I were to ask you: What Jewel would you be? Would you be a Saphire to bea ruing do be a dimond. What joould you be? Have you seen thosethess on social media? Maybe on face book or somewhere like that? If youwere an animal, what animal would you be?...

I started to develop one of those tesksfor jewels so that you can figure out what jewel you would be. But you knowwhat I found out out theum. We usually answer those tests in the way to get tothe Deel we want to be or the animal we want to be so have refrained from doit.But let me just ask you: what jewel would you be if you could be one? Whatwould you be thinking of such is certainly amusing,but ultimately none of us would want to be a jewel as beautiful as jewels are. They haveno personalities. Jewels have no relationships, theycan't experience other personalities. In essence, jewels are not living they're, notalive. Well, men have long pursued pricelessgyms. Their time would have been bettersbeenpursuing priceless relationship...

...such was. The wisdom of Moses were reading through the book of Exodus,where Reading Today axte is chapter thirty, two through thirty four and Iwante to read in a moment from exodus chapter, thirty, three versus onethrough three and then twelve thor. Seventeen an exodus of course starts with Mosesand God's Colum Moses, leading the people out of Israel, and we saw thetin plagues occure. Now we see them in the wilderness on their way to thepromised land. Andthis is the same wilderness where they ended upcommitting CN and God made em stay in this wildrness for forty years ofwonderings. But here we have the omen. Moses has gone up to the mountain tohear from Godand he's been gone for a...

...while and s the children of Israelcommit a horrible scan and we'll see the consequences of it. In today'sreading, exen is thirty three verse one then theLord spoke to Moses Depart go up from hearn you and the people whom youbrought up from the land of Egypt to the land of which I swore to AbrahamIsaac. Jacob saying to your descendants, I will giveIm. I will send an angel before him and I will drive out the Cato night.The Meri the hyptype perifid to Hivit te jetyside go up, Toiland Bong withmilk and honey, for I will not go up in your mids because you are an obstinate people and I might destroy you on the way now notice. First, twelve,...

...then Moses said to the Lord, see yousay to me: Bring this people up, but you yourself have not. Let me knowwhom you will seend with me. Moreover, you have said I have no, you by name. You've also found favor in my side. Now,therefore, I pray if I have found favor in your side. Letme know your ways that I may know so that I may find favor in yourself.Consider too that this nation is your people, and he said my presence shall go withyou and I will give you rets. Then he said to him. If your presencedoes not go with us, do not lead us up into the promised land from here.

For how, then, can it be known that Ihave found favor in your Sigdt? I and your people? Is it not by you goingwith this, so that we I angeur people may bedistinguish from all the other people you're on the face of the earth? The Lord said the Moses. I will do this thing of which you havespoken for you have found favor in my side,and I've known you by the children of Israel had seen greatly inthe sight of God, Moses absenced from them up on the mountain for days wasunsaid, they were afraid. Perhaps Mosus died,Ean God said not to come near that mout don't touch thebout. Well, T we've seen this powerand all got aflame a smoke.

We've seen this pillar this cloud, thisawesomeness, what? If Bosus as that it was unsettling, he had been going and there lat of tit. It was their lack of faith in atd, move them to desire a gold imagesimilar to the ones that they had seen in Egypt. In spite of the fact that God hadforbidden such they had seen Egypt, they had seen thegods in Egypt, they had seen the success of the Egyptians, and so they equated the gods of Egyptwith the success of the Agyptians, even though they had also seen theirGod destroy the Degyptian Army. Just like that. Neverthe way, tey thank back, and sothey want to create an image like the...

...one they had seen in Egypt, the AP oftheir she end of which thr they SEK is almost unimagined. In fact, they created a golden calf andthey worshipped this God with a sacred fease, which was intended to be reserved onlyfor the true God, and then they even committed sexualscense, as implied by the Hebrew Bersesix. They rose to play since desertion of the one. True Godwas punishable by death separation. God was to be sat, he couldn't be nINSEN. God has to absence his presence fromSEM, so he's not going with Thi Moses had intercended and stayed thehand of God from destroying them all.

Nevertheless, God said you'll go onwithout this is what you're going to do withyour life of faith, go on without ouse and an angel I'll drive out the evil,but oll o. He could not count on his children tobe Loyl to him. Thus he told Moses to go on without him,but Moses respose was God. If you're not going to go with USI,don't want to go to a land flowing with milk and HuntrEan they've been in the Wilderness, God says: Ha it's going into Parmaan!You go on I'l, rib out everyone there's going to be huge Grapes of escal honey,foling everywhere milk. I mean it's a very fertile Lan. It's prepared for you,it's ready for you, the last four...

...hundred years. I've worked in such away that that land is waiting for you. It's rich yeah got if you're not going to go withus. We might as well stay here in thisdesert. We might as well stay in thesewonderings rather than going into the PROMISMA. The response of God makes it even moreclear than Moses was saying: I don't go if you don't go with us, because God's response to Mosis was okay. o Moses was an essent saying. What makesthe promised man the promised land isn't the great SOESC. It isn't milk, it's not honey, it's notthe fertir land. What makes the promise land the promise land...

...is your presence and, if you're not going to be therewith us e migt as well just stay here. What incredible insight bimoses the presence of God is what makes itthe promiselen and if God doesn't go with them, they might as well not go. You know. The same is true of Heaven. WHAT MAKES HAVEN HEAVEN! Is it the jewels? It's not the golden streams, it's not the gates of Pearl. What makes Heaven Heaven the presence of God it's about a relationship not aboutjewels, not about go not even about honey or grapes. It's about arelationship, a relationship with Wi.

All the gold in the world is vain. Without someone to enjoy it with relationships or what's important, o'tever forgetthat do'll never pursume things rather than people pursue people pursue relationships. Their souls are wor far more than allthis world has to offer Jesus Sai that what las the profit, if a person gavesthe whole world but lose his own silk Jesus said: Listen your soul's worthand everything worth more than everything in the world. They'll everforget that relationships with people far worthmore than anything this world. As of but the greatest relationship,...

...that's worth far more than anything,including others is the relationship with life, the relationship with God, the one whomakes heaven have it the one who makes life life that's worth more than anything, andthat's a lesson that Moses learn. Truly, God is more precious than silver, more costly than go dnothing! Nothing.
