Last week we remembered God’s promise that the Seed of the woman would descend from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and would defeat Satan. Furthermore this Seed would bless the entire world.
Abraham knew that God would provide the needed sacrifice but he didn’t know that sacrifice would bless and redeem the world.
And Abraham said, “My son, God will provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering.”
Thousands of years later God provided Himself as the lamb. God became a man and was born of a virgin hence the Seed of woman (not of man).
The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!
John gave us a glimpse of what will happen sometime in the future when the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David prevails and all heaven worships Him.
Revelation 5:12-13Worthy is the Lamb who was slain To receive power and riches and wisdom, And strength and honor and glory and blessing!” And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying: Blessing and honor and glory and power Be to Him who sits on the throne, And to the Lamb, forever and ever!”
PRAY FOR ALL PEOPLE TO APPRECIATE GOD’S UNIQUE RELATIONSHIP WITH ISRAEL THROUGH WHO CAME REDEMPTION FOR THE WORLD.
