Moses, Bronze Serpent & Baalam

VERY Edifying Article Below


Bottom Line: The Bronze Serpent Moses made to heal Israel was a Christ-like representation of the coming crucifixion.

John 3:14-18 King James Version (KJV) 14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

This was NOT Idolatry but a test of Obedience of God to see IF Israel would actually obey instructions to "LOOK" at this bronze serpent upon a pole. Those who did were healed while those who didn't, died!

THIS is a pattern put in place for us to follow today. Those who are "LOOKING" at Jesus Christ for their everything will LIVE! Those who are busy "doing them and every body else, will not!

Another VERY Important aspect to this as well is the Perversion of the Bronze Serpent and its pole. The one in Scripture is SINGULAR. However, the Symbol used/known Worldwide has TWO Serpents around the pole-NOT one!

Unfortunately, Israel had indeed Perverted the Original Meaning and made it an idol:

2 Kings 18:4 ►

He removed the high places, and brake the images, and cut down the groves, and brake in pieces the brasen serpent that Moses had made: for unto those days the children of Israel did burn incense to it: and he called it Nehushtan.

What's the Correct Symbol for Medicine?
