Moses was a prophetic prefigure of the reality
The Israelites won the battle at Rephidim as Moses held up his arms.
This was a prophecy that God’s people would win the spiritual battle against Satan as Jesus was lifted up on the cross.
When the Israelites were bitten by venomous snakes and many of them died, God said, “Make a snake and put it up on a pole;
anyone who is bitten can look at it and live.” However, they forgot the power of God’s words that saved them and worshiped the bronze snake for over 800 years.
As a result, they were all destroyed.
This was a shadow showing that people today would be destroyed by worshiping the cross,
forgetting the new covenant which Christ established through His sacrifice.
It is not God’s will that we set up crosses. To the early Christians, the cross was nothing but a cursed tree where Jesus was crucified.
“Cursed is the man who carves an image or casts an idol—a thing detestable to the LORD, the work of the craftsman's hands—and sets it up in secret.” Then all the people shall say, “Amen!” Deuteronomy 27:15
