Numbers (Program #11) – Journeying (1)

Both Romans and Galatians in the New Testament talk about being led by the Spirit.  It is safe to say that all serious Christians desires the Lord’s leading.  But to be led by the Spirit is not that easy because the Spirit is abstract even obscure to us at times.  Most often we find ourselves not really under His leading at all but wondering somewhat aimlessly trying to find Him.  There is a wonderful picture of being led by the Spirit that we can learn something from in the Old Testament book of Numbers.  It’s here that the Lord led His people Israel through the wilderness by means of being a visible cloud to them during the day and by being a cloud of fire at night.  We will see just what this cloud and fire mean to us as believers on our program today.

Acts (Program #58) – The Propagation in Asia Minor and Europe through the Ministry of Paul’s Company (24)

In Acts chapter 12, James and the other leading brothers in Jerusalem boasted to the apostle Paul’s saying “You observe, brother, how many thousands there are among the Jews who have believed; and all are zealous for the law.”  With tens of thousands believing it seems that truly it was much to boast of in Jerusalem but their boast reveal something else; a dangerous mixture existed in the first New Testament church.  Stay with us, as we explore the effects of this mixture on today’s life study of the Bible.

Numbers (Program #10) – Being Formed into an Army (11)

Inserted in the record of Numbers where Jehovah formed and set His army is the account of His divine provision for the people.  This was not the material provision of food and water.  That had already been accomplished.  This was the provision of two necessary items.  For the people to approach Him, God provided several different offerings.  But from God to His people, He provided the holy anointing oil.  A marvelous compound that was to be spread or painted to all of the holy utensils even onto the tabernacle itself.  This ointment is so rich in its symbolism yet it is nearly ignored completely by readers and even many ministers of God’s word.  We will spend the next half hour to see it, to appreciate it and by the Lord’s mercy even to experience it.

Numbers (Program #9) – Being Formed into an Army (10)

If you ask most people, they will tell you that God dwells in heavens.  Well, while this is surely the case, the Bible tells us again and again that He is the God of heaven and earth.  So while from eternity, He has dwelt in heavens.  The Bible reveals His goal even His desire is to dwell on earth with man.  Old Testament books like Exodus, Leviticus and Numbers give us a very sweet picture of His earthly dwelling place, which at that time was in the tabernacle.

Numbers (Program #8) – Being Formed into an Army (9)

Let me ask you.  How and with what does God bless His people?  A worldly song some years back that was actually mocking Christians said “God won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz?”  Well, may be we chuckled or perhaps we are little ashamed because those are often the kinds of blessing that we hope God sends us.  May be God’s blessing in our lives are associated with our families or our education or perhaps our career.  Well interestingly we can see the real and genuine blessing that God has for His people from the Old Testament book of Numbers.

In Acts chapter 20, the Apostle Paul was departing from the saints in Ephesus whom he loved dearly. He gave them a solemn warning saying, “I know that after my departure, fierce wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock, and from among you, yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverted things to draw away the disciples after them.”  Who were these wolves? What was their aim?  Stay with us for an extraordinary life study of the Bible.

Numbers (Program #7) – Being Formed into an Army (8)

Most Christians live with the realization that the Christian life shall be a life that is separated unto God or sanctified.  But the full understanding of just what this sanctification means is not so generally well-known.  Numbers chapter 6 in the Old Testament gives us a marvelous picture in the vow of the Nazarite, a voluntarily vow that can be made by anyone among God’s people that desire to give themselves to the Lord absolutely, utterly and ultimately.

We come again for the second day in this life study of Numbers to consider the Nazarite vow and what a marvelous picture presents to us of the kind of life and living that God is looking for among His people.
