Mary had a little lamb.It's fleece as white as snow. Everywhere that Mary went the lamb was sure to go. It followed her to school one day which was against the rule......
We all learned this nursery rhyme back in grade school or even before.
I see the lamb being Yeshua(Jesus) our Lamb. Mary is Yeshua's Mother Mary.
Everywhere that Mary went the lamb was sure to go. Those of us who believe in the Lamb know everywhere we go Yeshua goes with us. My mom a Jewish woman who did not want to hear about Yeshua would tell me.. "son you are welcome here anytime..but please leave Jesus home..don't bring him in my house". I would explain that Yeshua and his Holy Spirit inside me and where I go the Lamb is sure to go.
The most interesting line in the rhyme is the lamb followed her to school one day which was against the rule.
The rhyme was published for the first time in 1834. In 2017 there are laws forbidding the Lamb in school. Schools could expel students for praying to the Lamb...holding bible studies..or turning in papers about the Lamb...reading the Bible.
I have been listening to the Down Home Shalom shows from 8 years ago. I find it very interesting and disturbing that news about Israel back in 2008 are the same news stories today all these years later. Bombings...land for peace...etc..Same with the nursery rhyme.. the lamb was not allowed in the schools then and the Lamb is not allowed in schools today.
I am very sadden.
