CHRIST JESUS FORETOLD IN THE PSALMS AND FULFILLED IN THE NEW TESTAMENT

(F.Y.I. You will see the name Yahweh throughout the passages below.  Yahweh is a name for God. I love how it feels when I say Yahweh.  My lips go into a smile.) 

THE MESSIAH WILL BE GOD’S SON (JESUS)

Psalm 2:7 (WEB)  I will tell of the decree: Yahweh the Lord said to Me, “You are My Son. Today I have become Your Father.” (fulfilled in Hebrews 1:5-6)

HE (JESUS) WILL RISE FROM THE DEAD

Psalm 16:8-10 (WEB) I have set Yahweh always before Me.  Because He is at My right hand, I shall not be moved.  Therefore My heart is glad, and My tongue rejoices.  My body shall also dwell in safety.  10 For You will not leave My soul in Sheol, neither will You allow Your holy One to see corruption. (fulfilled in Luke 24:5-7)

HE (JESUS) WILL EXPERIENCE AGONY ON THE CROSS

Psalm 22:1-21 (WEB)  1 My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?  Why are You so far from helping Me, and from the words of My groaning?  My God, I cry in the daytime, but You don’t answer; in the night season, and am not silent. But You are holy, You who inhabit the praises of Israel.   Our fathers trusted in You.  They trusted, and You delivered them.  They cried to You, and were delivered.  They trusted in You, and were not disappointed.  But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised by the people.  All those who see Me mock Me.  They insult Me with their lips. They shake their heads, saying,  8 “He trusts in Yahweh.  Let Him deliver Him.  Let Him rescue Him, since He delights in Him.”  But you brought Me out of the womb.  You made Me trust while at My mother’s breasts.  10 I was thrown on You from My mother’s womb.  You are My God since My mother bore Me.  11 Don’t be far from Me, for trouble is near.  For there is no one to help.  12 Many bulls have surrounded Me.  Strong bulls of Bashan have encircled Me.  13 They open their mouths wide against Me, lions tearing prey and roaring.  14 I am poured out like water.  All My bones are out of joint.  My heart is like wax.  It is melted within Me.  15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd.  My tongue sticks to the roof of My mouth.  You have brought Me into the dust of death.  16 For dogs have surrounded Me.  A company of evildoers have enclosed Me.  They have pierced My hands and feet.  17 I can count all of My bones.  They look and stare at Me.  18 They divide My garments among them.  They cast lots for My clothing.  19 But don’t be far off, Yahweh.  You are My help. Hurry to help Me!  20 Deliver My soul from the sword,  My precious life from the power of the dog.  21 Save Me from the lion’s mouth!  Yes, You have rescued Me from the horns of the wild oxen. (fulfilled in Matthew 26 -27)
