Messianic Prophecies Fulfilled by Jesus – Day 29

Prophecy of Messiah:

Psalm 2:7  I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

Good morning! What a wonderful way to start the day! Spending time with the Lord in His Word during the early hours is the best way for me to give all of my focus and attention. It’s this quiet time that I am blessed with a verse or thought that just absolutely makes my day! When is your favorite time? Is it a set schedule or are you the type that enjoys spending various periods of time in the course of your day?

Can you imagine being present when today’s verse was fulfilled? I can only imagine what the disciples thought! If they knew their Old Testament, they would have recognized that the prophecy that David wrote was fulfilled in their own lifetime! How exciting is that!? I see prophecy being fulfilled today about the end times and I stand amazed that these things were written since creation through 90 AD! Anyone reading this blog knows how I enjoy the end-time prophecies and what is happening and about to happen to those who are left during the tribulation on this earth. So I can imagine how those in Jesus’ time felt when they heard and saw this fulfilled! Can’t you?

Prophecy of Messiah Fulfilled:

Matthew 3:17  And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Scripture doesn’t say if everyone heard the voice from Heaven. But in the Gospel of John, it is written that John the Baptist said:

John 1:31-34  And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.  (32)  And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.  (33)  And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.  (34)  And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.

So we read that John the Baptist heard and saw what happened. God made sure that John would recognize the Messiah when He came. John attested to it and even gave a little more information in the following verses:

John 1:29  The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

John 1:35-36  Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples;  (36)  And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!

As if this wasn’t enough, he goes on to say “Behold the Lamb of God!” John the Baptist knew when this prophecy was fulfilled the day of Jesus’ baptism, that he had encountered the Lamb of God who would take away the sins of man. The sacrificial lamb offered by the high priest for the sins of Israel would no longer be sufficient. The new covenant was here: Jesus Christ, our High Priest, would offer Himself as the perfect and spotless Sacrificial Lamb for the remission of all our sins, not just Israel’s! o/ Praise the Lord!

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.
