Analytical Essay: Aaron The Mountain Of Strength

Improved Essays
Aaron the Mountain of Strength
He was the son of Amram & Jochebed, but he was most known for being the eldest brother of the Egyptian prince, Moses. Aaron was a powerful speaker; his name rightly fit him as a mountain of strength, or teacher in some interpretations; Aaron was both. Even though Moses got the credit for freeing the Hebrews from bondage, Aaron was actually the spokesman during the rescue of God’s chosen people. Aaron was a godly man who became a high priest but like all, faltered and fell short of the glory of God .
Aaron was of the tribe of Levi, which was the tribe of the worshipers. His mother, whose name means, Jehovah is her glory, was a descendent of Levi as well as her husband Amram (whose name means exalted people). Aaron also had an older sister named Mariam who offered to take care of Moses when the Princess found him floating down the river. Because Moses was the prince of Egypt and Aaron was a slave, there was more than likely a little jealousy between the two. This and the fact that not many people had any faith left in their God, made Aaron’s decision to trust God

His failures were the most important thing to look at because even though he was a priest, it was his sins that kept him for the promised land. A verse to describe his life would be Isaiah 1:28 But rebels and sinners will both be broken, and those who forsake the Lord will perish. This is because Aaron's life is a representation of our walk with God, it shows us that no matter how many good things we do or how good we are, that one sin that everyone has will keep us from Heaven just like Aaron's lack of faith kept him from the land flowing with milk and honey. But what we must remember and what we must realize from Isaiah 1:28 is that when we are kept from Heaven we aren't just not allowed in, but we receive death instead, just like

    In Simon’s journal she discussed how rules cannot change because people want to refrain from the truth. In “The Ones Who Walked Away from Omelas” no matter how angry they get about the child they still understand why it exist. The child strongly represents Christ, but what if its God that walked and not the non-believers as mentioned earlier. God knew that his son was going to die when he sent him to. The ones that walked away could be God’s wrath on sinful humanity “The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them”(Romans 1 18-19).…

    The Pharisees teach us about how we are ready to point out the flaws of others, but Matthew 7:3 it says "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?” It’s say to not worry about other people’s flaws but to worry about our own flaws. This is an important lesson that we all need to follow; No one has the right of judgement apart from God.…

    In this quote Dimmesdale wishes that there was at least one person in the town that could acknowledge his sin so he does not live a false life. The next quote defines how he struggles with the acknowledgement of his sin and his desire for penance because of it. He knows his actions are unacceptable to God and he fears this represents his lack of salvation. To prove he still has devotion to God, he fasts until he faints and whips himself on the shoulders until he bleeds. Unfortunately however, it does not help Dimmesdale because he is still hiding his crime and is not receiving any public recognition at all for it.…

    From being the inventor of the great pyramids of what made Egypt so recognizable as a civilization today, to being the father of medicine that possibly saved Egypt from dying out of disease, to becoming a god from a common man and everything in between, it is clearly shown that Imhotep is one of the most important Egyptians alive. Without his contribution to Egyptian architecture, there wouldn’t have been such an advancement in how they built tombs; there wouldn’t have been a way for pharaoh’s to display their power, and there wouldn 't have been anyway for egypt to leave behind such powerful, physical landmarks of their great existence. Without his contribution to the study of medicine, then his whole civilization would’ve gone extinct a lot faster, since there wouldn’t have been diagnoses and cures for those diseases in time. Finally, without his turning into a god himself, then he wouldn 't have been regarded as Egypt as the greatest Egyption, since he has surpassed the power of a Pharaoh by becoming a god; deity’s the Egyptians admired most. When famous people give birth to offspring, their friends and family’s will usually think and tell each other that they hope the child can live up to their parent’s legacy.…

    If you look closer, even though it was Jesus’ plan, they are all alone and everything was against them. In our life, do not be afraid if you cannot see God with you in times of darkest because what if, it’s still God’s plan after all? In the gospel, Jesus’ brilliant plan was to test the faith of the disciples and exposed their true hearts but you can see that after he dismissed the disciples, He went up the mountain to pray. The meaning of that is before his disciples where even tested, Jesus already prayed for them, interceding for the disciples’…

    Of course, no one except his God sees his penance, yet Dimmesdale hopes his suffering will count toward something. No one was aware of the minister’s crimes, so they remained unpunished. Dimmesdale felt the only way to resolve his crimes was by repentance and absolution. Therefore, he punished himself to show how regretful he was for having sinned and express his desire to be forgiven. Dimmesdale yearns to find a reason to forgive himself, but being familiar with what is considered moral and ethical, he found it difficult to excuse his actions when he knew the sinfulness of his affair and hypocrisy; thus, attaining purification seemed impossible to him.…

    Luther always felt as he was never good enough, no matter how hard he tried and no matter what he did, he always felt that God was mad at him. After reading Paul’s word, he had a conversion experience and he was convicted that people are saved by “faith alone’ and not by any good work or pious work, (Wolf, 154). Luther trusted in the scripture and that gave him courage and that alone, helped him walk the road of reformation. Luther wrote the Address to the German Nobility, and that challenged the authority of the Roman pope and the status of the clergy in general, (Wolf, 154). He also wrote The Babylonian Captivity of the Church, which stated that good works unjustified Scripture, (Wolfe 154).…

    This type of person can be one of the most detrimental people one can encounter, because many times one does not recognize this characteristic in a person until something happens to reveal this person's true self. I believe this person is one most despised by God, because He sees the intent of their heart and it makes Him sick how they take advantage of God’s people. In the end, Mr. By-Ends would not forsake his principles to join Christian in the right way because Mr.By-Ends principles were those that would be profitable to himself. Christians must constantly check themselves to understand the intentions of their own heart and pray to protect themselves from pride and the love of money, which led to Mr. By-Ends…

    Essay On Total Depravity

    Due to the fact that we have lived our lives consistently surrounded with sin, it is extremely difficult to fully resist sin. In the same way Jesus was fully human and lived a sinless life, it is possible for us to live a sinless life. This is a beautiful thing because, by God’s grace, every time one is tempted to sin, God provides a way to run from that sin. With this knowledge, I believe we, as Christians, should strive to be blameless in God’s sight. Because we have all sinned and fall short of the Glory of God, we have Jesus who is our substitution.…

    Remember God knows who side you are on. All of these, our weakness, our wickedness, our waywardness and our warfare against God add up to a formidable barrier between us and God. Even if we wanted to come to God and be reconciled, and the evidence suggests we didn’t, this barrier was just too difficult to overcome. Thanks are due to God for Jesus who saw our pitiful condition and set about to rescue us. Then let us notice that Jesus showed his peerless…
