God Reveals More Of Himself To Those Whose Faith Is Immovable

The Tabernacle in the Wilderness

Numbers 12:4-8

4 Suddenly the LORD said to Moses, Aaron, and Miriam, “You three come out to the tent of meeting.” So the three of them went out. 5 Then the LORD descended in a pillar of cloud, stood at the entrance to the tent, and summoned Aaron and Miriam. When the two of them came forward, 6 he said:

“Listen to what I say:
If there is a prophet among you from the LORD,
I make myself known to him in a vision;
I speak with him in a dream.
7 Not so with my servant Moses;
he is faithful in all my household.
8 I speak with him directly,
openly, and not in riddles;
he sees the form of the LORD.

Miriam was the instigator who got Aaron their brother involved against Moses because they didn’t like his wife. 

Miriam didn’t realize that messing with Moses was like messing with God Himself which is extremely dangerous. God called all three into the tent of meeting to deal with Moses’ accuser. If you look at verse 8 which says, “I speak with him directly, openly, and not in riddles; he sees the form of the LORD.” It was in reference to having more knowledge. Let’s focus on the word “form” which gives the meaning of more insight or understanding of who God is which is revealed only to the faithful.

In Deuteronomy 4:15-17 which says, “15 “Diligently watch yourselves—because you did not see any form on the day the LORD spoke to you out of the fire at Horeb— 16 so you don’t act corruptly and make an idol for yourselves in the shape of any figure: a male or female form, 17 or the form of any animal on the earth, any winged creature that flies in the sky…”

If you notice, God didn’t show the Israelites His form, more revelation about Himself, because they didn’t have strong faith like Moses and would eventually fall into idolatry, making an image of God’s form and end up worshipping that instead of the Living God. 

The reason God showed Moses His form was that his faith was solid, being completely dedicated to the LORD.  

When our faith is strong, steadfast, immovable, and completely devoted to Jesus Christ, He will reveal more of Himself through His Word to us.
