PROPHESIED OF YOU IN CHRIST DAY

FULFILLED IN JESUS DAY

John 12:38-41  That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?  39  Therefore they could not believe [present active], because that Esaias said again,  40  He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.  41  These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him.
