Messianic Prophecies Fulfilled by Jesus – Day 14

Prophecy of Messiah:

Lev 16:15-17  Then shall he kill the goat of the sin offering, that is for the people, and bring his blood within the vail, and do with that blood as he did with the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it upon the mercy seat, and before the mercy seat:  (16)  And he shall make an atonement for the holy place, because of the uncleanness of the children of Israel, and because of their transgressions in all their sins: and so shall he do for the tabernacle of the congregation, that remaineth among them in the midst of their uncleanness.  (17)  And there shall be no man in the tabernacle of the congregation when he goeth in to make an atonement in the holy place, until he come out, and have made an atonement for himself, and for his household, and for all the congregation of Israel.

Good morning, Reader! Have the prophetic verses for Messiah fulfilled through Christ blessed you? They serve to enforce my faith and encourage me that there IS no other God but our God! Amen and amen! When one reads these prophecies and how Christ fulfilled all those about His first coming, how much more should we believe that He will fulfill all those about His Second Coming? Israel will see their Messiah for the first time and He will reveal to them how they missed Him that first time.

I love today’s Scriptures because the Apostle Paul made it perfectly clear that Jesus fulfilled this sacrifice, once for all sins. There is no need for any other sacrifice to be made for any sin because He paid the price for every sin for every human being if they accept His perfect redemption! Friend, if you are a Roman Catholic, you go to church and the priest offers Jesus up on the cross over and over. This is no different that the High Priest in the Jewish faith offering a yearly sacrifice. But Jesus died ONCE for ALL sins. There is no other need for His sacrifice to be offered over and over.

Prophecy of Messiah Fulfilled:

Heb 7:21-28  (For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by him that said unto him, The Lord sware and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec:)  (22)  By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament.  (23)  And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death:  (24)  But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.  (25)  Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.  (26)  For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;  (27)  Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.  (28)  For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.

Heb 9:7-14  But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people:  (8)  The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing:  (9)  Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience;  (10)  Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation.  (11)  But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;  (12)  Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.  (13)  For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh:  (14)  How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

Heb 10:10-12  By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.  (11)  And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:  (12)  But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;

Wow … just wow! Jesus entered in the Holy Place in Heaven, which in the Old Testament was represented by the High Priest entering the Holy of Holies. Jesus’ sinless life (the spotless lamb) concluded with His death and the perfect sacrifice. The Old Testament spotless lamb’s blood could only “cover” the sins for that particular person or family each year. While Jesus’ blood eliminates and forgives (not covers, but eliminates) all the sins for all men and it’s as if man had never sinned.

What a beautiful picture! Our High Priest is the Perfect Sacrifice and none other can even come close! Do you know Him personally or do you only know of Him? I want to be sure that anyone who reads the posts on this blog can know beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are going to Heaven. Have you received Christ as your Saviour? If no, your sins are not covered by His sacrificial offering of Himself. You have not been redeemed by His blood. It is no coincidence that God has placed you here for such a time as this so that you may be saved if you are not already.
