Moses' Benediction

Num 6:22  And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
Num 6:23  Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them,
Num 6:24  The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:

24 The Lord bless you and watch, guard, and keep you;(Amp)

Num 6:25  The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:

25 The Lord make His face to shine upon and enlighten you and be gracious (kind, merciful, and giving favor) to you;(Amp)

Num 6:26  The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

His countenance refers to being face to face spiritually with God, to be in the presence of the LORD.  Emmanuel; God with us. His peace is in his presence and 
he gives grace  to us by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. He brings calm to us and safety . With God all things are possible.

Num 6:27  And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them.

The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; the God of Israel. He is the God of Israel and Jesus is His Son. There is power in the name of Jesus for salvation, for receiving the peace of God and his presence and power. God's adopted children are to speak blessings to the people of God and lead the lost sheep back to the arms of the Lord.  

1Jn 4:2  Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 
1Jn 4:3  And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
1Jn 4:4  Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

Rom 8:14  For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. 
Rom 8:15  For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. 
Rom 8:16  The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 

Rom 8:17  And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. 

Go in His peace.
