Who led the children of Israelites to the Promised Land?


Many today do not know who lead the children of Israel to the promise land because of false thought and lack of thorough research.

This article explains how Moses lead the children of Israelite and who led them to the Promised Land.

After the long story of the 10 plagues and the Pharaoh’s opposition; Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt.

Let see the Bible account and see briefly was things was with Moses and the Israelite when they were still on the run leaving the land of Egypt.

{Exodus 14:1-13 KJV} “And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying. Speak unto the children of Israel that they turn and encamp before Pihahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, over against Baalzephon: before it shall ye encamp by the sea.

For Pharaoh will say of the children of Israel, They are entangled in the land, the wilderness hath shut them in.

And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart that he shall follow after them; and I will be honoured upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host; that the Egyptians may know that I am the Lord. And they did so.

And it was told the king of Egypt that the people fled: and the heart of Pharaoh and of his servants was turned against the people, and they said, why have we done this, that we have let Israel go from serving us?

And he made ready his chariot, and took his people with him:  And he took six hundred chosen chariots, and all the chariots of Egypt, and captains over every one of them.

And the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh King of Egypt, and he pursued after the children of Israel: and the children of Israel went out with and high hand.

But the Egyptians pursued after them, all the horses and chariots of Pharaoh, and his horsemen, and his army, and overtook them encamping by the sea, beside Pihahiroth, before Baalzephon.

And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians marched after them; and they were sore afraid: and the children of Israel cried out unto the Lord.

And they said unto Moses, because there were no graves in Egypt, hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness? Wherefore hast thou dealt thus with us, to carry us forth out of Egypt?

Is not this the word that we did tell thee in Egypt, saying, let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians? For it had been better for us to serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the wilderness.

And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you today: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen today, ye shall see them again no more forever.

Moses led them through the Red Sea on dry ground by the power of the God. That was just the beginning of Moses courageous leadership.

The work God asked Moses to do was full of challenges. Moses never hid his emotions and questions from God. According {Exodus 31:18} “they spent 40 days together on top of Mount Sinai and God gave Moses “…the two tablets of the covenant law, the tablets of stone inscribed by the finger of God”

Meanwhile, the people got tired of waiting for Moses, made an idol, and started worshiping it. This made God angry, and He offered to kill them all, making Moses into a great nation instead.

Moses ask God to forgive the Israelite as seen in the account of Exodus 32:11 (KJV).

“And Moses besought the Lord his God, and said, Lord, why doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people, which thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand?”

In response to Moses’ request to see God’s glory, he saw parts of God no one ever had before. { Read Exodus 34:6-7 KJV}.

Moses messed up, due to his anger, which disallowed him from entering the p

Promised Land and that leads to death {Read Deuteronomy 34:1-8 KJV}.

Who led the children of Israel after the death of Moses?

After Moses died, God chose Joshua, son of Nun, to lead the Israelites into the Promised Land and he was the personally appointed successor to Moses.

Below is what we have in the account of {Deuteronomy 31:1–8 KJV}, “Now after the death of Moses the servant of the Lord it came to pass, that the Lord spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ minister, saying,

Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel.

Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses.

From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast.

There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee”
