WALKING: PART 2
- Believing comes from your head and your heart (Luke 24:25; Ephesians 5:2)
- Jesus' death was clearly predicted (Luke 24:26; Isaiah 53:3-5; Isaiah 50:6-7; Daniel 9:25-26; Zechariah 12:10; Ephesians 5:2)
- All Scripture points to Jesus (Luke 24:27; Genesis 22:8; Exodus 12:13; Leviticus 16:8; Numbers 21:9; Deuteronomy 18:18; Joshua 5:15; Judges 2:18; Ruth 2:20; 1 Samuel 18:1-2; 2 Samuel 7:12: 1 Kings 3:5; 2 Kings 4:43; 1 Chronicles 5:2; 2 Chronicles 9:22; Ezra 6:22; Nehemiah 1:11; Esther 4:14; Job 19:25; Psalm 22:6-8; Proverbs 3:5-6; Ecclesiastes 12:13; Song of Songs 2:4; Isaiah 7:14; Jeremiah 23:6; Lamentations 3:23; Ezekiel 34:11,15-16; Daniel 3:25; Hosea 3:1; Joel 2:28-29,32; Amos 8:9-10; Obadiah 1:21; Jonah 1:17; Micah 5:2; Nahum 1:9; Habakkuk 3:17-19; Zephaniah 3:17; Haggai 2:6; Zechariah 3:2,4; Malachi 4:1-2
25 Then Jesus said to them, “You foolish people! You find it so hard to believe all that the prophets wrote in the Scriptures."
Luke 24:25 (NKJV)
25 Then He said to them, “O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken!"
26 Wasn’t it clearly predicted that the Messiah would have to suffer all these things before entering his glory?”
3 He was despised and rejected—a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief. We turned our backs on him and looked the other way. He was despised, and we did not care. 4 Yet it was our weaknesses he carried; it was our sorrows that weighed him down. And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God, a punishment for his own sins! 5 But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed.
6 I offered my back to those who beat me and my cheeks to those who pulled out my beard. I did not hide my face from mockery and spitting. 7 Because the Sovereign LORD helps me, I will not be disgraced. Therefore, I have set my face like a stone, determined to do his will. And I know that I will not be put to shame.
25 Now listen and understand! Seven sets of seven plus sixty-two sets of seven will pass from the time the command is given to rebuild Jerusalem until a ruler—the Anointed One—comes. Jerusalem will be rebuilt with streets and strong defenses, despite the perilous times. 26 After this period of sixty-two sets of seven, the Anointed One will be killed, appearing to have accomplished nothing.
10 Then I will pour out a spirit of grace and prayer on the family of David and on the people of Jerusalem. They will look on me whom they have pierced and mourn for him as for an only son.
2 Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God.
27 Then Jesus took them through the writings of Moses and all the prophets, explaining from all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.
8 “God will provide a sheep for the burnt offering, my son,” Abraham answered. And they both walked on together.
13 But the blood on your doorposts will serve as a sign, marking the houses where you are staying. When I see the blood, I will pass over you.
8 He is to cast sacred lots to determine which goat will be reserved as an offering to the LORD and which will carry the sins of the people to the wilderness of Azazel.
9 So Moses made a snake out of bronze and attached it to a pole. Then anyone who was bitten by a snake could look at the bronze snake and be healed!
18 I will raise up a prophet like you from among their fellow Israelites. I will put my words in his mouth, and he will tell the people everything I command him.
15 The commander of the LORD’s army replied, “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy.” And Joshua did as he was told.
18 Whenever the LORD raised up a judge over Israel, he was with that judge and rescued the people from their enemies throughout the judge’s lifetime.
20 That man is one of our closest relatives, one of our family redeemers.
1 Samuel 18:1-2
1 After David had finished talking with Saul, he met Jonathan, the king’s son. There was an immediate bond between them, for Jonathan loved David.
2 Samuel 7:12
12 For when you die and are buried with your ancestors, I will raise up one of your descendants, your own offspring, and I will make his kingdom strong.
1 Kings 3:5
5 That night the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream, and God said, “What do you want? Ask, and I will give it to you!”
2 Kings 4:43
43 "What?” his servant exclaimed. “Feed a hundred people with only this?” But Elisha repeated, “Give it to the people so they can eat, for this is what the LORD says: Everyone will eat, and there will even be some left over!”
1 Chronicles 5:2
2 The descendants of Judah became the most powerful tribe and provided a ruler for the nation.
2 Chronicles 9:22
22 So King Solomon became richer and wiser than any other king on earth.
22 There was great joy throughout the land because the LORD had caused the king of Assyria to be favorable to them, so that he helped them to rebuild the Temple of God, the God of Israel.
11 O Lord, please hear my prayer! Listen to the prayers of those of us who delight in honoring you. Please grant me success today by making the king favorable to me. Put it into his heart to be kind to me.” In those days I was the king’s cup-bearer.
Who knows if perhaps you were made queen for just such a time as this?
25 But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, and he will stand upon the earth at last.
7 Everyone who sees me mocks me. They sneer and shake their heads, saying, 8 “Is this the one who relies on the LORD? Then let the LORD save him! If the LORD loves him so much, llet the LORD rescue him!”
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. 6 Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.
13 That’s the whole story. Here now is my final conclusion: Fear God and obey his commands, for this is everyone’s duty.
Song of Songs 2:4 (NKJV)
4 He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.
14 Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel (which means ‘God is with us’).

11 For this is what the Sovereign LORD says: I myself will search and find my sheep. 15 I myself will tend my sheep and give them a place to lie down in peace, says the Sovereign LORD. 16 I will search for my lost ones who strayed away, and I will bring them safely home again. I will bandage the injured and strengthen the weak.
25 “Look!” Nebuchadnezzar shouted. “I see four men, unbound, walking around in the fire unharmed! And the fourth looks like a god!”
1 Then the LORD said to me, “Go and love your wife again, even though she commits adultery with another lover. This will illustrate that the LORD still loves Israel, even though the people have turned to other gods and love to worship them.”
28 I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your old men will dream dreams, and your young men will see visions. 29 In those days I will pour out my Spirit even on servants—men and women alike. 32 But everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved,
9 "In that day,” says the Sovereign LORD, “I will make the sun go down at noon and darken the earth while it is still day...10 as if your only son had died.
21 And the LORD himself will be king!
17 And Jonah was inside the fish for three days and three nights.
2 But you, O Bethlehem, are only a small village among all the people of Judah. Yet a ruler of Israel, whose origins are in the distant past, will come from you on my behalf.
Nahum 1:9 (NKJV)
9 He will make an utter end of it. Affliction will not rise up a second time.
17 Even though the fig trees have no blossoms, and there are no grapes on the vines; even though the olive crop fails, and the fields lie empty and barren; even though the flocks die in the fields, and the cattle barns are empty, 18 yet I will rejoice in the LORD! I will be joyful in the God of my salvation! 19 The Sovereign LORD is my strength!
17 For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.
6 For this is what the LORD of Heaven’s Armies says: "In just a little while I will again shake the heavens and the earth, the oceans and the dry land."
2 And the LORD said to Satan, “I, the LORD, reject your accusations, Satan. Yes, the LORD, who has chosen Jerusalem, rebukes you. This man is like a burning stick that has been snatched from the fire.” 4 So the angel said to the others standing there, “Take off his filthy clothes.” And turning to Jeshua he said, “See, I have taken away your sins, and now I am giving you these fine new clothes.”
1 The LORD of Heaven’s Armies says, “The day of judgment is coming, burning like a furnace. On that day the arrogant and the wicked will be burned up like straw. They will be consumed—roots, branches, and all. 2 But for you who fear my name, the Sun of Righteousness will rise with healing in his wings. And you will go free, leaping with joy like calves let out to pasture."
