THEME: JESUS' FULFILMENT OF THE SCRIPTURE
WHAT THE PROPHETS FORETOLD
JUNE 21, 2014
THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Our salvation in Jesus was prophesied.
Holy God, we are amazed at Your plan for our salvation through Jesus, a plan prophesied hundreds of years in advance. We humble ourselves in the presence of Jesus, the prophesied One.
We pray this in the name of Your Holy Son, Jesus, Amen.
KEEP IN MIND
Memory Verse: "AND BEGINNING AT MOSES AND ALL THE PHOPHETS, HE EXPOUNDED UNTO THEM IN ALL THE SCRIPTURES THE THINGS CONCERNING HIMSELF"
God inspired the prophet Isaiah to foretell that Jesus the Messiah would first come into the world as a Suffering Servant Messiah. No one would believe that Jesus came as a Suffering Servant until after Jesus had suffered crucifixion and death, and then rose from the dead to explain once again what He had taught His disciples. The Apostles would not believe the report of the women who came from Jesus’ tomb with the angelic message that Jesus had risen from the dead as He had told them when they were in Galilee.
The arm (which means “the power”) of God the Father and the power of Jesus was revealed to the Apostles when Jesus appeared to the Apostles at various times in His resurrected glory. Today, Isaiah could ask the same questions of believers and unbelievers.
POINT TO CONSIDER
1. The Love. Our Father sent His Son as a servant to die on the cross for our sins. (See Isaiah 53:5-6)
2. The Humility. A servant is not permitted to talk back; he or she must submit to the will of the master or mistress. Jesus Christ was silent before those who accused Him as well as those who afflicted him. He was silent before Caiaphas (Matt. 26:62-63), the chief priests and elders (27:12), Pilate (27:14; John 19:9) and Herod Antipas (Luke 23:9). He did not speak when the soldiers mocked Him and beat Him (1 Peter 2:21-23). (See Isaiah 53:7-8)
3. The Grace. Even after it was “finished” (John 19:30) Jesus took the time to explain the Scriptures concerning Himself, bringing enlightenment to the most stubborn preconceived ideas! (See Luke 24:25-27, 44-46)
4. The Call. Jesus concluded by reminding the disciples that they were witnesses of all these things. These witnesses include those who have testified to the reality of the Gospel, and their witness encourages us to testify today. (See Luke 44:47, 48)
We know from the Bible that justice was perverted at Jesus’ trial, because false witnesses were called and Pilate declared there was no case against Jesus. When Jesus died, He “was cut off from the land of the living.” Jesus died for a good reason; He died for the transgressions of God’s people. Isaiah prophesied exactly the suffering and death of Jesus and why Jesus came and died.
From prophecy and the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, we have many good reasons to believe that Jesus came into the world as the Messiah and He is the Son of God, Who reigns at the right hand of God.
God restored us to Him through His grace and mercy in the atoning death of His Son—all planned and revealed ahead of time through God's messengers, the prophets.
Today, we have the Holy Spirit to help us better understand and apply the Scriptures. AMEN....HALLELUJAH! AMEN!

Dear Heavenly and Eternal Father,
