Messianic Prophecy Fulfilled By Jesus Christ - Part 1 of 4
Messianic Prophecy Fulfilled By Jesus Christ - Part 1 of 4
Messianic = Pertaining to the Messiah - The Saviour - Jesus Christ - God The Son.
Prophecy = Details and events foretold before they happen, specifically in God's Word - the Holy Bible.
The below is impossible without the works of Almighty God. To get you started, Almighty God is a Holy Trinity: God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ - Also called The Word), and God the Holy Spirit - YET THE THREE ARE ONE. You will soon find out that Jesus Christ is also the Promised Messiah and Anointed King of Israel, and the living Lord and Saviour of all men who place their faith in Him as Lord over their lives. Jesus Christ is - in fact - God - the Creator - along with God the Father and God the Holy Spirit. He was made manifest in the flesh in a most supernatural way - born of a virgin. This is a brief and is not intended to be an in-depth study. I'm hoping that you will use this material for your own study and find out who Jesus Christ really is - VERY GOD. Jesus Christ is Alive today, and He is NOT in the form of a man now. He was in the form of a man when He was crucified on the cross for the sins of mankind. He did die, but He was resurrected from the dead on the third day, and He ascended back to Heaven. This was the First Coming of Christ about 2,000 years ago. The Second Coming of Christ is in our near future.
Hundreds of details and events about the Messiah were foretold in the Old Testament of the Holy Bible. Not only were they foretold centuries before they happened - they were foretold by numerous writers - of various Books - over 1,000 years. These details and events are known as Messianic Bible Prophecy, and Jesus Christ did fulfill many of them - so many that there is no reason to doubt still future Messianic Prophecy that Jesus Christ will also fulfill. The probability that one Messianic Prophecy would be fulfilled is slim - much less hundreds. However, Messianic Prophecies are one type of proof that the Holy Bible is God's Word. It must be supernatural. Otherwise, it would be impossible for a group of men writing a book over centuries to foretell so many things that came to pass perfectly. The Holy Bible proves itself in many other ways, but the Messianic Prophecies are one of the most interesting ways.
Jesus Christ is the most written about person in the history of mankind, so He is obviously part of recorded history - much more than just in the Holy Bible. However, we don't give other books the amount of trust that we do the Holy Bible. No other book can be compared to it in terms of beauty, accuracy, and timeless information that applies today just as it did thousands of years ago. The Holy Bible was written by men who were inspired by God for what they wrote. There is no other possible explanation for such an accurate and flowing masterpiece written by many over a long period of time. There is agreement and proof from cover to cover because it is God's Word. Our future is also foretold in the Holy Bible, but the purpose here is to illustrate Messianic Prophecy that was fulfilled.
* Old Testament - Blue
** New Testament - Green
I want to start with two longer portions of Scripture from the Old Testament that describe the suffering and Glory of Christ. Psalms 22 and Isaiah 53 are amazing prophecies that mirror the Gospels. Make the comparisons yourself and try to count how many Messianic Prophecies were fulfilled by Jesus Christ in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. After the two longer portions of Scripture, additional Scripture will be given in Old Testament Book order. You do some study yourself and discover the significance. If you need some help, ask a stronger and more mature Christian. This is just a small sampling of fulfilled Bible Prophecy.
* Psalms 22:1-31 To the chief Musician upon Aijeleth Shahar, A Psalm of David. My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring? 2 O my God, I cry in the daytime, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent. 3 But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel. 4 Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them. 5 They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded. 6 But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people. 7 All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying, 8 He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him. 9 But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts. 10 I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother's belly. 11 Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help. 12 Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round. 13 They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion. 14 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels. 15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death. 16 For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet. 17 I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me. 18 They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture. 19 But be not thou far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste thee to help me. 20 Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog. 21 Save me from the lion's mouth: for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns. 22 I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee. 23 Ye that fear the LORD, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel. 24 For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him; but when he cried unto him, he heard. 25 My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear him. 26 The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the LORD that seek him: your heart shall live for ever. 27 All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee. 28 For the kingdom is the LORD'S: and he is the governor among the nations. 29 All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship: all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him: and none can keep alive his own soul. 30 A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation. 31 They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done this.
* Isaiah 53:1-12 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.
