Pictures (or types and shadows) about Jesus can be found throughout the whole of the Bible.
We looked at one yesterday in DIG where we saw that Joshua leading the people into the Promised Land was a picture about Jesus.
Once you understand about pictures, types and shadows it opens up the Bible in a whole new and exciting way.
Take for example the account about Noah’s Ark.
We know that the Ark was built so that Noah and his family could survive the flood.
The only way to be saved from drowning was to be in the Ark.
If you were outside of the Ark there was no way to be saved, only certain death.
Outside of the Ark and a man was certain to be lost.
The only way to safety and security was to be in the Ark
This is clearly a picture about the saving work of Jesus Christ.
Jesus said He was the only way to the Father, the only way to salvation (John 14 v 6).
Today if you are “in Christ” i.e. saved, you are assured of safety and security.
If you are not “in Christ” I am afraid that you are lost.
The account of Noah’s Ark when used as a picture of Jesus helps explain His finished work, His work of saving grace.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for the finished work of Jesus Christ and thank you for His saving grace”.
John 14 v 6…..Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me
