July 10: Messianic Prophesy

God’s prophetic word applies to different situations and times but will always find complete fulfillment.  King David used the memorial name for God (יְהוָה) and referred to the resurrection of Yeshua! 

Psalm 16:8-11

I have set God always before me;
Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved.

Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices;
My flesh also will rest in hope.
For You will not leave my soul in Sheol,
Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.
You will show me the path of life;
In Your presence is fullness of joy;
At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

Then on the day of Pentecost, Peter explained the fuller meaning of David’s song.

Acts 2:29-31

“Men and brethren, let me speak freely to you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his tomb is with us to this day.  Therefore, being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that of the fruit of his body, according to the flesh, He would raise up the Christ to sit on his throne, he, foreseeing this, spoke concerning the resurrection of the Christ, that His soul was not left in Hades, nor did His flesh see corruption.
