Monday Morning Prophecy #64 – The Messiah Would Desire to Do God’s Will
The Messiah’s purpose on earth was made clear in the Old Testament. He would come to do the will of God.
Old Testament Prophecy
Then I said, “Here I am, I have come-
it is written about me in the scroll.
I desire to do your will, O my God;
your law is within my heart.” [Psalm 40:7-8 NIV]
New Testament Fulfillment
By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me. [John 5:30 NIV]
Therefore, when Christ came into the world, he said: Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but a body you prepared for me; with burnt offerings and sin offerings you were not pleased. Then I said, ‘Here I am–it is written about me in the scroll– I have come to do your will, O God.’ ” [Hebrews 10:5-7 NIV]
