10 Bible Prophecies/Promises That Were Fulfilled In Christ Jesus
One thing a lot of Christians seek is for God to fulfill His promise in their lives. Some others read prophecies in Isaiah, Jeremiah and other prophetic books but can't distinguish the ones that have been fulfilled from the ones we are still expecting. So today I will begin to introduce you to 10 of these Bible prophecies/promises that Christ Jesus fulfilled already as recorded in the scriptures. Mind you some of them weren't made to Christians but actually to Israel but like was Hebrews 11:40 which says God having provided some better things for us. So if we have better things, then the promise to Israel should be the least to expect.
The aim of this article in a nutshell is to show you what should be your present hour experience so you don't have to cry and beg God for them but live in them. So I will begin with 5 today because they will contain lots of scriptures and will give the remaining 5 in the next article. 1. THE PROMISE OF ETERNAL LIFE Promise: Titus 1:2 “In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began” Proof it has been done: John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” So by believing in Jesus, the promise of eternal life that God made before the world began is credited to your account. That's something to shout out. 2. THE PROPHECY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT Promise: Joel 2:28 “And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions” Proof it has been done: Acts 2:16-17. 16 says “But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel”; 17 says “And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams” This was on the day of Pentecost, that's when the Holy Spirit came to begin His ministry on earth and He began with the disciples in the upper room. You can read the whole story from verse 1 to get the full context. Peter told the people outside celebrating Pentecost that the Holy Spirit had finally come to begin His ministry and 3000 people were saved that day. That's what the Holy Spirit can do with you. 3. THE PROMISE OF PECULIAR TREASURE Promise: Exodus 19:5-6. 5 says “Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine”: Proof it has been done: 1 Peter 2:9 “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light”: You are special to God! 4. THE PROMISE OF BEING A KINGDOM OF PRIEST Promise: Exodus 19:6 “And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.” Proof it has been done: Read 1 Peter 2:9 again, notice it also said you are a royal priesthood which is a kingdom of priests. Also Revelation 1:6 “And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” A kingdom of priest doesn't mean a territory were there are priest but that these people are both kings and priest like Revelation 1:6 said. Do you know you are a king? Ecclesiastes 1:6 says were the word of a king is, there is power. Your words carry power. 5. THE PROMISE OF A HOLY NATION Promise: Read Exodus 19:6 again, notice it says you will be a holy nation. Proof it has been done: Read 1 Peter 2:9 again, notice it says you are a holy nation. Also Hebrews 3:1 “Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus”; You are now sanctified, Holy to God. It's your present hour reality now. No wonder Paul told the Corinthian church in 1 Corinthians 1:2 that they were called to be saints, that means called to be holy. Hallelujah! We will round this up in the next article but take time to feast on this before then.
