The Story of a Lamb…
I give thanks to God for my Pastor, BK, and an amazing picture he painted on Resurrection Sunday:
Where is the Lamb?
Genesis 2 – a lamb was slain to cover the shame of original sin… (Clothed in righteousness?)
Genesis 4:4 – Abel brought the firstborn lamb – His gift was acceptable to the Lord
Genesis 22 – Abraham and Isaac – God provided a lamb
Exodus 12:1-14 – The plague of the death of the firstborn – A lamb’s blood allows God to passover.
Isaiah 53:7 – Messiah: A lamb led to slaughter
John 1:29 – Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world.
Rev 5 – Worthy is the lamb is who was slain to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might… They worshipped Him!!
Oh how many questions there are to ask! How many great answers to seek! May it never stop… don’t stop seeking the Lamb of God:
Where is Christ?
He is on every page…
The first and the last… alpha and omega… beginning and end… author and finisher…
Was Jesus called the lamb because lambs were always sacrificed for sin before him?
Were lambs chosen to be the acceptable and pleasing sacrifice because Jesus is the Lamb of God?
What do you think?
