Hi
Moving on

    18  They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture         

The final humiliation everything our Lord had left in the world the soldiers took and cast lots for them so they would not have to tear them.
And there our Lord hung bleeding and naked we really need to come and look up to wonderful picture of love all this was for us sinners that we might be saved from everlasting destruction.
Again we see the above prophecy fulfilled in the NT.

   34  Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.     

         35  And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots           


And even in the last minutes of his life his heart was full of love and asked the Father to forgive those who crucified him

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Next

      It shall be eaten in one house; you shall not take any of the flesh outside the house, and you shall not break any of its bones.
Exodus 12:46 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/exo.12.46.ESV

   He keeps all his bones;  not one of them is broken.
Psalm 34:20 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/psa.34.20.ESV     


The verse from Exodus is speaking of the Passover lamb and of course our Lord Jesus is our Passover lamb and we have eyewitness accounts in the NT that confirms that this is what happened to our Lord.

       33  But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs:

 34  But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.

 35  And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe.

 36  For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken     


So we can be absolutely sure that our Lord Jesus Christ is our Passover lamb who was sacrificed for the sins of the whole world what a wonderful gift priceless.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Moving on

          1  To the chief Musician upon Aijeleth Shahar, A Psalm of David. My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring     

It must have been very hard for the Father not to intervene here was the son he loved in the last throes of dying a most horrific death and would do nothing to save him but it was nessarsery that the son must die for the sins of the world and to fulfill all that was written about him in the scriptures.
Thats why all these things are witnessed in the NT so that we can have no doubts and believe.

        46  And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me     

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Moving on

    In return for my love they accuse me, but I give myself to prayer.
Psalm 109:4 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/psa.109.4.ESV       


Our Lord had been falsely accused and abused and nailed to the cross and even then his thoughts and love was for those who accused  and abused him his prayers were for them.

      And Jesus said, ?Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.? And they cast lots to divide his garments.
Luke 23:34 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/luk.23.34.ESV     


What wonderful Love he shows for his enemies

Love and Peace

Hi
Moving on

      ?And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and pleas for mercy, so that, when they look on me, on him whom they have pierced, they shall mourn for him, as one mourns for an only child, and weep bitterly over him, as one weeps over a firstborn.
Zechariah 12:10 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/zec.12.10.ESV       


Another wonderful prophecy of what our Lord  would do when he came into the world I think these words are directed to Israel it was Israel that nailed him to the cross  and when Israel realise what they have done and to whom the did it and they accept the Lord Jesus Christ as the son of God the savior of the world they will weep over him when they realise what they have done.

We see this confirmed in the NT

      But one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and at once there came out blood and water. He who saw it has borne witness? his testimony is true, and he knows that he is telling the truth? that you also may believe.
John 19:34-‬35 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.19.34-35.ESV

Hi
Moving on

        And they made his grave with the wicked  and with a rich man in his death, although he had done no violence, and there was no deceit in his mouth.
Isaiah 53:9 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/isa.53.9.ESV           


Here we have our Lord after his crucifixion lade in the grave of a rich man an innocent man who had did no wrong laid in the grave of sinners but all things prophesied in the OT has to be fulfilled to the letter this is so we can believe that Christ is the son of God who died for the sins of the world.
The NT confirms that the above prophecy was fulfilled

      When it was evening, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who also was a disciple of Jesus. He went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Then Pilate ordered it to be given to him. And Joseph took the body and wrapped it in a clean linen shroud and laid it in his own new tomb, which he had cut in the rock. And he rolled a great stone to the entrance of the tomb and went away.
Matthew 27:57-‬60 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.27.57-60.ESV

Hi
Moving on

    For you will not abandon my soul to Sheol,  or let your holy one see corruption.
Psalm 16:10 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/psa.16.10.ESV     

   But God will ransom my soul from the power of Sheol, for he will receive me. Selah
Psalm 49:15 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/psa.49.15.ESV               


Here we have the promises of God concerning his Son Jesus Christ that he would not remain in the grave but God the Father would raise him up to eternal life because he had obeyed the law unto death and so God raised him up to sit at his right hand side until all his enemies are made his footstool.
All this is confirmed in the NT.

   And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men. But the angel said to the women, ?Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. See, I have told you.?
Matthew 28:2-‬7 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.28.2-7.ESV   

     ?Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a man attested to you by God with mighty works and wonders and signs that God did through him in your midst, as you yourselves know? this Jesus,  delivered up according to the definite plan and foreknowledge of God, you crucified and killed by the hands of lawless men. For David says concerning him,  ??I saw the Lord always before me, for he is at my right hand that I may not be shaken;  therefore my heart was glad, and my tongue rejoiced; my flesh also will dwell in hope.  For you will not abandon my soul to Hades,  or let your Holy One see corruption.  You have made known to me the paths of life; you will make me full of gladness with your presence.?  ?Brothers, I may say to you with confidence about the patriarch David that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. Being therefore a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that he would set one of his descendants on his throne, he foresaw and spoke about the resurrection of the Christ, that he was not abandoned to Hades, nor did his flesh see corruption. This Jesus God raised up, and of that we all are witnesses.
Acts 2:22-‬23, ‬25-‬32 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/act.2.22-32.ESV 


Here we have eye witnesses conformation that all of the above concerning the resurrection of Christ is true without any shadow of  doubt we know that Jesus died and was raised up to the right hand of God the Father and we know he will come again to judge the quick and the dead.
Come Lord Jesus Come.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi

         Lift up your heads, O gates! And be lifted up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.  Who is this King of glory? The Lord , strong and mighty, the Lord , mighty in battle!  Lift up your heads, O gates! And lift them up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.  Who is this King of glory?  The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory! Selah
Psalm 24:7-‬10 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/psa.24.7-10.ESV     


The above text is referring to our Lord Jesus Christ after his resurrection he would be raised up to heaven to sit at the right of God the Father to watch that his enemies be made his footstool he is the King of glory who will return to take up his rightful place here on earth as King of Kings.
All this is confirmed by his Apostles in the NT

      And he led them out as far as Bethany, and lifting up his hands he blessed them. While he blessed them, he parted from them and was carried up into heaven. And they worshiped him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy, and were continually in the temple blessing God.
Luke 24:50-‬53 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/luk.24.50-53.ESV     
               So then the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God. And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the message by accompanying signs.]]
Mark 16:19-‬20 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mrk.16.19-20.ESV       


So let us pray for the return of our Lord in all his power and glory with all those who are his come Lord Jesus come.

Love and Peace
Dave
