Numbers 9

And the Lord spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the first month of the second year after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying,

Let the children of Israel also keep the passover at his appointed season.

In the fourteenth day of this month, at even, ye shall keep it in his appointed season: according to all the rites of it, and according to all the ceremonies thereof, shall ye keep it.

And Moses spake unto the children of Israel, that they should keep the passover.

And they kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the first month at even in the wilderness of Sinai: according to all that the Lordcommanded Moses, so did the children of Israel.

And there were certain men, who were defiled by the dead body of a man, that they could not keep the passover on that day: and they came before Moses and before Aaron on that day:

And those men said unto him, We are defiled by the dead body of a man: wherefore are we kept back, that we may not offer an offering of the Lord in his appointed season among the children of Israel?

And Moses said unto them, Stand still, and I will hear what the Lordwill command concerning you.

And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

10 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If any man of you or of your posterity shall be unclean by reason of a dead body, or be in a journey afar off, yet he shall keep the passover unto the Lord.

11 The fourteenth day of the second month at even they shall keep it, and eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs.

12 They shall leave none of it unto the morning, nor break any bone of it: according to all the ordinances of the passover they shall keep it.

13 But the man that is clean, and is not in a journey, and forbeareth to keep the passover, even the same soul shall be cut off from among his people: because he brought not the offering of the Lord in his appointed season, that man shall bear his sin.

14 And if a stranger shall sojourn among you, and will keep the passover unto the Lord; according to the ordinance of the passover, and according to the manner thereof, so shall he do: ye shall have one ordinance, both for the stranger, and for him that was born in the land.

15 And on the day that the tabernacle was reared up the cloud covered the tabernacle, namely, the tent of the testimony: and at even there was upon the tabernacle as it were the appearance of fire, until the morning.

16 So it was alway: the cloud covered it by day, and the appearance of fire by night.

17 And when the cloud was taken up from the tabernacle, then after that the children of Israel journeyed: and in the place where the cloud abode, there the children of Israel pitched their tents.

18 At the commandment of the Lord the children of Israel journeyed, and at the commandment of the Lord they pitched: as long as the cloud abode upon the tabernacle they rested in their tents.

19 And when the cloud tarried long upon the tabernacle many days, then the children of Israel kept the charge of the Lord, and journeyed not.

20 And so it was, when the cloud was a few days upon the tabernacle; according to the commandment of the Lord they abode in their tents, and according to the commandment of the Lord they journeyed.

21 And so it was, when the cloud abode from even unto the morning, and that the cloud was taken up in the morning, then they journeyed: whether it was by day or by night that the cloud was taken up, they journeyed.

22 Or whether it were two days, or a month, or a year, that the cloud tarried upon the tabernacle, remaining thereon, the children of Israel abode in their tents, and journeyed not: but when it was taken up, they journeyed.

23 At the commandment of the Lord they rested in the tents, and at the commandment of the Lord they journeyed: they kept the charge of the Lord, at the commandment of the Lord by the hand of Moses.

    Ready or not we must go when we hear the call of the Lord or be left behind.

  3. 8 And Moses said unto them, Stand still, and I will hear what the Lordwill command concerning you.

    9 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

    There are many times that we ask God to speak to us and we want to hear from him. Then God speaks through our shepherd and we have a tendency to not hear what they are saying and you disregard it. But through out the entire bible God has always spoke to the men of God.

    I am thankful for a pastor and his wife that has led by example and never deviated from the process of what God has called them to do for the kingdom. They lead the sheep of the POFW. We have to realize that when we seem to not hear the voice of God we have to listen for the voice of the shepherd. We have to tune our ears for that small still voice as Moses did. Seeking first the kingdom allows us to stay tuned in to God or the man of God, so we can live Jesus and give Jesus.

  4. Verse 23 MSG “At the command of the Lord they camped, and at the command of the Lord they journeyed on; they kept their obligation to the Lord, in accordance with the command of the Lord through Moses.” Everything is at the command of the Lord for He is and should be at the center of it all. Every step I take, every thought I have, every word that is spoken, every action that is taken needs to be at the command of the Lord. Let us go POFW…..march on as we LIVE – GIVE – JESUS!

    Psalm 25:4-5 AMP) “Let me know Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths. Guide me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You [and only You] I wait [expectantly] all the day long.”

    Psalm 37:23 AMP “The steps of a [good and righteous] man are directed and established by the Lord, And He delights in his way [and blesses his path].”

  5. 19 And when the cloud tarried long upon the tabernacle many days, then the children of Israel kept the charge of the Lord, and journeyed not.
    20 And so it was, when the cloud was a few days upon the tabernacle; according to the commandment of the Lord they abode in their tents, and according to the commandment of the Lord they journeyed.
    21 And so it was, when the cloud abode from even unto the morning, and that the cloud was taken up in the morning, then they journeyed: whether it was by day or by night that the cloud was taken up, they journeyed.

    God is not always going to give us the entire journey tell us every step along the way, most of the time he will only give us a few steps at a time and what’s directly in front of us. He will light our pathway just enough to see the next place we’re supposed to go. This is about us trusting God through the process of change and allowing him to guide us through the journey. If we see the entire pathway ahead of us and see the dangers that lie ahead that he’s going to bring us through then it may deter us from following but if we just take it through the process and handle it a little at a time by trusting him then we’re able to see what God can do along the way.

  6. Numbers 9

    8 Moses said, “Give me some time; I’ll find out what God says in your circumstances.”

    Listen Intently to what the men if God have to say. The pastor the other preachers as they speak preach teach realize they’re have spent time with God .
    Thank God for the men of God who hear listen and obey. This is the message version . Moses says give me time. Many times we are in such a hurry for an answer. Moses was leading a multitude of people. God will give the answer but realize that through the preaching of. The Word the voice of God is speaking through him as he leads the people .
    This is why when we come to church we should be waiting expectantly to hear what is going to be preached . The very answer we are seeking will come because time spent with God to know what to answer to the people. d and the nations would flow to his house: “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob, that he may teach us his ways and that we may walk in his paths” (Isa. 2:3). Needing about answer come hear the word . If you notice God gave Moses instructions for both clean and unclean . There is an answer . Don’t allow fear guilt disobedience anything to keep you from approaching the man of God . God will speak to him if you ask he will find the answer . Give him some time ….

    Deuteronomy 32:47 (ESV)
    47 For it is no empty word for you, but your very life, and by this word you shall live long in the land that you are going over the Jordan to possess.”

  7. The Cloud by Day; Fire by Night
    Numbers 9:15,16 And on the day that the tabernacle was reared up the cloud covered the tabernacle, namely, the tent of the testimony: and at even there was a upon the tabernacle as it were the appearance of fire, until the morning. So it was alway: the cloud covered it by day, and the appearance of fire by night.
    ……and at even there was upon the tabernacle, as it were, the appearance
    of fire until the morning;
    the same phenomenon, which looked like a cloud in the daytime, appeared like fire in the same place in the nighttime, throughout the whole of it until morning light, when it was seen as a cloud again: this was a token of the presence of God with the people of Israel, of his protection of them, and being a guide unto them by night and day, while in the wilderness; and was a figure of his being the same to his church and people, in the present state of things;

    Isaiah 4:5 ) And the Lord will create upon every dwelling place of Mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory shall be a defense.

  8. 8. And Moses said unto them, Stand still, and I will hear what the Lord will command concerning you.

    18. At the commandment of the Lord the children of Israel journeyed, and at the commandment of the Lord they pitched: as long as the cloud abode upon the tabernacle they rested in their tents.

    19. And when the cloud tarried long upon the tabernacle many days, then the children of Israel kept the charge of the Lord, and journeyed not.

    Sometimes, the best thing you can do is be still.

    Psalm 46:10
    Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

    Psalm 4:4
    Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah.

  9. Numbers 9 : 8 [ Amp] And Moses said to them, Stand still, and I will hear what the Lord will command concerning you.
    [ P.s.. 46 : 10 ] Let be and be still , and know recognize and understand) that I am God, I will be exalted in the earth. O clap your hands, all you people! Shout to God with your voice of triumph and songs of joy ! I will shout Jesus through every storm I will go through and I will lift up my hands and give him praise, He is my everlasting father forever. Live Jesus, Give Jesus, 2020.

  10. Wow what great instructions we have from the word of God! What great instruction we have from our man of God. POFW is great and rest is it’s leasership!

  11. 23 At the commandment of the Lord they rested in the tents, and at the commandment of the Lord they journeyed: they kept the charge of the Lord, at the commandment of the Lord by the hand of Moses.

    Some may say , it is easier said than done to be obedient….. truth is, it is only as hard as we make it…..obey and reap the will of GOD….

  12. 16 So it was alway: the cloud covered it by day, and the appearance of fire by night.

    So beautiful!!! Can you see His Presence!!! Imagine a large blue sky but ONE CLOUD!!! He is ALWAYS with us!!!! EMMANUEL GOD WITH US!!! GOD IN US!! We go through trials and tribulations and He is ALWAYS with us!!! Sometimes as a good sideline coach He just waits for us to look towards Him for guidance but HE IS ALWAYS THERE!!! I was speaking to a friend and she kept saying that she was just so afraid; to what I answer that God does not gives us the spirit of fear, to stop using that word! We could be concern for the unknown but never anxious or fearful for whatever is to come He is right there in the middle of it all! Thank you Jesus for I know you will never leave me nor forsake me. Thank you because you always reward your children. Thank you for in the desert and wilderness you made sure we have the cloud and the fire of your presence!!!

  13. When Moses didnt have the answer for the unclean men, he inquired of God. I have heard Pastor say many times that when we ask him for direction or for a matter, if he doesnt have it, to wait and let him inquire of God. So, when in doubt, go to our man of God and hear what the Lord says and obey.

  14. So they camped or traveled at the Lord ’s command, and they did whatever the Lord told them through Moses.
    Numbers 9:23 NLT
    https://bible.com/bible/116/num.9.23.NLT

    Knowing when to move and when to stay put is something that we need to seek counsel from the Lord about. I’ve made big decisions without God and with God and the former always ends up a much harder road. I’m thankful for the Hand of the Lord on my life.

  15. In the fourteenth day of this month, at even, ye shall keep it in his appointed season: according to all the rites of it, and according to all the ceremonies thereof, shall ye keep it.

    4 And Moses spake unto the children of Israel, that they should keep the passover.

    5 And they kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the first month at even in the wilderness of Sinai: according to all that the Lordcommanded Moses, so did the children of Israel.

  16. iLove Jesus

    12 They shall leave none of it unto the morning, nor break any bone of it: according to all the ordinances of the passover they shall keep it.

    13 But the man that is clean, and is not in a journey, and forbeareth to keep the passover, even the same soul shall be cut off from among his people: because he brought not the offering of the Lord in his appointed season, that man shall bear his sin

    As I was reading this portion of scripture, I realized the importance of the fact that there is only one path to God. Just like the Passover, if a person refused to observe the Passover, they would be cut off from the people. Jesus is that Passover Lamb and not a bone was broken on his body. If we don’t observe Jesus, we get cut off from the people of God.

  17. At the commandment of the Lord they rested in the tents, and at the commandment of the Lord they journeyed: they kept the charge of the Lord, at the commandment of the Lord by the hand of Moses.

    It’s very crucial to obey the voice of the Lord and respond to the word of the Lord. Even in church it’s crucial to respond to the man of God when he’s preaching. Working with children right off the block I see they’re learning to cope with emotions at a very very young age. Most are experiencing things that others may or never even heard of. From the time of their childhood to the time of the adult life they have a very short period to respond to reality. The popular question is “am I running towards God or am I running away?” What we end up seeing is a 14,15,16 year old kid completely numb to emotions. That’s a spirit church, that’s a spirit of insensitivity. We have to pray more than we ever have, we have to read more than we ever have and we have to reach more than we ever have because the adversaries plan is to make you insensitive to the Spirit of God. When were insensitive we don’t respond to the word of God.

  18. 8 And Moses said unto them, Stand still, and I will hear what the Lordwill command concerning you.

    9 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

    Moses was not going to give advice without first seeking what the Lord would say regarding the matter.

    We are wise to not make any decisions without first seeking what the Lord would say. Trouble arises when we don’t wait on a response from the Lord, or the Lord responds but we don’t listen because it wasn’t what we wanted to hear.

    Everything Moses and the Israelites did was “at the commandment of the Lord.” They did nothing without seeking Him first – First the Kingdom, First Jesus.

    We must use these same principles in our lives. We can’t just fly by the seat of our pants, we must know what the Lord is speaking and adhere to His commandments.

  19. Numbers 9:7-10 & 22-23 (NLT)
    7) And said, We have become ceremonially unclean by touching a dead body. But why should we be prevented from presenting the LORD’s offering at the proper time with the rest of the Israelites?
    8) Moses answered, Wait here until I have received instructions for you from the LORD.
    9) This was the LORD’s reply to Moses.
    10) Give the following instructions to the people of Israel:…

    22) Whether the cloud stayed above the Tabernacle for two days, a month, or a year, the people of Israel stayed in camp and did not move on. But as soon as it lifted, they broke camp and moved on.
    23) So they camped or traveled at the LORD’s command, and they did whatever the LORD told them through Moses.

    To me this chapter is about waiting on the LORD and not doing your own thing.
    It’s about finding the right answer in a situation and about following the leading of the LORD in your life.

  20. And on the day that the tabernacle was reared up the cloud covered the tabernacle, namely, the tent of the testimony: and at even there was upon the tabernacle as it were the appearance of fire, until the morning.
    16 So it was alway: the cloud covered it by day, and the appearance of fire by night.
    17 And when the cloud was taken up from the tabernacle, then after that the children of Israel journeyed: and in the place where the cloud abode, there the children of Israel pitched their tents.
    18 At the commandment of the Lord the children of Israel journeyed, and at the commandment of the Lord they pitched: as long as the cloud abode upon the tabernacle they rested in their tents.
    19 And when the cloud tarried long upon the tabernacle many days, then the children of Israel kept the charge of the Lord, and journeyed not.
    20 And so it was, when the cloud was a few days upon the tabernacle; according to the commandment of the Lord they abode in their tents, and according to the commandment of the Lord they journeyed.
    21 And so it was, when the cloud abode from even unto the morning, and that the cloud was taken up in the morning, then they journeyed: whether it was by day or by night that the cloud was taken up, they journeyed.
    22 Or whether it were two days, or a month, or a year, that the cloud tarried upon the tabernacle, remaining thereon, the children of Israel abode in their tents, and journeyed not: but when it was taken up, they journeyed.
    23 At the commandment of the Lord they rested in the tents, and at the commandment of the Lord they journeyed: they kept the charge of the Lord, at the commandment of the Lord by the hand of Moses.

    The cloud by day and the fire by night was comfort to Israel. So when the cloud moved, Israel moved and when the cloud stayed, Israel stayed. They only went where the presence of God led them, and they only stayed where the presence of God stayed. This was more than proof of God’s presence. As believers today we must in the same way be led by the presence of God.

  21. LIVE – GIVE JESUS
    DONT MOVE WITHOUT THE COVERING

    15 And on the day that the tabernacle was reared up the cloud covered the tabernacle, namely, the tent of the testimony: and at even there was upon the tabernacle as it were the appearance of fire, until the morning.
    16 So it was alway: the cloud covered it by day, and the appearance of fire by night.
    17 And when the cloud was taken up from the tabernacle, then after that the children of Israel journeyed: and in the place where the cloud abode, there the children of Israel pitched their tents.

    One of the early and important principals that GOD gave HIS people is the principal of a Spiritual Covering. GOD established through Moses how and when the people would know it is time to move and time to rest.

    In current day, our Pastor is that cloud and fire. Without the covering and protection of the Man of GOD we move on our own and take great and often grave Spiritual risks.

    Sin is deadly and relentless, obedience is protective and safe. Remain under your Spiritual covering even when you dont understand or even agree with their choice. GOD established the principal of the “Covering”. CLOUD of protection and FIRE of anointing, both provided Israel with distinct Spiritual direction; NIGHT and DAY and DAY and NIGHT.

    We must learn to TRUST in GOD and the Man of GOD that HE has given us and DONT MOVE WITHOUT THE COVERING.

  22. 1 And the Lord spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the first month of the second year after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying,

    2 Let the children of Israel also keep the passover at his appointed season.

    Don’t forget the blood!

    God told Moses don’t let them forget about the blood. Don’t let them forget where they used to be and where they are now today.

    God told Moses don’t let them forget about the blood. Don’t let them forget where they used to be and where they are now today.

    I am have a funny way of helping us forget the past, 11 years ago my life was very different than today. I never thought in 1 million years what I left today would be a reality. I don’t think that even in my sweetest dreams because I perceive to be as blessed as I am today.

    That’s what I think God was trying to let them know, don’t forget what I’ve done for you and you will always be grateful.

  23. 8:22 or we there it was two days, or a month or a year, that the cloud tarry upon the Tabernacle remaining there off
    The children of Israel abound in their tents, and journeyed not: but when it was taken up, they journey.
    ————
    Wait upon the lord, Werner it takes a week, a year, five or more……
    Wait upon the Lord. And be ready for that day🙌

  24. 23 At the commandment of the Lord they rested in the tents, and at the commandment of the Lord they journeyed: they kept the charge of the Lord, at the commandment of the Lord by the hand of Moses.

    The Lord gave an order for the Israelite nation to keep the passover. This means they are to do this in remembrance of what God has done to bring them out of Egypt. God spared and kept them for dooms of the plagues inflicted upon Egypt. In Goshen they were safe from any harm and even prospered. We would do well not to forget where God has delivered us from. When we do then Gods presence will dwell with us also.

  25. “Therefore, Moses said to them, “Wait, and I will listen to what the LORD will command concerning you.””
    ‭‭Numbers‬ ‭9:8‬ ‭AMP‬‬

    As a leader we are required to have answers and direction. It is OK to see counsel from God when we don’t have the answers. We’re wanting to lead as God directs us not our own will.

  26. 16 So it was alway: the cloud covered it by day, and the appearance of fire by night.

    17 And when the cloud was taken up from the tabernacle, then after that the children of Israel journeyed: and in the place where the cloud abode, there the children of Israel pitched their tents.

    18 At the commandment of the Lord the children of Israel journeyed, and at the commandment of the Lord they pitched: as long as the cloud abode upon the tabernacle they rested in their tents.

    19 And when the cloud tarried long upon the tabernacle many days, then the children of Israel kept the charge of the Lord, and journeyed not.

    20 And so it was, when the cloud was a few days upon the tabernacle; according to the commandment of the Lord they abode in their tents, and according to the commandment of the Lord they journeyed.

    21 And so it was, when the cloud abode from even unto the morning, and that the cloud was taken up in the morning, then they journeyed: whether it was by day or by night that the cloud was taken up, they journeyed.

  27. Números 9 :1-5
    ” La primera pascua en el desierto.
    Habló Jehová a Moisés en el desierto de Sinaí, en el segundo año de su salida de la tierra de Egipto, en el mes primero, diciendo: Los hijos de Israel celebrarán la pascua a su tiempo. El decimocuarto día de este mes, entre las dos tardes, la celebraréis a su tiempo; conforme a todos sus ritos y conforme a todas sus leyes la celebraréis. Y habló Moisés a los hijos de Israel para que celebrasen la pascua. Celebraron la pascua en el mes primero, a los catorce días del mes, entre las dos tardes, en el desierto de Sinaí; conforme a todas las cosas que mandó Jehová a Moisés, así hicieron los hijos de Israel”

    * “Los hijos de Israel celebrarán la pascua a su tiempo” Israel celebro la pascua cuando salieron de Egipto. La pascua aquí marco el primer año de su viaje fuera de la esclavitud y dentro de la Tierra Prometida.

    * “Conforme a todos sus ritos y conforme a todas sus leyes la celebraréis” La pascua se suponía ser un recordatorio de Dios “pasando sobre” Israel en el juicio del primogénito en el Éxodo de Egipto.
    La sangre del cordero, puesta en los postes de las puertas del hogar, sería visto por el ángel del juicio de Dios – y viendo la sangre, el ángel “pasaría sobre” y preservaría el hogar cubierto por la sangre.

    * La pascua estaba destinada a ser un recordatorio continuo de esta ocasión de ser exentos del juicio, y de la libertad que tenían ahora.

    * Jesús cumplió el sacrificio de la pascua por Su muerte en la cruz. la cobertura de su sangre causo el juicio de Dios “pasar sobre” nosotros.

    *Somos mandados a continuamente recordar nuestra ocasión de ser exentos del juicio y la liberación que le sigue, al recordar el trabajo de Jesús en la cruz ,cada vez que tomamos La Santa Cena.

    * Gracias Señor Jesús por la libertad que tenemos, y porque con tu sangre derramada en la Cruz nos has hecho exentos del Juicio..

  28. 15 And on the day that the tabernacle was reared up the cloud covered the tabernacle, namely, the tent of the testimony: and at even there was upon the tabernacle as it were the appearance of fire, until the morning.

    16 So it was alway: the cloud covered it by day, and the appearance of fire by night.

    17 And when the cloud was taken up from the tabernacle, then after that the children of Israel journeyed: and in the place where the cloud abode, there the children of Israel pitched their tents.

    Stillness of the presents of the Lord. It didnt matter how many days the cloud was there, they stayed sill. They stayed there. Its like at the end of service when you feel the presents of the Holy Ghost and you feel the warmth of Jesus you dont want to move. You want to just soak it all up.

  29. Appointed season/Wilderness praise day and night and night and day

    Stand still BUT stay readily available to receive

    [1] And the Lord spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the first month of the second year after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying,

    [8] And Moses said unto them, Stand still, and I will hear what the Lord will command concerning you.

    I love y’all (church family) 💛

  30. This chapter was telling us about the cloud god sent to lead then Israelite camp through the wilderness away from death and harm. If we listen and obey then god will lead us in the right direction.

  31. 16 So it was alway: the cloud covered it by day, and the appearance of fire by night.

    17 And when the cloud was taken up from the tabernacle, then after that the children of Israel journeyed: and in the place where the cloud abode, there the children of Israel pitched their tents.

    18 At the commandment of the Lord the children of Israel journeyed, and at the commandment of the Lord they pitched: as long as the cloud abode upon the tabernacle they rested in their tents.

    19 And when the cloud tarried long upon the tabernacle many days, then the children of Israel kept the charge of the Lord, and journeyed not.

    20 And so it was, when the cloud was a few days upon the tabernacle; according to the commandment of the Lord they abode in their tents, and according to the commandment of the Lord they journeyed.

    21 And so it was, when the cloud abode from even unto the morning, and that the cloud was taken up in the morning, then they journeyed: whether it was by day or by night that the cloud was taken up, they journeyed.

    22 Or whether it were two days, or a month, or a year, that the cloud tarried upon the tabernacle, remaining thereon, the children of Israel abode in their tents, and journeyed not: but when it was taken up, they journeyed.

    23 At the commandment of the Lord they rested in the tents, and at the commandment of the Lord they journeyed: they kept the charge of the Lord, at the commandment of the Lord by the hand of Moses.

    When the cloud moved, Israel moved; when the cloud stayed, Israel stayed. They only went where the presence of God led them, and they only stayed where the presence of God stayed.

  32. God was clearly present with the Israelites. His pillar of cloud and fire led them. God led them where He wanted to go keeping the Israelites safe.

  33. 16 So it was alway: the cloud covered it by day, and the appearance of fire by night.

    17 And when the cloud was taken up from the tabernacle, then after that the children of Israel journeyed: and in the place where the cloud abode, there the children of Israel pitched their tents.

    We can rest assure that of we are in obedience to God and our Pastor we will be covered by the cloud of protection, and we should always strive to stay under that covering. What ever it takes on our part.

  34. And there were certain men, who were defiled by the dead body of a man, that they could not keep the passover on that day: and they came before Moses and before Aaron on that day:

    7 And those men said unto him, We are defiled by the dead body of a man: wherefore are we kept back, that we may not offer an offering of the Lord in his appointed season among the children of Israel?

    8 And Moses said unto them, Stand still, and I will hear what the Lordwill command concerning you.

    9 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

    It is good and a blessing to have a man of God in your life that will not only cover you, but also go before the Lord on your behalf. It would be wise, and behooves one to keep close relationship with his man of God. They give an account for your life. So pray for them and lift them up, and encourage that they may continue on with the important role God has given them.

  35. 15 And on the day that the tabernacle was reared up the cloud covered the tabernacle, namely, the tent of the testimony: and at even there was upon the tabernacle as it were the appearance of fire, until the morning. 16 So it was alway: the cloud covered it by day, and the appearance of fire by night.
    17 And when the cloud was taken up from the tabernacle, then after that the children of Israel journeyed: and in the place where the cloud abode, there the children of Israel pitched their tents.
    We must be under the cloud ☁️ under the Lord’s covering. Our altar 🔥should always be prepared. We must remain still and trust in the Lord. We must be ready to be moved as the Lord commands us to move, always trusting the Lord.

  36. Numbers chapter 9

    A Few Simple Rules For Celebrating Passover
    Okay

    ,

    when the tabernacle finally comes together, God goes ahead and explains to Moses when and how everyone is supposed to celebrate Passover. Easy, right? Not quite.
    Some of the people are “unclean.” Seems they have been touching some dead bodies. Seriously, there are, apparently, tons of dead bodies laying around in Sinai for the touching.
    These people come to Moses wondering if they can celebrate Passover, too. All they did was poke a few corpses—is that so wrong?
    Moses checks with God and finds out that they can celebrate Passover—they just have to do it one month later than everyone else.
    Sounds great, but one quick warning. Unless you’re unclean or away on some long journey—you need to be celebrating Passover with everyone else at the correct time. Obviously, anyone who tries to delay Passover will be kicked out of the community. Or killed. Seems fair, right?
    Also, if non-Israelites who are living in the community want to celebrate Passover too, go ahead and invite them over. The more the merrier! Bitter herbs for all!
    Partly Cloudy Travel Plans
    Anyway, back to the tabernacle. See, on the day it was set up, a cloud covered the opening to the tabernacle. At night, the cloud would look like fire. Oh, nice special effects, God.
    This cloud is pretty important though. Whenever the Israelites would move the tabernacle in the future (they’re about to set out on the journey in the next chapter), the cloud would tell them where to go. Clever cloud.
    When the cloud would leave the tabernacle, they would know it was time to pack up and go. When the cloud would come to rest somewhere, they would know that this was the place they needed to make camp. It’s kind of like GPS, except with 100% more clouds.
    Basically, by following the cloud they were following God

  37. 13 But the man that is clean, and is not in a journey, and forbeareth to keep the passover, even the same soul shall be cut off from among his people: because he brought not the offering of the Lord in his appointed season, that man shall bear his sin.

    I’m thankful that Jesus has mercy on us when we don’t do the right things in life and he don’t cut us off right away and give up on us , if he did I would of been done quite a long time ago. But he found me again and again and has wrapped his arms around me and brought me back when I didn’t deserve it.

  38. “Whether the cloud stayed above the Tabernacle for two days, a month, or a year, the people of Israel stayed in camp and did not move on. But as soon as it lifted, they broke camp and moved on.(‭‭Numbers‬ ‭9:22‬ ‭NLT)

    This passage helps us to remember that God is everything we got and need to live a faith successful life. The people of Israel made there minds up and decide to live pure righteous life and knew that all there days of living were because of the breath of God. They also knew that they couldn’t live a righteous life the fullest even if they wanted to without God in control of there lives. So the people of Israel lived every second of there’s lives by being obedient to the Lord.

  39. 23 At the commandment of the Lord they rested in the tents, and at the commandment of the Lord they journeyed: they kept the charge of the Lord, at the commandment of the Lord by the hand of Moses.

    Never make a move without God’s hands over you. Always, make sure it is God’s voice, you are listening.

  40. 1 And the Lord spake into Moses, saying 2 make there two trumpets of silver, of a whole piece shall thou make them: that tho mayest use them for the calling of the assembly and for journeying of the camps. 3 And when they shall blow with them, all assembly shall assemble themselves to thee…
    4 And if thou blow but one trumpet , then the princess , which are heads of the thousands of Israel, shall gather themselves into their.
    Different calls of the trumpets meant different things. God thinks of everything. Remember there were thousands of Israelites and they needed communication with each other. As today we have phones, email, text …

  41. 18 At the commandment of the Lord the children of Israel journeyed, and at the commandment of the Lord they pitched: as long as the cloud abode upon the tabernacle they rested in their tents.

    19 And when the cloud tarried long upon the tabernacle many days, then the children of Israel kept the charge of the Lord, and journeyed not.

    The children of Israel journeyed, pitched their tents, and rested at the command of God. Moses was a great example of a great leader. He heard from the Lord delivered the Word and if He didn’t know the answer He didn’t guess He sought the Lord for the answer.

    To easy to say that we as leaders do this 100% of the time. Yet we have our moments. Yet my prayer is that we would set out hearts so closely to God and towards His house that it is first nature to God straight to God in all things and bye-pass our feelings desires and wants.

  42. 8 Moses answered, “Wait here until I have received instructions for you from the LORD.”

    As Moses waited to here from God, we too have to wait on God’s time. We may go to Pastor for answers, but he too may wait on God’s instructions for you. Be patient, continue to pray, and your answer will be there.

  43. At the commandment of the Lord they rested in the tents, and at the commandment of the Lord they journeyed: they kept the charge of the Lord , at the commandment of the Lord by the hand of Moses.
    Numbers 9:23 KJV

    When we are submitted to.God He will lead and guide us, telling us when and where to go and when to stay in place.

    Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
    Romans 8:26‭-‬28 KJV

  44. 5 And they kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the first month at even in the wilderness of Sinai: according to all that the Lordcommanded Moses, so did the children of Israel.

    First be careful to say, “God Said” if God didn’t say! We simply conduit of God. It’s critical to get it right.

    Second, Moses uttered every word God said to his people, and made sure it was followed. Don’t put your twist on Gods word, His word is enough.
