In Genesis, we see the plan of redemption hidden within the stories of this book.
I am going to take three chapters, and attempt to prove just that. (22,23,24)
In chapter 22, there are 2 main characters; Abraham & Isaac. (The crucifixion)
In chapter 23, we see Sarah (How natural Israel had to be removed for the Gentiles to be grafted in).
In chapter 24, Abraham, Isaac, and Eliazar. (Abraham = father, Isaac = son, Eliazar = A type of the Holy Spirit)
Jesus was led to Calvary, which is Latin for Golgotha, a hill or mountain.
The clave the wood and laid it upon Isaac.
They laid Jesus on a cross, made of wood, on a mountain, in Jerusalem.
The Parallel – Everything you see in Genesis chapter 22 is a picture of Calvary.
Abraham said, “Stay here while the lad and I go yonder to worship, but we shall return”
Jesus said, “They’re going to put me in a grave, but on the third day I will arise”
Isaac said to his father, “Where is the lamb?”
Abraham said, “God himself shall provide a lamb”
(But a ram showed up. Not a lamb, but a ram. There is a difference)
The Bible says, that while Abraham was coming to Mariah that he saw the place afar off.
Place = heb. Hamakomb. Afar off = heb. Merahok.
If we were driving, and I said that I saw something afar off, you would assume that in the distance I saw something.
It does not necessarily mean that in the original.
In fact, “Hamakomb”, in the Hebrew, is a name for God.
Because, God is the place, and God is everyplace, and there is no place where God is not.
Therefore, He is at all places all of the time.
He’s omnipresent. He’s up and down, in and out, left and right, back and forth, top and bottom. He’s as high as you want to go. (Low, deep, wide).
