The Book of Jeremiah, Part 21 & 22
The Book of Jeremiah is a manual, a guide in our relationship with God. We may have never known Him in the way this prophet brings Him to us. Jeremiah brings God down to earth and teaches us that He is ever so present with us in all aspects of our lives. He lives with us, He is always with us, in our joy and our sorrows.
Welcome to Messianic Viewpoint and this Bible book series on The Book of Jeremiah. Be blessed as you listen and shalom.
Chapter 5 of Numbers made open and public internal sin and now, having dealt with that, God continues to stress holiness, offering each person, man or woman the opportunity to be set apart, to become, if you will, a Nazirite and to be dedicated to the service of God. Though not from the Levitical priesthood, here was the opportunity to demonstrate a holy living which would set them apart from the others. In that respect Lord, we want to be pious and separate ourselves from the world; yes to live in it but not to be part of it. Yes, the hair had to left long and yes, you couldn’t eat even the peel of a grape and yes, you couldn’t touch a corpse. We too must be different from the world. Instead of our hair, let’s let our love grow long and strong, let us rejoice in the vineyard of God’s harvest and let us not touch sin because it is the seed of death. Let us now live in the freedom of serving and dedicating our lives to You. We pray you will be blessed as you listen to the New Year's message in the Book of Numbers (our current study series at Beth Ariel Congregation) with Messianic leader, Jacques Isaac Gabizon, shalom.
