Weekly Pursuit – Week 1 of February

Feb 5, 2019 by

Verses:

2 Cor. 11:2 “For I am jealous over you with a jealousy of God; for I betrothed you to one husband to present you as a pure virgin to Christ.”

 

Excerpts:

[In Numbers 5:11-31,] the dealing with a wife over whom her husband was jealous typifies Christ’s jealousy over His believers and His church. We must remember that the church and all the believers have a husband—Christ. We may not be rebellious (leprous), we may be quite self-controlled and restrained (not discharging), and our behavior may be altogether right with both God and man, but as a wife to Christ, are we chaste? To be chaste, a wife should not have any love other than her husband. If a wife appreciates any other man, she is on the verge of losing her chastity.

 

If we are a chaste wife to Christ, we can follow our Husband to fight. David had a fighting wife. In Revelation, Christ’s fighting army is composed of His overcomers, who are a fighting wife to match Christ. In order to be a part of the Lord’s fighting army, we must be chaste. The dealings in the book of Numbers show that the requirement for God’s people to be formed into an army is very high.

 

The church and all the believers should have only Christ as their love. If the church or any of the believers seeks and pursues anything other than Christ, that is spiritual adultery in the eyes of God. Those who commit spiritual fornication will be judged and cursed by God and will not be able to fight for God and serve God. Once we lose our chastity, we lose our ability to fight for God and to serve Him. (Life-study of Numbers, Chap. 7)
