Week 6 Day 5
Everything God commands we will do.This good intention was short-lived
In Moses' absence the resolution of the people did not last forty days.
Aaron's role is interestingAaron was a helper not a leaderIn Moses' absence he allowed the people to lead
It sounds like Aaron wanted a dual deity one tangible golden cow one intangible Lord GodMaybe he just wanted to play it safe keep everybody happy.
THE MOUNTAIN CLIMBER In Moses' absence, God was ignored and replaced. Exodus 24 and 31
3Moses came and told the people all the words of the Lord. All the people answered with one voice, "All the words which the Lord has said we will do." 4And Moses wrote all the words of the Lord. He rose early in the morning, and built an altar at the foot of the mountain, and twelve pillars according to the twelve tribes of Israel. 5Then he sent young men who offered burnt offerings and sacrificed peace offerings to the Lord. 6Moses took half the blood and put it in basins, and half the blood he sprinkled on the altar. 7Then he took the Book of the Covenant and read in the hearing of the people. And they said, "All that the Lord has said we will do." 12The Lord said to Moses, "Come up to Me on the mountain; I will give you tablets of stone, and the law and commandments which I have written, that you may teach them." l3So Moses arose with his assistant Joshua, and went up to the mountain of God. 14He said to the elders, "Wait here for us until we come back to you. Indeed, Aaron and Hur are with you. If any man has a difficulty, let him go to them." 15Then Moses went up into the mountain. 16Now the glory of the Lord rested on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days. On the seventh day He called to Moses out of the midst of the cloud. 17The sight of the glory of the Lord was like a consuming fire. 18Moses went into the midst of the cloud.And Moses was on the mountain forty days and forty nights. 1When Moses delayed coming down from the mountain, the people gathered to Aaron, and said, "Come, make us gods that shall go before us; for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him." 2Aaron said to them, "Break off the golden earrings which are in the ears of your wives, sons, and daughters, and bring them to me." 3So all the people broke off the golden earrings and brought them to Aaron. 4He received the gold from their hand, and he fashioned it with an engraving tool, and made a molded calf. They said, "This is your god, O Israel, that brought you out of the land of Egypt!" 5When Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it. And Aaron made a proclamation and said, "Tomorrow is a feast to the Lord." 6Then they rose early on the next day, offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings, and the people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.
