I attended this WE the meeting of an English speaking congregation, where they happened to have their CO, an American ex- bethelite with his French wife. He sounded quite sensible in his concluding prayer, saying that JWs are in search of the truth, in connection, I assumed, with the WT article of the day. That was the least he could say since, as I told him at the end of the meeting, we had seen three different definitions of the generation of the end within the last 13 years. He sighed and agreed.
On another topic, he mentioned in his talk Moses who was forbidden entrance into the promised land because he failed to recognize that his getting water shoot out of the crag was due to Jehovah's power, and he went on emphasizing how unwise it would be to be unfaithful now and therefore lose the reward as we are so close to the term, etc, etc. Checking into the Bible, I was impressed by the fact that Moses got irritated because the Israelites were whining and regretted Egypt and the text focuses on the Israelites' grumbling and their, rather than Moses', lack of faith (this to answer an explanation (not the WT's) which we find sometimes about Moses hitting the rock, out of doubt, twice instead of once) :
"So he called the name of the place Mas´sah and Mer´i·bah, because of the quarrelling of the sons of Israel and because of their putting Jehovah to the test, saying : "Is Jehovah in our midst or not?" "(Ex. 17 : 7)
"These are the waters of Mer´i·bah, because the sons of Israel quarrelled with Jehovah, so that he was sanctified among them" (Num. 20 : 13).
Poor old Moses definitely paid for the Israelites' fault : "And Jehovah got incensed at me on YOUR account" (Deut. 4 : 21), "they caused provocation at the waters of Mer´i·bah, so that it went badly with Moses by reason of them" (Ps. 106 :32). Too harsh a punishment on him, just because he lost his temper for a short while. There is a lot to learn, yet, about the circumstances of this event, which are far from being clear, and the way, which may look unfair at first sight, Jehovah dealt with Moses, and some other people in various instances, in the OT.
