A blessed Resurrection Day to all!!!
The same One who delivered the people of Israel out of bondage delivers all who receive the blood He shed on the cross as the perfect Lamb of God on the lintels of their heart!
On Good Friday Joyce and I focused on the words of the Passion, so last night we focused on the imagery and watched The Passion of the Christ by Mel Gibson without the subtitles. Only hearing Hebrew, Aramaic, and Latin helped us really see what the Lord did for us, so that we might be set free!
I find it easiest to understand the Christian doctrine that "Heaven" is a state in which angels now, and men hereafter, are perpetually employed in praising God . . . . To see what the doctrine really means, we must suppose ourselves to be in perfect love with God—drunk with, drowned in, dissolved by, the delight which, far from remaining pent up within ourselves as incommunicable, hence hardly tolerable, bliss, flows out from us incessantly again in effortless and perfect expression, our joy no more separable from the praise in which it liberates and utters itself than the brightness a mirror receives is separable from the brightness it sheds.The Lord has been speaking to me through the time that He wakes me in the night. Last night I saw it was 12:46, and I felt like He was directing me to a chapter and verse, but what Book? He let me go back to sleep but as soon as I woke He reminded me, and I knew it was Isaiah, but there aren’t 46 verses in that chapter. Immediately I saw it was verses 4 to 6. What a perfect passage to encourage us to make known his deeds at Passover and Resurrection Day!
