Forsaken By God
Foretold Lenten Sermon Series
Wednesday, April 3, 2019
“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from saving me, so far from the words of my groaning? (Psalm 22:1 NIV)
“About the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?”—which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Matthew 27:46 NIV)
What are the odds?
Mathematician Peter Stoner once calculated the odds of just 8 Old Testament prophecies being fulfilled in one person to be 1 in 1017. 1017 silver dollars would cover the state of Michigan five feet deep! In the Foretold series, we’ll be looking at 15 Messianic prophecies all fulfilled in Christ. Amazing confirmation that Jesus is in fact, the Son of God, who came to live and die for us and to defeat sin, Satan and death itself by His resurrection!
