The Cross-8

SACRIFICING ISAAC
The Cross-8
Genesis 22:5 “…I and the lad will go yonder and worship and come again to you.”
Genesis 22:6 “AND ABRAHAM TOOK THE WOOD OF THE BURNT OFFERING, AND LAID IT UPON ISAAC HIS SON; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together.”
…From yesterday…
Abraham literally made it “impossible” for God not to lay the cross on Jesus, because the covenant demands that whatever belongs to one party belongs to both, and no one can hold anything back from the other.
Now let’s bring it home.
When Jesus said:
Matthew 16:24 “Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.”
He wasn’t asking us to carry the cross as it were to go get killed; he was simply saying, “Walk in the consciousness daily of what the covenant via the cross has earned for us!”
Friend, as a believer, you are not ordinary, you are a covenant child of the Living God, the Creator of Heaven and earth, the Almighty Himself, the Defender and Protector.
When God laid the “wood” on Christ and sacrificed him, and raised him up again on the third day, he brought us into a covenant relationship with the very and only GOD of the universe.
Guess what? The terms of that covenant state that whatever this GOD will do to protect himself and his throne, he will do same for you and I, Hallelujah!
As a believer who understands and carries the covenant daily, we are untouchable and indestructible. We rule and reign with Christ.
We also have unlimited and unrestricted access to the wealth and provisions of God. Hear this:
Romans 8:32 “He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?”
Imagine that! Because of what Christ did on the cross, you and I have access to the greatest wealth deposit in the whole wide world! We have access to all things!
Friend, lay the wood upon yourself each day! Happy Easter once again family.
To be continued…
