106 Prophecies of the Lamb of God

Prophecies of Messiah

The Bible is the Logos [the Word, Jesus Christ] in print.  Every part of it is an analogy of Jesus Christ, the coming bride and instructions concerning the relationship that Christ wants with his bride; as well as the work of Christ on behalf of his creation.  The negative examples are to teach us what to avoid; and the positive things are examples of Christ and a holy people will behave themselves.

In the eons of time before the physical universe, two members of the God [Elohim (Mighty Ones)] Family produced a plan for bringing many children into the God Family.  Since the Bible is filled with physical things and events as analogies of the spiritual; allow me to use a physical example to illustrate what happened.

Today an architect designs a building or product; laying out the plans and blueprints, and making up specifications and instructions.  The great architect of the universe is the one who we now call the Father!  This Being drew up his plans with the input of the Other who became the son; and  at the point when both had approved of the plan, the one who we call the Father gave the plan over to the son for implementation.

The Father is the Master Architect of the universe!  The one who became the son, Jesus Christ; is the Master Builder and Creator, who carries out the plans of the Father.

Now consider that we may say that Ford built his car, but we know that Ford only designed and organized its production, it was the workers and machinery who actually built the Ford!  Each machine had to be built to do its part before the work on a Ford could begin.

The Master Builder, Jesus Christ first created angelic helpers, then he organized them; and they all worked together, according to their instructions of the Master Builder [based on the Master Architect’s blueprints] and created the universe.

When Lucifer rebelled, taking a third of the angels with him, he was renamed the Adversary [Satan] by the God family.  And at that time it was decided to allow man to experience BOTH ways so that mankind would learn through bitter experience how utterly painful and foul Satan’s ways were.  By experiencing evil and KNOWING the fullness of evil; when man was opened to the GOOD of God’s ways and all the teachings and commandments of Christ:  No one would ever want to go Satan’s way again, ever!

To emphasize how vile Satan’s ways were; it was decided from the very beginning that the Creator would die for his creation to atone for their sins.

Revelation 13:8   . . . . in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

At the appointed time in the plan:

1 Corinthians 5:7   Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: 

Thus the whole plan  of the Spring Appointed Times and Holy Days revolves around teaching us about the plan of salvation for humanity; including the calling out of a kind of first fruits to become workers in the main harvest of Tabernacles.

The first prophecy of Messiah was given to Adam and Eve, after they had rebelled against their Creator.   The bruising of the head speaking of damage to a vital part, while the bruising of a heel speaking of a minor damage that would be recovered from.

Speaking of Satan, the Creator tells Satan:

Genesis 3:15   And I will put enmity between thee [Satan] and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed [Messiah]; it shall bruise thy head [break the head and destroy Satan], and thou shalt bruise his heel [Satan shall manage to crucify Christ; who will then be resurrected by the Father].

Moses Prophesies of Messiah

Deuteronomy 18:15 The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;

Now this Moses was the mediator of the Mosaic Covenant, and here Moses speaks of another prophet to come like himself.  Clearly meaning that another Mediator of another Covenant would come to them.

This new Mediator would mediate a New Covenant with the people of Israel, and ultimately all nations would be grafted into that New Covenant; grafted into an Israel; who will be totally of like mind with Christ and the Father.

Jeremiah  31:31   Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:  31:32  Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the Lord;

31:33  But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.  31:34  And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the Lord: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

These things were expounded by Peter:

Acts  3:17 And now, brethren, I wot that through ignorance ye did it, as did also your rulers.

3:18 But those things, which God before had shewed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he hath so fulfilled.

3:19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.

3:20 And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: 3:21 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.

3:22 For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.

3:23 And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.

3:24 Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days.

The Lesson of Korah is a Lesson About the Covenant Mediator

Over and over again the rebellion of Korah has been twisted to mean exactly the opposite of what it really means; to enforce the sin of spiritual idolatry to men and organizations.

The true lesson of Korah is that we are not to follow those who rebel against the Father and his only Mediator Jesus Christ.

The modern Korah’s are those elders who stand on their own ways and traditions in rebellion against our ONLY High Priest and Mediator Jesus Christ.

The true faithful are those who reject those who are not faithful to the Father and Jesus Christ, our ONLY Mediator and true High Priest!

Exodus 20:18 And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off. 20:19 And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die.

Moses and the priesthood of the Levites were placed BETWEEN the people and God; Moses becoming the mediator of the Mosaic Covenant. Now, all these things were done by God and written for our instruction and example.  The Mosaic Covenant being a precursor of a New Covenant,  Jer 31; and Moses being a type of Jesus Christ who was to become the mediator of the New Covenant,

Hebrews 9:14 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? 9:15 And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.

In the New Covenant there is NO mediator between the people and God except Jesus Christ:

1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; 2:6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.

This Jesus Christ became our Mediator on the Wave Offering Sunday when he rose to the Father to be accepted for us. [Wave Offering study coming] .  And what was he offering to be accepted for us?  A perfect sacrifice, transcending all other sacrifices: the perfect Lamb of God sacrificed for the sins of the world:

Hebrews 8:3 For every high priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it is of necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer.

Yes, he offered up himself as the perfect Lamb of God for the sins of humanity, thereby becoming our Mediator upon the acceptance of that sacrifice.

Moses was a type of Christ, being the mediator of the Old Covenant; as Christ is the Mediator of the New Covenant.  In his office as mediator, Moses was without sin; except for one slip to demonstrate to us the need for a new and better Covenant that would transcend the merely physical and truly forgive sin.

For this Moses was NOT allowed to enter the promised land as a demonstration for us, that any person who commits even the least sin will NOT be allowed entry into that spiritual promised land of eternal life.  If Jesus Christ did NOT allow Moses into the promised land for striking a rock; how is it that anyone else expects to break the Sabbath and commandments at will and that our “Judge” will just wink and let us in?

Brethren, the Sabbath is a test and a matter of life and death, no it is not a light thing or a straining at gnats. It is a test to see how willing we are to please God. It is a test to see if we do consider obedience to God as a light thing, and if we do take the Sabbath lightly. The Sabbath commandment shows our attitude toward the whole law, and toward the author of that law, and toward the Mediator of our potential salvation.

Matthew 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. [KEPT by all people] 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven [he will not even be in the resurrection if he does not repent]: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Yet, This Jesus Christ had NO sin and therefore could be resurrected to spirit, being able to cross the gulf between heaven and earth  [which no flesh can cross] and enter into the presence of the Most High in his Holy Temple in heaven.

Now, Jesus Christ has become the Mediator of a New Covenant; his sacrifice being perfect, he need not be killed again and again as sin is committed again and again by men.  No, he needed to die just once and that perfect sacrifice could then be applied and if necessary be re-applied to atone for the repented sins of men.  He is our Mediator because he intercedes for us with the Father when we repent and turn from our law breaking.

The mediation of Christ is much more effective then the mediation of the mortal and sinful Moses interceding between the people and God. When we enter the Heavenly Holy Place with that perfect sacrifice; we ARE fulfilling the Law of Sacrifice and keeping the Sacrificial System.

When we understand these types, then we can understand that the rebellion of Korah against the mediator of the Mosaic Covenant; was in type, a rebellion against the Mediator of the new Covenant; Jesus Christ!

As it is written: under the New Covenant we are to prove all things and hold fast ONLY that which is good; if provable by God’s Word, 1 Thes 5.   We are NOT to use the rebellion of Korah to justify loyalty to men or organizations that are not being faithful to God!

The lesson of Korah is the exact opposite: We are NOT to rebel against our Mediator, Jesus Christ; by following any man astray from Christ!  I wonder if the first pope used the lesson of Korah to condemn those who would not accept his heresies?  The lesson of Korah is loyalty to our Mediator, Jesus Christ; and loyalty to any organization is NEVER to be considered as synonymous with loyalty to Christ.

Neither the pope, nor Mary,  nor any other person is our mediator.  Our ONLY Mediator is Jesus Christ!  We owe all our loyalty directly to CHRIST!

FOLLOW MEN ONLY AS THEY FOLLOW GOD THE FATHER AND HIS SON!

Do not be misled into believing that loyalty to any man or organization is the same as loyalty to Christ.

That would be; rebelling in the footsteps of Korah!

I have no problem with anyone resigning or leaving any corporate religious organization.  I do have a problem with men exalting such organizations to the level of little gods in the eyes of people.  I am 100% for all religious organizations who focus the brethren on passionate ZEAL for the Father and his Christ.  I warn all people in such organizations to follow them ONLY as they are loyal to the Father and Christ.

The lesson of Korah is to be faithful and loyal to the Mediator of our Covenant: JESUS CHRIST! 

The lesson of Korah has absolutely NOTHING to do with loyalty to any religious organization or man! The words Messiah and Christ mean “the anointed one”.

Psalm 2

2:1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

“Anointed” – in Hebrew mashiah, “anointed”; in Greek christos, whence English Messiah and Christ.

2:2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,

The wicked desire to rebel against God and cast off the bands and cords of restraint on wickedness provided by the LAW of GOD.

God shall hold the rebels in high derision for they are like naughty children who know nothing and yet think that they know all things, not realizing that they are making fools of themselves in their rebellion against the Mighty One of Jacob.

The day of the Lord shall come upon them and Christ with his faithful shall stand a King on Zion.

2:3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

2:4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision.

2:5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

2:6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.

Hebrews 1:5   For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?  1:6 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.

An inset to the begettal and birth of Christ.

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

The Father will place his begotten Son as King of kings over all the earth.

2:8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.

2:9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron  [the wicked and rebellious against the teachings of Christ, including those faithless in the church of God]; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.

Acts 13:32 And we declare unto you glad tidings, how that the promise which was made unto the fathers, 13:33 God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.

13:34 And as concerning that he raised him up from the dead, now no more to return to corruption, he said on this wise, I will give you the sure mercies of David.

13:35 Wherefore he saith also in another psalm, Thou shalt not suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

13:36 For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell on sleep, and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption: 13:37 But he, whom God raised again, saw no corruption.

Faithless compromisers with the commandments of God should repent quickly, and seek the wisdom or our God.

Psalms  2:10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.

Submit to Christ when he comes to rule.  Embrace the teachings and ways of the Son of God who faithfully obeyed his Father in ALL things.

2:11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

2:12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

Psalm 16 Is a prophetic prayer of the attitude of Christ.

Peter preached this Psalm in Acts:

Acts 2:22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know: 2:23 Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain: 2:24 Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.

2:25 For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved: 2:26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope: 2:27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

2:28 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.

2:29 Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.

2:30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne; 2:31 He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.

2:32 This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.

2:33 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.

2:34 For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, 2:35 Until I make thy foes thy footstool.

Paul also preaches this psalm at Antioch:

Acts 13:32 And we declare unto you glad tidings, how that the promise which was made unto the fathers, 13:33 God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.

13:34 And as concerning that he raised him up from the dead, now no more to return to corruption, he said on this wise, I will give you the sure mercies of David.

13:35 Wherefore he saith also in another psalm, Thou shalt not suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

13:36 For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell on sleep, and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption: 13:37 But he, whom God raised again, saw no corruption.

13:38 Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins: 13:39 And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.

Psalm 16

Psalm 16:1 Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.

The goodness of the saints cannot be compared to the goodness of God.

16:2 O my soul, thou hast said unto the Lord, Thou art my Lord: my [own] goodness extendeth [does not reach to God] not to thee; 3 But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.

Seeking out knowledge of false gods and the teachings of the unconverted is an abomination to the Great God, and is spiritual adultery against the espoused Husband of our calling.  All those who do this shall be confounded and made ashamed.

16:4  Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood [false teachings bring death] will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips.

Let the children of God stay upon God their Father in heaven and on our espoused Husband, and not follow idols of men.

16:5  The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou [God] maintainest my lot [God gives the lot of eternal life and many blessings to his faithful].

16:6 The lines [borders] are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.7 I will bless the Lord, who hath given me counsel: my reins [kidneys, symbolic of sensitivity to God] also instruct me in the night seasons [as we think on the things of God in the night]. 

A prophecy of Christ who will never be moved from living by every Word of God, and will therefore be exalted by God the Father back to the glory he had before the foundation of the world.

John 17:5  And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

Psalm 16:8 I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. 16:9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. 16:10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. 16:11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life [which is to live by every Word of God (Mat 4:4)]: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

1 John 3:22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight. 

Psalm 22

A prophecy of Jesus Christ the Passover Lamb of God

Psalm 22:1 My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?  22:2 O my God, I cry in the day time, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent.

A cry for God’s attention to his plight as quoted by Christ on the stake as he died. How many of us feel this way in the time of our trials? Let us not fall away when deliverance seems to be delayed but let us stand firm in faith towards God and his promises and endure all things for our Awesome God as Jesus Christ did.

This Psalm is a prophecy of Jesus Christ, and as he suffered we shall also be persecuted. See Hebrews 11.

Trust in God, he WILL deliver according to his promises in his own way and in his own good time. maybe allowing us to suffer and die as God the Father allowed his only between son to suffer and die; so that he could keep his promise to raise up faithful sons from corruption to incorruption for eternity!

1 Corinthians 15:42  So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: 15:43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: 15:44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

We are sown in physical death, to be reaped into a new spiritual body; even as baptism shows a  person being buried under the waters with a physical carnal nature, to be raised up a new person with  a new spiritual nature!  We must then continue in the spiritual nature of God and not seek to turn back to the carnal physical nature that we are being delivered out of.

15:45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul [physical creature]; the last Adam was made a [Jesus Christ was changed from flesh to spirit.] quickening spirit.

15:46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. 15:47 The first man is of the earth, earthy [physical]: the second man is the Lord from heaven [spiritual].

15:48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. 15:49  And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

If we sincerely repent of breaking God’s law and then continue in living by EVERY WORD of GOD; we shall be raised up to eternal life.

15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

If we remain carnal and not subject to every Word of God; we shall NOT enter the resurrection to spirit.

15:51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we [the faithful and chosen] shall all be changed, 52 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. 15:53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

15:54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, [the physical will be changed to spirit] and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

The faithful who live by every Word of God in Christ-like zeal shall be heard of God and delivered by God in that day.

Psalm 22:3 But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.

22:4 Our fathers [the godly of Hebrews 11] trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou [they will be delivered from the grave] didst deliver them.  22:5 They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded.

The wicked scorn the godly as contemptible, but God will deliver them.

22:6 But I am a worm, [the wicked laugh to scorn those who love and live by the Word of God], and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people. 22:7 All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying, 22:8 He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him. 

The wicked see the physical troubles and death of the godly righteous and judge there is no profit in serving God, not understanding that God is trying us to perfect his people’s zeal and loyalty and will yet deliver us from the grave to eternal life. 

This is a prophecy of Jesus Christ, who knew God the Father from the womb. 

22:9 But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother’s breasts. 22:10 I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother’s belly.

God the Father was always close to Christ and is always near those who love him and live by his Word.

22:11 Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help. 22:12 Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round. 22:13 They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion. 

Jesus died as the Lamb of God for us, so that as he was resurrected, we might also be resurrected to spirit and eternal life.

22:14 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels. 22:15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.

22:16 For dogs [packs of vicious attackers]  have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.  22:17 I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me. 22:18 They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.

Jesus calls on God for deliverance

22:19 But be not thou far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste thee to help me. 22:20 Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling [life] from the power of the dog. 22:21 Save me from the lion’s mouth: for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns. 

Jesus the Lamb of God declared God the Father and taught that we should all live by every Word of God (Mat 4:4) and that all should continually praise and glorify God the Father in words and in our deeds of doing God’s will as he did.

22:22 I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee. 22:23 Ye that fear the LORD, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel.

God the Father heard the cry for deliverance from Jesus Christ the Passover lamb of God, and raised him up from the grave to eternal life; and if we faint not in pleasing God and living by God’s Word, we shall also be raised up to eternal life.

22:24 For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him; but when he cried unto him, he [God the Father] heard.

22:25 My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation: I will pay my vows [Jesus Christ sacrificed himself as the Lamb of God as he had committed himself to do from the foundations of the world] before them that fear him.

22:26 The meek [the humble before God to live by God’s Word shall be delivered from the grave] shall eat [shall internalize the Word of God] and be satisfied [the humble shall be full of the Word of God]: they shall praise the LORD that seek him: your heart [those that seek God in humility and zeal to live by God’s Word shall live forever] shall live for ever.

22:27 All the ends of the world shall remember and [in the Kingdom of God the earth shall turn to God] turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee. 22:28 For the kingdom is the LORD’s: and he is the governor among the nations.

22:29 All they that be fat [those that flourish, the living] upon earth shall eat and worship: all they that go down to the dust [the dying] shall bow before him: and [all shall know that only God gives eternal life] none can keep alive his own soul.

22:30 A seed [the descendants of the nations] shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation [that generation {the millennial generations} shall belong to the LORD]

22:31 They [the resurrected chosen] shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people [to all the future generations] that shall be born, that he hath [that the Lamb of God was sacrificed for sin;  and the way of Salvation shall be declared open to all peoples] done this.

Psalm 34

Rejoicing over God’s deliverance from the grave in a resurrection to spirit, a prophecy of Messiah the Christ and his resurrection as the first of many to also be delivered from the grave

Psalm 34:1 I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. 34:2 My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. 34:3 O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.

When we live by every Word of God the Father in Christ-like zeal; God will deliver us from fear of death and the grave

34:4 I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. 34:5 They [the faithful]  looked [put their trust in God and obeyed Him]  unto him, and were lightened [enlightened with truth and encouraged]: and their faces were not ashamed [because God keeps His promises].

34:6 This poor [humble man, poor in the spirit of self will]  man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.  34:7 The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him [God delivers those who love and respect him enough to live by his Word], and delivereth them.

God is good and full of mercy and deliverance for all those who put their trust in him to live by every Word of God  

34:8 O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.  34:9 O fear [greatly respect and hold in awe] the LORD, ye his saints: for there is no want [no lack of deliverance from sin and death]  to them that fear him.

Even though the mighty perish, God’s faithful will be preserved

34:10 The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing.

34:11 Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear [love, faithful obedience and respect] of the LORD.

If you desire victory over bondage to Satan and sin, and the gift of eternal life then learn to live by every Word of God

34:12 What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good?  34:13 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. 34:14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue [godliness, for only God is good] it.

God the Father watched over and will deliver from death and the grave all those who love him enough to live by every Word of God

34:15 The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.

God the Father will destroy all those who refuse to live by every Word of God, rejecting God and the truth of his Word

34:16 The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.

God’s Word is righteousness and the righteous will live by every Word of God,  God will deliver all those who passionately live by every Word of God in the resurrection to spirit

34:17 The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. 34:18 The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart  [are sincerely repentant abhorring their sins]; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit [hav the stubborn spirit of self will crushed to powder in submissive humility before God] .

God shall deliver those who live by every Word of God but the wicked shall perish in their unrepentant wickedness

34:19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.  34:20 He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken [a prophecy of the death and resurrection of Christ the righteous] .

34:21 Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous [those who despise others who are zealous to live by every Word of God shall not be in the resurrection to spirit, even if they have been baptized and attend some corporate assembly] shall be desolate.  34:22 The LORD redeemeth the soul [lives] of his servants [by the blood sacrifice of the Lamb of God] : and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.

John 19:32 Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with him.

Jesus being already dead they speared him. Now blood and water came forth; the blood bearing record that his death in sacrifice for humanity covers the sins of the repentant with the blood of the Lamb of God, as in Egypt the blood of the Passover lamb was placed on the door posts that Israel might be delivered from the destroyer.

The water coming forth; bares record that Jesus Christ through his teachings and sacrifice coupled with our repentance and diligent faithful obedience: is the source of the Living Waters of eternal life! John 4 and John 7.

19:33 But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs: 19:34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.  19:35 And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe.

John witnessed this personally and his record is true.

19:36 For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken. 19:37 And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced.

 

Psalm 69

A prophecy of the sacrificial death of Messiah the Christ, the curse of spiritual blindness on Israel, and the final deliverance of Israel  

Multitudes of enemies are likened to a flood of waters and being helpless before the enemy is like trying to get free from deep mud and quicksand.

Psalm 69:1 Save me, O God; for the waters [many enemies] are come in unto my soul [to take my life].  69:2 I sink in deep mire [A prophecy of mire as a type of the grave], where there is no standing: I am come into deep waters, where the floods [a flood of enemies] overflow me.

Messiah the Christ put his trust in God, even when the situation seemed hopeless, and was rewarded with resurrection to eternal life and exalted on high

69:3 I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried: mine eyes fail while I wait for my God.  69:4 They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of mine head: they that would destroy me, being mine enemies wrongfully, are mighty: then I restored that which I took not away.

The faithful know that God knows all things, and those reproached and shamed by the enemy will receive a good  reward.  The reward of the faithful called out is sure; and the reward of Christ the first born is double.

Isaiah 61:7 For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them.

Jesus knew that if he had sinned, God the Father would know it

Psalm 69:5 O God, thou knowest my foolishness; and my sins are not hid from thee.  

The true servant’s of God shall never be ashamed of Christ their Deliverer, because he gave his life for us

69:6 Let not them that wait on thee, O Lord GOD of hosts, be ashamed for my sake: let not those that seek thee be confounded for my sake, O God of Israel. 69:7 Because for thy sake I have borne reproach; shame hath covered my face.

A prophecy of Christ and his love for God and the Word of God, estranging him from Judah

69:8 I am become a stranger unto my brethren, and an alien unto my mother’s [the tribe of Judah, most of the Jews] children.

Messiah is zealous for God the Father’s temple both physical and spiritual and he will not permit any uncleanness or sin in the lives of God’s faithful

 69:9 For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.

Christ wept over the sins of the people and humbled himself in fasting

69:10 When I wept, and chastened my soul with fasting, that was to my reproach.  69:11 I made sackcloth [mourning and humility] also my garment; and I became a proverb to them.

Messiah was mocked by the people but he was always absolutely faithful to God the Father

69:12 They that sit in the gate speak against me; and I was the song of the drunkards.  69:13 But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O LORD, in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation.  69:14 Deliver me out of the mire [the grave], and let me not sink: let me be delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters [deliver Christ from the grave and from the hands of many enemies].

69:15 Let not the waterflood [of enemies] overflow me, neither let the deep [a type of the grave See Jonah] swallow me up, and let not the pit [grave] shut her mouth upon me.

69:16 Hear me, O LORD; for thy lovingkindness is good: turn unto me according to the multitude of thy tender mercies.  69:17 And hide not thy face from thy servant; for I am in trouble: hear me speedily. 69:18 Draw nigh unto my soul, and redeem [save my life] it: deliver me because of mine enemies.

Jesus calls on God to remember his reproach and to raise him up from the grave

69:19 Thou hast known my reproach, and my shame, and my dishonour: mine adversaries are all before thee.  69:20 Reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness: and I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none.

69:21 They gave me also gall for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.

Judah was corrected by the Roman prince Titus, and Judah was largely darkened from understanding until Christ should return

69:22 Let their table become a snare before them: and that which should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap.  69:23 Let their eyes be darkened, that they see [do not understand for a time] not; and make their loins continually to shake [being oppressed].  69:24 Pour out thine indignation upon them, and let thy wrathful anger take hold of them.  69:25 Let their habitation be desolate; and let none dwell in their tents.

Romans 11:25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

This curse is upon those who rejected and persecuted Messiah because God the Father had allowed Christ to be smitten for the sins of the people

Psalm 69:26 For they persecute him whom thou hast smitten; and they talk to the grief of those [they speak against He who God wounded for the sins of the people]  whom thou hast wounded.

69:27 Add iniquity unto their iniquity: and let them not come into thy righteousness.  69:28 Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous [until Christ returns to deliver them].

Christ was poor in the spirit of stubborn self-will and greatly grieved by sin, he lived enthusiastically by every Word of God and was resurrected and raised on high for doing so

69:29 But I am poor and sorrowful: let thy salvation, O God, set me up on high.  69:30 I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.

Jesus Christ willingly and passionately loving and living by every Word of God, even to die to obey God the Father; made his sacrifice of greater value than all the animals ever sacrificed to God 

 69:31 This also shall please the LORD better than an ox or bullock that hath horns and hoofs.

Those who humbly seek to live by every Word of God shall greatly rejoice in the application of the sacrifice of Christ to cleanse them from all repented past sins, and they shall live forever

69:32 The humble shall see this, and be glad: and your heart shall live that seek God.

God will remember Israel and Judah in the coming tribulation and will end the curse and save them

69:33 For the LORD heareth the poor, and despiseth not his prisoners.  69:34 Let the heaven and earth praise him, the seas, and every thing that moveth therein. 69:35 For God will save Zion, and will build the cities of Judah: that they may dwell there, and have it in possession.

The hearts of Israel and Judah shall yet be converted and the spiritual  blindness shall be healed, then they shall live in the Word of the L(RD forever more

69:36 The seed also of his servants shall inherit it: and they that love his name shall dwell therein.

 

Psalm 110

Jesus Christ, after giving his life in sacrifice for the sins of humanity was resurrected to spirit and ascended back to the glory which he had given up to be made flesh; and remains there waiting for the appointed time to return to the earth and rule all nations.

Psalm 110:1 The LORD [God the Father] said unto my Lord [Messiah the Christ], Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.

Jesus Christ will gather up God’s faithful in a resurrection to spirit, and will then come with God’s chosen to rule all nations.  Jesus Christ will rule the earth from Jerusalem and God’s chosen will rule over the nations around the world.

110:2 The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.

All peoples will be thoroughly humbled in great tribulation and when Messiah comes and destroys the wicked gathered at Jerusalem,  the people of Jerusalem will be ready to welcome him with even greater rejoicing than when he entered the city before his crucifixion.

110:3 Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth.

This Jesus Christ was the High Priest of God the Father Melchizedek before he gave up his God-hood to be made flesh and die for the repented sins of mankind.  He was then resurrected to spirit and returned to his office of spirit High Priest Melchizedek, replacing the temporary physical priesthood of Aaron which ended with the death of the Husband of Israel.  

110:4 The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.

When Christ comes he will destroy all resistance and bring in a reign of godly righteousness. 

110:5 The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath. 110:6 He shall judge among the heathen [unrepentant wicked], he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries.

The water of the brook is an analogy of the Holy Spirit, and Christ was full of God’s Spirit and zeal for every Word of God; therefore he was lifted up in resurrection to eternal life and exalted as King over all rulers.

110:7 He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.

Psalm 112

God is great and greatly to be praised for all he does for his faithful.  Every person who lives by every Word of God, although they may suffer in this world, will be resurrected to spirit and eternal life with many blessings.

Psalm 112:1 Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in his commandments.

Those who live by every Word of God will be resurrected to eternal life and as they diligently teach their children to also live by every Word of God the children will also be greatly blessed if they remain in the way.

112:2 His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright [the faithful to God] shall be blessed.

Great spiritual wealth will accrue in the house of those who wholeheartedly seek to live by every Word of God, and that spiritual wealth will follow them in the resurrection to spirit and they shall be blessed forever.

112:3 Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever.

The Word of God is light that chases away the darkness of ignorance and sin; Jesus Christ is the Word and the Light of godliness (John 1 and John 8:12).  Our LORD is full of mercy and co0mpassion for the sincerely repentant who wholehearted seek to internalize the righteousness of every Word of God.

112:4 Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.

Our LORD is merciful and gives to his beloved, rejecting the unrepentant; thereby ruling with wisdom and discretion.

112:5 A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.

The righteousness of our LORD is the whole Word of God, which will be wholeheartedly kept by the faithful person forever and ever.

112:6 Surely he shall not be moved [from faithfulness to every Word of God] for ever: the righteous [of every Word of God] shall be in everlasting remembrance.

Those who trust in the LORD to live by every Word of God need not fear even death itself.

112:7 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed [on godliness], trusting in the LORD.

Those who internalize and live by every Word of God will see the enemies of  Satan and sin destroyed. 

Jesus Christ is sitting at the right hand of God the Father waiting for his time to come to the earth to overwhelm his enemies of Satan and sin.  He gives mercy to the humble and repentant who are poor in the spirit of pride and self-justification.  His righteousness is the righteousness of every Word of God and he is exalted forever and ever.

112:8 His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies. 112:9 He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.

The unrepentant wicked will be vexed as they perish while the righteous who they have hated will prosper.

112:10 The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.

 

Hosea 11:1

11:1 When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt.

This text from Hosea referred to the deliverance of the people of Israel from bondage in Egypt.

In its dual sense the Gospel of Matthew applies it to the return from Egypt of Jesus and his family as a messianic prophecy.

Matthew 2:13  And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.

2:14 When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt: 2:15 And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.

 

Isaiah 7:10 Moreover the LORD spake again unto Ahaz, saying, 7:11 Ask thee a sign of the LORD thy God; ask it either in the depth, or in the height above. 7:12 But Ahaz said, I will not ask, neither will I tempt the LORD.

7:13 And he [Isaiah] said, Hear ye now, O house of David; Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will ye weary my God also?

Isaiah then prophesies of his own son Immanuel who was conceived in the usual way, as a type of the Messiah and his physical birth.

The Virgin Birth

The word “conceive” used here; when  referring to Mary and Jesus, is not consistent with the modern meaning of “conceive” which is the meeting of a sperm and an egg cell. 

The actual Hebrew word  hereh  means “to be with child, to be pregnant” and does not refer to the means by which the woman is with child.

Today one can take an egg and combine it with a sperm and then place the fertilized egg in the womb of a woman who is a third person and has nothing to do with the conception, only carrying the fertilized egg to maturity.

It was not until very recent modern times when the idea of surrogate motherhood came; that it could be understood that the Creator could be made flesh and reduced to the smallest human being and then placed inside Mary as his surrogate mother.  Christ was certainly physically born of Mary and was by that fact an heir of David; yet he is not a hybrid between God and man. 

The word “virgin” here which actually means “young girl,”  can be translated as a young girl [Isaiah’s wife], with no involvement of the meaning of a virgin as we understand it. 

Some have used that fact to argue against the virgin birth, but the matter is made plain in the New Testament

Luke 1:34  Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?

In fact this prophecy is dual; first referring to a son to be born to Isaiah’s wife named Immanuel as a fore-type; and also referring to the main fulfillment in the birth of Jesus by the virgin Mary (Luke 1:34). 

The virgin birth of Jesus comes from the New Testament:   Luke 1:34  Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?

The concept of surrogate pregnancy that we understand today,  was unknown by the translators in the days of the King James translators;  and John himself records that Mary was a virgin, not “known” by ANYONE.

It was the God personality who became God the Father, who by a miracle, reduced the actual Creator to the size of an embryo and placed him in the womb of Mary. There was NO sexual activity between God and Mary, such as placing his sperm inside Mary: which would have been adultery on the part of God.

While Jesus was born of a virgin of David and supposedly into the line of David; he himself said that he was not a son of David at all but only appeared to be so through being born into the family of David.

Jesus denied being a literal son of David. He was only a son of David by being born into the family of David and not by conception with God’s sperm and Mary’s egg which would be rape and adultery by God the Father! 

Jesus was a son of David, because he was born into the family of David.  Yes, Jesus was born to Mary; but he was not conceived as a sperm uniting with an egg of Mary.  She was his surrogate mother!  Therefore we may say that Christ was born to a woman of the line of David, but was not conceived by Mary, David’s descendant!

Jesus told the Pharisees that he was not the son of David.

Matthew 22:41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, 22:42  Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The son of David.

22:43  He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying, 22:44  The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool? 22:45  If David then call [David called Messiah/Christ: Lord, how then is Christ, David’s son?] him Lord, how is he his son?

Jesus [Hebrew: Yeshua] was the very Creator changed into the tiniest of human beings; fully giving up his God-hood to become fully human; and is now resurrected back into God-hood and eternal life as the High Priest of God the Father.

Was Jesus Christ man or God?

Quite simply: He was the Creator God, FULLY GOD; BEFORE he was made flesh! 

Then He willingly  gave up his God-hood to become flesh and be placed in Mary as the smallest possible human being, then to be born fully human! 

He then overcame the world and died for man, to be resurrected back to spirit, exalted back to being fully God! 

This could never have been understood, until the modern scientific discovery of surrogate motherhood was understood.

 

Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin [young girl in the fore-type as the mother of Isaiah’s son Immanuel; and referring to a true virgin (Luke 1:34) in the main fulfillment of the birth of Jesus the son of Mary]  shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

The son of Isaiah was named Immanuel [God is with us; ie with Isaiah and his family], as a type; that a true virgin, Mary [Hebrew: Miriam]  shall bear Jesus [Hebrew: Yeshua; meaning Salvation].  Jesus shall know from his earliest life to choose the good and godly will of the Father, and to despise all evil and compromise with the Father’s will, nature, teachings and commandments.

7:15 Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good.

After the inset prophecy of the birth of Christ, the prophecy shifts from Jesus to Immanuel the son of Isaiah and Isaiah prophesies of a son of Ahaz, and Judah and the Assyrian defeat of Israel. 

 7:16 For before the child shall know to refuse the evil, and choose the good, the land that thou [Judah] abhorrest [Syria and the ten tribes] shall be forsaken of both her kings [conquered by the Assyrians].

Isaiah says that God shall bring the Assyrians against Syria and the ten tribes.

A Prophecy of the Latter Day Coming of Christ

Isaiah 9:2 The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.

The elect rejoiced when Messiah came, and will rejoice when he returns

9:3 Thou hast multiplied the nation, and not increased the joy: they joy before thee according to the joy in harvest, and as men rejoice when they divide the spoil.

Christ has broken the yoke of sin with his sacrifice

9:4 For thou [Messiah] [Christ through his perfect life of faithfulness to God the Father, and HIS sacrifice and resurrection as our High Priest has broken the yoke of Satan and the oppression of sin from off the backs of the zealous elect], hast broken the yoke of his burden, and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor  as in the day of Midian. 9:5 For every battle of the warrior is with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but this shall be with burning and fuel of fire.

9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. 9:7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

 

Coming to Rule

Isaiah 11:12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.

The brotherhood of Judah and Israel shall be restored

11:13 The envy also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vex Ephraim.

When Christ comes, Judah and Israel shall be gathered together to Palestine and they shall spoil those who spoiled them under the banner of Jesus Christ the King of kings and under the banner of David king of a once again united Israel.

Even after the tribulation many millions of Israel [the British people, America, Scandinavia, the Low Countries and Judah] will still be left, and they will remain in their latter day lands while a representative number will return to Palestine.

Jordan, Gaza, Syria, Lebanon and Turkey shall serve Israel, and all of Palestine shall be given to Israel

11:14 But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the west; they shall spoil them of the east together: they shall lay their hand upon Edom and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them.

Jesus Christ will clear the way and open the highways for Israel to pass again into the land promised to Isaac.

11:15 And the LORD shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea; and with his mighty wind shall he shake his hand over the river, and shall smite it in the seven streams, and make men go over dryshod. 11:16 And there shall be an highway [Messiah will lead Israel with a high hand as he led Israel out of Egypt after the Passover]  for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.

 

Isaiah 12

Israel and all nations; shall turn to God in deep wholehearted repentance to seek him out; and will rejoice in their deliverance, praising him.

Isaiah 12:1 And in that day thou shalt say, O LORD, I will praise thee: though thou wast angry with me, thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortedst me. 12:2 Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH [YHVH] is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation [quoting the Song of  Moses].

The repentant nations shall receive the waters of life [the Holy Spirit] with great joy and shall learn of Christ and keep all his teachings, ways, will and commandments, living by every Word of God and completely internalizing the very nature of God. 

No more will men exalt their own ways or false gods and other human beings above the Eternal and the Word of God!

12:3 Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation. 12:4 And in that day shall ye say, Praise the LORD, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted. 12:5 Sing unto the LORD; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth. 12:6 Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee.

 

Isaiah 53

More prophecies of Messiah the Christ [Hebrew:  Yeshua] and his coming in the flesh. He would be a plain ordinary man in appearance; growing up totally dedicated to God the Father, as we should also be.

Isaiah 53:1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? 53:2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

Not recognized by most and despised for his teachings – which were different from the religious establishment – he was rejected by most.

53:3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

Jesus Christ [Hebrew: Yeshua] was sacrificed for our transgressions and bore the sins of the sincerely repentant, yet most of the people did not understand or repent and would follow him in zeal for every Word of God the Father.

53:4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

When we repent and follow all Christ’s teachings [doctrine] zealously, we shall be spiritually healed and our sins will be covered, so that we are reco0nciled to God the Father in heaven. In context this is about sin, repentance and the removal of the sin that separates us from the Father to heal our relationship and bring peace between us and God the Father in heaven. This is not directly about physical healing.

53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

Every person has gone astray at times and if we repent and turn to learn of and keep every Word of God the Father; the sacrifice of Christ will be applied to us and Christ will bear our iniquities that we may be reconciled to God the Father.

53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

Jesus Christ allowed himself to be killed for humanity and did not resist his killers.

53:7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

Christ was taken into the prison to be beaten and then taken out to be killed.

53:8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.

Christ was buried in the tomb of a wealthy man, because he had done no sin.

53:9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.

Yeshua’s willing sacrifice, fulfilling God the Father’s will was pleasing to the Father; for by this means many people will be saved and reconciled to the Father; therefore God the Father raised him up in a resurrection back to spirit and the glory which he had had with the Father before giving up that glory to be made flesh.

53:10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.

Christ shall see the fruit of his work; for many shall repent and be justified by his sacrifice and resurrection. Christ shall bear the sins of the sincerely repentant; and they shall learn by his example and instructions, to do the Father’s will and to live by every Word of God the Father.

53:11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.

Because Yeshua [Jesus Christ] gave his life to fulfil God  the Father’s will and to save humanity; he shall be exalted by God the Father!

Let us repent and SIN NO MORE!

53:12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

In Jeremiah 31:15, the phrase “because her children are no more” refers to the captivity of Rachel’s children in Assyria. The subsequent verses describe their return to Israel.  This like many of the other prophesies  of Messiah is a dual prophecy also speaking of the death of the children of Judah by Herod.  Judah [Rachael] is to be comforted when the children are resurrected and brought back to their homes.

Jeremiah 31:15 Thus saith the LORD; A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping; Rahel weeping for her children refused to be comforted for her children, because they were not.

31:16 Thus saith the LORD; Refrain thy voice from weeping, and thine eyes from tears: for thy work shall be rewarded, saith the LORD; and they shall come again from the land of the enemy.
