Documenting 2.

 In my early morning prayer between 3.30 and 4AM between lull of sleep and wakefulness I was suddenly up and alert looking at a vision of a ram caught in a  thicket.What struck me about the Ram was the golden horn which just really caught my attention.I finished my prayer and as I went back to sleep I was wondering what I had seen.I told my mother casually when she woke up and I sent a whattsaap message to my sister.I knew I had to go back to my bible to find the context.I had my session of bible reading ,my morning quiet time ,and I got ready for work.I found the pastor's wife standing outside my gate.She wanted some time in the afternoon to speak to me about a young man who needed some help with further studies in biblical mandate.

He was someone known to the pastor's wife from the neighbouring state and was looking for sponsor for the last bit of push towards doing doctrate studies .

He came in the afternoon.By God's grace I could help him.

I was still trying to unroll the mystery of the ram in the thicket with a golden horn/

What I concluded was ,Abraham when he was about to sacrifice Isaac in obedience to the Lord is stopped by the angel and the Lord provides the Ram in a thicket.Abraham names the place Jevohah Jireh-meaning -the Lord will provide,

The golden horn is depicted in the bible in the alter of incense which I understand Aaron was to light night and day and offer sacrifice once a year and depicts the power in the prayer of his saints.

Three conclusions-

1.Our God reigns.

2.He hears the prayers of his saints.

3.What a privellage and honour it is to be a part of what our master and the Lord .Jesus is doing.

Ephesians 3 vs 20

' Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.'

Foxes in the vineyard..

I am trying to beat the Benaras heat with crayons,colour,psalms,gospels,song of Solomon,and Audrey Assad. Song of Solomon 2:15 says,'Catch for us the foxes ,the little foxes that ruin the vineyards,our vineyards that are in bloom..'How often I have to go beyond the movenment of everyday living to commune with my King before I can detect the little foxes.How he yearns for us to come to him broken ,blind and bleeding to be shown these little foxes we would willingly give up for our Master. Audrey Assad was introduced to me in a baptist church during my years's furlough.I remember one of the pastors sharing how she while walking alone up the Mount Everest base camp was helped by listening to this song even while she plodded up the hill which was cold,tough ,tiring and which at that time seemed scary and endless.A beautifully meditative track ,I say. In my personal reading I have been struck by a phrase from the book of Romans which says '...We do not support the root

The Lion of Judah(learning from Sprout)

LION OF JUDAH - (Learning from Sprout). In Revelation, we learn about John’s vision on the island of Patmos where he is exiled. John was the disciple who was said to be closest to Jesus. He lay with his head on Jesus’ chest during the Lord’s ministry on earth. Yet when he sees Him in Revelation , he was so in awe of His majesty that he is said to have fallen at the feet of Jesus as if he were dead. In Revelation 5 ,John sees a book on the right-hand side of God sealed seven times.An angel is proclaiming in a loud voice- ‘Who is worthy to open the book and loose the seals thereof?’ They found no man worthy on earth,nor in heaven ,nor under the earth worthy to let alone open the seal but also to look upon it,so John says he wept much because there was no one found worthy. V5 5 says ‘And one of the elders saith unto me ,weep not :behold the Lion of the tribe of Judah ,the root of David ,hath prevailed to open the book ,and loose the seven seals thereof.’ When John beholds , pe
