A) INTRODUCTION

 

 

Nostradamus is touted as the most famous predictor of future events in all of mankind.  Yet, it is honestly argued that only five (5) to ten (10) percent of his predictions have been fulfilled with 100 percent certainty.  And most of those have either missed the mark by a wide margin or have been somewhat subjective and open to interpretation.

 

First, we must understand that the way the New Testament writers used the term, Christ “fulfilled” whatever, is not used as “Predictive Prophecy.”  An example being, Nostradamus prophesied that “there was going to be a flood in such a such a year.”  And Wow, it happened.  But that is not how the New Testament writers looked at fulfilled prophecy.  When Joseph was told to return to Israel from Egypt, the Scripture was fulfilled, “out of Egypt have I called My Son.”  That saying is in the Book of Hosea, Chapter 11, verse 1.  However, it is speaking of the Exodus, with Hosea just recounting Israel’s history.  It is not speaking of a personage that a particular person was going to fulfil (you may notice I do not sight this so-called prophecy in my chart).  Then what is Matthew meaning by saying Christ fulfilled this?  The meaning is that Jesus filled Israel’s history up with meaning.  Just as God calls His people out of Egypt, He calls us out of Babylon (in Revelation), which in essence, is sinfulness.  Keep in mind that Messianic prophecy is more art that science; and more poetry than math.

Consider yourself to be a “teller” or “foreseer” of future events.  You are going to predict that ten years from now, in that specific year, an individual would be born in New York City.  You predict that this individual would be from a certain family.  Then you predict that the mayor of that city will kill all male babies born being 2 years or younger.  At Twelve years of age, you predict that this individual, who escaped the baby killings, would speak to the leaders of New York City.  This individual would then be obscure until, being about 30 years of age, this individual would perform many miracles in New York City and the surrounding areas in the State of New York.  You then begin to specify each miracle and how they would take place; about 100 of them.  You then specify how the leaders of New York City hate this individual and plot to kill Him.  You then describe how he will be killed, where he will be killed, and when he will be killed.  If you haven’t figured out I’m referencing Jesus, and there is NO WAY anyone could make these prophecies other than God, read on.

 

B) FULFILLED PROPHECIES OF CHRIST’S FIRST COMING

 

 

There is said to be “over 300 prophecies” made about future prophetic events concerning the Messiah’s First Coming.  If you count the individual prophecies, I have found 197 (listed below).  If you count all of the prophecies, with the duplications by other prophets, I have found 471 (Better displayed by seeing this Bible Study in “Chart Form,” via E-Mail; impossible in this manner).  For any one person to fulfill even 10% of these would be a near impossibility.  In fact, the probability of a man fulfilling 12% of these is as astronomically impossible as the “Big Bang Theory” being true; or for a needle being found in a haystack the size of Texas and four feet tall.  Yet Jesus Christ fulfilled every last one of them to the letter.

 

The above FACT alone should convince even the stoutest of sceptics that there is a God; and silence any Biblical disbelievers.  But alas, when the truth does not settle any argument, the party cannot be reasoned with no matter what.

 

“Christ Coming at the time and in the manner which He did was a direct and complete fulfillment of prophecy.  The evidence of this, given to the world through the testimony of the apostles and that of their contemporaries, is among the strongest proofs of the Christian faith. . . The Christian world have a full and complete chain of evidence running through both the Old and the New Testament; in the one pointing to a Saviour to Come, and in the other fulfilling the conditions of that prophecy.  All this is sufficient to establish the faith of those who are willing to believe.”  3SP:182.

 

The following are prophecies of the “Messiah,” with the Old Testament prophecy listed first (with the first time it appears alone with other Books [prophets] who stated the same prophecy) -- than its fulfillment in the life of Jesus Christ (Only a few references in the New Testament are given; not all).

 

ONE LAST NOTE:  Without the Coming of the “Messiah,” most of these prophecies do not make sense.
