Post 3 – After the commitment comes the party! The celebration . . . and the gifts! The lamp pictured to the left is a gift YOU can receive… but a bit more about that later.
A few weeks back I’d been invited to celebrate the commitment of Biblical Reproductions, the only company authorized and licensed to sell replicas and photographic reproductions for the Israel Antiquities. My commitment was to provide honest reviews of their website and their products. As a special guest I would receive a surprise – an actual item to review and to keep as a lasting momento of my visit.
Those who know me, know that all things Israel are central to my heart and the decoration of our home. Photos of banners representing the 12 tribes line the surrounding of our kitchen, pointing to the cross and star of David at the ceiling center, so you know I was excited!
When we were young we’d let our kids go through catalogs and dream, and now I’d been dreaming on the quality reproductions at the Biblical Reproductions website. Usually a dream is a maybe, but this was different. I already knew I would be receiving something from the website. I asked God for something that would cause me to give thanks every time I saw it and would echo my word of the year. 2014’s word is “listen.”
YES! That was my reaction on seeing the shape of the package I received from Biblical Reproductions. The narrow and slim package meant it would be a scroll. I tore into my package like a kid and drew out a long clear acrylic-encased beauty. It was a scroll portion from Job – beauty from ashes.
Seeing a portion of Job I immediately brought to mind our grandson David and his battle cry amid his cancer battle that, like Job, he was determined not to sin with his lips (curse God for his suffering) but determined to intercede for those who doubted and wounded him. Job, to many, represents only suffering. What message about my year’s word – listen – could there possibly be in the scroll of Job? The manuscript’s fragments contain the last seven chapters of the translation –
The text contained on the fragments of this reproduction corresponds to Job 23-33, 36:7-16 in the Book of Job fount in the Old Testament.
There are several encouragements to listen and obey God’s Word, and this challenge of Job’s reminds of how I need to listen to, and treasure, God’s Word:
I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my daily bread.
.Amazing that centuries later these words are alive and speak to me.
My beautiful reminder comes with adapters so it can be set on a desk or table or displayed on the wall.
Biblical Reproductions also provided a free gift for you with a purchase from their website! The free items are your choice of pottery – The Herodian Oil Lamp without handle, The Herodian Oil lamp with handle, (illustrated above) and the Mini Dead Sea Scroll Jar.
