500 years BC

Postby Jay Jolicoeur » Wed Dec 14, 2005 2:17 pm

As I read the Bible I never cease to be amazed by God's soveriegn plan. About 500 years before Jesus's birth the Bible talks him. One of my favorite places is Isaiha 53.

Isaiah 53
1 Who has believed our message
and to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?

2 He grew up before him like a tender shoot,
and like a root out of dry ground.
He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him,
nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.

3 He was despised and rejected by men,
a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering.
Like one from whom men hide their faces
he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

4 Surely he took up our infirmities
and carried our sorrows,
yet we considered him stricken by God,
smitten by him, and afflicted.

5 But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him,
and by his wounds we are healed.

6 We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to his own way;
and the LORD has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.

7 He was oppressed and afflicted,
yet he did not open his mouth;
he was led like a lamb to the slaughter,
and as a sheep before her shearers is silent,
so he did not open his mouth.

8 By oppression [a] and judgment he was taken away.
And who can speak of his descendants?
For he was cut off from the land of the living;
for the transgression of my people he was stricken. [b]

9 He was assigned a grave with the wicked,
and with the rich in his death,
though he had done no violence,
nor was any deceit in his mouth.

10 Yet it was the LORD's will to crush him and cause him to suffer,
and though the LORD makes [c] his life a guilt offering,
he will see his offspring and prolong his days,
and the will of the LORD will prosper in his hand.

11 After the suffering of his soul,
he will see the light of life [d] and be satisfied [e] ;
by his knowledge [f] my righteous servant will justify many,
and he will bear their iniquities.

12 Therefore I will give him a portion among the great, [g]
and he will divide the spoils with the strong, [h]
because he poured out his life unto death,
and was numbered with the transgressors.
For he bore the sin of many,
and made intercession for the transgressors.

There are so many other prophesies about Jesus. Please share ones that you have read.

Thats basically what the Old testament is.
- It spelled out the laws for the Jewish people,
-and it spoke of Jesus, and his coming. All prophecies from the OT have been fullfilled through Jesus. So if those prophecies have been fulfilled what does that make us think about Revelation? I dont want to start a huge controversy here, but it does make you think a little bit.

When you think of how God fulfilled those prophesies to the letter it produces a nervous anticipation when you read Revelation. When St. Helens was fuming I called a buddy and had him read Matthew 24 (I was driving) verse 4-8 "And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all[a]these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences,[b] and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows." Some translations say the beginning of birth pains. Which implies that something is coming. I had my friend look up on the Internet Natural Disasters 2004 it was amazing. I believe that God uses nature to get our attention. II Peter 3:9 says "The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance." He wants all to come to repentance."

His hands will be pierced

Isn't there some where in Psalms where it says that Jesus's hands will be pierced? And doesn't the Bible talk about crucifiction before it ever was invented?
