1. These are the words which Moses spoke to all Israel on this side of the Jordan in the wilderness, in the plain opposite Suph, between Paran,    Tophel,          Laban, Hazeroth and Dizahab.
  2. It is eleven days’ journey from Horeb by way of Mount Seir to Kadesh Barnea.


Geographically, from Horeb, the mount of God, to Kadesh Barnea was ELEVEN DAYS JOURNET (II-DAYS).

Also, from Kadesh Barnea to Canaan itself was only TWO DAYS JOURNET (2-DAYS)

At Kadesh Barnea, during the Journey of the Israelites, the powers of failure at the edge of success attached the children of Israel, forcing them to fall back to where they started after they were very close to their land of possession.

Today, God is teaching the church a spiritual lesson on a place called Kadesh Barnea.

Kadesh Barnea was a transit point in the Pilgrimage of the children of Israel from Egypt to Canaan. It was a point where the Israelites sited to go forward but returned back to where they started just two days away from their possessions.

It is a negative turning point.



  1. “So we departed from Horeb, and went through that entire great and terrible wilderness which you saw on the way to the mountains of the Amorites, as the LORD our God had commanded us. Then we came to Kadesh Barnea.
  2. And I said to you, ‘You have come to the mountains of the Amorites, which the Lord our God is giving us.
  3. Look the Lord your God has set the land before you; go up and possess it, as the Lord God of your fathers has spoken to you; do not fear or be             discouraged.
  4. And every one of you came near to me and said, let us send men before us, and let them search out the land for us, and bring back word to us of the way           by which we should go up, and of the cities into which we shall come.

The children of God went through all manners of troubles in the wilderness before arriving at Kadesh Barnea.

They suffered snake bites, hunger, lack of water to drink. They went through great and terrible wilderness and finally arrived at Kadesh Barnea.                                                     Moses encouraged them to fear not and never to be discouraged. Instead, they suddenly became reluctant to continue their journey. Discouragement set in as a concrete block in their hearts. They despised what they have labored for and became discouraged to make further progress. Instead of completing what they have started, they informed Moses that they will remain at Kadesh Barnea and send spires to the Promised Land, who will bring them reports whether they should continue the journey or not. God wants us to learn a strong spiritual lesson from this ugly experience of the Israelites.

It is tragedy, after you have gone for on a project, you have gone far in your University career, even to graduation level, you have done everything for your wedding to take place, you have attended all the interviews and probably, you were told you will be the one to be employed, you have pursued a contract to the last point of your life, just to obtain a desired blessing, something strange just happened and brought everything to zero. That is tantamount to a strong attack called the spirit of Kadesh Barnea.


You must cry to God with all agony of your heart to God today:  I MUST NOT PERISH UNDER YOUR UMBRELLA.

EXODUS 13:21-22

  1. And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night.
  2. He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the people.

Despite the fact that they were been lead by the PILLAR OF A CLOUD by day and PILLAR OF FIRE by night. Yet, they did not follow the pillar of cloud and the pillar of fire. They were attacked by the spirit of WASTERS. The spirit of DESTINY DIVERTER entered them. Despite the powerful message from Moses, they refused to listen to him. They perished. A lot of them died in the wilderness. It is possible to be wasted right under the umbrella of God. It is possible to fail right under the canopy of God when you refuse to yield to spiritual instructions.
