The next prophecies deal with Jesus being the descendents of certain men. Before I begin I ask you to find a Bible and follow along. I’m am just telling you the prophecies but the stories that go with them help you understand the prophecies better. The next prophecy comes from Genesis 9:26-27 which is Noah saying that Canaan will be cursed and the descendents of Shem and Japheth will rule over those of Canaan. Noah says, “Blessed be the Lord, the God of Shem. May Canaan be the slave of Shem. May God extend the territory of Japheth, may Japheth live in the tents of Shem, and may Canaan be his slave.” Basically Noah is saying that the God of Shem will be the Son of Shem. Which he means the Messiah will be the son of Shem. To prove Jesus was a descendent of Shem we look at Luke 3:36. From Luke 3:21 to 3:38 we are given a genealogy of Jesus in the bible. Luke 3:36 says, “son of Cainan, son of Arphaxed, son of Shem.” Here it is proven Jesus fulfills one more prophecy of being the Messiah.
The next prophecy comes from Genesis 12:3. In this section God is speaking to Abraham of his descendants. God says,”I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” This last Italizied part is where the prophecy comes from. God says all the people of the earth will be blessed through one of his descendents. For the proof that Jesus did this we look at Acts 3:25-26. Here Peter speaks to a crowd pursuading them that Jesus is the Christ. He states, “God said to Abraham, ‘Through your offspring all peoples on earth will be blessed.’ When God raised up his servant (Jesus), he sent him first to you to bless you by turning each of you from your wicked ways.” Here it shows Jesus, who was a descendent of Abraham, blessed the people before he ascended into heaven. Therefore Jesus fulfilled yet another Old Testament prophecy.
Please I am begging you, if you still do not believe in Jesus as the one Savior of mankind, keep reading my post and ask God to open your heart to the truth. I urge you to consider the truth that Jesus is the Messiah. If you come to this truth you will live forever with God in heaven. Please do not delay for you do not know when your time on this world will end.
Believers and none believers please pray with me. God I wish to have a deep and personal relationship with you. My sin keeps me from this relationship. Please lead me to a deep and fulfilling life through your son Jesus. In your holy name. Amen.
For those of you who have come to know God I am going to begin a new section that deals with guiding believers through their life with Jesus.
God be with you all.
