A DOUBLE PROPHECY
Luke 24:44-48-“Then He said to them, These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me.”
Jesus opened the minds of His apostles, so that they could understand how the scriptures related to Jesus. Luke.24:44-45-Then He said to them, These are the words that I spoke to you while I was still with you. All things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me. You need to consider these words of Jesus when you read the scriptures. See how they relate to Him. When you are reading sections of the Laws...etc...you need to read them with this understanding. Jesus says: Lu.24:44-The teachings that Jesus taught His disciples, after He resurrected...that all must be fulfilled...that was written concerning Me in the Law etc..If you read the first five Old Testament Books, The Pentateuch, you will find the Law there. Jesus said: All things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law, the Law of Moses. All that was written in the prophets such as: Is.53, you can relate these to the Suffering Servant, Jesus, the Messiah. And when you read the Psalms, they speak of Him. And, all these things written of Him, must be fulfilled. Keep all these things in mind in order to see the spiritual application of the things pertaining to Jesus. What I want to share with you today is actually a continuation of last week’s Word...
When Jesus went into the synagogue and was handed the scroll of the Prophet Isaiah. Immediately your mind should be illuminated. Just as when your mind lights up when you see a cartoon about something. When reading the scripture, a light goes on in your mind, a “spiritual” lightbulb should hover over you! The scroll of the Prophet Isaiah is handed to Jesus, and..Lu. 24:44-48- should come to your mind. Right away, you have an indication of what is about to happen. It should not catch you by surprise. He reads from Isaiah, The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me...to preach the Gospel to the poor (the poor in spirit) etc...Jesus stopped in Luke 24:44-48; for, in Isaiah 61 there is an extra verse. “..To proclaim the Acceptable Year of the Lord.” When Jesus read the scriptures; and, expounded upon them, He was able to expound upon them in such an amazing way, that folks could understand! And now,they had their eyes fixed on Jesus, and anticipated on what more was to come from Jesus’ mouth.“Today,this scripture is fulfilled in your ears.” That's profound for them to hear ...
...TODAY!! Hearing Jesus say: “Today, this scripture is fulfilled in your ears,” WAS PROFOUND for them to hear! They all knew that Jesus was referring to the Prophet Isaiah's scripture. Heavy! What could He have meant by saying that? What does He mean? You don't need a first grade education to understand what Jesus just said. When Isaiah wrote this scripture in IS.61:1. It was the first two verses that Jesus read. In Luke 24:44- “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me…He has anointed Me to preach the Good News to the poor..(the poor in spirit....)” Isaiah was not thinking about the Messiah when he wrote that scripture in IS. 61; but, that this reference was pertaining to him (Isaiah), that he (Isaiah) was going to preach the Good News. That God anointed him (Isaiah) to proclaim the Good News. ‘To preach the Gospel to the poor, to heal the brokenhearted, liberty to the captives, heal the blind, set at liberty those who were oppressed...etc..” This was Isaiah's mission, as it was given to him by the Lord. What Isaiah was referring to, “to set at liberty all those who were oppressed.” Isaiah was prophesying a time in the future, when the Israelites would be held in captivity. And, when the Israelites would be held in captivity in Babylonia, then, the Israelites were to speak up and proclaim the Good News, and the Good News, will set the captives free! What happened to the Israelites in captivity? Who set them free, was it God? He had something to do with it; but, it was Pharaoh himself, who agreed to let the people go! Isaiah prophesied about the release of the prisoners who were oppressed. He prophesied about their captivity and how they were going to be let loose. Jesus takes that scripture in the temple and tells the people: “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your ears today!” The Jews knew of the prophecy of Isaiah. They already knew that the Israelites were already set free. But, these scriptures must all be fulfilled in Jesus. This scripture is in relationship to the Lord Jesus Christ. This prophetic word, although it was fulfilled, in the spiritual realm, now it makes sense to the people. How many of you actually knew that Isaiah wrote this scripture to say that the people were confused, and couldn't understand that this scripture would be fulfilled in your ears….and, that this scripture was a prophetic scripture that pointed to the prophetic scripture of the Israelites. How many of you who were not aware; and, are now aware..and, doesn't that awareness give you a better understanding of that scripture? It’s a double prophecy! One fulfilled in the natural and the other in the spiritual realm! I'll end here for now.
