Wish I would’ve seen this quote before my sermon yesterday …

Referring to the bread from heaven and water from the desert rock God provided the ancient Israelites in the wilderness, E.J. Waggoner wrote:

“They showed that Christ dwells in the heart by faith just as really as the emblems are received into the body; and that just as really as those emblems are assimilated, and become flesh, so really does Christ, the Word, become flesh in all those who receive Him by faith. ¬†Christ is formed within by the power of the Spirit.”

– from “The Everlasting Covenant: God’s Promise to Abraham and the World”, Chapter 26, under the subheading The Real Presence.¬† Emphasis supplied.
