The prophecy of the Lord Jesus for our consideration and edification, written centuries prior to His earthly existence is
|To make reconciliation for iniquity|
|Old Testament Prophecy|
|and to atone for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal both vision and prophet, and to anoint a most holy place.|
|New Testament Fulfillment|
|For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.|
|2 Cor 5:18-21|
|All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation;|
that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.
Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.
For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
