Since the beginning of the new school year in September 2015, Rev Foster has been speaking at two morning assembly meetings each week. His theme for 2015-16 is DV, "Pictures of Christ in the Bible." Moses - the eighth picture of Christ His Meekness. "Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth," Numbers 12:3. This was very unusual for one with so much authority. He was a 'king', Deut 33:4-5. "Moses commanded us a law, even the inheritance of the congregation of Jacob. And he was king in Jeshurun, when the heads of the people and the tribes of Israel were gathered together." That he was like Christ may be seen from Matthew 11:28-30. "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.' Moses had learned of Christ. Meekness is not the spirit of the earth - sports men, politicians etc, boastful and self-promoting. But here is how it will end! "Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth," Matthew 5:5. "But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace," Psalms 37:11. Never forget that when the worldling is urging upon you a spirit of aggressive self-seeking. It is not Christ's way to victory.
