilim.) We felt as small as grasshoppers, and that’s how we must have looked to them.”

The story continues in Numbers 14 and 15.

Numbers 14:1-12 Names of God Bible (NOG)

The People Rebel against the Lord

14 Then all the people in the Israelite community raised their voices and cried out loud all that night. 2 They complained to Moses and Aaron, “If only we had died in Egypt or this desert! 3 Why is the Lord bringing us to this land—just to have us die in battle? Our wives and children will be taken as prisoners of war! Wouldn’t it be better for us to go back to Egypt?” 4 They said to each other, “Let’s choose a leader and go back to Egypt.”

5 Immediately, Moses and Aaron bowed with their faces touching the ground in front of the whole community of Israel assembled there. 6 At the same time, two of those who had explored the land, Joshua (son of Nun) and Caleb (son of Jephunneh), tore their clothes in despair. 7 They said to the whole community of Israel, “The land we explored is very good. 8 If Yahweh is pleased with us, he will bring us into this land and give it to us. This is a land flowing with milk and honey! 9 Don’t rebel against Yahweh, and don’t be afraid of the people of the land. We will devour them like bread. They have no protection, and Yahweh is with us. So don’t be afraid of them.”
10 But when the whole community of Israel talked about stoning Moses and Aaron to death, they all saw the glory of Yahweh shining at the tent of meeting. 11 Yahweh said to Moses, “How long will these people treat me with contempt? How long will they refuse to trust me in spite of all the miraculous signs I have done among them? 12 I’ll strike them with a plague, I’ll destroy them,[a] and I’ll make you into a nation larger and stronger than they are.”

In the midst of this, Moses still cried out to YAHUVEH for mercy upon HIS people. YAHUVEH forgave them but HE still disciplined them so they could learn to stop grumbling against Moses, HIS Holy Servant and YAH, HIMSELF! See Numbers 14:20-24.

Image result for rebellion and bitterness images


  • YAHUVEH GOD did as they asked. He let them die in the wilderness, after all, they had been proclaiming it from Elim (where the bitter waters were made sweet).
  • YAHUVEH let their bodies rot in the desert!
  • YAHUVEH let them wander in the wilderness for 40 years altogether instead of just 40 days!
  • The Amalekites dealt seriously with those who had tried to go up the mountain of Seir to start a war that YAHUVEH had not commanded them to start!

The Numbers 13 event created a great lesson to learn!

Rebellion and bitterness are very much linked together!

I also think that if one holds bitterness in their heart over time, it is a form of rebellion against YAHUVEH GOD. Additionally, it turns to rebellion.

From the Hebrew root word, “Marah/Mara,” you get the Hebrew root word, “Meri.”

Marah/Mara comes Meri and viceversa.


The Book of Revelation shows that YAHUVEH GOD made sweet waters bitter as part of HIS Judgement of the earth for rebellion against HIM!

So, who was to blame for all the complaining?

Well, generally, the Children of Israel were responsible for grumbling against YAHUVEH GOD and HIS Servant, Moses.

In Numbers 13, the Ten Spies were responsible for creating contentiousness in the Community of Israel. If only they had kept their mouths shut whether or not they accepted Caleb’s and Yahushua’s words of encouragement. Their bad and fearful report cause so much havoc in the camp. Fear was built in them and none of them stood up against what they heard that was not good. They all agreed then started making detrimental statements. It was those very statements which YAHUVEH acted upon when disciplining them.

Moses tried to stop them. He did all he could to encourage them, however, they were not ready to listen or pay attention to YAHUVEH’S servant hence they punished was so great!

So, are you like the Children of Israel?

Do you feel like you are travelling through a wilderness and have been there for so long that you can not take it any more?

Well, avoid complaining or grumbling to YAHUVEH GOD as much as possible because it will take you no where! Satan knows how to capitalise on the words that come out of your heart and mouth!

Rather focus on YAHUVEH’S goodness and mercy! YAHUVEH brought Job out of the wilderness! It took some time but HE did not abandon Job totally. Job was restored fully and beyond at the end of his time in the wilderness!

In the same way, your wilderness time is not permanent!!! It has an expiry date!!!

Seek encouragement in YAHUVEH GOD’S WORD just like Melech or Melek/King Dawid/David did during his hard times!

1 Samuel 30:6 King James Version (KJV)

6 And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the Lord his God.

Compare versions:

1 Samuel 30:6 Names of God Bible (NOG)

6 David was in great distress because the people in their bitterness said he should be stoned. (They were thinking of their sons and daughters. But David found strength in Yahweh his Elohim.)

Praise and Worship the LORD YAHUVEH more and more in Spirit and in Truth!!!

John 4:21-24 Names of God Bible (NOG)

21 Yeshua told her, “Believe me. A time is coming when you Samaritans won’t be worshiping the Father on this mountain or in Jerusalem. 22 You don’t know what you’re worshiping. We Jews know what we’re worshiping, because salvation comes from the Jews. 23 Indeed, the time is coming, and it is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth. The Father is looking for people like that to worship him. 24 God is a spirit. Those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”

Any time a thought comes to complain, remember that YAHUVEH GOD has the whole world in HIS Hands plus HE is in control!

You may feel stupid praising HIM but just keep doing so no matter what!!!

(I am going to write more on this and upload it on a separate page soon.)

Seek YAHUVEH GOD’S face concerning the matter. Perhaps, there is a particular reason as to why you are still in the wilderness spiritually and physically.

  • It could be that YAH wants you there to learn something and until you learn, you will not move forward


  • it could that, as per YAH’S Pillar or Cloud by Day and Pillar of Fire by night, you are to stay put and the pillar moves just like in the time of Moses and the People of Israel!

Be slow to speak and quick to listen!

Test what you hear if you are not sure! Ask YAH to give you further confirmation of HIS personal WORD to you!


Seek a GODLY Fellowship and join it. Ensure you pray and study the WORD OF YAH fervently as part of a group as well as individually. Pray before you join one to ensure that is where you belong spiritually!

Deuteronomy 1 Names of God Bible (NOG)

Moses Speaks to the People 40 Years after Leaving Egypt

1 This is the speech Moses gave in the desert east of the Jordan River, on the plains, near Suph, between Paran and Tophel, and near Laban, Hazeroth, and Di Zahab. He spoke to all the Israelites. 2 (It takes 11 days to go from Mount Horeb to Kadesh Barnea by way of Mount Seir.)

3 On the first day of the eleventh month in the fortieth year after they had left Egypt, Moses told the Israelites everything Yahweh had commanded him to tell them. 4 This was after he had defeated King Sihon of the Amorites, who ruled in Heshbon, and King Og of Bashan, who ruled in Ashtaroth and[a] in Edrei. 5 The Israelites were east of the Jordan River in Moab when Moses began to review God’s teachings.

Moses Reminds Israel of the Events at Mount Horeb

This is what he said:
6 At Mount Horeb Yahweh our Elohim said to us, “You have stayed at this mountain long enough. 7 Break camp, and get ready! Go to the mountain region of the Amorites, and go to everyone living on the plains, in the mountains, in the foothills, in the Negev, on the whole Mediterranean coast (the land of the Canaanites), and into Lebanon as far as the Euphrates River. 8 I’m giving you this land. Enter, and take possession of the land Yahweh swore to give to your ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and to you, their descendants.”
9 At that time I said to you, “I’m not able to take care of you by myself. 10 Yahweh your Elohim has made your population increase so that you are now as numerous as the stars in the sky. 11 May Yahweh Elohim of your ancestors make you a thousand times more numerous, and may he bless you as he has promised. 12 How can I take care of your problems, your troubles, and your disagreements all by myself? 13 From each of your tribes, choose some men who are wise, intelligent, and experienced, and I’ll appoint them to be your leaders.”
14 You agreed that this was a good idea.
15 So I took the heads of your tribes who were wise and experienced men and made them officers for each of your tribes. I put them in charge of groups of 1,000, or 100, or 50, or 10 people. 16 Also at that time I gave these instructions to your judges: “Hear the cases that your people bring. Judge each case fairly, no matter whether it is a dispute between two Israelites or a dispute between an Israelite and a non-Israelite. 17 Be impartial in your decisions. Listen to the least important people the same way you listen to the most important people. Never be afraid of anyone, since your decisions come from Elohim. You may bring me any case that’s too hard for you, and I will hear it.” 18 So I told you how to handle these situations.

Moses Reminds Israel of the Events at Kadesh Barnea

19 So we left Mount Horeb, as Yahweh our Elohim had commanded. We traveled through all that vast and dangerous desert you saw on the way to the mountain region of the Amorites. At last we came to Kadesh Barnea. 20 Then I said to you, “We have come to the mountain region of the Amorites, which Yahweh our Elohim is giving us. 21 Yahweh your Elohim is giving you this land. Go ahead! Take possession of it, as Yahweh Elohim of your ancestors told you. Don’t be afraid or terrified.”

22 All of you came to me and said, “Let’s send men ahead of us to gather information about the land for us. Have them report to us about the route we should take and the cities we’ll come to.”
23 It seemed like a good idea to me. So I chose 12 of your men, one from each tribe. 24 They left and went into the mountains. When they came to the Eshcol Valley, they explored it. 25 They took some of the region’s fruit with them and brought it back to us. They reported, “The land that Yahweh our Elohim is giving us is good.”
26 But you rebelled against the command of Yahweh your Elohim and refused to go. 27 You complained in your tents and said, “Yahweh hates us! That’s why he brought us out of Egypt. He wanted to hand us over to the Amorites so that they could destroy us! 28 Where are we going anyway? Our own men have discouraged us by saying, ‘The people there are taller and stronger than we are. The cities are big with sky-high walls! We even saw the people of Anak there.’”
29 Then I said to you, “Don’t tremble. Don’t be afraid of them. 30 Yahweh your Elohim, who is going ahead of you, will fight for you as you saw him fight for you in Egypt 31 and in the desert.” There you saw how Yahweh your Elohim carried you, as parents carry their children. He carried you wherever you went until you came to this place.
32 In spite of this, you didn’t trust Yahweh your Elohim, 33 who went ahead of you to find places for you to camp. He appeared in a column of fire at night and in a column of smoke during the day to show you which route to take.
34 When Yahweh heard what you said, he was angry and took this oath: 35 “Not one of these evil people will ever see the good land that I swore to give to your ancestors, 36 except Caleb, son of Jephunneh. He will see it, and I will give the land that he set his feet on to him and his descendants, because he wholeheartedly followed Yahweh.”
37 Yahweh became angry with me because of you. He said, “You won’t go there either. 38 But your assistant Joshua, son of Nun, will go there. Encourage him, because he will help Israel take possession of the land. 39 Although you thought the little children would be captured in war, your children, who are still too young to know the difference between good and evil, will enter that land. I will give it to them, and they will take possession of it. 40 Turn around, go back into the desert, and follow the road that goes to the Red Sea.”
41 You responded, “We have sinned against Yahweh. We’ll go and fight, as Yahweh our Elohim commanded us to do.” Each of you armed yourself for war, thinking you could easily invade the mountain region.
42 But Yahweh said to me, “Tell them, ‘Don’t go and fight, because I won’t be with you. You will be defeated by your enemies.’”
43 I told you, but you wouldn’t listen. You defied Yahweh’s command and invaded the mountain region. 44 The Amorites who lived there came out and attacked you and chased you like a swarm of bees. They defeated you, chasing you from Seir all the way to Hormah. 45 When you came back, you cried to Yahweh, but Yahweh didn’t listen to you or hear you. 46 That’s why you stayed in Kadesh as long as you did.
