Summary: Revelation of Lamb of God in the OT and NT is so beautiful. From the beginning we are able to see the divine plan of God to reveal His Son....
Lamb of God.
Rev. 5:4,5, 6 Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing in the center of the throne, encircled by the four living creatures and the elders. He had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth.

13 Abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram caught by its horns. He went over and took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son.
Jehovah jairah- God will provide for Himself
Abraham was in a desperate need. God provided for him.
You God will provide for your need.
Nothing is impossible for Him. If he can bring a lamb in that mountain, He can bring anything anywhere. Why we need top be worry about our finance, our bills, our health or our children. God knows that if Isaac was slain he will be able to bring him back to life from those ashes.
