Well said, thank you! The Old Testament was penned much earlier than the New Testament and yet without understanding the the revelations chronicled were perfectly supporting the birth, life and death of the Messiah and beyond. Many recognized and followed the Messiah because of the support from the Tanakh but so very few, if any, did from those officially charged with protecting and disseminating interpretation of the Tanakh. We are all primarily responsible to our decision and indecision. I agree, “The last person, and the decisive person, to hear from God is you.” Without that living reciprocal child and parent relationship life just becomes a bunch of otherwise disorganized children choosing up sides to compete with an outcome determined only by the decisions and interpretations of the two most competitive and intimidating children on that field of play.
