Prophecies Not Yet

Daily Devotions:
by Christina Farris

Matthew 26:59-68 KJV
59 Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought false witness against Jesus, to put him to death;
60 But found none: yea, though many false witnesses came, yet found they none. At the last came two false witnesses,
61 And said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days.
62 And the high priest arose, and said unto him, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?
63 But Jesus held his peace. And the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God.
64 Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
65 Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy.
66 What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of death.
67 Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote him with the palms of their hands,
68 Saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he that smote thee?

Why is there confusion among the Gospels why Christ went to the cross. Why is there discrepancy in the Gospels concern the reason Christ went to the cross. It maybe a little more simple then you think. No one had a piece of paper and a pen handy when it was happening. What is recorded in the four Gospels is the memory of these events in time by Three Apostles and one doctor. Peter is the only one seen at the trial of Jesus, but even so a cousin of Peter was seen present in Mark. Peter walks in water only in one Gospel, but the story of the boats are recorded in all four gospels with description of where and other events tell time frame of events. The fishermen still working at their trade when Christ was not preaching or was preaching from the boat. We can imagine for instant that any of us will remember the whole account of a story unless repeated over and over to us the same way. Neither can two eye witness testify the same way, but the story maybe true. Someone might say two cars hit each other and another will say the red car hit a blue car. One leaving out details of the colors and the other being more specific of who hit who. Why is this, because the way we process things and our location to the event effects our telling of the event. If I sit in the back pew of a church, I may see all the craziness between the backdoor and the pulpit. From who went to outside, to who said Amen. Yet the person on the front row will tell part of the sermon, and about the new hat a choir member wore, and how the string on the harp broke, as the player strum the chores. How the flutest forgot her notes and the pianoist played perfectly and if there was a mistake it was unnoticable. However, the choir loft seen it and heard it all.

The record unfolding of the the cross is seen in four Gospels. Mark tells how Jesus landed up going to the cross, Matthew Account tells only what the Pharisees seem to think was blasphemist that Jesus said. Actual verse comes from Daniel 7:13, and Psalms 110:1 concerning the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power and coming in the clouds of heaven, in verse 64 in Matthew 26. This one vers in Matthew was enough to cause the pharisees to rent/tear his clothing. It was enough to show extreme emotion because he believe Jesus blasphyme.Yet to destroy the temple and rebuilld in three days did not have quite the same effect as the words of Christ directly to the Pharisees of them seeing the Son of man coming in a cloud sitting on the right hand of the Father.

No matter the reason for the anger, it shows that the Pharisees were looking or anything they could use to kill Jesus, but nothing was found, so false witnesses and accusers were necessary.Prophecy was not going to be used as prophecy, but accusation of blasphme. The Pharisees not believing the prophecies of old. Eyes being blinded to the truth of what was yet to be.

How many things has God spoken to the individual heart of things to come, and yet the prophecy has not passed or yet to come. How many prophecies do we today wait for that is only Bibilical like the second coming of Jesus. Yet if anyone spoke about these things prophetically would the church leaders believe it to be or coming to be in the future.

The confusion of prophecy yet to be, and yet who believes, and who believes prophecy as it comes to pass. Here Jesus is on the way to his cross, and who would believe the Lamb of God was fixing to be lead to the slaughter. Who would believe the beating he take, who would believe the cross he would carry.

Matthew carries not all the account of Mark, but Matthew declares the unbelief the Roman government as well as the religious leaders concerning Christ resurrection, despite the evidence before them. It is easier to say it never happened then to take the responsibility of crucifying the Savior of the world. It easier to never bow to Jesus, then to humble come to Jesus. Yet when once a person comes to Jesus they wonder why did I wait so long, because Jesus is the only one that can set you free from sin and guilt of sin. Let us not deny the power of God. Let us press on knowing we have advocator name Jesus, one who died for our sins, forgave us on the cross and speaks prophesy to our ears, though our eyes can not fully grasp it at times.

The leaders began to hit him in the face and blind folding him asking who hit you? Waiting for him to prophesy to them about who was hitting/smoting him. Mocking his words in a form of blasphme, because they were God's Holy Word. Let us not mock God's word of prophesy, but speak it in truth and love the best we understand it and hear it.That all may know the truth of his word that is prophetic as it things come to pass.

Dear Heavenly Father, help us in our unbelief that we can come to you about all things in our life, including all our sins and they be forgiven. Help us this day to lay our sin at your Son's feet, knowing he died for us, so that we could have hope for eternity. In Jesus precious name, Amen.

Continual Scripture Study: Daniel 7:13 KJV
13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.

Psalm 110:1-3 KJV
1 A Psalm of David. The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
2 The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.
3 Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth.
