Discussion for Numbers 1

    James (cont.); So then for our application today we have the Lord's messages to the Churches immediately before the descriptions of the times of the end. We cannot go back and undo what Israel did and restore the kingdom of God through the house of David; God will do that Himself when He comes. For now we are to be like our Master who with singleness of purpose in faith yielded to the persecution.
  • A disciple
    James; Besides the spiritual application to us now; there was definitely a plan in set for the world then at that time. With the perverting and turning away of the hearts and minds of men over the matter of Nimrod and Babel; the whole earth was corrupted and alienated in a heathen rage against God and against His Anointed. Israel was supposed to destroy that evil and bring the world back to God!
  • JamesBonds
    I'm seeing the Lord's incredible order of building a Nation and He is the King of kings. Close to His kingdom on earth, striving for the promised land. Getting equipped, getting marching orders, when to rest, and so on; this is what God does with His people in the Spiritual conquest, especially set free, born again converts. Gods army, marching through the land.
  • William Barber
    My God has shown me so many different things and answerd so many prayers but the question is how do we know he's there the answer is cause he told us out of his mouth he will always be there but we have to seek him he says if we dint know him then we will not acknowledge us

    Truly my God is AWSOME. His promise to Abram in Genesis 12:2. I will bless the and make thy name great ect. God did fullfil his promise just like he is about to fullfil his promise to me. He is truly amazing and I love my God because he is merciful toward his children. He is a promise keeper a man of his word. It's so sweet to trust in Jesus just to take him at his word so people of God trust him
