22/11/2020 – GOD Is Always Faithful

Bahan Alkitab: Numbers 13 – 14

Tanggal: 22/11/2020

Ringkasan:

Tuhan membebaskan bangsa Israel dari perbudakan di Mesir. Tuhan setia akan janjiNya dan akan memenuhi janjiNya akan negri perjanjian.
Bangsa Israel mengalami sendiri begitu banyak kasih setia Tuhan dan mujizat mujizat yang menyatakan kuasa dan pemeliharaan Tuhan Sang Pencipta.
Akhirnya sekarang bangsa Israel sampai di dekat Kanaan, tanah yang Tuhan janjikan untuk Bangsa Israel.

Musa mengutus 12 mata mata yaitu 1 pemimpin dari setiap suku, untuk masuk ke Kanaan.
12 pengintai ini ditugaskan untuk mencari tahu keadaan Kanaan.

Sesudah 40 hari 12 pengintai ini pun kembali dan melaporkan apa yang mereka lihat.
Memang Kanaan adalah negri yang berlimpah susu dan madu hanya saja penduduknya pun bertubuh besar.
10 dari 12 pengintai ini merasa takut dan mulai mengatakan hal buruk mengenai ini, mereka melaporkan bahwa penduduk Kanaan seperti raksasa dan Bangsa Israel hanyalah seperti belalang. Mereka pun melaporkan bahwa Kanaan adalah negri yang memakan penduduknya.

Mendengar laporan yang menakutkan itu, Bangsa Israel mulai meratap dan bahkan mereka menyatakan keinginannya untuk mengangkat seorang pemimpin yang akan membawa mereka kembali ke Mesir.

Namun 2 pengintai, Yosua dan Kaleb, berkata hal yang lain. Melalui imannya mereka percaya jika Tuhan berkehendak memberikan Kanaan pada Israel maka itu pasti terjadi dan meminta bangsa Israel jangan melawan Tuhan.
Sayangnya Bangsa Israel tidak mendengarkan mereka bahkan mengancam hendak melontari batu.

Bangsa Israel mulai melupakan penyertaan Tuhan yang mereka alami dan meragukan Tuhan. Bangsa Israel berdosa. Musa datang kepada Tuhan memintakan pengampunan untuk Bangsa Israel. Tuhan mengampuni umatNya. Bangsa Israel tidak dilenyapkan namun konsekuensi dosa tetap ada.

Bangsa Israel harus mengembara di padang gurun selama 40 tahun sebelum mereka boleh masuk tanah perjanjian, Kanaan. Semua Bangsa Israel yang berusia 20 tahun ke atas akan mati dalam pengembaraan ini. Hanya anak anak yang di bawah 20 tahun dan keturunan Yosua serta Kaleb yang akan masuk ke Kanaan.
Sedangkan 10 pengintai yang berkata hal buruk, mati, kena tulah di hadapan Tuhan.

Tuhan yang berjanji adalah Pencipta dan Pemilik dari dunia ini. Tuhan PASTI menepati janjiNya.
Kita, sama seperti Bangsa Israel yang sudah berdosa, dapat datang kepada Tuhan untuk mengaku dosa kita dan bertobat.
Setiap dosa akan membawa konsekuensi tersendiri.
Tuhan adalah setia dan adil dan akan mengampuni jika kita datang kepadaNya.
Jangan pernah meragukan Tuhan tapi hendaklah kita selalu percaya kepadaNya.
Janji Tuhan yang terbesar yaitu janji akan Juru Selamat pun sudah ditepati.
Tuhan Yesus datang ke dunia untuk menghapus dosa kita yang percaya kepadaNya supaya kita tidak binasa tapi beroleh hidup yang kekal.
Mari datanglah kepada Yesus saat ini juga dan terus setia kepadaNya.

22/11/2020 – God is always Faithful

Bahan Alkitab: Numbers 13 – 14

Tanggal: 22/11/2020

Ringkasan:

Lesson focus: God may punish us when we disobey Him, but He promises to forgive us and be faithful to us.

GOD led His people to the border of Canaan, the land He promised to them. GOD commanded Moses to send out 12 leaders to explore the land. Moses sent 12 spies, 1 from each tribe. Moses asked them to check:
1. Explore/check the land
2. People: strong/weak; many/few?
3. They have walls/not?
4. Soil: fertile or poor?
5. Bring back some fruits from the land

They explored the land for 40 days then they came back. They carried a huge bunch of delicious grapes, sweet figs, pomegranates. When they came back, everyone crowded around the spies. They wanted to hear & see what they got.

They said: the land is beautiful and rich. Here are some of its delicious fruits. It flows with milk and honey. BUT we will never get the land, the people there are stronger and are as big as giants, we are like grasshoppers compared to them. The cities are large and have thick and high walls around them.

Two of the spies, Caleb and Joshua spoke up: Listen!!! We should go and take the land. We CAN CERTAINLY do it! Joshua & Caleb believed in The LORD’s promise and trusted that God would keep His promise!

But the Israel people didn’t want to listen to both of them but believed in the ten spies. They started to cry & grumble as usual. Some of them wanted to go back to Egypt, some wished that they had died in the desert.
Why they did not want to believe Joshua & Caleb and God’s promise? We are also like them, who always like to compare with our past: last time was nicer, last time was better, we don’t want to accept challenges or hard work or do a harder thing. They thought the promised-land, Canaan, with beautiful land, which has much milk and honey, nice fruits, GOD would just give them everything without the need to fight the people there. They forgot how GOD had always guided them, taken care of them, how GOD gave them food and water in amazing ways! The plague GOD sent to Egyptians, what happened at the Red Sea. They have forgotten all GOD’s amazing power! Now they only see that the problem is bigger than GOD! They need to trust in HIM and HE will fight for them!

They wanted to kill or stoned Joshua and Caleb! But the glory of GOD appeared at the tent of meeting and God spoke to Moses: I am ready to destroy the people who would not trust Him! Moses prayed and asked for HIS mercy, forgive their sins as YOU have forgiven them since they left Egypt till now.

The LORD forgave them but HE still punished them and still kept HIS promise to be faithful to them!

What was GOD’s punishment to them? They need to go back to the hot and dry desert for 40 years until all the grown-ups died and would not enter the promised land! They were supposed to enter the land soon but now they were punished to live in the desert for 40 years!

Only Joshua & Caleb and their descendants could enter the promised-land and GOD would FAITHFULLY lead HIS people just as HE promised! Joshua and Caleb listened and believed in God’s promise!

We are like the Israel people who always rebel and do not trust Him! Even when sometimes we doubt God’s goodness, GOD IS STILL FAITHFUL! We are undeserving of God’s love, mercy, and forgiveness! GOD sent HIS own SON to die for us so that we could be forgiven and be called His children!

Lessons learned:
• Caleb and Joshua believed in God’s promise so only them and their descendants could enter the promised land. They believed that God is bigger than all the difficulties in front of them. They believed that God would fight for and help them.
• GOD will forgive us if we sin, BUT He will surely still punish us for all our sins!
• God kept His promise – by sending Jesus to die on the cross for our sins so those who believe in Him, are saved and forgiven.

Bahan Alkitab: Bilangan 13-14

Ringkasan:

Tuhan menyertai Israel dipadang gurun, setiap saat dan membuat mereka menang dari prajurit musuh. Ketika mereka hampir masuk ketanah perjanjian, Tuhan memerintahkan 12 leaders dari 12 suku orang Israel untuk pergi mengintai Kanaan. Mereka berjalan selama 40 hari dan kembali dengan membawa hasil bumi yang sangat baik.
Hanya Caleb dan Joshua yang berseru jika mereka mau percaya Tuhan yg memberikan Kanaan. 10 orang yg lain ketakutan karena apa yg mereka lihat. Orang raksasa dan benteng yg kokoh membuat mereka takut, mau memilih leader yg baru dan mau kembali untuk menjadi budak diMesir.
Tuhan marah dan mau mematikan semua orang yg tidak taat. Dia menghukum Israel dengan membawa mereka 40 tahun dipadang gurun. Orang yg tadi kita dengar ceritanya semua meningal sebelum mereka masuk ketanah perjanjian.
Tuhan adalah Tuhan yg setia, DIA yg Suci tidak mau menerima orang yg tidak taat, DIA mematikan orang Israel yg tak taat. Meskipun Tuhan marah, DIA terus menyertai bangsa Israel. Joshua dipakai menjadi soldier yg paling hebat di israel, tapi dimasa yg akan datang, Tuhan sudah berjanji untuk memberikan anakNya Yang Tunggal.
Anak2 apakah mau menyedihkan Allah? DIA yg sayang, selalu beserta dan mau datang dari Surga kedunia untuk mendamaikan Kita dengan Allah Bapa.
