God's Promises Fulfilled
Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in
the midst of thee, saith the LORD. And many nations shall be joined to the
LORD in that day, and shall be my people: and I will dwell in the midst of
thee, and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto thee.
Zechariah 3:8-9 Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows
that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring
forth my servant the BRANCH. For behold the stone that I have laid before
Joshua; upon one stone shall be seven eyes: behold, I will engrave the graving
thereof, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that
land in one day.
And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Behold
the man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place,
and he shall build the temple of the LORD: Even he shall build the temple
of the LORD; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his
throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace
shall be between them both. And the crowns shall be to Helem, and to Tobijah,
and to Jedaiah, and to Hen the son of Zephaniah, for a memorial in the temple
of the LORD. And they that are far off shall come and build in the temple
of the LORD, and ye shall know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you.
And this shall come to pass, if ye will diligently obey the voice of the
LORD your God.
But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering
of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should
taste death for every man.
Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high
priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the
Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold,
thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding
upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.
And they brought him to Jesus: and they cast their garments upon the colt,
and they set Jesus thereon. And as he went, they spread their clothes in
the way. And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount
of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise
God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen; Saying,
Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven,
and glory in the highest.
Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow,
saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered:
and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones. And it shall come to pass,
that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off
and die; but the third shall be left therein. And I will bring the third
part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will
try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them:
I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.
Then saith Jesus unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night:
for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock
shall be scattered abroad.
And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem;
half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea:
in summer and in winter shall it be.
In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying,
If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on
me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living
Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea,
which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in
the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall
be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.
What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured
with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: And that
he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which
he had afore prepared unto glory, Even us, whom he hath called, not of the
Jews only, but also of the Gentiles? As he saith also in Osee [Hosea], I
will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which
was not beloved. And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was
said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children
of the living God.
In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close
up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build
it as in the days of old:
Simeon hath declared how God at the first did visit the Gentiles, to take
out of them a people for his name. And to this agree the words of the prophets;
as it is written, After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle
of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof,
and I will set it up: That the residue of men might seek after the Lord,
and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth
all these things. Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of
Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days
I will raise it up.
And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon
all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men
shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants
and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. And I will
shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars
of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood,
before the great and terrible day of the LORD come. And it shall come to
pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered:
for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath
said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.
And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord
in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing
mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there
appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of
But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; And it shall come
to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all
flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men
shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants
and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they
shall prophesy: And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the
earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: The sun shall be turned
into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day
of the Lord come: And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on
the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with
the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant
that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to
bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although
I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: But this shall be the covenant
that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD,
I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and
will be their God, and they shall be my people. And they shall teach no more
every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD:
for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them,
saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their
sin no more. Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day,
and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which
divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name:
If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, then the seed
of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever. Thus saith
the LORD; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth
searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all
that they have done, saith the LORD.
This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the
Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write
them; And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.
Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament
in my blood, which is shed for you. [NIV: "In the same way, after the supper
he took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which
is poured out for you."]
