Fifth Day of Christmas: The Rings of Truth

Fifth Day of Cristmas

NO not the Olympics. These Five Golden Rings are very significant or they would not have the emphasis in the song that they do. It is not the center but these rings speak the truth and the start of the whole Bible. I am talking of the first five books, the Pentateuch. These are the Five Scrolls of Moses. Genesis provides us with the Creation Story, the Fall, the Flood, the Patriarchs, Joseph and the move to Egypt. That is just the beginning.

The other books tell of the shaping of the Israelite nation and the relationship they had with God. Out of these come The Ten Commandments and the Law of Moses, the Exodus from Egypt, and the lessons learned along the journey into the Promised Land of which Moses never steps foot in. The laws and statutes that govern moral behavior, feasts, sacrifices for sins, and other rituals are found in Leviticus and Deuteronomy. Numbers is just that, probably the largest census ever on record that we still have today.

We are out of the Festivals and are focused on learning of Jesus and the New Testament Instruction. Yes I know it is a short time but so was the time that Jesus had to spread the Word. His ministry began after He was Baptized and spent the 40 days in the desert and lasted for three years.

What do we do now? We continue in His Commission to us, spreading the Word of God to all nations.
