The Abrahamic Covenant. Part 18 The mystery behind the place called Jehovah-Jireh.
Sunday, May 5, 2002
1. The ram is a type of TLJC, who is available for the sinner as his substitute, EXO 22:5; EXO 29:22, LEV 8:21;LEV 9:2.
2. Isaac was on the altar ready to die as all of us were on our way to eternal death.
3. Horns = power, strength, and grandeur, 2SA 22:3, 1KI 22:11, LUK 1:69. A perfect illustration of TLJC who with His great power was fastened to the cross for our sins.
“Jehovah-Jireh” - the Lord will provide, or the Lord will see to it - another title for Mount Moriah, later called Mount Zion.
This place, called Mount Zion, later was where Christ was crucified and where He will return; it is the location of the Temple and is called “Gods holy mountain.”
Because of his implicit obedience he went to exactly the right spot.
Accurate and complete obedience is necessary to adjust to the justice of God.
The angel of the Lord - ma`lak Yahweh = God the Son, TLJC, the spokesman for the Trinity.
PRO 30:6 Do not add to His words Lest He reprove you, and you be proved a liar.
This was a formal occasion in which Abraham glorified God in the angelic conflict; there was no intercession, no conversation, no teaching, but a formal declaration and promotion from heaven.
This new race called the Jew will provide more blessing for the human race than all of the other races combined with all of their best efforts.
One spiritual champion or winner believer turned the world upside down for every generation from that time.
Salvation - Jesus Christ, in His humanity bearing our sins, was a Jew.
Revelation of doctrine - no one will ever be as great as the apostle Paul; of 27 books in the N.T. he wrote 14, maybe even 15.
No one in the Old Testament was such a genius and a national leader as Moses.
No one was as great as Abraham, Moses, David, Isaiah!
It is the new race, the Jew, that has stood in the gap for 4,000 years to protect satanic evil from dominating the human race.
2CO 8:12 For if the readiness is present, it is acceptable according to what a man has, not according to what he does not have.
The thing that gives Him the most pleasure is a creature, who by his own free will, goes in for maximum adjustment to the justice of God.
