JOHN 3:14 LIFTED UP
« on: July 22, 2019, 02:38:07 pm »
John 3:14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

 3:15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

Numbers 21:8 And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live.

 21:9 And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.

 It may well be that Jesus was speaking of being lifted up on the cross as Moses lifted up the serpent upon a pole. The people of Israel spoke against God and Moses so the Lord sent serpents against the people and many died. Whoever looked upon the serpent of brass lived just as whosoever looks upon Jesus and believes in him shall not perish.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

John 20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

 These passages were given to Israel, but just as they, we have to believe on Jesus to be saved. Israel was condemned by not believing in the name of Jesus as the Christ, the Son of God; nothing was as yet revealed of the redemption for all in the cross.

These verses seem to be very strange to me...something is out of fit. A serpent as a symbol for Christ is just weird....but it sure looks like it so far, sigh.

Yes, I remember when I first read that I thought it was odd to use a serpent to save the people who looked upon it. Perhaps because God sends serpents to punish and the serpent was in the Garden etc.
Hearing, believing and trusting the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross; His death, burial and resurrection for the forgiveness of sins, the gospel of our salvation, and repenting, seals us with that Holy Spirit of Promise. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise. 2 Peter 3:9 KJV - 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV - Ephesians 1:10-14 KJV - Romans 10:9-10 KJV - Romans 10:13 - Romans 10:17 - Ephesians 1:7 KJV - Colossians 1:14 KJV -

Hello
I think it can be understood by this verse
2 Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
