10 As to this salvation, the prophets who prophesied of the grace that would come to you made careful searches and inquiries, 11 seeking to know what person or time the Spirit of Christ within them was indicating as He predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories to follow. 12 It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves, but you, in these things which now have been announced to you through those who preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven—things into which angels long to look. 1 Peter 1:10-12
The Bible contains the story of Jesus, cover to cover. As the prophets wrote down what the Spirit moved them to say, they could not help but wonder how all the pieces fit together.
Peter states the obvious, now that Jesus has come, that it was all about the Savior. He was the grace that would come, and by his death and resurrection, the glories to follow. Not even the angels were fully briefed on the program, but were quite intrigued by the gospel message and the church as it all unfolded.
Now, as the prophets and angels pondered the prophecies of old, we contemplate the pronouncements yet fulfilled. One thing we do know, grace is here and glories will follow!
