Numbers Chapter 17
2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and take of every one of them a rod according to the house of their fathers, of all their princes according to the house of their fathers twelve rods: write thou every man's name upon his rod.
6 And Moses spake unto the children of Israel, and every one of their princes gave him a rod apiece, for each prince one, according to their fathers' houses, even twelve rods: and the rod of Aaron was among their rods.
8 And it came to pass, that on the morrow Moses went into the tabernacle of witness; and, behold, the rod of Aaron for the house of Levi was budded, and brought forth buds, and bloomed blossoms, and yielded almonds.

"...fairly minor offenses"--Seriously? !!! If you think ANY offense against God is a minor matter, you have not even begun to understand the absolute perfection and holiness of God. The people being punished here are those who fomented rebellion against the leaders God Himself appointed. They are dissidents, anarchists, usurpers, and rabble-rousers against God's holy law.

If one man sins against another, the judge shall judge him; but if a man sins against the LORD, who shall entreat for him? 1 Samuel 2:25, In the wilderness journey they always rebelled against God, tempted God, provoked God, Grieved God. These were not some fairly minor offences! But as we are in this Grace period, we ought to believe the Holy Scriptures, and walk accordingly. Believe in Jesus, take water baptism and receive Holy Spirit, and be ready for the soon return of Jesus Christ our Lord.
