A LOOK BACK

In our study of Jesus throughout Scripture we have been finding the scripture references that depict him in each book of the Bible. Let’s recap on the first three books shall we?

In Genesis 3:15, He is the Seed of the woman.

In Exodus 12:3, He is the Passover Lamb.

In Leviticus 9:22, He is our Great High Priest

MOVING ON

The next book is of course Deuteronomy.  In chapter one of that book Moses is telling the Israelite’s how he listened to them and sent spies into the promised land and yet the people were still too afraid to follow the Lord in to take possession of the land.

He tells them,

Then I said to you, “Do not be terrified or afraid of them. The LORD your God who goes before you, He will fight for you, according to all He did for you in Egypt before your eyes. and in the wilderness where you saw how the LORD your God carried you, as a man carries his son, in all the way that you went until you came to this place.”  Yet for all that, you did not believe the LORD your God, who went in the way before you to search out a place for you to pitch your tents to show you the way you should go, in the fire by night and in the cloud by day.  

Deuteronomy 129-33 NKJV 

In the end of this section of scripture is where we find Jesus our Lord leading the Israelite’s. Covering them by night and by day.

So in Deuteronomy Jesus is The Pillar of Fire by night and The Pillar of Cloud by day.

Can you imagine what it was like to follow Him as a cloud by day and fire by night?

What do you think that would have been like?
