Wait on the LORD: be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen thine heart;
wait, I say, on the LORD.

Understanding The Heart of God 12/16/08
Good Morning, Dear Family.

God's blessings of grace and peace be with us today and always!

Are you like me, in that we struggle to understand and live in the connection between prophecy and fulfillment? Between the Old Testament and the New Testament? Here is something that recently came to me. Maybe this will help us to "see."

Also, this statement needs to be made: In the Old Testament Jesus was prophesied of through types, metaphors, pictures, similies and so forth. When He came in the flesh to dwell among us, He was no longer as in a photograph, but He had a body just like us, but without sin, of course.

What would you and I know about our mother, the one who gave us life and revealed her heart towards us through her actions and words, if we had only viewed her in a photograph? We would have missed out on a lot, for sure. We would have never known the love, the sacrifice, the caring, the prayers, and so forth that she had for us. But more than that, far more than that, if we only knew her through a photograph, she would have missed the blessing of the outpouring of her heart of Jesus towards us as her children, and we would have missed receiving the blessing of Christ's love through our dear mother. And that, my dear brothers and sisters, is why God came in the flesh, to reveal His heart toward us, his children!

A thankful son,

In Christ,

Pastor Orval Wirkkala
