99 To Go

  I am a partaker of the promise in Christ. Ephesians 3:6  "That the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, of the same body, and partakers of His promise in Christ through the gospel." NKJV
  "And this is God's plan: Both Gentiles and Jews who believe the Good News share equally in the riches inherited by God's children. Both are part of the same body, and both enjoy the promise of blessings, because they belong to Christ Jesus." JCB

  A couple of weeks ago at church, the image of the Kabbalah, the Jewish Tree of Life was shown. It's not the first time this image was recently brought to my attention. It was part of an archaeology program I've been watching on TV.
  I became interested in it because, as a Christian, it lays down the foundation of God's promises to us. The entire Old Testament lays the foundation for the New Covenant in Christ.
   It also ties into yesterday's final thought. "To everyone who is victorious I will give fruit from the tree of life in the paradise of God." Rev 2:7
  It is an illustration of life's journey with interconnected pathways linking each of the ten blessings. Looking at this image through a Christian perspective, I see the Cross of Christ clearly within the connecting pathways at the top centre.

  A picture paints a thousand words.
  A picture that represents the unity between Jew and Gentile brought about through the sacrifice of Jesus.

  I don't know what else to say except to give thanks for whoever created this depiction of the Tree of Life. I can also give thanks that it has been around a very long time.
