The rest of the story...
Deut. 34, Luke 9:26-37, Eph. 3:20
It would be easy to think that God was a little too hard on Moses. It was such a small mistake in the middle of so much faithfulness. And those Israelites were so demanding.
After all that faithful work, Moses was destined to only view the promised land from the top of a mountain, it doesn’t seem fair.
But Deuteronomy 34 isn’t the end of the story. God’s view of Moses’ life was not limited to the 120 years he spent walking the earth. The best word we can use for God’s concept of time is ‘today’. God’s today for Moses was told in Luke 9:26-37.
In God’s continuing story, Moses found himself standing not only in the promise land, but next to the Promised One, Jesus, along with Elijah to encourage Jesus as the final redemption approached.
There is another today coming in God’s economy of time when Moses will see Jesus in the promise land again as a part of the raptured church. Will you be there?
God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us. Eph. 3:20 The Message
