And the dragon stood before the woman
which was ready to be delivered, for to
devour her child as soon as it was born.
And she brought forth a man child, who was   
to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her

throne. Re. 12: 4, 5
(Gal. 4: 4, Heb. 2: 14)
Then take silver and gold, and make
crowns, and set them upon the head of
Joshua the son of Josedech, the high
priest; And speak unto him, saying, Thus
speaketh the Lord of hosts, saying,
Behold the man whose name is The
BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his
place, and he shall build the temple of the
Lord: Even he shall build the temple of the
Lord; and he shall bear the glory, and
shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he
shall be a priest upon his throne: and the
counsel of peace shall be between them
both. Zec. 6: 11-13 (Ezra 3: 8)

as Priest-King
Messiah










But while he thought on these things,
behold, the angel of the Lord appeared
unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou
son of David, fear not to take unto thee
Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in
her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall
bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his
name JESUS: for he shall save his people
from their sins. Mt.1: 20-21

infants at His
birth by Herod




Then was fulfilled that which was spoken
by Jeremy the prophet, saying, In Rama
was there a voice heard, lamentation, and
weeping, and great mourning, Rachel
weeping for her children, and would not be
comforted, because they are not.

Out of Egypt have I called my Son.

Nevertheless the dimness shall not be such
as was in her vexation, when at the first be

land of Naphtali, and afterward did more
grievously afflict her by the way of the sea,
beyond Jordan, in Galilee of the nations.
The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined. Is. 9: 1-2

Ministry begins
in Galilee









And leaving Nazareth, He came and dwelt
in Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast,
in the borders of Zabulon and
Nephthalim: That it might be fulfilled which
was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,
The land of Zabulon, and the land of
Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond
Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles; The people
which sat in darkness saw great light, and
to them which sat in the region and shadow
of death light is sprung up. Mt 4: 13-16
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me;
because the Lord hath anointed me to
preach good tidings unto the meek; he
hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the
opening of the prison to them that are
bound; To proclaim the acceptable YEAR
OF THE LORD, and the day of vengeance
of our God; to comfort all that mourn.
Is. 61: 1-2



Prophesies in
His time











The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because
he hath anointed me to preach the gospel
to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the
brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to
the captives, and recovering of sight to the
blind, to set at liberty them that are
bruised. To preach the acceptable year of
the Lord. And he closed the book, and he
gave it again to the minister, and sat down.
And the eyes of all them that were in the
synagogue were fastened on him. And he
began to say unto them, This day is this
scripture fulfilled in your ears. Lu. 4: 18-22

Lord, and the DAY OF VENGEANCE of our

the Day of
Vengeance
(70 A.D.)
Prophecy





And when ye shall see Jerusalem
compassed with armies then know that
the desolation thereof is nigh, Then let
them in Judea flee to the mountains, and
let them which are in the midst of it depart
out; and let not them that are in the
countries enter thereinto. For these be
the days of vengeance, that all things
which are written may be fulfilled.
Lu. 21: 20-22
I will raise them up a Prophet from among
their [Levites] brethren [11 tribes], like unto
thee, and will put my words in his mouth
which he shall speak in my name I will
require it of him.
De. 18: 18



Prophet like
unto Moses







If I told you earthly things, and ye believe
not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of
heavenly things? And no man hath
ascended up to heaven, but he that came
down from heaven, even the Son of man
which is in heaven. And as Moses lifted
up the serpent in the wilderness, even so
must the Son of man be lifted up.
Joh. 3: 12-14 (Ac. 3: 22-26)
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is
given: and the government shall be upon
his shoulder: and his name shall be called
Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God,
The everlasting Father, the Prince of
Peace. Is. 9: 6
Jesus is God's
Son




For God so loved the world, that he gave his
only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth
in him should not perish, but have
everlasting life.
Joh. 3: 16

For he shall grow up before him as a
tender plant, and as a root out of a dry
ground: he hath no form nor comeliness;
and when we shall see him, there is no
beauty that we should desire him.
Is. 53: 2
Appearance is
of a common
man



Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary,
the brother of James, and Joses, and of
Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters
here with us? And they were offended at
him. Mk. 6: 3 (Php. 2: 7-8)

I am become a stranger unto my brethren,
and an alien unto my mother’s children.
Ps. 69: 8
Prophet without
honor in His
own country
For Jesus himself testified that a prophet
hath no honour in his own country.
Joh. 4: 44
For I will pour water upon him that is
thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground:
I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and
my blessing upon thine offspring: And
they shall spring up as among the grass,
as willows by the water courses.
Is. 44: 3-4



The Living
Water
In the last day, that great day of the feast,
Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man
thirst let him come unto me, and drink. He
that believeth on me, as the scripture hath
said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of
living water. (But this spake he of the
Spirit, which they that believe on him
should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not
yet given; because that Jesus was not yet
glorified.) Joh. 7: 37-38
Surely he hath borne our griefs, and
carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem
him stricken, smitten of God, and
afflicted. Is. 53: 4




Bore our
afflictions






When the even was come, they brought
unto him many that were possessed with
devils: and he cast out the spirits with His
word, and healed all that were sick: That
it might be fulfilled which was spoken by
Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took
our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.
Mt. 8: 16-17
Behold, my servant, whom I uphold; mine
elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have
put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth
judgment to the Gentiles. Is. 42: 1

God's Servant
a Light to the
Gentiles


Behold my servant, whom I have chosen;
my beloved, in whom my soul is well
pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and
he shall show judgment to the Gentiles.
Mt. 12: 18
A bruised reed shall he not break, and
the smoking flax shall he not quench: he
shall bring forth judgment unto truth.
Is. 42: 3 (Is. 61: 1-3)
Ministry
to the
downtrodden

A bruised reed shall he not break, and
smoking flax shall he not quench, till he
send forth judgment unto victory.
Mt. 12: 20
He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he
shall gather the lambs with his arm, and
carry them in his bosom, and shall gently
lead those that are with young. Is. 40: 11
(Ps. 23: 1)




The Good
Shepherd







I am the good shepherd, and know my
sheep, and am known of mine. As the
Father knoweth me, even so know I the
Father: and I lay down my life for the
sheep. And other sheep I have, which are
not of this fold: them also I must bring, and
they shall hear my voice; and there shall
be one fold, and one shepherd.
Joh. 10: 14-16
Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout,
O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King
cometh unto thee: he is just, and having
salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass,
and upon a colt the foal of an ass.
Zec. 9: 9



Enters Jeru-
salem riding
on the colt of
an ass





On the next day much people that were
come to the feast, when they heard that
Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, took
branches of palm trees, and went forth to
meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is
the King of Israel that cometh in the name
of the Lord. And Jesus, when he had found
a young ass, sat thereupon; as it is written:
Joh. 12: 12-14 (Mk. 11: 7-10)
Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings
hast thou ordained strength because of
thine enemies, that thou mightest still the
enemy and the avenger. When I consider
thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the
moon and the stars, which thou hast
ordained; What is man, that thou art
mindful of him? And the son of man,
that thou visitest him? Ps. 8: 2-4
(Ps. 148)
Children cry
Hosanna to
The King







And when the chief priests and scribes
saw the wonderful things that he did, and
the children crying in the temple, and
saying, Hosanna to the son of David;
they were sore displeased, And said
unto him, Hearest thou what these say?
And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye
never read, Out of the mouth of babes
and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?
Mt. 21: 15-16
Is this house, which is called by my
name, become a den of robbers in your
eyes? Behold, even I have seen it, saith
the Lord. Jer. 7: 11
Zeal for God’s
house


And said unto them, It is written, My
house shall be called the house of prayer;
but ye have made it a den of thieves.
Mt. 21: 13 (Joh. 2: 14-17)
I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me,
and art become my salvation. The stone
which the builders refused is become the
head stone of the corner. This is the
Lord’s doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.
Ps. 118: 22-23
The Stone
rejected by
authorities



Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read
in the scriptures, The stone which the
builders rejected, the same is become the
head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing,
and it is marvellous in our eyes?
Mt. 21: 42
Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying,
Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?
Then said I, Here am I; send me. And he
said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye
indeed, but understand not; and see ye
indeed, but perceive not. Make the heart
of this people fat, and make their ears
heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see
with their eyes, and hear with their ears,
and understand with their heart, and
convert, and be healed. Is. 6: 8-10
People do not
believe









Therefore they could not believe, because
that Esaias said again, He hath blinded
their eyes, and hardened their heart; that
they should not see with their eyes, nor
understand with their heart, and be
converted, and I should heal them.
These things said Esaias, when he
saw His glory, and spake of Him.
Joh. 12: 39-41


In those days they shall say no more, The
fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the
children’s teeth are set on edge. But every
one shall die for his own iniquity: every
man that eateth the sour grape, his teeth
shall be set on edge. Behold, the days
come, saith the Lord, that I will make a
NEW COVENANT with the house of
Israel, and with the house of Judah.
Jer. 31: 29-31
Ministers the
New Covenant








For I say unto you, I will not drink of the
fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of
God shall come. And he took bread,
and gave unto them, saying, This is my
body which is given for you: this do in
remembrance of me. Likewise also the
cup after supper, saying, This cup is the
NEW TESTAMENT in my blood which is
shed for you. Lu. 22: 18-20

Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom
I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath
lifted up his heel against me. Ps. 41: 9
(ca. 1000 B.C.)
The betrayal of
Christ


I speak not of you all: I know whom I have
chosen: but that the scripture may be
fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath
lifted up his heel against me. Joh. 13: 18
They that hate me without a cause are
more than the hairs of mine head: they that
would destroy me, being mine enemies
wrongfully, are mighty: then I restored that
which I took not away. Ps. 69: 4


Hated without
cause





If I had not done among them the works
which none other man did, they had not
had sin: but now have they both seen and
hate both me and my Father. But this
cometh to pass that the word might be
fulfilled that is written in their law, They
hated me without a cause. Joh. 15: 24-25
And I said unlo them. If ye think good, give
me my price, and if not, forbear. So they
weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver.
Zec. 11: 12
Price paid for
Jesus' betrayal


And said unto them, What will ye give me,
and I will deliver him unto you? And they
covenanted with him for thirty pieces of
silver. Mt. 26: 15
Awake, O sword, against my shepherd,
and against the man that is my fellow, saith
the Lord of hosts: smite the shepherd, and
the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn
mine hand upon the little ones. Zec. 13: 7
(ca. 500 B.C)
Forsaken by
disciples




Then saith Jesus unto them. All ye shall be
offended because of me this night: for it is
written, I will smite the shepherd, and the
sheep of the flock shall be scattered
abroad. Mt. 26: 31 (Mk. 14: 50)

And the Lord said unlo me, Cast it unto the
potter: a goodly price that I was prised at
of them. And I took the thirty pieces of
silver, and cast them to the potter in the
house of the Lord. Zec. 11: 13



Price of
betrayal cast
away on a
potter’s field




And he cast down the pieces of silver
in the temple, and departed, and went and
hanged himself. And the chief priests took
the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful
for to put them into the treasury, because
it is the price of blood. And they took
counsel, and bought with them the potter’s
field, to bury strangers in. Mt. 27: 5-7
False witnesses did rise up; they laid to my
charge things that I knew not. Ps. 35: 11

False witnesses
at His trial

For many bare false witness against him,
but their witness agreed not together.
Mk. 14: 56
He is brought as a lamb to the slaughter,
and as a sheep before her shearers is
dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
Is. 53:7
Silent before
His accusers as
a lamb to the
slaughter
And he answered him to never a word;
insomuch that the governor marvelled
greatly. Mt. 27: l4 (Joh. 1: 29)

But he was wounded for our
transgressions, he was bruised for our
iniquities: the chastisement of our peace
was upon him; and with his stripes we are
healed. Is. 53: 5
Jesus' scourging




Then released he Barabbas unto them: and
when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered
him to be crucified. Mt. 27: 26


As many were astonied at thee; his visage
was so marred more than any man, and
his form more than the sons of men:
Is. 52: 14
His marred
visage (face)


Then Jesus came forward, wearing the crown
of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilatus
said to them, [ECCEHOMO] Behold the
man. Joh. 19: 5
And if a man have committed a sin worthy
of death, and he be to be put to death, and
thou hang him on a tree: His body shall not
remain all night upon the tree, but thou
shalt in any wise bury him that day; (for he
that is hanged is accursed of God;) that thy
land be not defiled, which the Lord thy
God giveth thee for an inheritance.
De. 21: 22-23
The Saviour's
crucifixion
according to the
law of the land





And he said unto them the third time, Why,
what evil hath he done? I have found no
cause of death in him: I will therefore
chastise him, and let him go. And they
were instant with loud voices, requiring
that he might be crucified. And the voices
of them and of the chief priests prevailed.
And Pilate gave sentence that it should be
as they required. Lu. 23: 22-24
I gave my back to the smiters, and my
cheeks to them that plucked off the hair:
I hid not my face from shame and spitting.
Is. 50: 6



Spat upon in
humiliation





And they smote him on the head with a
reed, and did spit upon him, and bowing
their knees worshipped him. And when
they had mocked him, they took off the
purple from him, and put his own clothes
on him, and led him out to crucify him.
Mk. 15: 19-20
For dogs have compassed me: the
assembly of the wicked have inclosed me:
they pierced my hands and my feet.
Ps. 22: 16



He is nailed to
the cross





The other disciples therefore said unto him,
We have seen the Lord. But he said unto
them, Except I shall see in his hands the
print of the nails, and put my finger into the
print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his
side, I will not believe.
Joh. 20: 25 (Re. 1: 7)
Therefore will I divide him a portion with the
great, and he shall divide the spoil with the
strong; because he hath poured out his
soul unto death: And he was numbered
with the transgressors; and he bare the sin
of many, and made intercession for the
transgressors. Is. 53:12
Numbered with
transgressors





And when they were come to the place,
which is called Calvary, there they
crucified him, and the malefactors, one
on the right hand, and the other on the left.
Lu. 23: 33


They part my garments among them, and
cast lots upon my vesture. Ps. 22: 18


The parting of
His garments by
castings lots

Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for
they know not what they do. And they
parted his raiment, and cast lots.
Lu. 23: 34
I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried:
mine eyes fail while I wait for my God.
Ps. 69: 3
He becomes
thirsty

After this, Jesus knowing that all things
were now accomplished, that the scripture
might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst. Joh. 19: 28
They gave me also gall for my meat; and
in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.
Ps. 69: 21
Given bitter
drink

They gave him vinegar to drink mingled
with gall: and when he had tasted thereof,
he would not drink. Mt. 27: 34
I became also a reproach unto them: when
they looked upon me they shaked their
heads. Ps. 109: 25
He is mocked


And they that passed by reviled him,
wagging their heads. Mt. 27:39

All they that see me laugh me to scorn:
they shoot out the lip, they shake the head,
saying, He trusted on the Lord that he
would deliver him: let him deliver him,
seeing he delighted in him. Ps. 22:7, 8
Railing and
taunting toward
Christ


And one of the malefactors which were
hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be
Christ, save thyself and us. Lu. 23: 39
(Mt. 27:43)

And he bare the sin of many, and made
intercession for the transgressors.
Is. 53:12








His intercession
for a fellow
sufferer in
need







But the other answering rebuked him,
saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing
thou art in the same condemnation? And
we indeed justly; for we receive the due
reward of our deeds: but this man hath
done nothing amiss. And he said unto
Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou
comest into thy kingdom. And Jesus said
unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day
shalt thou be with me in paradise.
Lu. 23: 42-43
And it shall come to pass in that day. saith
the Lord God, that I will cause the sun to go
down at noon, and I will darken the earth in
the clear day. Am. 8: 9
The sun going
down at noon


Now from the sixth hour there was
darkness over all the land unto the ninth
hour. Mt. 27: 45

My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken
me? why art thou so far from helping me,
