The story of Korah represents rebellion.
The name Korah, in its meaning, it portrays the idea of baldness, that which is cold and frosted.
As we observe closely, we will see the representation of the name and its meaning bearing a lesson for today.
Rebellion is the act of disorder, and rebellion brings division. Therein, is the lack of harmony and ultimately growth, or increase. In this, we perceive the meaning of the name, (Korah) baldness, the absence of a covering of a surface. When the individual to whom right and wrong is known, but chooses to rebel against that which is right, the individual loses their covering, in baldness they are exposed. The effect is the absence of love and Divine nourishment, but being cold and frosted, they bear not a fruit, until they wither away.
From this progeniture we all are, sons and daughters of rebellion, bare and exposed with nothing to show for, but with a hard heart of disobedience, and the attitude of coldness one to another. Frosted in our old ways, until destruction is imminent, but like the verse above, this we read.
Notwithstanding the children of Korah died not.
Though we be the children of rebellion and with a cold-heartedness, but by the grace of God, may we be conformed to the love of the Father, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Now that we are, we perceive, where there was once rebellion, mercy has rewritten our story to the conformity of God’s affection of love, one to another, in one accord. We endure through the trials of a broken world, but with the hope of that which is to come, being better than the present, we place our hope in heavenly places.
That we may be called the children of God.
Let not our past be of a hindrance for the present, but as a reminder of the great change once worked in us, so shall the future be of great accomplishments, by the grace of God.
Behold, what manner of love the Father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called the children of God.
