PERLES SPIRITUELLES - SEMAINE DU 17 Mai 2021 - Nombres 32-33.pdf

 

Perles spirituelles (10 min) : Nombres 32-33

Nombres 33:54 : Comment le pays était-il réparti entre les tribus d’Israël ? (it-1 933 § 6).

« Vous devrez répartir le pays entre vos familles par tirage au sort. Pour un groupe nombreux, vous augmenterez l’héritage et, pour un groupe peu nombreux, vous diminuerez l’héritage. L’héritage de chacun sera là où le sort tombera. Vous recevrez votre terre en héritage selon les tribus de vos pères »

Après que le tirage au sort avait déterminé l’emplacement géographique d’une tribu, il fallait fixer l’étendue de son territoire en fonction du deuxième facteur : sa taille. “ Vous devrez vous répartir le pays en possession, par le sort, selon vos familles. Pour celui qui est populeux, vous augmenterez son héritage ; pour celui qui est clairsemé, vous diminuerez son héritage. Où le sort sortira pour lui, là ce sera à lui. ” (Nb 33:54). Ce que le sort avait décidé concernant l’emplacement géographique approximatif était maintenu, mais on pouvait modifier la taille de l’héritage. Par exemple, quand on s’aperçut que le territoire de Juda était trop grand, on en réduisit la superficie en en attribuant des parties à la tribu de Siméon. — Jos 19:9. - it-1 933 § 6

Le territoire des tribus d’Israël - Jéhovah fixa lui-même les frontières de la Terre promise. Il donna également des directives concernant le partage du pays entre les tribus d’Israël. Les familles reçurent des parcelles de terre précises, et ces parts furent préservées pour les générations futures. Ce qui fut fait dans l’Israël antique illustre le droit souverain que détient Jéhovah d’attribuer des terres aux humains de façon à accomplir son dessein. — it-1 p744

Le déplacement de ce vaste camp d’un lieu à un autre (en Nombres 33, Moïse répertorie environ 40 de ces campements) témoignait aussi d’une organisation extraordinaire. Aussi longtemps que le nuage était au-dessus du tabernacle, le camp demeurait sur place. Dès que le nuage se déplaçait, le camp se déplaçait aussi. “ Sur l’ordre de Jéhovah ils campaient et sur l’ordre de Jéhovah ils partaient. ” – it-1 Camp

Quelles perles spirituelles as-tu tirées de la lecture de la Bible de cette semaine en rapport avec Jéhovah, la prédication ou un autre sujet ?

Avant qu’Israël n’entre en Terre promise, les membres de la tribu de Gad ont demandé l’autorisation de s’installer dans le pays propice à l’élevage qui se situait à l’est du Jourdain (Nombres 32:1-5). En vivant à cet endroit, ils se heurteraient à de sérieuses difficultés. Les tribus qui habiteraient à l’ouest seraient protégées par la vallée du Jourdain, qui constituait une barrière naturelle contre les invasions. Mais, en ce qui concerne les terres à l’est du Jourdain, on lit dans Géographie historique de la Terre sainte (angl.), par George Smith : “ [Elles] s’étendent presque sans aucun obstacle sur le grand plateau d’Arabie. Par conséquent, elles ont de tout temps été exposées à l’invasion de nomades affamés, dont certains les envahissaient chaque année pour y faire paître leurs troupeaux. ”

Comme la tribu de Gad, les chrétiens d’aujourd’hui supportent les menaces et les fardeaux que leur impose le système de Satan ; ils n’en sont pas dispensés par une quelconque protection miraculeuse.  – TG2004  1/6 p14

Josué et Caleb, hommes courageux, ont prouvé que nous pouvons marcher dans les voies de Dieu. Ils ont “suivi Jéhovah sans réserve”. (Nombres 32:12.) Josué et Caleb étaient parmi les 12 hommes envoyés espionner la Terre promise. Par crainte des habitants, dix espions ont essayé de dissuader Israël d’entrer en Canaan. Toutefois, Josué et Caleb ont eu le courage de déclarer: “Si Jéhovah a pris plaisir en nous, alors, à coup sûr, il nous fera entrer dans ce pays et nous le donnera: un pays qui ruisselle de lait et de miel! Seulement, ne vous rebellez pas contre Jéhovah et ne craignez point, vous, le peuple du pays, car ils sont du pain pour nous. Leur abri s’est retiré d’au-dessus d’eux et Jéhovah est avec nous. Ne les craignez pas.” (Nombres 14:8, 9). Manquant de foi et de courage, cette génération d’Israélites n’est jamais entrée en Terre promise. Josué et Caleb, quant à eux, y sont entrés en compagnie d’une nouvelle génération. Parce que Josué et Caleb savaient que Jéhovah prendrait soin d’eux et parce qu’ils écoutaient leur Dieu avec foi, Jéhovah déclara: “Ceux-ci ont suivi Jéhovah sans réserve.” (Nomb. 32:12). Avez-vous la même foi et le même courage dans les derniers jours de ce système ?

Bien que nous soyons, comme Josué et Caleb, des humains imparfaits, nous pouvons suivre Jéhovah sans réserve, et Dieu peut nous donner le pouvoir de marcher courageusement dans ses voies – TG1993 15/11 p14

Qu’étaient les “ hauts lieux ” fréquemment mentionnés dans les Écritures hébraïques ?

Alors que les Israélites s’apprêtaient à entrer en Terre promise, Jéhovah leur demanda de faire disparaître tous les lieux de culte des Cananéens qui y vivaient. Il leur ordonna : “ Vous devrez [...] détruire toutes leurs figures en pierre ; toutes leurs images en métal fondu, vous les détruirez ; et tous leurs hauts lieux sacrés, vous les anéantirez. ” (Nombres 33:52). Ces centres du faux culte étaient probablement des endroits en plein air au sommet d’une colline ou des plateformes construites ailleurs, par exemple sous des arbres ou dans des villes. Ils pouvaient comporter des autels, des colonnes ou des poteaux sacrés, des images, des autels à encens et d’autres objets pour le culte – TG2010  15/8

Jéhovah avait ordonné aux Israélites de faire disparaître de la Terre promise tout ce qui pourrait les amener à lui désobéir (Nb 33:52). Jéhovah bénirait leur détermination à prendre complètement possession du pays (Nb 33:53).

Si les Israélites ne chassaient pas tous leurs ennemis, des problèmes en résulteraient (Nb 33:55, 56)

Aujourd’hui, nous rencontrons des épreuves similaires à celles que les Israélites ont connues. Notre société moderne ne manque pas d’idoles. Ce sont notamment l’argent, les personnalités du spectacle, les vedettes du sport, les systèmes politiques, certains chefs religieux, voire des membres de sa propre parenté. L’un de ces éléments, quel qu’il soit, peut devenir ce qui compte le plus pour nous dans la vie. Le fait d’entretenir une amitié étroite avec des personnes qui n’aiment pas Jéhovah peut nous mener à la ruine spirituelle. – mwb21 mars p21

Nous pouvons comparer notre situation à celle des Israélites dans le désert. Quand ils entendaient les prêtres sonner de la trompette, ils devaient passer à l’action. Jéhovah avait demandé à Moïse de faire deux trompettes en argent martelé « pour convoquer la communauté et pour lever les camps ». Les prêtres sonnaient de la trompette de différentes façons en fonction de ce que le peuple devait faire. Pareillement, aujourd’hui, les serviteurs de Dieu sont guidés de différentes façons. À l’époque de Moïse, Jéhovah a guidé des millions d’hommes, de femmes et d’enfants dans le désert. Sans ses directives pleines d’amour, ils n’auraient pas survécu. Aujourd’hui, les conseils de Jéhovah nous permettent non seulement de survivre spirituellement en ces derniers jours, mais aussi de nous épanouir spirituellement, c’est-à-dire d’avoir une amitié étroite avec lui. Par conséquent, soyons tous déterminés à imiter les Israélites, qui, quand ils entendaient les prêtres sonner de la trompette, passaient à l’action - Nombres chapitre 33TG2020/6 p31

    • An interesting concept, bible discipline. I am struck by the prevalence of ignorance about spiritual discipline on "Reddit." While physical and mental disciplines receive attention, the profound impact of spiritual discipline on a person's physical and mental well-being is often overlooked. Is it possible to argue against the words of the Apostle Paul? When he penned those words in Hebrews 12, he was recognizing that there are moments when an individual must be "rebuked" in order to be corrected. Even Jesus himself established a precedent when he rebuked Peter and referred to him as Satan for failing to comprehend what Jesus had already revealed to the apostles. Did that imply that Jesus had an evil heart? Not at all, it was quite the opposite; Jesus had a loving heart. His need to correct Peter actually showcased his genuine love for him. If he hadn't cared, he would have let Peter persist in his mistaken ways, leading to a fate similar to Judas'. There is a clear emphasis on avoiding the apostate translation and its meaning, yet many seem to overlook the biblical foundation for the reasons NOT to follow the path of the fallen brethren or those with an apostate mentality. Those individuals have embraced the path of darkness, where the illuminating power of light cannot penetrate, to avoid receiving the righteous discipline based on God's Bible teachings. They are undoubtedly aware that this undeniable truth of life must be disregarded in order to uphold their baseless justifications for the unjust act of shunning. Can anyone truly "force" someone or stop them from rejecting a friend or family member? Such a notion would be absurd, considering the fact that we all have the power of free will. If a Witness decides to distance themselves from a family member or friend simply because they have come out as gay, who is anyone within the organization to question or challenge that personal sentiment? It is unfortunate that there are individuals, both within and outside the organization, who not only lack a proper understanding of the Bible but also dare to suggest that God's discipline is barbaric. We must remember that personal choices should be respected, and it is not for others to judge or condemn someone based on their sexual orientation but should be avoided under biblical grounds. No one should have the power to compel an individual to change their sexual orientation, nor should anyone be forced to accept someone for who they are. When it comes to a family's desire to shield their children from external influences, who has the right to challenge the parents' decision? And if a family's rejection of others is based on cultural factors rather than religious beliefs, who can impose religious judgment on them? Who should true followers of Christ follow? The words of God or those who believe they can change God's laws to fit their lives? How can we apply the inspired words of Paul from God to embrace the reality of God's discipline? On the contrary, how can nonconformists expect to persuade those with a "worldview" that their religious beliefs are unacceptable by ostracizing individuals, when God condemns homosexuality? This is precisely why the arguments put forth by ex-witnesses are lacking in their pursuit of justice. When they employ misguided tactics, justice remains elusive as their arguments are either weak or inconsistent with biblical standards. Therefore, it is crucial to also comprehend Paul's words in 1 Corinthians 9:27. The use of the word "shun" is being exaggerated and excessively condemned by those who reject biblical shunning as a form of punishment. Eph 5:3-14 NIV 3 But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God's holy people. 4 Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving. 5 For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person — such a man is an idolater — has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.  6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God's wrath comes on those who are disobedient. 7 Therefore do not be partners with them.  8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light 9 (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) 10 and find out what pleases the Lord. 11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. 13 But everything exposed by the light becomes visible. The impact of the message becomes significantly stronger when we emphasize the importance of avoiding any association with unrighteousness and those who remain unrepentant. In fact, it becomes even more compelling when we witness how some individuals, who dismiss biblical shunning as a method of discipline, excessively criticize and condemn the use of the word "shun". Therefore, Jehovah's Witnesses do not shun people; instead, they choose to focus on the negative actions being committed, which is in accordance with biblical teachings. This should be construed as ex-Witness rhetoric. Now, let's consider why ex-Witnesses specifically target one particular religion. What justifications do they provide when other Christian denominations also adhere to the same principle grounded in the Bible? Chapter 1 - Preface Both must therefore test themselves: the one, if he is qualified to speak and leave behind him written records; the other, if he is in a right state to hear and read: as also some in the dispensation of the Eucharist, according to  custom enjoin that each one of the people individually should take his part. One's own conscience is best for choosing accurately or shunning. And its firm foundation is a right life, with suitable instruction. But the imitation of those who have already been proved, and who have led correct lives, is most excellent for the understanding and practice of the commandments. "So that whosoever shall eat the bread and drink the cup of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup."  It therefore follows, that every one of those who undertake to promote the good of their neighbours, ought to consider whether he has betaken himself to teaching rashly and out of rivalry to any; if his communication of the word is out of vainglory; if the the only reward he reaps is the salvation of those who hear, and if he speaks not in order to win favour: if so, he who speaks by writings escapes the reproach of mercenary motives. "For neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know," says the apostle, "nor a cloak of covetousness. God is witness. Nor of men sought we glory, neither of you, nor yet of others, when we might have been burdensome as the apostles of Christ. But we were gentle among you, even as a nurse cherisheth her children."   (from Ante-Nicene Fathers, Volume 2) Divine promises 2. The manner of shunning, in the word escaping. There is a flying away required, and that quickly, as in the plague, or from a fire which hath almost burned us, or a flood that breaketh in upon us. We cannot soon enough escape from sin (Matt 3:7; Heb 6:18). No motion but flight becomes us in this case. Doctrine: That the great end and effect of the promises of the gospel is to make us partakers of the Divine nature. (from The Biblical Illustrator)  
    • Clearly, they are already demanding your exile. Yes! It's unfortunate that Pudgy spoiled a great discussion about science. I hope the discussion can continue without any more nonsensical interruptions. Just a suggestion since they are on your heels. Wow! You speak! It seems you have a lot to say! Now they are going to treat like, who do you think you are, mister big stuff! Are those aliens now going to imply that anyone who speaks out against the five or six key contributors to this site will be treated as though it is George just because those in opposition speak the language they hate to hear, the TRUTH? They are seeking individuals who will embrace their nonconformist values and appreciate what they can offer in shaping public opinion contrary to the established agenda of God and Christ. Their goal is to enhance their writing abilities and avoid squandering time on frivolous pursuits, mainly arguing about the truth they don't care for. They see it all as a mere game, even when leading people astray. They believe they have every right to and will face no biblical repercussions, or so they believe. They just want to have fun just like that Cyndi Lauper song. Be prepared to be belittled and ridiculed, all the while they claim to be angels. Haha! By the way, please refrain from using the same language as George. They appear to believe that when others use the same words, it means they are the same person, and they emphasize this as if no one else is allowed to use similar grammar. It seems they think only they have the right to use the same or similar writing styles. Quite amusing, isn't it? See, what I just placed in bold, now I'm George, lol! Now, let's leave this nice science thread for people that want to know more about science. I believe George left it at "Zero Distance."  
    • Nice little thread you’ve got going here, SciTech. It would be a shame if something were to happen to it.
    • It's truly disheartening when someone who is supposed to be a friend of the exclusive group resorts to using profanity in their comments, just like other members claiming to be witnesses. It's quite a ludicrous situation for the public to witness.  Yet, the "defense" of such a person, continues. 
    • No. However, I would appreciate if you do not reveal to all and sundry the secret meeting place of the closed club. (I do feel someone bad stomping on Sci’s little thread. But I see that has already happened.)
