God's Heart -- Supernaturally -- July 1, 2006
Then he said, "Everything I told you while I was with you comes to this: All the things written about Me in the Law of Moses, in the Prophets, and in the Psalms have to be fulfilled."
He went on to open their understanding of the Word of God, showing them how to read their Bibles this way. He said, "You can see now how it is written that the Messiah suffers, rises from the dead on the third day, and then a total life-change through the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed in His name to all nationsstarting from here, from Jerusalem! You're the first to hear and see it. You're the witnesses. What comes next is very important: I am sending what My Father promised to you, so stay here in the city until He arrives, until you're
equipped with power from on high." Luke 24:44-49 MSG
Then he said, "When I was with you before, I told you that everything written about Me by Moses and the prophets and in the Psalms must all come true." Then He opened their minds to understand these many Scriptures. And He said, "Yes, it was written long ago that the Messiah must suffer and die and rise again from the dead on the third day. With My authority, take this message of repentance to all the nations, beginning in Jerusalem: `There is forgiveness of sins for all who turn to Me.' You are witnesses of all these things.
"And now I will send the Holy Spirit, just as my Father promised. But stay here in the city until the Holy
Spirit comes and fills you with power from heaven." Luke 24:44-49 NLT
FATHER GOD, we so often rely upon ourselves to understand You, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and the Holy Scriptures. We simply cannot do it ourselves. We repent for our self sufficient ways and ask You to 'open our minds' for us so that we can see what You want us to see in Your Holy Word. We need You, we need Jesus, and we need the Holy Spirit to live lives that will draw others to You. Help us please. in Jesus' Name, Amen.
