“Don’t think that I came to destroy the law, or the prophets. I didn’t come to destroy, but to fulfill.”
Jesus came to fulfill the predictions of the prophets, who had long foretold that a Savior would one day appear. He came to fulfill the ceremonial law, by becoming the great sacrifice for sin, to which all the Old Testament offerings had ever pointed. He came to fulfill the moral law, by yielding to it a perfect obedience, which we could never have yielded – and by paying the penalty for our breaking of it with His atoning blood, which we could never have paid.
And so was fulfilled what the Lord had said through the prophet:
“Out of Egypt I called my son.”
But Jesus answered him, “Let it be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he consented.
As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, say that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away.” This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet:
“Say to Daughter Zion,
‘See, your king comes to you,
gentle and riding on a donkey,
and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.’”
Notice the reversal of divine merit! Why didn’t Jesus Christ come riding in a golden chariot with a mighty throng of soldiers? Like a Roman victory parade? It would have been vain.
It is about doing it, if the prophets prophesied it, then it is about jumping on a donkey and fulfilling that prophecy. There are other examples of Jesus Christ fulfilling the Old Testament.
Like the donkey example above, can we fulfill the Lord’s Prayer? What if we could create a proper union? What if it were possible to bring the kingdom by doing it biblically and by giving the kingdom and the political power and the national glory back to our Father of the Old Testament such as Egypt, North Africa, the Near East and Israel, and then the New Testament such as Greece, Italy, Spain, Britain then America etc? What if we could bring the kingdom on earth as it is in heaven, in chronological order of precedence and with honour and which could last forever? Amen.
“Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!”
“Hosanna in the highest heaven!”
