3rd January 2023
Grace for you today !
Behold Jesus the Lamb and truly begin to see His blessings!
….“Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” John 1:29 NKJV
But their eyes were restrained, so that they did not know Him. And He said to them, “What kind of conversation is this that you have with one another as you walk and are sad?”
Luke 24:16-17 NKJV
These were the two of disciples of Jesus who followed Him during the time He was on the earth. Jesus was crucified at that time and He also rose from the dead.
But, these disciples were very sad along with the rest because they couldn’t accept that the Messiah would die first. This is because the Jewish concept of Messiah was that He is the King who would redeem Israel from slavery and will reign forever – Messiah dying was unimaginable & unacceptable to them.
Even though the Lord Jesus Himself and the prophets of the Old Testament prophesied time & again that the Messiah would die for the redemption of mankind, yet these prophecies didn’t sink into their hearts.
The Lord Jesus got into a conversation with these two disciples to show the need for Him to become the Lamb of God to be slain in order to usher in the true deliverance.
These verses say that their eyes were restrained from seeing God’s ultimate blessing and they were sad because they failed to see Jesus as the the Lamb of God.
My beloved, as you have entered into 2023, know that the Lord has great blessings in store for you this year. Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal Jesus as the Lamb of God especially in this month of January. And your sorrows shall be turned into joy as a result and your eyes shall see when good comes.
You are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus by His blood! Amen 🙏
Praise Jesus the Lamb!
