In this last message of the series, we learn that we are a victorious people. Though there is one more tragic rebellion and setback for the people of Israel, the end of the book of Numbers points forward to the ultimate victory which the Lord would gain for His people: our liberation from sin and death through faith in Jesus Christ.
The last rebellion in the book of Numbers saw the people of Israel engaging in idolatry. Idolatry is at the heart of all sin and remains a danger, even for followers of Christ. May we see the Lord as more glorious, more good, more praiseworthy, and more desirable than anything else in the world… because nothing else compares!
