Aaron's Rod Prophecy
The Rod of Aaron Story From the Aaron's Staff Events

It's a fine day here at Daily Bread and we're happy to have you join us again for our study of the book of Numbers. In our last story, we learned about Korah, and the story of the earth swallowing him up with the leaders of his group who contended with Moses. And then fire from the Lord came down and consumed the rest of the 250 who supported their cause. Then God sent a plague that killed 14,700 people who blamed Moses for killing the people of the Lord.

That brings us to today's story and the Lord said to Moses, Talk to the children of Israel and take from each of them a staff, according to the house of their fathers, and have each of them write his name on his staff. Write Aaron's name on the staff of Levi because one staff will be for each house of their fathers.

Then put them in the tabernacle of the congregation in front of the testimony and I'll meet with you there. The man's staff, whom I will choose, will blossom, and I'll stop the murmurings that the children of Israel have against you.

The Rod of Aaron Story From the Aaron's Staff Miracle

God is saying that when all these staffs (cut tree branches made into a cane like pole) were brought He would have one of them blossom without root. Cool huh? The budding staff was to show them once and for all, who the Lord chose to serve as priests and serve the tabernacle, since they kept hassling Moses about it.

The Tabernacle was a very holy place and the person or people who were tend to it needed to be God's choice. Think of it this way. You have your yard, then your home and then your bedroom. You feel comfortable with neighbors visiting out in the yard when they're invited, and occasionally, you invite certain friends and/or relatives into your home, but your bedroom is your Holy of Holies, where it is private for prayer and rest and nobody belongs there but you.

Aaron's Rod Promise

Now, the children of Israel were all God's children, and He loved them all, but you can understand, you wouldn't want your great aunt's daughter in laws cousin to come wandering into your house uninvited, and light your candles for you. You want who you choose to be able to enter the most holy areas of your home.

So Moses told the children of Israel what the Lord said. Each one of their princes gave Moses a staff and Aaron's was among them. He took them in the tabernacle of witness (where the ark was) and the next day Moses went into the the tabernacle of witness and the staff of Aaron for the house of Levi had budded and flowered and it had almonds on it.

Isn't that just so awesome? A dead branch blossomed? It even had almonds on it? Wow ... That's nuts! 😁

Moses brought out all the staffs to the children of Israel. They saw Aaron's staff blooming and they each took back their own staff. Then God told Moses, Bring Aaron's staff back before the testimony to be kept for a sign against the rebels; and take away their murmurings from me, so they don't die. So Moses did what the Lord told him.

Aaron's Rod Conclusion
The Rod of Aaron Story From the Aaron's Staff Summary

There were only three things that were in the ark of the covenant (Hebrews 9:4). The golden pot that had manna (Exodus 16:33), Aaron's staff that budded (Numbers 17:8), and the tables of the covenant (Exodus 25:16). That budding staff was a pretty important thing to God for Him to want it kept in the ark.

The children of Israel felt sorry for themselves and they told Moses, Look, we're dying, we're perishing, we're all dying out. Whoever comes near the tabernacle of the Lord will die. Will we all be destroyed with dying?

Well, God already said who would enter the Promised Land, and if those who were spoken of choose to provoke God before they get there, it's fairly clear what's gonna happen. Be sure and join us again as we follow the Moses and the children of Israel through the wilderness. There's plenty of interesting stories ahead, here at Daily Bread.

There is a force out there that is attempting to overtake us all; it is Satan. There is another force that is protecting us from him; it is the Holy Spirit. It is a battle for souls. This battle is called Spiritual Warfare, and like it or not, you are right in the middle of it.
