Summary: Spiritual snakes that take the joy and happiness of serving the Lord away from us when we are bitten by them

BITTEN BY A SNAKE--NUMBERE 21:1-9

Introduction: Snakes or Serpents are mentioned at least 53 times in the scriptures. Bitten by a snake-what a horrible way to die. It is uncertain as to why these snakes was called "firey." Perhaps it was because of their colors or perhaps it was because of the burning pain that coursed through the blood stream of the one bitten. Verse 6 describes these snakes as poisionous, deadly snakes. Can you imagine living among these snakes? they were all over the place, in grass, in houses, in beds, in pantry, everywhere. Not being able to sleep or eat for fear of snakes.
