Looking at the story of Moses and the bronze serpent, you understand the simplicity, yet profound of the message of salvation. John 3:14-19 says “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him may have eternal life…” The children of Israel rebelled against the LORD, serpents began to bite them, and they began to die. God instructed Moses to erect a bronze serpent, and anyone who is bitten by a real serpent who comes to look up to the bronze serpent will be healed.

When God singles you out it means He is focusing on ONLY you. There are many “only you,” situations in scriptures. For example, there were many widows during the 3½ year famine in Israel, but Elijah was sent to assist only the widow of Zarephath; there were many lepers in Israel during the time of Elisha, but only Naaman the Syrian army was healed (Luke 4:25-27 [AMP]). John 5:5-6 records the story of a man who was sick for 38 years; there were multitudes at the pool of Bethesda, but when Jesus came on the scene, only him was healed.

How do people know when God takes away the shame?
The testimony that we are believing God for will be seen. For a woman that has been tagged barren, her pregnancy will be visible for all to see, as a sign that something has happened. The Bible says that God should give us a token for good so that those that hate us will see that God has helped us and be ashamed (Psalm 86:17).

One of the reasons God made this statement is to extract gratitude from you. Most of the things that happen to us, we take for granted. We freely breathe in and out; if He was to charge you for that breathe of fresh air, you will appreciate Him more. You open your eyes and can see, you can walk, you can eat and digest, you sleep and wake-up, you take everything for granted and you don’t even say ‘Thank You Jesus!’ it is when you get to the hospital that you will really appreciate the grace of God.

The similarity between the hunter and the treasure is that both of them can be in the rough – They can both be hidden e.g. the diamond in the rough, the hunter in the rough, and treasure in the rough all need polishing.

God’s original purpose for us can be found in Genesis 1:26-28, where God created man in His image and likeness; and gave man DOMINION over the creatures, and He said be fruitful, multiply and replenish the earth. Statistics shows that human beings give birth to children and animals give birth to their young every day. This covenant of multiplication cannot be truncated because Isaiah 9:7 says “of His kingdom there shall be no end.”

In recent times, we have looked at the characteristics of Agape love and we learnt that it is sacrificial, not selfish, there’s a commitment, and it is a decision. One Scripture is so important when you are looking at the characteristics of Agape Love, 1 John 4:19 which says “We love Him because He first loved us.”

Places are special, and God cares about it. From Scriptures, we discover that God divinely appoints specific things to happen at chosen locations. A place has a role in launching someone into his/her destiny. If someone is not guided by the Holy Spirit to be in the right place, the purpose of God for his/her life might be delayed, detoured or truncated.

We are entering the season of Christmas where we see God manifesting His glory in an impossible situation and doing what has never been done before. When Mary who was a virgin was told by an angel that she will bear the Son of God, she said ‘how can this things be’ (Luke 1:35).

One of the ways one can receive the reward of the righteous without doing anything to deserve it is when you experience the favour and love of God. There are various types of love – logical, Eros, Philia, Philautia, etc. There is also agape love – which is the kind of love God has towards us. Agape love involves a decision, it is sacrificial and unconditional.
