Comments on the Book of Numbers
The original Hebrew title of Numbers is 'In the Wilderness.' This book gives the numbering and ordering of Israel on their march through the wilderness. God gave directions for their service and warfare as they were on their way to the land of Canaan. All were given their own particular place by God, whether each of the twelve tribes, or whether the Kohathites, Gershonites, or Merarites, the families of the tribe of Levi, who were appointed in caring for the tabernacle and its service. In these details we see a picture of God's great wisdom and care in ordering all the affairs of the lives of His saints and their place in the body of Christ. He is leading us through the world, a world which we find to be a wilderness. A true sense of God's numbering and ordering, and placing us where He sees fit, in whatever service pleases Him, will give us steadfast endurance, whatever others may do.
