It has been said that there is a scarlet thread of the blood of Jesus Christ that runs all throughout the Bible. Today I found proof of that statement in the book of Luke. Luke wrote, “And He [Jesus] said unto them, ‘These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning Me’” (Luke 24:44). Did you see the path of the Gospel message of Jesus all through the Bible? He mentioned (1) the law of Moses; (2) the psalms; and (3) the prophets. That is the entirety of the Old Testament.
How is it possible that this message could have been known of Moses, the writers of the psalms, and the prophets before Jesus was ever born on this earth? There is a simple answer for us today. The book we hold in our hands that we call the Bible is breathed out of the mouth of an eternal God Who knows no limitations of time. He is eternal, and the book He breathed into the words on the pages of our Bible is also eternal! INCREDIBLE! AWESOME! UNBELIEVABLE! These words are thrown around today about a catch someone makes in a football or baseball game … a shot someone makes in a basketball game … after hearing an impressive vocalist sing a beautiful song, or an instrumentalist playing a skillful song.
I am sitting here writing this in awe of the privilege I have of having my very own copy of this incredible book. I not only have a copy of this eternal book, but I know the Author because of the Savior of Luke 24! You see … He came for me! Tears come to my eyes as I think about that! He came for me. Wretched … sinful … hopeless … helpless … unrighteous … impure … unholy … and a great deal more horrible descriptions for me … He came for me! I cannot help but think that Moses, the psalmists, and the prophets felt the same as me. You see, we are all in the same boat! Take comfort in the truth that you have such value to God that He sent His one and only begotten Son just to rescue you from the pit of Hell. He came to lift you from the miry clay of Hell and set your feet upon the rock of Heaven. He is the “Scarlet Thread” that was promised in Genesis 3:15 and carried the plan of God for redemption all the way through to its completion. That same plan is still effective today. That same salvation is still the only way to Heaven. That same Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. That same Jesus and that scarlet thread of His blood is still available to whosoever will today! What great news we have to share with our world today!
