Numbers 21:10-17, Now the children of Israel moved on and camped in Oboth. 11 And they journeyed from Oboth and camped at Ije Abarim, in the wilderness which is east of Moab, toward the sunrise. 12 From there they moved and camped in the Valley of Zered. 13 From there they moved and camped on the other side of the Arnon, which is in the wilderness that extends from the border of the Amorites; for the Arnon is the border of Moab, between Moab and the Amorites. 14 Therefore it is said in the Book of the Wars of the Lord: “Waheb in Suphah, The brooks of the Arnon, 15 And the slope of the brooks That reaches to the dwelling of Ar, And lies on the border of Moab.” 16 From there they went to Beer, which is the well where the Lord said to Moses, “Gather the people together, and I will give them water.” 17 Then Israel sang this song: “Spring up, O well! All of you sing to it.” (NKJV)
In this sermon, we see the journey through the wilderness and how each place that the Israelites went to had a spiritual significance. They move to Oboth, which means a place of water skins, then they go on to Ije Abraim, a place of ruins. Then on to Zered, a place of potential exuberant growth, then on to Arnon, the place of rushing stream. Finally, they arrive at a place where God says He is going to give them water. That water is what produces life, revives us, and causes us to be strong in the wilderness!
It’s time for the warriors to arise and to fulfill their election and to take the harvest. It's time for us to call forth that which is not, as if it were!
