    Messianic Prophecy: False Witness

    Messianic Prophecy: False Witness

    Prophecy:

    False witnesses step forward; they ask me strange questions for which I have no answers. (Psalm 35:11 Voice)

    Fulfillment:

    There were plenty of people willing to get up and accuse Jesus falsely, distorting what Jesus had said or done. (Mark 14:56 Voice)

    Thought:

    David may not have had the answers to the questions asked by his enemies, but Jesus would choose not to address the false accusations at all. There was nothing to say against the false witness. Many times we make the mistake of saying too much. Distorting the truth for our own thoughts. Take a lesson from Jesus and learn to keep quiet. Quiet and listening for the truth. Amen.

    Messianic Prophecy: Silent

    Messianic Prophecy: Silent

    Prophecy:

    And in the face of such oppression and suffering--silence. Not a word of protest, not a finger raised to stop it. Like a sheep to a shearing, like a lamb to be slaughtered, he went--oh so quietly, oh so willingly. (Isaiah 53:7 Voice)

    Fulfillment:

    Then Pilate said to Him, "Do you not hear all this evidence that is brought against you?"; but He still refused to answer one word, to the Governor's great astonishment. (Matthew 27:13-14 NEB)

    Thought:

    Amazingly Jesus said nothing in His defense; just maybe He did so because He was taking our place of punishment. So in saying nothing, He said everything! Amen.

    Messianic Prophecy: Gambling for Clothing

    Messianic Prophecy: Gambling for Clothing

    Prophecy:

    They make a game out of dividing my clothes among themselves; they cast lots for the clothes on my back.
    (Psalm 22:18 Voice)

    Fulfillment:

    [One soldier said to the others:] "Don't tear it. Let's cast lots, and the winner will take the whole thing."
    (John 19:24 Voice)

    Thought:

    In David's time, as well as in Jesus', nakedness indicated poverty and servitude. God's greatest king of Israel and His only Son both needed to experience the worst of humanity before they could unite Israel and save humanity, respectively. Amen.

    Messianic Prophecy: Mocked

    Messianic Prophecy: Mocked

    Prophecy:

    Everyone who sees me laughs at me; they whisper to one another I'm a loser; they sneer and mock me, saying, "He relies on the Eternal; let the Eternal rescue him." (Psalm 22:7-8 Voice)

    Fulfillment:

    The people stood looking on, and their rulers jeered at him: "He saved others: now let him save himself, if this is God's Messiah, his Chosen." The soldiers joined in the mockery and came forward offering Him their sour wine. "If you are the King of the Jews," they said, "save yourself." (Luke 23:35-37 NEB)

    Thought:

    Reliance on God is no laughing matter. David would find that God would crush his taunting enemies in battle. Jesus overlooked the rude remarks and chose to save His enemies from the same death they were about to inflict upon Him. Amen.

    Messianic Prophecy: Thirsty

    Messianic Prophecy: Thirsty

    Prophecy:

    I am weary of howling; my throat is scratched dry. (Psalm 69:3 Voice)

    Fulfillment:

    Jesus knew now that His work had been accomplished, and the Hebrew Scriptures were fulfilled. He said, "It is finished." (John 19:28 Voice)

    Thought:

    The howling from the pain became excruciating. On the cross, Jesus howled and howled as the judgment upon sin was carried out upon Him. Jesus' thirst points towards our own thirst for righteousness. His is the righteousness we seek. The righteousness offered for the sins of the world. Amen.

    Messianic Prophecy: Sour Wine

    Messianic Prophecy: Sour Wine

    Prophecy:

    Even more, they gave me poison for my food and offered me only sour vinegar to drink. (Psalm 69:21)

    Fulfillment:

    A jar of sour wine had been left there, so they took a hyssop branch with a sponge soaked in the vinegar and put it to His mouth. (John 19:29)

    Thought:

    The thirst got to Jesus. He asked for a drink. At this point, any drink would do. As long as it was liquid, that's all that mattered. Something to quench the dreadful dryness in His mouth. Even the sour wine would be welcomed. A momentary bit of comfort to bring about eternal comfort for those who follow Him. Amen.
