The Key

The truth of the Bible is hidden

To those who do not have the key

Isaiah 22:22
“And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.”

Family Tree

If we trace our path backwards

We all end up in the same place

 

As we get closer to our origin

The paths start to merge

Until there is only one path

And only two who took that path

Out of the garden

 

Our family tree has many branches

The branches are the paths

 

Our family tree is like a map

And we find our way back home

By following the crumbs we left behind

 

The Bible is our family tree

 

Lamb of God

All my life

The Bible has been

A presence in my home

 

First as a child

We had a huge KJV

And although I could not read

I loved looking at the pictures

And I loved hearing the stories

My Dad told us

 

Then my grandparents

Gave me my own Bible as a gift

When I was 16

And I vowed to read it before I died

And 17 years later

I finished it

 

So all my life

The lamb he gave me to feed

I fed him the word of God

Until he ate it all up

And was full

 

Then did my lord

Come for his lamb

 

The lamb is my flock

The one he put in my care

 

St. John 21:15

“…He said unto him, Feed my lambs.”

 

Word of God

The Bible allows us

To look back through time

Particularly

From sin to salvation

It is written from

Another perspective

For the author

Would have to see it all first

Then tell the story

Through those who were living

At the time 

 

We can see those 

Who came before us

And they can  see us

Through the Word of God
