God Still Speaks

Not all from the same source, the abundance of Bread fills me! Did I mention the study on the Tabernacle I have been doing with my friend? There is where I learned the meaning of the word Bethlehem—House of Bread! Is it any wonder at all that Jesus, THE Bread of Life was laid in a manger, a feeding trough? Is it any wonder, Mrs. Schaeffer marvels, that our Savior, the Lamb of God, was born among the animals in a stable? God speaks so very plainly as He calls to the lowly shepherds…”Go into Bethlehem and see for yourselves, the Lamb of God and fellow Shepherd. Surely you will recognize Him!” With humble hearts and intuitive insight, as lambs gone astray, they did. As the author reminds us, they were Jewish! They were familiar with the Old Testament finger of God, pointing to the Promise: Lamb and King, Shepherd and Servant. They very well could have KNOWN Micah’s prophecy! They were stirred beyond amazement when God’s angel spoke. “Behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to ALL people…” the seed of Abraham is come to bless ALL nations. It was really happening and they didn’t SIT and meditate on it…they ran to see the place! Just as the Wise men journeyed and had sight to see a King in an ordinary baby boy.

I have also been fed with my new Zion’s Fire. In the Tabernacle, there was no seat for the priests: A table, altar, wash basin, lamp--no chair. Marvin J. Rosenthal explains it; their work was NEVER finished because the people are EVER sinning and in need of atonement. The priests were forever in demand for the annual covering of sin and the various sin offerings brought to the altar for sacrifice. Until the Perfect Lamb appeared and offered Himself---and said, “It is finished”, there was no rest from the torment of sin. But, Marv Rosenthal continues in his article, Hebrews 1:3 tells us Jesus SAT at His Father’s side. Sin was dealt with once, for all. Dear ones, the Lamb was slain for you. The Shepherd laid down His life for His sheep.

The King lives and will take hold of your life--the moment you let Him. Be His lamb, follow your Shepherd, bow to your King.
