Messianic Prophecies

MESSIANIC PROPHECIES
Below are only a limited number of the hundreds of Old Testament prophecies of a Coming One or an Anointed One, which is another name in Hebrew for “Messiah.” The Old Testament prophecies that predict the coming of Messiah appear to be conflicting. This in itself has been perplexing to Jewish scholars who assumed there were two Messiahs. The one would be Messiah ben Joseph (ben means son of) who would be the suffering Messiah just as Joseph suffered. The other would be Messiah ben David who would be the King Messiah, reigning over Israel as David did when God was pleased with them and they were at peace with all their enemies.
The conflict of the two different Messiahs is resolved in Yeshua who already came as the One who suffered (His first coming), and as the One who is yet to come again (His second coming) as King. There are literally hundreds of prophecies relating to the Messiah which Yeshua has fulfilled. Those which He has yet to fulfill cannot be fulfilled until He returns and sets up His Kingdom on the earth. The prophecies state that the Messiah would save not only a righteous Israel, but other righteous people in the world “through the Jews,” which is to say through the Messiah of the Jews. Look up these prophecies in your Bible to see what God promised and how He fulfilled His promises in Yeshua. This is a wonderful way to get to know the LORD better and learn specific things about Him. It will also help you to familiarize yourself with your Bible. And such a study will help you to have faith to believe God for things in your own life and what is taking place in the world around you as you see how faithfully He fulfills what He promises.
You may want to keep a notebook to list what each of these verses means to you and what you learn through them. Such a study can be a source of fellowship between you and the LORD. This will be true if you’ve just come to know the LORD or even if you’ve known Him for years. We can never know Him too well!! There’s always more to learn about our everlasting God. Enjoy your study. May the LORD bring you much revelation whether you study this on your own or with friends in a discussion group.
