JOHN 5:39

Today we’ll talk for a little while about some of the O.T. prophecies to do with the promised Messiah, and then we’ll read the N.T. scriptures to do with them being fulfilled.

Listen as I read today’s text found in John 5: 39- Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

But before we began to read the O.T. prophecies to do with the promised Messiah, and then reading the N.T. scriptures to do with them being fulfilled, I want to point out a passage in Rev. 11: that will bless your heart.

If there may be any skeptics that might be listening I want you especially to listen, brothers and sisters be sure you mark your bible.

The reason I want you to hear this scripture in Rev. 11: 3-9 is to show us that the writers of the Bible, as they were pinning down scripture as the Holy Spirit directed them to pin it down, did not understand what much of it meant, or how it could possible come to pass.

Listen as I read Rev. 11: 3-9 3And I will give power unto my two witnesses,** and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days,** clothed in sackcloth. 4These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. 5And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.

6These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: *{1st kings 17:} and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.** {Egypt}

7And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit **shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.

8And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.**

9And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see **their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.

Notice; John said that they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see **their dead bodies—notice “shall see” their dead bodies—

Realize; that John did not have a clue to do about Satellites or Television, and yet he wrote down exactly what he was told to.

I’m sure that down through the ages as people have read these verses that they must have wondered how this Prophecy could ever be fulfilled. ***

Today you and I can completely understand how this is going to take place, television has not been around all that long, I can remember as a boy when T.V, first come out, and as people begin to buy them was visited often just so the folks not yet with a T.V. would come to watch it. I recall some of the men folks would gather to watch “Wednesday night” wrestling.

But today most people have televisions, some time more than one, it has become to us today as not a big deal because we’ve become used to them.
