  1. Well said!!

     
  2. Thank You traildustfotm for this wonderful post about our Lord and Savior.
    …He is truly throughout the bible….”And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us”
    here is a song titled “He is” that places Jesus throughout every book of the bible:

     
  3. This is so true traildust. Thank you for this post! I am reading the whole bible for the first time in my life. At 50 yrs old that is shameful but better late than never. It is so evident that the old testament is all about Jesus and Him there speaking with Abraham and lot’s of other patriarchs and prophets. So amazing the revelation of our Lord hidden in “Plain Site” right there. My husband is on his second reading and he says that he is seeing things he missed the first time.
    The Word of God is truly alive and able to make us alive with the Holy Spirit showing us the way.
    I pray many people will be touched by you bringing this to light and open up the WORD….that was made flesh and dwelt among us and gave His life as a ransom for our sin in order for us to have a right relationship with the Father.
    Praise His Holy Name!

     
    • Thank you Heather! You made my day. 😀

       
    • Amen Heather!
      Reading the bible is a life long process, because every time you read it, you learn something new. When I read the bible I ask ‘Where is Jesus?’ and I always find Him.
      He is the Word:
      “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God.
      …And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us full of grace and truth.”
      John 1:11, 14
      Those are my top top favorite bible verses along with the new covenant verse by Jesus (many favorites actually).
      Through the living waters of Jesus, the Holy Spirit quenches my soul.
      Even as Jesus was dying up on the cross, he said “I thirst”.
      I don’t think he meant he was thirsty for water because he could have asked for water at any point during His atonement for our sins (flogging, walk on the road to Calvary bearing His own cross, crucifixion, process of death).
      In the Old Testament, God said, “For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul”. Leviticus 17:11
      Jesus is our atonement upon the altar of the cross. “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.” 1John 2:2
      It makes sense to me that since the Son of God was made flesh to be the “propitiation for our sins” and he accomplished that through His death and resurrection, that His final words weren’t at all about himself, but about us.
      He died because He thirsted for us! How amazing is that! Even before he was conceived by the Holy Spirit and up until the final moments of His last breath, He was prepared to suffer for us. He lived a perfect life, died a perfect death, and rose from the grave so that His perfect blood will wash away sin from all who believe in Him.
      I read the bible knowing in my heart Jesus loves not just me, but everyone; and reading the bible not only reaffirms His love, but gives me strength as well.
