~~Movies of the Old testament ~~
NOte: Pls read previous episode for clarity
Movie Title: Isaac and the Lamb
Starring: Abraham, Sarah, and Isaac
From our previous episode we saw how the Prophets were enquiring to see what salvation looks like. But it was hidden from the foundation of the world that Had Satan known He wouldn’t have crucified the Lord as the Scripture says.
Abraham wanted to know what this salvation is all about. God decided to show Abraham a movie with God being the director himself, to direct Abraham what he wanted to see. Let’s enjoy the movie
Genesis 2:22 NLT
Then God said take ”your son, your only son–yes, Isaac, whom you love so much–and go to the land of Moriah. Go and sacrifice him as a burnt offering on one of the mountains, which I will show you.
The next morning Abraham got up early. He saddled his donkey and took two of his servants with him, along with his son, Isaac. Then he chopped wood for a fire for a burnt offering and set out for the place God had told him about.
Isaac turned to Abraham and said, “Father?” “Yes, my son?” Abraham replied. “We have the fire and the wood,” the boy said, “but where is the sheep for the burnt offering?
God will provide a sheep for the burnt offering, my son,” Abraham answered. And they both walked on together.
And Abraham picked up the knife to kill his son as a sacrifice.
At that moment the angel of the LORD called to him from heaven, “Abraham! Abraham!” “Yes,” Abraham replied. “Here I am!”
Do not lay a hand on the boy!” the angel said. “Do not hurt him in any way, for now I know that you truly fear God. You have not withheld from me even your son, your only son.”
Abraham looked up and saw a ram caught by its horns in a thicket. So he took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering in place of his son.
When Abraham saw this act He rejoiced not because Isaac was spared but because He saw the meaning of salvation.
Look at what Jesus said
Your father Abraham rejoiced that he would see my day. He saw it and was glad.
How did Abraham saw Jesus? He saw him in the movie God directed him. That ram was Jesus
He was so happy to see salvation where someone steps into your place of death and condemnation so that you can have the fullness of life, but it was not for him. So sad
It was for us. Actually He was working for us.
Abraham might be thinking how blessed those generation will be. So is this salvation wow
We don’t need a movie now. We have the substance of the movie. Those were shadows to reveal the substance.
Wow God the best director.
Abraham saw salvation but he never enjoyed it.
You have him and I have him too. He is Jesus
Why should you feel condemned.
You are worth the days of Abraham.
Watch out for the next movie part 3
Enjoy Grace and God punish Religion
