Now Moses was faithful in all His house as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken later; – Hebrews 3:5
There’s something really cool going on here.
Moses lived his life some fourteen hundred years before Christ.
He spoke with God face to face as a man speaks to his friend.
He received the Word of God written by the finger of God on tablets of stone.
He saw first hand some of the greatest miracles ever recorded, parting of the Red Sea, water from a rock, daily provision of mana, pillar of fire and cloud.
But all this–his whole life–his full testimony pointed toward another Word, a Word not yet spoken, a Word who would come in the flesh. Moses’ life painted a picture of deliverance. The architect of the exodus from Egypt created for us through Moses a scale model of the temple He planned to build for Himself in the fullness of time.
That later Word: Jesus!
That later temple: Jesus!
Yes, they would tear it down and crow in victory, but three days would pass and that temple would rise out of the rubble.
Jesus, the mustard seed, planted in expectation of harvest by the sower, would burst forth from the ground, growing into the greatest tree in the garden. The grain of wheat, planted, buried, so life could come, a full harvest of life to follow.
Moses would receive the Word directly from the Father and bring it to the people. They said, “you tell us what He says, and we’ll obey every word.” So God sent His Word through Moses, and the people rejected it.
God sent His Word again. He sent this later Word to His own people, the ones who cherished Torah, the ones who knew His every jot and tittle.
They took one look at His later Word and plotted how to kill Him.
But today, you get to choose. You can receive God’s later (final) Word. You can allow the imperishable seed of God’s final Word to take root in the soil of your soul.
God wants to speak into your life.
Really all we need to do is tune in, get quiet, and listen.
Thanks for coming by,
