VIII. MAIN BODY:
A. Moses faithful as a servant in GOD's House
"And Moses certainly was faithful in the administration of all God’s house [but it was only] as a ministering servant."
Matthew 24:45 (Amplified Bible)
24:45 Who then is the faithful, thoughtful, and wise servant, whom his master has put in charge of his household to give to the others the food and supplies at the proper time?
Luke 12:42 (Amplified Bible)
12:42 And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful steward, the wise man whom his master will set over those in his household service to supply them their allowance of food at the appointed time?
Exodus 14:31 (Amplified Bible)
14:31 And Israel saw that great work which the Lord did against the Egyptians, and the people [reverently] feared the Lord and trusted in (relied on, remained steadfast to) the Lord and to His servant Moses.
Moses being compared to CHRIST, however, faithful he was in GOD's House in fulfilling His ministry, Moses did it as a servant, but CHRIST did it as a Son. The Son's faithfulness is far more superior to the faithfulness of a servant. Even more, CHRIST is both Faithful as a Son but ministered as a Servant.
John 13:14 (Amplified Bible)
13:14 If I then, your Lord and Teacher (Master), have washed your feet, you ought [it is your duty, you are under obligation, you owe it] to wash one another’s feet.
Matthew 10:24-25 (Amplified Bible)
10:24 A disciple is not above his teacher, nor is a servant or slave above his master.
10:25 It is sufficient for the disciple to be like his teacher, and the servant or slave like his master. If they have called the Master of the house Beelzebub [master of the dwelling], how much more will they speak evil of those of His household.
