The Bible Is True
These Scriptures will help you to establish the truth of God’s Word. All prophecies are from the Jewish Scriptures.
Preservation of the Jewish people
This is what the Lord says, He who appoints the sun to shine by day, who decrees the moon and stars to shine by night, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar—the Lord Almighty is His name: “Only if these decrees vanish from My sight” declares the Lord, “will the descendants of Israel ever cease to be a nation before Me” (Jeremiah 31:35-36).
Dispersion of the Jewish people
You who were as numerous as the stars in the sky will be left but few in number, because you did not obey the Lord your God. …Then the Lord will scatter you among all nations, from one end of the earth to the other. There you will worship other gods—gods of wood and stone, which neither you nor your fathers have known (Deuteronomy 28:62,64).
Survival of the Jewish people
Yet in spite of this, when they are in the land of their enemies, I will not reject them or abhor them so as to destroy them completely, breaking My covenant with them. I am the Lord their God (Leviticus 26:44).
Formation of Israel and re-gathering of the Jewish people
In that day the Lord will reach out His hand a second time to reclaim the remnant that is left of His people…He will raise a banner for the nations and gather the exiles of Israel; He will assemble the scattered people of Judah from the four
…They will rebuild the ruined cities and live
The desert and the parched land will be glad; the wilderness will rejoice and blossom… (Isaiah 35:1).
Jerusalem: a burden for all people
I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem. On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves (Zechariah 12:2-3).
All nations will turn against Israel
I will gather all the nations to Jerusalem to
“In the whole land,” declares the Lord, “two- thirds will be struck down and perish…” (Zechariah 13:8).
Shalom with God
Do the Jewish Scriptures talk about life after death?
Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt (Daniel 12:2).
How can we awake to everlasting life? By not being separated from God. The Bible says all of us are separated from God. We read in Psalms:
All have turned aside, they have together become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one (Psalm 14:3).
And in Isaiah:
But your iniquities have separated you from your God… (Isaiah 59:2).
God gave us a way of “covering our sins” (atonement) through the sacrifice of an unblemished animal in the Temple:
…It is the blood that makes atonement for
Since the Temple was destroyed in A.D. 70, animal sacrifices for atonement are impossible. How can we have the blood of atonement today?
Jeremiah predicted a New Covenant for the house of
Israel and Judah:
“The time is coming,” declares the Lord, “when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel…and will remember their sins no more” (Jeremiah 31:31,34).
God provided this New Covenant blood of atonement through a perfect sacrificial Lamb, one called “The Messiah.” Isaiah described how to recognize Him:
Who has believed our message and to
God made sure we could recognize the Messiah by giving us over 300 identifying marks as described by the prophets of Israel.
He would be born in Bethlehem of Judah
But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for Me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times (Micah 5:2).
His ancestry was to be of the family of David
“The days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when I will raise up to David a righteous Branch….
The Gentiles will follow him
In that day the Root of Jesse will stand as a banner for the peoples; the nations will rally to Him, and His place of rest will be glorious (Isaiah 11:10).
He was to die before the Second Temple was destroyed
After the sixty-two “sevens,” the Anointed One will be cut off and will have nothing. The people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city [Jerusalem] and the sanctuary (Daniel 9:26). [The Temple was destroyed in A.D. 70.]
Since God has provided the blood of atonement through
“Messiah Yeshua, I admit that I have sinned. I believe that You have provided the blood of atonement for me. I receive You now as my Messiah and Lord. Thank You for giving me shalom with God.”
