Verses:

Num. 6:24-26 “ Jehovah bless you and keep you. Jehovah make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. Jehovah lift up His countenance upon you and
give you peace.”

 

Excerpts:

The blessing in Numbers 6 is the eternal blessing of the Triune God. Referring to the Father, verse 24 says, “Jehovah bless you and keep you.” The Father blesses us in every way and in every aspect in His love, and He keeps us in every way and in every aspect in His power. We should pray for the blessing of being kept absolutely in the dispensing Triune God and altogether outside of the evil one.

 

The second part of the blessing says, “Jehovah make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you.” The word face signifies presence. God’s incarnation was the shining of His presence. Along with this shining there was grace. For the Lord to be gracious to us means that He is continually grace to us.

 

The third part of this blessing says, “Jehovah lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace”(Num.6:26). The face denotes the presence of the person, and the countenance denotes the expression of the person. Jesus came as the face of God, and the Holy Spirit comes as the countenance of God. If we grieve Him, His countenance will drop. If we obey Him, He will be happy with us, and He will lift up His countenance to confirm us, assure us, guarantee us, promise us, and give us everything.

 

The Father blesses, the Son shines, and the Holy Spirit lifts up His countenance. When the Triune God is dispensed into us, we have the face of the Triune God and also His countenance. Eventually, we are kept in the Triune God, the Triune God becomes grace to us every day, and we have peace. (Life-study of Numbers, msg. 11)
