This is a Blog for those interested in following hard after His heart. Those willing to strive to live a moment by moment life as we go through the transformation process with Him. It is not an easy life but the Father expects each of us to become an offering for His pleasure. So, if this is you, then let’s journey together hand in hand. I am humbled that you have chosen to walk with me. Thanks!

Study 15 From The Book of Numbers
is: Numbers 21. Conquest of the Amorite kings
1.Israel’s reaction to adversity
gets a little monotonous (verse 5), and it is easy to say, ‘why cannot they
learn to trust God?’ But are not we
often as unbelieving? Notice how Jesus uses this story (verses 6-9) as a ‘type’
in Jn. 3:14, 15. What parallels are there in the condition of the afflicted and
in the means of salvation in each case? Why a serpent on the pole? Cf. 2 Cor.
2.It is worth tracing Israel’s
journey on a map from 20:1 onwards. Notice how circuitous it was. What evidence is there, as against 20:2, 3
and 21:4, 5, that Israel was learning trust and obedience through discipline?
What discipline? Cf. Dt. 8:2.
