Psalms encourages us to study to show ourselves approved. We are also reminded that if we know the truth, the truth will set us free. Jesus is the truth. He is the Alpha and the Omega. He is revealed from Genesis 1 to Revelation 22. John tells us that Jesus did it all. John 1:1-3 tells us that He created the universe and all that it contains. Later in the chapter, John says that Jesus is the light. He came into the world but the world did not recognize Him.
I have always been amazed that those that studied prophesy did not know Who He was. They couldn’t understand how He fit into their preconceived idea of Who He should be. The uneducated, the poor, those who were hungry for forgiveness and healing recognized Him and chose to follow Him, sometimes at the cost of their lives. They were not so blinded by things as were those who were ‘in the know’.
Many sat at His feet and learned of Him. They heard the words of life. They heard the guiding wisdom in parables they understood. We are not as lucky in that we don’t understand a lot of the references because our culture is so different. But we have something they did not have. We have God’s Word in written form that we can pick up at any time. We can search for answers without fear of being arrested or imprisoned. We can still sit at His feet if we take the time to get to know the One Who has given us eternal life. It is simply a matter of being open to spending time in His presence.
