his sacred ones

Deuteronomy 33:1-3 (JDV)

Deuteronomy 33:1 This is the empowerment that Moses, the man of God, empowered the Israelites with before his death.
Deuteronomy 33:2 He said: Yahveh came from Sinai and appeared to them from Seir; he shone on them from Mount Paran and came with ten thousand sacred ones, with lightning from his right hand for them.
Deuteronomy 33:3 Indeed he cares about the people. All your sacred ones are in your hand, and they assemble at your feet. Each receives your words.

his sacred ones

Who are these sacred ones of whom Moses speaks? Are they sacred angels, ready to do his bidding? Note the change in pronoun in verse 3. The sacred ones are in YOUR hand, and they assemble at YOUR feet. Who is the YOU to whom Moses is speaking? As part of his blessing to the Israelites, Moses encourages them to see that they are his army of sacred ones who can accomplish his mission. These Israelites and their children and grandchildren can get the job done if they only dared to try.

Believers in Christ are also his sacred ones. We, and those who come after us, are a mighty army equipped to accomplish his mission. We have his commands, and can get the job done if we only dare to try.

Lord, we dare to try. We accept your great commission, and are mustering your troops.
