The Son of Man is Lifted

Jesus said, "When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and I do nothing on My own initiative, but I speak these things as the Father taught Me."

So Moses prayed for the people, and the LORD said to Moses,“Make a saraph and mount it on a pole,and whoever looks at it after being bitten will live.”Moses accordingly made a bronze serpent and mounted it on a pole, and whenever anyone who had been bitten by a serpent looked at the bronze serpent, he lived. Numbers 21:4-9

Moses is a type of Jesus. He leads his people out of the captivity, Christ leads us out of sin. In Christ we can be bitten by all the evils of the world. We can fall time and time again but His Divine Mercy, provides us with a new life. Meditate on just how incredible and awesome that mercy is. Christ glorified is an image to some as a man beaten, tortured, and hung on a cross. An image that looks on surface as defeat. The glory of God can be found in people and at times we see only the image seen by the human eye and not the heart, thus mistaking it for something else.
