Numbers 19:15 And every open vessel, which hath no covering bound upon it, is unclean.
The chapter talks about death in the tent and other places. They are being told that when they touch a dead body they are unclean for 7 days, etc. If there is a vessel that is open and uncovered it and whatever is in it will also be unclean!
No one knew that back in the days of Moses. God told His people things that science had not yet discovered. Reading the Old Testament we can learn great lessons of the greatness of our God and of His book. It is a supernatural book. It reveals things that science will need hundreds of years more to discover.
Study it respectfully! Know that even when you do not understand He knows and He is right!
Tomorrow’s reading Numbers 20
Ok to Hide to Preach Again
John 8:59 Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.
Jesus clearly tells them who He is! He said, before Abraham was “I am!” The Jews want to stone Jesus. Jesus hides and then walks out through them. He will go on obviously to do ministry!
The lesson here is that when you know you are about to be killed for doing ministry there is no problem hiding so you can preach again. We should be bold in the gospel. We should be ready to die when the time comes but until then we do not play the fool. We keep going to preach some more!
What a wonderful example God gives us of how Jesus did ministry! He is a worthy example, of course!
