5 People on the Move: The Book of Numbers Our Goal {181} AS A people on the move, as a people seeking to reach the Promised Land, as a people called out by God, we could learn from the book of Numbers. The most important lesson is that God will fulfill His promises.

6 People on the Move: The Book of Numbers Lesson 2, October 10 People on the Move: The Book of Numbers Lesson 2, October 10

7 Preparing a People Key Text 3 John 2 NKJV “BELOVED, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.”

8 Preparing a People Initial Words {196} THIS WEEK we’ll look at some of the provisions that the Lord instituted for His ancient people, which include such things as how to deal with some sickness and disease, how to deal with marital infidelity, and how to deal with the personal clashes that inevitably arise when people live together.

9 Preparing a People Quick Look 1. Disease CONTROL (Numbers 5:1-4) 2. Social CONTROL (Numbers 5:6-8) 3. Marital CONTROL (Numbers 5:11-31)

10 Preparing a People 1. Disease Control Numbers 5:2 NKJV “ ‘COMMAND THE children of Israel that they put out of the camp every leper, every one who has a discharge, and whoever becomes defiled by a dead body.’ ”

11 1.Disease Control Quarantine {197} THE LORD didn’t hate these physically impaired persons, but for the sake of the health of the nation, He separated them to an area outside the camp, a kind of quarantine. Even in modern times we have special wards in hospitals for persons with infectious diseases.

12 Look at this whole thing from a spiritual perspective, from the idea of defilement, of sin, and of what sin does to us. What believer hasn’t experienced the reality of how sin separates a person from the sense of God’s presence? Who hasn’t experienced the sense of spiritual isolation that comes from being defiled before God? 1.Disease Control Quarantine {197}

13 Preparing a People 2. Social Control Numbers 5:6-8 NKJV “ ‘WHEN A man or woman commits a sin … against the LORD, … then he shall confess…. He shall make restitution … in full value plus one-fifth of it…. But if the man has no kinsman to whom restitution may be made … the restitution must go to the L ORD ….’ ”

14 2. Social Control Sin Against God {199} TO WRONG our neighbor is to sin against God Himself. We all belong to God; we are all His property, both by creation and by redemption. If someone were to come onto your property and damage it, the sin wouldn’t be just against the property itself as much as against you, the one who owns it.

15 How do we right the wrong we have done to God, against whom we’ve sinned, as well? We can’t. It’s way too late for is to make ourselves right with God. That’s why Jesus came: to set us right with God, not through anything we could do but only through what Jesus has done for us. 2. Social Control Sin Against God {199}

16 Numbers 5:12-15 NLT “ ‘Suppose a man’s wife … has sex with another man, but neither her husband nor anyone else knows about it. … If her husband becomes jealous and is suspicious … [he] must bring his wife to the priest. He must also bring an offering….’ ” Preparing a People 3. Marital Control

17 “ ‘The priest will then present her to stand trial before the L ORD. He must take some holy water … pour into it dust taken from the Tabernacle floor. … He will make the woman drink the bitter water that brings on the curse. When the water enters her body, it will cause bitter suffering if she is guilty.’ ” 3. Marital Control Numbers 5:16-24 NLT

18 3. Marital Control Importance of Marriage Vow {201} THIS PROCEDURE (strange to us) was not an instance of magic. Rather, it was a concrete visual aid that ex-slaves could grasp. It was not the water but the Lord who read the wife’s heart and who punished or cleared her.

19 The point it brings out is how important the marriage vow is in the eyes of God. God alone knows just how much pain, suffering, and damage have been caused by marital infidelity by one partner or another. What a tragedy that in so many societies marriage vows seem to hold about as much sanctity as a handshake. 3. Marital Control Importance of Marriage Vow {201}

20 Preparing a People Final Words {207} THE LORD would have His people happy and at peace. Physical and spiritual wholeness are obtained by loving obedience to His laws of life, kind relationships with spouse and neighbors, and daily consecration to the will of the Father. This does not mean that life is always easy, but it can be improved greatly if we seek to walk in His paths.
