“ But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done.” (Lu 24:21 AV)
Hello, brothers, the “promised redemption” is walking and talking with you right now. You later admit that your “heart burned within you” when He spoke, but you did not recognize Him until He broke bread with you. Then you remembered, “This is my body, broken for you”. And as soon as you realized who He was, He was gone. So indeed you are redeemed, even if not in the way you had expected.
This is the mystery of the Kingdom. The brothers had all been raised hearing each of the scriptures Jesus read to them that day, yet they were still not looking for the resurrection. Why not? Because the Word may be read with the mind, and you can get a picture of what it says, unless you read with the regenerated Spirit, you will not get it.
Father, I pray that when I read Thy Word I might be fully energized in spirit, and might receive revelation, by which I live day by day. Amen.
