Bible Prophecy Fulfilled? – Rebuking the Wind and Sea

bible prophecy fulfilledIs Jesus rebuking the wind and sea Bible prophecy fulfilled? To explore and search out the answer to that question, we’ll be taking a close look into several verses.

There are numerous passages in the Old Testament that point directly to Jesus being the Son of God (or rather God in the flesh, the Messiah), and through him we often see bible prophecy fulfilled. This is just one of many prophecies that Jesus fulfilled letting us all know that he was well anticipated & that there was none other than Himself as the only begotten Son of God.

Matthew 8: King James Bible

23 And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him. 24 And behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with waves: but he was asleep. 25 And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, “Lord, save us: we perish.”
26 And he saith unto them, “Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith?” Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. 27 But the men marveled, saying, “What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!”

I believe that it is safe to assume that prior to Jesus’s handling of the wind and sea that evening, ‘calming the storm’ so to speak was not a common occurrence. Several things had happened concerning weather in the Old Testament, but not this particular feat. At least in the Bible between Psalms and Matthew, it hadn’t happened.

Ever wonder if King David had any idea that the Messiah would use his songs as prophetic means to his identity in the years to come? Goes to show how little we regard the things we do, when we do them. God Almighty is no respecter of persons. When your heart is right in his eyes as King David’s was (and still is), the Spirit of God is sure to make use of your efforts in one way or another. Just thought I’d inject that in there…

In the following Psalm, David is giving praise unto God by taking notice of the daily events that seem random, but are orchestrated by the Author of all things. Bringing us into remembrance of how awesome our God is. Jesus stilling the wind and sea are foretold here in verse seven of Psalms 65, but let’s start a few verses before it.

Psalms 65: King James Bible

5 In terrible things in righteousness wilt thou answer us, O God of our salvation: who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are afar off upon the sea: 6 Which by his strength settleth fast the mountains; being girded with power: 7 Which stilleth the noise of the seas, the noise of their waves, and the tumult of the people.

Bible Prophecy Fulfilled End from the Beginning

Ecclesiastes 3: King James Bible

11 He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.

Isaiah 46:

10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

The Father uses prophecy fulfilled as something similar to a fingerprint. The scripture is peppered with all kinds of prophecies.  Some were for the times they were written, others were written for the immediate future of the people who penned it, and others were written for even our future. All of these are from the Father, who is the only one who declares the end of anything from the beginning. He’s the only one who can.

I would first like to point out that David refers to the Lord in verse five as the God of my Salvation. Also that he is the confidence throughout all the ends of the earth. Keep in mind that before Jesus came, and died in behalf of us all, salvation was for the Jews, God’s people of choice because of the promises he had made to his friend Abraham. There was not a call for any of the Israelites to go out into all the world and reveal the one true God.

It behooves me to bring into your remembrance what Jesus said to his apostles after he had resurrected and appeared to them in Galilee.

Matthew 28: King James Bible

18 And Jesus came and spake unto them saying, “All power is given unto me in heaven and earth. 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

In my observation, this is a very different message than what is found in the Old Testament. Before Christ Jesus, the work at hand was to keep the people in Israel and Judah from worshiping Idols and false Gods. Nothing really mentioned about evangelists being sent out into the world.

Being as far away from Israel as I am now, I will say that the message has truly gone out into all the world, notwithstanding, not all have heard nor do all believe. But it can be said that it seems that everywhere there is someone who believes, either in the open or maybe forced into secrecy.

These things push forward what David wrote so many years before the birth of Christ Jesus. He truly is the confidence of all the ends of the earth; the God of our salvation. Moving to verse seven, the proverbial nail is struck on the head concerning the identity of the Christ.

As if to sign a signature, and to remove any shadow of a doubt concerning his Holy identity, Jesus truly did still the noise of the sea, the noise of the waves, and the noise of the people (panicking Apostles). Being second to no one save God the Father himself, this is another perfect way that Jesus allowed scripture to be his proof, and the endless possibility of his handiwork.

But just when you think you are done with a revelation tucked into a particular Psalm, BAM, there’s another one to explore. Let’s bump up to verse 4 in Psalms 65.

Psalms 65: King James Bible

4 Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.

Jesus had discussed this in the parable of the wedding feast in Matthew 22, and in verse 14 he says “For many are called, but few are chosen”.

God is so awesome in all that he does, and all that he has established. He knows the end from the beginning, and makes sure to let us know it by prophecy. There is only one God that can do that! Read about it in One God – One Truth

    • Hi Belle,
      Thank you for your kind remark and deciding to comment! I hope that you enjoyed it and keep on trucking around the site, because there’s much more where this came from. This is actually one of the first posts written for this site. However, I do add different things to the older posts from time to time in an attempt to keep them fresh.
      Thanks again for stopping by and leaving your comment and God bless you!

  1. Howdy! This chapter of 2 Corinthians is really opened up the way that you have broken it down and presented it. I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog before but while reading through a few of the posts I realized it’s new to me. Nonetheless, I’m absolutely delighted I’m here and I’ll bookmark and check back often!

    • Hi Melvin,
      Thank you, I’m glad that it’s helped you in some fashion! This chapter is of course directed to everyone, and I’m pleased to say that the Lord gave insight into this chapter in ways that I’m not smart enough to do myself. All glory to the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords!
      God bless you in Jesus mighty name!

  2. Hello,
    I had to ask, would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine, WordPress, B2evolution, and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style appears to be different than most other blogs and I’m looking for something unique.

    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask and wasn’t sure where!

    • Hi there Logan,
      Not a problem. What I would advise you to do is to head over to the site section here called Website Creation. There’s a few pages under that category that may help you and give you some direction that I know full well I wish I had in the past.
      In the end, this is a WordPress site, through the benefits of SiteRubix, and the training, hosting and protection of WA. Check out those pages and you’ll learn more.
      Thanks for the comment and God bless you!

  3. Brian,
    An intriguing page that is definitely worth a comment.
    There’s no doubt that that you need to publish more on this issue if there’s more to commit to this page. It might not be a taboo subject, but usually people don’t talk about these topics.
    To the next! Cheers!!

    • Hi there Lucia,
      Thank you for the comment. If you liked this page, you’ll likely enjoy the rest of it. And if you do enjoy the rest of it, then maybe you shoulf go check out the book Kingdom of Darkness in a Fallen World! I hope that reading anything on this site would have either promoted you to get into the Word of the Lord or even more important provoke you to call upon the Lord for Salvation!
      God bless you in Christ Jesus!

    lot of work? I have no expertise in programming however I
    had been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyway, if you have any recommendations or techniques for new blog owners please
    share. I understand this is off topic however I simply wanted to ask.
    Thank you!
