    Messianic Prophecies

    "Messiah" means "Anointed One"

    Biblical prophecy specialists Peter and Paul LaLonde have noted that:

    The Old Testament includes about sixty different prophecies, with more than 300 references, of the coming of the Messiah. It was through the fulfillment of these prophecies that Israel was told she would be able to recognize the true Messiah when He came. The four gospels record several times when Jesus said that He was fulfilling a prophecy of the Old Testament. Luke 24:27 records, for example,

    "And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself." And verse 44 notes, "And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and the prophets and the psalms, concerning me." [Peter and Paul LaLonde, 301 Startling Proofs & Prophecies (Niagra Falls, Ontario, Canada: Prophecy Partners, Inc., 1996).]

    Jesus Christ himself said, "For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote about Me" (John 5:46, NKJV). Likewise, Christ's disciples taught that He fulfilled Old Testament prophecy (e.g., Acts 3:18; 17:2-3; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4).

    Partial list of prophecies about the Messiah....

    "...
    10. He will be born of a virgin (Isaiah 7:14). Fulfilled: Matthew 1; Luke 1.

    11. The Messiah would be the “seed of of a woman” come to destroy the work of the Devil. Not long after Creation, God prophecied to the serpent Satan, "And I will put enmity between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel" (Genesis 3:15).
    The implication was that Eve's descendant would undo the damage that Satan had caused.

    The “seed of the woman” can only be an allusion to a future descendant of Eve who would have no human father. Biologically, a woman produces no seed, and except in this case Biblical usage always speaks only of the seed of men. This promised Seed would, therefore, have to be miraculously implanted in the womb. In this way, He would not inherit the sin nature which would disqualify every son of Adam from becoming a Savior from sin. This prophecy thus clearly anticipates the future virgin birth of Christ.

    Satan will inflict a painful wound on the woman's Seed, but Christ in turn will inflict a mortal wound on the Serpent, crushing his head. This prophecy was fulfilled in the first instance at the cross, but will culminate when the triumphant Christ casts Satan into the lake of fire (Revelation 20:10)...."

    The New Covenant

    In times past, God spoke unto the fathers by the prophets--like Moses--but in these last days he has spoken unto us by his Son.

    Hebrews 1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
    Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

    Deuteronomy 18:17 And the LORD said unto me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken.

    Deuteronomy 18:18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.

    Deuteronomy 18:19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.


    Matthew 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

    Matthew 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.


    Jeremiah 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a NEW covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
    Jeremiah 31:32 NOT according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:

    Jeremiah 31:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

    Jeremiah 31:34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

    If that first covenant with Moses had been faultless, then there would be no need for the new covenant that Jeremiah spoke of (ref. Heb 8:7). When God spoke of a new covenant, he made the first one old--

    Hebrews 8:13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old.

    Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.
    Jesus Christ is the mediator of that new, better, everlasting covenant established upon better promises.

    Hebrews 12:24 ...Jesus the mediator of the new covenant...
    Hebrews 8:6 ...he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.

    Hebrews 13:20 ...our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant...


    As you examine the scriptures on this page, see what the prophets themselves had to say about the man from Nazareth, the Lord Jesus Christ. Read Isaiah 53 which clearly reveals Jesus Christ as our sin bearer....

    In the Spirit of Sankofa and Peace and Love!




    As promised, I'm back:)...Great thread topic which is often not considered when reading he Bible, and leads to wide-spread biblical illiteracy. More than anything, biblical prophecy is central to its overall theme. We often don't discuss the prophecy-fulfillment issue the book presents, in Church or outside of church walls...thanks for the encouragement and Peace In,
