actually at the time it wasn't an idol. later on in 2 Kings 18:4 you
will read that it had become an idol and therefore Hezekiah had to
the reason it wasn't an idol when first used is spoken about in 1
Corinthians 10:11, which states:
"Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they are
written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come."
(other examples were the manna that fell from heaven, Aaron's rod, order
of the camp, and the water from the rock.)
Jesus explains to Nicodemus one night about this same thing:
"And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the
Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not
perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave
his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not
perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the
world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be
saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth
not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of
the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light
is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light,
because their deeds were evil."
there are many examples/types of Messianic prophecy throughout the Old
Testament and they were there to assist the people in understanding
God's plan of redemption for them.
in fact i believe if Moses had asked the water to spring from the rock
instead of striking it, he would have entered into the promised land.
by striking the rock he "broke" the type/example of Jesus providing the
living water by a person asking for Him to come into his life.
