Moses-Why He Could Not Enter Canaan?

Bible Questions Answered:
“Why couldn't moses enter Canaan?”
Lucille/ Guelph, Ontario Canada

Bible Answer:
Bible Text: (Read Numbers 13,14,20)

The Lord had lead Israel up to the borders of Canaan, to spie out the land and to conquer and possess it.
But Israel, would not do so, believing that the land had walled cities and giants, so they refused The Lords command.

Israel's judgment:
Numbers 14:34,35 NLT
34 “‘Because your men explored the land for forty days, you must wander in the wilderness for forty years—a year for each day, suffering the consequences of your sins. Then you will discover what it is like to have Me for an enemy.’
35 I, The Lord, have spoken! I will certainly do these things to every member of the community who has conspired against Me. They will be destroyed here in this wilderness, and here they will die!”

Sentenced to 40 years of wanderings in the desert, wanderings until all who had complained and refused The Lord's wishes, had dropped dead in the desert.

While wandering in the desert, Israel needed water.

Numbers 20:1-13 NLT
1 In the first month of the year, the whole community of Israel arrived in the wilderness of Zin and camped at Kadesh. While they were there, Miriam died and was buried.
2 There was no water for the people to drink at that place, so they rebelled against Moses and Aaron.
3 The people blamed Moses and said, “If only we had died in The Lord’s presence with our brothers!
4 Why have you brought the congregation of The Lord’s people into this wilderness to die, along with all our livestock?
5 Why did you make us leave Egypt and bring us here to this terrible place? This land has no grain, no figs, no grapes, no pomegranates, and no water to drink!”
6 Moses and Aaron turned away from the people and went to the entrance of the Tabernacle, where they fell face down on the ground. Then the glorious presence of The Lord appeared to them,
7 and The Lord said to Moses,
8 “You and Aaron must take the staff and assemble the entire community. As the people watch,
speak to The Rock over there, and it will pour out its water. You will provide enough water from The Rock to satisfy the whole community and their livestock.”
9 So Moses did as he was told. He took the staff from the place where it was kept before The Lord.
10 Then he and Aaron summoned the people to come and gather at The Rock. “Listen, you rebels!” he shouted. “Must we bring you water from this Rock?”
11 Then Moses raised his hand and struck the rock twice with the staff, and water gushed out. So the entire community and their livestock drank their fill.
12 But The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “Because you did not trust Me enough to demonstrate My holiness to the people of Israel, you will not lead them into the land I am giving them!”
13 This place was known as the waters of Meribah (which means “arguing”) because there the people of Israel argued with The Lord, and there He demonstrated His holiness among them.

The Lord had told Moses and Aaron, to “speak to The Rock”/ but Moses and Aaron, acted in their own fleshly might, by striking the Rock twice, and water came forth.

They had disobeyed the simplest of commands of The Lord.

Numbers 20:12 NLT
But The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “Because you did not trust Me enough to demonstrate My holiness to the people of Israel, you (Moses and Aaron.) will not lead them into the land I am giving them!”

The message here of Israel, and of Moses and Aaron is this, disobedience, costs us!

And a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of The Lord your God, but turn aside out of The Way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which ye have not known.

Hebrews 2:1-3 KJV
1 Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.
2 For if The Word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompense of reward;
3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by
The Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard Him;

In Biblical Typology, The Rock (Numbers 20), represents The Lord!

NO, not Peter, wouldn't be born for many centuries!
The Rock, is none other than The Lord!
