Prophecies Fulfilled By Y’shua (Jesus)

The day I realized every 1st century New Testament writer, was referring to the TaNaK, (a Hebrew acronym meaning Torah, Prophets, Writings), was the day I stopped calling it The Old Testament.  The word “Old” insinuates antiquated, but The New Testament writers referred to these Scriptures as The Living, Active Word of God;

For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it pierces even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow. It is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12Psalm 149:6.

Y’shua is The Word, He is The Torah, The Way of Truth and Life.  When God’s Word became flesh He revealed a Spiritual mystery;  These Scriptures testify About Him,

Prophecies written about Y’shua will match up to the plum line of His Word;

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”  John 1:1

You pore over the Scriptures because you presume that by them you possess eternal life. These are the very words that testify about Me,”  John 5:39

“And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, He (Y’shua) explained to them what was written in all the Scriptures about Himself.”  Luke 24:27

Jesus said to them, “These are the words I spoke to you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about Me in the Law (Torah) of Moses the Prophets, the and Psalms. Then He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures,” Luke 24:44, 45.

Bereans

“Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so” Acts 17:11

Who were these noble-minded people of Berea?  From verse 10 we know they were Judean and met in a Synagogue in Berea.  Berea was located in South Western Macedonia, South of Thessaloniki and North of Kosovo, between Albania and Bulgaria.

What else do we know just from reading verses 10 and 11 of Acts 17?  The Bereans were not like the Thessalonians.

The Bereans examined the Scriptures daily to check to see if any new teaching was true or false.  They received Paul’s message of the Good News of God’s Kingdom eagerly.  Unlike the Thessalonians they were not fearful of false prophets because they knew how to check for Truth by holding it up to the plum line of YHVH’s unchanging Truth.

The Scriptures consisted of the Torah and the Prophets, those who spoke the Words of YHVH.

These were the Scriptures Y’shuah referred to as testifying about Him, John 5:39.

“And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.”  Luke 24:27

You know we still have access to the same plum line of Truth that the Berean’s examined daily.  We do not need to fear being deceived by any new teachings, doctrines or opinions that don’t align with the Light of Truth.

“even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel (Good News) contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed” Galatians 1:8

“The Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles (all peoples) by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, “ALL THE NATIONS WILL BE BLESSED IN YOU.” Galatians 3:8

Still today we see how many, like the Thessalonians, are not open to searching out what is True.  To be close minded and opinionated comes from fear.   Whether we fear being deceived or we are just too proud to reassess some of our comfortable traditions and customs, fear shows itself in every indignant, prideful and hate-filled reaction.

“He leads the humble in justice, And He teaches the humble His way.”  Psalm 25:9

Are you confused, angry or just plain fed up with all the religious divisions in the world?  Truth tells us God is One, so there cannot be any division in Truth.  Yet I was being blown around like a wave in the sea by every influential teacher I heard.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding.    Proverbs 3:5

For True Peace of Mind, Seek Truth from your Creator, do not put your trust in any human understanding. Psalm 118:8Isaiah 2:22

We are only teachable when we are humble, with a child-like attitude.  As adults we have a hard time letting go of the teachings, doctrines, traditions and human opinions we have grown accustomed to.  It requires great courage and trust to be Set apart.

The Way of Truth is Counter-Cultural.  The way of the world is not the way of Truth.  Following the Way of Truth is the difficult Way.

Truth is not an opinion to argue or defend, that would be like arguing gravity.  It requires only that someone hold up a Plum bob to show reality.  The Truth has been revealed to all mankind, like a light in the darkness, it always was, is and always will be Truth.

Truth seekers have no concern about which person to follow or whom to ask about Truth because YHVH has put His Spirit of Truth in each one of us, young and old..  He is the One we ask, the One we teach our children to seek diligently and the only One we trust.  We are no longer dead, (separated) spiritually because of our iniquity, check and see.   Jeremiah 31:33,34.

“AND THEIR INIQUITIES AND THEIR OFFENSIVE DEEDS I WILL REMEMBER NO MORE.”  Hebrews 10:17

“HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THOSE WHO BRING GOOD NEWS OF GOOD THINGS!” Isaiah 52:7Romans 10:15Isaiah 61:1Luke 4:18

.Y’shuah did not come to change one letter of the Torah and the Prophets but to fulfill what was prophesied and foreshadowed, in the Truth, about Himself, Matthew 5:17
