The Book of Numbers

And, They’re Off!

Numbers 10:11-36 – Israel moves out on God’s time table fully organized and prepared for the journey.  The journey will be hard, but failure is not an option.  This message explores just what resources they had which make success a possibility. (Power Point)

Charge!

Numbers 10:1-10 – Hearing a Bugle blow Charge! or taps or reverie evokes a stirring of certain emotions and is a call to action.  God used trumpets in the same way in Numbers 10 and it is uncanny how God’s angels use trumpets to blow similar themes in the end times.  (Power Point)

Beware of Passing Over the Passover

Numbers 9:1-14 – Moses receives additional instructions for a “make up” Passover for those who couldn’t participate the first time, as well as clarification for Gentile participation.  These additional instructions are not given however until Israel is first reminded to keep the Passover.  Why the reminder?  Israel had already been told to keep the…

Squeaky Clean

Numbers 8:1-26 – There were several “offerings” in the Old Testament.  There were sin offerings, burnt offerings, peace offerings, and wave offerings.  What was a wave offering?  In this message we illustrate the wave offering and see how it applies to actual lives and careers and the Christian.  (Power Point)

The Lord Bless You

Numbers 6:22-27 – If you have ever heard the expression, “The Lord Bless you and keep you…,”  this message explores its origin from Numbers 6:22-27.  It is the blessing the Lord commanded the priests to pronounce on Israel.  We wrap the message up by showing how it actually also has a Christmas application and can be heard again at Christmas. …

Spring Cleaning

Numbers 5 – Those with leprosy, a discharge, or who have come in contact with a dead body are asked to camp outside the camp proper.  Seems a little harsh doesn’t it?  What is going on here?  There are also instructions given about making restitution for wrongs.  In this message we look for the common denominator and come away instructed about certain…

Many Hands for Heavy Work

Numbers 4 – This chapter further defines the role of the Levites and particularly the roles of each of the three clans  while moving the tabernacle from place to place.  Each young man within the tribe of Levi was given a very specific task to do.  It again seems to parallel how each NT believer is given a gift and distinct role while serving as  the body of…
