This article is being written as some have asked what scriptures in the Old Testament point to Christ and how do you find them. Here I share what the Lord has shared with me, but is by no means a complete listing. I have in fact left out some scriptures related to trees and shepherds that will be in future articles. Other people will share more, but hopefully this will be a good starting point.

I found the best way to share these scriptures is by listing them with a brief explanation of the content and in some cases I highlight the keywords in the scripture that give us a hint of the future Christ (Messiah) and the church. This will be a long list and is not all inclusive of every verse in the Old Testament that points to Christ. We should note that the New Testament authors and Jesus used the word scripture 52 times in referencing the Old Testament. Other words that they used to reference the Old Testament are “the law” (or “law of Moses”), “the prophets”, “the psalms” and in some cases they referred to them together like the following:

Luke 24:44(KJV)44And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.


Here we see where Apollos preached about Christ through the scriptures:

Acts 18:28(KJV) 28For he mightily convinced the Jews, and that publicly, showing by the scriptures that Jesus was Christ.

And Paul said that Jesus was pointed to by the prophets:

Romans 1:2-3(KJV) 2(Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,)  3Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;

Jesus did as well:

Matthew 21:42(KJV) 42Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?

Jesus implies that we need to know the scriptures:

Matthew 22:29(KJV) 29Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.

And Jesus said that the scriptures of the prophets would be fulfilled:

Matthew 26:56(KJV) 56But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled.

We are to search the scriptures daily to search out the truth:

Acts 17:11(KJV) 11These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

Because all those things were written for us for our learning:

Romans 15:4(KJV) 4For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.

So here we go. I have listed a lot of Old Testament scriptures below with a brief description of each one. I also insert using “[]” what the Holy Spirit has revealed to me the understanding of certain words and phrases are. These are keys to how the New Testament teachers understood these verses and for us as well. This is by no means an exhaustive list of the Old Testament verses pointing to Christ and I leave the rest to studies for the reader.

This is about the Pharisees (possessors) and how they are cut-off and destroyed by the king (Caesar):

Zechariah 11:4-9(KJV) 4Thus saith the LORD my God; Feed the flock of the slaughter[Jews];  5Whose possessors[Sanhedrin] slay them, and hold themselves not guilty: and they that sell them[sale of the items in the temple for sacrifice rituals] say, Blessed be the LORD; for I am rich: and their own shepherds pity them not.  6For I will no more pity the inhabitants of the land, saith the LORD: but, lo, I will deliver the men every one into his neighbour’s hand, and into the hand of his king: and they shall smite the land, and out of their hand I will not deliver them [destruction of Jerusalem 70AD].  7And I will feed the flock of slaughter, even you, O poor of the flock. And I took unto me two staves; the one I called Beauty, and the other I called Bands; and I fed the flock.  8Three shepherds also I cut off in one month; and my soul lothed them, and their soul also abhorred me.  9Then said I, I will not feed you: that that dieth, let it die[the old covenant]; and that that is to be cut off, let it be cut off; and let the rest eat every one the flesh of another.

The old covenant(Beauty) ended at Christ’s death and His flock waited on Him:

Zechariah 11:10-11(KJV) 10And I took my staff, even Beauty, and cut it asunder, that I might break my covenant which I had made with all the people.  11And it was broken in that day: and so the poor[the new church] of the flock that waited upon me knew that it was the word of the LORD.

Jesus sold for 30 pieces of silver which purchased the potter’s field:

Zechariah 11:12-13(KJV) 12And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver.  13And the LORD said unto me, Cast it unto the potter[potter's field]: a goodly price that I was prised at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house[temple] of the LORD.

Future ministers that take in money, but do not help the poor will loose their ability to understand God:

Zechariah 11:15-17(KJV) 15And the LORD said unto me, Take unto thee yet the instruments of a foolish shepherd[modern day minister or priest].  16For, lo, I will raise up a shepherd in the land, which shall not visit those that be cut off, neither shall seek the young one, nor heal that that is broken, nor feed that that standeth still: but he shall eat the flesh of the fat, and tear their claws in pieces [not doing the work of Christ but living off of the body].  17Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock! the sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened.

About Jesus being captured and the sheep scattering. Then He comes back to them. Later he will refine His people:

Zechariah 13:7-9(KJV) 7Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd[Jesus], and the sheep shall be scattered[disciples]: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.  8And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.  9And I will bring the third part through the fire[baptism of Spirit and fire], and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people[the church]: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.

The return of Christ and the saints:

Zechariah 14:5(KJV) 5And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.

Deuteronomy 33:2-3(KJV) 2And he said, The LORD came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir unto them; he shined forth from mount Paran, and he came with ten thousands of saints: from his right hand went a fiery law[baptism with Holy Spirit and fire] for them.  3Yea, he loved the people[new covenant based on love]; all his saints are in thy hand: and they sat down at thy feet; every one shall receive of thy words[because of the Holy Spirit they could understand].

God is the fountain of living waters (the Holy Spirit):

Jeremiah 2:13(KJV) 13For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water[their own gods/idols].

Jeremiah 17:13(KJV) 13O LORD, the hope of Israel, all that forsake thee shall be ashamed, and they that depart from me shall be written in the earth, because they have forsaken the LORD, the fountain of living waters.

About His people:

Isaiah 56:1-8(KJV) 1Thus saith the LORD, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed.  2Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil. 3Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to the LORD, speak, saying, The LORD hath utterly separated me from his people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree.  4For thus saith the LORD unto the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant;  5Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.  6Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant;  7Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer[the new temple] for all people.  8The Lord GOD which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him.

The people of Christ live in all lands:

Jeremiah 23:3-8(KJV) 3And I will gather the remnant[people with Holy Spirit] of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase. 4And I will set up shepherds[people with the Holy Spirit] over them which shall feed them[the word of God]: and they shall fear no more[the peace of the Holy Spirit], nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking, saith the LORD. 5Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch[Jesus], and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. 6In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS. 7Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that they shall no more say, The LORD liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; 8But, The LORD liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land.

About Jesus (bridegroom) and the church (bride) and He will create a habitation for the shepherds (the church):

Jeremiah 33:10-16(KJV) 10Thus saith the LORD; Again there shall be heard in this place, which ye say shall be desolate without man and without beast, even in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, that are desolate, without man, and without inhabitant, and without beast, 11The voice of joy, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the voice of them that shall say, Praise the LORD of hosts: for the LORD is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: and of them that shall bring the sacrifice of praise into the house of the LORD. For I will cause to return the captivity of the land, as at the first, saith the LORD. 12Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Again in this place, which is desolate without man and without beast, and in all the cities thereof, shall be an habitation of shepherds causing their flocks[God's people] to lie down. 13In the cities of the mountains, in the cities of the vale, and in the cities of the south, and in the land of Benjamin, and in the places about Jerusalem, and in the cities of Judah, shall the flocks pass again under the hands of him that telleth them, saith the LORD. 14Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will perform that good thing which I have promised unto the house of Israel and to the house of Judah. 15In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch[Jesus] of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land. 16In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The LORD our righteousness.

God’s people (children of Israel and Judah) weeping and seeking God and the kingdom of God (Zion) with a perpetual covenant (baptism of water and Holy Spirit):

Jeremiah 50:4-6(KJV) 4In those days, and in that time, saith the LORD, the children of Israel shall come, they and the children of Judah together, going and weeping: they shall go, and seek the LORD their God. 5They shall ask the way to Zion[kingdom of God] with their faces thitherward, saying, Come, and let us join ourselves to the LORD in a perpetual covenant[baptism] that shall not be forgotten. 6My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds[Pharisees and modern ministers] have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill[church to church], they have forgotten their restingplace[Christ].

About Christ (ruler in Israel) coming from Bethlehem and dying (smite the judge):

Micah 5:1-2(KJV) 1Now gather thyself in troops[together], O daughter of troops[band]: he hath laid siege against us: they shall smite the judge of Israel with a rod upon the cheek. 2But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah[fruitful], though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

His people (the church) shall be given up (to die) until the church bears the new born sons of God and then shall Jesus return with them and rule all the earth:

Micah 5:3-4(KJV) 3Therefore will he give them up, until the time that she[the church] which travaileth hath brought forth: then the remnant[church] of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel. 4And he shall stand and feed in the strength of the LORD, in the majesty of the name of the LORD his God; and they shall abide[live forever]: for now shall he be great unto the ends of the earth[take over all the earth].

God’s people (remnant of Jacob) are everywhere in the world:

Micah 5:7-9(KJV) 7And the remnant[church] of Jacob shall be in the midst of many people as a dew from the LORD, as the showers upon the grass, that tarrieth not for man, nor waiteth for the sons of men. 8And the remnant of Jacob shall be among the Gentiles in the midst of many people as a lion among the beasts of the forest, as a young lion among the flocks of sheep: who, if he go through, both treadeth down, and teareth in pieces, and none can deliver. 9Thine hand shall be lifted up upon thine adversaries, and all thine enemies shall be cut off.

God makes a place for His people (shepherds, flocks, remnant):

Zephaniah 2:6-7(KJV) 6And the sea coast shall be dwellings and cottages for shepherds, and folds for flocks. 7And the coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah; they shall feed thereupon: in the houses of Ashkelon shall they lie down in the evening: for the LORD their God shall visit them, and turn away their captivity[from sin].

Of Christ riding on an ass into Jerusalem:

Zechariah 9:9-11(KJV) 9Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass. 10And I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim, and the horse from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off: and he shall speak peace unto the heathen: and his dominion shall be from sea even to sea, and from the river even to the ends of the earth. 11As for thee also, by the blood of thy covenant I have sent forth thy prisoners[disciples] out of the pit wherein is no water[they had no Holy Spirit].

The Holy Spirit to be poured out so that there will be plenty to eat (spiritually):

Zechariah 10:1(KJV) 1Ask ye of the LORD rain in the time of the latter rain; so the LORD shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field.

God visits his flock and makes them as mighty men (with the Holy Spirit) and they will fight with the sword (the word of God) and the enemies will be confused. He has mercy on his people and redeemed them (from all over the world – places of sin) and given them a place to live:

Zechariah 10:3-12(KJV) 3for the LORD of hosts hath visited his flock the house of Judah, and hath made them as his goodly horse in the battle. 4Out of him came forth the corner, out of him the nail, out of him the battle bow, out of him every oppressor together[all different kinds of people].5And they shall be as mighty men, which tread down their enemies in the mire of the streets in the battle: and they shall fight, because the LORD is with them[in Spirit], and the riders on horses shall be confounded. 6And I will strengthen the house of Judah, and I will save the house of Joseph, and I will bring them again to place them; for I have mercy upon them[forgiveness of sins]: and they shall be as though I had not cast them off: for I am the LORD their God, and will hear them. 7And they of Ephraim[another name for Israel] shall be like a mighty man, and their heart shall rejoice as through wine[because of communion]: yea, their children shall see it, and be glad; their heart shall rejoice in the LORD. 8I will hiss for them, and gather them; for I have redeemed them: and they shall increase as they have increased. 9And I will sow them among the people: and they shall remember me in far countries; and they shall live with their children, and turn again. 10I will bring them again also out of the land of Egypt[sin], and gather them out of Assyria; and I will bring them into the land of Gilead and Lebanon; and place shall not be found for them. 11And he shall pass through the sea with affliction, and shall smite the waves in the sea[peoples of the world], and all the deeps of the river shall dry up: and the pride of Assyria shall be brought down, and the sceptre of Egypt[control of sin] shall depart away. 12And I will strengthen them in the LORD; and they shall walk up and down in his name, saith the LORD.

About God’s people called into the kingdom of God (Zion) and being married to Christ being taught by pastors that he created (with his Spirit):

Jeremiah 3:14-19(KJV) 14Turn[repent - turn to God], O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto you[body of Christ]: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion[kingdom of God]: 15And I will give you pastors[disciples with Holy Spirit] according to mine heart, which shall feed[preach, teach] you with knowledge and understanding. 16And it shall come to pass, when ye be multiplied and increased in the land, in those days, saith the LORD, they shall say no more, The ark of the covenant of the LORD: neither shall it come to mind: neither shall they remember it; neither shall they visit it; neither shall that be done any more. 17At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of the LORD; and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of the LORD, to Jerusalem: neither shall they walk any more after the imagination of their evil heart[thru repentance and baptism their heart is turned to God]. 18In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel, and they shall come together out of the land of the north[Babylon - that is the world] to the land that I have given for an inheritance unto your fathers. 19But I said, How shall I put thee among the children, and give thee a pleasant land, a goodly heritage of the hosts of nations? and I said, Thou shalt call me, My father; and shalt not turn away from me.

Jesus must bear his wound (his crucifixion), his body is spoiled and broken and children gone because the pastors(Pharisees) do not seek God and the people are scattered. Then they are destroyed by the Romans (bruit – news/report – from the north country):

Jeremiah 10:19-22(KJV) 19Woe is me for my hurt! my wound is grievous: but I said, Truly this is a grief, and I must bear it. 20My tabernacle[body] is spoiled, and all my cords[heart] are broken: my children[disciples] are gone forth of me, and they are not: there is none to stretch forth my tent any more, and to set up my curtains. 21For the pastors[Pharisees] are become brutish[a waste], and have not sought the LORD: therefore they shall not prosper, and all their flocks shall be scattered. 22Behold, the noise of the bruit is come, and a great commotion out of the north country, to make the cities of Judah desolate, and a den of dragons[Jerusalem destroyed 70AD].

Job knew about Jesus (the redeemer):

Job 19:25-27(KJV) 25For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth[when Christ comes back]: 26And though after my skin worms destroy this body[after Job dies], yet in my flesh shall I see God[raised up]: 27Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.

About Christ and His people reigning and ruling in judgment:

Isaiah 32:1-4(KJV) 1Behold, a king[Jesus] shall reign in righteousness, and princes[those raised up] shall rule in judgment. 2And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land. 3And the eyes of them that see shall not be dim, and the ears of them that hear shall hearken[because of the Holy Spirit]. 4The heart also of the rash shall understand knowledge, and the tongue of the stammerers[God's servants who are not formally trained at seminary] shall be ready to speak plainly.

Jesus coming predicted and that the Pharisees would not be able to answer Him or understand Him:

Isaiah 41:27-29(KJV) 27The first shall say to Zion, Behold, behold them: and I will give to Jerusalem[the church of Christ's time] one that bringeth good tidings. 28For I beheld, and there was no man; even among them, and there was no counsellor, that, when I asked of them, could answer a word. 29Behold, they are all vanity; their works are nothing: their molten images are wind and confusion[the Pharisees].

God makes a way thru the sea(the world’s peoples) and provides the waters (His Spirit) in the wilderness:

Isaiah 43:1-21(KJV) 1But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. 2When thou passest through the waters[peoples], I will be with thee; and through the rivers[troubles], they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire[trials], thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. 3For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt[sin] for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee[he purchased our sins]. 4Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life. 5Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west; 6I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth; 7Even every one that is called by my name[Christians]: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.8Bring forth the blind people that have eyes, and the deaf that have ears[healed by the Holy Spirit and can now see the truth]. 9Let all the nations be gathered together, and let the people be assembled: who among them can declare this, and show us former things? let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified: or let them hear, and say, It is truth. 10Ye are my witnesses[by our testimonies], saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. 11I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour. 12I have declared, and have saved, and I have showed, when there was no strange god among you[because his Spirit is in us]: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God. 13Yea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let[stop] it?14Thus saith the LORD, your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; For your sake I have sent to Babylon[the world], and have brought down all their nobles[leaders], and the Chaldeans[the people of Babylon], whose cry is in the ships[movement of men]. 15I am the LORD, your Holy One, the creator of Israel, your King. 16Thus saith the LORD, which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters; 17Which bringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power; they shall lie down together, they shall not rise: they are extinct, they are quenched as tow. 18Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. 19Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness[the world], and rivers[Holy Spirit] in the desert. 20The beast of the field shall honour me, the dragons and the owls: because I give waters[Spirit] in the wilderness, and rivers[Spirit] in the desert[a place without God], to give drink to my people, my chosen[called by God]. 21This people have I formed for myself; they shall show forth[be a light, an example] my praise.

We have only one redeemer who provides us with His Spirit:

Isaiah 44:1-8(KJV) 1Yet now hear, O Jacob my servant; and Israel, whom I have chosen: 2Thus saith the LORD that made thee, and formed thee from the womb, which will help thee; Fear not, O Jacob, my servant; and thou, Jesurun, whom I have chosen. 3For I will pour water[Holy Spirit] upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring: 4And they shall spring up as among the grass, as willows by the water courses. 5One shall say, I am the LORD’S; and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob; and another shall subscribe with his hand unto the LORD, and surname himself by the name of Israel. 6Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God. 7And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I appointed the ancient people? and the things that are coming, and shall come, let them show unto them. 8Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.

Remember God and repent for He has redeemed us and laid the foundation to build our temple:

Isaiah 44:21-28(KJV) 21Remember these, O Jacob and Israel; for thou art my servant: I have formed thee; thou art my servant: O Israel, thou shalt not be forgotten of me. 22I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee[our sins are forgiven]. 23Sing, O ye heavens; for the LORD hath done it: shout, ye lower parts of the earth[meek]: break forth into singing, ye mountains, O forest, and every tree therein: for the LORD hath redeemed Jacob, and glorified himself in Israel. 24Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself; 25That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish; 26That confirmeth the word of his servant, and performeth the counsel of his messengers[disciples]; that saith to Jerusalem[the church], Thou shalt be inhabited; and to the cities of Judah, Ye shall be built, and I will raise up the decayed places thereof: 27That saith to the deep, Be dry, and I will dry up thy rivers: 28That saith of Cyrus, He is my shepherd, and shall perform all my pleasure: even saying to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be built; and to the temple[the church], Thy foundation shall be laid[Jesus].

The whole chapter of Is. 49 is about the redeemer coming to save, preserve and lift up Israel and the gentiles.

The whole chapter of Is. 54 is about the redeemer being married to Israel and her children are His servants and He has created a special place for them and established them and no one can stand against them.

The redeemer to come and put His Spirit on those that turn from transgression:

Isaiah 59:16-21(KJV) 16And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him. 17For he put on righteousness as a breastplate, and an helmet of salvation upon his head; and he put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloak. 18According to their deeds, accordingly he will repay, fury to his adversaries, recompense to his enemies; to the islands he will repay recompense. 19So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him. 20And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the LORD. 21As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and for ever.

The whole chapter of Is. 60 is about the glory of God’s people and how the whole earth will come to them and serve them and see their glory and how they move like clouds.

David knew about the future coming of Christ:

Psalms 14:7(KJV) 7    Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when the LORD bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.

Psalms 37:18-19(KJV) 18    The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.19    They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.

Jesus ascending to heaven and giving the Holy Spirit:

Psalms 68:18(KJV) 18Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity[sin and death] captive: thou hast received gifts[Holy Spirit] for men; yea, for the rebellious also, that the LORD God might dwell among them[we are the temple].

Jesus on the cross:

Psalms 69:19-36(KJV) 19Thou hast known my reproach, and my shame, and my dishonour: mine adversaries are all before thee.20Reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness: and I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none.21They gave me also gall for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.22Let their table[old covenant] become a snare before them: and that which should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap.23Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not; and make their loins continually to shake.24Pour out thine indignation upon them, and let thy wrathful anger take hold of them.25Let their habitation be desolate[Jerusalem]; and let none dwell in their tents.26For they persecute him whom thou hast smitten; and they talk to the grief of those whom thou hast wounded.27Add iniquity unto their iniquity: and let them not come into thy righteousness.28Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous.29 But I am poor and sorrowful[the repentant]: let thy salvation, O God, set me up on high.30I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.31This also shall please the LORD better than an ox or bullock that hath horns and hoofs[God would rather hear repentance than sacrifices].32The humble shall see this, and be glad: and your heart[where the Holy Spirit resides] shall live that seek God.33For the LORD heareth the poor, and despiseth not his prisoners.34Let the heaven and earth praise him, the seas, and every thing that moveth therein.35For God will save Zion, and will build the cities of Judah: that they may dwell there, and have it in possession.36The seed also of his servants shall inherit it: and they that love his name shall dwell therein.

God humbled Himself and he raises up the poor to create princes for Himself:

Psalms 113:5-9(KJV) 5Who is like unto the LORD our God, who dwelleth on high,6Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth!7He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;8That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.9He maketh the barren woman[the church before the Holy Spirit is given] to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children[God's people]. Praise ye the LORD.

God lifts up the humble and lowly to be the saints of His kingdom:

1 Samuel 2:2-10(KJV) 2There is none holy as the LORD: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God. 3Talk no more so exceeding proudly; let not arrogancy come out of your mouth: for the LORD is a God of knowledge, and by him actions are weighed. 4The bows of the mighty men are broken, and they that stumbled are girded with strength. 5They that were full have hired out themselves for bread; and they that were hungry ceased: so that the barren hath born seven; and she that hath many children is waxed feeble. 6The LORD killeth, and maketh alive: he bringeth down to the grave, and bringeth up. 7The LORD maketh poor, and maketh rich: he bringeth low, and lifteth up. 8He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the LORD’S, and he hath set the world upon them. 9He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail. 10The adversaries of the LORD shall be broken to pieces; out of heaven shall he thunder upon them: the LORD shall judge the ends of the earth; and he shall give strength unto his king, and exalt the horn of his anointed.

Jesus:

Isaiah 53:1-12(KJV) 1Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? 2For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground[Judah at time of Christ]: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. 3He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him[did not know him]; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.4Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted[thought he was evil]. 5But 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[he died for our sins]. 6All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way[we are our own gods]; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. 7He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. 8He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. 9And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.10Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin[he is a perpetual sin offering], he shall see his seed[then we are forgiven], he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand. 11He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. 12Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong[in faith]; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

Of baptism and cleanness and the Holy Spirit:

Ezekiel 36:25-32(KJV) 25Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. 26A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart[unable to understand] out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. 27And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. 28And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God. 29I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call for the corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you[in knowledge and understanding]. 30And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field, that ye shall receive no more reproach of famine among the heathen. 31Then shall ye remember your own evil ways, and your doings that were not good, and shall loathe yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations[repentance]. 32Not for your sakes do I this, saith the Lord GOD, be it known unto you: be ashamed and confounded for your own ways, O house of Israel.

Again the people of Israel will be cleansed and will have one king of them with a new covenant and his sanctuary will be in the midst of them:

Ezekiel 37:21-28(KJV) And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel[God's people] from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:  22And I will make them one nation[body of Christ] in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king[Jesus] shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all: 23Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwelling places, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them[by blood of Christ]: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God. 24And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them. 25And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children’s children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince for ever. 26Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary[temple] in the midst of them for evermore. 27My tabernacle[God will dwell in them] also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 28And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.

After two days (after Christ died – a day = 1000 years) in the 3rd day God will heal us and raise us up:

Hosea 6:1-3(KJV) 1Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. 2After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. 3Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.

People of God are shown as trees:

Isaiah 61:1-3(KJV) 1The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings[gospel of the kingdom] 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[in sin];  2To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;  3To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.

About people of your own house rising up against you(Matt. 10):

Micah 7:2-6(KJV) 2The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net. 3That they may do evil with both hands earnestly, the prince asketh[bribes], and the judge asketh for a reward[bribes]; and the great man, he uttereth his mischievous desire[back door deals]: so they wrap it up. 4The best of them is as a brier: the most upright is sharper than a thorn hedge: the day of thy watchmen[God sends in people to warn them] and thy visitation cometh; now shall be their perplexity[they can not understand what is happening]. 5Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide: keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom. 6For the son dishonoureth the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law; a man’s enemies are the men of his own house[as Jesus said about those who his people would have this problem].

God’s people rising up from obscurity with the Holy Spirit to shine light on everyone:

Isaiah 60:1-8(KJV) 1Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. 2For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. 3And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising. 4Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to thee: thy sons shall come from far, and thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side[those you teach]. 5Then thou shalt see, and flow together, and thine heart shall fear, and be enlarged[for joy]; because the abundance of the sea[many peoples] shall be converted unto thee, the forces of the Gentiles shall come unto thee. 6The multitude of camels shall cover thee, the dromedaries of Midian and Ephah; all they from Sheba shall come: they shall bring gold and incense; and they shall show forth the praises of the LORD[they heap money on you to get what you have - Holy Spirit and knowledge of God]. 7All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together unto thee, the rams of Nebaioth shall minister unto thee: they shall come up with acceptance on mine altar, and I will glorify the house of my glory. 8Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows?[after resurrection]

The joy of those called of God into His way:

Isaiah 35:1-10(KJV) 1The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose. 2It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God. 3Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees. 4Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompense; he will come and save you.5Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped[people God is calling]. 6Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert[Holy Spirit gives understanding]. 7And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes[people are fed]. 8And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness[the path of God - Matt. 3:3;Acts 18:25]; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men[disciples working for Christ], though fools[seemingly - I Cor. 4:10], shall not err therein. 9No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there [in the way]: 10And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

Quoted in Acts:

Habakkuk 1:5(KJV) 5Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvellously: for I will work a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you.

Seventy weeks (490 years) predicted about when Christ would come:

Daniel 9:24-27(KJV) 24Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. 25Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. 26And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood[Roman army], and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. 27And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week[after 3.5 days or the 3.5 years of Christ's ministry] he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease[not needed after his death], and for the overspreading of abominations[Pharisees] he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate[Jews].

Amos 9:11-15(KJV) 11In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old: 12That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name, saith the LORD that doeth this. 13Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt. 14And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards [churches], and drink the wine[communion] thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them. 15And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God.

Of the children killed in Bethlehem:

Jeremiah 31:15(KJV) 15Thus saith the LORD; A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping; Rahel weeping for her children refused to be comforted for her children, because they were not.

Quit seeking the fleshly works and come to God’s truth:

Isaiah 55:1-13(KJV) 1Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters[Holy Spirit], and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price[God's knowledge is free]. 2Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread[truth]? and your labour for that which satisfieth not[the works of this world]? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness. 3Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant[baptism] with you, even the sure mercies of David. 4Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people. 5Behold, thou shalt call a nation that thou knowest not[the church], and nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee because of the LORD thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for he hath glorified thee. 6Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near[while there is a chance]: 7Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return[repent] unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon[forgiveness of sins]. 8For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 9For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. 10For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: 11So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. 12For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. 13Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree[a person of God], and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the LORD for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.

The new heavens and new earth:

Isaiah 65:17-25(KJV) 17For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. 18But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy. 19And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying. 20There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child[in God] shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed. 21And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. 22They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands. 23They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them. 24And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear. 25The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent’s meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.

These are some of the many scriptures in the Old Testament that describe the coming of Jesus Christ the Messiah and prince of his church and body which are the believers. There are many keywords that help to find these scriptures. Some of them are: remnant, branch, tree, trees, bridegroom, bride, flock(s), sow, plow, plowman, planting, plant, vineyard, waters, rivers, fruit, pardon, rain, my name, wine, prince, desert, wilderness.

Another type of revelation that occurs in the Old Testament are examples of individual lives that are types that point to future events. There were many people in Israel that believed in God – for example there were 7000 during Elijah’s time. Yet only a few were recorded for us to read about. These are not just mere stories to show us faith or simple examples of good and evil – they point to future events. For example:

  1. Eve was a woman of unbelief whose seed served themselves and were sinners, whereas, Mary was a woman of belief whose seed were believers and served God.
  2. Adam was the father of sin and those who die, whereas, Jesus was the second Adam being the father of believers and those who live forever.
  3. Cain and Able were types of opposing religious systems  – one that did what God said and one that was self-serving.
  4. Abraham, Isaac and the sacrifice was a story that was a type of God the Father sacrificing his son.
  5. Samson holding the two pillars of the temple was a type of Jesus holding the covenants and then ultimately bringing them both to an end and this world to an end.
  6. Joseph being sold into slavery was a type of Christ being sold into the slavery of a fleshly body. Then when his time in prison was up he was brought before the ruler of the then known world (Pharaoh) and given rule over all things, just as when Jesus’ time was done here on earth, He was removed from the prison of this flesh, ascended to the throne of God and given rule over all things. While Joseph was ruling He had his eleven brothers brought to him who did not recognize him until he revealed himself to them. Similarly, Jesus was not truly known by his eleven (true believing disciples) disciples until he appeared to them after He was raised from the dead and they received the Holy Spirit making them His brothers.
  7. Moses and Aaron were a type of the two witnesses of Revelation who went before Pharaoh the leader of the world at that time, which was Egypt – a type of sin, telling him to let God’s people go. Similarly, the two witnesses of Revelation will go before the leader of this world who is Satan telling him to let God’s people go – calling all people to repent. It took many plagues on Egypt before it happened at that time, just as it will take many as is shown in Revelation before people will repent. In the end many will refuse to repent and die just as they did in Egypt. Egypt was ultimately destroyed, just as this whole world and it’s systems will be destroyed. Then God’s people will live under the kingdom of God, just as the Israelites went into the promised land.
  8. Clean and Unclean meats represent clean and unclean people.
  9. The Holy Days demonstrate God’s plan for man including sin, redemption, and eternal life.
  10. Israelites leaving Egypt was a type of God’s people leaving sin – the ways of this world. God called His people to come out of sin just as He does today. Once people know about God and choose to leave sin – the Israelites had a choice by deciding whether to put the blood on the post or not – they then accept the sacrifice and are baptized just as the Israelites were baptized in the Red Sea. After that the Israelites went into the wilderness to receive personal instruction from God. The wilderness is a type of the world, which is a harsh environment to live in and a person will not survive without God’s help. This is what it means to live by faith. That which you do by your own hands and your own strength is not of faith. Also, as God directed Israel to move forward to this place or that, they had to do it in faith. So too we are to follow the directing of the Holy Spirit each and every day. Not many survived the wilderness journey because it required faith (belief). The people clearly showed that they did not believe that God could handle the giants in the land that He promised to them and refused to go into the land. Jesus showed with the parable of the sower and the seed that many will not continue a true journey through the wilderness of today’s world. Not long after that God gave Israel the Levitical priesthood and all it’s trappings which was a form of religion. So too, today people go to church and “put in” their 15 minutes with God on Sunday every week thinking that that is somehow walking with God through the wilderness. It is not the same. Being baptized and walking with God through the wilderness is all about having a relationship with God.
  11. Joshua leading the children of Israel into the promised land. Joshua was a type of Christ and in fact his name means the same thing as Jesus’ name. Joshua was cleverly named the son of Nun. Of course Jesus was the son God and no man. Only people with the character, meekness, and humbleness of children can enter into the kingdom of God. Joshua had to lead them through the Jordan river to be baptized just like their fathers were when they were led through the Red Sea. As they enter into the land they were circumcised to show that only people with a circumcised heart can enter into the kingdom of God. The destruction of Jericho by blowing the 7 trumpets and the walls falling down matches the blowing of the 7 trumpets in Revelation and then at the 7th trumpet God’s people with Jesus come to the earth to take it, just like the Israelites rushed into Jericho to take it. Only people who repent and believe at that time like Rahab will be allowed to become a part of the children of Israel. The Israelites conquering the rest of the land of Canaan – the promised land – shows that after Jesus establishes His kingdom here on earth that it will take a little time to take over the whole earth and bring it all under His subjection.
  12. King David was a type of Christ. He was called to be king, but was chased by the king of this world at his time – Saul – who tried to kill him. So too was Jesus chased from town to town as Satan stirred up the leaders of His day to kill him. Just as David always slipped through Saul’s fingers so did Jesus slip through the Pharisees hands time after time. When David first hid from Saul God sent the lowest and basest of people to him to follow him. So too God chose those who would follow Christ who were not of the elite in Judea at the time, but were mostly uneducated fisherman and a tax collector – the most despised of the world at that time. David often would have to find food and provide for hundreds just as Jesus did and God always provided. Eventually, David and those with him were trained by their wilderness experience and were brought to rule over Israel by God. So too at a time of God’s choosing will Jesus and His followers come to rule over the earth.

Realize that Jesus came to fulfill the law and the prophets (Matt.5:17, 26:56; Mark 1:2; John 1:45; Acts 10:43; 3:18). What was written there pointed to Him, the church and future events! This information will help in your own studies to understand what came before, what is happening now, and what is to come.

In His Name,
