Extracts from an article published in the 2019-2020 Haddington House Journal by Dr. Manfred W. Kohl about the road to Emmaus encounter.
…. The Lord went with the two travelers, guiding them into all truth. He presented a comprehensive view of all Messianic prophesies and their fulfillment. Jesus thus declared that he was the heart of the Old Testament Scripture.
… he was the substance of every Old Testament sacrifice ordained in the Messianic law…
… he was the true deliverer and king…
… he was the coming prophet, the true high priest… … he was, and he is, the key to all of Scripture….

Reflection and Application
Jesus demonstrates that he is closer to his people than they will ever know; he has time to listen…
Jesus demonstrates that he is able to fill us with his presence if we are empty vessels…
Jesus demonstrates that he himself is the key to all Scripture; when he speaks our hearts are on fire…
Jesus demonstrates that he is the first, the last, the living one; there is none like him…
Jesus demonstrates that prayer/blessing and breaking/sharing are inseparable – biblical stewardship…
Jesus demonstrates that to know him means to serve him faithfully and with integrity…
Jesus demonstrates that life with him is everything, and he invites you and me to participate…
And it all began with a simple dialogical prayer.
Soli Deo Gloria.

At the Beginning of the Illness
Help, Lord God, help
In this trouble!
I think Death is at the door.
Stand before me, Christ;
For Thou hast overcome him!
To Thee I cry:
If it is Thy will,
Take out the dart,
Which wounds me
Nor lets me have an hour’s
Rest or repose!
Will’st Thou however
That Death take me
In the midst of my days,
So let it be!
Do what Thou wilt;
Me nothing lacks.
Thy vessel am I;
To make or break altogether.
For, if Thou takest away
From this earth,
Thou dost it, that it may not grow worse,
The pious lives and ways of others.
In the Midst of the Illness
Console me, Lord God, console me!
The illness increases,
Pain and fear seize
My soul and body.
Come to me then,
With Thy grace, O my only consolation!
It will surely save
His heart’s desire
And hopes sets
On Thee, and who besides
Despises all gain and loss.
Now all is up.
My tongue is dumb,
It cannot speak a word.
My sense are all blighted.
Therefore it is time
That Thou my fight
Since I am not
So strong, that I
To the Devil’s wiles and treacherous hand.
Still will my spirit
Constantly abide by Thee, however he rages.
At the End of the Sickness
Sound, Lord God, sound!
I think I am
Already coming back.
Yes, if it please Thee,
That no spark of sin
Rule me longer on earth.
Then my lips must
Thy praise and teaching
Than ever before,
However it may go,
In simplicity and with no danger.
Although I must
The punishment of death
Perhaps with greater anguish
Then would now have
Since I came
So will I still
The spite and boasting
Of this world
Bear joyfully for the sake of the reward
By Thy help,
Without which nothing can be perfect.
