KJV Exodus 3:

10, Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt. ... 17, And I have said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt unto the land of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, unto a land flowing with milk and honey.

Based on the fact that Moses died in the wilderness and could not take the children of Israel into the Promised Land, there has been different interpretations as to whether he fulfilled his calling/ministry or not. I am of the opinion that even though he did not enter into the Promised Land, his ministry was fulfilled. I want to know if I'm thinking in the right direction or not. Did Moses fulfill his ministry?

  • I am not sure Moses fulfilled his ministry because he couldn't step his feet on the Promised Land. – Ernest Abinokhauno Nov 21 '18 at 20:40

Yes he did; but he had to be punished for is anger with his people and not obeying God at Meribah:-

NWT Numbers 20:12, 13 "Jehovah later said to Moses and Aaron: “Because you did not show faith in me and sanctify me before the eyes of the people of Israel, you will not bring this congregation into the land that I will give them.” 13 These are the waters of Meribah, where the Israelites quarreled with Jehovah, so that he was sanctified among them."

As he was leader of the nation he set a bad example which he had to pay for, but otherwise he was a good man:-

NWT Numbers 12:3 "Now the man Moses was by far the meekest of all the men on the face of the earth."

and God showed that even though Moses made a mistake God was still going to use him, so we all have a chance dispite our short comings.

NWT Hebrews 3:5 "Now Moses was faithful as an attendant in all the house of that One . . ."
