THE STORY of NUMBERS…

God’s Provision

His Righteous Anger and Holiness

God’s Grace

His Faithfulness

God Supports His Servants

  1. The timing of the story of Exodus
    1. 1438 -1398 B.C.
    2. Begins and Ends with a Census
  2. Major Themes
    1. Recurring complaints
    2. Judgments
    3. Forgiveness
    4. Complaints…
  3. Biblical Principle Application
    1. Our ability to complain about our circumstances is inversely proportional to how we see the holiness and stature of our God
    2. The less we honor God for His majestic sovereign power ~ The more we feel free to complain about how God is caring for us
