Bible Text: Numbers 21:4-9 | Preacher: Paul Cohen | Series: Topical Sermon
Within the book of Numbers we have recorded for us ten different occasions when the Israelites complained about God and His provision. Ultimately their complaints were an outworking of their lack of trust in His ability to save them. On one occasion God responded to their murmurings by sending fiery serpents. These serpents brought judgement upon the Israelites. When the people realised their sin God set the object of their affliction to be raised up for their salvation. So it was many years later when the Son of God was made sin for us and lifted up for our salvation.
