God is the author of Order

1 Cor. 14:33 “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.”

1 Cor. 14:40 “Let all things be done decently and in order.”

Organization

Worship

Work

1 Timothy 3

Titus 1:5 “set in order”

John 4:24

Matt. 15:9

Co-operate

slide13

Num. 11:1 asv “And the people were as murmurers”

    • Complained about the manna
    • Wanted flesh

Murmuring

Num. 14 = 10 spies gave unfavorable report

Num. 21 = wanted water, hated the manna

Num. 12 = Miriam and Aaron

Num. 16 = Korah, Dathan, Abiram

slide14

1 Cor. 10:10 “Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.”

ESV “nor grumble, as some of them did and were destroyed by the Destroyer.”

Murmuring

Instead of murmuring get involved and help.

Murmurers are generally shirkers !

slide15

Stumbling block

Israel not allowed to enter land of Promise

Wandered in wilderness

Murmuring

What if Paul had been a murmurer ?

How many people would he have converted?

How many congregations would he have established?

slide16

Mob Mentality

It spreads in a group

“And the whole congregation --- murmured” 14:2

Murmuring

It is Divisive

14:4 = make a captain and return to Egypt

Party spirit = Gal. 5:20

Does not preserve unity = Eph. 4:3

slide17

Miracles

Signs - wonders

Purpose = to prove that God was speaking

  • Manna and Quail
  • Water from rock
  • Miriam’s Leprosy
  • Korah swallowed by earth
  • Aaron’s rod buds
  • Healed by brass serpent
  • Cloudy Pillar guided
  • Pillar of fire at night
  • Clothes lasted
  • None of these diseases
slide18

Miracles

Signs - wonders

  • Not explained away as natural events
  • Miracle is not an ordinary natural event
  • If it was not a miracle then the Bible is not inspired!
  • Age of miracles has passed – 1 Cor. 13:8
slide19

Lessons from

Numbers

  • God is the author of order
  • He warns about murmuring
  • Miracles were an important part
slide20

Numbers

Numbers 1 – Moses commanded to take a census

The Lord knew all of them by name

2 Tim. 2:19 “…the Lord knoweth them that are his.”

Are you in that number

Must be born again - John 3:3-5

Israelites headed to promised land

Wandered in wilderness

Why? Lack of Faith

Many Christians turn back

slide21

Joshua and Caleb

Matthew 7:13-14

13. Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

14. Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
