“I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.”
John 10:9 NKJV
“…The Lamb who was killed is worthy to receive power, wealth, wisdom, and strength, honor, glory, and praise!””
Revelation 5:12 GNBUK
“The blood on the doorposts will be a sign to mark the houses in which you live. When I see the blood, I will pass over you and will not harm you when I punish the Egyptians. You must celebrate this day as a religious festival to remind you of what I, the LORD, have done. Celebrate it for all time to come.””
Exodus 12:13-14 GNBUK
As one delves deeper in the Bible, they see linkages reflecting the perfection of God. As you get deeper in the Word, you can see tie ins everywhere in perfect harmony that only God can complete. That’s why one can read the Bible every day for the rest of their lives and garner new things all the time.
Here is just one tie in:
In John, Jesus says He is the door. No one enters Heaven any other way. Now, let’s look at Exodus. God told His people to smear sacrificial Lamb’s blood on their door for protection from harm. Guess how they were to smear the blood? They would smear vertically and then horizontally. Yes, the blood smear was in a form of a cross. Now, think about the significance of the cross. As the final sacrifice, Jesus poured out His blood as He was dying on the cross as a substitute for us. In Revelation, He is called the lamb of God.
Thank you for showing me your perfection in the Word. Your Word is like a perfectly tuned orchestra that only You can do. Please continue to teach me your perfection. In Jesus’ precious name. Amen.
