PROPHECIES of JESUS
BEING the MESSIAH !
The purpose of this study is to show how the Old Testament Scriptures speak or testify of Jesus or Yeshua as it is pronounced in Hebrew. The Bible teaches us that there is coming a STRONG DELUSION that many will believe because they will not believe the TRUTH in order to be SAVED.I believe this strong delusion will be different for different people, but I also believe that there will be two main categories which this strong delusion can be found.
One of these strong delusions I clearly show with scripture in the Old Testament PROPHESYING of this event in my study "WHAT does the BIBLE say about the YEAR 2012?". I believe this is a must read for every Christian, but for now I want to focus on what God has laid on my heart at this moment. So then, the the other STRONG DELUSION is the so called PEACEFUL religion of ISLAM. For some of you Christians who are contemplating converting to the faith of Islam do you KNOW that Muslims do NOT believe that Almighty God has a SON. If not, BEFORE you make this fatal decision please read the study "WHAT IS THE MARK OF THE BEAST?"
Now to YOU my dear Muslim brothers and sisters and as well to my Christian brothers and sisters who may be considering to convert to Islam I write this study to PROVE to YOU, who are seeking the TRUTH, I want you to KNOW WHAT IS the TRUTH. The Holy Bible is the ONLY word of TRUTH, because the Holy Bible is the ONLY book that FORETELLS of FUTURE events that have over and over come to pass, which further proves that EVERY thing else that is PROPHESIED will ALSO come to pass.
Therefore DO NOT BE DECEIVED !
of ALMIGHTY GOD
having a SON whose NAME is
Jesus told the Jews who were not receiving his words and teaching as the TRUTH that they themselves searched to scripture in hopes of ETERNAL LIFE and they very scripture themselves PROPHESIED of Jesus as their coming MESSIAH that they were looking and anticipating that he should come.
Please read John 5:37-40 which teaches us that Jesus has given us the words that will lead us to obtain ETERNAL LIFE in the world to come.
38. And you have not his word abiding in you:(WHY? Why doe these people NOT have God's word abiding or living in them?) FOR (or BECAUSE) whom he has SENT, him you believe NOT. (In other words, they word NOT BELIEVE in Jesus because they did NOT KNOW the WITNESS that was GIVEN to them of Almighty God HIMSELF in the SCRIPTURES)
(or speak) of ME.(In other words the ENTIRE Bible POINTS to Jesus as the ONLY WAY to OBTAIN ETERNAL LIFE!)
So then, the SCRIPTURES in the Old Testament speak or TESTIFY of JESUS being the SON of Almighty God and the ONE he has CHOSEN to be the SAVIOR of mankind.
You see, the Jews THINK they have eternal life simply because they are the descendents of Abraham. Some Muslims also believe that because they are descendents of Abraham and ISHMAEL that they too THING that they will receive eternal life particularly if they KILL Christians and Jews are die themselves in this JIHAD or CAUSE for their god ALLAH. Muslims THINK that the word of truth is their Quran, which teaches them to consult Christians who read the BOOK speaking of the Holy Bible the ONLY PURE word of TRUTH.
Jesus HIMSELF says is John 14:6 that he is the WAY, the ONLY WAY to Almighty God the Father, and goes on to say that Jesus is the TRUTH, and that anything other than the TRUTH which Jesus teaches us from the word of TRUTH, the Holy Bible will NOT lead to God, and then John says of Jesus that he is the LIFE, and that ONLY THROUGH JESUS can anyone OBTAIN ETERNAL LIFE.
For a deeper understanding of what this verse means in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of Almighty God, the Father please read the study "I AM THE WAY" What did Jesus MEAN?
But for now I want you to read in Acts 4:9-12 where we see that the NAME of Jesus is the ONLY NAME under heaven whereby or through that men or mankind can be saved.
In other words, NO man, or woman will be saved by the NAME of ALLAH. And NO man of woman will be saved by the NAME of BUDDHA. And NO man will be saved by the NAME of your church denomination. And NO man or woman will be saved for believing in nothing such as atheism or being an agnostic.
Jesus is the ONLY NAME under heaven whereby ANY man or woman shall be saved!
"Be it KNOWN unto you ALL, and to all the people of Israel, that BY the NAME of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you CRUCIFIED, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.
The Jews rejected Jesus and din not receive his words as being the TRUTH and God turn to the Gentiles in order to provoke the Jews to jealousy and when Jesus returns they will recognized Jesus as the head cornerstone, their Messiah.
The Muslims reject Jesus as being the SON of God as well as rejecting that Jesus was crucified on the cross for their sins.
And many other people reject Jesus, because they do not simply make the CHOICE by FAITH to BELIEVE the WORDS of the Holy Bible.
Consider simply by mere LOGIC of the ODDS of ALL these prophecies written in the Bible about Jesus hundreds and even more than a thousand of years BEFORE Jesus was ever born being FULFILLED by just ONE man! For the statistical odds just click on the word on this link to take you to the study "The ODDS of JESUS FULFILLING SCRIPTURE!"
The first prophecy we will look at is found in Genesis 3:15, which FORETELLS that Jesus will be born of the seed of a woman.
Or in other words, that the CHRIST or the Messiah, the ANOINTED ONE that Almighty God chose to be the SAVIOR of mankind would be a man, a human being.
"And I (Almighty God) will put enmity between you (speaking of Satan) and the woman (speaking of Israel), and between your seed and her SEED; it (this enmity speaking of Jesus the CHRIST being the SEED of a WOMAN) shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel."
Here we see that Jesus will not only be born of a woman, as in the Messiah would be a human being, but also we see that Jesus would be born in the LINEAGE of the WOMAN Israel. Part of the fulfillment of this prophecy is found in Galatians 4:4, which says,
You see ISRAEL or the Jews were there ONLY people at this TIME in history that served the ONLY TRUE Almighty God and followed his LAW. The people called Israel by Almighty God were his CHOSEN people at the time that Jesus was born. So then not only was it FORETOLD that Jesus would be born of a physical woman, but also that Jesus would be of the woman Israel.
Then in Genesis 49:7-12 we see that this prophecy of Jesus being in the lineage of Israel even becomes more specific and FORETELLS also that Jesus will be from the tribe of Judah.
"JUDAH, you are he whom your brethren shall praise: your hand shall be in the neck of your enemies (showing that Jesus would have many enemies that would seek to kill him); your father's children shall bow down before you.
11. Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass's colt unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes:(foretelling the wrath of Almighty God executed by his SON Jesus)
We see the FULFILLMENT of this prophecy in Matthew chapter 1 and in Luke chapter 3 we can see that Judah is in line of the the linage that Jesus is born. And then in Revelation 5:5 we see that the Lamb that was SLAIN is called the LION of the TRIBE of JUDAH.
Then in Revelation 5:6-10 we see that this LION of the Tribe of Judah is the LAMB that was SLAIN who was the ONLY ONE that was found to be WORTHY to open the seals of the book that was in the hand of Almighty God the one who sits upon the throne.
"6. And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a LAMB as it had been SLAIN, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth (speaking of the seven churches that testify of Jesus and his teachings).
7. And HE (The LAMB that was SLAIN from before the foundation of the world who we KNOW is speaking of Jesus the SON of Almighty God) came and took the book out of the right hand of him (speaking of Almighty God) that sat upon the throne.
8. And when he (Jesus) had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the LAMB, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odors, which are the prayers of saints.
9. And they sung a new song, saying, YOU (referring to Jesus, the LAMB of Almighty God the was SLAIN for the atonement of sins) are WORTHY to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: (WHY? Why was Jesus found to be WORTHY to execute judgment upon the DISOBEDIENT to the GOSPEL of God?) FOR (or BECAUSE) you were SLAIN (or CRUCIFIED as an INNOCENT man not found worthy of death or guilty of breaking any law that demands death as the punishment. And BECAUSE Jesus was WITHOUT SIN and was CRUCIFIED without cause he was GIVEN by Almighty God as a ransom for all of mankind as his reward), and have REDEEMED us to God BY YOUR BLOOD out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
For a deeper understanding of this subject of Jesus being the LAMB that was SLAIN from BEFORE the foundation of the world please read the study "GOD'S PLAN OF SALVATION!" But for now let us continue looking at the prophecies of Jesus in the Old Testament.
Isaiah 9:6,7 also FORETELLS of this coming child Jesus.
"For unto us a child is BORN, unto us a SON (speaks of Jesus not only be a male child, but also the SON of Almighty God) is GIVEN (John 3:16 tells us that Almighty God, the Father, SO LOVED the world that he has GIVEN to us, all of mankind, his SON to redeem all who BELIEVE on Jesus and follow his teachings from their sins): and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
7. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this."
We see the FULFILLMENT of this throughout the gospels but is in Acts 4:24-31 we see Jesus being called YOUR holy CHILD JESUS referring to Jesus being the SON of Almighty God himself.
28. For to do whatsoever your hand and your counsel determined before to be done. (In other words, Almighty God had this all PLAANED OUT BEFORE he ever created mankind. Again please see the study "GOD'S PLAN OF SALVATION)
The word of TRUTH also foretold that Jesus would be BORN of a VIRGIN in Isaiah 7:14 that CLEARLY prophesies that Almighty God HIMSELF will give a SIGN to all who believe by having HIS SON be BORN of a VIRGIN.
We see this prophecy being FULFILLED in Luke 1:26-35, which says,
35. And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon you, and the power of the Highest shall over shadow you: therefore also that holy thing which shall be BORN of YOU shall be called the SON of God."
Now some may say the prophecy says that his NAME shall be called IMMANUEL and NOT Jesus. We see in Matthew 1:22,23 that that the Son of the VIRGIN named Mary was told by the angel Gabriel that his name shall be called EMMANUEL (or IMMANUEL), which being INTERPRETED means God WITH us.
In other words, Jesus shall be come to be called or KNOWN as a man whom God was WITH and therefore the people would know that God was with them because he sent this prophet among them. You see, Almighty God was WITH us BY being ANOINTED with the Holy Spirit of Almighty God. Please read Acts 10:38 which teaches us that Almighty God the Father was WITH his SON Jesus in that he ANOINTED his Son WITH his very own Holy Spirit. Therefore God being WITH his Son Jesus would thus also mean the God is WITH mankind wherever Jesus walked in the Earth.
"How God ANOINTED Jesus of Nazareth WITH the Holy Ghost and with power (this is WHAT the word CHRIST means): who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; FOR (or BECAUSE) God was WITH him (or Almighty God the Father was WITH his SON Jesus through the ANOINTING or the INFILLING of the Holy Spirit of Almighty God)."
This next prophecy we will look at is the one that FORETELLS the PLACE where Jesus was to be BORN.
Micah 5:1,2 teaches us where Jesus was going to be born. Did you know that Micah the prophet wrote this prophecy of Jesus being born in Bethlehem around 700 B.C. Think about the odds of him being correct out of all the hundreds and hundreds of cities and town even in that day to foretell of the exact place were Jesus was to be born!
"Now gather yourself in troops, O daughter of troops: he has laid siege against us: they shall smite the judge of Israel with a rod upon the cheek.
2. But you, Bethlehem Ephratah (Genesis 48:7 teaches us that Bethlehem and Ephrat or Ephratah are the SAME), though you be little among the thousands of Judah (not even counting all the other cities of the world), yet OUT of YOU shall he come forth unto ME that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting."
This passage of scripture written by the prophet Micah teaches us several things, but the one I want to focus upon right now is the prophecy or foretelling of the birthplace of Jesus being the LITTLE town of BETHLEHEM out of the many thousands of place that he could have been born! And not only a town named Bethlehem but SPECIFICALLY the one and only Bethlehem that was in JUDEA, which was also called the CITY of DAVID.
Now if we go to the New Testament and read Matthew 2:1-8 we will see the FULFILLMENT of the prophecy of Jesus being BORN in the city of David, the town of Bethlehem.
6. And YOU BETHLEHEM, IN the land of Juda (or Judea), are not the least among the princes of Juda: for OUT of YOU shall come a Governor, that shall RULE my people Israel.(yet to be fulfilled at the second coming of Jesus)
8. And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when you have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also."
After Jesus was born and he was yet under two years of age King Herod set out to kill all the children under two year old so he would be sure to kill the holy child Jesus. But and angel warned Joseph in a dream to flee to EGYPT. It was FORETOLD by the prophet Hosea that Almighty God would call his SON out of EGYPT.
Jesus was prophesied ALSO to be OF the seed of Abraham and that IN Jesus this SEED of Abraham would all the families of the earth be BLESSED. Please read Genesis 12:3 along with Genesis 22:1-18 where we see that because Abraham OFFERED to Almighty God his ONLY SON that now Almighty God would legally be able to OFFER his ONLY BEGOTTEN SON Jesus so that all nations would be blessed IN Jesus Christ.
2. And he said, Take now YOUR SON, your ONLY SON Isaac, whom you LOVE, and get you into the land of Moriah (which means God sees, or God has proven); and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell you of.
3. And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him.
7. And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my SON. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the LAMB for a burnt offering (or for the SACRIFICE)?
13. And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.
17. That in blessing I will bless you, and in multiplying I will multiply your seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and your seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;
We read of the FULFILLMENT of this prophecy in the New Testament book of Galatians chapter 3 verses 13,14,16 and 29 which says,
"13. Christ (or the ANOINTED ONE Jesus) has redeemed us from the curse of the law,(HOW?) being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangs on a tree (In other words Jesus being CRUCIFIED on the cross freed all who BELIEVE on him from the bondage of sin):
16. Now to Abraham and his SEED were the promises made. He saith NOT, And to seeds, as of many; but as of ONE, And to your SEED, which is Christ.(or that the BLESSING of Abraham are through FAITH in the ANOINTED ONE Jesus, the SON of Almighty God who God has PROVIDED as a LAMB SLAIN for a SACRIFICE to redeem mankind back to God) ...
Now some Muslims believe that they are Abraham's seed as well through the lineage of Ishmael, but the TRUTH of the matter is that Almighty God promised that his COVENANT would be established ONLY with the seed of ISAAC. In other words, Almighty God would bless Ishmael, but Almighty God would NOT establish his covenant with Ishmael or his descendants who some believe are the Arab people where the religion of Islam was first introduced. Please read Genesis 17:18-21 which foretells of this TRUTH.
20. And as for Ishmael, I have heard you: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation (or a nation of many people).
Please notice that Almighty God does NOT make a COVENANT with Ishmael or his descendants after him. In other words, ONLY those of the seed of Isaac shall have a covenant relationship with Almighty God. That is to say, you must be IN CHRIST Jesus in order to have a covenant relationship with Almighty God, or you must be a CIRCUMCISED Jew who KEEPS every letter of the LAW of God, which is slim to none.
Therefore SALVATION is ONLY THROUGH Jesus the SON of the living God whom the SCRIPTURES TESTIFY and speak of throughout it's pages.
We see that the linage of Jesus comes through Isaac in
Luke 3:34. And in Romans 9:7 we again see that the promise of salvation is through Isaac, which is speaking of being through his SEED that is referring to JESUS.
"NEITHER, because they are the SEED of Abraham (or NOT simply because they are of the seed of Abraham), are they ALL children: but, In Isaac shall YOUR SEED be called (again speaking of Jesus as being the prophesied SEED of Almighty God that would bring SALVATION to mankind)."
Then Hebrews 11:17-19 teaches us that Jesus whom God raised up from the dead IS the SEED of Isaac.
"By faith Abraham, when he was tried (or PROVEN of God to be FAITHFUL), offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his ONLY BEGOTTEN SON (Just like Almighty God offered up HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, Jesus to REDEEM all those who BELIEVE back to himself),
19. Accounting that God was able to raise HIM up (speaking of Jesus, the SEED of Isaac), even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a FIGURE (which means that Jesus was to be the FIRSTBORN of MANY BRETHREN, referring to ALL the BELIEVE and FOLLOW Jesus shall ALSO be raised form the dead and be given ETERNAL LIFE)."
And NOT ONLY must Jesus come out of the SEED of Isaac, but Jesus MUST ALSO come out of the SEED of JACOB!
It is PROPHESIED in Numbers 24:13-19 that Jesus ALSO comes OUT OF JACOB! This is a very important passage of scripture to me, because this prophecy, which is given as a parable is spoken forth by a Balaam who was asked by Balak to pronounce a CURSE upon God's people Israel and when he tried to do this a PROPHECY of BLESSING came out instead, because Almighty God PREVENTED Balaam from speaking a CURSE against Israel.
"If Balak would give me his house full of silver and gold, I CANNOT go BEYOND the commandment of the LORD, to do either good or bad of mine own mind; but what the LORD says, that will I speak ? (In other words, Balaam is saying, EVEN if you Balak were to give me all the gold and silver that fills your house I CANNOT speak anything other than what Almighty God has COMMANDED me to speak. EVEN if I wanted to curse Israel I CANNOT, because the Lord God Almighty is PREVENTING me to do so. And HERE is WHAT Balaam PROPHESIES:)
14 And now, behold, I (Almighty God and his Son Jesus)go unto my people (the Christians and the Jews): come therefore, and I will advertise you what this people (Jesus, his glorified saints, and the Jews) shall do to your people (referring to Satan's people, ALL those that KILL the Christians and the Jews) in the latter days.
17. I shall see HIM (speaking of Jesus), but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of JACOB, (This is a PROPHECY of Jesus the COMING King who will DESTROY those nations who are KILLING the people of Almighty God, the Christians and the Jews) and a Scepter shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of MOAB, and destroy all the children of SHETH.
So when Muslims say that they worship the SAME God as the Christians and the Jews DO NOT BE DECEIVED!
Just take a CLOSE look at the NATIONS that Jesus will FIGHT AGAINST and DESTROY when he comes again to fight for Israel! They are ALL MUSLIM NATIONS. Please read the study "WHAT IS THE MARK OF THE BEAST?" and you will clearly see that ISLAM is the ANTICHRIST and BEAST system that seeks to dominate the entire word, and change the laws so they can FREELY KILL and BEHEAD all the Christians and the Jews!
But for now let us continue with the PROPHESIES of Jesus to clearly and plainly show to all who are willing to seek the TRUTH that the ONLY word of TRUTH is the Holy Bible and NOT any other religious book making the CLAIM that they are god's word. Again the main purpose of this study is so that YOU, the seeker of the TRUTH will NOT be DECEIVED by these COMING STRONG DELUSIONS and ISLAM being one of them.
PROPHESIES of the SUFFERING and CRUCIFIXION of JESUS!
Now Islam does NOT believe that Almighty God has a SON, which we have just see many witnesses from the Holy Bible that PROPHESIED of Almighty God having a SON. And trust me when I tell you the TRUTH that there are many many MORE such prophecies. Please see the study "365 PROPHECIES of JESUS!" for more about Almighty God having a SON whom he SENT into the world to REDEEM mankind back to himself. But for now let us continue looking at some other prophecies concerning Jesus.
Islam also believes that Jesus did NOT die on the cross or that Jesus was NOT CRUCIFIED, but that another man who looked like Jesus was CRUCIFIED in his place to make it APPEAR as if it was Jesus being crucified. In other words, Muslims do NOT believe that it was JESUS or Isa as they say in the English translation of Arabic for the name of Jesus or Yeshua, who was actually CRUCIFIED on the cross. But RATHER the Quran teaches Muslims to believe that it was someone who LOOKED LIKE Jesus who was CRUCIFIED on the cross.
So then, it is to you Muslims who already follow the teaching of Islam and ALSO to you Christians who are thinking about converting to Islam that I write this study to PROVE to you that it was FORETOLD hundreds of year BEFORE Jesus was ever BORN that he would lay down his life to be CRUCIFIED of the cross for the atonement of sins for whosoever will BELIEVE and follow his words written in the Holy Bible, the ONLY word of TRUTH.
Let us begins by reading Psalm 22, which has many prophecies of Jesus suffering and being crucified on the cross. I will quote a single verse or more than one verse at a time and then give it's FULFILLMENT in the New Testament.
2 O my God, I cry in the daytime, but you hear not; and in the night season, and am not silent (or there is no silence in me).
Jesus says these very same words while he is on the cross being crucified and feeling that his God and Father has forsaken him by not answering his prayer and not coming to save him. Please read Mark 15:32-34 which clearly shows that this is Jesus the CHRIST who is being CRUCIFIED on a cross and cries out to his God and Father, My God, My God, WHY have you forsaken ME? The read from the gospel of Matthew 27:45,46, which says,
Then in verses 3-5 we see Jesus IDENTIFYING himself as being a descendant of Israel and that the God of Israel is his God, because in verse 4 he says, OUR fathers trusted in YOU speaking of the ONE TRUE Almighty God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who was given the name ISRAEL. We have ALREADY shown the linage of Jesus so I will only quote the three verses in Psalm 22.
In Psalm 22:6 we read were it is FORETOLD that Jesus would be a REPROACH of men and DESPISED of the people.
Then in Isaiah 53:3 we see another almost identical PROPHECY of Jesus.
"He (speaking of the ARM of Almighty God, his SON, Jesus) 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."
We see the FULFILLMENT of this in the LIFE of Jesus being REJECTED by his people the Jews. And The apostle Paul also say of Jesus Christ IT IS WRITTEN! Please read Romans 15:3,4, which says,
"For even CHRIST (the ANOINTED ONE Jesus) pleased not himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached YOU (speaking of Almighty God being reproached by his people the Jews) fell on ME (speaking of Jesus. In other words, whatever is reproach is done to Almighty God is also done to his SON, Jesus and whatever reproach is done to Jesus is done to Almighty God. It is just like what Jesus said to us when he was saying whatever you and I do to the LEAST of our fellow man we do it to Jesus, and what ever we do NOT do unto the least of our fellow man we also do NOT do this KINDNESS unto Jesus either).
In Psalm 22:7,8 we see that Jesus was LAUGHED to SCORN and they basically shot off their mouth so to speak mocking Jesus and they shook their head at Jesus while mockingly saying that Jesus TRUSTED in Almighty God so let his God deliver him!
7. All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,
First of all we see the FULFILLMENT of these PROPHECIES or these FORETELLING of Jesus being LAUGHED to SCORN in the gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke. When I said THESE prophecies I just wanted to make you aware that just because I am quoting mostly from the 22nd Psalm I do NOT want to leave you the impression that this is the ONLY place in the SCRIPTURES where the PROPHESIES of Jesus can be found. Please also take a look at some other places where it is foretold the Jesus would be LAUGHED to SCORN:
Isaiah 37:22 and 2 Kings 19:21,22 say the EXACT SAME thing.
"This is the WORD which the LORD has SPOKEN concerning HIM (speaking of Jesus); The virgin, the daughter of Zion, has despised you, and LAUGHED you to SCORN; the daughter of Jerusalem has shaken her head at you.
23. WHOM have you reproached and blasphemed ? And against WHOM have you exalted your voice, and lifted up your eyes on high? EVEN against the Holy One of Israel.(In other words, Almighty God is stating that WHOSOEVER MOCKS or DESPISES or REJECT MY SON ALSO REJECTS ME!)
Job 12:4 is speaking of both Job at that time and also of Jesus in the future.
Now let us take a look at the fulfillment of these prophecies in the New Testament.
So I ask you the simple question my dear Muslim brothers and sisters did your so called prophet Muhammad ever raise anyone from the dead as did this Jesus, the SON of Almighty God, has done? SHOW me the PROOF in your Quran of Muhammad raising anyone from the dead, because all I have ever read is were Muhammad MURDERED and SLAUGHTER people who would not bow down to your false God ALLAH.
So NOW ask yourself this LOGICAL question. Does it not then seem LOGICAL to you that the ONE who has been given the POWER to RAISE people from the DEAD is the ONE TRUE PROPHET that was PROPHESIED to come? Who then is the TRUE PROPHET of the ONE TRUE ALMIGHTY God? If you still say Muhammad, then you are DECEIVED! What other religion speaks of their prophet or prophets RAISING the DEAD other than CHRISTIANITY? Clearly Jesus is that PROPHET whom Almighty God promised to raise up from AMONG the BRETHREN as FORETOLD to us in Deuteronomy 15:15-22.
"The LORD your God will raise up unto you (speaking of Israel, the Jews) a PROPHET from the midst of YOU, of YOUR BRETHREN, like unto me (speaking of Moses); unto him (speaking of Jesus) you shall hearken;
16. According to all that you desired of the LORD your God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God, neither let me see this great fire any more, that I die not.
18. I (Almighty God) will RAISE them UP a PROPHET from among THEIR BRETHREN, like unto you, and will put my words in his mouth (or Almighty God HIMSELF will tell his SON Jesus what to say); and he shall speak unto them all that I (Almighty God) shall command him.
20. But the prophet, which shall PRESUME to speak a word in my name, which I have NOT commanded him to speak (like the so called prophet Mohammad), or that shall speak in the name of other gods (like the FALSE god ALLAH), even that prophet shall die.
22. When a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD has NOT spoken, but the prophet has spoken it presumptuously: YOU (my dear Muslim brothers and sisters) shall NOT be afraid of him (speaking of that FALSE so called prophet Muhammad or ANY other false prophet)."
Muslims believe that Deuteronomy 15:15-22 is a prophecy of Muhammad, but this is NOT the TRUTH, because Muhammad was NOT a JEW nor of the lineage of JACOB. Again Almighty God has NOT made a COVENANT relationship with the lineage of ISHMAEL or ESAU. The ONLY COVENANT that the ONE TRUE and ONLY Almighty God has made with any GENTILE nation is the COVENANT that is made THROUGH FAITH in his SON, Jesus. The TRUTH of the matter is that this PROPHECY in Deuteronomy 15:15-22 is a PROPHECY of Jesus the SON of Almighty Good and was FULFILLED in Acts 3:13-24 which says,
"The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob,(I do not find anywhere in the Bible that makes the statement that Almighty God is the God of ISHMAEL or ESAU as alluded to by the Quran. The God of the Bible says many times that he is the God of Abraham, Isaac,and Jacob) the God of our fathers, has glorified his Son Jesus; whom you delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go.
HEAR YOU the WORD of TRUTH my dear Muslim brothers and sisters TURN from serving your FALSE God ALLAH and BELIEVE and FOLLOW the words and teaching of Jesus the one who SUFFERED and DIED for YOU!
It was Jesus whom Almighty God ORDAINED before the
foundation of the worlds as the LAMB that was to be SLAIN as the one
perfect sacrifice once and for all time for the ATONEMENT of the sins
of mankind and RECEIVED by FAITH by WHOSOEVER BELIEVES and FOLLOWS
the teachings of Jesus written in the WORD of TRUTH, the Holy Bible.
Let us continue by reading Psalm 22:9,10
We see the fulfillment of this prophecy in the life of Jesus but mostly from other prophecies such as Jesus being knit in the womb and Jesus being TAUGHT by the Holy Spirit of Almighty God morning by morning. Please read Jeremiah 1:4-10, which is a prophecy of Jesus being called even BEFORE hi was ever conceived in the womb of his mother.
We see a FULFILLMENT of this when Jesus was an adult and taught the people in John 12:44-50 which teaches us that the WORDS that Jesus spoke and taught were from his God and Father The ONE TRUE Almighty God.
48 He (speaking of WHOSOEVER) that REJECTS me, and receives NOT my words, has one that judges him: the WORD that I have spoken , the SAME shall judge him in the last day.(WHY? Why will what Jesus the SON of Almighty God both spoke and taught JUDGE those who REJECT his teaching in the LAST DAY the Day of JUDGMENT?)
Then when Jesus was a young child of twelve years of age the scribes and Pharisees marveled at his KNOWLEDGE of the scriptures at such a young age. Please read Luke 2:40-52 which teaches us that Jesus grew in wisdom and favor of both God and man.
The FULFILLMENT of the hands and feet of Jesus being pierced as he was NAILED to the cross and his side being pierced by the spear of the soldier to see if Jesus was DEAD is found in the gospel of John 20:24-27, which says,
25. The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see IN HIS HANDS the print of the nails, and put my finger INTO the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, (into the side of Jesus where the soldier PIERCED his side with a SPEAR) I will not believe.
Then we read in Luke 24:25-47 where Jesus who was now raised from the dead appeared to his disciples an expounded to them the SCRIPTURES from Moses to the Pslams to the Prophets that spoke of how he must SUFFER and DIE and then RISE the third day, and showed them his hands and feet and did eat proving to them that he was NOT a spirit of ghost.
44. And he said unto them, These are the words which I spoke unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.
To my dear Muslim brothers and sisters can you not see that the SCRIPTURES from Moses to the prophets all speak CONCERNING JESUS the SON of Almighty God? The New Testament teaches us that if was the SUFFERING unto DEATHE on the CROSS and being RAISED from the dead that the ATONEMENT of the sins of all of mankind has been made. And NOW it is up to those who have BELIEVED this GOSPEL or this GOOD NEWS to PREACH it to wherever we go so that others may also BELIEVE and FOLLOW the teachings of Jesus unto the obtaining of ETERNAL LIFE in the world to come.
18. They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture."
The fulfillment of the soldiers parting the garments of Jesus and casting lots for his cloak is found in the gospel of John 19:23,24 right after the soldiers crucified Jesus nailing him to the cross.
"Then the soldiers, when they had CRUCIFIED Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part (or these four soldiers parted the garments of Jesus into four parts among themselves); and also his coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.
24. They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it (or tear it into parts), but CAST LOTS for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which says, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did."
It would not be fitting is I did not tell you about Isaiah 53, which is perhaps the most widely quoted of all the prophecies that TESTIFY of Jesus SUFFERING for the SINS of the people.
Isaiah chapter 53
"Who has BELIEVED our report (in other words, none of this means anything UNLESS YOU YOURSELF BELIEVE what the word of TRUTH, the Holy Bible proclaims to all who will HEAR and BELIEVE)? And to whom is the ARM of the LORD revealed (speaking of Jesus)?
2. For he (Jesus) shall grow up before him (Almighty God) as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he has no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him (Jesus did not have beauty as man portrays beauty).
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 (or Jesus was CRUCIFIED and DIED for the SINS of God's people).
10. Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he has put him to grief: when you shall make his soul an OFFERING FOR SIN, he (Almighty God) shall see his seed (or God shall KNOW who are IN Jesus Christ and have become his sons and daughters), 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 (or Almighty God shall see that the suffering of his SON shall be SUFICIENT to REDEEM mankind back to himself): by his knowledge shall my righteous servant (speaking of Jesus) justify many; for he (Jesus) shall bear their iniquities.
12. Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he (Jesus) shall divide the spoil with the strong (those who OVER COME Satan); because he has poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he (JESUS) bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors."
Any one can CLEARLY see that these PROPHECIES are ALL FULFILLED in the LIFE, DEATH and RESURRECTION of Jesus and in his soon return to the Earth to gather together a people unto Almighty God and DESTROY all those that are KILLING his people the Christians and the Jews. Please read the study "WAS JESUS CRUCIFIED?" for the passages of scriptures in the New Testament that CLEARLY show the FULFILLMENT of all these prophecies here in Isaiah chapter 53 concerning the SUFFERING unto the death on the cross for the ATONEMENT of the SINS of WHOSOEVER BELIEVES. But for now let us continue by looking at some prophecies of how Jesus was to be RAISED from the dead.
PROPHECIES OF THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS
"But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah."
Then in Luke 24:45,46 we see the FULFILLMENT of this prophecy.
In Acts 1:1 we read where Jesus HIMSELF showed himself to be RESURRECTED by many INFALLIBLE PROOFS being SEEN by many for forty days AFTER he AROSE from the GRAVE that was SEALED with a great stone and GUARDED by two Roman Soldiers to make ABSOLUTELY SURE that NONE STOLE the DEAD BODY of Jesus.
"The former treatise have I made , O Theophilus, of all that JESUS began both to do and teach,
2. Until the day in which he was taken up (or until the day Jesus ascended into heaven and was SEEN by his disciples as he was taken up) , after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen:
3. To whom also he SHOWED HIMSELF ALIVE AFTER his passion by MANY INFALLIBLE PROOFS, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:"
And in 1 Corinthians 15:44,45 we Jesus the second Adam, Jesus being given a SPIRITUAL BODY when he was RESURRECTED from the DEAD.
Jesus has been given a FLESH and BONE BODY that will never die. And Jesus has also been given the power over DEATH to RAISE from the DEAD and give them ETERNAL LIFE whosoever BELIEVES on him and OBEYS his teachings.
Please read John 5:20-29, which teaches us that EVEN as Almighty God the Father has LIFE IN HIMSELF, so has Almighty God ALSO GIVEN for his SON Jesus to have this SAME ETERNAL LIFE in himself and ALSO have the power and authority to call to the GRAVES and RAISE the DEAD to face the JUDGMENT!
"For the Father loves the SON, and shows him all things that himself does (or shows his SON what to do and then Almighty God himself does the mighty works that he has shown his son to do): and he will show him greater works than these, that you may marvel.
23. That all men should HONOR the SON, even as they honor the Father. He that honors NOT the SON honors NOT the Father which has sent him.(in other words, to all my dear Muslim brothers and sisters, if you do not HONOR Jesus as the SON of Almighty God, then you do NOT HONOR the ONE TRUE and ONLY Almighty God)
24. Verily, verily, (or Truly, truly) I say unto you, He that HEARS my word, and BELIEVES on him that sent me, has everlasting life, and shall NOT come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
25. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the DEAD shall hear the voice of the SON of God: and they that hear shall live (the NOW IS part is speaking of the SPIRITUALLY DEAD and ONLY those who HEAR shall LIVE as in be given ETERNAL LIFE. And the IS COMING part is speaking of the DAY of JUDGMENT).
29. And shall come forth (or be RESURRECTED from the DEAD); they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life (ETERNAL LIFE); and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation (eternal destruction the lake of FIRE which is the SECOND DEATH)."
Verse 24 teaches us to MARVEL NOT that Jesus the SON of Almighty God shall JUDGE BOTH the LIVING and the DEAD!
So then, to my dear brothers and sister in the Lord who may be contemplating on leaving Christianity to convert to the faith of Islam CONSIDER CAREFULLY the ONLY book in existence that FORETELLS the FUTURE with ACURACY in every prophecy, the ONLY word of TRUTH, the Holy Bible before you make that FATAL MISTAKE of choosing the FALSE god ALLAH over the ONE TRUE and ONLY Almighty God the God and Father of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
And to all my dear Muslims brothers and sisters do NOT FEAR what man shall do to your BODY for CHOOSING Jesus as your Lord and Savior, because Almighty God will give you a NEW GLORIFIED SPIRITUAL body that will never die, IF SO BE that you ENDURE unto the END to OVER COME the LIES and temptations of Satan, the Devil. Please read the study "DOES THE BIBLE TEACH THAT ONCE YOU ARE SAVED THEN YOU ARE ALWAYS SAVED?"
In closing I want you to know that this study is only a SMALL part of the many many prophecies in the Holy Bible which TESTIFY and speak of Jesus the SON of Almighty God. For a list of scripture reference of both the Old Testament prophecies and the New Testament fulfillment please see the study "365 PROPHECIES OF JESUS!" and "The ODDS of JESUS FULFILLING SCRIPTURE!"
which gives some 40 verses from the TORAH alone that I did not cover in this particular study of God's word of TRUTH the Holy Bible.
Also consider CLOSELY this prophecy found in the book of Proverbs 30:4-6 which teaches us that Almighty God HAS a SON and his NAME is JESUS or YESHUA as it is pronounce in the Hebrew language.
"Who has ascended up into heaven, or descended ? Who has gathered the wind in his fists? Who has bound the waters in a garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth?What is his name, and what is his SON'S NAME, if you can tell?
When Muhammad believed that lying spirit that appeared to him as an angel of light calling himself Gabriel and Mohammad began to teach what this evil spirit spoke to him, the Mohammad ADDED to the PURE word of the ONE TRUE and ONLY Almighty God, the God of the BIBLE.
DO NOT BE DECEIVED by this FALSE prophet Muhammad and
the FALSE teachings of Islam any longer. The Quran is NOT the true word of the
ONE TRUE Almighty God of the BIBLE. The FALSE god ALLAH is NOT the
God of the BIBLE! Please read the study "The FALSE god ALLAH is NOT the SAME ALMIGHTY GOD of the BIBLE!"
Call upon the Lord Jesus Christ while you still have the
opportunity. Go to my YouTube channel MarkAtAMatterOfTruth called The
WORD of TRUTH and watch the videos of your Muslims brother and
sisters who have seen visions of Jesus, who have searched out the
TRUTH for themselves by comparing the Quran side by side with the
Holy Bible, who have been LOVED by Christians who they were taught to
hate and who have now accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and SAVIOR
even if it cost them their life. I also have many videos about Islam being the MARK of the BEAST on my YouTube channel AMATTEROFTRUTH along with many other teaching videos that show the TRUE way to OBTAIN ETERNAL LIFE in the world to come.
My prayers are with you all!
Your brother in the Lord Jesus Christ,
