And Moses appreciates you remembering him, no doubt.
We know how divisive Rapture doctrine is, and I don't know what I'd think if it was based on my own reasoning and interpretation of teachings. But it's not. I've told of the flat out supernatural experience of my lesson on the Rapture before, and it came within a couple days of having an angel(or heavenly being, if you prefer) actually come sit beside me and release me from a spiritual 'bind' I'd been caught in. (foolish me)
So good for me, EXCEPT that the command from the beginning was 'Tell the people". The message came as it should have and was a confirmation of what He'd already told me. This time He gave me an Old Testament story accompanied by His explanation: Genesis 29. The sister brides of Jacob.
I had to laugh over the description of Leah's appearance as she represents the church. She just didn't look quite right to God's 'chosen people'. I can imagine them thinking, 'why would she be first? Rachel is the one He loves! He came first for Rachel.' And we know the answer to that.
There's so much more in the story that I haven't looked at; their children, for one.
Rachel had an 'idol' problem. It will be fun to look deeper into it all.
But the first bride, the first harvest of the labor is the church. Jacob, as Kingsman Redeemer, had to labor another seven years for Rachel.
So I'm happy for the writings of Gad. Maybe less information is more sometimes.
(A quiet mind speaking from more quiet times. Not the 'information overload' we live in.)
Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
