The Book of Numbers sermon 13

In this week’s message, we will hear from Moses, how he prayed to protect the nation of Israel and how he prayed that they would be forgiven. We will learn that the word salach (?????), means forgive and is used only of God because truly, He is the only one who can forgive; after all, all sin is against God. So we must be very careful when we sin against our brother or our sister, because as we do unto others so we do unto the Lord. When we sin, God is really the offended One.
 

It is quite amazing to discover that another Hebrew word used for God’s forgiveness (in Numbers 14:18) has the meaning of “carrying and bearing”. It is the Hebrew word nasah (??????). This brings us to Isaiah 53:4, where the same Hebrew word is used for Yeshua, in His having borne our griefs, which is all part of God’s forgiveness.

And just as the sinner needed to lean on and transfer their sins to the animal, we too must lean on Yeshua and confess our sins, transferring the weight of the sin onto Him. He alone carries and bears our iniquities.

For You Lord are just and faithful to forgive: Your blood was shed for us and for our brothers and sisters in the Lord. Psalm 85:10 reads: “When God forgives, steadfast love and truth meet, righteousness and peace kiss each other.” What a beautiful outcome that holy kiss brings for us. Hear us o Lord and forgive us (salach lanu).

Blessings as you listen to the message with Messianic leader, Jacques Isaac Gabizon in the Book of Numbers, chapter 14. Shalom.

    The Book of Numbers sermon 12

    Moses told the spies to be of good courage. What does it mean to be of good courage? Courage springs from strong faith. Courage is required when our fears surface and we want to run in the opposite direction. Courage was shown when Esther walked into the kings court unannounced or when the spies would now need to go into the Land, unannounced. Moses asked them to be of good courage so that their faith could help them see, so that they could come back and then be an encouragement to the rest of the people waiting. Moses asked that they bring back evidence that the land was plentiful. But they were not of good courage for they did not walk by faith. What this event clearly shows us is that we cannot depend on sight alone. Even those magnificent grapes did not convince the Israelites. Only faith will plant seeds of courage which help us walk in the Lord’s direction. Lord, give us the faith to walk out of our comfort zones and into territories unannounced and unchartered, knowing that You will make our presence known so that we may become ministers of the reconciliation and make Your glory a great encouragement to others.

    The Book of Numbers sermon 11

    In this week's message, we are going to hear about name changes and in particular Joshua’s Hebrew name change. We may sometimes wonder if every letter and word in the Hebrew Scriptures is there for a reason…. whether in name change or in word change. Well, here is a good case for keeping things to the letter. There is a Hebrew word in Scripture which is epher; it means ashes. When we take one letter from that word and switch it around, we come up with another Hebrew word, pha-ar which means crown. With just a one letter change we have gone from ashes to wearing a stephanos. Because we are His segeluah, God’s treasured possession, He will take away our ashes of mourning and give us a crown of victory. You see, He wants to replace our rags for the garments of praise. He wants to replace our mourning, with the oil of gladness. He wants to replace beauty for our ashes. He is ever changing us into His image and likeness. And though we change we know that His word stands forever and will never alter in strength or in promise. This indeed is no miniscule matter. His power to change us caps our day off with a new hope to trust Him, for His outstanding character is seen in every letter He has written.

    The Book of Numbers sermon 10

    Some of us go a long way to find treasures when we have them so very close already. Manna was a treasure of bdellium and coriander. It was given in doses just enough so that the children of Israel would come to the Lord on a daily basis. But for many of us, the manna is not enough, so we go outside the camp seeking quail. But the children of Israel were plagued because of the quail. Our greed is a sickness. Greed can be like a plague…so let us receive what God gives us as sufficient. We are reminded in Proverbs 30:8-9 which says:
    Give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread. Otherwise, I may have too much and disown You and say, ‘Who is the Lord?’ Or I may become poor and steal, and so dishonor the name of my God.
    Thank You for the daily manna and thank You for the daily faith which helps us believe Your promises…so that we would not seek quail, but be assured that even the trials we go through is Your merciful manna in disguise.

    The Book of Numbers sermon 9

    The Israelites wanted to go back. They complained about the absence of leeks and onions that tantalized their taste buds. They complained about the loss of luxury they had back in Egypt. Yes, the children of Israel seemed to selectively choose to forget all that the Lord had done for them not long before that.

    In this week’s message we will hear about Moses who also complains… had he forgotten too? While Moses did complain to God, his complaints were founded on a fundamental

    truth. Moses was aware of his own shortcomings, his own inability to carry the nation. His complaint actually allows us all to see that only the Lord has the solution and the power to carry us. Only He can bear our sin. The law was given to expose our sin, but it could never vanquish it. Only Yeshua, our sin bearer, our Counselor, only He is wonderfully amazing and only He is the Prince who caries us in His perfect peace.

    We pray you will be blessed as you listen to the latest message with Messianic leader, Jacques Isaac Gabizon in the Book of Numbers, chapter 11, shalom.

    In this week's message, we are going to hear about the hardened heart of Israel. But they are not alone, man has not changed. Even after the Noahic flood with only 8 survivors, man did not change. For just after the flood, in Gen. 8:21, God summarized man’s condition saying “ …although the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth”…
    Some of us have a personal gym trainer, one who works to harden and tighten our muscles, but when it comes to the spiritual, our permanent personal trainer, the Holy Spirit softens the heart muscle so that God’s voice can be heard and the seed can be sowed. We read in Philippians 4:8,7 “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Messiah Yeshua.” Peace will come when we flood our hearts each day with God’s voice of truth.

    The Book of Numbers sermon 7

    Let us not be partakers of darkness, but as the lampstand in the Tabernacle was to point the way to the Holy of Holies, let us walk as children of light. Without the light of the menorah, the priests could not work at all in the holy place. Likewise, without the light of Messiah which never gets extinguished, we could not continue the work for the Lord, a work which defies mortality, a work which is eternal, a salvation which is secured, one that will never burn out, like a well that will never run dry. Behold God is our eternal light and salvation.

    The Book of Numbers sermon 6

    All too often we listen to the wrong things that people tell us. We feel their judgment, making us believe that we are not capable or worthy. Well, when it came to the tribes of Israel whether large or small in number, whether first or last in the wilderness march, whether situated on the east side or the north side of the Tabernacle, God gave equal opportunity and privilege to each one of these twelve tribes. They all brought the same offering. Judah, the largest tribe did not bring more than Manasseh, the smallest of all the tribes. It is as if God took pleasure in repeatedly mentioning the offer given by each tribe. But it is not just a simple duplication for God because every act of worship is counted, no matter how small we are or what small thing we might do. We do not need to be afraid of anyone’s attack. For we are counted worthy and important in the sight of God. 
    And just as each offering from each tribe was counted and considered valuable, on a personal level we know the Lord counts each of our tears, hears each of our prayers…no matter how repetitious we are. After all, has God not asked us to pray without ceasing? And the Lord answers these prayers, as each of us will receive our reward personally from the Lord. Lord, hear us, teach us and unite our heart to Yours.

    The Book of Numbers sermon 5
    Chapter 5 of Numbers made open and public internal sin and now, having dealt with that, God continues to stress holiness, offering each person, man or woman the opportunity to be set apart, to become, if you will, a Nazirite and to be dedicated to the service of God. Though not from the Levitical priesthood, here was the opportunity to demonstrate a holy living which would set them apart from the others. In that respect Lord, we want to be pious and separate ourselves from the world; yes to live in it but not to be part of it. Yes, the hair had to left long and yes, you couldn’t eat even the peel of a grape and yes, you couldn’t touch a corpse. We too must be different from the world. Instead of our hair, let’s let our love grow long and strong, let us rejoice in the vineyard of God’s harvest and let us not touch sin because it is the seed of death. Let us now live in the freedom of serving and dedicating our lives to You.

    We have learned how God was stationed in the midst of the camp of the children of Israel, in the Tabernacle. Yet in time, we will see how He comes out from the Tabernacle, to heal us and restore us, as He did with those bitten by the snakes in the desert. He will reach the leper for this is what Yeshua did. In fact God left His abode in heaven, the center of holiness, the place of purity and came out to touch each one of us. We want to stay close to the One whose essence is
    Kadosh, holy and set apart; the One Who sets us apart from the unholiness and ungodliness that is within our midst. Hell means being separated from God, but heaven draws us close to You, O Lord. We always want to stay close by Your side.
