MORNINGTIME 3707 

For the law HAVING A SHADOW OF GOOD THINGS TO COME, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure. By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the Body of Jesus Christ once for all. Hebrews 10:1,4,6,10. A short, simple explanation of these verses is, all the Old Testament rules and laws about animal sacrifices TEMPORARILY paying for your sins every year, over and over again, were but a shadow, a veiled image, a hint of Christ coming ONE TIME to shed His Blood to pay for ALL of Mankind's Sins, ONCE AND FOREVER. Moving on, EVERY GOOD THING YOU SEE, HEAR, FEEL, SMELL AND TOUCH, ARE BUT SHADOWS OF GOOD THINGS TO COME. I'll explain. When you hear beautiful piano playing, the laughter of a baby, the smell of fresh cut grass, the roar of the ocean, the crackle of a camp fire, these are all "Shadows" of GOoD Things to come. For example, good piano playing during Praise and Worship at church, is but a shadow of the most beautiful Music, Praise and Worship you'll hear, feel and experience when you see Christ in Heaven. The sweetest smells you sense now, are but a shadow of the Sweet Odors of your Prayers coming up before the Lord. The gold and silver rings you have on your hands now, are but a shadow of the Transparent Gold you will see in Heaven. This comparison list is endless as you look at the Lord's Handiwork around you and compare it to all He has Created in Heaven. So Enjoy Life, Experience all of God's Creation around you, and let these things Encourage you as you go about The Lord Business of Ministering Christ to a lost and dying world. Don't covet the Things, the Shadows, of this world, Covet Christ and your Home in Heaven. The Things Christ gives now are little shadows of how you WILL, Be Blessed.
