Jesus Sends Out the Seventy-TwoKJV
Luk 10:1 After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come.
Luk 10:2 Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly isgreat, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.
Luk 10:3 Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.
Luk 10:4 Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way.
Interesting to see that this was referenced here:
Numbers 11: 24-25
24 And Moses went out, and told the people the words of the LORD, and gathered the seventy men of the elders of the people, and set them round about the tabernacle.
25 And the LORD came down in a cloud, and spake unto him, and took of the spirit that was upon him, and gave it unto the seventy elders: and it came to pass, that, when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied, and did not cease.
God uses groups of seventy (or seventy-two) that he gives incredible power to perform miracles. I like to just sit back and think about existing as a part of one of those groups. Or even seeing one of those groups in action.
Great and Mighty God make my faith great. Make it as if I had been one of the seventy-two that Jesus sent ‘as lambs among the wolves’.
