A Poem, A Principle, and A Prayer March 26, 2018


When I was in college someone gave me a copy of an anonymous  poem about the Bible as God’s revelation of Himself. Today we begin a new podcast series called “Journey Through the Scripture.” My prayer is that we all will come to know the written Word in a greater way, and through this journey, we will come to know the Living Word more personally.

Bible study is not about knowing things; it is about knowing Christ. I thought you would like a copy of the poem for yourself. I hope it, and the daily studies, will be a blessing to you…

I see my Lord in the Bible,
Whenever I chance to look.
He is the theme of the Bible,
The center and heart of the Book.

He is the Rose of Sharon,
He is the lily fair,
Whenever I open the Bible
The Lord of the Bible is there.

He is in the book’s beginning,
He gave the earth its form,
He is the Ark of Safety
To bear the brunt of the storm.

The burning bush of the desert
Then the budding of Aaron’s Rod,
And whenever I open the Bible
I see the Son of God.

The Lamb upon Mount Moriah,
The ladder from earth to sky,
The scarlet cord in the window,
The serpent lifted high,
The smitten rock of the desert,
The shepherd with staff and crook,
It’s whenever I open the Bible,
I see my Lord in the Book.

He is the seed of the woman
The Saviour virgin-born,
He is the son of David,
Who men rejected with scorn.
The Lord of eternal Glory,
Whom John the apostle saw,
The light of the celestial city,
That lamb without spot or flaw.

The bridegroom coming at midnight,
For whom His people look.
Yes, thank God, whenever I open the Bible,

The ruins of the Castle of the Servant in Jordan. The historian Josephus wrote that the dynasty of Tobiah built a castle on the east side of the Jordan River, in Ammon. He specifically wrote in the Antiquities of the Jews about the carved "beasts of gigantic size" visible here on the left corner of the structure. The beasts on the right side are not as well-preserved. The structure dates to the centuries after Nehemiah, however it shows the power and prestige of this family of "servants."

The Mountain of the House, also known as the Temple Mount, with the Mount of Olives in the background.
Some of the steps in the foreground date from the Second Temple period, and would have been the steps Jesus ascended. Archeologists have uncovered around 300 baptismal pools along the steps leading up to the Temple. They would be convenient for baptizing 3,000 people!
The Hebrew word ruakh can mean either spirit, wind, or breath. The Breath of God, the Spirit of God, and the Wind of God are all understood to be cognates.
