Hank Hanegraaff, the host of the 𝘉𝘪𝘣𝘭𝘦 𝘈𝘯𝘴𝘸𝘦𝘳 𝘔𝘢𝘯 broadcast and the 𝘏𝘢𝘯𝘬 𝘜𝘯𝘱𝘭𝘶𝘨𝘨𝘦𝘥 podcast, continues his teaching on fasting. The most exceptional fasting account in the whole of the Old Testament took place at the time of the Exodus. Not an ordinary fast. An extraordinary one. A fast from food and water for forty days and forty nights. And not just once, but on three separate occasions and over a relatively short period of time. A total of 120 days and nights without food and water! Even more amazing is that the one fasting was already in his eightieth year of life. The account is that of Moses, who climbed up to the top of Mount Sinai and was absorbed into the cloud of God’s glory. There he experienced God as the archetypal source of life and living. On the mountaintop, Moses was permitted to know experientially that “man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord.” He was not kept alive by bread and water, but by being interpenetrated by uncreated energy. A life-source not physical but manifestly divine in origin. Had Moses not participated in the divine nature, he would most certainly have died. Humans can abstain from food for forty days but not from water. Within a weeks’ time, death becomes unavoidable. Yet Moses did not die. Nor did he grow weary. After forty days and forty nights without food and water, he traversed Mount Sinai from its top all the way to its bottom and watched in horror as the people of Israel, engorged on food and drink, worshiped the golden calf. With supernatural energy he ground the detestable idol into dust and then fell prostrate before the Lord for yet another forty days and forty nights during which he “ate no bread and drank no water.” On top of all of that, Moses ascended Mount Sinai, fasting yet again for forty days and forty nights. When he came down from Mount Sinai, his face quite literally glowed with the glory of the Lord. The apostle Paul wrote, “We all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.”
