NOTE- On this video [park] Bobby mentioned how Moses did eventually make it into the promised land- yes- at the time of the Mount of transfiguration. As I was writing the notes- I remembered I taught this to the guys over the years. I forgot I taught it to them- and Bobby forgot too- but it showed me how we all learn from one another- and even if we forget who we learned something from- it really makes no difference- because I learned it from a teacher years ago as well. It’s something I bring up when people mention how Moses was forbidden from entering the promised land- and I usually say ‘I found a verse where he made it in’- and bible students usually say ‘where’- and the answer is Moses appeared with Jesus and Elijah on the mount [verses below]
Because they regard not the works of the Lord, nor the operation of his hands, he shall destroy them, and not build them up.
NEW- Talked more about local issues- and last night attended the wonderful wedding of my friends Connie and Ismael.
It was at a beautiful spot in Rockport- and we had a great celebration.
I was going to post the Acts 15 teaching but will do that tomorrow.
As of now [5:30 am] I’m not sure how many videos I will do today-
If I get with some of the guys I’ll try and do a few- or maybe I will take a ride and head up to San Antonio.
Often times in society- people see wrong- they see official oppression- or retaliation by those in authority.
And because it comes from those in authority- it puts a particular type of fear into them.
I have had friends tell me stories of retaliation by cops over the years-
And they usually tell me ‘John- don’t say anything’.
This has happened more than once.
If a civilian did things to them- they would take legal action.
But when it comes from those in authority- the usual response is ‘they will come after me’-
That is criminal- that is wicked- that is unjust.
And cops who do stuff like this- should be removed from the force- and face criminal penalties.
With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.
The voice of the Lord is upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the Lord is upon many waters.
Isaiah 61King James Version (KJV)
61 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God;
O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.
This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

NOTE- On the video- The Park- I mentioned the dark skin wife of Moses- the translations either say Cushite- or Ethiopian- most bible commentators say the wife of Moses was indeed Black. Though the text does not say this is why Miriam had the problem with the Black wife of Moses- we can speculate that it was because she was Black.
Numbers 12:1 And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman.
Numbers 12:2 And they said, Hath the LORD indeed spoken only by Moses? hath he not spoken also by us? And the LORD heard it.
Numbers 12:3 (Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.)
Numbers 12:4 And the LORD spake suddenly unto Moses, and unto Aaron, and unto Miriam, Come out ye three unto the tabernacle of the congregation. And they three came out.
Numbers 12:5 And the LORD came down in the pillar of the cloud, and stood in the door of the tabernacle, and called Aaron and Miriam: and they both came forth.
Numbers 12:6 And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream.
Numbers 12:7 My servant Moses is not so, who is faithful in all mine house.
Numbers 12:8 With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and not in dark speeches; and the similitude of the LORD shall he behold: wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?
Numbers 12:9 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against them; and he departed.
Numbers 12:10 And the cloud departed from off the tabernacle; and, behold, Miriam became leprous, white as snow: and Aaron looked upon Miriam, and, behold, she was leprous.
Water from the Rock
…10and Moses and Aaron gathered the assembly before the rock. And he said to them, “Listen now, you rebels; shall we bring forth water for you out of this rock?” 11Then Moses lifted up his hand and struck the rock twice with his rod; and water came forthabundantly, and the congregation and their beastsdrank. 12But the LORD said to Moses and Aaron, “Because you have not believed Me, to treat Me as holy in the sight of the sons of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them.”…
New American Standard Bible
1 Corinthians 10:4
and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ.
“Behold, I will stand before you there on the rock at Horeb; and you shall strike the rock, and water will come out of it, that the people may drink.” And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.
“He led you through the great and terrible wilderness, with its fiery serpents and scorpions and thirsty ground where there was no water; He brought water for you out of the rock of flint.
You broke open springs and torrents; You dried up ever-flowing streams.
He split the rocks in the wilderness And gave them abundant drink like the ocean depths.
He brought forth streams also from the rock And caused waters to run down like rivers.
