LOOKING AWAY UNTO JESUS JESUS AND LIVE | And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, when anyone looketh upon it, shall live- Numbers 21:4-9

Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord, and against thee; pray unto the Lord, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people. And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived. – Numbers 21:4-9

Beloved, by the grace of God you have learnt some lifetime never to be forgotten lessons from this passage, when God sent fiery serpents to kill the children of Israel, because they sinned.

Please don’t be hard hearted like the children of Israel, because, God, the sovereign and unquestionable God can use anything to punish anyone and everyone, even today who refused His corrections from the errors of his or her way.

Micah 6:9 The Lord’s voice crieth unto the city, and the man of wisdom shall see thy name: hear ye the rod, and who hath appointed it.

Also you learnt from the same scriptures, how you can attain a way out of difficult challenges, if you will approach God humbly and pray the prayer of repentance, if you discovered sin or disobedience was what brought the challenge into your life, like the children of Israel prayed the prayer of repentance and they overcame the challenge of fiery serpents.

But then this time, you come to the Crux of the matter. See what the Bible says.

LOOKING AWAY UNTO JESUS JESUS AND LIVE | And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, when anyone looketh upon it, shall live- Numbers 21:4-9

2Ti 3:16 — 2Ti 3:17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

This scripture meant so much for believers of all ages and you in particular. See it yourself.

Num 21:7 — Num 21:9 Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord, and against thee; pray unto the Lord, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people. And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.

LOOKING AWAY UNTO JESUS JESUS AND LIVE | And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, when anyone looketh upon it, shall live- Numbers 21:4-9

 

The Bible from Genesis in the old testament to the book of Revelation in the new testament, reveals the person of our Lord Jesus Christ.

When you see those who profess religion and declined to harken to one instruction from the old testament, you must pity, such a person, because of the eternal consequences of what they are doing.

Jesus our Lord said, when anyone and everyone refuse one commandment either in the old or new testaments, the same word shall damn such a person. You shall not be damned in Jesus name . So give attention to the entirety of the word of God either in the old or new testaments. See this.

Jn 12:46 — Jn 12:48 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day

LOOKING AWAY UNTO JESUS JESUS AND LIVE | And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, when anyone looketh upon it, shall live- Numbers 21:4-9

In addition the Bible says if anyone and everyone shall remove one word of God either in the old or new testaments, because, such a person does not want to obey it. The Bible says, the name of that person, shall be removed from the book of life. See it yourself.

Rev 22:18 — Rev 22:19 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

If anyone and everyone:s name is removed from the book of life. The person is damned eternally.

Revelation 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

It is because of this, that the Bible says all scriptures, either in the old or new testaments are given by the inspiration of God. See it.

2Ti 3:16 — 2Ti 3:17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works

Beloved take for instance this word that our Lord Jesus Christ, used to defeat the devil , when He was tempted. See it. You will discover , He picked it from the old testament.

Matthew 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Deu 8:2 — Deu 8:3 And thou shalt remember all the way which the Lord thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no. And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the Lord doth man live.

Beloved, during the earthly ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ, He challenged the scribes and Pharisees, who rejected His person and ministry, to check the scriptures from the beginning to the end, that they testify of Him. See it.

John 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

I will quickly take you through the five books of Moses. Genesis to Deuteronomy, to affirm this. You will discover Him in the old and I will confirm Him in the new.

LOOKING AWAY UNTO JESUS JESUS AND LIVE | And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, when anyone looketh upon it, shall live- Numbers 21:4-9

1. Jesus in the book of Genesis. : The seed of the woman.

Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

Galatians 4:4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,

2. Jesus in the book of Exodus.: The Lamb without blemish slain for your redemption.

Exo 12:5 — Exo 12:7 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats: And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening. And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.

1Pe 1:18 — 1Pe 1:19 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:

3. Jesus in the book of Leviticus: The high Priest like Aaron.

Leviticus 8:12 And he poured of the anointing oil upon Aaron’s head, and anointed him, to sanctify him.

Lev 21:10 And he that is the high priest among his brethren, upon whose head the anointing oil was poured, and that is consecrated to put on the garments, shall not uncover his head, nor rend his clothes;

Heb 5:4 — Heb 5:5 And no man taketh this honour unto himself, but he that is called of God, as was Aaron. So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, to day have I begotten thee.

Heb 4:14 — Heb 4:16 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

4. Jesus in the book of Numbers: The Lifted Redeemer that provides you eternal life.

Num 21:7 — Num 21:9 Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord, and against thee; pray unto the Lord, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people. And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.

Jn 3:14 — Jn 3:15 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

5. Jesus in the book of Deuteronomy: The Prophet with Capital P, like unto Moses. The capital P, distinguished Him from every other prophets.

Deuteronomy 18:15 The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;

Deuteronomy 18:18. I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.

Act 3:19 — Act 3:23 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began. For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.

Acts 7:37 This is that Moses, which said unto the children of Israel, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear.

Beloved, praise God you have just celebrated this year’s Easter festival. If our Lord tarries in the mighty name of Jesus, with joy, happiness, enlargement, you shall celebrate the future ones .

But then, do you know the revelation of our Lord in the book of Numbers, is the reason and essence of Easter. See it yourself.

Jn 3:14 — Jn 3:15 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

Beloved, I agree with your testimony of your Christian profession. But have you really experienced eternal life, Jesus’s death on the cross provided for humanity?

John 10:11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

Jn 10:27 — Jn 10:28 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

LOOKING AWAY UNTO JESUS JESUS AND LIVE | And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, when anyone looketh upon it, shall live- Numbers 21:4-9

This eternal life is the guarantee you shall not perish. It makes you new and free from sin.

Why am I asking you this question? It is because of what we see globally, how Christianity has been bastardized.

How those who profess religion takes grace for licentious lifestyle.

Check up your life. If the eternal life, Jesus Christ procured for you on the cross, you shall be free from sin and become new creature.

Have you really experienced these in your life?

Your answer should be affirmative yes. But if not, go back to Calvary now, tomorrow might be too late. See what the Bible says.

LOOKING AWAY UNTO JESUS JESUS AND LIVE | And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, when anyone looketh upon it, shall live- Numbers 21:4-9

Tit 2:11 — Tit 2:12 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;

Rom 6:1 — Rom 6:2 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?

If you are still living in sin, if your lifestyle is full of little foxes and besetting sins. If you still lust for immorality and uncleanness. If you are still compromising and into secret sin. Go to the cross and receive biblical eternal life.

Ephesians 5:3 But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;

May the Lord help you in particular to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.

2 Timothy 3:15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
