10 Bible Prophecies/Promises That Were Fulfilled In Christ Jesus: Part 2
Today, we would be concluding on this amazing piece. If you haven't read the part 1, you can click here. Let's get to it straightaway!
6. THE ABRAHAMIC PROMISE
Promise: Genesis 12:1-3 “Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:
2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”
Also Genesis 17:2-7
Proof it has been done: Galatians 3:16-29. Verse 16 “Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.
Verses 29, "And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.”
Now because we are in Christ, we became the inheritors of all the blessings God made to Abraham. Isn't that awesome? To think that anyone that treats you well will be treated well and the ones that don't treat to you well, you have to pray like Jesus, "Father forgive them" because they're sure in for it.
7. THE PROMISE OF AUTHORITY
Promise: Deuteronomy 28:13 “And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them”:
Proof it has been done: Ephesians 2:6 “And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus”:
Wow, if you are seated in heavenly places, that means you are the head already. You don't need to cry to God to make you the head, your seat is in heaven, any earthly king or authority will have to bow to you.
8. THE PROMISE OF RICHES
Promise: Isaiah 1:19 (TLB) “If you will only let me help you, if you will only obey, then I will make you rich!”
Proof it has been done: 2 Corinthians 8:9 “For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.”
He offered the invitation and fulfilled it in Christ. So if you have Christ, you have accepted his offer and He has made you rich.
9. THE ISAIAH 61 PROPHESY
Prophecy: You guessed right Isaiah 61:1-2 “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; He hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
Verse 2 "To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn”;
Proof it has done: Luke 4:17-21 “And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written.
In verses 18, The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.”
I love Jesus, He left no room for doubt and like 1 John 4:17 which says ...because as He is, so are we in this world. We too have been anointed to heal the brokenhearted, set people free. Hallelujah.
10. THE PROPHESY OF HEALING AND HEALTH
Prophecy: Isaiah 53:5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with His stripes we are healed.
Proof it's been done: 1 Peter 2:24 “Who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.”
Notice how the tenses changed from present in Isaiah to past in 1 Peter. Also, I purposely left this last because this prophecy wasn't made to Christians but to the Jews but like I said in the first post, He has reserved better things for us and the state better than healing is divine health, where you don't even have to be sick to require healing.
I hope you enjoyed this thorough expose. Mind you the list hasn't ended and if you have discovered one yourself, please leave a comment so the world can learn as well.
