God’s Road Map to Heaven by Way of Route 66 ~ Seeing Jesus in Every Book of the Bible
Christ foreshadowed in Numbers
We are still on this awesome journey traveling from earth to heaven in a way that is provided for our eternal destiny. This journey was established by God Almighty and His Son Jesus (God in the flesh) carried out this plan. Since God is Spirit (John 4:24), we connect with Him spiritually; He also provided a body, so humans can identify with His Son physically in the earthly realm.
In other words, Jesus Christ carried out the plan of Salvation to give humans eternal life. God’s Spirit was also involved in people being born-again (1 Corinthians 12:13); He baptized people into the body of Christ.
We are going to Numbers, another place where you will see types and figures, foreshadowing Jesus Christ. It is imperative that you know the history; this will keep you from being confused and tossed with every wind of doctrine (Ephesians 4:11-16).
When you know and understand the truth, you can stand on the Word of God regardless of all the lies, deception and twisted scriptures that Satan uses against the children of God through unbelievers, cults and false religion.
Why does the Bible call this book Numbers? God told Moses to send twelve men to spy out the land of Canaan that He had promised to the children of Israel; this was their land of promise (Numbers, chapter 13).
Only two spies came back with a good report, and because of unbelief the children of Israel wandered in the wilderness forty years (Numbers 32:13). The ones who did not believe died off from the ages of twenty and above (Numbers 14:27-35).
Now, we are going to see Jesus in Numbers. In the new generation of people, each servant was called and knew his place in the family, just as the church is called and everybody should know their place in the body of Christ (family of God).
This is an example comparing the gifts in the body of Christ with the sons of Korah who were door-keepers, which means they would be the first ones that people would meet when they came into the temple. Even though they were in the family of the Levites, who were priests, they were not direct descendants of Aaron, the high priest.
Korah wanted to be in the position of a high priest; he also had followers who would have caused trouble if they remained alive, so God destroyed them, by allowing the earth to open and swallow Korah and his followers, a total of 250 people (Numbers, chapter 16). The principle here is, God does not respect or regard any service that He has not called one to do.
New Testament: Every child of God has the grace call to function in the gift/s that has been given to them; when a person is functioning in their call, others are encouraged, built up and delivered. God does not honor what He does not call.
In the Old Testament, the Spirit (Lord) went before them in a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night (Exodus 13:21). God’s children are led by the Holy Spirit (John 16:13). With that being so, you will also see that Numbers is a book symbolic of our walk and our service to Christ, which involves surrendering to the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:9, Galatians 5:16).
