Inspired by . . . the Hope of His Coming Vol. 0

 

MainGraphicAdvent2014

 

We should have begun our Advent series with this, beloved.

But I have only just discovered it. Rather like finding the key to the center drawer of that old desk you found in your mother’s attic years before.

Let’s unlock the mystery together, shall we?

 

Griffith Thomas said of the Old Testament:

It is a book of unfulfilled prophecies,

unexplained ceremonies, and

unsatisfied longings.

ALL of which are resolved

in the New Testament focus on

JESUS CHRIST.

Who fulfills in His life the prophecies,

explains in His death the ceremonies, and

satisfies in His resurrection the longings.

 

It is HIStory.

From before time begin – for all time.

 

“Her offspring will crush your head, and you will bite her offspring's heel."  Gen 3:15

 

But when the right time finally came, God sent His own Son.

He came as the son of a human mother and lived under the Jewish Law,
to redeem those who were under the Law,

so that we might become God's children. Gal 4:4-5

 

In the beginning the Word already existed; the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1

  1. As I study the Life of Moses, I really do love how it all points to Jesus Christ. I have tried reading through books of the Old Testament before but this truth had never stood out for me like it is now.
    I hope you had a wonderful weekend, June. You and your family have been in my thoughts and prayers.
    Much love. xoxo

  2. Thanks for discovering and sharing this treasure. The Old Testament is so rich in prophesy, but I tend to sidestep it for the New Testament, for the life of Jesus and the writings of Paul.

    Thanks, June, for going there today ... your series is enriching my own advent ... I am grateful.

  3. Love that version of John 1:1 "...the Word already existed." I derive such confidence in that fact! He always was, is, and will be. Thanks for this, June.

  4. Love those thoughts from Griffith Thomas. You know, I suppose it was when I first read the Bible, cover to cover, that I finally understood that it really is one giant love story. A love story between a Creator and His beloved creation.

    Remember that old formula for romantic movies? Boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl? Well, I suppose the Bible might have been the *prototype* for that idea! Think on it. In the beginning, God's creation culminates in the creation of Adam and Eve. Humans meet God, and love prevails. Then, the Fall happens and sin enters the world. We are lost in our transgressions. But, the Lover in The Story, God, spends the rest of the Bible unfolding His grand plan of rescue and redemption. And at the end of it all, through faith in the Main Character, Jesus, we will receive eternal life and everlasting reunion with our Creator.

    Happily ever after indeed!

    What could be more beautiful?!

    GOD BLESS!
