- Rev Chris Roth: Look with Trust- the bronze serpent Num 21
- Living Stream Ministry
When God judged the children of Israel, He actually judged the serpent; the one hanging on the pole was the serpent, not the children of Israel. But praise the Lord, Christ came as our Substitute — He came as the reality of the bronze serpent, and He judged the serpent on the cross. What we need is a Substitute, someone who would be judged on our behalf, and God judged Christ as the reality of the bronze serpent, who came in the likeness of the flesh of sin. Christ, our Substitute, was judged by being identified with us, the people for whom He was substituted.
On the cross therefore we see two substitutions: we as the people who were redeemed by Christ were identified with Satan, and Christ was identified with us, His redeemed people. When we hear the gospel, we realise that we are inwardly serpentine, sinful in nature, and we condemn Satan in us; then, we receive the cross of Christ and believe into Him, and we have eternal life!
Seeing that the Lord Jesus as the reality of the bronze serpent has dealt with Satan, the old serpent, on the cross, we condemn Satan in us, we receive the cross, we believe into the Lord, and we have eternal life by faith! Thank You Lord Jesus for coming as the reality of the bronze serpent to deal with the old serpent and with our serpentine nature.
Lord, we realise that we have been bitten by Satan, the serpent, and we are by nature serpentine, even one with Satan.
The Bronze Serpent (Eternal Reality Series)
Oh Lord, we look to You and we believe into You, the reality of the bronze serpent, for You have come in the likeness of the flesh of sin but without its poison, and You have dealt with sin and with Satan on the cross! Hallelujah, Jesus Christ has terminated Satan, sin, and the flesh on the cross, and we can believe into Him, have eternal life, and live! Christ as the reality of the bronze serpent refers to Him being the reality of the sin offering; we may appreciate the trespass offering more because we can see how many sins we commit, but the sin offering is a great matter.
Sometimes, however, we may think that taking Christ as our sin offering is something theoretical, for we do not have a grasp of what it means for Christ to be the sin offering.
Because Christ is the reality of the bronze serpent, we can day by day enjoy Him and apply Him to our being as the reality of the sin offering. Christ is not only the One who dealt with our sinful nature on the cross, but He is also the sin-dealing life, the life that deals with our sinful nature.
Therefore, we do not only initially enjoy Christ as the reality of the bronze serpent, when we believe into the Lord and realise that we have Him as our Substitute, but we can daily enjoy and apply the Lord to our being as the reality of the sin offering, as the sin-dealing life.
Furthermore, we can also minister Christ as the sin-dealing life to others. If we know that a certain brother or sister has committed some sins, we just need to pray for them and learn, before the Lord, how to minister Christ as the sin-dealing life to them so that they may deal with their sins.
The life of Christ is a life that deals with sins.

May the Lord bring us into such an experience; may we realise that first we need to enjoy and apply the Lord as the sin-dealing life to our being, and then we need to minister Him as the sin-dealing life to others. When we go to others who have sinned, first we need to soften their hardened heart; a person who sins usually has his heart hardened Heb. We need to trust in the Lord that we have the grace with the spirit to soften his hardened heart.
And then, when his heart is softened, the very Christ as life will be actually, really, and richly ministered to him, and this life will operate in him. Just as the proper medicine reaches the sick parts and makes them well, so the ministering of Christ as the sin-dealing life to others will help him to get rid of sins among the saints. Lord Jesus, we take You as our sin offering so that our sin may be dealt with and so that we may minister You as the sin-dealing life to others.
Lord, thank You for dying for us on the cross as our Substitute, as the reality of the bronze serpent; You bore our sin and You terminated sin in our nature. May we day by day enjoy and apply You as the reality of the sin offering, and may we minister You as the sin-dealing life to others.
Amen, Lord Jesus, You are the sin-dealing life, the life that deals with our sinful nature; we want to experience You, apply You, and minister You as such a One! You can go to cart and save for later there. Average rating: 0 out of 5 stars, based on 0 reviews Write a review.
