THE TRUTH IS — One of the greatest problems with God’s People today

THE TRUTH IS —  One of the greatest problems with God’s People today, and has  been all the way back to Egypt in – Exodus 32:1. The natural  tendency of folks in their Fallen Adamic Nature is to “be like  folks of the past.”
We want to “be like them.” Even after the  12 Tribes of Israel had been brought up out of Egypt, they still  “looked back to Egypt” – Acts 7:39-40-41 – making a calf  their own god. They were not pleased with what God was then  furnishing them in the Wilderness, as per – Num. 11:1-6-10;  Notice clearly in Verse 5 – “We remember the fish, which we did  eat in Egypt freely; the cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks,  and the onions, and the garlick.”
In other words “wow, we did  really have it made back in Egypt.” Now read again Verses 7—10.  While they were in the Wilderness, enroute to the Promised Land,  they complained thusly: Num. 16:14 – that Moses had not led  them to a Land flowing with milk and honey. They were certainly  not walking by Faith, but sight only – 2nd Cor. 5:7.
