Where does the Old Testament predict the coming of Jesus Christ? Welcome, my friends. Think not that the Almighty only used the 'psalmists' to declare His working. Now, after the 'resurrection', still let us pause to reflect upon more 'fulfilled' prophecies about Jesus' First Coming to save 'whosoever believes in Him', from sin.
The 'predictions' of the 'Coming Anointed King of Israel' was not just in the Psalms. Oh, my no!
There are many Old Testament prophecies about Jesus Christ. The following are some of the clearest and most important ones I have found. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Continuing from March 29, 2018. As I was working on this post, I felt such a 'special' 'unction' to say and do this as follows. Thank you for your interest in 'studying' God's Word with me. We will slow it down, so that you will have the 'skills' you need to 'study' the Bible, even if there is no human person to guide you in the future. You must be able to do this, for at any time, such as this website could be - banned, or, in some areas - blocked. Why, this may be 'considered' 'hate speech' now in some places. I know that you see how 'Christianity' is being 'driven under-ground'. But, you must still be able and prepared to 'hear' the 'Good Shepherd's Voice' for yourselves. And, the Holy Spirit cannot be 'silenced'. He is your and my, Teacher. So, let us slow down. [Luke 12:12; John 10:4,14; 18:37]
So then, do you 'own' a version in paper of the Holy Scriptures - both, the Old and the New Testament? Let me encourage you to purchase one at your very earliest convenience. The internet is fine, as long as it works.
Now, continuing with respect to Jesus' ministry and death, followed with a 'lesson', it is written:
Zechariah 9:9: “Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.”
This was accomplished in part, on what we now call - 'Palm Sunday', 'The Triumphal Entrance into Jerusalem, that we just celebrated this year, March 25, 2018.
[Zechariah 2:10; Jeremiah 23:5,6; Matthew 21:5; Mark 11:7,9; Luke 19:35-38; John 12:13-15]
From Psalm 22:16-18, it is written, Fulfiled Matthew 27:35; Luke 23:27, 35: “Dogs have surrounded me; a band of evil men has encircled me, they have pierced my hands and my feet. I can count all my bones; people stare and gloat over me. They divide my garments among them and cast lots for my clothing.”
It is most likely that the clearest prophecy about Jesus is the entire 53rd chapter of Isaiah. It is one of the 'songs' of the 'Suffering Servant to Come'. [See also Isaiah 42:1-13; 49:1-13; Isaiah 52:13-15; Isaiah 53:1-12]
In Isaiah 53:3-7, the reference is especially unmistakable: “He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering. Like one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth.”
NOW, A LESSON ON 'BIBLE INTERPRETATION'. Using Isaiah 53:3-7, to see the fulfillment, we cross reference from the Bible, such as John 12:38, interpreting Isaiah 53:1. Then, Hebrews 4:15, interprets Isaiah 53:2. I will let you continue with the remainder. For example, see John 1:10-11 and Hebrews 1:2 for Isaiah 53:3, and so forth. Matthew 8:17[53:4]; Romans 4:25; 1 Peter 2:24,25[53:5]; Matthew 26:63; 27:12-14; Acts 8:32, 33[53:7]; Daniel 9:26;Luke 23:1-25[53:8]; Matthew 27:57-60; 1 Peter 2:22[53:9]; 2 Corinthians 5:21[53:10]; Isaiah 42:1; Romans 5:15-19;1 John 2:1[53:11]; Psalm 2:8; Isaiah 50:6; Mathew 27:38; Luke 23:34; Colossians 2:15 [53:13].
SPECIAL NOTE, MY FRIENDS. When 'interpreting the Bible', when 'studying the Bible', let the Bible interpret itself. Each time you are in His Word, you are 'in His Presence'. These 'appointments' should not be 'rushed'. God will not contend for your time. Above, I have noted scriptural references in understanding when the Word of the Lord has been recorded, having come to pass. ALWAYS LOOK FOR SUCH REFERENCES AND - CHECK THEM OUT FOR YOURSELVES. YOU WILL NEVER BE DECEIVED WHEN YOU DO THIS. YOU WILL UNDERSTAND - 'TRUTH' FROM THE SCRIPTURES, for your very own circumstances. You will begin to 'hear His Voice through the Holy Spirit and His Word, for yourself.' This is 'spiritually discerning'. [2 Corinthians 2:6-16] This will help you to have a 'personal relationship' with the Lord, based on Love for Him, which will defy any other relationships on the earth. [2 Corinthians 6:14] For real. AND NOTICE, IT IS SCRIPTURE 'CONFIRMING' SCRIPTURE, NO MATTER WHAT A PERSON MAY THINK. YOU WILL NEVER, EVER - BE DIRECTED TO DO ANYTHING IN CONFLICT WITH THE CHARACTER OF THE LIVING GOD, REVEALED IN THE 'LIVING' WORD OF GOD! NEVER. [No, God does not make a person do evil, wicked things!!!] THIS IS WHAT IS MEANT BY 'GETTING THE FULL COUNSEL OF THE WORD OF GOD'. [Isaiah 9:6; 11:2; 28:29; Acts 20:27] This is 'living faith in the faith of Jesus'. [John 7:17; Acts 22:14; Romans 10:17; Ephesians 1:11; Philippians 2:13; 1 Thessalonians 4:3;; Hebrews 10:36; 1 John 2:17] This is the 'relationship' Jesus had with His God and Father. This is the relationship God wants to have with all who have come to Him, through faith in Jesus Christ. It gets no better in this life. Amen. Amen.
