PROPHECIES OF MESSIAH YESHUA IN THE OLD TESTAMENT

All the prophecies in T'Nakh, The Old Testament that predict the first coming of the Jewish Messiah, are fulfilled by Yeshua The Messiah.  These prophecies are confirmed in The New Testament that Yeshua is GOD Almighty, the promised Messiah, and a Priest forever after the order of Mechitzedek.  The Messianic prophecies may total as many as 450.  Our list this morning is but a few.

Messiah Yeshua is GOD, The One GOD of Creation.

The Hebrew word for God is Elohim.  Elohim is translated gods, but when speaking of the God of Israel, Elohim is translated God.  God is One, there is no other, but the God of Creation is a plural. Elohim, the God of Creation, is the Father, the Messiah, and the Holy Spirit.

GENESIS 1.1, 26, GENESIS 3.22, GENESIS 11.7, ISAIAH 6.8, MICAH 5.1 (2)

(Micah 5.2)  RULER IN ISRAEL - RULER - MAHSHALL - One Who rules and reigns as King

COME FORTH UNTO ME - PSALM 110.1  Messiah has come forth unto The LORD.  He sits at His right hand.

WHOSE GOINGS FORTH - OO MO AH TAHYVE - His origins, His beginnings

FROM OF OLD - ME KEH DEHM - from eternity, i.e., no beginning, no end - GOD

FROM EVERLASTING - OLAM MEE MAY
From the days of eternity; meaning, from eternity, having no beginning or end - GOD

Messiah is The One GOD of Creation.  As a human being, He was born in Bethlehem, but He was fully GOD.  He has no beginning or end.
                            ISAIAH 9.6, PSALM 45.6-7

New Testament confirmation

TITUS 2.13, 1 JOHN 5.20  Yeshua is the true GOD
JOHN 12.45, JOHN 14.9, JOHN 10.30

Messiah Yeshua is The Son of GOD.
PSALM 2.7, PROVERBS 30.4

New Testament confirmation

MATTHEW 3.16, 17, LUKE 1.32-33

Messiah as a human being was born from a virgin.
                            ISAIAH 7.14, LUKE 1.26-35

Messiah's first coming was at the exact time as predicted in T'Nakh.  DANIEL 9.24-26

VERSE 25  The commandment, NEHEMIAH 2.8

                            one week = 7 years
                            69 weeks = 483 years

Week in Hebrew is SHAHVUAH -  A week of seven years

VERSE 26  It took 49 years to complete the building of Jerusalem; 7 weeks = 49 years.

Plus 62 weeks = 434 years
The 434 years plus the 49 years to rebuild Jerusalem = 483 years.

Messiah Yeshua came the first time at the 483d year after the commandment in Nehemiah 2.8 to rebuild the wall in Jerusalem, and rebuild the Temple exactly as prophesied.

After the 483rd year, Messiah was killed. In 70 A.D. (C.E.) Jerusalem and The Temple were destroyed by the Romans.

And continuous wars in Israel are determined.

SUMMARY
1)  Messiah Yeshua came the first time 483 years after the commandment in Nehemiah 2.8 to rebuild the wall in Jerusalem, and rebuild The Temple.

2)  after the 69 weeks, or 483 years, Messiah was killed.

3)  then in 70 C.E./A.D., the Romans destroyed Jerusalem and The Temple.

Messiah was to be a Prophet like Moses.

Messiah would be hated for no reason.
                            ISAIAH 49.7, ISAIAH 53.3, JOHN 15.25

Messiah must be crucified.
                            PSALM 22.13-18, ISAIAH 52.13-14, ZECHARIAH  12.10, MATTHEW 27.35

                            PSALM 34.20, JOHN 19.33-36

- Messiah will be King over all the earth.
- After the 1,000 year Millennium, the children of GOD will enter into Heaven forever.

- The great white throne judgment will take place for those not found in The Book of Life.  (Revelation 20.7-15)
- There will be no more pain, sorrow, illness or death, but everlasting joy in Heaven.  (Revelation 21.22)
