Luke 24:25-27 Then He said to them, “O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into His glory?” And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.
As I was doing my morning reading of the word, it happened that I was to read Psalm 22. The very 1st verse struck me like a hammer, what was it that Yeshua said on the cross just before He died? He stated the very first words of Psalm 22, “My God, My God, Why have you forsaken Me?” Did He say this because He was beginning to doubt what He was in the middle of accomplishing for the human race, or was He pointing to the words of King David and Psalm 22? This Psalm which begins with these very words, are giving a complete description of exactly what was happening to Him at that very moment. It was almost a cry to the people standing there to look at the verification of what is happening here; this Psalm and all the other things that have been written of Me are your verification of who I am. In other words, I AM who I say I AM, the most High God in your midst accomplishing everything I have told my prophets to write about Me. If you will read the Word, you will see Me everywhere.
And then when He broke bread with them on this Emmaus road journey, their eyes were opened and they rushed back to Jerusalem to inform the other disciples what He had told them and I am sure, they expounded all that Moses and the prophets had written about Him. From that point on, there was no doubt in any mind, He was the long awaited for Messiah and they knew they had to tell the people how they had actually fulfilled the scriptures in sending Him to death on the cross.
So the day is coming when the Jewish people will see the one they have pierced and mourn for Him as an only son, as it says in Zechariah 12, what an awesome day that will be. Yes, life from death, the eyes of all Israel will be finally opened. This will be the fulfillment of prophetic scripture. Now, the Messiah can return in Glory.
