Prophecies of Jesus Christ

 

“Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have  eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.”

John 5:39

 

+ Prophecies and Fulfillment +

 

     There are a host of prophecies in the Old Testament Scriptures about Messiah that were fulfilled in the person of Jesus Christ. It is estimated that there are over three hundred such prophecies that Christ fulfilled at His first advent. They are recorded for us throughout the New Testament. These detailed prophecies leave no room for error in determining who the true Messiah would be. Only the Son of God could have met the qualifications to be the Savior of the world. This article, as space permits will give several of the accounts recorded in God’s Holy Word.

 

“To him give all the prophets witness, that the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.”

- Acts 10:43

Isaiah 53

 

1: Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?

2: For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

3: He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

4: Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

5: But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

6: All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

7: He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

8: He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.

9: And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.

10: Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.

11: He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.

12: Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

 

 

“And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book: But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.”

John 20:30-31
