Christ - the term means Messiah. This term is given/applied to Jesus of Nazareth. He is God in flesh. He came to save his people and the world. (John 1:14, John 3:16-17, & Matt. 1:21).
Trinity is not a biblical term, but it can be and is a biblical concept (Matt. 28:19, Mark 1:10-12 & John 17:21-24). Colossians 2:9 uses the greek term θεότης (theotēs). Most translations translate this term as deity. The King James Version (KJV) translates the term as “Godhead”.
Christ in Prophecy
There are several rebellions recorded in scripture. Arguably the most known rebellion is the fall of mankind in Genesis 3.
And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Jesus (His Death, Burial & Resurrection) is prophesied here (Gen. 3:15). Hebrews 2:14 attests to Jesus’s defeat over the Devil!
14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;

Isaiah 53 is viably one of the more comprehensive prophetic descriptions of Jesus, his earthly ministry and accomplishment. The lamb imagery is extremely thematic and potent in this chapter as it depicts the suffering savior and his death.
Isaiah 6 (Isaiah Vision) is powerful! I submit that Isaiah had the awesome experience of seeing the glorified Christ! In this vision, Isaiah clearly says he saw the Lord!!! Note all that is in Isaiah’s Vision:
- The Lord is enthroned (High and Lifted Up)
- Worship (Holy, holy, holy)
- Sinner (Isaiah)
- Sin/Iniquity taken away = Forgiveness (Seraph places coal from altar on Isaiah’s lips)
Isaiah sees the glorified Christ. Christ and His presence is so AWESOME that seraphim worship HIM! Isaiah is distraught because he can’t participate do to his sin(s). A seraph comes and places a coal from the altar on Isaiah’s lips and his sin is purged!!!! Who has the power to FORGIVE SIN?……..???
