HIS BLOOD BEARS A TESTIMONY BANNER
FRAGRANT PRAISE
CHAPTER 3

 

As he is calling us unto himself, he has given us an invitation. He has thrown out his scarlet-soaked "rope of hope", extending it out to us, in our time of distress or need. He is our door of hope! He comes to us in our valley of despair! The valley there is a low place, a place of difficulty and trial, a place of affliction. The Hebrew word translated as "hope" is Tikvah, which in its root meaning pictures a cord attached to the thing longed for.

God throws "us" a lifeline.

Therefore I am now going to allure her; I will lead her into the wilderness and speak tenderly to her. There I will give her back her vineyards and will make the Valley of Achor a door of hope. There she will respond as in the days of her youth, as in the day she came up out of Egypt.

Hosea 2:14-15

Then in the verse Joshua 2, "Then she let them down by a rope through the window, for her house..." She has more fear of God than she had of the fear of man. First God comes into us, then we are invited by his blood, to grab a hold of His rope of hope or His blood-soaked carpet (invitation!!).

He makes roads in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.

Because I am doing something new! Now you will grow like a new plant. Surely you know this is true. I will even make a road in the desert, and rivers will flow through that dry land.

Isaiah 43:19
