John 4:  as the Samaritan woman said – when Messiah comes He will tell us all things! Or in other words when the light of the world comes…He will reveal all things…because He is the substance of it all!

Pardes – Orchard – if you have or see all 4 levels in a scripture…you see the full picture or understanding…for the example, the 4 gospels (give fuller perspective) God teaches at all levels, many out of the same scripture…we receive nourishment (understanding) from all levels!

Phrase:  No man knows the day or hour…it is true at the P’shat level…but there is a deeper meaning!

Every teaching, every prophecy, every pattern, all the truth comes right out of the Beginning!

If the gospel message you preach isn’t in the Old Testament then there’s a problem…our approach to God must have first been foreshadowed in the Old if it is to be true.

What other patterns can you think of in Bible?  - w/o shedding of blood there is no remission; from death comes life; 6 days to work – 7th day of rest; morning and evening was first day etc, woman comes from or out of the man; the Word is creative…God spoke the Word and it produced (my Word shall not return void); the moon reflects the light of the Sun

Amos 3:7
Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. 

Why did the Lord determine to reveal His secrets to the prophets?  The prophets were God’s voice in the earth (the shofar’s of God)…one of the patterns that Genesis establishes, the spoken Word comes first then that which it was sent forth to accomplish…the Word of prophecy must be spoken…this is a cooperative effort!

Isa 55:11

So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper [in the thing] whereto I sent it.   God is also looking for intercessors…why?

This probably comes as no great surprise to any one here…but the world operates according to its own patterns!  What are some of the world’s patterns?

 Evolution, humanism (man centered world), liberalism, secularism, the first shall be first, the last shall be last…competitive spirit (survival of fittest), success is measured by possessions, materialism (laying up goods, acquiring more and more), situational ethics – whatever fits the situation, seeing is believing,

The wisdom of man is foolishness to God!  The world is on a different calendar, different cycles and seasons. The world exalts man, vain philosophies, not the wisdom of God.  …Isaiah 55:8

 Romans 12 – be not conformed to the pattern of this world…another pattern is the world’s calendar.  The seasons of God’s appointed times are totally ignored because the world’s schedule, calendar is so ingrained in us.  His warnings, His signs, that have been actually happening on days that are significant on His calendar but not on ours.


For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD    Good Pattern - a model that is considered to be worthy of imitation.

 

The law and the prophets were the two witnesses to Jesus the Messiah – they testified of Him that was to come!  Antitype – He’s the one everything is pointing to!
