This is what God revealed to me from His Word recently:
And the Word became flesh and tabernacled among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.
What happened in this verse that is of such great significance?
Do you know what the purpose of the tabernacle was in the Old Testament?
Who resided within the tabernacle?
Once there was a permanent temple (the first one) Whom did God promise the Israelites that He would cause to dwell with them forever, if they would keep His covenant?
Wow! Think about it! Think about why it was (and is) such a big deal that once the Spirit of God had left the temple due to the Israelites breaking their part of their covenant with God, we see His provision through Jesus as a new tabernacle.
And with Jesus present, who else would be there...filling the new tabernacle?
Do you see it?
Will you comment?
Also...what was the Word full of?
Now, check this out:
For the Law was given through Moses, grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ.
What key repeated phrase do you see between the two verses?
What is huge here friends?
What did Jesus bring that no one else had? (Hint: there are several answers here.)
I know that I'm asking you to think...but I truly want you to see it...to dig it out.
We leave in a few hours. Still praying for an upgrade. :-)
Chugga chugga choo-choo.
