The Church’s Rosetta Stone
The Rosetta Stone
This was the Rosetta Stone! The ancient Egyptian stone inscribed in three languages; hieroglyphic, Demotic Egyptian and Koine Greek that the French scholar and Egyptologist, Jane Francois Champollion needed to decipher Egyptian hieroglyphics. He broke the hieroglyphic code by comparing it with the other two languages which were translations of the same text. The discovery of the stone in 1799 made it possible for scholars to translate Egyptian texts and to understand the historical background of Israel’s history. The Rosetta Stone has been key as a translation tool for all languages.
There are 10 redemptive names of God in Psalm 23.
The sad thing, said the Lord, she has left the church and gone elsewhere! The world is full of wisdom and so is much of the church; but there is little godly wisdom. We’ve been taught to fear everything; man, the devil, lack of work and finances, sickness, disease, storms. We have become a fear driven people. We as Christians are only allowed to fear GOD; nothing else!
Since Wisdom had the pitcher on her right shoulder, I believe she was indicating the church moving from having faith in God to having the faith of God. The church is learning how to rest in Him and trust only Him.
