Tissot’s painting depicting Jesus’ speaking His final words to the Jews in the Temple, “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together...but you were unwilling. Behold your house is being left to you desolate!” With these tragic words of pathos, Jesus prophesied the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple. Earlier He had declared to the Chief Priests and rulers that the Kingdom would be taken from them and be given to another nation (the Church) which would bring forth the fruit of the Kingdom.
Podcast of message ministered at The King’s Church in Jacksonville, Florida on Sunday, November 2, 2008. This is Part 3 of Bishop Kouri’s powerful exposition of Revelation 15:3 entitled, The Song of the Lamb.
The Song of the Lamb is a prophetic song of victory and dominion based upon the ancient prophesy given to the Prophet Isaiah by the Spirit of Christ hundreds of years before His incarnation. In this prophetic song, the Lamb of God prophesies the historic judgment that ultimately came upon apostate Israel in 70 AD as the Kingdom of God was taken from Old Covenant Israel and given to the saints of New Covenant Israel. The early Apostolic Church sang this song as a their testimony of their faith in King Jesus and His victory over Satan’s power, as they faced fierce persecution instigated by the Chief Priests and Elders of Israel and prosecuted by the Romans against Christ and His Church in the first century AD. This prophetic song was historically fulfilled in 70 AD with the burning of Jerusalem and the destruction of the Temple by the Romans, but it is still relevant for Christians and for Christ’s Church as we face today’s battles with the Kingdom of darkness in the 21st Century.
