Countdown to Liftoff – Day 21


“He said to them, ‘This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms.’ Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures.” Luke 24:44-45

There are over 300 prophecies about Jesus in the Old Testament.
They were written between 500 and 1000 years before Jesus was born.
The mathematical chances that any one person could fulfill all of them is
one in a
trillion,
trillion,
trillion,
trillion,
trillion,
trillion,
trillion,
trillion,
trillion,
trillion,
trillion,
trillion,
trillion!
And Jesus had to fulfill every single one, or He was not the Messiah at all!

The probability that someone could fulfill just eight of these prophecies is one in 100,000,000,000,000,000!* 

I like those odds.

The Old Testament is all about Jesus.
Like the disciples, we often need help understanding the Scriptures.
Oh, how He delights in giving us insight.

Theologian Benjamin Warfield said,
“The Old Testament is like a richly furnished but dimly lit room.
In the New Testament nothing is added but light.”

Come, let Your Light shine in.
