FIERY SERPENT OF BRASS EVENT
It's a pleasure to have you back with us again at Daily Bread. We're
following Moses along with the children of Israel in their final months in
the wilderness before entering the Promised Land. It's been 40 years now
that they have wandered in the wilderness because of all of their defiance
against God. It is kinda like Fate and Destiny.
Their DESTINY was to get to the Promised Land. Their FATE was their choice to question and test God
which hindered them from getting there sooner and for many of them ... At
News of Israel coming to conquer
had reached Canaan and when king Arad, who ruled in the south, heard of the
spies and that Israel was on it's way, he fought against Israel, and took
some of them as prisoners. God's people made a promise to God that if He
would give them His power, they would totally ruin their cities.
BRASS SERPENT BIBLE STUDY
FIERY SERPENT OF BRASS STORY
The Lord delivered the Canaanites into their hands and Israel prevailed, destroying
them and their cities and Israel called the place Hormah, which means, Utter
As you recall, the last place that
the children of Israel stopped was at mount Hor, where Aaron had died. From
there, the Lord led them south again, all the way down to the Red Sea to go
around the land of Edom. On a map, the area of the Red Sea that is referred
to is called the Gulf of Aqaba. The people were discouraged because of this
route, because it was in the opposite direction of the Promised Land.
The people grumbled against God and
Moses again, Why did you bring us out of Egypt, to die in the wilderness?
There's no bread or water, and our people hate this light bread (manna). So
the Lord sent fiery serpents among them and they bit the people, and many
people of Israel died.
BRASS SERPENT BIBLE PUNISHMENT
FIERY SERPENT OF BRASS EXPLAINED
Now, what does this mean ...
Fiery serpent? It could mean that they were made of fire, or they could
have been a fiery red. It could mean that they were easily provoked, that
their bite caused a burning sensation, or that they were inflamed, big huge
snakes. In any case, it must have been a horrifying thing!
Oh, you bet the people came running
to Moses again, saying, We've sinned, we objected to the Lord and you. Pray
to God that He takes away these serpents from us. So Moses did pray for the
The Lord told Moses, Make you a
fiery serpent and set it up on a pole and whenever anyone is bitten, when
they look at it, they'll live. Moses made a serpent of brass and put it on
a pole and it happened just as the Lord said, and the people who were
bitten, when they looked at the serpent of brass, they lived.

FIERY SERPENT OF BRASS SONG
Numbers 21:10-16 tells the cities
that the children of Israel journeyed on their way around Edom. When they
got to Beer, which means, A well, the Lord told Moses, Gather the people
together and I'll give them water. They were so happy they sang this song:
Spring up, O well;
sing ye unto it:
The princes digged the well,
the nobles of the people digged it,
by the direction of the lawgiver, with their
From Beer they went to Mattanah,
then to Nahaliel, then to Bamoth, then to the top of Pisgah. Then Israel
sent messengers to Sihon, the king of the Amorites saying, Let me pass
through your land. We won't pass through the fields or through the
vineyards or drink the water from the well. We'll stay on the kings highway
and not wander from it until we have passed your borders.
BRASS SERPENT BIBLE UNDERSTANDING
FIERY SERPENT OF BRASS NOT TO BE FORGOTTEN
But Sihon wouldn't allow Israel to
travel through his land Now, remember the king of Edom refused Israel
passage so they went all the way around Edom. They weren't about to go all
the way around the land of the Amorites, and God was pretty fed up by
Sihon's refusal, so Israel destroyed the Amorites with the edge of the sword
and took possession of his land from Arnon to Jabbok.
They conquered all the way to the land of Ammon, because the children of Ammon, at the border,
were strong. Israel took all the cities of the Amorites in Heshbon and all
the villages of it. (Sihon had won the land of Moab when he formerly fought
with Ar, the king of Moab, and took all the land up to Arnon.
Here's a little Daily Bread crumb
for you. In
Numbers 21:27, it says, Wherefore they that speak in proverbs
say, Come into Heshbon, let the city of Sihon be built and prepared: ...
Well, Solomon wasn't born yet so it wasn't him who wrote this proverb, but
just as today, we hear historical stories through songs, they had ballad
tellers back then too. If you'd like to read the rest of the ballad, or
proverb, it continues through Verse 30.
BRASS SERPENT BIBLE WARNING
FIERY SERPENT OF BRASS BLESSING
So Israel stayed in the land of the
Amorites and Moses sent spies out to Jaazer and they conquered their
villages and drove out the Amorites that lived there too. Then they headed
in the direction of Bashan, and Og who was one of the last of the giants,
went out to battle against Israel with all his people in Edrei.
The Lord told Moses, Don't be
afraid of him. I'll give you victory over him and his people and his land,
and you'll do the same to him as you did to Sihon. So Israel defeated Og
and his sons and his people until there were none left alive, and they
possessed his land.
With the conquest of Canaan still
before them, the children of Israel are getting a little bit of battlefield
training. When the Lord is with you, the physical part is effortless, He
takes care of it all. If we don't fight with Him, He will fight for us,
just ask the children of Israel.
