That the scripture might be fulfilled.” [John 19:28]

Few words carry the weight of God’s grand design and sovereign authority like, “fulfilled.” It says that we were already told about what would happen – then it happens. Wow!

This concept alone shakes the foundations of reality. If you wonder if there is a God, then you have to grapple with this. How could God know what was going to happen ahead of time?

Say what you will about how much power a human being possesses; the idea of being able to predetermine the times, places, and affairs of humanity centuries and multiple generations before these promises are fulfilled defies all scientific, rational, and logical thinking. God’s word is being fulfilled. We can deny this, or adjust our perception of God and accept a fresh view of God.

Sceptics always want proof. Well here it is. Deal with it. How many prophecies does it take to turn the hardened heart of an atheist? How does an agnostic deny the verses of Isaiah 53? 

No wonder the scriptures tell us, “The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone.” [Psalm 118:23, then repeated in Matthew, Mark, Luke, Acts, and Peter]. And “You search the Scriptures for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me.” [John 5:39]. Also, “…but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness…” [1 Corinthians 1:23]. Enough said.

The fact of the matter is that Yeshua was placed right in front of us and we refused to acknowledge His person, His purpose, or the One who sent Him to be our firstfruits. 

We have been granted revelation knowledge of the Holy One. We now walk in the footsteps that were tread for our benefit eons ago.

The peace that accompanies a fulfilled life transcends all natural comprehension. Why? Because this peace is far beyond the natural, It’s supernatural. Peace comes because we have encountered the Holy One and, by His Grace, we are fulfilling His purposes in our lives.

This knowledge is too wonderful to fully grasp. Gratitude is the only appropriate response.

May our Father’s Presence be with you as He fulfills every promise He has made for you
