Power in Numbers

  • Ephesians 1:22

 God placed all things under Messiah’s feet and appointed Him as head over all things for His community—


Let's dissect this verse and get a little spiritual anatomy and physiology lesson! 

 

First, we need to make some connections to what different body parts represent in us and how they fit together with the picture Paul is trying to paint for us. 

 

In Proverbs 6:16-19, we learn that there are 6 things Adonai hates, and 7 are an abomination to Him. The 5th abomination is feet that run quickly to evil.  Those feet are running in opposition to the 5th Spirit of Power that makes up a part of the Holy Spirit in Isaiah 11:1-2. Messiah’s feet would be running in the power of the Holy Spirit to do His will throughout the earth.  

 

Heels can represent our desires and emotions. When we aren't in line with the Spirit, we end up being ruled by our emotions and desires instead of being led and ruled by Him. 

 

The head represents our spirit and is interestingly our closest body part to heaven.  If our head is not fully dedicated to the work of the Holy Spirit, our body will not walk in His power or His Spirit. 

 

Ok, now that we have our spiritual anatomy out of the way, let's tackle our spiritual physiology.

 

In Ephesians 2:21-22, Paul is explaining that each of us are being used in a specific way to build up God’s tabernacle in the Spirit.  Much like the Levites in the wilderness, each family had a specific duty when handling and moving the Tabernacle throughout the wilderness (Numbers 3.)  Each family was needed in order to move and function; one was not more important or less than the other.

 

When we join forces with Yeshua as our leader, there is great power! 

 

If we look at the spring feasts versus the fall feasts, we can see a slight variation in how they affect us on a personal and corporate scale.  The spring feasts deal with Israel on a smaller, individual scale, while the fall feasts deal with Israel on a national level.  When we are able to overcome and die to our flesh, we come to the point where we are ready to learn how to work with others.

 

After the Israelites had come out of Egypt and received the Torah, they had to come together and assemble the tabernacle, while learning what it was like to let go of their flesh and serve Adonai in holiness and righteousness. 

 

Each tribe had a specific placement in the camp and every ancestral family in the Levites had a particular job to do when it came to packing, moving, and setting up the tabernacle while they were in the wilderness. However, not everyone was satisfied with their assignment.  

 

Remember Korah?

 

He was a descendant of Kohath, Levi’s 2nd son, and the Kohathites were the clan that had the responsibility of moving the most Holy things when it was time to move in the wilderness (Numbers 4:4).  Even though that responsibility was such a huge blessing, it just wasn’t enough for Korah.  

 

He believed that all of Israel was holy and should be able to serve as High Priests. Although Adonai clearly placed Aaron in the High Priest position, Korah felt Moses put Aaron there on his own accord to elevate himself and Aaron above the community. He rebelled against Adonai by rebelling against the head that He had placed over Israel (Numbers 16:1-40.)  

 

Moses certainly wasn’t THEE Messiah, but he was a humble and willing vessel Adonai anointed to carry out His plans and purposes. Do you think Korah truly wanted to serve Adonai, or was he wanting to serve himself by serving Adonai in a way that made sense to him? 

 

Because Korah, Dathan, and Abiram had despised Adonai, the earth opened up and swallowed them, their households, and their possessions.  They went down to Sheol alive and were gone from among their people, Israel (Number 16:30-33).

 

So how do we avoid rebellion?

 

Aaron, the High Priest, was to wear a turban that covered his head with a gold plate that said, “Holy to Adonai (Numbers 28:36-37).  Similarly, in Ephesians 6, Paul tells believers to put on the helmet of salvation as part of the armor of God.  What exactly is salvation?  Yeshua!  

 

When we place Yeshua as the head of our thoughts, our speech and our actions will follow suit! 



  • Ephesians 4:15-16

'Instead, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all ways into Messiah, who is the Head. From Him the whole body is fitted and held together by every supporting ligament. The proper working of each individual part produces the body’s growth, for building itself up in love.'



There are so many different jobs to be done and He has an important job for each of us! None of us are less important than any of our peers.  Our desires and emotions will not be able to overtake us when our focus is on Him. 

 

We may fall and fumble around like a toddler learning to walk, but when we get back up, repent, and keep on walking in this journey of life, we learn how to become a vessel for His sacrificial love.  

 

There is power in numbers; coming together for His purpose!  His presence was a powerful force!  The nations heard of what Adonai had done for Israel and they trembled (Joshua 2:9-11)! He is waking up His people all over the globe, and we must be an example of how to walk and function as a priest in His kingdom.  The fall feasts have yet to be fulfilled, but it will take all of us coming together in love as one to truly overcome the beastly nature in each and every one of us.  Don’t allow your flesh to get in the way of His calling and purpose for your life!  



  • Matthew 10:28

'And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Instead, fear the One who is able to destroy both soul and body in Gehenna. '



With Yeshua as our head, we can walk confidently knowing that any adversity can be under our feet if our focus stays on Him and the job He has placed before us!



Be pressed and be blessed!

  • 1 Corinthians 6:19

'Or don’t you know that your body is a temple of the Ruach ha-Kodesh who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? '

 

  • Ephesians 4:4

'There is one body and one Ruach , just as you also were called in one hope of your calling;'

 

  • Ephesians 4:11-12

‘He Himself gave some to be emissaries, some as prophets, some as proclaimers of the Good News, and some as shepherds and teachers— to equip the kedoshim for the work of service, for building up the body of Messiah.'

 

  • Colossians 1:17‭-‬20

He exists before everything, and in Him all holds together. He is the head of the body, His community. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead— so that He might come to have first place in all things. For God was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in Him and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, making peace through the blood of His cross— whether things on earth or things in heaven!
