  • Wherever I Open My Bible

    Wherever I Open My Bible author unknown (2) People
    Sent to Lou Newton from Glen B Smith


    I find my Lord in the Bible
    wherever I chance to look.
    He is the theme of the Bible,
    the center and heart of the book.
    He is the Rose of Sharon.
    He is the lily fair.
    Wherever I open my Bible,
    the Lord of the book is there.


    He, at the book's beginning
    gave to the earth its form.
    He is the arch of shelter
    bearing the brunt of the storm,
    the burning bush of the desert,
    the budding of Aaron's rod.
    Wherever I look in the Bible,
    I see the Son of God.

    The ram upon Mount Miriah,
    the ladder from earth to sky,
    the scarlet cord in the window
    and the serpent lifted high,
    the smitten rock in the desert,
    the shepherd with staff and crook,
    the face of my Lord I discover
    wherever I look in the book.

    He is the seed of the woman,
    the Savior virgin born.
    He is the Son of David
    with whom men rejected with scorn.
    His garments of grace and of beauty,
    the stately Aaron deck,
    yet He is a priest forever,
    for He is of Melchizedek.

    Lord of eternal glory whom John the Apostle saw,
    light of the golden city,
    lamb without spot or flaw.
    Bridegroom coming at midnight
    for whom the virgins look;
    wherever I open my Bible
    I find my Lord in the book.

    You know not what you do because you know not who He is.

    Satan is the angel of knowledge and he does not waste his time on anything for no reason.

          I noticed that the person who wrote it knew that Melchizedek was God, which is a rare revelation.


          Thanks Barry.
