The prophetic picture of a resurrected Christ (taken from the book of Psalms)

Psalm 16:9-11…Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

This prophecy about the promised Messiah and His resurrection from the grave was  foretold and written by King David in the book of Psalms. God made this prophetic statement through King David and described how the physical body of Christ “would not” see corruption as David’s physical body did. In this prophecy the miracle of  a Savior was foretold.  At time of death King David’s body was placed in the sepulcher (the grave) and still remains there. At time of death Christ’s body was placed in a tomb…but was miraculously “changed” or “glorified” in the miracle of a resurrection. Christ’s body did not see corruption (after death) nor does Christ’s body remain in a tomb at present.

Psalm 16:10…For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

David’s prophetic utterance in Psalms 16:10 about, “Leaving the soul in Hell”…is a Biblical description of the “unseen world” or the “spiritual abode of the dead”. Souls of just and unjust men will go to the unseen world and this abode of the dead when the physical body is laid in the grave. In the Old Testament records the unseen world and the abode of the dead was known as Abraham’s Bosom. Abraham’s bosom was defined by Christ in Luke 16 as place of comfort; and a place of torment. Lazarus and the rich man went to Abraham’s Bosom and could see each other but could not cross over the gulf between either place. Paradise (Heaven) and Hades (Hell) are both contained within Abraham’s Bosom.

Psalm 16:10  concerning the resurrection of Christ was preached by the Apostle Peter in Acts 2, and also  by the Apostle Paul in Acts 13. Both of these Apostles pointed the fact that Christ “rose” from the grave in bodily resurrection. The body of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was resurrected and did not experience decay or corruption like David’s body experienced.

The miracle of the death, burial, and resurrection of the the Holy One (Christ) fulfilled David’s prophecy of Psalm 16:9-11.

Psalm 16:9-11…Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Here are three other prophecies about the resurrection of Israel’s promised Messiah. All prophecies of a resurrected Lord were foretold and recorded  by King David in the book of Psalms.

Psalm 2:7…I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

Psalm 110:1…The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.

Psalm 132: 11…The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.

    Greetings from the Galilean hills. As we traverse the hills by bus, where Jesus walked whether to be near those he loved or to be away from the unbelieving crowd in his teaching ministry and the exercise of His authority over the power of sin and strife, disease and bondage of the evil one, one thing is real, our God’s hand on the people of Israel is real. As we looked over past the borders of Lebanon, Syria from the Golan Heights and as we saw the snow capped Mount Hermon in the distance and across the border, briefly in the sunshine then no more as the clouds rolled over the Mount, we know that His presence is always with his people whether they can see him or not.

    Then when we saw the tanks and the armored vehicles and soldiers on the ready for any intrususion we are reminded that there is One over all who does not sleep nor slumber. He is watching because He is alive. He is not dead!

    Indeed as the Golan Heights is blossoming into award winning wineries to call attention to arid lands which are blooming we had some goats milk and honey from dates and bees too.
    “Sit thou on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.” It will come to pass as He said. Thank God Jesus sits on the right hand of the Father interceding for His own despite our enemies. Praise The Lord and we shall overcome as He overcame the sting of death.
