Abraham takes Isaac to the very land where, many years prior, Abraham had met the king-priest Melchizedek (see Gen. 14). Isaac asks his father, “Where is the lamb?”
Abraham reveals that God will “provide himself a lamb.”
However, a ram and not a lamb replaces Isaac. When the ram appears, Abraham calls the name of the place
Jehovah-Jireh, meaning “the Lord will see to it.”
Moses writes, “In the mount of the Lord it shall be seen” (Gen. 22:14). What will be seen in the mount of the Lord? I believe that, by revelation of the Holy Spirit, Abraham saw something that is not actually recorded in the story. He knows a lamb would one day appear on the mountain to bring redemption. That lamb is Christ. This is what Christ spoke of when He said, “Abraham rejoiced to see my day; and he saw it” (John 8:56).
