Please read Numbers 25-26, and come on back!
“God spoke to Moses: “Phinehas son of Eleazar, son of Aaron the priest, has stopped my anger against the People of Israel. Because he was as zealous for my honor as I myself am, I didn’t kill all the People of Israel in my zeal. So tell him that I am making a Covenant-of-Peace with him. He and his descendants are joined in a covenant of eternal priesthood, because he was zealous for his God and made atonement for the People of Israel” (25:10-13 MSG)
Because Phinehas was zealous for God’s honor, God made a covenant of peace with him. Love for God’s word and truth does create peace in our lives! Reminds me of Psalm 119:165, but let’s read it in my familiar NKJV 🙂
Great peace have those who love Your law,
And nothing causes them to stumble
Nothing causes them to stumble, nothing causes them offense. A great love for God’s word and peace will drive out hate and discord!
