The prophecy of the Lord Jesus for our consideration and edification, written centuries prior to His earthly existence is
|Anointed One by the Spirit|
|Old Testament Prophecy|
|And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him,|
the Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
the Spirit of counsel and might,
the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.
|New Testament Fullfillment|
|And when Jesus was baptized, immediately he went up from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to rest on him;|
and behold, a voice from heaven said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.”
|how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.|
