Look and Live
April 10

And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shalt come to pass, that everyone that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. (Numbers 21:8)

This is a glorious gospel type. Jesus, numbered with the transgressors, hangs before us on the cross. A look to Him will heal us of the serpent-bite of sin; will heal us at once — “When he looketh upon it, he shall live.” Let the reader who is mourning his sinfulness note the words — “Everyone that looketh upon it shall live.” Every looker will find this true. I have found it so. I looked to Jesus and lived at once, I know I did. Reader, if you look to Jesus you will live, too. True, you are swelling with the venom, and you see no hope, True, also there is no hope but this one. But this is no doubtful cure —
“Everyone that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live.”

The brazen serpent was not lifted
up as a curiosity to be gazed upon by the healthy; but its special purpose was for those who were “bitten.” Jesus died as a real Savior for real sinners. Whether the bite has made you a drunkard, or a thief, or an unchaste or a profane person, a look at the great Savior will heal you of these diseases and make you live in holiness and communion with God. Look and live.

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤

    Great blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform
    like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused .. Any recommendations? Many thanks!

      Hello, I started this blog via WordPress (free) and have had very few issues with it. I am very pleased. I always say…”why pay when you don’t have to?” Recommend you try a free site first. There are several out there, I preferred WP due to feedback and commentary that was 90% positive.
      I hope this helps…I am not what most would call computer savvy. I get around alright. I do most my “stuff” via a smart phone through Android. It works for me. Clean, simple, fast and…free 🙂
      Blessings…
