And the LORD came down in a cloud, and spake unto him, and took of the Spirit that was upon him, and gave it unto the seventy elders: and it came to pass, that, when the Spirit rested upon them, they prophesied, and did not cease. But there remained two of the men in the camp, the name of the one was Eldad, and the name of the other Medad: and the Spirit rested upon them; and they were of them that were written, but went not out unto the tabernacle: and they prophesied in the camp. And there ran a young man, and told Moses, and said, Eldad and Medad do prophesy in the camp. And Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of Moses, one of his young men, answered and said, My lord Moses, forbid them. And Moses said unto him, Enviest thou for my sake? would God that all the LORD'S people were prophets, and that the LORD would put His Spirit upon them! (Num. 11:25-29)
Moses did not feel the need for jealousy or envy when his elders prophesied, whether in the camp or around the tabernacle. Having heard from God that nothing is outside of His ability to accomplish, Moses simply praised the Lord for what He was doing amongst His people and prayed that all would be able to prophesy as the people of God. God’s Spirit is not contained or unable to manifest as He wills but is mighty to save and gives gifts, including prophecy, to whomever He wishes according to His will. Moses rebuke of Joshua was a mild reminder to Joshua that even Moses was not God and it was God who was doing His work among His people not Moses. The Spirit came and went as He willed and according to His purposes but Moses prayed for the day when God would fill all His people and they would speak forth the Word of God.
Since the birth of the Church at Pentecost, God has filled His people with the Spirit of God to do His will and accomplish His work in this world. Each of us who are born again by faith in Him and His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary through repentance and His power unto Salvation are equipped with His Spirit and given His gifts and fruits for His purposes and His glory. He equips and enables us in His work that we might encourage one another and engage people to enjoy Jesus Christ as we reach the lost unto reconciliation with the Father, teach all nations of who God is and what He has done in us, and preach the whole Word to the whole world until He is done with us and calls us Home to be with Him.
Until that day, God has sent those of us that know Him out into this world to reach the lost that they might be saved from sin. He desires that His people strive to be holy and obedient unto Him that we might minister to those around us who are hurting and in need as He provides. We serve others, equipped with the Word of reconciliation and righteousness, rightly divided and fitly spoken, that they may see Christ in us, the hope of Glory. Our GOD has commanded us to love one another with an unfeigned love, even as He first loved us, and to disciple one another in the Word of GOD so that we may all grow in grace and in the Knowledge of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Our Lord has commissioned those who are His with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to go where He sends us in the power of the Holy Spirit. As we go, we are to proclaim the Good News of forgiveness through repentance and reconciliation with the Father through faith in His Son, that those who believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah of GOD might have life in His Name.
GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to faith in Christ and His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD, forgiveness from GOD, and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
