“The Noise Of War”

Key Verse

“And when Joshua heard the noise of the people as they shouted, he said unto Moses, There is a noise of war in the camp.” Exodus 32:17

Text — Exodus 32:11-19


The children of Israel were waiting for Moses who went to mount Sinai to receive the Ten Commandments from the Lord. While waiting, they asked Aaron to make a golden image for them to worship because they were not sure if Moses would return from the mount. Moses and Joshua not knowing what was going on in the camp, heard the noise of the people and Joshua said unto Moses, “There is a noise of war in the camp.” The noise of war here represents disobedience and departure from God’s righteous standard. It was a show of shame on the part of Aaron their leader and the whole nation of Israel.

It is often said that actions have consequences. The action of the children of Israel led to their destruction. They forsook God and served idols because their leader Moses was not around. The lesson here for you is that don’t forsake God even when your parents or teachers are not there to correct you. Know that God is watching you and you will give account of your actions to Him someday. Fear God and obey His word.
