An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Cross References

(Pro 30:4 KJV)  Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son's name, if thou canst tell?

This verse should bring a number of other scriptures to mind.  The first part is reflection of the conversation God has with Job.  It is used to remind you about who God is.  Strangely enough, we have reference to His name.  That refers to another place where God and Moses were having a discussion, and the name of the Yahweh comes up.

So far any upstanding young Jew would know what is going on.  So far it’s clear.  And then you throw in this bit about the name of His Son.  His Son?  God has a Son?  That doesn’t make sense to the average Jew.  But it makes sense to the average Christian.

So? Are we dealing here with the Trinity?  Are we dealing with something we’ve never heard of before?  Isn’t it amazing the things that you find when you read and pay attention?
