May 9, 2022 – How Was God Pointing to the Messiah?
Sermon: 2174 – When Time Runs Out
Pray Over This
“Seventy weeks are determined for your people and for your holy city, to finish the transgression, to make an end of sins, to make reconciliation for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy, and to anoint the Most Holy.”
In this text, Daniel said that God was going “to finish the transgression,” not a transgression, but the transgression. To whom was Daniel speaking? Israel. What is the transgression of Israel? It was the rejection of Israel’s Messiah. But one day, thank God, that rejection will be over. Israel’s transgression will be in the past.
Further, God's going to make an end of sins, because there can be no end of sins without Messiah. There is no forgiveness of sin apart from the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. There’s coming a time when the Jews shall turn in faith to Jesus Christ and trust Him. Romans 11:26 says, “And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: ‘The Deliverer will come out of Zion, and He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob.’”
