The Hidden Scarlet Thread: Christ is Woven Through Every Bible Book


 Article by David M. Augenstein, MSc, PE (ret) unless otherwise noted. Liked

There is a scarlet thread that is woven into a tapestry throughout every book of the Bible. This scarlet thread is prophecy referring to Jesus Christ. There is a free eBook by the noted Dr. W.A. Criswell on this very subject and I will give you the link at the bottom. We have an Oral Roberts 1950s tent revival message that is electrifying. These “scarlet threads” are a foreshadow, type or metaphor– a representation, or is a direct reference; some call it a trail of blood. From Genesis to Revelation, the great subject of the Word is Jesus Christ–either as the coming Messiah, the present Jesus or as the resurrected and returning Messiah.

God, in all His wisdom, gave His Word with supernatural features, such as the scarlet thread. It is a secret key buried in the Word about Jesus Christ, who unlocks the spiritual doors so our eyes can finally see.

the hand of a newborn who would be in the Christ bloodline. Further, scarlet threads and other colors were used in the OT to clothe priests and royalty. This is why bible ribbons and cords with tassels are commonly red or scarlet.

I was able to find a youtube with the exciting original sermon given at a tent revival in the 1950s by evangelist Oral Roberts. (He traveled around the country and hosted large tent meetings and gathered churches to support the events. He was known for his electrifying healing ministry, and many were healed and lives were changed. These events attracted around 10,000 at one time. ( I remember these when I was a kid since he was on television, back when TVs were only two colors, black and white; and it took time for the TV set to warm up.) 

I have cued up to the part of this sermon (10-min.) on what he calls Who Is That Fourth Man?; the fourth man in the burning fiery furnace with the three others in the book of Daniel. He calls the fourth man Jesus Christ. However, this fourth man was an angel sent, but the angel (in the form of a man) represents Christ as our savior, like the other examples given. (Jesus Christ never actually appeared until he was born.) For this reason, I changed the title to Who Is This Jesus Christ? Two other doctrinal errors emerge toward the end: he refers to Jesus Christ as God Himself and mentions everlasting fire in hell for all who do not believe (big errors). All the main script is also given below. This was copied from ENJOY!
