So Moses the servant of the Lord died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the Lord. And He buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, opposite Beth Peor; but no one knows his grave to this day. Deuteronomy 34:5-6
After years of service, Moses dies and is laid to rest by the hand of God.
For the entire nation of Israel, he was the only leader they knew.
Behind the scenes, a dark scheme begins to develop.
Jude reveals Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing judgment, but said, The Lord rebuke thee. Jude 1:9
Why would the devil want the body of Moses?
I’ll give you my opinion.
Satan wants to be God. He wants power, position, and praise for himself.
He mocks God in all things.
For whatever miracle God has, Satan produces a counterfeit and lie that looks like it.
If Satan resurrects the body of Moses then he controls the people and has the power and ability to lead the people astray from God.
If you think this is too far-fetched, just read Revelation 13:3-4.
Satan is a murderer and a liar! (John 8:44) As powerful as Satan might seem, the day comes when he will bow before God and confess “Jesus is Lord!”
However, this is your declaration: You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 1 John 4:4
There was a singing group that came to Word of Life in Lufkin soon after we came on the air. I remember our administrator cautioning us to not favor one church or denomination over another. One of the songs they sang was based on that scripture. A friend of mine and I visited their Church for the concert. Next day, on the air, I mentioned I had visited the previous evening, then I remembered what brother Dwyan had said about having one church over the other, so as soon as I said I had been to word of Life, I said, “but I’m not going back”
Talk about getting razzed about that.
That’s favoring, not having.
