Hi Moving on

    You ascended on high,  leading a host of captives in your train and receiving gifts among men, even among the rebellious, that the Lord God may dwell there.
Psalm 68:18 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/psa.68.18.ESV

   The Lord says to my Lord:  ?Sit at my right hand,  until I make your enemies your footstool.?
Psalm 110:1 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/psa.110.1.ESV           


The captives mentioned here are all those who have been baptised into his name all those who are his body the gifts are the love which is given to him from those who are his body.
Our Lord will remain at the right hand of the Father until his enemies are overcome let us pray that this will be soon.
We are given conformation in the NT

       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.
Mark 16:19 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mrk.16.19.ESV

 ??The Lord said to my Lord, ?Sit at my right hand,  until I put your enemies under your feet???
Matthew 22:44 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.22.44.ESV       
   

Love and Peace

Hi
Moving on to one of the greatest prophecies in the OT.

      Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken,  smitten by God, and afflicted.   But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,  and with his wounds we are healed.   All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned?every one?to his own way;  and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.  He was oppressed, and he was afflicted,  yet he opened not his mouth;  like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent, so he opened not his mouth.  By oppression and judgment he was taken away; and as for his generation, who considered that he was cut off out of the land of the living, stricken for the transgression of my people?  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.  Yet it was the will of the Lord to crush him; he has put him to grief;  when his soul makes an offering for guilt, he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days;  the will of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.  Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see and be satisfied; by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant,  make many to be accounted righteous,  and he shall bear their iniquities.   Therefore I will divide him a portion with the many,  and he shall divide the spoil with the strong, because he poured out his soul to death and was numbered with the transgressors;  yet he bore the sin of many, and makes intercession for the transgressors.
Isaiah 53:4-‬12 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/isa.53.4-12.ESV           


We have numerous eye witnesses to support this prophecy that it was written hundreds of years before our Lord was crucified makes it even more remarkable that our Lord went through such torture  for the sake of us sinners is even more remarkable.

St Paul tells us why.

   For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person?though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die? but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 5:6-‬8 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/rom.5.6-8.ESV         


What fantastic love

Love and peace
Dave

Hi
Thought it would be interesting to look at some of our Lords prophecies.

    35  Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away     

We can certainly see that this prophecy has come true his words have gone around the world the bible is the most sold book the world has ever seen and continues to be.
Nobodies words has influenced this world as much as his they are the words that give life even life eternal.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi

   And Jesus answered them, ?See that no one leads you astray.  For many will come in my name, saying, ?I am the Christ,? and they will lead many astray.
Matthew 24:4-‬5 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.24.4-5.ESV       


Is this a reference to all the different denominations and offshoots of Christianity that have cropped up over the years when men have gone beyond the words we have in scripture and have come with their own theology and doctoring.
So do we need to get back to what the scriptures actually says and not what men say it says.

Love and Peace

Hi
Next our Lord is prophicing about end time events.

  And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet.
Matthew 24:6 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.24.6.ESV         


I think this can well describe the times we live in I know there has been wars all through history  but not on the scale of the last few hundred years  and two world wars and all the unrest we have in the world to day to me the above prophecy  seams to cover it pretty well but the end is yet to come but let's not speculate but see the prophesy as a warning and turn to the Lord.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi

    For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places.  All these are but the beginning of the birth pains.
Matthew 24:7-‬8 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.24.7-8.ESV         


Again how this describes the world today where ever we look to day we see these things happening but this is only the beginning but this is only the beginning of birth pains.
Who is it that will be born I say the man in Gods image which is Christ at his second comming and he is united with his bride and they become one and the man in the image of God will be born.

I think we need to think of the world we live in with the Internet and mobil phones we know everything that's going on in the world if we go back a few hundred years ordenary people  new very little or nothing at all about what was going on in the world.
So its only now we can see these things happening all over the world.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi

   ?Then   they will deliver you up   to tribulation and   put you to death, and   you will be hated by all nations for my name?s sake.  And then many will fall away  and betray one another and hate one another.
Matthew 24:9-‬10 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.24.9-10.ESV       


There are many countries in the world were Christianity is not welcome and the powers that be try to stamp it out by any means possible even the official view of so called Christian countries are not very supportive.
And because of all this Christianity will be hated by many and will believe the media and not God's word but what ever happens we must believe and stand up for that belief.

Love and Peace
Dave

    And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray.  And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold.
Matthew 24:11-‬12 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.24.11-12.ESV       


Again very true and accurate words from our Lord I think false prophets can be referring to all the different denominations saying different things we need to get back to what the bible says not what men say.
That lawlessness will increase goes without saying everywhere we look in the world and we can look everywhere in the world we can see this prophecy fulfilled.
And that love for our fellow man is growing cold is also seen especially on the media its all about self although I believe there are many out there who follow the command to Love thy neighbour and let us all continue to love our fellow man.

Love and Peace
Dave
