Seeing Christ Through the Prophets

 

The Scriptures are all about God revealing Himself to His creatures. The ultimate expression of God's nature and character is Christ. Note the words of Hebrews 1:3—

 

"Who being the brightness of [his] glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;" (KJV).

 

Since the Word of God reveals God, and Jesus is the image of the Invisible God, then we can find and worship our Lord Jesus Christ in every part of the Bible!

 

In the Books of History we see God's servants Following the Lord Jesus Christ. He was the Creator in the Garden, the Rock in the Wilderness, the Angel of the Lord and so on!

 

In the Books of Poetry we see God's servants worshiping the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the Suffering One, the Good Shepherd, the Redeemer and so on!

 

In the Books of Prophecy we see God's servants:

 

·         Seeing Christ (Major prophets) as Ruler, Prince of Peace and so on.

·         Trusting Christ (Pre-exilic prophets) as the Judge, One from Everlasting and so on.

·         Hoping in Christ (Post-exilic prophets) as the Sun of Righteousness, the Coming King and the Lord of All.
