When you put Jesus in the center, everything will be held together!
Let’s take a look at the following scriptures where Jesus is in front of us, He always goes before us, to make a way.
Numbers 10:33 Thus they set out from the mount of the LORD three days’ journey, with the ark of the covenant of the LORD journeying in front of them for the three days, to seek out a resting place for them.
On your part you put Jesus in the center on His part He will go in front of you to seek out a resting place for you.
Isaiah 52:12-14 (KJV) 12 For ye shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight: for the Lord will go before you; and the God of Israel will be your reward.
The God of Israel will be in front of you to clear the way, don’t worry about terror! God will go before you. We live in this fear mentality and Jesus is saying, don’t worry what about the future because I am already there.
19 And the Angel of God, who went before the camp of Israel, moved and went behind them; and the pillar of the cloud went from before their face, and stood behind them:
20 And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by night to these: so that the one came not near the other all the night.
Whenever you see the Angel of God in scripture (Angel with a Capital A) this is referring to Jesus, now Jesus is not an angel, Jesus is God. The word Angel is generic term for representative of God. This is His pre- incarnate form. The Angel of God (Jesus) went before Israel moved and went behind them, and the pillar of cloud went from before them and stood behind them.
Initially He was leading them in front and now the enemy is coming from behind, so He came between the camp of Egyptians and the camp of Israel and it was a cloud and darkness to the Egyptians, but it gave light to the Israelite’s.
Today we know that in a world that is dark, we can have light!
The Angel of the Lord speaks as God, identifies Himself with God, and exercises the responsibilities of God (Genesis 16:7-12; 21:17-18; 22:11-18; Exodus 3:2; Judges 2:1-4; 5:23; 6:11-24; 13:3-22; 2 Samuel 24:16; Zechariah 1:12; 3:1; 12:8). In several of these appearances, those who saw the angel of the Lord feared for their lives because they had “seen the Lord.” Therefore, it is clear that in at least some instances, the angel of the Lord is a theophany, an appearance of Jesus (God) in physical form.
