The full title for today’s post was supposed to be “The Passover male lamb, without blemish, slain with blood applied as protection from judgment” , but with only 75 characters for the title, it would not fit! But one thing that does fit is this – Jesus blood paid it all, and protects us from the judgment and condemnation of Hell.

His People

                                        

God shall dwell among His people –

Zech. 2:10-13 – Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion; for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith Jehovah. 11 And many nations shall join themselves to Jehovah in that day and shall be my people, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, and thou shalt know that Jehovah of hosts hath sent me unto thee. 12 And Jehovah shall inherit Judah as his portion in the holy land, and shall yet choose Jerusalem. 13 Be silent, all flesh, before Jehovah; for he is waked up out of his holy habitation.

Day 42 of 100 prophecies – “A priest forever in the order of Melchizedek”

 

the order of Melchizedek

the order of Melchizedek

  • Ps. 110:4 – The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind, “You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.”
  • Heb. 5:1-6 – Every high priest chosen from among mortals is put in charge of things pertaining to God on their behalf, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins. 2 He is able to deal gently with the ignorant and wayward, since he himself is subject to weakness; 3 and because of this he must offer sacrifice for his own sins as well as for those of the people. 4 And one does not presume to take this honor but takes it only when called by God, just as Aaron was.

5 So also Christ did not glorify himself in becoming a high priest, but was appointed by the one who said to him, “You are my Son, today I have begotten you”; 6 as he says also in another place, “You are a priest forever, according to the order of Melchizedek.”

  • Heb. 6:20 – 20 where Jesus, a forerunner on our behalf, has entered, having become a high priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.
  • 7:15-17 –  It is even more obvious when another priest arises, resembling Melchizedek, 16 one who has become a priest, not through a legal requirement concerning physical descent, but through the power of an indestructible life. 17 For it is attested of him,

“You are a priest forever, according to the order of Melchizedek.” 18 There is, on the one hand, the abrogation of an earlier commandment because it was weak and ineffectual 19 (for the law made nothing perfect); there is, on the other hand, the introduction of a better hope, through which we approach God. 20 This was confirmed with an oath; for others who became priests took their office without an oath,

Hung on a tree
  • Nations shall walk in the light of the Lord

  • Walk in the light of the Lord

           Walk in the light of the Lord

    Is. 60:1-3 – Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. 2 For darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but the Lord will arise upon you, and his glory will appear over you. 3 Nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.

     

  • Mat. 4:16 – the people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, and for those who sat in the region and shadow of death a light has dawned.”
  • Luke 2:32 – a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel.”
  • John 12:46 – I have come as light into the world so that everyone who believes in me should not remain in the darkness.

Day 39 – prophecies fulfilled by Jesus – The Redeemer to come out of Zion

  • the redeemer to come out of Zion

    The Cross of Jesus Christ

    Is. 59:16-20 – He saw that there was no one, and was appalled that there was no one to intervene; so his own arm brought him victory, and his righteousness upheld him. 17 He put on righteousness like a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation on his head; he put on garments of vengeance for clothing, and wrapped himself in fury as in a mantle. 18 According to their deeds, so will he repay; wrath to his adversaries, requital to his enemies; to the coastlands, he will render requital. 19 So those in the west shall fear the name of the Lord, and those in the east, his glory;
    for he will come like a pent-up stream that the wind of the Lord drives on.20 And he will come to Zion as Redeemer, to those in Jacob who turn from transgression, says the Lord.


  • Rom. 11:26-27 – And so all Israel will be saved; as it is written, “Out of Zion will come the Deliverer; he will banish ungodliness from Jacob.” 27 “And this is my covenant with them when I take away their sins.”
