Topic: ROCK OF AGES 2
Bible Reading: 1 Corinthians 10:1-4
📖1….”Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;
📖2….And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;
📖3….And did all eat the same spiritual meat;
📖4….And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.”
🔥The connectivity between the Old Testament and the New Testament, is the verifying factor that the same God inspired both covenants. In the Old Testament, the Jews ate a spiritual meat in a meal called the Lord’s passover and drank a spiritual drink that came from a Rock identified in 1 Cor 10:4 as Christ. In the New Testament, the spiritual Jews or Israelites by faith which are called Christians, also eat a spiritual bread (flesh), in a meal called the Communion, and also drink the blood (wine), that comes from that same Christ, according to Matt 26:26-28.
🔥🔥Lexically, the word ‘rock’ means a lifeless stone. But the biblical Rock is a spiritual stone which causes offence and pains if you stumble on it, or if it falls on you…Matt 21:44. But if you honour this biblical Rock, it becomes your safety (Matt 21:42). This Rock is greater and stronger than the enemy’s carved stone…Deut 32:31, because their stone falls prostrate at the presence of our God’s Ark…1 Sam 5:1-4. The difference is that, our Rock of ages is a fountain of water and life when spoken to…Num 20:8.
🔥🔥🔥When God told Moses that he had found grace in his sight (Exodus 33:17), He placed him on the cleft of the Rock of ages so that he could see God…Exodus 33:21-23. And according to Deuteronomy 32:13, our Rock of ages makes us to ride on the high places of the earth, makes us to eat of the increases of the fields, and gives us honey and oil to suck. In the New Testament, the power of the Rock is so much that it turns water to wine. Beloveth, Jesus Christ is our Rock of ages, may his presence crush their rock before us.
🙏Heavenly Father, overpower my flesh with the fruits from the Rock of ages that I eat and drink from your Communion table, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Ancient of days, use the power of the Rock of ages to grind to powder, whoever oppressively stumble on me with afflictions, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏O Lord, as I hold on to you by faith, elevate me to the cleft of the solid Rock of ages, where I will suck oil, honey and see you clearly, in Jesus’ name.
