Moses' Death Deuteronomy 34

Deuteronomy 34:4 "And the LORD said unto him, This is the land which I sware unto Abraham, unto Isaac and unto Jacob, saying, I will give it unto thy seed: I have caused thee to see it with thine eyes, but thou shalt not go over thither."

v5 "So Moses the servant of the LORD died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the LORD.

v6 "And he buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, v7 And Moses was an hundred and twenty ..."

Moses was not allowed to enter Canaan because he struck the Rock when he was told to speak to it. There is no mention of this in this chapter, just that he cannot go over.

v7"...his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated."

Mention is made of Joshua taking command then a compliment is paid to Moses.

v10 "And there arose not a prophet since in Israel like unto Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face, .."

Moses is now gone. We have covered quite a lot of history:

Genesis to Abraham
Abraham to Moses
Moses to Joshua

Redemption started with Moses when he led the children of Israel out of Egypt. It is brought to victory in the book of Joshua. The predicted apostasy is ahead of us and the carrying away into captivity. Then for a brief time, Israel is restored so the promise of Christ could be fulfilled. Then Israel is conquered again. This brief period was under Gentile rule however. We must wait for when Israel is gathered home and King Messiah rules with righteousness.

Psalms 32:1 "Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered."
