Day 200 - Num. 1, Verses 17-End

V. 17-46 But now every man in every tribe is carefully questioned as to his family ancestry. We hope you are able to say "I belong to the family of God". We are brought into a new family, and are happy to read that we are now "of the household of God". Eph. 2:1919Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; (Ephesians 2:19) (Our own "wilderness" journey begins when we are born again.) Twelve tribes have been examined. In this list Joseph's two sons are included.
V. 47-54 One tribe was numbered separately. The Levites were in charge of the tabernacle. They took it down, they put it up, and they guarded it by putting their tents all around it. What care and detail! So we may say that these people were warriors...worshippers...workers. So are we.
