I. THERE HAVE BEEN SOME SAD DAYS IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD, THE CHURCH AND THE

FAMILIES.

A. GOD'S JUDGMENT IS SURE... ONE MAN-EVENT CAN MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE...

B. God desires to have a HEDGE BUILT AROUND HIS PEOPLE...

Ezekiel 22:30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand

in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.

C. Often times there comes LARGE GAPS in the HEDGE OF GOD'S PROMISES AND BLESSINGS...

One PERSON can make a difference and TURN AWAY THE WRATH OF GOD FROM MEN...

D. Many times in history God looked in vain for anyone who would build again the wall of righteousness

TO STAND AND TAKE THE LEADERSHIP TO INFLUENCE SINFUL HEARTS TO COME TO GOD'S

HOLY STANDARD.

II. JEREMIAH, THE WEEPING PROPHET HAD HOPE... WAS GIVEN SOME STRICT ORDERS...

JEREMIAH GET OUT IN JERUSALEM AND RUN UP AND DOWN THE STREETS OF THE CITY...

WHILE YOU ARE RUNNING LOOK FOR AN INTERCESSOR.

A. PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW AND RESPECT GOD'S LAWS AND RULES...

when people fail God they need some leaders to pick up the TORCH AND RUN WITH IT...

Jeremiah 5:1 Run ye to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem, and see now, and know, and seek in the

broad places thereof, if ye can find a man, if there be any that executeth judgment, that seeketh the truth;

and I will pardon it.

B. When God can find INTERCESSORS TO STAND IN THE GAP AND MAKE A HEDGE OF

PROTECTION... JUDGMENT IS LESSENED...

III. IT APPEARS OFTEN TIMES INTERCESSORS ARE CALLED TO RUN...

A SENSE OF URGENCY... GRAB THE CENSER...

A. SIN AND REBELLION WAS IN THE CAMP...

B. A CENSER WAS A VESSEL THAT INCENSE FROM THE GOLDEN ALTAR WAS CARRIED IN...

It had burning coals of incense, sent a sweet smelling cloud upward...

Numbers 16:47 And Aaron took as Moses commanded, and ran into the midst of the congregation;

and, behold, the plague was begun among the people: and he put on incense, and made an atonement

for the people.

[48] And he stood between the dead and the living; and the plague was stayed.

B. 14,700 DIED IN ONE DAY, BUT WHAT IF THE RUNNING OF THE CENSER HAD BEEN DELAYED?

C. WILL SOME ONE RUN WITH THE CENSER TODAY?

IV. THE FIERY SERPENT WAS A TYPE OF INTERCESSION...

A. THERE CAME GREAT JUDGMENT IN THE CAMP OF GOD'S PEOPLE...

They had been murmuring and complaining against MOSES and against God.

B. GOD ALLOWED A GREAT MULTIPICATION OF DEADLY POISONOUS SNAKES TO INFEST

THE CAMP OF GOD...

C. The hedge of protection was dropped...

MANY PEOPLE OF GOD DIED ... THERE WAS NO CURE ONCE BITEN...

Numbers 21:9 And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass,

that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.

D. MOSES WAS GOD'S MAN AND HE INTERECEDED TO GOD... RAISE UP A STANDARD...
