Look and Live!
Gospel Truth in the Old Testament (Numbers 21:5-9):
1) “And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread.” – Man sins.
2) “And the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died.” – the wages of sin is death.
3) “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.” – man acknowledges his need for forgiveness from God.
4) “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.” – God provides one way of salvation.
5) “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.” – Those who look to the salvation God provided – LIVE!
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish but have everlasting life!” – John 3:16
