Jesus TOLD Us! Should We Not Listen?

Christ TOLD us (MORE than once) that the Old Testament Scriptures are about, and point to HIM! Why do we keep ignoring that fact? If we study/read only the New Testament (or portions of it), we have an incomplete Bible!

The day my eyes were really opened to this, and I began reading the Scriptures that way (SEEING the many types and shadows of Jesus, and WHY many were looking forward to The Messiah, and that we each NEED a propitiation for our sins, and that all of those “Bible stories” also show us the genealogy of The Messiah and that they are NOT stories (or promises to me, personally) for ME to pattern my life after…), was the day that almost ALL Scripture began to REALLY make SENSE and has only served to increase my sense of wonder and Faith. I can see God’s “signature” ALL OVER the pages of Scripture, and that there is NO WAY that ordinary human beings “came up with it to “control” the masses” (a lie I believed many years ago)…!

~[Jesus speaking] You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me, yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life. I do not receive glory from people. (John 5:39-41 ESV)

~And he [Jesus] said to them, “O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer these things and enter into his glory?” And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself. (Luke 24:25-27 ESV)

~Then he [Jesus, after His resurrection] said to them, “These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.” Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures, and said to them, “Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. And behold, I am sending the promise of my Father upon you. But stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high.” (Luke 24:44-49 ESV)

My prayer is that MANY more souls will actually see this in the reading of their Bible, and have their minds opened in this way also!

May the Peace that only The Lord can give (shalom), be with you,
~Annette
