The Book of Numbers

Clear Enough?

Numbers 17:1-13 – An age old question many people struggle with goes something like this:  with all of the competing ideas and religions in the world, how do I know who to believe?  If I think I know the right answer, how can I be sure?  Fortunately God has not left it up to us to find Him and figure Him out!  He is not this elusive mystery.  God knows we couldn’t…

Absolutely Incredible

Numbers 16:41-50 –  What is incredible about this passage is that a group of sinners could watch 250 of their own renowned leaders get fried, Korah and his rebellious followers get swallowed up by the earth and the next day, not learn a thing from it.   What is also incredible is that Moses and Aaron, showed such compassion and love for people who are attacking…

The Unity of the Saints

Numbers 16:1-40  – One of the important NT principles is the unity of the Saints.  James gives this warning: “Do not grumble against one another, brethren, lest you be condemned.

Flowing with Milk and Honey

Numbers 13:1-25 – How is it that we can all look at a picture and not always see the same thing?  How is it that we can all go through the same experiences and not always see the same thing?  12 spies went to Canaan and somehow didn’t see the same thing.  What did God want them to see?  What did God ask them to look for?  Come away from this message encouraged…

Sweet Relief

Numbers 12:1-16 – This time we find Miriam and Aaron, Moses’ sister and brother, complaining.  It is never a wise idea to criticize those whom God has ordained as leaders over us.  The beauty of this passage however, is in the restoration of Miriam after her repentance.  Repentance changes everything.  In this passage we explore God’s “reset”…
