Forty Years for Forty Days: the History of Akobe

Forty Years for Forty Days. 

The children of the Bantu had a defeating blow against them that changed much of their beginnings as a nation. As they prepared to seize the land of Canaan, they first had to spy it out. They organized twelve men to spy the land of Canaan and they would bring back the report.

Ten of the men reported that the land was good, that it flowed with milk and honey. However, simultaneously, those ten men also reported that the people in the land were too strong for the Creator and the Bantu to take down. They reported that the Anakims were there and the city was walled and would make it very difficult to break into.

Essentially, they complained that they would not be able to take the Canaanites down. As they spoke, Caleb the son of Jephunneh from the tribe of Juda (which is Yawada) spoke up. He calmed the men down of their negative report and told Moses that Israel could take the land. 

In fact, “Let’s go take it now!”

We’re Smaller Than Grasshoppers. The men with the negative report began to get even more negative in their inability to take the land. They were saying things like they were as grasshoppers to the Anakims. When the children of the Bantu heard the report by the ten men, they collectively cried and complained all night.

They complained to Moses that they wish they had remained in Egypt rather than to come out and deal with this murderous task of taking the land of Canaan. They complained even though the Great Spirit their Ruler had given them the land. The Creator was terribly upset at their lack of faith and would have destroyed them had it not been for Moses’ interceding, once again. 

Their murmuring and complaining did not go unnoticed and unpunished. It took them forty days to scour the land. The Great Spirit gave each day for a year; they would wander in the wilderness for forty years because of their evil report.

Wandering in the Wilderness

The first generation out of Egypt would die out before the Great Spirit would allow the Bantu the opportunity to take the land. When the children of Akobe heard the response from Moses that they would wander the land in the wilderness for forty years they repented. They also decided to zealously go up and take the land of Canaan right away.

Moses warned them to stand down because the Creator would not be with them! Nevertheless, they refused to listen and tried to take the land of Canaan and the land of the Amalekites by themselves. They were terribly defeated as a result.

In addition, the Creator decided to spread a disease on those ten men who gave the evil report. And as mentioned, the Great Spirit didn’t allow that generation (who did not believe) to enter into the Promised Land. Only Caleb and Joshua were allowed to see the promised land and to outlive that generation that rebelled.

Balaam and Cursing the Bantu

On top of this, the Bantu went through internal rebellions as well as the external ones. One of the external rebellions came from the king of Moab named Balak. He hired a priest named Balaam to put a curse on the children of the Bantu. It didn’t work because the Creator wouldn’t allow it, but he was successful to get the Bantu to stumble. He was able to do this by luring them with women and fornication. 

In the physical act of fornication, it also led to the spiritual act of fornicating with the deity Baalpeor. This was the Moabites deity and the Bantu went for it, which angered the Creator of the Bantu greatly. The Sovereign Ruler of the Bantu wanted the literal heads of all the princes that engaged in the acts of fornication with the Moabites deities and women.

Yes, this was extremely serious business.

Aaron’s grandson Phinehas took zealous vengeance for the Great Spirit and stopped the spread of a nasty plague the Great Creator sent among the children of the Bantu. Within this madness, Moses and Aaron finally were caught in the madness of the children of the Bantu.

In a fit of complaining, Moses and Aaron struck back and showed little honor and restraint towards the Creator. It was serious enough for the Creator not to allow them access to the land of Canaan. 

Aaron died and Moses only received the opportunity to take a glimpse into the land of promise. He did this from the mountain Nebo. Joshua, from the tribe of Efraim, was appointed as Moses successor, as he was groomed by Moses directly (this is important).

The Passing of the Great Moses

The last mission Moses accomplished before his death was to avenge the children of the Bantu of the Midianites. They warred and won, they killed the kings of Midian and even took down Balaam who caused the Bantu to sin prior, at the request of Moab’s king Balak.

The tribes, Reuben, Gad, and half of Manasse, came before Moses and requested to have the land east of the Jordan. It was granted to them, but they still had to go out and war with the rest of their brothers to capture all the land west of the Jordan. All the rules and order were set, and then Moses went the way of the ancestors
