    Moses’ Generalship

    We read of Moses’ generalship as follows: “I was pointed back to the children of Israel. Very soon after leaving Egypt they were organized and most thoroughly disciplined. God had in his special providence qualified Moses to stand at the head of the armies of Israel. He had been a mighty warrior to lead the armies of the Egyptians, and in generalship he could not be surpassed by any man.”-Gospel Workers (1892), 158.COOD 62.2

    The order established in the church under Moses seemed to proceed on the principle expressed by Paul to Titus: “For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting.” Titus 1:5. How comprehensive, and how specific the instruction-“the things that are wanting.” This is equivalent to saying, As you look over the situation you will see the needs of the work, and what is required for its successful management. Supply the demand by providing for what is wanting.COOD 62.3

    When the sanctuary, with its furniture, was constructed, it had to be set up, taken down, and removed from place to place. There must have been order in all this; for if left with no definite regulations, as though it was “everybody’s business,” soon it would have been “nobody’s business,” and confusion would have been the result.COOD 62.4
