Interesting Bible Facts-1- Inheritance for the 12 tribes

The Reubenites, the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manasseh received their inheritance of the promised land, east of the Jordan. Moses, the servant of the Lord and the Israelites conquered the territories of Sihon king of the Amorites, who reigned in Heshbon and Og king of Bashan, who reigned in Ashtaroth and Edrei and gave their land to these tribes to be their possession.

The rest of the tribes, except the tribe of Levi, received their inheritance on the west side of the Jordan where Joshua and the Israelites had to fight and defeat 31 kings to conquer their lands. Eleazar the priest, Joshua the son of Nun and the heads of the tribes of the Israel distributed the inheritance to them.

The Levites were given no inheritance except for towns to live in, pasture lands for their flocks and offerings made by fire to God. God himself was to be their inheritance.

When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, bought spices, so that they might come and anoint Him. Very early on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb when the sun had risen. They were saying to one another, "Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?" Looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away, although it was extremely large. Entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting at the right, wearing a white robe; and they were amazed. And he said to them, "Do not be amazed; you are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who has been crucified. He has risen; He is not here; behold, here is the place where they laid Him. (Mark 16:1-6)

The woman here had a great desire to go and anoint the body of Jesus Christ; so very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb where they saw a problem ahead of them. They asked each other, “Who will roll away the stone from the entrance of the tomb?” After Jesus was crucified and kept in the tomb that belonged to Joseph of Arimathea, the chief priests and the Pharisees went to Pilate; “Sir, they said, we remember that while he was still alive, that deceiver said, after three days I will rise again. So give the order for the tomb to be made secure until the third day. Otherwise his disciples may come and steal the body and tell the people that he has been raised from the dead. This last deception will be worst than the first.” “Take a guard”, Pilate answered, “ Go make the tomb as secure as you know how. So they went and made the tomb secure by putting a seal on the stone and posting the guard. The chief priest and the Pharisees made the tomb very secure thinking that what Jesus had said about rising on the third day wouldn’t come true. But we see that Jesus rose up from the dead. Even before going to the cross, he had told Martha, “I am the resurrection and the life.”

The chief priests and the Pharisees had made the tomb secure by placing a very large stone and then sealing the tomb. And that’s why the woman thought that they had a problem ahead of them as they were going to the tomb. And so they asked each other, “Who will roll away the stone from the entrance of the tomb?” But then God had already done a great miracle there. The stone had been rolled away even before they reached the tomb. Sometimes we wonder about the problems that are there in our lives and wonder how they will be solved. But then we must remember that God is able to do great miracles for us at any time. Jesus who said that he is the resurrection and the life, is able to do great things for you and me. Here the woman thought that they had a problem ahead of them. But God had gone ahead of them and removed the problem from their lives. The stone that was very large was rolled away. And as they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side and they were alarmed. They saw an angel and he said, “Don’t be alarmed, you are looking for Jesus, the Nazarene who was crucified. He is risen.”

The great news for you and me is that Jesus has risen from the dead. And as he told his disciples, "All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth." Jesus is King of Kings and Lord of Lords. And he loves you with an everlasting love. Stay in his love. He is able to do great things for you too. Remember that he is the resurrection and the life. And all authority in heaven and on earth has been given to him. Thank him for your miracle this day. Jesus said, “When you pray, believe that you have received what you have asked for in prayer and it will be yours.” So believe and see your miracle come true.

Show me your ways, Yahweh. Teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth, and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation, I wait for you all day long. (Psalm 25:4-5)

At every stage of our life, we need guidance and as Christians, the Bible is our guide and it shows us the path of how to live a good Christian life and how to live a strong Christian life. Here in Psalm 25, we see David praying to the Lord for guidance. He prays, “Show me your ways, Yahweh. Teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth, and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation. As a shepherd boy, he might not have needed a lot of guidance from God, but as the king of Israel, ruling over a nation and having thousands and thousands of subjects under him, he would definitely have needed guidance from God. That’s why he earnestly prays to God for guidance and each one of us needs guidance of how to live our Christian lives. The wonderful thing about being a child of God is that God has given us his Holy Spirit to guide us into all the truth. Jesus said, “When the spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth.”

Sometimes we can be as Saul of Tarsus who was very zealous about the law and he thought that everything that he was doing was correct. He was persecuting Christians, he was putting them into prisons, and he was also siding with the people who were killing Christians. Later on when he writes his letters, he says that he was doing all these with a clear conscience. Of course, sometimes we can do many things thinking that we are doing the right thing, but unless we know what God’s Word requires from our lives, we may be doing things like Saul. And God had to deal with Saul and he had to break his pride and all that he was living for and show him the right path. Saul had an encounter with Jesus Christ and Jesus told him, "Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me? It’s hard to kick against the goads"

Saul was a transformed man because he had an encounter with Jesus Christ. He gave away all his old ways and he started preaching Christ and everyone was surprised. Here was someone who was persecuting the church of God and suddenly there was a great change. He was now preaching Christ and telling people that Jesus is the only way to eternal life.

In Psalm 25, David again sings,
Good and upright is Yahweh, therefore he will instruct sinners in the way. He will guide the humble in justice. He will teach the humble his way. (Psalm 25:8, 9)
We all need to pray to the Lord for guidance from his Holy Spirit. As we meditate on the Word of God each day, the Holy Spirit will guide us through the Word of God in doing the right things; things that are pleasing to God and walking in his ways.

As a Christian, we must have a teachable heart. Sometimes we may think that we know everything but it may be just worldly wisdom that is guiding our lives. If we pray to the Lord, the Lord will guide us with his Holy Spirit and grant us heavenly wisdom and we will start seeing things in a new light. So let us pray for guidance; let us pray for God to lead us by his Holy Spirit each day and this promise from Psalm 25 will come true in our lives too. He will guide us in what is right and teach us his way because all the ways of the Lord are loving and faithful to those who seek him. God will instruct you and me by his Holy Spirit through the Word of God so that we can live strong Christian lives and lives pleasing to God Almighty.​
