Summary: Have we ever considered why the heavens seem to be brass (cold) and the earth iron (hard)? We must welcome the broken and fractured and bring them to an eternal hope.

BROKEN --- FRACTURED --- BE A HOPE GIVER...

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com

WE HAVE BEEN CALLED TO REACH THE BROKEN-FRACTURE INDIVIDUALS AND BRING

THE ANOINTING OF HOPE AND DELIVERANCE ... EVEN IN DIFFICULT TIMES...

BE A HOPE GIVER.

Deuteronomy 28:23 (KJV) And thy heaven that is over thy head shall be brass, and the earth

that is under thee shall be iron.

Deuteronomy 28:23 (NLT) The skies above will be as unyielding as bronze, and the earth

beneath will be as hard as iron.

Deuteronomy 28:23 (MSG) The sky over your head will become an iron roof, the ground under

your feet, a slab of concrete.

BRASS is an alloy of copper and zinc...

Brass was used as fetters... JESUS HAS A PLAN TO BREAK THE FETTERS...

Judges 16:21 (KJV) But the Philistines took him, and put out his eyes, and brought him down to

Gaza, and bound him with fetters of brass; and he did grind in the prison house.

2 Kings 25:7 (KJV) And they slew the sons of Zedekiah before his eyes, and put out the eyes of

Zedekiah, and bound him with fetters of brass, and carried him to Babylon.

BRASS IS A SYMBOL OF INSENSIBILITY AND OBSTINACY.

BRASS WAS ALSO USED AS A SYMBOL OF STRENGTH...

CAN WE REMEMBER BRASS ITEMS IN THE BIBLE?

BRASS WAS USED AS A CURE...

The people had been complaining and griping about everything.

Moses got tired of hearing their constant bickering and backbiting.

GOD WAS ANGRY WITH THE UNGRATEFUL PEOPLE AND SENT POISONS SNAKES TO

BITE AND KILL THE COMPLAINERS...

Numbers 21:4 And they journeyed from mount Hor by the way of the Red sea, to compass the land

of Edom: and the soul of the people was much discouraged because of the way. 5 And the people

spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the

wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread.

6 And the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people

of Israel died. 7 Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken

against the LORD, and against thee; pray unto the LORD, that he take away the serpents from us.

And Moses prayed for the people. 8 And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and

set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it,

shall live. 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.

A BRASS SERPANT WAS MADE AND LIFTED HIGH ON A POLE...

THE SNAKE BITE WAS PUNISHMENT FOR MURMURING AGAINST MOSES AND GOD!

IF ANY PERSON BITEN AND DYING WOULD LOOK TOWARDS THE BRONZE SERPANT THEY

HAD THE ANTEDOTE FOR THE POISON?

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WAS THERE PEOPLE TO STUBBOORN TO LOOK TOWARDS

THE BRONZE SERPANT?

THE BLESSINGS AND THE CRES BECAME A SINFUL TRAP...

THE ISRAELI PEOPLE KEPT THE SERPANT AND CARRIED IT AROUND WITH THEM.

THE BRASS SERPANT WAS A DISTORTION AND A DISTRACTION... THEY LOST FOCUS

ON WHAT WAS REALLY IMPORTANT.
