SORT BY Relevancy
The second census of the Israelites is done in this chapter. In verses 64 and 65, it says:
"Not one person on this list had been among those listed in the previous registration taken by Moses and Aaron in the wilderness of Sinai. For the Lord had said of them, "They will all die in the wilderness." Not one of them survived except Caleb son of Jephunneh and Joshua son of Nun.
The first census represented a generation that could have gone into the Promised Land but refused to walk in faith. God still accomplished His will but with a whole new generation that had a new mindset.
New and updated data made available by the Census Bureau informs us that there's been a shift going on in our nation.
The Census Bureau is now including information on same sex couples who are married with a license.
In a recent article from the U.S. Census, the number of legally married same-sex couple households increased from approximately 182,000 in 2012 to approximately 252,000 in 2013.
It's high time for the Bold Believers to come together and take a stand to get as many souls set free and minds transformed and renewed through The Love of Christ!

God is preparing to move His people into the Promised Land, and the first step He takes is to take a census. God organizes the people, which will make it easier for them to gather for battle as well as keep their stay in the wilderness orderly.
Overview of Numbers: At this point it has been about a year since they left Egypt. God's intention is to lead them directly into their land of Promise. But the people rebel and disobey. This book covers 38 years, as the Israelites wander in the wilderness literally to wait until the disobedient generation dies off.

The Levites, however, were not numbered among them by their fathers’ tribe. For the Lord had spoken to Moses, saying, “Only the tribe of Levi you shall not number, nor shall you take their census among the sons of Israel. But you shall appoint the Levites over the tabernacle of the testimony, and over all its furnishings and over all that belongs to it. They shall carry the tabernacle and all its furnishings, and they shall take care of it; they shall also camp around the tabernacle. So when the tabernacle is to set out, the Levites shall take it down; and when the tabernacle encamps, the Levites shall set it up.
But the layman who comes near shall be put to death. The sons of Israel shall camp, each man by his own camp, and each man by his own standard, according to their armies. But the Levites shall camp around the tabernacle of the testimony, so that there will be no wrath on the congregation of the sons of Israel. So the Levites shall keep charge of the tabernacle of the testimony.” Thus the sons of Israel did; according to all which the Lord had commanded Moses, so they did.
Levites: were assistants to the Aaronic priests, they exercised an auxiliary ministry, caring for the tabernacle. After the ark was brought to Jerusalem by David their role was re-ordered and extended. They were reconsecrated during the reforms of Josiah and Hezekiah and recommissioned by Ezra and Nehemiah when the Israelites returned from captivity.
The Levites are to transport, erect, and guard the tabernacle. The Gershonite branch of the Levites are to care for the coverings and curtains of the tabernacle. The Kohathite branch of the Levites are to care for the furnishings of the sanctuary. The Merarite branch of the Levites are to care for the frames of the tabernacle. The Levites are to have an auxiliary ministry. The Levites are set apart for their ministry.
The Levites period of service...
Census literally means an official count of the population, which the U.S. Constitution mandates being conducted every ten years. Since 1790, 22 censuses have been taken, and in March 2010, a simple questionnaire will be sent to every household in the United States. The questions ask you to provide information that is accurate for your household, which is completely confidential. The census counts all people living in the United States, regardless of citizenship, race, ethnicity or age. The U.S. Census Bureau cannot share an individual’s answers with anyone, including welfare and immigration.
At 7 years of age, after being hidden in the Temple for 6 years, Jehoash becomes King.
2 Kings 12:4-5New King James Version (NKJV)
4 And Jehoash said to the priests, “All the money of the dedicated gifts that are brought into the house of the Lord—each man’s census money, each man’s assessment money[a]—and all the money that a man purposes in his heart to bring into the house of the Lord,5 let the priests take it themselves, each from his constituency; and let them repair the damages of the temple, wherever any dilapidation is found.”
The 2010 Census forms are being delivered throughout the country this month. The U.S. Census counts every resident in the United States, and is required by the Constitution to take place every 10 years.
The Census will help communities receive more than $400 billion in federal funds each year, that's why is so important you answer the simple 10 short questions and then mail the form back.

“Mentoring is critical if we intend to address much of the pain, abuse and abandonment that African American males suffer from. While we struggle to find mentors for young African American males, it is equally important to locate the fathers of these young brothers. A young boy’s first mentor should be his father and the other men in his family. Responsible fatherhood must be viewed as a necessary action step to begin the healing process among African American males.”
What can we do?
As I examined this problem and searched for strategies that we could implement, one thing struck me in particular—the reality that approximately 50 percent of black children in the United States live in households without a father figure present (U.S. Census Bureau, 2012). I began to ask myself, Who is going to provide boys with the proper male guidance, direction, leadership, and structure that they desperately need? I want our youth to see adult males who is striving to fulfill their own potential and who is also committed to the growth and development of the younger generation. If our young boys had men in their lives whom they could relate to and identify with, they would look at their education differently and the probability for their success would increase exponentially.
