“It Was You Who Walked The Pages of The Book!”
Thus sounds the joyful cry of one who has come to recognize the footsteps of Jesus walking through the pages of the Hebrew Scriptures. My Savior and Friend has made himself so familiar to my eyes and ears that as I seek him throughout the Word of God I am delighted and gratified to find him everywhere, revealing meaning to that which was opaque, delivering fulfillment to a promise that, without his presence, is bereft of hope.
Eyes Wide Shut
“Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst of a rebellious house, which have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear, and hear not: for they are a rebellious house.” (Ezekiel 12:2)
God saw fit to place a spiritual blindness over his chosen people, that they would not see nor hear his eternal plan of salvation through Jesus.
Eyes of Our Hearts Enlightened
Yet for a growing remnant, the eyes of our hearts have been enlightened to see Jesus. And having once seen him, we recognize him in his manifestations in our ancient book. We run to encounter him in the Word, because we know and love him, and because he nourishes us. Like Abraham, we fall on our faces in his presence and keep silent as he speaks.
“We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.” (John 1:45)

"Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah--not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them, says the LORD. But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I will put my law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people" (Jeremiah 31:31-33).
