Fulfillment of Old Testament Prophecy

In his personal life, Jesus embodies fulfillment of the Old Testament in his actions.

Luke 24.27

Beginning with Moses and all the prophets, He interpreted to them the things about himself in all the scriptures.

Mark 14.49

Let the scriptures be fulfilled.

Is this man crazy, a complete lunatic? David, Solomon, Elijah, Elisha, Isaiah, Jonah, Israel itself, all of these are gathering themselves in His actions! Jesus is Himself God-manifest. Moreover, this presence of God in Jesus effaces the boundaries of space and time:

John 1: 1

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Eternity is now.  God’s will is being perfectly done in me, Jesus.  David himself called me Lord. You can do it, too, bring about God’s kingdom. Deuteronomy 6.5 is fulfilled.

Mark 12.30, 31

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength…love your neighbor as yourself. The world was created for you; possess it now.

Daniel 9:22 I have now come out to give you wisdom and understanding… I have come to declare it, for you are greatly beloved.  So consider the word and understand the vision.

Father in heaven, Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done.

Matthew 4:17

Repent for the kingdom of God has come.

Matthew 10:23 (Jesus to His disciples)

You will not have gone through all the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes.

Mark 9:1

There are some standing (sitting) here who will not taste death until they see that the kingdom of God has come with power.

Luke 21:31

You know that the kingdom is near.

Matthew 24:34

Truly, I tell you, this generation will not pass away until all these things have taken place.

This generation will see the kingdom of God. You’re the remnant, the salt of the earth; preserve the fulfillment, God’s kingdom come. Live in the kingdom!

Luke 11:20

If it is by the finger of God that I cast out demons, then the kingdom of God has come to you.

Luke 17:21 (Jesus is asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom is coming)

In fact, the kingdom of God is among you.

John 5.24

Anyone who hears my words and believes… has passed from death to life.

Mark 4:11

To you has been given the secret of the kingdom of God.

Mark 3.35

Whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother.

Our Father in heaven,

Hallowed be Thy name,

Thy kingdom come.

See Thy Kingdom Come.
