A Prophecy To You
by Wayne Blank
"In Memory Of Her"
Just before the Passover when He was to be Crucified (see The Fateful Night and How Did Jesus Christ Die?), while Jesus "was at Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, a woman came up to Him with an alabaster flask of very expensive ointment, and she poured it on His head, as He sat at table." (Matthew 26:6-7 RSV).
When those who were with Jesus saw what she did, they were upset with the lady, and criticized her for "wasting" the perfume. They said that it could have been sold at a good price and the money given to the poor. The response of Jesus was very different however. He made a prophecy that absolutely guaranteed her place in Bible History:
"Why do you trouble the woman? For she has done a beautiful thing to Me. For you always have the poor with you, but you will not always have Me. In pouring this ointment on My body she has done it to prepare Me for burial. Truly, I say to you, wherever this Gospel is preached in the whole world, what she has done will be told in memory of her." (Matthew 26:10-13 RSV)
This simple little prediction by Jesus Christ is an excellent example for those who seek the proof that prophecy is real, was made long ago, and will be fulfilled when the appointed time comes. Those words survived and travelled nearly 20 centuries from the mouth of Jesus Christ right to every person who reads or hears it. Your reading of those words causes that Biblical prophecy to again be fulfilled, this time in you.
