1 And the entire assembly of the sons of Israel proceeded to depart from the wilderness of Sin by stages, which they took according to the order of Jehovah, and went camping at Rephidim. But there was no water for the people to drink.
2 And the people fell to quarreling with Moses and saying: Give us water that we may drink. But Moses said to them: Why are you quarreling with me? Why do you keep putting Jehovah to the test?
3 And the people went on thirsting there for water, and the people kept murmuring against Moses and saying: Why is it that you have brought us up out of Egypt to put us and our sons and our livestock to death by thirst?
4 Finally Moses cried out to Jehovah, saying: What shall I do with this people? A little longer and they will stone me!
5 Then Jehovah said to Moses: Pass in front of the people and take with you some of the older men of Israel and your rod with which you struck the Nile River. Take it in your hand and you must walk on.
6 Look! I am standing before you there on the rock in Horeb. And you must strike on the rock, and water must come out of it, and the people must drink it. Subsequently Moses did so under the eyes of the older men of Israel.
7 So he called the name of the place Massah and Meribah, because of the quarreling of the sons of Israel and because of their putting Jehovah to the test, saying: Is Jehovah in our midst or not? (Exodus 17 NWT)
16 You must not put Jehovah your God to the test, the way you put him to the test at Massah. (Deuteronomy 6 NWT)
7 Jesus said to him: Again it is written, 'You must not put the Lord your God to the test.' (Matthew 4 NWT)
22 But all the men who have been seeing my glory and my signs that I have performed in Egypt and in the wilderness and yet kept testing me these 10 times, and have not listened to my voice, (Numbers 14 NWT)
1 And the sons of Israel [sons of the JAC], the entire assembly [the congregation of Laodicea and the LWs], proceeded to come into the wilderness of Zin [flat] [no administration yet] in the first month , and the people took up dwelling in Kadesh [holy]. It was there that Miriam died and there that she was buried [Miriam is the 3EC] .
2 Now there did not proved to be waters [Hebrew plural] for the assembly [no 4EC water baptisms after 2011Adar10, the end of the 2nd presence. Waters are sons of two waters, sons of both the 3EC and the 4EC. They ceased to be born after 2011Shebat10], and they began to congregate themselves against Moses [The 2NC administration of Laodicea, a few also against the LW administration] and Aaron [1NC reserves in Laodicea].
3 And the people went quarrelling with Moses and saying: If only we had expired when our brothers expired before Jehovah! [Physically died whilst a JW]
4 And why have you men [saints] brought Jehovah's congregation into this wilderness [Laodicea or the LWs, not much administrative structure - flat] for us and our beasts of burden [unsanctified ones] to die there?
5 And why have you conducted us up from Egypt to bring us into this evil place? It is no place of seed and fig and vine and pomegranate [4x. Figs and pomegranates and grapes are full of seed, 2013Shebat1 to 2017Elul13], and there is no waters [Hebrew plural] to drink [no water in the LW water baptism and 3x of no Laodicean water whilst a true church from 2011Adar10 - 2013Shebat1. The LWs have a dry water baptism. We baptise 'in water' by the laying on of the hands].
6 Then Moses and Aaron came from before the congregation to the entrance of the tent of meeting and fell upon their faces, and Jehovah's glory began to appear to them.
7 Then Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying:
8 Take the rod [authority of FDS4] and call the assembly together, you and Aaron your brother [the 1NC reserves in the LWs], and you must speak to the rock [The Impervious Fossilized Watchtower. Hard of heart and hard o hearing hearing and blind] before their eyes [actually announcing the 10 plagues] that it may indeed give its waters [Hebrew plural] [actually by splitting the rock, the Watchtower, in two. Dividing them into those who are passed over in the LWs and those who are not in the JWs]; and you must bring out waters [Hebrew plural] for them from the rock [The fossilized, calcified, arthritic impervious Watchtower] and you must give-drink to the assembly [of LW saints] and their beasts of burden [unsanctified LWs. They drink but are not said to drink water. They get a dry water baptism].
9 So Moses took the rod from before Jehovah, just as he had commanded him.
10 After that Moses and Aaron called the congregation together unto faces of the rock, and he proceeded to say to them: Hear, now, you rebels! Is it from this rock that we shall bring out waters [Hebrew plural] for you? [In the literal account NO, God did it. Moses just hit the rock with a stick. So in the greater meaning YES, the fire signs do bring out the waters]
11 With that Moses lifted his hand up [from the start of the presence, when Aaron arrives in the church, from 2017Elul10-12 to 2017Shebat7] and struck the rock with his rod twice [2 fire signs or saving ex JWs at two Passover strikes upon the 1NC reserves and firstborn by 3EC baptism in the Bethels on 2017Elul14 and in the congregations on 2017Tishri14 - the 3rd strike is on the prisons of the congregations, those trapped in a disassociated or disfellowshipped state on 2017Heshvan14] and much waters [Hebrew plural] began to come out [on 2017Elul1 for Laodicea, when their wall falls down and on 2017Elul7, when the wall of the Watchtower falls down, and on 2017Tishri24, when the Watchtower is overturned. The 1NC reserves leave the Watchtower and start baptising each other by immersing their feet in literal water in accordance with Jesus' Passover example], and the assembly and their beasts of burden began to drink [not said to be waters. This is the wine of the salvation cups at the Passovers].
12 And Jehovah said to Moses [the 2NCs who are all ascended by 2017Shebat7] and Aaron [the 1NC reserves who die sacrificially by 2018Tammuz14]: Because ye did not show faith in me to sanctify me before the eyes of the sons of Israel, therefore you will not bring this congregation into the land that I shall certainly give them [No, the descended 1NC Kings will bring Zoar into the Kingdom of God on 2017Heshvan16/21. FDS4 gives up its authority over the 4EC and CRC priests on 2017Sehbat7, the late 5th marriage Pentecost (the heavenly baptized 2NC saints are all at the top of Jacob's ladder by then). This page was first put on 2011Sivan21. The scripture cannot be understood to be about a future sin for LW researchers or the holy spirit is forcing us either to sin or to invalidate a scripture which makes God into a liar - neither can be the case]
13 These are the waters [Hebrew plural] of Meribah [contention], because the sons of Israel quarrelled with Jehovah, so that he was sanctified among them [if only we had done this sooner!].(Numbers 20)
Waters (7), Rock (4). So water is literal-metonymical but rock is metaphorical meaning essentially Jesus, more precisely the 1NC reserves in the Watchtower.
Just as a few members of the 3rd Holy Spirit imported into it the 40 year wilderness penalty, so actually the contest watching 2NC saints who sat on the fence rather than helping with the work of the LWs in sanctifying God through the web publishing of our research, cause all the sons of the 2NC to suffer the penalty of not leading God's people into the promised land of the Kingdom of God on 2018Heshvan16/21. But we do actually run the kingdom after it has started. Moses was not actually prohibited by Numbers 20 from entering into the land himself. Although he of course died on 1473Adar1.
So it is the contest watcher 2NCs, the two opinion limpers, the silent hiding prophets of Jehovah and the prophets of Baal who bring this 'no leading into the Kingdom penalty' upon FDS4. Not the contest organizers who are following the instructions of Jehovah to test his people. These contest watchers do not think that God can provide any JW waters to the LWs. They think Baal is stronger than Jehovah.
15 People light a lamp and set it, not under the
grain-measuring-bucket, but upon the lampstand,
and it shines upon all those in the house.
16 Likewise let your light shine before men, that they may see your fine works and give glory to your Father who is in the heavens (Matthew 5).
10 And Jehovah spoke to the fish, and it vomited Jonah out onto the dry land (Jonah 2 - GLT)
16 As for you, lift up your rod and stretch your hand out over the sea and split it apart, that the sons of Israel may go through the midst of the sea on dry land (Exodus 14)
