Prophetic Proof of Purchase  006


Shalom, this is Yuval Shomron with another Prophetic Proof of Purchase.  God has personally chosen land of Israel for His chosen people.  Just how personal is His intervention?  Let’s take a look at EXO 31:18, and 32:15-16,  And when He had finished speaking with him upon Mount Sinai, He gave Moses the two tablets of the testimony, tablets of stone, written by the finger of God.”   “Then Moses turned and went down from the mountain with the two tablets of the testimony in his hand, tablets which were written on both sides; they were written on one side and the other.  And the tablets were God's work, and the writing was God's writing engraved on the tablets.”

Have you ever paid much attention to the fact that the tablets of law were written by the finger of God?  In Hebrew the word here is “etzbah”, meaning literally “finger”.  This is no spiritual or allegorical picture.  God actually etched or engraved the law on the stones with His finger.  By the way, we are not talking about something soft, like sandstone.  Mount Sinai, and the surrounding peaks are made of solid granite, streaked with porphyry, a red volcanic rock.  You most likely recognize granite as the rock used today for tombstones.  Granite is very hard stuff.

Of course, God is much more real, and therefore solid, than anything here on this temporal planet.  In Cecil B. Demille’s epic film “The Ten Commandments”, this writing on the tablets was depicted as a sort of lightning coming out of God’s finger and engraving on the stone.  I don’t really think God needed the lightning.

I’ve climbed Mount Sinai’s 7380 feet twice.  It’s possible to walk up without any ropes or other help in about two hours.  Because of it’s height, and the stark surroundings of the Sinai wilderness, you really do feel it is possible to be alone there with the Heavenly Father.

No other people on earth can claim such an intimate visitation by God the Father himself.  Why did He choose the Jewish people?  Well, they must have done something right, since these very 10 commandments He wrote with His own finger are the basis of the law in nearly every civilized country today.  And the Jewish people brought them down the mountain to us.

If not for the introduction of these two stone tablets into the world by Moses, we would be ruled by man’s personal opinion, judged according to society’s winds of change, and probably living in total chaos!

Thanks to the wandering Jews in the Sinai, our social order is based on  rules carved God’s finger.  And we should keep our hands off.



This is Yuval Shomron in Jerusalem.
