Reciting Ancestry

The Lord wanted certain men from each tribe to stand with Moses and Aaron as they numbered the children of Israel, “Then Moses and Aaron took these…and they recited their ancestry…As the LORD commanded Moses, so he numbered them in the Wilderness of Sinai” (Numbers 1:17-19).
By such numbering Israel and the world could see that the Lord keeps His promises, for He had told Abraham that his family would become a nation, and so it did.
The Lord has also said that the church is a nation and it shall be greater than all nations, for it shall cover the earth, and so it has.
