“And they journeyed from mount Hor by the way of the Red sea, to compass the land of Edom: and the soul of the people was much discouraged because of the way. And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread. And the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died. Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord, and against thee; pray unto the Lord, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people. And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.” (Numbers 21:4-9). Jesus said; “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.” (John3:14-15)
Many Doctors wear this symbol of a Brass serpent on a Staff to represent healing and that they are of the Healing profession.
Even though the people murmured and sinned against the Lord by complaining against Moses, Gods Prophet and Messenger, Moses still prayed for them and then God in his Mercy told Moses what to do to save the people. “but they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the Lord arose against his people, till there was no remedy.” (2 Chronicles 36:16). This reminds me of how the people today (mostly the Democrats) mock and murmur about God’s Messenger, President Trump. Could this be one of the reasons why the Lord has allowed this pestilence and plague of Corona Virus ? I believe this judgment of God has descended upon the world and America because of this sin and others such as abortion which is going on one hundred million babies killed now, and many other sins. You know you can only push God so far until you make him angry, and you don’t want to do that. “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” (Hebrews 10:31). It’s time to wake up and look to Jesus to get right with God and live !
Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen
