The Prophecies Concerning The Coming of Jesus Left No Doubt, But That He was the Christ.

jesus

The Old Testament was written over a period of 1000 years. During that time God gave his prophets over 300 prophecies concerning the messiah’s coming. In the Old Testament, there are 60 major messianic prophecies and 270 minor prophecies or conditions that were fulfilled by one person. That person was Jesus Christ.

  We can track the lineage of Jesus in Genesis from Adam to his birth. Genesis and Jeremiah both specified his ancestry; he would be a descendant of Shem, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, from the tribe of Judah, the house of David. In Isaiah 7:14 we’re told that the Messiah will be born of a virgin. In Micah 5:2 we’re told that he would be born in Bethlehem. Isaiah 53 pictures a messiah who would suffer and die for the sins of Israel and the World. This was 700 years before Jesus. Isaiah predicted the Jews would reject him and the Gentiles would believe in him. Psalms 22 foretold the crucifixion of Jesus 800 years before crucifixion was invented by the Romans.

Angels in the War


I find it interesting that there are so many accounts of angels coming to the aid of allied forces against the Germans in World War One. Here are just a couple:

 Near Mons, France where outnumbered British troops had been fighting for days without relief. Defeat seemed inevitable when firing on both
sides suddenly stopped. British troops saw “four or five wonderful beings, much bigger than men,” between themselves and the Germans. These men were bare-headed, wore white robes and seemed to float rather than stand. Their backs were to the British and their arms and hands were outstretched toward the Germans. The horses ridden by German cavalrymen became terrified and stampeded off in every direction.

 In another battle later in the war, British soldiers were surrounded by German troops and matters seemed hopeless. Suddenly everything grew strangely quiet. Then “the sky opened with a bright shining light, and figures of luminous beings appeared between the British and German lines.” German troops retreated in disorder, allowing the Allied forces to reform. German prisoners captured that day, were asked why they surrendered, they said “But there were hosts and hosts of you!”

Who is Jesus?

    As believers in Christ, we know that Jesus lived, was crucified, rose again, and is ALIVE Today. However, for the unbeliever, or those that have doubts, there is an enormous amount of proof documenting the life of Christ.

    The Bible contains over 300 fulfilled prophecies concerning the life of Jesus. Mathematician professor Peter Stoner and his class determined that for someone to fulfill 48 of these prophecies, would be 1 in 13 trillion. In other words, totally impossible, if He was not the Son Of God.

    The life of Jesus can actually be reconstructed apart from the Bible by all the writings, sermons and commentaries by early church fathers and writers. Material that is so old that it actually predates the gospels themselves.

    There are also many secular writers and historians from the time of Christ that documented His life as well. Such as Josephus, a well-known Roman 1st-century political historian. While not a follower of Jesus himself, he wrote a lengthy section about Jesus.

    One passage reads:

“Now about this time there lived Jesus, a wise man if indeed one ought to call him a man. For he was one who wrought surprising feats and was a teacher of such as accept the truth gladly, He won over many Jews and many of the Greeks. He was the Christ. When Pilate, upon hearing him accused by men of the highest standing condemned him to be crucified, those who had in the first place come to love him did not give up their affection for him. On the third day, he appeared to them restored to life, for the prophets of God had prophesied these and countless other marvelous things about him. And the tribe of Christians, so called after him, has still to this day not disappeared”.

Will We Know People in Heaven

Many people wonder if we will recognize our friends and family when we get to heaven.  We will not only recognize our loved ones and friends, but we will know everyone in heaven. We will enjoy fellowship with people from all walks of life and from the time of Adam to the present time. Can you imagine meeting the saints of the Old and New Testament or of the generations before us.

 At the mount of transfiguration, Peter and John recognized Elijah and Moses even though they had never seen them before and they were separated by hundreds of years; (Luke 9:30-32). This is how it will be in heaven. We will recognize everyone else and will feel as one with them.

For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. (1 Corinthians 13:12)

We will leave our sinful nature behind, and we will instead be filled with the spirit of God. Therefore we will love each other as God intended us to. We will be like one big family in heaven. Parents, Grandparents, children and babies will be reunited and will all recognize each other. Like I said before it will be a family reunion like no other.

The Bible

The Bible contains thousands of prophecies concerning events that were fulfilled hundreds and thousands of years later, proving its divine source, for only God can predict the future. In Isaiah, God said He has made know the future to us:

    “I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me. I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come…… What I have said, that I will bring about; what I have planned, that I will do.” (Isaiah 46:10-11).

 Why would God make known the future to us?  Why would He make so many predictions about the future of the world? First, because He wants us to know, beyond all doubt, that He is God and there is no other. Secondly, He wants us to be prepared for what is to come.  

It is a difficult matter for the critic to deny prophecy once it has been fulfilled, for prophecy fulfilled becomes part of history for all to see.

Archaeologists continue to find cities and places mentioned in the Bible, such as in 2004 when they discovered the Siloam Pool where Jesus healed the blind man. In fact, all archaeology finds have agreed with the historical biblical accounts as recorded in the Bible. There has not been a single artifact or discovery made that would disprove what is written in The Word of God.

Dr. J.O. Kinnaman declared, “Of the hundreds of thousands of artifacts found by archaeologists, not one has ever been discovered that contradicts or denies one word, phrase, clause, or sentence of the Bible, but always confirms and verifies the facts of the Biblical record.”

The supposedly great books of other religions—including the Vedas of the Hindus; the Zend Avesta of Zoroastrians, the Confucian texts, the Tripitaka of Buddhism, the Koran of Islam, and the Book of Mormon—–do not have any prophecy fulfillment or archaeological finds to support them.
