By Bible Names of God

      Gene 22:10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.

      How significant is the second title of our Lord, and how significant is the incident which introduces it! In answer to God's Command, Abraham had taken Isaac to Mount Moriah there to offer him as a sacrifice. But the "Angel of Jehovah" (the Son of God) appeared with the life-saving message, "Lay not thine hand upon the lad," -- and this is the very Mount upon which afterwards He Himself was Crucified as our Sin-offering!

      Oh, Thou Angel of Jehovah, how we rejoice in Thy message to Abraham which we love to apply to ourselves, "In blessing, I will bless thee." Amen.
