Bible Note Quote: "Here I am, like Moses, but much less worthy, on the "backside of the dessert" as it were, and while peering across the apparently barren landscape of my life there is a burning bush that captures my attention and my heart. The fire of the bush corresponds with the fire in my heart and I cannot help but follow... The fire still burns!"
quote from The Fire of God's Word Still Burns! ~ ~ (see former quotes here: Bible Note Quote Archives)

Enrichment on the Road to Emmaus

Enrichment on the Road to Emmaus

Recently, towards the end of my time of prayer in the morning, right before going to work, the Lord impressed my heart and mind with the reality of the risen Savior's presence, applying some truth from Luke chapter twenty-four. I will now try to share some thoughts.

"And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight. And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?" (Luke 24:31,32)

In Luke 24:13-35, we read the account of how our risen Lord, Jesus Christ, taught the two disciples on the road to Emmaus and how He revealed Himself to them and immediately vanished from their sight. It is a wonderful scene!

Times of Darkness

At first, the passage tells us that "their eyes were holden that they should not know him". This was part of the process of confirming their faith in preparation for the moment when He would reveal Himself to them. During this time in which He hid His identity from them, he taught them from the Scriptures all things regarding His death and resurrection.

-- Notice that their hearts burned within them even while they did not know Who He was. How often true followers of Christ seem to experience a time in which He seems to hide Himself from them. Yet, He is still with them!

-- Also, there was a purpose for the darkness.
- It helped them to learn.
- It tested their faith.

Blessed Assurance!

After Jesus was done instructing the two disciples, he sat down with them to eat, and suddenly "their eyes were opened, and they knew him". Imagine their joy upon seeing the risen Lord right before their eyes! It was enough. Now, they were fully convinced of the reality of His resurrection. Also, they discussed how He had affected them even when they had not realized that He was there.

How many times have the saints expressed that they did not feel His presence while going through some dark, troublesome time? And yet, how many times have the same souls expressed that after they came out of the tunnel, the Lord's revelation of Himself to their spiritual eyes was so much more brilliant and reassuring than they could have ever hoped it would be!

Praise God for our ever-living Savior! Thank God that He makes Himself known to my own unworthy heart!

Dear friends, if you do not know what I am talking about, God wants to do the same for you too.

Repent of your sins (be sorry and forsake them) and believe the gospel (the simple truth about Jesus, the Son of God, Who gave His life to save us all and arose again from the dead. He will come again for His children some day)! Call upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and He will save you!

"Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." (Act 4:12)
