Consider this--do you think the risen Lord talked to His companions on the Emmaus Road about Moses the deliverer spoken of in chapter three of Exodus?
Did He explain to them how God's people were in bondage, in deep slavery and needed someone to deliver--to lead them to a land that was flowing with milk and honey where they could find true rest for their souls?
Did they understand that they were the captives and now had access to freedom?
If Jesus quoted this verse to them
Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the far side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. There the angel of the LORD appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush.
do you suppose they really understood that it was in the desert, the wilderness, the storm of crucifixion that their freedom was purchased?
Do we understand that sometimes it is on the far side of the desert where we find the Lord Himself and realize we are standing on Holy Ground?
Dearest friends, a man whom I greatly admire, one of the greatest saints of this century in my opinion, went home to be with the Lord yesterday, April 27, 2011--the result of a tragic traffic accident in East Texas. To learn a little of his heart please watch this YouTube video.
