Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Numbers 25:6


25:6 One came - This was done, when Moses had given the charge to the Judges, and, as it may seem, before the execution of it; otherwise it is probable he would not have been so foolish to have run upon certain ruin, when the examples were frequent before his eyes. To his brethren - Into the camp of the Israelites. In the sight of Moses - An argument of intolerable impudence and contempt of God and of Moses. Weeping - Bewailing the wickedness of the people, and the dreadful judgments of God, and imploring God's mercy and favour.

    From geneses to revelation man is the leader for sure God has made it that way and the only way amen

    I am for peace but when I speak it's meant for war . I suffer not a WOMAN TO TEACH NOR USURP AUTHORITY OVER A MAN. A women teaches young women to be ladies and young children not ADULTS. A women can ONLY WITNESS tracting street preacher. I ONLY LISTEN TO MALE PREACHERS
  • A disciple
    Kevin (cont.); So, YES, sin must be dealt with; by acknowledgment of the truth, confession and repentance, and a changed CONVERTED life! Judgment must begin at the house of God; but many are misled by lying spirits in the mouths of spurious professors, false teachers and preachers, and the devil's ministers in Pastors' costumes; saying that simply by "accepting Jesus" one will escape judgment.
  • A disciple
    Kevin; I don't listen to "Christian Radio," and I can't say that I agree with women teaching. The things I see from this Chapter are about the treachery of the enemy; (who knows how to seduce those who are willing to be seduced); the disaster and destruction of the Lord's Church because of disobedience and rebellion which is the root of fornication and idolatry; and the imperative of a pure heart.
  • Kevin
    I'm listening to Christian radio and the woman there is speaking of this chapter. Her interpretation is simply that "Sin must be dealt with." What do you think? Is this an accurate assessment?
  • A disciple
    With respect to all who are called and separated unto the LORD to be His; it seems like everyone knows what is our strength with God, and what makes us unclean, unholy and unfit for His Presence; EXCEPT THE CHRISTIAN! The devil knew, the king of Moab knew, and Balaam knew, that idols and fornication would corrupt Israel and put them in a weakened condition, and God would withdraw His protection.
