Messiah, 120

 

~ Messiah’s Listeners Would Not Respond to The Gospel ~
 
“Search the Scriptures—they testify of Me.”
— Jesus Christ (John 5:39)
 
The Scripture
“And He said, ‘Go, and tell this people [primary reference is to Israel]: “Keep on hearing, but do not understand; keep on seeing, but do not perceive. Make the heart of this people dull, and their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and return and be healed’” (Isaiah 6:9-10). 
 
The Messiah
Jesus said, “The prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled, which says:Hearing you will hear and shall not understand, and seeing you will see and not perceive; for the hearts of this people have grown dull.Their ears are hard of hearing, and their eyes they have closed, lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, so that I should heal them’” (Matthew 13:14-15).
 “And He [Jesus Christ] said to them, ‘To you it has been given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God; but to those who are outside, all things come in parables, so thatSeeing they may see and not perceive, and hearing they may hear and not understand; lest they should turn, and their sins be forgiven them”’”  (Mark 4:11-12).  “And He [Jesus Christ] said, ‘To you it has been given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God, but to the rest it is given in parables, thatSeeing they may not see, and hearing they may not understand”’” (Luke 8:10).  “But Jesus, being aware of it, said to them, ‘Why do you reason because you have no bread? Do you not yet perceive nor understand? Is your heart stillhardened? Having eyes, do you not see? And having ears, do you not hear? And do you not remember? When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments did you take up?’They said to Him, ‘Twelve.’ Also, when I broke the seven for the four thousand, how many large baskets full of fragments did you take up?’And they said, ‘Seven.’ So He said to them, ‘How is it you do not understand’?” (Mark 8:17-21). 
 
~~~ EXPLANATORY “MESSIAH” NOTES ~~~   
Special Note: This particular Messiah post skipped three numbers in order to accurately reflect the Messiah posts. (Three of the previous posts contained two prophecies in one post.) 
 (1)  Each Saturday ALN posts an example of a Hebrew Scriptures prophecy (or foreshadowing) related to the coming Messiah which was fulfilled in the birth, life, death, or resurrection of Jesus Christ.
(2)  While extensive it will not be a complete list—there are hundreds of prophecies of the coming Messiah which have been fulfilled by one man—Jesus Christ at His First Coming.
(3) It is important that there are many more prophecies of the Messiah, yet unfulfilled, which Christians believe will be fulfilled at the time of His Second Coming. A particularly relevant Scripture verse in this regard is: “Do not despise prophesies” (1 Thessalonians 5:20).
(4)  These posts will typically consist only of Scripture—which speaks for itself.  Sometimes italicized or bold font will be used by ALN for emphasis.
(5)  The numbering of these fulfilled prophecies of the Messiah is used to differentiate individual posts. It is not chronological (either by time of the prophecy or by sequence in the life of the Messiah).  The posting sequence will, for the most part, be in the order that the prophecies appear in Scripture.
(6)  Because of the chosen methodology (#5 above) we will find many specific prophecies repeated multiple times throughout the Scriptures.
(7) These serial posts are in addition to our regular Tuesday ALN postings on random topics.
(8)  Subscription to ABUNDANT LIFE NOW blog is simple—just use the link on the left sidebar.  Once subscribed you will not miss future posts.
