sermon: Numbers: The Book of Judgment

Wilderness Wanderings
John W. Ritenbaugh
Given 15-Apr-95; Sermon #178; 82 minutes

Description: (hide)

John Ritenbaugh asserts that the difference between a pilgrim and a wanderer is that the pilgrim knows his destination. God wants our pilgrimage to be a direct route with very few excursions or side-trips to the world. The book of Numbers- a record of God's judgments, tests, and evaluations for ancient Israel, preparing them for their inheritance of the Promised Land,should provide us a roadmap for our pilgrimage to the spiritual Kingdom of God. Like our forebears, we live daily in uncharted territory, but the sobering account in Numbers provides a roadmap, establishing God's pattern of judging and evaluating our pilgrimage conduct.
