Bronze Snake


<p>PowerPoint Presentation</p> <p>Jesus the Bronze Snake</p> <p>John 3:14-1514Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, 15 that everyone who believes in Him may have eternal life.2</p> <p>Numbers 21:4-94 and the soul of the people became very discouraged on the way.5 And the people spoke against God and against Moses: Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is no food and no water, and our soul loathes or dislike this worthless bread. 3</p> <p>Exodus 1631 And the house of Israel called its name Manna. And it was like white coriander seed, and the taste of it was like wafers made with honey.4</p> <p>Because of its taste and sweetness, Jesus is the kind of bread you will never get tired of eating. When you have Him, you will always crave for Him.</p> <p>Numbers 116 but now our whole being is dried up; there is nothing at all except this manna before our eyes!The Manna which is a picture of Jesus did not change its the people that changed6</p> <p>Jesus is Our Heavenly MannaIn the Manna is all the provision, all the satisfaction and all the good things one can ask for. </p> <p>6 So the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and many of the people of Israel died. 7 Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord and against you; pray to the Lord that He take away the serpents from us. So Moses prayedShalachto send awayNashakto oppress with intereston a loan</p> <p>8</p> <p>8 Then the Lord said to Moses, Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a pole; and it shall be that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, shall live.9 So Moses made a bronze serpent, and put it on a pole; and so it was, if a serpent had bitten anyone, when he looked at the bronze serpent, he lived.</p> <p>9</p> <p>What did the people ask Moses for God to do? To take away the serpents from them or take away their problems.10</p> <p>Gods answer to the peoples request was not to take away the snakes from them but; to make a bronze snake and set it on a pole and whoever looks at it will live. </p> <p>Gods answer for you today is not to take away your problem but to look at His provisionlook at the cross THE FINISHED WORK OF JESUS.</p> <p>Why bronze snake? Bronze in the Bible is always a picture of judgment. And the bronze serpent on a pole is a picture of Jesus being judged on the cross. </p> <p>Why snake?</p> <p>Because the snake is a picture of curse.In the garden, the snake was cursed. </p> <p>At the cross, Jesus became what we are; </p> <p>so that we might become as He is. </p> <p>The Lord is telling the people not to look at the snake bite, not to look at their situation (being bitten by snakes), 16</p> <p>He wants us to look at the bronze serpent (Jesus), His provision of healing and answer to all their problems. 17</p> <p>The Hebrew word used for look in v.9 is nabatwhich means to look with expectation. </p> <p>In other words when you look to the cross Jesus and His finished work, you are expecting something good to happen to you. </p> <p>Serpent NachashChetShinNunFish (believer)FenceShaddai/Lord</p> <p>Nachash the believer is fenced from the Lord The serpent (Devil) is the one thing that hinders the believer from the Lord.</p> <p>Because of the finished work of Jesus, the Devil can no longer bite (nashak) or oppress you.</p> <p>He can no longer fence or hinder you from receiving your healing, deliverance, and provision for all your needs. </p>
