God's Testimony Through The Word


"This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the prophets, and the Psalms" (Lk.24:44).

Today's verse contains words that Jesus spoke to his disciples, after appearing to them after the resurrection. He wanted to reinforce some things that would also be good for us to take a look at. Jesus wanted them and us to know that He was a part of God's plan way back into the times of Moses, the prophets, and the Psalms. Lets start with the prophesies of Moses. "And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel" (Gen.3:15). This tells of a conflict that would exist between Satan and Christ which was also referred to by Jesus (Jn.12:31-33). His resurrection made Him the fulfillment of this prophesy. In Gen.12:1-3, it says that through Abraham's seed (Christ) all nations would be blessed. "Your father Abraham rejoiced at the thought of seeing my day; he saw it and was glad" (Jn.8:56). Jesus made a direct reference to that in this verse. Then there are the words about the "prophet to come." "The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your brothers. You must listen to him" (Deut.18:15). This was to be a prophet like Moses, (Jesus) and they were to "listen to him." Jesus laid claim to being that prophet from God to whom people were to heed. "There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; that very word which I spoke will condemn him at the last day. For I did not speak of my own accord, but the Father who sent me commanded me what to say and how to say it" (Jn.12:48-49). When the apostles spoke of Christ in the Book of Acts, they declared that he was indeed a prophet. (Acts 3:22-26). We have a rich and wonderful testimony from God through His Word, that Jesus is the one who was spoken of though the prophesies of Moses. That Jesus was everything that he claimed to be... How great is that....

Have a wonderful day. Make a difference... Love mark Phil.4:11
