KORAH IN THE BIBLE STUDY
MOSES AND KORAH BIBLE DETAILS
Are you ready for another great
Daily Bread story to study?
This is one of those stories that you can picture very clearly in your
mind. We're still out in the wilderness with Moses and the children of
Israel but things haven't settled down as quietly as you may have expected
after God's wrath the last time His people murmured.
There was a man named Korah, who
was Levi's great-grandson, and Dathan and Abiram were Reuben's
great-grandsons, and On was also from the tribe of Reuben. And Korah led
these four men and they gathered 250 of the princes of Israel who were all well known and respected in the congregation.
They felt that other people should be able to serve as priests in addition to who
God appointed. They all confronted Moses and Aaron and said, Ye take too
much upon you.Korah said, The whole congregation is holy and the Lord is
among them, so why do you act like you're better than the rest? (He thought
Moses had a "holier than thou" attitude, and probably meant, you think
you're so special.)
Moses fell on his face. He heard
these kind of accusations before and nothing good came of it. As a matter
of fact, the Lord had gotten angry for much less. Moses said to Korah and
his comrades, Tomorrow, the Lord will show who belongs to Him and who is
holy, and all those who have chosen Him, He'll bring them close to Him.
KORAH IN THE BIBLE LESSON
MOSES AND KORAH BIBLE WARNING
Moses knew that the Lord wasn't
gonna just ignore this so he suggested that they make an offering to the
Lord. He told Korah and the 250 men to take their censers (incense burners)
and light incense in them before the Lord tomorrow and the man that the Lord
chooses, will be holy. Then Moses repeated Korah's words back to him, Ye
take too much upon you, ye sons of Levi.
Moses said, Listen, I beg you,
sons of Levi, does it mean nothing to you that the God of Israel has
separated you from the rest of Israel to bring you near to Him to do the
service of the tabernacle and to minister to His congregation? So why do
you and these men get together against the Lord and what has Aaron done that
you complain about him?
Dathan and Abiram refused to come
up and burn the incense, and they said to Moses, Does it mean nothing to you
that you brought us up out of a rich land to kill us in the wilderness only
so you can make yourself a ruler over us? Not only that, but you haven't
brought us into a land flowing with milk and honey, or given us fields and
vineyards either. What are you going to do to these men tomorrow, put out
their eyes? We will not come up.
Moses was very angry and said to
the Lord, Don't accept their offering. I haven't taken one thing from them
and I haven't hurt a single one of them. Moses told Korah, You and all your
company and Aaron, come before the Lord tomorrow, and have each and every
man bring his censer, put fire in them and lay incense on them, you also,
KORAH IN THE BIBLE DANGER
MOSES AND KORAH BIBLE DETAILS PROPHECY
The next day each man brought his
censer and lit their incense and they all stood in the door of the
tabernacle of the congregation with Moses and Aaron. Korah called together
the whole assembly of Israel and the glory of the Lord appeared to the whole
congregation. The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, Separate yourselves from
among this congregation, so I may consume them in a moment. They fell on
their faces and prayed, O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, if one
man sins, will you be angry with the whole congregation?
The Lord said to Moses, Tell the
congregation to get away from the tents of Korah, Dathan and Abiram. So
Moses got up and went to Dathan and Abiram and the elders of Israel followed
him. Moses told the congregation, Get away from the tents of these wicked
men, I beg you, and don't touch anything of theirs or you'll be taken away
in all their sins. So the congregation got away from the tents of Korah,
Dathan and Abiram on every side and Dathan and Abiram came out and stood in
the door of their tents with their wives and their little children.
Moses said, By this you'll know
that the Lord has sent me to do all these works. I haven't done them
according to my own ideas. If these men die natural deaths, then the Lord
has not sent me. But if the Lord does something unusual, and the earth
opens up her mouth and swallows them up with all their belongings and they
fall down alive into the pit, then you'll understand that these men have
provoked the Lord.
As soon as Moses finished speaking,
the earth opened her mouth and swallowed them up with everything that
belonged to them, along with the men that associated with Korah and all
their things. Then the earth closed on them and they perished from the
congregation. All that were close by, ran at their cries in fear that they
might be swallowed up too.
KORAH IN THE BIBLE DESTRUCTION
MOSES AND KORAH BIBLE DEVASTATION
Then there came a fire from the
Lord that destroyed the 250 men that offered the incense. Eleazar, the son
of Aaron the priest, picked up all the brass censers out of the fire and
scattered their fire in the distance because they were holy. Then he made
wide plates out of them to use as a covering for the altar because they were
offered before the Lord, so they were holy. They were a reminder to the
children of Israel that nobody who wasn't of the seed of Aaron was to come
near to offer incense before the Lord, so that they won't end up like Korah
and his company.
Still, on the next day, the
congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and Aaron
again saying, You've killed the people of the Lord. The congregation looked
toward the tabernacle of the congregation and saw the cloud covered it and
the glory of the Lord appeared. Moses and Aaron came up to the tabernacle
of the congregation and the Lord told Moses, Get away from among this
congregation so I may destroy them as in a moment, and Moses and Aaron fell
on their faces once again. Moses said to Aaron, Take a censer and put fire
in it from off the altar and put incense on. Go quickly to the congregation
and make atonement for them, because the Lord is angry and the plague has
Aaron did what Moses said and ran
into the middle of the congregation. The plague had begun among the people
and Aaron put on incense and made an atonement for them. He stood between
the dead and the living and plague was stopped. The amount of people that
died in the plague were 14,700 other than those that died in the matter of
KORAH IN THE BIBLE AND END TIMES
MOSES AND KORAH BIBLE HOUSEKEEPING
Evil is a powerful tool that the devil uses. In
Matthew 24:24 Jesus talks about how in the
Times, that many will be deceived, EVEN THE ELECT (Chosen) IF POSSIBLE.
This story is a perfect example of how the elect were deceived. Jealousy
was the evil tool that was used. So always be cautious when someone wants
you to follow something that isn't of the doctrine that Jesus taught. Which
was a worse plague? The one God sent to clean up the camp again, or the
plague of jealousy that was defiling His people?
Never underestimate what God will do to clean up the camp. Tsunami's, hurricanes, earthquakes, diseases, famine, pestilence, etc ... These are just a few things that come to mind of what may be a
little of the Lord's housekeeping. What's that you say? Oh, there were a
lot of innocent people in those places? There were times when entire
nations of people were destroyed if God wanted to. He does what He does,
and some things are not for us to know why. It is amazing how people question why God allowed this or that to happen and when He destroys someone that may have been going to be the next Hitler, God is questioned yet again. This is how God addresses that issue..
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
KORAH IN THE BIBLE SUMMARY
MOSES AND KORAH BIBLE CONCLUSION
God doesn't owe anybody, anything and everything under heaven is His to do
with what He pleases. On a lighter note, if you do what He pleases and you
are among those who are in a clean up zone, you can look forward to a
miraculous survival and/or Heaven on the other side.
In our next story, we'll learn
about the staff of Aaron that bloomed so be sure to join us again for more
