A Pleasant Surprise
As I was reading the Book of Numbers, I was pleasantly surprised by an
insight the Lord gave me. It concerned the death of Aaron, Israel’s
first high priest. The account reads this way:
… the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “Aaron will be
gathered to his people. … Get Aaron and his son Eleazar and take them up
Mount Hor. Remove Aaron’s garments and put them on his son Eleazar, for
Aaron will be gathered to his people; he will die there” (20:23-26).
the surface, this may seem clear cut; something not requiring deep
thought. Indeed, this is how I viewed this text for almost three decades
… until reading it on this particular day. What was so insightful this
time? The answer is, for the first time I saw in it a perfect picture of
death and the Christian.
