The Love Wait For
Isaac looked up, Rebekak also looked up and saw Isaac
Now Isaac had come from Beer Lahai Roi, for he was living in the Negev. He went out to the field one evening to meditate,[a] and as he looked up, he saw camels approaching.Rebekah also looked up and saw Isaac. She got down from her camel and asked the servant, “Who is that man in the field coming to meet us?” “He is my master,” the servant answered. So she took her veil and covered herself.
(Genesis 24:62-65 NIV)
Who Have The Love Wait For?
Among the women who worship Jehovah is God, Rebekah is mentioned in the Bible, Rebekah ready to please to meet with Isaac. She was the grandson of Abraham's brother, and in her beauty, she was the chief. She is not afraid to talk to strangers, but not too friendly. She asked for Elisha when he asked for water. That is also a sign of ordinary courtesy. After listening to the story of Elisha, Rebecca's brother, Laban and Bethlehem's father, realized that God was leading all things. Certainly, Rebekah was destined for Isaac. They said to Elisha, "Take him, that he may be your wife's son, according to the word of Jehovah." How did Rebekah feel? Ask if she wants to go right away, she replied in a Hebrew word, meaning "I want to go." She was not obliged to accept this proposal. Abraham made clear that Elijah did not take the oath "if the girl did not follow." But Rebekah also saw the hand of God in this matter. So, without delay, she left home to be his wife, whom she had never met. This courageous decision is a manifestation of a particular faith. She is the one they want to choose. (Genesis 24: 29-59) When she met Isaac, Rebekah took the veil with her face, and this was the testimony of obedience. Isaac took her to wife and was sure of her great virtue that Isaac had fallen in love with.
Have you ever waited for a lover? Love wait for is love with eternal value, the love that never fades, the love has nothing to change, a minute of waiting as a thousand words of love. Who has that love is so happy, very satisfied and will live every day with love, hope and faith.
When Abraham and Sarah were very old, God promised that they would have a son and named him Isaac. Isaac is loved by parents. Sarah died when she was one hundred twenty seven years old. At that time, Isaac grew up and he was very sad because his mother died. Abraham did not want Isaac to marry Canaan's wife because they did not worship God. So he sent his servant, who seemed to be Eleazar, to choose a wife for Isaac among the relatives of Abraham who lived in Durban 800 kilometers ago. From that day on, Isaac started having the love wait for, every day he went out looking for his lover.
Rebekah also Looked up and Saw Íaac
The Love Wait For and Get Married
That was not easy for Rebekah to leave family, friends to go to a remote place to meet her lover so before she was not yet met face to face. However, Rebekah was blessed for willingly pleasing the Lord. She became one of the parents of our Savior Jesus Christ.
Upon arrival, it was dark, Rebekah saw a man in the field that is Isaac. Maybe she was nervous waiting for him every minute every second and Rebekah looked up and saw Isaac. From so far Isaac also looked up and saw Rebekah, she and him looking forward to seeing each other in the moment, two hearts vibrate, same beats, same emotions, same direction. There is no beautiful love than the love story of Rebekah and Isaac, a pure love, obedience, and trust in God.
Isaac was out in the field meditating at evening time when the camel caravan approached carrying his precious cargo. Rebekah dismounted from the camel when she saw Isaac and covered herself with a veil as the custom was. After he had heard all the exciting details of the eventful trip and the providential guidance that had found him a bride." Isaac brought her into the tent of his mother Sarah, and he married Rebekah. So she became his wife, and he loved her; and Isaac was comforted after his mother’s death." (Genesis 24:67).
Love waiting now has come true. Love like fresh spring flower petals, like the wind in the east, like flying leaves in the fall, like wind and clouds, love makes Isaac daydream, miss, wait, love touches his heart and Isaac was married with Rebekah.
As The Love Wait For That Is Who Have Longed Waiting for Jesus Appearing
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.
(2 Timothy 4:7-8 NIV )
A Wedding Party Is Also Available for Those Who Are Waiting For Him
The Love Never Fails
The church on this earth is "the bride" with Christ, and, like the wise virgins in the sermon, all believers should love and give the groom. When Christ appeals to His bride and takes the bride to the house of the Lord and the wedding takes place thereafter and also the last step, the Lamb wedding takes place in heaven. Participants will not only be the Church of the Bride of Christ but also of others. "Other" includes saints in the Old Testament. "Blessed are those who are invited to marry the Lamb" (Revelation19: 9). The Lamb's wedding feast is a glorious celebration of all those who is in Christ.
Jesus are waiting for coming back again, are you also love Him and looked up and waiting Him? That is a love ever fails, it is eternal love between us and God. I was far away from my lover, and had been waiting for three years, I understand the person in love, waiting for the lover who must be honest, faithful, refusing temptations, greed.
Paul says, "I have kept the faith.Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing." The groom is Jesus waiting for Paul, He is also waiting for each of us as the love wait for because we are who have longed waiting for Jesus appearing.
The love story of Rebekah and Isaac compared with our love with Jesus because we love Him more than anything, what does gold or diamond mean? what is the other world? We will love you wholeheartedly, never be separated from Him, never leave him.God's love bigger than heaven, the mercy of God is deeper than the sea or the lake so never lose Him also never be separated from Him.
In the time we waiting for Him, we must remember that Jesus was crucified on the cross because our sin. We must bring love to the helpless, lost in the dark world return to Him. Romans 8:38-39 says, "For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." The love never fails.
