27. He is our Rock CONT’D.
- The Rock that is cleft for us. 1 Cor. 10:4, “And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.”
- He is the rock that gives honey; the sweetness of life. Psa. 81:16 “He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat: and with honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee.” I want that satisfaction that only Christ can give. One of the things that happens where there is no Christ is that things stink, things become tasteless. Jesus is the one who gives taste in a tasteless or bitter situation. Any life without Christ is tasteless, meaningless, pointless, useless. There is a fountain that flows from the clefts of the rock to nourish our spirit, soul and body. The blood of Jesus flows from the cleft of the rock. Blood carries the nourishment that the body needs. The spirit man is nourished by the precious blood of Jesus Christ and that is why the best place you can be is in the clefts of the rock in the secret places of the stairs, not loud but making progress and growing into maturity. First, you will be well nourished. You will be a well watered garden; ever flowing spring. You don’t die to begin to experience heaven, heaven begins here. You will hear the music of heaven and everything down here will pale into insignificance. It amazes me that Christians, after tasting Christ, think that something is out there that can really satisfy. Nothing out there can satisfy. I found that out from my personal experience when I decided to seek and discover ‘the truth’. I saw the futility of chasing shadows. I tasted alcohol but it was just too bitter for my liking. Other things I tried to do did not go well. Only Christ can satisfy. One of the terrible things that the enemy is doing in this end time is that he is attacking children of God with scarcity; things are drying up – things are shrinking and becoming more expensive. If we learn to tap into the blessings of the rock; he will supply all our needs according to his riches in glory.
- Jesus Christ is not only the rock of our salvation, he is the rock of our protection, preservation, provision, progression, perfection and the rock of our promise. In him we live and move and have our being. May this be our testimony in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
