The Old Testament is the Holy Scripture of Christianity, Islam and Judaism. The Jewish Rabbi Jesus Christ is the awaited Messiah of Christianity and Islam. (Koran 3:40-43). Yesterday, April 8, 2007, Easter 2007, Pope Benedict XVI said, “Brothers and sisters in faith, who are listening to me from every part of the world! Christ is risen and he is alive among us. It is he who is the hope of a better future.”
After winning the Masters yesterday Zach Johnson said, “My Christian faith is very important to me. It was very special to win the Masters golf tournament on Easter Sunday. I am very blessed. I would like to thank God. I felt Jesus Christ with me on the golf course every step of the way.” By stroking Zach’s putts coming down the stretch Jesus has certainly given Zach Johnson a brighter future. Now Zach Johnson can choose next year’s Champion’s Dinner menu. Imagine being able to tell Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer what to eat at Augusta.
Zach Johnson is named after the Biblical Prophet of Christianity, Islam and Judaism Prophet Zechariah the son of the golden Berechiah the son of Iddo. The last time that Zach Johnson’s putter was this hot was when he won the last three events on the 2001 NGA Hooters Tour. Name the other 7 Major Champions who played on the NGA Hooters Tour. You needed to be a Biblical Prophet to bet that Zach Johnson would win the Masters yesterday at 1000 to 1 at Caesar’s Palace. Zach Johnson has come a long way since the Nationwide Tour’s 2003 Rheem Classic. Chris Couch won the 2005 Rheem Classic.
Prophecy is when God of Mount Sinai aka Jesus Christ aka God the Father aka The Holy Spirit aka Elohim aka Yehovah aka Allah tells the future to a human being. The question is “How does God know the future if it hasn’t happened yet?” Michelangelo painted the Prophet Zechariah on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel where Pope Benedict XVI celebrated Easter this week. The Hebrew Prophet Zechariah lived in 520 BC during the reign of King Darius of Persia (Iran) 16 years after the Jewish people began to return to Israel after their exile in Babylon (Iraq).
The address of the NGA Hooters Tour is 1211 Hwy 17 N North Myrtle Beach South Carolina 29582. 2527 years ago the Prophet Zechariah said, “In the night I saw a man riding on a red horse! He was standing among the myrtle trees in the glen.” (Zech. 1:8). The rider was with 2 other men, one on a white horse and one on a sorrel horse. These were the men who God had sent to patrol the earth and the whole earth was at peace. The men’s and ladies’ golf tours are where people from all over the world play peacefully together by the same rules.
Zach Johnson is a short hitter but a spectacular putter. He laid up 16 times on Augusta’s par 5’s and walked away with 11 birdies. The Prophet Zechariah said, “Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, says the Lord of Hosts.” (Zech. 4:6). “I looked up and saw a man with a measuring line in his hand.” (Zech. 2:1). “I see a lampstand all of gold with a bowl on the top of it.” (Zech. 4:2).
After his round Zach Johnson was hugged and kissed by his wife who was holding his baby son Will. The Prophet Zechariah said, “Then I looked up and saw two women coming forward. The wind was in their wings; they had wings like the wings of a stork and they lifted up the basket between earth and sky.” (Zech. 5:9).
The most treasured prize in golf is the Masters green jacket. Yesterday defending champion Phil Mickelson anointed and clothed Zach Johnson in his new green jacket in the Butler Cabin. The Prophet Zechariah said, “The High Priest Joshua (Jesus’ Hebrew name was Joshua) was dressed in filthy clothes as he stood before the angel. The angel said to those who were standing before him, ‘Take off his filthy clothes.’ And to him he said, ‘See I have taken your guilt and sin away from you and I will clothe you in festal apparel…So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him in the festal apparel. And the angel of the Lord was standing by.” (Zech. 3:4-5). After his Masters victory Zach Johnson said, “I felt Jesus Christ with me on the golf course every step of the way.”
