Moses was God’s appointed leader for God’s appointed time.
The book of Joshua begins with these words (1) “After the death of Moses the servant of the LORD…” Seventeen times Moses is called by this title. Moses has been the central figure from Exodus through Deuteronomy. Now God’s purpose for Moses was completed, Ecclesiastes 3:1. The word “season” means an appointed occasion. As there are seasons in nature there are seasons in life.
