It is so interesting to me as I'm reading through all the 10 commandments without warning we read in Deuteronomy 18:15 through 19 "The Lord your God will raise up a prophet like me,(Moses) from among you, your fellow Israelites. You must listen to him. I decided to research all the other mentions of the Messiah and the fullfilment and there were 44 mentions. Here are just a few; Born of a woman, Genesis 3:15 - fullfillment- Matthew 1:20 and Galations 4:4.
Born of a virgin, Isaiah 7:14, fullfilment, Matthew 1:22-23, Luke 1:26. Messiah born in Bethlehem, Micah 5:2 fulfillment Matthew 2:1, Luke 1:26. The Messiah would come from the line of Isaac, Genesis 17:4 Luke 3:34 From Jacob Numbers 24:17
I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not near . A star will come out of Jacob: A scepter will rise out of Israel! The Fullfilment is in Matthew 1:2 This just reminds that we serve a miraculous God who knows the plan of all our lives just the way He had a plan for Jesus to follow centuries before He was born.
That gives me such confidence in our father God who cares so much about every part of our lives.
I was also blessed through this reading and encouraged to hold in such love and reverence the God who made salvation possible through the gift of His only Son the one and only Jesus, His one and only Son.
Be blessed this week and be sure to watch Rachel and Mike Isota's testimony this Sunday and next Sunday on Channel 11 at 7:00 and Thursday on Channel 18 at 8:00
I love my Jesus
