The Evolution of Rebellion IV

Review

Psalm 19 has been our foundational text for the past 6 weeks

Rebellion Part III

Rebellion – A spirit of resistance to authority

Revolt against any authority or order

Resisting controls

I Samuel 15:22 – 23 – Saul’s Rebellion

 Witchcraft – Manipulation and control through

conjuring spells and curses

 Idolatry – Is the worship of false gods

Saul’s Rebellion

1. Operated outside his anointing He was a King not a

Priest or Prophet

2. Disobedience – incomplete obedience is

disobedience

 You can’t gain with sacrifice what you loose through disobedience

3. Concerned more about his position than his rebellion

 He didn’t want to loose face in front of his men. That meant more to him than his sin.

4. He forfeited the call because of rebellion

 God will not allow rebellion to remain he must remove it and replace. God’s anointing is lifted.

I Samuel 16:13 – 14

Numbers 12: 1-14 - Miriam and Aaron’s Rebellion

1. Once again they operated outside their anointing – Prophetess and Priest and made themselves Moses’ judge.

2. They challenged Moses’ authority to hear God based on his marriage to the Ethiopian women

3. God will not allow rebellion to remain His presence is lifted, the rebellion is judged and ministry is halted

4. When confession of sin is made and intercession on behalf of the rebellion God restores His anointing and presence

Rebellion Part IV

Numbers 16: 1- 50 – Korah’s Rebellion

2 chapters previous Moses had just finished dealing with the rebellion, doubt and unbelief of the whole nation. The spies had returned and the people choice to believe the evil report as opposed to the good report of Joshua and Caleb.

Numbers 13 &14

God was getting ready to smite the whole nation with an epidemic and wipe them all out and raise up a new nation to operate through and Moses interceded on behalf of their rebellion.

Instead of wiping out the whole nation God would cause the nation to wander in the wilderness until that whole generation was dead except Joshua and Caleb. The 10 spies with the evil report died of the plague.

After hearing their fate the children of Israel decided to go take the land. It was to late being warned not to go they went any way and suffered a great defeat.

It is after all this we pick up in Numbers 16

Verses 1-3 –The resistance

1. They were also seeking to walk outside their anointing and calling – They were ministers of the Tabernacle and they sought to operate as high priests

2. They challenged the established authority using numbers and influence

Verses 4-11 – Moses intercession and reply to Korah

Verses 12-14 – Moses addresses Dathan and the other

Reubenites

1. They murmured against God and became openly

defiant. Insighting the people with deception.

Verses 15 – Moses’ request of God

Verses 16-17 – Moses repeats the challenge to Korah

Verses 18-19 – Korah’s Reponse

1. Korah doesn’t head the instructions but gathers his

censors and the whole congregation against Moses

immediately.

Verses 20-35 - God answers and Moses intercedes
