On of my earliest realities in Christianity is that you don’t speak against authority and go scot free. It is so real that you can’t make me cooperate with you in any way. That’s when I was growing up. Today as a minister, I’ve come to the truth that I’m not Gods supervisor sent on earth to police anyone. This is an aspect of the secrets of bidden personal covenants and why some have succeeded and others have struggled. Notice for the first time, Miriam is listed before Aaron. Our suspicion is that the matter probably began with her. We imagine the enemy telling her that this boy she watched by the Nile has bitten too much that he could chew. She thought She needed to undress this masquerade once and for all, as we would say it in Africa. She perhaps got Aaron on her side and they began to chide Moses on marrying an Ethiopian wife. Scholars have not yet agreed whether this was Ziporrah or someone else. Then God got personally involved and struck her with with leprosy( v.10 ). Check out the phrase, ” And the Lord heard it ! ”. There’s an abundance of historical evidence to show that God can and has disciplined erring servants. Don’t get in between. Don’t advise God. Don’t talk about it. Just pray for them. Don’t pay the price. You don’t need it. Notice how quickly Aaron began to plead. The same principle applies in talking to parents, seniors, superiors and your teachers. God knows what you do not.
And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman. And they said, Hath the Lord indeed spoken only by Moses? hath he not spoken also by us? And the Lord heard it. Numbers 12:1-2 KJV
