1 Cor. 15:52ย  In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

Messianic Prophecies Fulfilled by Jesus – Day 25


It’s a new day and in my brain comes thoughts of Christ’s return to Rapture His Church! Who belongs to His church, you ask? All born-again believers from the time of Jesus’ resurrection to the day of Rapture will be included. I’m not talking about people who claim to be saved but live like the devil. I’m talking about people who actually repented of their old life and have lived for the Lord! (2Corinthians 5:17) I look forward to the Rapture every single day. Why every day? Have you looked around you and thought that the world has literally turned upside down? I look around and see people calling the killing of babies in the womb “good for women”; even up to when they come out of the birth canal ๐Ÿ˜ฅ I see “scientists” actually saying there are more than two sexes and cannot define what is a woman! I see church members fighting amongst themselves over social issues. My heart breaks but I know in my heart that God’s Word is always true and He said this would happen. (2Samuel 7:28, Psalm 119:160, John 17:17 and many more) Therefore, that is why I believe with all my heart that the time is here for the Tribulation to begin. (2Timothy 3:1-7) It cannot begin however, until the Rapture has occurred. This is why I think of the Rapture every single day! ๐Ÿ˜€ These times were prophesied in Isaiah and Jesus spoke of it as well.

Isaiah 5:20  Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

John 3:19  And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

Today’s prophecy of Jesus Christ, our Messiah, is about Him being the Rock. However, to top it off, Samuel also mentions that the Messiah would be the “light.” Do you recall the Scriptures where Jesus taught about building a house on a rock or sand? Jesus said that the person who builds his spiritual life upon a rock, his house would not fall because it was built upon a rock. Because our faith and salvation are based on the Rock, we are solid and safe in Him. You can read more about the Lord being called a rock in: Deuteronomy 32:15, 2Samuel 22:47, 2Samuel 23:3, Psalm 62:7, Psalm 89:26, Psalm 94:22, Psalm 95:1, and Isaiah 17:10. It is no coincidence, friend.

Prophecy of Messiah:

2 Samuel 23:2-4  The Spirit of the LORD spake by me, and his word was in my tongue.  (3)  The God of Israel said, the Rock of Israel spake to me, He that ruleth over men must be just, ruling in the fear of God.  (4)  And he shall be as the light of the morning, when the sun riseth, even a morning without clouds; as the tender grass springing out of the earth by clear shining after rain.

Notice that the God of Israel was spoken to by the Rock of Israel! If you’re Jewish, this verse should cause you to wonder who in the world is speaking to God!

Jesus is the Rock that is prophesied. The Apostle Paul makes it clear below; as plain as the nose on your face. The Rock is Jesus Christ, the Messiah and Saviour of mankind! This same Jesus sheds His light upon our hearts and leads us to Him through His Word.

Prophecy of Messiah Fulfilled:

1 Corinthians 10:4  And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

John 8:12  Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

Don’t walk in darkness, Reader. Please, I beg of you, to make sure that you know Him today. Allow the beautiful light of the Gospel of Christ shine in your hearts; let it shine upon your sins so that you can seek forgiveness, repent (2Corinthians 5:17) and be saved through salvation in Jesus Christ. He will forgive your sins and will lead you to the truth and knowledge in His Word.

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.

Who is the Rock? Day 10

(Deu 32:15)  But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.

Good morning! I’m certain that you are anticipating the new year and what it has in store for us as much as I am! Is this the year of Christ’s return for His church? Will we be raptured in 2022? How wonderful it would be to not experience death but be transformed and taken to Heaven to be with Him for all eternity! Oh reader, if you are not 100% certain that you are saved, please do not wait! Go to the last paragraph of this post and I can show you how to be born again!

Today’s usage of rock is once again capitalized, revealing that it is being used as a proper noun. This is referring to Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour! As I have stated before, there are only seven verses in the entire Bible where the word “Rock” is capitalized. Today’s verse is one of them. It speaks of God’s people, the Jews, were chosen by Him to be a people separated from the rest of the world. God was to provide salvation to the Jews by coming to this world as a Jew and dying for their sins. The Jews called Him the Messiah but they were looking for a conqueror, not a suffering Messiah who would die for their sins. As today’s verse indicates, they “lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.” They forgot who God was – they were “unmindful”! God was not foremost in their lives – this leads me to believe that He was not a part of their everyday lives. So much so that the Bible repeats this just three verses later! Wow!

(Deu 32:18)  Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee.

Seven times in the Scriptures is the word Rock used as a proper noun. To whom is this proper noun referring? It is none other than Jesus Christ, the Jews’ Messiah and our Saviour! I’ve noted in prior posts that seven is the number of completion and perfection. Christ began the work in the Old Testament and His perfect sacrifice was completed in the New Testament! The Rock is referred to only once in the New Testament. How wonderful that this solitary verse in the New Testament reveals who that Rock is! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

(Deu 32:4)  He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.

(Deu 32:15)  But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.

(Deu 32:18)  Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee.

(Deu 32:30)  How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had shut them up?

(Deu 32:31)  For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges.

(2 Sa 23:3)  The God of Israel said, the Rock of Israel spake to me, He that ruleth over men must be just, ruling in the fear of God.

(1 Co 10:4)  And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

Christ was there in the Old Testament and was referred to as the Rock. However, the Jews did not recognize this. Jesus made it plain in the New Testament and revealed Himself. The Apostle Paul used to be a Pharisee and he was well aware of the Scriptures. Paul lets us know who the Rock of the Old Testament is and opens the eyes of the Jews. We Gentiles are blessed to be given this wonderful salvation as well!

I hope you have enjoyed these ten days of covering “Who is the Rock.” It always blesses me when we can see the Lord in different ways; how He portrays Himself in the Word. Praise the Lord, our Rock of salvation!

Can you say the same, reader? Does your hope lie with the world? The world will always bring disappointment. But Jesus never does. The worldโ€™s riches and rewards are only temporary. But Jesusโ€™ rewards are eternal. If you happen to be reading this and are not saved, it is no coincidence. God has placed you here for such a time as this so that you may be saved.
