WHERE IS THE LAMB?
In the Old Testament:
God instituted the sacrificial system for the Remission of individual Sins by the shedding of blood. And the Nation of Israel has been saying “Where is the Lamb?” for over 3,500 years. Every week throughout a Jews entire life he would be constantly searching for the best lamb he could get for the sacrifices he needed to make for himself and his family.
When Abraham made the trip with Isaac to Mt. Moriah to sacrifice his son on the alter to the Lord, Isaac asked the question that would echo throughout time by the Jewish people…”Where is the Lamb?”
Genesis 22: 7-14 7 Isaac spoke to Abraham his father and said, “My father!” And he said, “Here I am, my son.” And he said, “Behold, the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?” 8 Abraham said, “God will provide for Himself the lamb for the burnt offering, my son.” So the two of them walked on together.
9 Then they came to the place of which God had told him; and Abraham built the altar there and arranged the wood, and bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood. 10 Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to slay his son. 11 But the angel of the LORD called to him from heaven and said, “Abraham, Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.” 12 He said, “Do not stretch out your hand against the lad, and do nothing to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me.”
13 Then Abraham raised his eyes and looked, and behold, behind him a ram caught in the thicket by his horns; and Abraham went and took the ram and offered him up for a burnt offering in the place of his son. 14 Abraham called the name of that place The LORD Will Provide, as it is said to this day, “In the mount of the LORD it will be provided.”
Rabbis today are discussing how and when to re-institute the Sacrificial System. They know they need a Temple. We know from the book of Revelation that the Temple will be rebuilt without the Court of the Gentiles. The dome of the rock now occupies that area.
The Rabbis want a Temple to be prepared for their coming Messiah. SOON, the Nation of Israel will again be saying…”Where is the Lamb?”
In the New Testament:
Then when Jesus approached John to be baptized, John exclaimed: “Behold…The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” The question of “where is the Lamb?” was answered once and for all time by the Jewish Prophet John who himself exclaimed “I am The Voice of one crying in the Wilderness; make ready the way of the Lord”. It was John’s purpose to announce the coming Messiah to the Nation of Israel after 400 years of Gods Silence. Then GOD answered, breaking the silence…
Matthew 3:16-17 After being baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove and lighting on Him, 17 and behold, a voice out of the heavens said, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased.”
In the Book of Revelation:
Then finally the Lamb of God is Revealed and identified as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, Y’shua the Messiah / Jesus the Christ / The Lamb of God who was “worthy to be slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing…To HIM who sits on the throne and to the Lamb, Be blessing and honor and glory and dominion forever and ever…AMEN”.
IT WON’T BE LONG NOW
