Today we red three chapters, one chapter from Matthew and two chapters from Exodus.
In Matthew 11 the followers of John asked if Jesus is the Messiah. Jesus answered back that John is Elijah, sent to prepare the way. Jesus despaired of the current generation, but promised: “Come to me…. my yoke is easy and my burden is light”.
In Exodus 32 Moses had come down from the mountain and what did he find? He found the Golden Calf and the people singing and dancing in orgies. Moses became so angry that he threw down the two tablets with God’s commandments, and they broke in pieces. Then he pleaded with God not to destroy His people.
In Exodus 33 God told the Israelites to leave the place they were staying, take off all the ornaments they were wearing and go to the promised land. Moses established the tent of meeting, and there he asked to see God. God promised Moses he would see His back while hiding “In the cleft of the rock”
