Jesus Christ was a prophet of Israel. He was the last and the greatest in a long line. That line had begun with Moses who had said God would raise up after him a prophet from among the people (Deuteronomy 18). God indeed raised up prophet after prophet – including Elijah and Elisha – until, over a thousand years later, the great prophet Jesus was raised up…from the dead!
Jesus now rules as King of the kingdom of God, and we have no more need of prophets to predict the coming of that kingdom. The long-awaited kingdom is here. At the end of the New Testament age, it ceased to be future. It became present, and it shall always be so for Isaiah (another of Israel’s long line of prophets) told us that “of the increase of His government…there shall be no end.”
Cease waiting on the kingdom of God as a future reality. Seek it and God’s righteousness today…for it is near you.
The purpose of this blog is to praise Jesus Christ in biblical terms.
