Hanli Liu

Pastor Hanli takes us through an often-unheard-of event during Israel's wanderings in the wilderness. The people ungratefully complained against the LORD and against Moses. For this sin, God sent fiery snakes amongst them which killed many Israelites. Despite Israel's guilt, God mercifully provides a way to be saved from the deadly poison. Moses was to make a bronze serpent and set it on a pole in the middle of the camp. All who were bitten were commanded to look at the serpent and live. Thus, everyone who believed God's promise and looked at the serpent were saved. The Lord Jesus explicitly references this story to teach a vital truth about himself in John 3:14-15: "As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up from the earth, that whoever believers in him may have eternal life." Have you looked to Christ in total faith for the salvation of your soul?
