The Mystery of the Stinking Manna is the subject of this final chapter.
Let’s review one more time what at first looks like a verse in the bible with no particular point except the connection between the disobedience of the Jews and smelly bread. No one would ever have guessed that this short, seemingly unimportant bit of information is the key to understanding the disbursement and tragic pilgrimage of the wandering Jews for the past 1900 years.
And Moses said, Let no man leave of it till the morning.
Notwithstanding they hearkened not unto Moses; but some of them left of it until the morning, and it bred worms, and stank:
The Cross of Christ was meant to be an offense to the Unbelieving Jews. The Cross remains an offense to the unbelieving Jews to this very day. The story of the stinking manna found in the book of Exodus is a Prophecy that has now been fulfilled. The rejection of the Manna by the Jews because of the work of the worm and the rejection of the Messiah because of the work of the CROSS is a historical fact. It is a fact that was foreshadowed in the Book of Exodus thousands of years ago.
Yeshua said of Himself as recorded in Psalms 22:6
But I am a worm, and no man;
a reproach of men,
and despised of the people.
The LORD of Heaven identified His most royal and noble personage with a WORM in order that He might carry out His Redemptive plan for mankind. The Worm He identified Himself with was no ordinary Worm. It was a worm designed by God to reveal the seriousness of the sin of mankind. Sin so loathsome and horrific that it demanded a blood sacrifice in order to provide Atonement.
The Number Meaning of the Hebrew word Tolath sums it all up.
There will be a period of testing that will end during a divinely ordained period of time. At the end of this testing period, there will be deliverance and renewal. There will be new birth and eternal life provided for imperfect and sinful men. This deliverance will be provided by means of a Blood Sacrifice. Not just any blood sacrifice but the blood sacrifice of the Anointed One, the Messiah who is the only Son of God. It is the Son of God who will usher in a perfected divine order at just the right moment. That moment being preceded by His death and burial and punctuated by His resurrection from the dead. The news of this being heralded as the Gladdest Tidings ever heard by mankind.
The Messiah will experience death so that those that look upon His death and see upon that tree their savior will be saved eternally.
Those that view His death and mock in unbelief will find themselves under the curse and wrath of God. God has graciously provided this sacrifice in order that men might receive it and live and will not provide another way for mankind to be saved. Those that reject this way are in darkness and spiritual blindness.
1 Corinthians 1:18
For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
And now you know the Mystery of the Manna and the Worm!
