Hi, God’s word for me today is in Isaiah 14:32 which says, “What answer shall be given to the envoys of that nation? “The Lord has established Zion, and in her his afflicted people will find refuge.”
So this verse is saying that the afflicted people will find refuge in Zion, just like how we find refuge in Jesus, because we are afflicted because of our sins, and in this case Zion is a picture of Jesus, because we can flee to find refuge in Jesus, but why do we have to flee to Him? Because He was (and is) perfect, and only a perfect sacrifice could (and did) atone for our sins, and that was Jesus, thank you so much Jesus.
So Jesus is our COR (city of refuge, or Christ our refuge) that are found in Numbers, ”
And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,“Speak to the people of Israel and say to them, When you cross the Jordan into the land of Canaan, then you shall select cities to be cities of refuge for you, that the manslayer who kills any person without intent may flee there. (ESV Numbers 35:9-11)
Also if the cities of refuge were formed a certain way, they could form a cross, because the Jordan river would be the middle part, and then the three cities of refuge on either side would form a cross, so Jesus is our COR, thank you Jesus.
Do you believe that Jesus died for your sins and that He is your city of refuge.
