Revelation In Time

So much remains the same; Yet everything is different. 

We take communion regularly.

The communion tables says, "This do in remembrance of Me." 

Back in the tabernacle, the sacrifices were regular, too, but they did not take away sin. 

Even there, then, they were a reminder.

"But instead, those sacrifices actually reminded them of their sin year after year." Hebrews 4:3

Aslan urged Jill to, "Remember. Remember." 

This is what all worshippers must do. 

Past worshippers, standing where they were on the timeline, were remembering their sins and looking forward to a future sacrifice.  

Then Christ came in fullness of time.

He died on the cross and became that sacrifice that removes sin once for all. 

And He "took the bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples saying, 'This is my body broken for you; do this in remembrance.'" Luke 22:19

So now, thousands of years later, where we stand on the timeline, we are always looking back at a past sacrifice. 

Such is the nature of a revelation that comes into time and space; It takes the shape of the space it's in. 

God revealed Himself to us here and then and now. 

So some of us look forward while some look back.

Some were even standing at the foot of the cross! 

But all adore the same Christ. 

All remember their sin, their need, and Christ's sacrifice once for all. 

The line then seems to transform into a circle where every man's a point; Christ is center.
