Numbers (Program #23) – Fighting (4)

Numbers is a book that records many wonderful items related to God’s people Israel and their journey through the wilderness on their way to the good land.  But it also records some of their greatest failures.  Perhaps the greatest among these was that spoken of in chapter 25 where many among Israel committed fornication and adultery with some of the idolatrous and pagan people dwelling in the land.  This brought in God’s judgment as seen by the plague that fell upon Israel consuming 24,000.  But this judgment served as kind of purifying of the people and it enabled them eventually to go in and possess the land that they have been 40 years journeying toward.  The renumbering of God’s people for the possession of the good land is our topic today.

Exodus (Program #165) – The Principle of the Golden Calf Idol – Moses’ Petition for the Idolatrous People, Jehovah’s Word

In one of the truly remarkable passages in the Bible, the very God and Creator of the universe is provoked beyond His patience by the idolatry of His people Israel.  In His anger He vowed to destroy them but in the midst of His righteous and holy indignation, He is persuaded not only to spare them but even to repent of His justifiable plan.  What is it or who is it that can change God’s mind?
