44 He said to them, “This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms.”
45 Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. 46 He told them, “This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, 47 and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48 You are witnesses of these things. 49 I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.” Luke 24:44-49
Before Jesus Left the disciples to ascend into Heaven, the disciples were able to truly hear and understand in a clearer way what He had been telling them in His earthly teachings : the scriptures of old – those dealing with The Law, the works of the prophets and the great writings such as the Psalms spoke of Jesus’ coming into the world and of Him suffering and dying at the world’s hands.
Let us pray please : Eternal God, it is from You that all was made – the heavens, the waters, the earth, the creatures, everything ……. We thank You for that great creation. We also thank you for the great love You showed the world – You brought Your only begotten son into the world , He preached and taught the people, the world in many cases rejected Him, and put Him to death , where He was victorious over that death, once and for all !! Hallelujah ! He is LORD , He is our Savior , we pray all this in His Name…Amen.
Yours in Christ , Rollie
