Topic: ROCK OF AGES 1

Bible Reading:

Exodus 17:5-6
📖5….”And the LORD said unto Moses, Go on before the people, and take with thee of the elders of Israel; and thy rod, wherewith thou smotest the river, take in thine hand, and go.
📖6….Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; AND THOU SHALT SMITE THE ROCK, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.”

Numbers 20:8
📖8….”Take the rod, and gather thou the assembly together, thou, and Aaron thy brother, AND SPEAK YE UNTO THE ROCK BEFORE THEIR EYES; and it shall give forth his water, and thou shalt bring forth to them water out of the rock: so thou shalt give the congregation and their beasts drink.”

Message:

🔥Even though some preachers don’t recognize the Old Testament, those that apply it in their Christian lives, are indirectly also applying Christ to their lives. It is difficult for some New Testament preachers to accept that Christ was with the Jews on their way from Egyptian captivity to the prepared place. It is not news to them though, that the Christ of the New Testament is taking them from this corrupt world to a prepared place called heaven, yet they refuse to accept that the same Christ also took the Israelites from the Egyptian corruption to a prepared place as well.

🔥🔥But thank God for his word in 1 Corinthians 10:4 which acknowledged Christ as being the Rock they drank in Numbers 20:10-11. This makes Jesus Christ, the Rock of ages. In John 17:24, Jesus testified of himself as being loved by the Father before the foundation of the world. And was said to have also been slain from the foundation of the world in Rev 13:8. So, from time immemorial, before, during, and after the Old Testament, Christ had been in and with God.

🔥🔥🔥God made known this Rock, called Jesus Christ to his children from the Old Testament. So, ignoring the Old Testament, is ignoring an integral part of God’s redemption plan. As a matter of fact, it can be deduced that God’s anger against Moses and Aaron in Numbers 20:12, was because they distorted the New Testament that God was setting up from the Old Testament. While God allowed the Rock to be smitten in the Old Testament (Exodus 17:1-6), He told Moses to speak to the Rock when the Jews needed water the second time, as a preamble to the manifestation of Christ in the New Testament. Today, we only speak to Christ the Rock, and our needs are met. Beloveth, as you cleave to the Rock of ages, your age long problems shall all be solved.

SOULS ACTIVITIES:

🙏Heavenly Father, deliver me by your Rock of ages, as you deliver the Jews in the wilderness, in Jesus’ name.

🙏🙏Ancient of days, grant for me to always receive strength as I drink your Son’s blood for spiritual endowment, in Jesus’ name.

🙏🙏🙏Thank you Father, for the grace you have given to us today, by speaking to you in your Son’s name.
