Numbers 22:2

2-3 When King Balak[a] of Moab and his people heard how many Israelites there were and what they had done to the Amorites, he and the Moabites were terrified and panicked. They said to the Midianite leaders, “That bunch of Israelites will wipe out everything in sight, like a bull eating grass in a field.”

So King Balak sent a message to Balaam son of Beor who lived among his relatives in the town of Pethor near the Euphrates River. It said:

I need your help. A huge group of people has come here from Egypt and settled near my territory. They are too powerful for us to defeat, so would you come and place a curse on them? Maybe then we can run them off. I know that anyone you bless will be successful, but anyone you curse will fail.

Richard:  This brings up the point of working under God’s anointing and Blessing.  All Unification that have not returned to True Father’s authority need to do so now.  All those who seek a successful marriage should follow God’s way and seek the Blessing of Marriage from the Unification Sanctuary pastured by Hyung Jin Moon.  Ultimately, those who are not adhering to God’s way and doing evil will be destroyed by their own evil doing.

Psalm 55

But what about those people
    who are cruel and brutal?
You will throw them down
    into the deepest pit
long before their time.
    I trust you, Lord!

Richard:  God is true and faithful altogether!

What Is God Going to Do with Exiled Humanity?

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
March 30, 1958

The heavenly principles do not intend to destroy the people. Because this is the way history has flowed, in the last days, there must emerge, among these people, the phenomena in which faith and trust are shattered among the people. This is the time when Jesus comes again. Therefore, I am praying to the Father that there will emerge a group from among this people who can be persecuted on behalf of Christianity in line with the way Heaven has been controlling history.

If the doctrine of the world cannot swallow these people, who are being trifled with before the world fortune, then this people will swallow the world. What must it swallow then? It must swallow the doctrines of the earth. If this people can thereby have the magnanimity to digest the heavenly principles that represent Heaven, then they will dominate the world.

Numbers 3

The Lord said to Moses:

Assign the Levi tribe to Aaron the priest. They will be his assistants and will work at the sacred tent for him and for all the Israelites. The Levites will serve the community by being responsible for the furnishings of the tent. They are assigned to help Aaron and his sons, 10 who have been appointed to be priests. Anyone else who tries to perform the duties of a priest must be put to death.

11-13 Moses, I have chosen these Levites from all Israel, and they will belong to me in a special way. When I killed the first-born sons of the Egyptians, I decided that the first-born sons in every Israelite family and the first-born males of their flocks and herds would be mine.[c] But now I accept these Levites in place of the first-born sons of the Israelites.

Understand the Heart of Jesus

 

Numbers 34

10 The eastern border will begin at Hazar-Enan in the north, then run south to Shepham, 11 and on down to Riblah on the east side of Ain. From there, it will go south to the eastern hills of Lake Galilee,[b]12 then follow the Jordan River down to the north end of the Dead Sea.

The land within those four borders will belong to you.

Ezekiel 1

Whenever the creatures flew, their wings roared like an ocean or a large army or even the voice of God All-Powerful. And whenever the creatures stopped, they folded their wings against their bodies.

No Place for Jesus to Rest

Numbers 22

31 Just then, the Lord let Balaam see the angel standing in the road, holding a sword, and Balaam bowed down.

Richard:  It is a blessing to be able to see where God is going with and through your life.  God does not always work in just the way the we might expect.

Acts 16

25 About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing praises to God, while the other prisoners listened. 26 Suddenly a strong earthquake shook the jail to its foundations. The doors opened, and the chains fell from all the prisoners.

Richard:  God is moving in big ways that we may not know or perceive right now. Continue reading “No Place for Jesus to Rest”

Become an Heir of Jesus

Numbers 24

1Now when Balaam saw that it pleased the Lord to bless Israel, he did not resort to divination as at other times, but turned his face toward the wilderness. 2When Balaam looked out and saw Israel encamped tribe by tribe, the Spirit of God came on him 3and he spoke his message:

“The prophecy of Balaam son of Beor,

the prophecy of one whose eye sees clearly,

4the prophecy of one who hears the words of God,

who sees a vision from the Almighty,a

who falls prostrate, and whose eyes are opened:

5“How beautiful are your tents, Jacob,

your dwelling places, Israel!

6“Like valleys they spread out,

like gardens beside a river,

like aloes planted by the Lord,

like cedars beside the waters.

7Water will flow from their buckets;

their seed will have abundant water.

“Their king will be greater than Agag;

their kingdom will be exalted.

8“God brought them out of Egypt;

they have the strength of a wild ox.

They devour hostile nations

and break their bones in pieces;

with their arrows they pierce them.

9Like a lion they crouch and lie down,

like a lioness—who dares to rouse them?

“May those who bless you be blessed

and those who curse you be cursed!”

Ezekiel 21

1The word of the Lord came to me: 2“Son of man, set your face against Jerusalem and preach against the sanctuary.

Richard:  If we know something is wrong, we have to preach against it.

Pass God’s Will of Loving Christ on to Your Descendants

Numbers 27

1The daughters of Zelophehad son of Hepher, the son of Gilead, the son of Makir, the son of Manasseh, belonged to the clans of Manasseh son of Joseph. The names of the daughters were Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milkah and Tirzah. They came forward 2and stood before Moses, Eleazar the priest, the leaders and the whole assembly at the entrance to the tent of meeting and said, 3“Our father died in the wilderness. He was not among Korah’s followers, who banded together against the Lord, but he died for his own sin and left no sons. 4Why should our father’s name disappear from his clan because he had no son? Give us property among our father’s relatives.”

5So Moses brought their case before the Lord, 6and the Lord said to him, 7“What Zelophehad’s daughters are saying is right. You must certainly give them property as an inheritance among their father’s relatives and give their father’s inheritance to them.

Jeremiah 48

9Put salt on Moab,

for she will be laid wastef ;

her towns will become desolate,

with no one to live in them. Continue reading “Pass God’s Will of Loving Christ on to Your Descendants”

Numbers 18

I give to the Levites all the tithes in Israel as their inheritance in return for the work they do while serving at the tent of meeting.

2 Chronicles 21

In the time of Jehoram, Edom rebelled against Judah and set up its own king. 9So Jehoram went there with his officers and all his chariots. The Edomites surrounded him and his chariot commanders, but he rose up and broke through by night. 10To this day Edom has been in rebellion against Judah.

Libnah revolted at the same time, because Jehoram had forsaken the Lord, the God of his ancestors.11He had also built high places on the hills of Judah and had caused the people of Jerusalem to prostitute themselves and had led Judah astray. Continue reading “Be Loyal to God and Proclaim Jesus”

Cry Out Before God to Know Him

Pastor Hyung Jin Moon and Yeon Ah Lee Moon entered their new residence in Matamoras, PA in a significant ceremony representing the expansion of God’s sovereignty:  https://youtu.be/eYKJHa9HL0M

Numbers 11

28Joshua son of Nun, who had been Moses’ aide since youth, spoke up and said, “Moses, my lord, stop them!”

29But Moses replied, “Are you jealous for my sake? I wish that all the Lord’s people were prophets and that the Lord would put his Spirit on them!” 30Then Moses and the elders of Israel returned to the camp.

Luke 19

20“Then another servant came and said, ‘Sir, here is your mina; I have kept it laid away in a piece of cloth. 21I was afraid of you, because you are a hard man. You take out what you did not put in and reap what you did not sow.’

22“His master replied, ‘I will judge you by your own words, you wicked servant! You knew, did you, that I am a hard man, taking out what I did not put in, and reaping what I did not sow? 23Why then didn’t you put my money on deposit, so that when I came back, I could have collected it with interest?’

24“Then he said to those standing by, ‘Take his mina away from him and give it to the one who has ten minas.’

Richard:  We are not to live cautiously, just surviving and looking out for ourselves only.  We should strive to fulfill the calling that God has given each of us.  This will involve risk, but also reward, and our fellow mankind will benefit. Continue reading “Cry Out Before God to Know Him”
