Understanding The Bible: The Promised Seed

To understand the Bible and Bible prophecy you first need to understand who the Bible is about.  And here’s a big hint: the who isn’t you (or me).  We’re minor characters in it.  The entire Bible was written because sin entered creation.  And because sin entered creation, a perfect God had to deal with this aberration one way or another.  The way He has chosen to deal with it ends up being a demonstration of the most important attribute of His character: faithful love.  Because of sin, all of creation is able to learn the depth of God’s love in a way that could otherwise never be known.

The who is the Promised Seed—the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.  And through faith, everyone is invited to be joined to that Seed.  To understand the prophecy of the Seed and who this Seed is, is to understand Bible prophecy and the whole story of the Bible.

And I fell at [the angel’s] feet to worship him.  But he said to me, ‘See that you do not do that!  I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus.  Worship God!  For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

Revelation 19:10

The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!  This is the One I meant when I said, ‘A Man who comes after me has surpassed me because He was before me… He must increase, but I must decrease.’ “

– John 1:29–303:30

Is Jesus Still a Man?

Where Living Begins

He made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a servant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross (Philippians 2:7-8).

Yes, Jesus is still a Man!

The Bible teaches that the immortal, invisible Second Person of the Godhead took upon Himself human flesh and blood (Hebrews 2:14). In His Incarnation, He didn’t stop being God, but humanity was added to His being. As the hymn, “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” says, Christ’s deity was “veiled inflesh.”

Immortal deity cannot die, so when Jesus died on the cross, it was His humanity that died and was buried. The same body that went into the tomb came out of the tomb! Since His deity didn’t die, what was raised from the dead on the…

Rejoice in the Resurrection of JESUS CHRIST

Happy Resurrection Day to all my brothers and sisters around the world. 💜

“But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared. And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men suddenly stood near them in dazzling clothing; and as the women were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living One among the dead? He is not here, but He has risen. Remember how He spoke to you while He was still in Galilee, saying that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.””

LUKE‬ ‭24:1-7‬ ‭

HALLELUJAH!

Today we celebrate Jesus defeating death and rising from the grave! 

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”

‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭1:3-5‬ ‭

ON the cross of Calvary

ON the cross of Calvary,
Jesus died for you and me;
There he shed his precious blood,
That from sin we might be free.
O the cleansing stream does flow,
And it washes white as snow!
It was for me that Jesus died
On the cross of Calvary.

 O what wondrous, wondrous love
Brought me down at Jesus’ feet!
O such wondrous, dying love
Asks a sacrifice complete!
Here I give myself to thee,
Soul and body, thine to be;
It was for me thy blood was shed
On the cross of Calvary.

Take me, Jesus, I am thine,
Wholly thine, for evermore;
Blessèd Jesus, thou art mine,
Dwell within for evermore;
Cleanse, O cleanse my heart from sin,
Make and keep me pure within!
It was for this thy blood was shed
On the cross of Calvary.

Clouds and darkness veiled the sky
When the Lord was crucified;
It is finished! was his cry
When he bowed his head and died.
With this cry from Calvary’s tree
All the world may now go free;
It was for this that Jesus died
On the cross of Calvary.

“My God, My God..” Who can know the depth of His agony? Of His desolation? Humiliated, jeered by vicious killers, He willingly died for His people. It is finished but it is not over. For He will return with a rod of iron and one way or another, every knee shall bow to King Jesus.
