The Mixed Multitude in Numbers 11
God’s calling is always an individual matter. However, if the church life becomes a movement, this will cause ones to come in among us who have never received such a calling. Such a “mixed multitude” can affect the entire church life in a very negative way and even cause the church life to fail.
The principle of the mixed multitude shows us why we should be careful about movements. A movement in the church life will bring in a mixed multitude. God’s calling to His people is individual. There is no movement or trend involved. But when something becomes a movement, a mixed multitude can come inÃ‚Â who never received a direct calling from the Lord.
