SAA Notes

These visions are repeated in Revelation – with differences. The scroll and its seven seals and the Lamb, the Angel and the Little Scroll, the Woman on the Beast, the Four Horsemen, and Crown Him With Many Crowns!

SJA Notes

* Father God, please help us understand Your word today to us.

“Behold, the man whose name is the Branch; for he shall branch out from this place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD.”

Sometimes it can be hard to see meaning in certain parts of God’s word.

Today we read of mountains of bronze. Of four chariots with red, black, white and dappled horses. Of a basket with Wickedness in it. A flying scroll!

One thing in this passage is that we see Jesus.

“Behold, the man whose name is the Branch; for he shall branch out from this place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD.”

While it is earthly-shadow true of the high priest Joshua who lived at that time, it is heavenly-reality true of Jesus!

In the book of John in the new testament we read Jesus saying,

“Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”

Here is Jesus, the man whose name is the righteous branch of Jesse!

And He builds His temple, the church, us His people!

* Lord God,

Please show us what You want for us today, from Your word.

Please plant Your word deep within us, and grow it, that we might be good soil and bear much fruit.

We praise Your Name!

Amen.
