In the previous article, Part One of The Lamb of Moriah, we reflected upon the fact that Abraham’s first son Ishmael was disinherited and cast out of his household for mocking his younger half-brother, the promised and awaited son Isaac, while Isaac was being weaned from his mother.

Isaac was the long-awaited birth of a son whom the Lord YHVH had promised Abraham for almost a quarter century. God revealed that through Isaac He would bless Abraham’s offspring to become a great nation. Further, all nations of the world would be blessed through his lineage.

Hence, we began by considering how Isaac’s birth was initially doubted by his mother, even laughed at, and from there we considered the mockery and ridicule he briefly endured as a child. These things foreshadow the promised Son of God and how He was ill-treated by many of His brethren in Judea. Not only was He mocked and ridiculed, but many Jews did not believe that the Messiah would actually be born after centuries of the nation waiting, although the Lord YHVH promised that the Messiah would arrive to bring blessings to Israel and all nations.

Moreover, the life of Isaac was designed by God to foreshadow Christ, which is why correlating the two lives takes very little effort or imagination by Bible enthusiasts once they begin to consider them. In this second article, we will elaborate upon this assertion and continue in the story of Isaac with parallels to Christ.  

A Promised Son Our Own Way
.
Abraham and Sarah had grown old waiting on the Lord to fulfill His promises of them having a son, and Sarah actually laughed in the Lord’s presence at the thought of them conceiving and producing a child. Likewise, Israel had awaited (and many scoffed at) the coming of Messiah for over a millennium before Christ was born. Sarah’s lack of faith in the promises of God led to Ishmael’s birth through her Egyptian handmaiden Hagar. To simplify it, Sarah and Abraham sought to accomplish God’s promises of a son in their own way, much as many religious Jews sought to fulfill messianic prophecies in their own way- some with false messiahs and other with religious deeds in which they believed could hasten the arrival of the Messiah.
.
Even after Christ was born, Jews were divided over Him, with some blessing Him as the fulfillment of the promises as others mocked and ridiculed. Indeed, to this day the promised Son of the true Father of Israel is mocked and not believed, even as many religious Jews do various deeds that they believe can hasten their Moshiach’s coming.
.
Again, Ishmael grew into a teenager who likewise scoffed at Sarah’s son Isaac, even as Sarah first secretly scoffed at the Word of the Lord YHVH. Thus, Sarah and Ishmael are comparable via the fact that they both mocked/scoffed concerning Isaac, just as many Jews and Muslims mock and scoff at God having a Son; the former mocks mostly at Yeshua being born into the world as their long-awaited Messiah, but they will repent, and the latter mocks Christ’s crucifixion for sins and ascension (separation/weaning from Jerusalem). Both, however, mock at Christ being God’s Son. Muslims thought it was so important to deny Christ’s divinity that they wrote that God has “no son” all over the inside walls of the Dome of the Rock (supposedly their third holiest shrine).
.
Israel- all true Jews– will come around to the truths of the Son of God, like Sarah, at the rebuke of Moses and Elijah (i.e., turn back their hearts to love Him), whereas Islam will be cast out of the Promised Land at the beginning of the Great Sabbath millennium. There is no place for the false religion of Islam in the coming Kingdom of Heaven. (NB: This truth is not about racial identity, such as most of Islam consisting of Arabs per se, but it comes because of their religion and as a reckoning for ancient truths at the return of the Son of God, when all religious lies are cast down.)

Messiah To Rebuild Temple, Muslim Dome of Rock Currently Pollutes Temple Mount
The Messiah to Rebuild the Temple of YHVH Where the Muslim Dome of Rock is Currently.

Go through, go through the gates! Prepare the way for the people; build up, build up the highway! Take out the stones [clear the stumbling stones]. Lift up a banner for the peoples! Indeed the LORD [YHVH] has proclaimed to the end of the world: “Say to the daughter of Zion [to Jerusalem rebuilt], ‘Surely your salvation [Yesha, Yeshua] is coming; behold, His reward [recompense for justice] is with him, and His work before Him.’” And they shall call them the Holy People, The Redeemed of the LORD; and you shall be called Sought Out, A City Not Forsaken. (Isa. 10-12) NKJV; intrpl. mine 

Islam and the Waters of the Word
.
The religionists of Islam, via their founder Mohammad (a liar, thief, murderer, hypocrite, and the “False Prophet” of Revelation), claim that they have an Ishmael-inheritance of the Promised Land, and most Muslims assert that certain prophetic Scriptures actually attest to their theological foundation and Mohammadan eschatology. For the majority of biblical passages that cannot be twisted for Mohammad, that promise Israel has a glorious future under the Messiah, they allege- without literary proof or empirical evidences- that prophecies in the Holy Bible were corrupted, leaving the Quran alone as the perfect and final revelation of their deity Allah (not Elohim YHVH of Scripture, no matter what the Bishop of Rome or anyone else says). Hence, they have their own replacement theology against Christians and Jews, and both are to be submitted to second class slaves or destroyed so that the world can be given to Allah.
.
After Hagar and Ishmael were cast out, the text in Genesis immediately proceeds to tell a story about a controversy over Abraham’s well- a place for watering their family herds and crops. A Philistine and his servants who dwelled alongside Abraham’s household boldly claimed his well as their own. This intermediary story about the well controversy is no mere coincidence, rather it leads into the story of Isaac’s figurative sacrifice. Together, the story of Ishmael being cast out and the story of the well belonging to Abraham serve as shadows of symbolism to let us know that the disinherited ones (Muslims) who claim Abraham as their forefather, and also claim the written Word of God (i.e., the “wellspring of salvation”) as their rightful possession (as heirs of the land of Israel and the world) will either admit to the covenant wellspring of Christ, forsaking the Islamic deception, or be cast out of the Promised Land. God can provide waters of salvation to Muslims who thirst and cry out, just as He did for Ishmael and Hagar at the well, but the Father will not surrender the true waters of the Word in which He has brought forth for His blessed nation. If is for the disinherited mockers of the Promised Son to cry out and submit, not for the faithful Household of Abraham to submit to their demands and false doctrines of muddied, trampled waters.
.
Many Christians are surprised when they first read the mixed fruit of the Quran, since they find several biblical persons (Patriarchs, Matriarchs, Hebrews, Jews) in its contents, and they wonder if it is perhaps a holy book of truths that Jews and Christians have somehow misjudged or overlooked. But not only is the Quran of a completely different spirit, but the sacrifice of the Lamb of God is missing, unlike the Old Testament (Isa. 53) and the New Testament. The Muslim religion is something wholly invented without a solid, historical foundation, nearly identical to the latter claims of the Mormon religion- that a perfect and last revelation was brought to correct the corrupted record of Scripture by the angel Gabriel, revealed to a single, illiterate man (or historically ignorant in Joseph Smith’s case).
.
Although some Scriptures and biblical names are utilized in the Quran and Book of Mormon, they mix lies and babble to confuse naive people who are not rooted and grounded in knowledge of the Word. Just as Abraham was not deceived by the Philistines’ claim on the well, the elect of God are not deceived by religions that erroneously claim the Bible as their foundation. Anyone can write a book that sounds holy and pretends to speak for God, and throw in biblical characters along the way, but those who know Scriptures and the Holy Spirit easily discern the counterfeits. Also, Muslim Philistines of today (Palestinians) can claim the land via any book, but God the Father is not deceived.  
.
The evidences of Abraham’s possession of the well were witnessed with a covenant: a blood sacrifice of seven lambs. The fact that Islam denies both Christ as the Son of the Father and His sacrifice as the Lamb of God justifies their disinheritance in the coming Kingdom of the Messiah, although they can still partake of the New Covenant and make peace with the Father. In other words, only those who acknowledge Abraham’s covenant in blood for the waters of the sheep (the people of the Father’s flock) will abide in the family when the Lamb of God returns.
.
The mysterious things that Father Abraham did were orchestrated by the Father of all Israel (i.e., Elohim YHVH) to profess Christ and His sacrifice for the elect of seven millennial days (the appointed age from Adam). This is what the seven lambs of sacrifice meant in the shadow covenant given in the story. Abraham will sit down with the Christ in the Kingdom of Heaven, confessing Him yet again, even as the mocking children among Muslims, Jews, and Gentiles are cast out (cf. Matt. 8:11-12; Jn. 8:54-59).
.
There is no real controversy over the Truth: the Promised Son. Indeed, all who believe that their words have the power to cast Truth down to the ground are sadly mistaken about what is coming upon them, for the Lord sends one perfected in the art of mockery to turn back their hearts before there is no more time, and Holy Moses goes with him for one last battle for the Truth. God will have the last laugh and have all His scoffing enemies in derision (see Ps. 2). The messengers of the Lord have but one allegiance, which is to Yeshua haMashiach for YHVH the Father, and they are appointed to suffer martyrdom for this faith after their wonders for witnessing to the world. Those who refuse to hear them and confess the blood of the Lamb will be cast out of the Promised Land when Messiah returns.

Yeshua Carrying Cross For His Sacrifice
Yeshua Carrying Cross For His Sacrifice

Hence, in this article we will continue our study of the Lamb of Moriah just as the Bible leads us: to the near-sacrifice of Abraham’s only begotten son- his beloved son Isaac- on a hill in ancient Jerusalem (i.e., the Temple Mount). A single thread connects the disinheritance of Ishmael, the argument over the well with lambs sacrificed for a covenant (see Jer. 31:31-34), and the beloved son of the father brought to a sacrifice on Mount Moriah: the mockery at, and sacrifice of, the Promised One: the Father’s beloved Son, Jesus Christ.

Now after six days [on the Sabbath] Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, led them up on a high mountain by themselves; and He was transfigured before them [a vision (see Matt. 17:9) of His glorious return on the Great Sabbath]. His face shone like the sun [the Sun of Righteousness, see Mal. 4:2], and His clothes became as white as the light [see Rev. 1:12-16]. And behold, Moses and Elijah [“two witnesses”] appeared to them, talking with Him. Then peter answered and said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here; if You wish, let us make here three tabernacles [Sukkot, gathering of the elect]: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.” While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and suddenly a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him!” (Matt. 17:1-5) NKJV; intrpl. & emp. mine

THE MESSIANIC ENTRANCE

Entry Of The King
Entry Of The King

Abraham, always faithful, took his beloved son to Mount Moriah to sacrifice him as God had commanded. The LORD specifically called Isaac “beloved” because the name David means beloved. One of several honorable titles that believing Jews knew for their Mashiach, as they awaited His revelation in Israel (ancient Judea), was the “Son of David.” Moreover, Elohim YHVH called Isaac his “beloved son” when commanding Abraham to sacrifice him because the true “Son of David” would suffer such a fate in the fullness of the appointed time (i.e., at 4,000 years from Adam’s beginning).

As for God selecting Mount Moriah, the word Moriah means the chosen, for indeed our Lord YHVH is perfect in orchestrating His enigmatic truths in the lives of His servants. Isaac’s fate (as a willing participant in the sacrifice) foreshadowed the Chosen One, the Son of David, and these things were written in the shadows for all who would come to believe in the true “Lamb of God” (cf. John 1:29; 3:16).

Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by [oral] traditions from your fathers; but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times [closing of the age] for you. (1 Pet. 1:18-20) KJV; intrpl. & emp. mine
.
King of Kings, Lord of Lords
King of Kings, Lord of Lords

As affirmed earlier, Mt. Moriah was the key pinnacle in the mountain range that the Temple was built upon, and some Jews believe that the stone inside the Islamic Dome of the Rock is the very Temple stone upon which Isaac was almost sacrificed by Abraham.

Thus, not only do Muslims claim something potentially sacred for their rebellious religion, but, again, inside the dome, written in the language of serpents, are statements asserting that “Allah has no son” and “Allah has no companion.” In this I agree; indeed, Allah has no son or friend because there is no true god named Allah, but our Elohim YHVH does indeed have a Son (see Ps. 2), and He is also called “the Man whom is My Companion.”

Hence, the battle over the Temple Mount is crucial for fundamental truths of the Judeo-Christian faith, and rebuilding the Divine Temple comes from the commandment and blessings of the only true God and Creator.

Then Solomon began to build the house [Temple] of the LORD at Jerusalem in mount Moriah, where the LORD [YHVH] appeared to David his father, in the place that David had prepared in the threshingfloor of Ornan the Jebusite. (2 Chron. 3:1) KJV; intrpl. mine
.
As a lamb is dumb to the fact of its sacrifice when it is brought to the sheerer and slaughter (see Isa. 53:7), Isaac obeyed and followed his father Abraham in complete trust:
.
And Abraham rose early in the morning, and saddled his ass [i.e., jackass, donkey], and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave [split] the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went to the place of which God had told him. (Gen. 22:3) KJVl intrpl. mine
.
Two millenniums later, the Son of God would make a similar entrance into Jerusalem, fulfilling Torah shadows with the Substances of the living parable. Before the Messiah, the Head of the Body of Believers, carried His cross/tree to Calvary (or Golgotha in Hebrew, meaning place of the Skull/Dead Head), He first entered the city with two helpers and riding a donkey:
.
And when they drew near unto Jerusalem, and were come to Bethphage [lit. House of Figs, Israel], unto the mount of olives [symbolic of two divided peoples coming together under Moses and Elijah, see Zech. 4:1-14; 14:1-8: Rom. 11:12-32], then sent Jesus two disciples, saying unto them, “Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find as ass [donkey] tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me. And if any may say ought [anything] unto you, ye shall say, ‘The Lord hath need of them.'” All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet [see Zech. 9:9], saying, “Tell the daughter of Sion [Zion, Jerusalem], ‘Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.'” And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them, and brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him thereon. And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way [pathway]; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way [prefiguring Sukkot]. And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, “Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.” And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved [stirred in their souls], saying, “Who is this?” (Matt. 21:1-10) KJV; intrpl. mine
.
Those who knew and comprehended the prophecies hailed Yeshua as their King, as the chosen Messiah and the prophesied Son of David, but others were not so certain or blessed with spiritual insight into the deep things of their God YHVH, such as how He moves in fulfilling prophecy and creating parables. Indeed, some lacked Abraham’s discernment, for he saw the Lord Yeshua from a prophetic distance and awaited the coming Kingdom.
.
Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place [of sacrifice] afar off. And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you. (Gen. 22:4-5) KJV; intrpl. mine
.
Abraham’s words are interesting because they suggest that he planned to return with his son Isaac, although he was ascending the hill of Mount Moriah to sacrifice him. Perhaps it was because he knew that God has the power to raise the dead and return life. And it is likely that- having seen the day of Christ from a distance- he knew that Isaac would yet live. As far as we know, the only instructions or sign that Abraham gave the two young men aiding him was that they would indeed return. This seems to foreshadow the only sign that Christ said that He would give to the people, which was His resurrection from the dead on the third day (the “sign of Jonah” in Matt. 12:39-40). Not only would Christ return from the tomb, but Abraham likely knew that He will return in the flesh on the morning of the third millennial day- from the time of the cross- to restore the Kingdom of Israel (see Hos. 6).

God Will Provide Himself A Sacrifice, PDI
God Will Provide Himself A Sacrifice, PDI

And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together. And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering? And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together. (Gen. 22:6-8) KJV; emp. mine

Abraham as the Father leading Christ to the sacrifice, and Isaac carrying the wood of his sacrifice on his back as Christ had carried the cross (see John 19:17), are easily discernible parallels, but Abraham carrying a torch and a knife may be a bit more difficult to correlate. Fire is symbolic of the Holy Spirit (see Rev. 4:), so the fire in Abraham’s hand seems to indicate that the foreshadowing near-sacrifice was within the Holy Spirit’s hand. The knife or a very small sword was an item used by the priests to both sacrifice the moedim animals and thereafter to eat with, to slice and divide food before puncturing it (or stabbing it) and lifting it to eat. From the perspective of the knife as a sword, the Word of God is often likened to one when His prophesied judgments are being fulfilled. From an ancient Hebrew perspective, the sword was a tool that both saved the people in war and put food on the table (see Judg. 7:13-14). Hence, the knife and the torch symbolize the Spirit and Word of God. (N.B. Messiah’s garment was parted at the cross (Luke 23:34).
.
In His love for creation, God is responsible for the cross, for He so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son to redeem those who would come to believe (John 3:16). Romans and Jews played their roles, and the cross was necessary for forgiveness of all of our sins, but it was a work ordained by the Father from the beginning. This is an important message in the similitude of Abraham going through the motions of sacrificing his son, for, as Prophet Isaiah wrote, we have “all fallen short of the glory” of Elohim YHVH.
.
Ram in thicketAnd the angel of the LORD called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham: and he said, Here am I. And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me. And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead [in substitution] of his son. (Gen. 22:11-13) KJV; emp. mine
.
Abraham told Isaac that the LORD would provide His own lamb of sacrifice, and, sure enough, a ram (mature male sheep) was found as a substitute. Abraham had shown his obedience in performing the foreshadowing sacrifice, and Abraham knew to obey the LORD when He intervened and provided His own sacrifice. This was a sign of the foreshadowing sacrifices of the Levitical priesthood ending in 70 A.D. and the New Covenant faith providing a substitute for sins for all who believe. Witnessing shadows only extend so far before the actual Substance in which they confess is given by our God. Figuratively, Isaac died and was resurrected, just as they descended down the mountain as Abraham said they would. (NB: There were two men in white at the ascension of Christ from the Mount of Olives, and they told the disciples that Christ would return as He left. See Acts 1:9-12.)
.
By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that received the promises offered up his only begotten son, of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called: Accounting that God was able to raise him up [resurrect him], even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure [figuratively]. (Heb. 11:17-19) KJV; intrpl. mine
.
Shadow unto shadow, the LORD has already revealed His will and panoramic picture of redemption for all who will learn in meekness of how He speaks in living parables. Every story and every detail has its place, and nothing at all is missing or out of place. We as rebellious mortals often choose to go our own ways, and believe what we choose to believe, but there is a transcendent Truth that will not forever be denied. The Messiah is coming, and the appointed time is almost upon us. Fools say in their hearts that there is no God, as written in Psalms, and they look for empirical evidences in the wrong places, but it is paramount for those of us who discern how God speaks, which is in parables and types, to teach others of numerous biblical confessions.
.
In conclusion of Abraham’s trying plight, the Lord YHVH provided His own sacrifice, and He did so marvelously, in a very revealing way: Behold, the head of a ram caught in a thicket. This witnesses to the Holy Head of all believers, the saved Body, dying in our stead at the hill of Golgotha. This is He who was crowned as King of Kings in thorns. This was the Chosen One of God- the manifestation of God among us. In Him we take refuge, for we discern all truths by the Holy Spirit fire of revelations and refinement, and the sword of His Word revolves in every direction. His eyes see to the ends of the earth, through the ages until all that He has determined is accomplished in the world.

Lamb of Redemption at 10,000 Years, Ten Days to God, Picture Mine

And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe, and said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands. Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him [without blemish]. Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns [thicket], and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man! When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault [sin, spot] in him. The Jews answered him, We have a law [Divine Instructions], and by our law he ought to [is supposed to] die, because he made himself the Son of God. When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more afraid; And went again into the judgment hall, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer. (John 19:2-9) KJV; intrpl. mine

Verily, it is true; they did have a Law that the Son of God should die for the sins of the nation and all who believe. All the prophets knew of the coming Suffering Servant Messiah (Mashiach ben Yoseph), for they knew the Word of God. Before John the Baptist said, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world,” Prophet Isaiah wrote that He would be sacrificed as a lamb “for the transgression of my people” (Isa. 53:8). And He would sprinkle “many nations” with His blood (see Isa. 52:15). Even the High Priest Caiaphas of the time prophesied that He should die according to the Law for the salvation of the people (see John 11:45-53).
.
And Abraham called the name of that place YHVH-Yireh [meaning, “YHVH will provide”]: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the LORD [in Jerusalem] it shall be seen [Christ would be sacrificed]. And the angel of the LORD called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time [indicating a second coming out of Heaven], and said, “By myself have I sworn [made a promise/covenantal oath], saith the LORD, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son: That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed [the Christ] shall possess the gate [entranceway] of his enemies [no man or woman can go to the Father except by Him: the Way, the Truth, and the Life]; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.” (Gen. 22:14-18) KJV; emp. & intrpl. mine
.
Clearly, God’s promise to Abraham far exceeds many exclusionary sects of today’s rabbinical Judaism, who pride themselves in the flesh while blaspheming the Lord our Messiah. Nor did God mean that Hollywood liberals or the approximate 68% of atheists among American Jews would be a great blessing to the world; clearly they are not, no more than any other race or group of rebellious sinners. And we know without doubt that God did not mean that His enemies among ACLU Jews or on the so-called “Supreme Court” would bless the world. Indeed, some of them are among God’s greatest enemies- secular humanist Jews and prideful liberal rabbis who keep other Jews in the darkness of ignorance and sin.
.
Undoubtedly, the prophecy concerns Christ, and all who believe- of Jews and Gentiles- through His sacrifice: the spiritual children of Abraham (see Gal. 3:7-9). Do not mistake this truth for Replacement Theology; God will finish performing all of His remaining promises and prophecies concerning the nation of Israel and Jewish people, but know that God looks into the hearts rather than at the flesh, and God rejects all fleshly pride as He favors those who humbly approach Him. He is not a respecter of persons, and He will fulfill His promises for the coming Kingdom at Israel for His own sake, and for those who love Him among Jews and Gentiles, near and far.
.
Now to tie the near-sacrifice of Isaac back into the former affirmations concerning the covenant made with the seven lambs at the wellspring of salvation, the Bible leaves us an expected ending to the story:
.
So Abraham returned unto his young men, and they rose up and went together to Beersheba [well of the oath/covenant]; and Abraham dwelt in Beersheba. (Gen. 22:19) KJV; intrpl. mine
.
Lamb of God Yeshua
Lamb of God Yeshua

The promised son returned to those who were waiting for him below, and he did not return alone: The father of many nations was with him (see John 8:29). Together, the father, the son, and those who waited upon him went back to dwell at the place in which the sacrificial covenant was originally made. Thereat, the whole household would live by the waters in which the father had brought forth in the earth for his sheep, his family. And from there they would learn of many new births into the family of God, even of the bride of the promised son (Gen. 22:20-24).

As for readers, all these things were, and are, signs from that which was first written in the shadows of their lives, even unto the return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Yeshua the Messiah.

And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And wither I go ye know, and the way ye know. (John 14:3-4) KJV
