Proof At Last! Prophecy Fulfilled Who Is This King? Who Is This King?
WHO IS JESUS? WHO IS JESUS? The adjective~ "UNIQUE"! WHAT MAKES HIM DIFFERENT FROM OTHERS? WHAT MAKES HIM DIFFERENT FROM OTHERS? Jesus not only spoke about love and God, but He was love and He was the Son of God!
One very outstanding and unique aspect of Jesus' life is that it fulfilled literally hundreds of predictions and prophecies written in the Bible. In the first books of the Bible, over 300 such predictions about the "Messiah" or "Savior" can be found written centuries before Jesus was born. The following are only a few of them: The following are only a few of them:
Seven and a half centuries later, a young virgin in Israel named Mary was visited by the angel Gabriel, who announced to her that she would bear a Son. BORN TO A VIRGIN BORN TO A VIRGIN "The Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son" (Isaiah 7:14). "The Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son" (Isaiah 7:14).
BIRTHPLACE A full 700 years before Jesus' birth, the prophet Micah foretold the exact town where the Messiah would be born: (Micah 5:2). "You, Bethlehem, though you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth to Me the One to be Ruler in Israel, …"
TRIUMPHAL ENTRY INTO JERUSALEM TRIUMPHAL ENTRY INTO JERUSALEM... and the MULTITUDES that went before, and that followed, CRIED, SAYING, HOSANNA to the Son of David: BLESSED is He that cometh in the Name of the Lord.” ( Matt.21:2-10 ) FIVE DAYS BEFORE HIS CRUCIFIXION, JESUS RETURNED TO JERUSALEM
BETRAYAL BETRAYAL In 487 B.C., the prophet Zechariah wrote: " Then I said to them, 'If it is agreeable to you, give me my wages; and if not, refrain.' So they weighed out for my wages thirty pieces of silver. Then the LORD said to me, ‘Throw it to the potter, that magnificent price at which I was valued by them.’" " Then I said to them, 'If it is agreeable to you, give me my wages; and if not, refrain.' So they weighed out for my wages thirty pieces of silver. Then the LORD said to me, ‘Throw it to the potter, that magnificent price at which I was valued by them.’" Imagine!--Five hundred years before the event took place, God's prophet, Zechariah, predicted the exact price that Jesus' enemies would pay to His traitorous disciple, Judas! Imagine!--Five hundred years before the event took place, God's prophet, Zechariah, predicted the exact price that Jesus' enemies would pay to His traitorous disciple, Judas!. Zech 11:12-13.
HIS TRIAL HIS TRIAL FOR THE TRANSGRESSION OF MY PEOPLE was He stricken." “Will ye therefore that I RELEASE unto You the King of the Jews?” Then cried they all again, saying, “Not this Man, but Barabbas.” (John.18:39) Pilate proclaimed, “I FIND NO FAULT IN HIM.” (John.18:3) PROPHECY: (Isaiah53:8)
CRUCIFIXION Around the year 1000 B.C. David, in his prophecy gave details of a cruel and agonizing death which he himself never suffered: "I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint; my heart is like wax; it has melted within me... They pierced my hands and my feet... They divide my garments among them,...for my clothing they cast lots." (Psalm 22:14-18).
"I am poured out like water... my heart is melted within me.". "All my bones are out of joint.". "Dogs have surrounded me; the congre- gation of the wicked has enclosed me.". "They pierced my hands and my feet." "They divide my garments among them, and for my clothing they cast lots."
HIS BURIAL HIS BURIAL "And He made His GRAVE with the WICKED, and with the RICH in His DEATH." FULFILMENT: JESUS DIED AS A WICKED MAN IN THE EYES OF THE WORLD, And after His DEATH "A RICH MAN... named Joseph... went to Pilate, and begged the BODY OF JESUS.... And LAID IT IN HIS OWN NEW TOMB "- - (Isa.53:9) PROPHECY:
HIS RESURRECTION HIS RESURRECTION "For thou wilt not LEAVE My soul in HELL; neither wilt thou suffer thine HOLY ONE to see CORRUPTION” (Psalm16:10) As the angel said to the mourners who came to Jesus' tomb, "He is not here, but is risen.... Why seek ye the living among the dead?” Luke 24:6,5)
The fulfillment of all these Old Testament prophecies, given many centuries before He was born, describing in detail His birth, His life, His work, His death and His resurrection, cannot be denied by any sincere seeker of truth. But a mere MENTAL, intellectual acceptance of these facts is not enough. But a mere MENTAL, intellectual acceptance of these facts is not enough. Ask Him to come into your heart, forgive you for all the wrong you've done, and fill your life with His Love, peace and joy.--And He WILL!
“This Jesus of Nazareth, without money and arms, conquered more millions than Alexander, Caesar and Napoleon. Without science and learning He shed more light on things human and things divine than all philosophers and scholars combined. Without the eloquence of schools, He spoke such Words of Life as were never spoken before or since, and produced effects which lie beyond the reach of orator or poet. Without writing a single line, He set more pens in motion, and furnished themes for more sermons, orations, discussions, learned volumes, works of art and songs of praise than the whole army of great men of ancient and modern times.”
