‘Here am I, and the children the Lord has given me. We are signs and symbols in Israel from the Lord Almighty, who dwells on Mount Zion’ (Is 8: 18).
The word ‘sign’ means something that advertises a place, a business; it is also a warning to them that walk along the way. For example, if you ignore the ‘traffic signs’ you are in danger of having an accident. .
A sign can also be a gesture from a commander or a coach to his team, telling them to obey his commands. By ignoring the sign of the coach, the team will lose the game. It is also a sign language for them that are deaf.
Generally speaking, a sign is something visible that stands for something invisible or hidden. God uses godly, fruitful families as signs and symbols, pointing others to Christ who is the invisible Source of all their blessings.
Do not ignore the Word of God!
Do not ignore godly families or fruitful believers! Follow them as they follow Christ! In This way, it shall be well with you!
In Christ I declare:
I am a child of God!
I am a fruitful vine!
I and the children the Lord has given to me, we are signs and symbols pointing to Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord!
We lift Jesus higher!
To the glory of God the Father!
In Jesus name
