Numbers 11

The pressure of leading gets too much for Moses so God anoints the 72 leaders with the Spirit to prophecy – hear from God. 70 turn up to the gathering and two stay behind – but God still anoints them because He is full of grace. Moses comment “I wish that all the Lord’s people were prophets and the Lord would put His Spirit on them” – Acts 2 Pentecost means that all the Lord’s people can prophecy (but not all are prophets!) and the Lord puts His Spirit on all – Be baptised in the Spirit and go on being filled!

Psalm 48

The church is the city of God – beautiful in its loftiness and the joy of the whole earth!

Hebrews 9

Jesus is the mediator of the new covenant – promising us an inheritance and like a legal will that requires a death. Christ’s death and bloodshed makes it a reality.
His first coming was so he could die to take away our sin, his future second coming will be to bring fully our salvation!
