Many of the second generation Israelites saw the Messiah through faith, trusted in Him and were saved. Before the Lord brought this generation into the land, at the time He established the Jewish church, He poured His Spirit out on them and many of them became genuine believers, in contrast to the unfaithfulness shown by many in the first and second generations, who received God’s judgment as a result. We consider two things this morning:

  • That the Israelites the Lord brought out of Egypt were in fact ungodly for the most part.
  • That the Lord in His infinite mercy was pleased to pour His Spirit out on the next generation to establish His church. 
We are challenged to flee from the sins that plagued the first generation of Israelites and can still plague us today, and trust in the Lord to revive us personally.
