Messianic Prophecy

April 2, 2014 Leave a comment

Yet it was the Lord’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer,
    and though the Lord makes his life an offering for sin,
he will see his offspring and prolong his days,
    and the will of the Lord will prosper in his hand.
After he has suffered,
    he will see the light of life and be satisfied;
by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many,
    and he will bear their iniquities.
Therefore I will give him a portion among the great,
    and he will divide the spoils with the strong,
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 (Isaiah 53:10-12, NIV).

For we did not follow cleverly devised stories when we told you about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in power, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. He received honor and glory from God the Father when the voice came to him from the Majestic Glory, saying, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” We ourselves heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with him on the sacred mountain.

We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation of things. For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit (vv. 16-21, NIV).

Obedience in Prophecy

February 21, 2011 Leave a comment

The first appearance of the word obedience in the NIV is Genesis 49:10.

The scepter will not depart from Judah,
   nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet,
until he to whom it belongs shall come
   and the obedience of the nations shall be his.

We read here about Jesus, the “Lion of Judah,” holding his scepter–an ancient symbol of royal authority.

Eventually, “the obedience of the nations” will belong to him.

Peter explains that biblical prophecy is based upon God’s words, delivered by people through the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit is a conduit of God’s will.
