“HE STOOD BETWEEEN THE LIVING AND THE DEAD!”

Numbers 16:41-50
 
As I studied the background of Aaron, I noticed that both Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before God to intercede for the people verses 22-26, 45.
 
Aaron was
A very good man
He was very bold
He was a man of God
He was a type Christ.
 
Here one of God’s anointed priests, a High Priest shielding with his life those who were appointed to die on account of sin verses 48.
 
The spiritual meaning is so much deeper than the literal that we might well see the passage written in light of the finished work of Christ.
 
Consider first of all:
 
I. THAT THE WRATH OF GOD WAS AGAINST THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL BECAUSE OF THEIR PARTICIPATION IN REBELLION AGAINST THE WILL OF GOD VERSES 41-45.
 
As all of us are: Romans 3:10, 23, 5:12, 14, 11:32, Ephesians 2:3.
