Learning From The Past

Numbers 22:1-41
Learn from the past. In 2 Peter 2:15-16, Jude 11 and Revelation 2:14, we are encouraged to learn from the events of this chapter. Each passage contains a warning. (a) 2 Peter 2:15-16 – Don’t leave ‘the straight way’ and follow the crooked way! (b) Jude 11 – Don’t let making a profit become more important than being a prophet! (c) Revelation 2:14 – Make sure you don’t get drawn away from God into sin! What is God saying to us here? – ‘these things happened… as a warning… they were written down for our instruction… let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall’. With the warning, there is also the promise: ‘…God is faithful, and He will not let you be tempted beyond your strength, but with the temptation will also provide a way of escape…’(1 Corinthians 10:11-13).
