    A Study of Numbers

    Numbers 6 By: Jim Crews Numbers 6: 1 - 4 Here God details a special vow that could be made to Him by any one of the Israelites. This is the Nazarite vow. Those who took this vow were to separate themselves from wine and strong drink. They were not to even eat vinegar made from wine or strong drink. They were not to eat grapes or even to drink grape juice. Numbers 6: 5 During the days of this vow, they were not to cut their hair at all. Numbers 6: 6 - 8 During the duration of this vow, they were not to even go near a dead body, whether that dead person was a close relative or not. Their separation during this vow was holy to God. Numbers 6: 9 - 12 If anyone was to die near the Nazarite, he was to shave his head on the day of his cleansing, which was the seventh day. He was also to make an offering of two pigeons or two turtledoves to the priest to atone for his sin of being near the dead body during his vow tenure. He was also to bring a year old male lamb as a guilt offering and begin his vow period from the beginning since the previous period had been defiled and made void. Numbers 6: 13 - 20 When the period of his vow was over, the Nazarite was to bring a sin offering, a burnt offering, a peace offering, and a drink offering to the priest. The Nazarite was then to shave his head at the entrance of the Tabernacle and burn the hair under the peace offering sacrifice. The priest would then make a wave offering on the Nazarite. After this, the Nazarite could drink wine. Numbers 6: 21 This was the law of the Nazarite. If that person made a vow that was above the Nazarite vow, he was to follow both vows. Numbers 6: 22 - 27 God then told Aaron and his sons to bless the people.

    Vol.V No.I Pg.6 March 1968 Is The "Thing" Scripturai? Robert F. Turner "The cause of most of our discomfort is three little insects, about like mites, bedbugs, and cockroaches. Of course our religious pests have different names. I call them binders, bolters, and beggars -- these three, and the greatest nuisance of these is beggars. The binders are the Judaizers who seek to bind where God has not bound. The bolters are those who are too quick to divide the local congregation over matters of personal conduct and difference. The beggars are those professional seekers for funds for institutional enterprises, violating the autonomy of the local churches and bringing us into religious slavery The denominations have built so many lean-tos, sleeping porches, annexes, and servant houses around it that you can scarcely see the church. We have not done that. You can still see the church -- yes, but, confidentially, have you noticed the back yard recently? It is all cluttered up with dog houses, chicken coops, goods-boxes, and enough second-hand lumber to kindle fires the rest of our natural lives --, that is, if all that junk in the back yard is for kindling. Or, did we intend to do some building ourselves? The premises look suspicious. Whatever the purpose of all these materials, a little spring cleaning is needed. Some say that all of this does not touch us. We have no organization except the church. Are we quite sure of that? I know that we have been preaching about organizations larger than the local congregation. We have dwelt so much on it that we have almost run some of these poor insects to death. They have been running in circles, and this is about the path they have followed: First, they have taken refuge under a chip somewhere and said: "We are a business institution, a private enterprise. You cannot bother us." But that sort of plea does not stimulate contributions. People are inclined to take the attitude that if they are a business institution they can just go ahead and attend to their business. So when they have seen the donations falling off, they have come out in the open and said: "We are a church institution, and the churches should support us." Then somebody would begin spraying a little more scriptural shoo-fly about the organizations larger than the local church, and the dodging would begin all over. Finally, they find shelter behind the kitchen sink and say: "We are a religious institution, but we are under the direction of the elders of a local congregation; so the churches should support us through the elders of the church in charge." There is scarcely an institution or enterprise that has not at some time sought the friendly shelter of a local church. We seem to have gotten the idea that local congregations are cities of refuge. If we can just get to a local church before somebody severs an artery with the sword of the Spirit, we will be safe. We have seemingly overlooked the fact that it is not a question merely of who is promoting the thing, but is the thing itself scriptural?" (emph. mine,) ---------- From Article By W.E. Brightwell, Publ. In Gospel Advocate, 1934. (1-68 Torch)

    A Study of Numbers

    Numbers 5 By: Jim Crews Numbers 5: 1 - 4 Those who were deemed unclean, such as lepers, those with a bodily discharge, and those who had become unclean by touching something dead, were to be put outside the camp. This was so that they would not defile the camp. In our local congregations we are to do the same to those who are spiritually unclean. I Corinthians 5: 9 - 13 Numbers 5: 5 - 10 When the Israelites committed a sin and realized it, they were to confess that sin and make restitution. If there were no next of kin and the man sinned against was dead, the restitution was to be paid to the priest. Every contribution that came to the priest belonged to the priest. Numbers 5: 11 - 15 If adultery were committed, or one of the marriage partners thought it had been committed, and there are no witnesses to corroborate it either way, and the husband or wife gets jealous, they were to bring an offering of a tenth of an ephah of barley flour. This was a jealousy offering, and was to be given with no oil or frankincense. This was to bring the sin to remembrance. Numbers 5: 16 - 28 The priest is then given a test to see whether or not adultery was committed. The woman accused was to drink of the water of bitterness and take an oath. If she had committed adultery, she would suffer much pain in the process of this ritual. If she had not, she would not suffer anything and then be free. Numbers 5: 29 - 31 This was to be done if a wife committed adultery, or when a husband got jealous and thought she had. This test would show whether she had or had not been unfaithful.

    Vol.V No.I Pg.5 March 1968 "Academic Convictions" Robert F. Turner FAITH is inward conviction, trust, complete confidence. When the scriptures say, "With the heart man believeth unto righteousness;" -- and we know "heart" refers to the center of thought, emotions, and will -- we may rightly conclude that FAITH involves the intellect. Philip called upon the eunuch to believe "with all thine heart" (Rom. 10:10; Acts 8:37) What hypocrisy is this that allows one to "believe" (?) in God and His ways with one side of the heart, but to hold "mental reservations" or some "academic convictions" with the other side of the heart? Returning praise for praise, the editor of ACTION says, "____ ____ is another of our brilliant young gospel preachers with degrees. He has his "academic convictions" but stands foursquare with the great Shaw Street church in _______ where men of God guide it on to higher ground." His "academic convictions" are here contrasted with ("but") the church. Now if that church is true to God's Word, we have a dangerous contrast indeed. In the same issue, the editor says a solution has been reached to some church division back east; and tells his part in the action thusly: " __________ and I spent almost all night in my room at the DuPont Hotel with the brilliant young preacher who had much to do with this division. We were unable to restrain his academic convictions. Each of us may have similar convictions which conflict with present procedures but all the improvements which might be made, the church as we know it is generally on mighty solid ground and care should be taken of intellectuals who may introduce too drastic changes. There must always be thinking ahead but there is also a danger in running too fast." In both of these cases "academic conviction" seems to be something different from the "old paths" -- something to be held in check until there is a more opportune time. Current practices of "our denomination" seem to be the norm, against which "drastic changes" must not be introduced -- but this is for policy, not for conviction's sake. These "men of God" go right on with their "academic convictions" which differ from their current practices. And this is the voice which cries for greater faith in God, and more of the spirit of Christ, and more personal dedication to the Lord! We have experienced the conflict of "academic conviction" and faith in God's word -- but we never entertained the thought that they could continue to live side by side. We are thankful to God that the difference could be resolved, and faith in God could take the place of the doubts raised while under the spell of university professors. We appreciate the need for understanding, and a willingness to assist; but make no mistake about it; when "academic convictions" differ with God's revealed will, faith has suffered. Conversely, if one has come to know a truth of God not known or practiced by his brethren, it needs to be placed in the open so others may profit thereby. Let us reconsider 1 Cor. 1:18-f.!!
