Daily Bread 7/6/2023


    Daily Bread – July 6, 2023 (The Fifth Day – Genesis 1:20-23) Genesis 28:17 – And he was afraid and said, “How fearful is this place; for this is none other than the House of God, and this the Gate of Heaven. The House Of God Did you realize that you are walking around in the House of God? We look up into the sky and are fascinated by the beauty of the clouds and splendor of the heavenly colors, but little do we realize we are staring into something that goes beyond our wildest imaginations. God gave this revelation to Jacob, so he could understand more about the One Whom he was serving. One day God also allowed the eyes of Elisha’s servant to be opened, and he was able to see all of the Heavenly host that surrounded them. Just like Jacob, he realized that they were standing in the House of God – as he beheld the angels and chariots of the Lord filling all the earth (2 Kings 6:17). One day in the future, the heavens will be rolled back like a scroll, and all men will be able to look up into Heaven and see Jesus sitting at the right of God. I am sure that when Jesus stood before the tomb of Lazarus and He looked up into Heaven saying, “I thank You, Father, that You hear Me,” He was seeing more than just the clouds passing by. He was able to see something very similar to what Steven saw as He was about to be stoned (Acts 7:55-56). If our eyes were opened, we would see that the glory and splendor of the throne of God is right about cloud-level where Jesus suddenly disappeared before the eyes of the disciples as He ascended up into Heaven.
