A Bad Day for Zimri & Cozbi

Read about how it pleased God to see Phinehas‘ discontent when his God’s name was dishonored in Numbers 25.

  1. …and is there any doubt as to what Phinehas so violently interrupeted?

  2. Smitty,
    I have read that story for the first time, that I can recall, thanks for posting it. I am encouraged and humbled. Christians today are not “zealous” for our Lord and His great name. We sit and listen to all sorts of God-dishonoring talk, watch God-dishonoring programs and never say anything or take a stand. I know I fail at that point so many times. Phinehas sets an example for us all. We should honor our God and His name. We would never let someone trash our wives in front of us, yet we let the name of God be profaned daily.
    I am saying we a lot, mainly I am slamming myself, and I am sure there are others like me.
    And there is no doubt to what Phinehas interrupted!!

  3. Smitty, hey bro, can you add my link on here so I can get some visitors….

    Thanks

  4. woody…once again you hit the nail on the head. That is exactly what I drew from the story as well. I am sooooo tolerant these days. I don’t know what has happened to me. You’re right…Phinehas’ zeal should be an example for all of us to follow. We should stop sitting back and remaining quiet while the world trashes our God’s name and fame.

  5. Thanks for adding me bro!

  6. Woody-
    Your link? I thought that was the UK church plant link, come on get it right 🙂

    Can you actually be over zealous? If your zeal is based upon knowledge then I do not think so, but I am sure someone will disagree.
