Verses 14 and 15.
We could ask this question: why did Moses lift up the serpent in the wilderness?
May I remind us of Numbers 21?
The Hebrews had sinned.
Perhaps you would ask what was their sin? Let’s see.
5 And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread.
6 And the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died. source
But The LORD did not leave them in that state of death; He made a way for them to live. BUT they had to choose to live.
8 And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live.
9 And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived. source
Now we see.
JESUS was lifted up for mankind to look to when bitten by sin (the serpent – and we ALL have been bitten) so anyone who looks and places trust in the ONE, the ONLY LORD JESUS lifted up for their sin, they will be saved.
Verse 16. Who can look? Who can be saved? Probably the most well-known verse in the Bible tells us.
16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his only and unique Son, so that everyone who trusts in him may have eternal life, instead of being utterly destroyed. source
Anyone who will TRUST HIM.
But what are we trusting HIM for?
That His being lifted up as the SINLESS SACRIFICE for we the SINFULL is enough to save even me, even you.
Can you believe that?
IF Holy Spirit is speaking to you, you can.

Do you want the Father to meet your needs in a supernatural way?
Then you have to say NO to Satan’s way of meeting your (legitimate) needs.
Look at the hardness of Herod’s heart. To keep his place of power he is willing to KILL a child.
Unsaved powerful people have not changed.
They will still kill to hold on to their power.
There are many things the people of this time need to accept, one of those things is the Total Depravity of Unregenerate Men and Women.
We need to forsake the idea that all people are basically good; that there is something good in everyone.
Jesus did not go around telling people how good they were. Because Jesus NEVER lies.
The Bible tells us there is none good but GOD. Matthew 19:17
We call each other good BY OUR STANDARDS, not GOD’s.
It is this fallacy that mankind is good that has engulfed the whole world at this time.
It is this fallacy that has deceived us.
It is this fallacy that has driven us to believe Big Pharma and the Healthcare Industries (and yes the Government) are doing all things for our health and well-being.
To the majority, it is inconceivable that people in power would KILL to keep power or gain MORE power.
And let us not forget to get rich. Yes. Rich. Filthy filthy filthy rich.
And they are — at the expense of the People who believe they care for us.
(Does this mean there are no caring people in healthcare facilities? Of course not!)
O how deceived and foolish is mankind without the washing of The Word for our MINDS.
Without Holy Spirit interpreting and teaching us His Scripture we believe lie after lie after lie.
BUT with GOD, HE does mighty works IN and THROUGH us that brings forth HIS GOODNESS in this world!

John 21:19 Complete Jewish Bible 19 He said this to indicate the kind of death by which Kefa would bring glory to God. Then Yeshua said to him, “Follow me!” source
I wonder if Peter remembered this at the close of his life?
We don’t know with absolute certainty the physical manner in which Peter died but this we do know – his death brought Glory to GOD. Research Links 1 and 2
However or whenever my death arrives, I pray my Father GOD will be glorified so much so that someone else is rebirthed into His Kingdom. Not that I am an Apostle, nor in any measure such a saint as Peter; even so I pray I too will bring Glory to GOD in my living and my dying.
How easy it is for our flesh to hear what it wants to hear.
But Yeshua knows.
