For You will not abandon my soul to Sheol; Nor will You allow Your Holy One to undergo decay.
The revelation of the Messiah is God will not allow him to decay or be deceased forever. As we know Jesus died for our sins, and after 3 days rose from the grave to live eternally and rule as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Nobody else can ever make this same claim, the resurrection of Jesus Christ not only fulfills Biblical prophecy, but proves Jesus is the true God in the flesh
“But God raised Him up again, putting an end to the agony of death, since it was impossible for Him to be held in its power. Acts 2:24
Peter preached this same scripture of Psalms 16:10 at the Day of Pentecost. Many Jews believed that Psalms 16:10 was referring to King David, however as Peter states “Brethren, I may confidently say to you regarding the patriarch David that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us to this day.” (Acts 2:29)
David was not resurrected from the dead, Jesus Christ was, as God promised he would not allow his “Holy One’ to see decay. Davids physical body has decayed along time ago into dust, while Jesus has physically rose from the dead in his own body.
We can be confident in knowing Christ has fulfilled this prophecy as he is the only one who has defeated sin and death in Jesus Name Amen!
so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
Philippians 2:10 NASB
“I will surely tell of the decree of the LORD: He said to Me, ‘You are My Son, Today I have begotten You. Psalm 2:7
As we continue to look at the Messianic Prophesies in the Book of Psalms, here we discover the Holy Spirit revealed and confirmed Jesus is the Son of God. As we read in Psalm 2 , God has delivered his King (Psalm 2:6), that will not only reign forever, but will also be his Son
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life John 3:16
The original Greek word for “Begotten” is mongenes. Meaning “one and only” , “chosen one”, or “unique. The scriptures tell us clearly that there would be only one Messiah, only one Son of God that was fulfilled through Jesus Christ. There is no other name above the name of Jesus, as he is the only begotten Son of God, the second part of the Trinity.
Many Jewish rabbis say that there will or was multiple Messiahs to fulfill the prophecies in the Old Testament. This is clearly a contradiction to the Word of God. The Bible clearly states there is and will only be one Lord and Savior, and he was delivered to us as a child in Bethlehem.
Every knee will bow and tongue will confess one day that Jesus Christ is Lord Amen!
“Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.”
Luke 2:14 NASB
Upon You I was cast from birth; You have been my God from my mother’s womb. Psalm 22:10
This week we will continue the prophesies of Jesus Christ in the book of Psalms. Psalm 22 gives us a very detailed look into Jesus thoughts as he fulfilled his mission to be the Lamb of God to save the world from their sins. He displays his human side as well as his deity.
The Holy Spirit reveals here in Psalm 22:10 that Jesus would take on flesh and be born. As throughout Biblical prophecy it was known that the Messiah or Christ, would be a child born of a virgin, and he would be the Son of God. And Jesus reveals his struggle as a human, as he is prepared to become the suffering servant to take on the sins of the world.
As Jesus says in (Psalm 22:6) I am a worm and not a man, scorned and despised by everyone. Even today we see many who despise and scourn Jesus Christ. He took on the wages of our sins and punishment that we deserved and he didn’t. As Jesus said he was “cast from birth”. Meaning he left his throne in Heaven to become our sacrificial lamb for our sins.
So as we celebrate the birth of Christ, remember the gift he has already given us by his love and sacrifice. Don’t make light of the mission he fulfilled as our Lord and Savior in Jesus Name Amen!
For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;
Ephesians 2:8 NASB
for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
Luke 2:11 NASB
The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your fellow Israelites. You must listen to him. Deuteronomy 18:15
When you think of the prophet Moses, you probably view him as one of the greatest or maybe the greatest prophet of The Bible. Heres a man who personally talked to God and led the Israelites out of 400 years of slavery. However Moses himself stated, God was going to raise up someone even greater than Moses, and we should listen to him
First notice the terminology Moses uses here, Raise up! Its because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ that we have victory of sin and death. Moses is not only prophesying about our Lord Jesus Christ , but he’s also foretelling about the resurrection.
Moses also states, that the Messiah will be Jewish. As we know Jesus fulfilled this, he was born in Bethlehem, eventually living in Nazareth. He fulfilled the prophecy of being from the line of David, Jesus is The Lion of Judah
Some might say Moses was referring to Joshua, this only confirms the fulfillment of Jesus Christ even more. Joshua translated in Hebrew is Yeshua which translates to Jesus. It’s no coincidence that the one who superseded Moses had the same name as Jesus Christ.
For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. John 1:17
The gospel of John confirms the prophecy, after Moses delievered The Law of God, Jesus delivered truth and grace at the cross. Listen to Jesus Christ as Moses commanded, bow before the King of Kings Amen!
He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David;
Luke 1:32 NASB
