Great is God’s Faithfulness (Numbers 26-27)

(For accuracy of this transcript, kindly refer to video file or audio file)

One of the main tourist destinations in the United States is Yellowstone National Park, found in the state of Wyoming. And in this park, arguably the top attraction is a famous Geyser, which shoots boiling water sky high into the air. And it’s amazing how consistent this geyser shoot water in the air, is like clockwork. You can count on it once every 1 to 2 hours. This geyser is, like clockwork once in every one or two hours it erupts, it’s guaranteed. In fact, this geyser is so consistent it’s earned the nickname Old Faithful. Something that’s faithful, is trustworthy. You can count on it, it won’t fail, it’s dependable. And that’s faithfulness is one of my favorite attributes of God. As we turn this morning to the Book of Numbers chapter 26-27, we find a clear description of just how great God’s faithfulness is. We pick up our story with ancient Israel, coming to the end of their 40 years wandering in the wilderness. Now we’re prepared for that. Remember all the way back in chapter 20, we saw, it was month one of the final year. So, the past few weeks we’ve been talking about this transition between the older generation and now the new. And the way our text this morning shows the finality of this transition is by repeating in Chapter 26, the way the book began in chapter 1. Remember how chapter 1 started by counting all of the men of Israel. That’s where we get the English title for this book, the Book of numbers. And so, we come to Chapter 26 and with a second census now accounting of all of the men who were alive after 40 years. With this recounting, we see a clear declaration of God’s faithfulness to his people. We’re going to get to the census with my second point.
