"A CITY OF REFUGE" PART ONE

Scriptural reference: Exodus 21:12-14; Numbers 35:9-11; Deuteronomy 19:1-10; Joshua 20

Exodus 20:13 You shall not murder.

Law- A life for a life

Yahweh’s purpose for Cities of refuge:  To prevent the shedding of innocent blood.

Genesis 4:9  Then the Lord said to Cain, “Where is Abel your brother?” He said, “I do not know; am I my brother’s keeper?” 10And the Lord said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood is crying to me from the ground. 11And now you are cursed from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. 12When you work the ground, it shall no longer yield to you its strength. You shall be a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth.”

“Refuge”-a place of shelter, safety, or protection.

Yahweh is our refuge

Psalm 91:2: 18:2; 62:7

 

He has prepared a place of refuge.

Joshua 20:1-6”

“Manslayer”-

 

 

“Avenger of blood”-

 

 

Justice is Yahweh’s nature.

Proverbs 21:15 When justice is done it brings joy to the righteous, and terror to the evildoer.

Illustration: Justice is in our DNA- King David; 2 Samuel12:1-14

 

The Rabbi’s studying the Law of Moses found 613 truth’s to be kept; God condensed that down to three;

Micah 6:6-8

 

Hosea 6:6

Matthew 9:13 (Yahshua quoting Hosea 6:6)

Matthew 23:23

 

Yahshua, our hope, is a refuge.

Hebrews 6:18,19

Hope of salvation.

“salvation”- giving up your right to rule yourself and surrendering to the governmental rule of God led by the Spirit.

Hope of eternal life.

 

Hope for Justice and Truth

Isaiah 59:14-21
