The Test of Manna

READ EXODUS 16:1-12

  1. Verse 1: It had now been a month and a half since they had left Egypt. Deep in the wilderness.
  2. Verse 2 says “the whole congregation complained against Moses and Aaron”. Two plus million people complaining.
  3. Verse 3 “We wish we had died in Egypt- at least we would have had food. You’ve brought us out here to starve us to death.
  4. Remember: They are saying this all while the manifest presence of God is in front of them. (Cloud by day and Pillar of Fire at night.)  How could they not fear God?  How could they complain after God had done so much for them?

Answer:  They had become too familiar with the presence of God.  They had started taking the presence of God for granted.  This is a warning for us too.
