SALVATION THROUGH THE BLOOD AND CROSS OF JESUS

SALVATION THROUGH THE BLOOD AND CROSS OF JESUS
Why do we need a Saviour? The scriptures say the Lord was obligated to make atonement for sin because He is our Creator and Father Who wants to save us from being lost for eternity.

AARON AND MIRIAM

AARON AND MIRIAM




Aaron was three years older than Moses. Miriam was much older than both her brothers. Moses was one hundred and twenty years old when he died yet his eyes were not dim nor his natural strength abated (Deuteronomy 34:7). Aaron was one hundred and twenty-three years old when he died after climbing to the top of Mount Hor (Numbers 33:39). Miriam topped her brothers. After the children of Israel had left Egypt, Miriam would have been in her mid nineties but was still able to sing and dance. ‘Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron and Moses took a tambourine in her hand and all the women went out after her with tambourines and with dances. Miriam sang, "Sing to the Lord, for He has triumphed gloriously, the horse and his rider He has thrown into the sea’" (Exodus 15:20 & 21). They were in the wilderness for forty years so Miriam would have been about one hundred and thirty-five when she died.
