Christ in the Old Testament (Miracles)

We know that Jesus did miracles. Here is the forerunner statement from the Old Testament.

“Then will the eyes of the blind be opened and the ears of the deaf unstopped. Then will the lame leap like a deer, and the mute tongue shout for joy. Water will gush forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert” (See Isaiah 35:5–6).

Sure enough, here it is in the new!

“When John, in prison, heard about the deeds of the Messiah, he sent his disciples to ask him, ‘Are you the one who is to come, or should we expect someone else?’ “Jesus replied, ‘Go back and report to John what you hear and see: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is proclaimed to the poor. Blessed is anyone who does not stumble on account of me'” (See Matthew 11:2–6).

John the Baptist temporarily lost sight of his own truth. His ministry is described here. 

“A voice of one calling: β€˜In the wilderness prepare the way for the Lord; make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain'” (See Isaiah 40:3–4).

Here is John, in his early days. “John replied in the words of Isaiah the prophet, ‘I am the voice of one calling in the wilderness, “Make straight the way for the Lord”‘” (See John 1:23).

Prayer- Oh, Lord, that all our voices would call out your name and make straight the way of Christ. Amen.
