The Lamb of God

Ark of the Covenant

Ark of the Covenant

(there was not one feeble or sick person among them).

“He brought them forth also with silver and gold, and there was not

one feeble person among their tribes,” {Psalm 105 v 37}.

 

Now can you imagine when God brought the children of Israel out of Egypt, (there was not one feeble or sick person among them). We are not talking about a few dozen people, or even hundreds, there were thousands upon thousands of people, maybe more than a million, and every one of them was healthy and well. How could this be?

 

 

Well, do you remember before they left Egypt they were told to take a lamb for each family. The lamb had to be without blemish, a perfect lamb, which they had to kill, roast and eat, and as they ate this lamb they were strengthened and healed for their journey. They had to obey God’s word and do exactly as He told them.

 

 

 This lamb had to be perfect, without spot or blemish. The lamb was an old testament type of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is our perfect, spotless, Lamb of God.

 

 

 Jesus who died in our place, for all our sins, so that we could be saved, healed and delivered, and made fit for heaven. And so it is today, as we come to the Lord’s table, we must come in reverence before the Lord, remembering all that Jesus has done for us. He died in pain and agony for us, so that we could be washed from our sins and go to heaven.

 

 

 In 1 Corinthians 11 v 29-30, it says, “For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.”

 

 

This is a very strong scripture, but, very true, it speaks for itself and must not be ignored.

When we come to take the bread and the wine, we must come with a repentant heart, asking the Lord to cleanse us anew, and heal our bodies.

 

 

 Just as the children of Israel were healed and strengthened as they ate the pascal lamb, so we to can be healed and strengthened as we come to Jesus and partake of the bread and the wine, remembering all that He has done for us and thanking Him with a heart overflowing with love and gratitude. Our Jesus is truly wonderful, King of Kings and Lord of Lords, our all sufficient redeemer.     (DB).

Jesus is the joy of living, He is the king of life to me; Unto Him my all I’m giving, His forever more to be. I will do what He commands me, anywhere He leads I’ll go; Jesus is the joy of living,                  He’s the dearest friend I know.
