The Holy Spirit, and the way He reveals things in the Word when we ask Him to teach us, is AWESOME! I love it when God tweaks my view of Scripture, making me see the familiar in a totally new light.
For instance, here are some pieces that came together for me at some point last year.
1. We know the Israelites were to use no leaven at Passover. This was part of them being
prepared and ready to leave as soon as God (through Pharaoh) gave the Word.
2. We know leaven represents sin throughout Scripture.
3. We know that many things in the Old Testament are types and shadows (AKA prophecies)
of what later happens in the New Testament.
4. The Exodus, itself, is prophecy! It foreshadows our exodus from this earth at the Rapture.

moment’s notice. Even the end times transfer of wealth that we hear so much about is
foreshadowed by the Jews requesting and receiving all sorts of valuable things from their
The Word of God is SO COOL.
