March 10 – The Mistrial of Jesus

March 10
Numbers 14:1-15:16
Mark 14:53-72
Psalm 53:1-6
Proverbs 11:4

Numbers 14:4 – Interesting that this crowd is mutinying, but they realize they need a leader. Thankfully Aaron is on the right side (v.5), even when they were almost stoned (v.10)!

Numbers 14:18 – Is Moses more just than God? Or is God seeing if Moses has remembered the character of God? In this verse Moses is recalling Exodus 34:6-7 – and claiming the promises that God has made.

Numbers 14:27 – God says they murmured against Him, but  v.2 says they murmured against Moses & Aaron. When we grumble against the leaders God has allowed to be in stead over us, are we grumbling against God?

Mark 14:64 – We have a grave error in the Mistrial of Jesus.

By contrast, Jewish law prevents a confession from being used as evidence in a criminal proceeding.

Psalm 53:3 – If you think you are a good person, take the

Proverbs 11:4I Dreamed that the Great Judgment Morning Had Dawned

I dreamed that the great judgment morning
Had dawned, and the trumpet had blown;
I dreamed that the nations had gathered
To judgment before the white throne;…

The rich man was there, but his money
Had melted and vanished away;
A pauper he stood in the judgment,
His debts were too heavy to pay;…

…The soul that had put off salvation,
“Not tonight; I’ll get saved by and by,
No time now to think of religion!”
At last they had found time to die.

And, oh, what a weeping and wailing,
As the lost were told of their fate;
They cried for the rocks and the mountains,
They prayed, but their prayer was too late.
