Title: When the Cloud Moves
Text: Numbers 9:15-23
Topic: Following God into the Prophetic Future
Teacher: David Gooding
The Children of Israel took many missteps. They were often stubborn and stiff-necked but one thing they always seemed to get right: when the cloud moved, they moved.
The opposite was true also: if the cloud stayed over the Tabernacle, Israel remained camped. The presence of God among them was the defining characteristic of this people, so staying in step with God was pretty important.
This short, and very repetitive, story from Numbers 9 might hold something helpful for us in the church today also: if God is on the move, we should follow His lead!
