In the Book of Exodus, Chapter 19, the first blast of a horn was heard from God at Mount Sinai (Exodus 19:16-19). God spoke to the People of Israel and established what is now known as the Mosaic Covenant (Exodus 19:3-6, 7-13). It was through the blast of the horn that God called the attention of the People of Israel.
For many years, I have read through the passage of Jesus at a wedding in Canaan, (John 2:1-11). I saw many elements within it, yet never the simplicity of a tremendous message of things to come through fulfillment of a new covenant and work of Jesus. It was far beyond the scope of my vision for many years.
In a film, "Like a Thief in the Night", a young man is working at a zoo, doing maintenance of a cage box inside a reptile house. As he is working, a snake makes its way out of its cage box, which has been inadvertently left unlocked by someone. The snake comes to a rest near some of the tools and hardware that are being used by the young man. The young man is unaware of the snake's presence or place of rest, so without looking, he reaches out for a tool ... and the snake bites into his hand.
