Day 24 – Genesis 24

We don't read much of the character of Isaac. Abraham was active and aggressive, Isaac seems quiet and retiring. There is a glimpse of his character in verses 62 & 63. In this servant looking for a bride for his master's son, we have a beautiful picture of the Holy Spirit's work in the world today. He is searching out the bride for Christ, the heavenly Isaac. The family asks the girl Rebekah if she is willing to go with the man (verse 58). Notice her clear answer. Are you willing to follow the Holy Spirit? He can only guide you to one center on earth while you travel to your "Isaac". That Center is Christ. The Spirit of God cannot separate believers, this is the work of Satan. Are you willing to be led by the Spirit of God, or do we feel we have a right to make choices? To be gathered alone to the name of the Lord Jesus Christ is the work of the Spirit of God today. To followed unhesitatingly, is to be brought into a place of peace and joy only known when we act and do this.
V. 62-67 When we were reading at the end of chapter 22, we mentioned about Rebekah being born. Here now we see her just about to meet her future husband. Connect the two sections. We are the bride. We're just about to meet our beloved Lord Jesus! Here we read of "love" the second Time. Love of Christ for His bride. Do your remember the previous mention? The man who is accompanying Rebekah is a picture of the Holy Spirit. Take a minute to read how the Bible closes. Rev. 22:1717And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. (Revelation 22:17). Do you get the connection?
