"But all this was done that the Scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled." - Matthew 26 V56
"Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into His glory?" - Luke 24 V26
At the time of Jesus, the people were expecting Him to restore the kingdom and the nation of Israel. But God had a bigger plan. Christ came so He could restore the whole world and reconcile man with God by His death on the cross. Just as the prophets prophesied, Jesus was born of a virgin, He lived a sinless life, and He died and rose again from the dead. There is one more prophecy about the return of Jesus, first for His bride (the Church), and then to restore His kingdom and to judge the world. The Bible teaches those who believe in Jesus as their Saviour will live with Him forever. Praise the Lord!
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
