Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them, The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make His face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up His countenance upon thee, and give thee peace. And they shall put My Name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them. (Num. 6:23-27)
God gave Aaron this specific benediction to remind the Israelites that He alone give all blessings and all good gifts. Aaron was to bless the Israelites with this reminder of all of God’s goodness and grace, that He alone would keep them as a strong tower, and watch over them as a Father watches over his children and gives them peace, security, and safety. The Prince of Peace, Almighty God, and our everlasting Father is just and gracious in all His blessings.
Jesus Christ, the Son of God who is God the Son is the instrument of His peace with all who will surrender to Him on His terms. God calls all who are still in rebellion against Him to repent and be born again that they might receive the ultimate blessing of God, a new life in Him by His grace through faith in Him and His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary. He is gracious and saves those who come to Him. Our Father gives every good gift in His time and according to His will and His Spirit saves us and keeps us safely and securely in His arms. As those who are His grow in Him we learn that He alone is Blessed and all blessings come from Him who alone is worthy of all honour and praise for all His bountiful gifts.
God has sent those of us that know Him out into this world to reach the lost that they might be saved from sin. He desires that His people strive to be holy and obedient unto Him that we might minister to those around us who are hurting and in need as He provides. We serve others, equipped with the Word of reconciliation and righteousness, rightly divided and fitly spoken, that they may see Christ in us, the hope of Glory. Our GOD has commanded us to love one another with an unfeigned love, even as He first loved us, and to disciple one another in the Word of GOD so that we may all grow in grace and in the Knowledge of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Our Lord has commissioned those who are His with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to go where He sends us in the power of the Holy Spirit. As we go, we are to proclaim the Good News of forgiveness through repentance and reconciliation with the Father through faith in His Son, that those who believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah of GOD might have life in His Name.
GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to faith in Christ and His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD, forgiveness from GOD, and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
