2/27/2018 — Numbers Chapters 8-10

As I read these passages I am reminded of just how the Lord cares for His people and their connection to Him.  For example in Chapter 9:9-12   we see the Lord establish conditions for Israelites wh0 are “unclean or on a journey” to still participate in the Passover.

And in Chapter 9:15-23 the Lord leads and controls the pace of their journey via His own presence in the “cloud” above the camp.

His care for His people today has not changed. — John 10:28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand.

    I love the image of God’s fire and cloud directing the movement of his children. I also love the trumpets calling for assembly, movement, and war later on the journey. In a way we Christians are waiting and listening for the next trumpet blast, ready to move onward and upward.
