Numbers 21-25 (The Daily Walk Bible).

John 3:14 “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up.”

Check out “Lift up the Suffering Symbol” by Michael Card. Lyrics below:

“They grew tired of bread form heaven
And of Moses and of God
They longed to live the life of slavery once again
So they muttered and they grumbled
And they whimpered and they whined
With each faithless word, sank deeper into sin

He took the pen of pain once more
To write upon their hearts
The lesson they had been so slow to learn
But writing in the sand
The fiery serpents came to call
With a holy message and a bite that burned

Lift up the suffering symbol
And place it high upon a pole
Tell the children to look up
And be made whole

So Moses made a metal snake
And nailed it to a pole
Sent out the saving word
So they would know
That the symbol of their suffering
Was now the focus of their faith
And with a faithful glance
The healing power would flow

In time the brazen serpent
Became an idol in the land
And they left the living God to worship clay
When they forgot their suffering
Soon true faith had disappeared
So some idolize a brazen cross today

Lift up the suffering symbol
And place it high upon a pole
Tell the children to look up
And be made whole

Lift up the suffering symbol
And place it high upon a pole
Tell the children to look up
And be made whole

Lift up the suffering symbol
And place it high upon a pole
Tell the children to look up
And be made whole

Lift up the suffering symbol
And place it high upon a pole
Tell the children to look up
And be made whole

Tell the children to look up
And be made whole”
