The Aaronic Blessing

The Aaronic Blessing (Numbers 6:24–26, NIV)
The Lord bless you
           and keep you;
the Lord make His face shine upon you
           and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn His face toward you
           and give you peace.

Our Lord instructed Aaron and his sons to bless the Israelites with the specific words above.  HE said as the priests spoke these words over the people that HE would put HIS NAME on them!
("So they will put MY NAME on the Israelites and I will bless them. Numbers 6:27)

As believers and receivers of all Christ gave us through HIS SACRIFICE on the cross, we now operate in the office of priests just as Aaron and his sons:
Revelation 1:6
"and has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve his God and Father—to him be glory and power for ever and ever! Amen"

Let us remember to bless others with these beautiful words our LORD gave!  Through the power of the Holy Spirit such anointed words can bring peace, comfort and joy to those with heavy and hurting hearts!!!
