So steph is asking, is it possible that the Bible may know secretly the burial site of Moses?

Speaker 2

Well, steph, that’s a great question when it comes to when you’re saying the Bible secretly knows. The Bible tells us kind of a general area, which I’ll show you in just a second, but God definitely knows where he was buried, but I’m sure you already know that as well. Well, just to kind of answer your question in a biblical sense, let’s go to the first verse in deuteronomy chapter 34 and verses five and six. And this is where the Bible says basically that Moses would have been buried, but it’s not very specific and the Bible is kind of interesting in not specifying exactly that burial site. So again, deuteronomy chapter 34 and verses five and six. And it reads, so Moses the servant of the Lord, died there in the land of moab according to the word of the Lord, and he buried him in a valley in the land of moab over against belf pier, but no man knows of his sepulcher until this day. So the Bible actually says that nobody knows where the grave is or of Moses where he was buried. But the thing about that is I think God did that for a reason.

Speaker 2

One, because he didn’t want people worshiping that place that he was buried. And two, Moses was resurrected after he died and was buried. And I believe that this happened because Moses is kind of a symbol of those who would die in Christ but would be resurrected at the final day. And we know that Moses was resurrected based on two verses. The first is the Book of jude, chapter one, verse nine, which says that speaking of Michael the archangel, who long Bible story, but basically Michael being another name for Jesus, jesus is not an angel. Jesus is God. He is just the ark or the head of the angel. So jude one nine says, yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil, he disputed about the body of Moses. And it reads, when he disputed about the body of Moses, dared not bring against him a reviling accusation, but said the Lord rebuke you. So Jesus did not bring an accusation against Moses, even though Moses did sin and that’s why he wasn’t allowed to go into the physical promised land. But God had a plan for him and he was going to give him a better promise land, which was that Moses was actually going to go into heaven itself, which is the true promised land, which is what that land represented.

Speaker 2

And we know that he’s in heaven now because of what we saw when Jesus came to earth and he was on the Mount of transfiguration, which you know is in Matthew 17 and verse three, basically, where it says and behold, there appeared unto them in the previous verse, you know that Jesus was transfigured before him and his face shown as a sign in his roommate, as white as the light in verse three. And beholder, appeared into the Moses and the elias, which is elijah talking with him. So we know that Moses is not in the grave anymore. He’s in heaven. He was resurrected and translated up to heaven to be in the true Promised Land with God. Because he was so close to God, he was God’s friend. And so I hope that answers your question. No. The Bible doesn’t say where he was buried. But we know that where he is now, which is up in heaven. His body is not here on earth. He was translated. Any other thoughts? jared wendy. Thank you.
