John 5:39-- TYPES OF JESUS CHRIST IN THE O.T. 1-10-09

Today I want to talk just for a little while on some of the many {types} of Jesus Christ that we see in the O.T.

First of all let me say that there are various people, & sacrificial offerings as well as such things as, Manna, & The Temple, & Foundation stones and cornerstones, and also Jacob’s ladder, as well as many other things that are typical and pictures of the Lord Jesus.

Our text verse say’s:

John 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

So today Lord willing I’ll try and point out a few of these Types.

Noah’s Ark is a real good picture of the Lord Jesus. Noah’s ark is an early type of Christ. The people of Noah’s time were condemned to death by their sin. But God found faith and righteousness in Noah and therefore provided him and his family with a way of salvation from the coming flood: the ark.

And God has also made a WAY of salvation from the wrath to come in the safety of the ARK of the Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Thessalonians 1:10 And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

Noah believed God and by faith built the ark, and when the flood came, he and his family took refuge in the ark and were spared death.

Hebrews 11: 7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house --

Because of his faith, Noah was rewarded and saved.

God said in Genesis 6:18 But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into** the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons’ wives with thee.”

Well, what does an Ark do any way?

An ark is a vessel that carries or contains something. Jesus Christ as our Ark contains our hope and our salvation.

An ark also carries its contents to a destination, just as Christ carries us through this life and delivers us safely on to Heavens shore and eternal life. –by the way we that are saved have eternal life now, we’re not waiting until we die to receive eternal life, we have eternal life now, from the moment we were saved.

The ark provided safety for Noah and his family, just as Christ provides safety for us. Noah and his family possibly fell down many times inside the Ark, but never did any of them ever fall out, God had shut the door.

Genesis 7:16---and the LORD shut him in.

And let me say “The “Door” is also a picture of Jesus Himself, Jesus said in John 10: 9I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

Let me remind us too, that the “flood” was typical of the Tribulation that’s yet to come on the earth just after the rapture of the True Church, Noah and his family are types of Israel that will be brought through the Tribulation, that is “one third ”of them according to;

Zechariah 13:8 8And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.

Enoch, was a picture of the “Church” being taken out of the world before the Tribulation, he was removed before the flood. Taken out alive.

Genesis 5:24** And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him. God sent the flood in Gen.7:** Not a drop of the watery flood could get in side the Ark, because the Ark had been sealed with “pitch”

Genesis 6:14--and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.

And the sealing with “pitch” is a type of the Holy Spirit sealing us.

Ephesians 4:30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

We’re safe and secure in the Ark of the Lord Jesus Christ; the storms of this life may beat upon our earthly vessels, but will never cause the smallest leak in the Solid Ark of the Lord Jesus.

We’re safe in Jesus.

2 Timothy 2:10-- that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.

---------------------------

Another good type of the Lord Jesus in the O.T. was Jacob’s Ladder that he saw in his dream.

Genesis 28:12 And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it. Jesus said that He is the reality to which the ladder pointed. Jacob had saw in a dream the reunion of heaven and earth through the One Mediator, Jesus Christ, which is now brought to reality both for Jacob and for all believers.
