    LUKE 24:21 THEIR UNDERSTANDING OPENED

    Luke 24:21 But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done.

    There were those who looked for the redemption of Israel (Luke 2:38 Isaiah 59:20) and thought Jesus to be that Redeemer.

    24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

    24:45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,

    The eleven being gathered together had their understanding of the scriptures opened to them. The scriptures were those of the law and the prophets. The mystery revealed to Paul was not hid in these scriptures, as it was hid in God (Ephesians 3:9); therefore they could not have known it even at this time.

    24:46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:

    24:47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

    The eleven were to go and preach remission of sins in the name of Jesus. This was not the same as the gospel Paul would preach. They were to teach the nations in the kingdom to observe all they were commanded by Jesus and baptize them in the name of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost (Matthew 28:19-20).

    24:48 And ye are witnesses of these things.

    24:49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

    They would have the Holy Spirit poured out unto them at Pentecost (Acts 2:1-4) and be endued with power for the Davidic kingdom on earth (Mark 11:10).

    Luke 1: 32. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David,

    33. and he will reign over Jacob's descendants forever; his kingdom will never end."


    1 Chronicles 17: 12. He is the one who will build a house for me, and I will establish his throne forever.

    13. I will be his father, and he will be my son. I will never take my love away from him, as I took it away from your predecessor.

    14. I will set him over my house and my kingdom forever; his throne will be established forever.'"

    15. Nathan reported to David all the words of this entire revelation.

    Revelation 3: 7. ........These are the words of him who is holy and true, who holds the key of David. What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open.


    This is a flawless piece Doug. You were with out any doubt filled with the Holy Ghost when you wrote it.
    Abraham did not do such things.... (John 8:40)
