Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2016 April 21

“And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them, The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace. And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them” (Numbers 6:22-27)

Today’s Morsel:  Many churches still follow liturgy in their service each Sunday.  The minister says the first part and the congregation says the ending.  One of the things about the word of God is that it is designed to encourage.  The Lord wanted His people to know that He desires to bless them.  And so He told the priesthood how to bless them.  He said, “Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them, The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace. And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them.”  We must also note that the priest was to put God’s name upon them so that He could bless them.  John wrote in Revelation 22:1-4: “And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.”   Do you have His name upon you?  The blessings of God and entrance into His kingdom are always associated with His name.

Sing: Blessed be the name of the Lord! Blessed be the name of Lord! Blessed be the name of the Lord, Most High.

Thought For Today: The blessings of God are always associated with His name.
