To learn more about the Nazirite vow, here is a message preached on the subject:
In Numbers 6:22-27 God taught how the priests would put the blessing of the LORD on all the people. God’s principles have not changed; we need to speak, decree, and proclaim God’s blessing into people.
There is more that could be said here, but let me just give a very basic overview of what God wanted said to the people.
Reading through these lists gives further proof that the history recorded in the Bible is not paraphrased after-thoughts from someone, but the facts are well documented and carefully preserved. Even though you may not remember all the numbers and names recorded in chapters 1-4, keep in mind 2 Timothy 3:16: “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” All of God's Word will build faith in us as we read and meditate on it.
