     The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shone.
Isaiah 9:2 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/isa.9.2.ESV       


Those who walked in darkness are Israel all through their history they had not recognised or obeyed God but God had not abandoned them he was going to send his son the light of the world.
Mathew confirms that this prophecy is confirmed in Christ.

        so that what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled:   ?The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles?   the people dwelling in darkness have seen a great light, and for those dwelling in the region and shadow of death, on them a light has dawned.?
Matthew 4:14-‬16 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.4.14-16.ESV   


Unfortunately Israel refused to see the light that is the higher archey many of the ordenary people saw the light and followed him.
And the gentiles who also lived in darkness would see this great light after the resurrection of our Lord when his Apostles were sent out into the world to preach the gospel of the light of the world Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour.

Love and Peace

Hi

   I will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter dark sayings from of old,  things that we have heard and known, that our fathers have told us.  We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord , and his might, and the wonders that he has done.
Psalm 78:2-‬4 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/psa.78.2-4.ESV     

    And he said, ?Go, and say to this people:  ??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 blind their eyes;  lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed.?
Isaiah 6:9-‬10 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/isa.6.9-10.ESV                   


The saying there's none so blind as those who will not see comes to mind our Lord would confirm the truthfulness of the above scripture.

        Then the disciples came and said to him, ?Why do you speak to them in parables?? And he answered them, ?To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given.  For to the one who has, more will be given, and he will have an abundance, but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away.  This is why I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand.  Indeed, in their case the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled that says:   ???You will indeed hear but never understand,  and you will indeed see but never perceive.?   For this people?s heart has grown dull, and with their ears they can barely hear, and their eyes they have closed, lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears and understand with their heart  and   turn, and I would heal them.?
Matthew 13:10-‬15 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.13.10-15.ESV 

         All these things Jesus said to the crowds in parables; indeed, he said nothing to them without a parable. This was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet:  ?I will open my mouth in parables;  I will utter what has been hidden since the foundation of the world.?
Matthew 13:34-‬35 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.13.34-35.ESV       


Here our Lord is speaking about Israel it is they who had made a conscious effort to close their ears and close their eyes to the truth so let us not make the same mistake let us open our eyes and ears to the word of God as we have it in the holy scriptures.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Moving on

      The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;   to proclaim the year of the Lord ?s favor,  and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn;
Isaiah 61:1-‬2 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/isa.61.1-2.ESV     
ould

This prophecy of Isaiah is speaking of the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and what he would do and this prophecy has been fulfilled with the coming of our Lord and is confirmed by him in the NT.

        And the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written,    ?The Spirit of the Lord   is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.  He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind,   to set at liberty those who are oppressed,    to proclaim the year of the Lord?s favor.?
Luke 4:17-‬19 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/luk.4.17-19.ESV       


A little later our Lord confirms the truthfulness of this prophecysy  when he says

    And he began to say to them, ?Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.?
Luke 4:21 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/luk.4.21.ESV     


What better proof do we need that Jesus is the Christ the son of God

Love and Peace

Hi
Moving on

The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind,  ?You are a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.?
Psalm 110:4 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/psa.110.4.ESV       


Melchizedek was a priest for ever he was an eternal being a priest of God.

    18  And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God     

Our Lord was also a priest who also brought forth bread and wine the bread was his body the wine was his blood.

   Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, ?Take, eat; this is my body.?  And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, ?Drink of it, all of you,  for this is my blood of the  covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.  I tell you I will not drink again of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father?s kingdom.?
Matthew 26:26-‬29 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.26.26-29.ESV       


Our Lord is a priest forever and this is confirmed  in the NT

   So also Christ did not exalt himself to be made a high priest, but was appointed by him who said to him,  ?You are my Son, today I have begotten you?;  as he says also in another place,  ?You are a priest forever, after the order of Melchizedek.?
Hebrews 5:5-‬6 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/heb.5.5-6.ESV

Hi
Moving on

      6  Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion

    9  Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass   


These prophecies were fulfilled with the coming of our Lord at his first advent as confirmed in the NT

  37  And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS     

  7  And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments on him; and he sat upon him.

 8  And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down branches off the trees, and strawed them in the way.

 9  And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord:

 10  Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.

 11  And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and when he had looked round about upon all things, and now the eventide was come, he went out unto Bethany with the twelve.     


How wonderful how accurate the prophecies of the OT are we can truly believe in there fulfillment and not forgetting there are still prophesies to be fulfilled.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Next prophecy

   Out of the mouth of babies and infants, you have established strength because of your foes, to still the enemy and the avenger.
Psalm 8:2 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/psa.8.2.ESV           


Again we have conformation in th NT

          But when the chief priests and the scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying out in the temple, ?Hosanna to the Son of David!? they were indignant, and they said to him, ?Do you hear what these are saying?? And Jesus said to them, ?Yes; have you never read,   ??Out of the mouth of   infants and nursing babies  you have prepared praise???
Matthew 21:15-‬16 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.21.15-16.ESV           


We can only marvel at the amount of times the prophecies of the OT are fulfilled in the new just shows how reliable Gods word is in every detail.

Love and Peace

     Even my close friend in whom I trusted, who ate my bread, has lifted his heel against me.  But you, O Lord , be gracious to me, and raise me up, that I may repay them!
Psalm 41:9-‬10 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/psa.41.9-10.ESV

   So it was annulled on that day, and the sheep traders, who were watching me, knew that it was the word of the Lord . Then I said to them, ?If it seems good to you, give me my wages; but if not, keep them.? And they weighed out as my wages thirty pieces of silver.
Zechariah 11:11-‬12 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/zec.11.11-12.ESV   


These verses are speaking of Judus one of the decipels it was he who was to betray Jesus all things were to be done according to the scriptures and only God could know what was going to happen in the future because he knows the end from the beginning.

    While he was still speaking, there came a crowd, and the man called Judas, one of the twelve, was leading them. He drew near to Jesus to kiss him, but Jesus said to him, ?Judas, would you betray the Son of Man with a kiss??
Luke 22:47-‬48 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/luk.22.47-48.ESV

     Then one of the twelve, whose name was Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests and said, ?What will you give me if I deliver him over to you?? And they paid him thirty pieces of silver. And from that moment he sought an opportunity to betray him.
Matthew 26:14-‬16 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.26.14-16.ESV     


Here we have conformation of the prophecies when you thing of our Lord who was well acquainted with all the scriptures he knew exactly what awaited him it must have been a terrible burden to carry just goes to show how much he loved us and the Father.

     Then I said to them, ?If it seems good to you, give me my wages; but if not, keep them.? And they weighed out as my wages thirty pieces of silver. Then the Lord said to me, ?Throw it to the potter?? the Lordly price at which I was priced by them. So I took the thirty pieces of silver and threw them into the house of the Lord , to the potter.
Zechariah 11:12-‬13 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/zec.11.12-13.ESV         


This was the price paid to Judus to betray  Jesus which he was to throw to the potter when it dawned on him what he had done then he went and killed himself.
All this supported in the NT.

     saying, ?I have sinned by betraying innocent blood.? They said, ?What is that to us? See to it yourself.? And throwing down the pieces of silver into the temple, he departed, and he went and hanged himself. But the chief priests, taking the pieces of silver, said, ?It is not lawful to put them into the treasury, since it is blood money.? So they took counsel and bought with them the potter?s field as a burial place for strangers. Therefore that field has been called the Field of Blood to this day. Then was fulfilled what had been spoken by the prophet Jeremiah, saying, ?And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him on whom a price had been set by some of the sons of Israel, and they gave them for the potter?s field, as the Lord directed me.?
Matthew 27:4-‬10 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.27.4-10.ESV       


It seams Judus repented of what he had done and returned the thirty pieces of silver which the priests used to buy the potters field.
Raises an interesting question as Judus repented could he or would he be forgiven for this terrible crime.

Love and Peace
