God showed us The One that was to come…

Below are a list of Old Testament Prophesies
About Jesus that all came true in one day

Darkness over the land (Amos 8:9; Matthew 27:45) 

Buried in a rich man's tomb (Isaiah 53:9; Matthew 27:57-60)


I can’t help but wonder…How did they miss it?  How did so many miss that Jesus was The One that God had spoken of? And then I am convicted… how is it that I miss it every day?   Why do I often put Jesus on the shelf rather than treat Him like the Savior who died for my sins? 

They missed it…
            People still miss it…
                         I didn’t miss it….
                                        Yet I miss it every day.


Have you missed it
