It was the time of the
passing of Moses. There upon the foothills of Abrhim, Moses was taken into
the heart of the Lord Adonai, leaving his staff upon the mountains above
the Dead Sea and The Promised Land. Within sight of the Promised
Land and the earthquake that took all but the first born of the house of
Korah who had risen up challenge the authority that the Lord had placed
into the hands of Moses and Aaron who had delivered the tribes of Abraham
from the slavery of Kemet.
The Lord Adonai who
brought forth water when the people thirsted in the desert. The God of
Abraham who fed his children manna when there was naught else to eat. Only
Korah son of his father was saved to meet the messengers of Pharaoh. For
after the passing of the Angel of Death on the Passover the Malak of Egypt's
affliction fled not with the tribes of Israel but remained in the land
of Ramses for the forty years.
Before the Wrath of
Ramses the Great the priests and magicians fell by sword and stone until
finally his heart finally softened for his people and their afflictions.
When the house of Aaron
heard the words of Pharaoh beseeching his adopted brother Moses to deliver
the people of Egypt from the Angel of the Passover.
The messengers arrived
as the sun set over the Promised Land three months after the passing of
Moses and bearing gifts of gold and incense to the God of Moses who is
also the God of Wrath and Mercy.
And so the council met
through the night before the Ark of the Covenant praying to understand
God's will on the fate of the children of Egypt. With the first light shinning
off the Ark of the Lord, **** the first son of Aaron , himself heavy in
both years and memories reaching back to the Exodus came forth from the
tent where the Ark was kept and called to Korah. And **** and Korah went
to speak with the messengers of Pharaoh.
