Fulfilled Prophecies – Part 1

By Dennis Huebshman

Not counting children below the age of accountability and the mentally incompetent that have been that way since birth, when Jesus calls His Church Home it will be about 10% of the population of the world that has left. Among the Jewish people, it’s even less with about 1% – 2% of them being Messianic, or believe Jesus is the Messiah.

This will leave a majority of today’s population to face the worst time that this earth will ever see. At least 2/3 of those who face the 7-year Tribulation will not live to see the end of it.

During Jesus’ time on this earth, none of the New Testament had been written. So, everything He referred to when quoting scripture came from the Old Testament writers. Also, prior to the birth of Christ, about 450 years had lapsed since the final book of the Old Testament had been written.

Jesus fulfilled over 108 prophecies before He left the earth. Mathematically, the odds of anyone fulfilling this amount of prophecy is staggering. Also, they were all fulfilled totally, not just in part. To give an example of what the magnitude this represents, the odds of 1 person fulfilling just 8 prophecies is 1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000 or 1 in 10 to the 16th. Power. Fulfilling 48 prophecies is 1 in 10 to the 157th. Power, and 1 person fulfilling all 108+ prophecies could only be Jesus our Lord!

The odds of 15 being fulfilled completely is substantially more than 8 which makes the Bible more reliable than any other source on record. It also insures us that what has been prophesied about the future is to be taken literally and as absolute truth.

The New Testament was written after the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus the Christ. Archeologists have found thousands of manuscripts of this event, and some are dated less than 100 years after the original letters were written. The Bible is superior by far more than any other of the ancient writings. Over the past several decades, scientific discoveries have continued to verify the Bible’s accuracy.

God gave us these prophecies to build our faith, and lead the way to His Son, Jesus, the Lamb of God slain since the foundation of the world (Revelation 13:8). My hope is you will know without any doubt, that His death and resurrection were the sacrifice for our sins, and with His death, He paid not only for our sins, but the sins of the world, (1 John 2:2). He paid for you with His precious lifeblood as the sinless, spotless Lamb of God. God chose Him for this purpose long before the world began. He was sent to earth for ALL to see, and He did this for you and Me (1 Peter 1: 19-20) God knew when He created the heavens and the earth no mortal being, born of a man and woman, could provide an acceptable sacrifice. Below are 15 prophecies that were made and when they were fulfilled.

#1 – THE MESSIAH WILL BE BORN IN BETHLEHEM. Micah 5:2 (8th. Century BC) – But you O Bethlehem Ephrathah are only a small village in Judah. Yet a ruler of Israel will come from you, one whose origins are from the distant path.

Fulfilled: Matthew 2: 1-6 – Jesus was born in the town of Bethlehem in Judea during the reign of King Herod…Herod called a meeting of the leading priests and teachers of religious law, and asked, “Where did the prophets say the Messiah would be born? In Bethlehem, they answered.”
Luke 2: 4-5, 7, 15 – And because Joseph was a descendant of King David, he had to go to Bethlehem in Judea. David’s ancient home……he took with him Mary, who was obviously pregnant. She gave birth to her first child, a son.
John 7: 42 – For the scriptures clearly state that the Messiah will be born of the royal line of David in Bethlehem the village where King David was born.

#2 – THE MESSIAH WILL BE BORN OF A VIRGIN. Isaiah 7:14 (8th. Century B.C.) – the Lord Himself will choose the sign. Look! The virgin shall conceive a child: she will give birth to a son and call Him Immanuel – God is with us.

Isaiah 9: 6-7 For a child is born to us, a son given to us. And the government will rest on His shoulders. These will be His royal titles: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. His ever expanding, peaceful government will never end. He will rule forever with fairness and justice from the throne of His ancestor David.

Fulfillment: Matthew 1: 20-23; As Joseph fell asleep, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream. “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to go ahead with your marriage to Mary. For the child within her has been conceived by the Holy Spirit, and she will have a son, and you are to name Him Jesus. He will save His people from their sins.

#3 – THE MESSIAH WILL BE A PROPHET LIKE MOSES. Deuteronomy 18:15 (about 1260 B.C.) – The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your fellow Israelites, and you must listen to that prophet. (Moses was giving instructions to the House of Israel as to what they must do to stay true to the Lord.)

Fulfillment: John 7: 40-42 – When the crowds heard Him say this, some declared “This man surely is the Prophet”. Others said, “He is the Messiah”. Scriptures clearly state the Messiah will be born of the royal line of David, in Bethlehem.

Acts 3: 20-23 – He will send Jesus your Messiah to you again for He must remain in Heaven until the time for the final restoration of all things as God promised long ago through the prophets. Moses said the Lord you God will raise up a Prophet like me from among your own people……

#4 – THE MESSIAH WILL BE TEMPTED BY SATAN – Psalm 91: 10-12 – No evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your dwelling. For He orders His angels to protect you wherever you go. They will hold you with their hands to keep you from striking you foot on a stone.

Fulfillment: Matthew 4: 5-7 – Then the devil took Him to Jerusalem to the highest point of the Temple and said, “If you are the Son of God, jump off. For the scriptures say He orders His angels to protect you. And they will hold you with their hands to keep you from striking your foot on a stone.” Jesus responded, “The scriptures also say, Do Not Test the Lord Your God.” (even satan was not adverse to using scripture, although he always twisted it to fit what he wanted.)

#5 – THE MESSIAH WILL ENTER JERUSALEM TRIUMPHANTLY – Zechariah 9:9 – Rejoice greatly, O people of Zion! Shout in triumph. O people of Jerusalem, look, your king is coming to you. He is righteous and victorious, yet he is humble riding on a donkey – even a donkey’s colt.

Fulfillment: John 12: 12-15 – Then next day, the news that Jesus was on the way to Jerusalem swept through the city. A huge crowd of Passover visitors took palm branches and went down to meet Him. They shouted Hosanna (Praise God)! Bless the One who comes in the name of the Lord! Hail to the King of Israel! Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it, fulfilling the prophesy that said “Don’t be afraid people of Israel. Look, your King is coming sitting on a donkey’s colt. (see also Matthew 21: 8-11 and Luke 19: 35-37)

#6 – THE MESSIAH WILL BE REJECTED BY HIS OWN PEOPLE – Isaiah 53: 1,3 – Who has believed our message? To whom will the Lord reveal His saving power? He was despised and rejected – a man of sorrows, acquainted with the bitterest grief. We turned our backs on Him and looked the other way when He went by. He was despised, and we did not care. (As I said in a previous post, Jesus wasn’t the popular Hollywood type.)

Fulfillment: John 12: 37-38 – But despite all the miraculous signs He had done, most of the people did not believe in Him. This is exactly what Isaiah the prophet had predicted: “Lord, who has believed our message? To whom will the Lord reveal His saving power.

We will finish the fulfilled prophecies in the next section.

Fulfilled Prophecies – Part 2 By Dennis Huebshman

Fulfilled Prophecies – Part 2
By Dennis Huebshman

Continuing with the 15 Fulfilled Prophecies as given in Part 1:

#7 – THE MESSIAH WILL BE BETRAYED BY ONE OF HIS OWN FOLLOWERS – Psalm 41: 9 – Even my close friend, whom I trusted, he who shared by bread lifted his heel against me. Psalm 55: 12-13 – It is not an enemy who taunts me – I could bear that. It is not my foes who so arrogantly insult me – I could have hidden from them. Instead, it is you – my equal, my companion and close friend. (can you feel the anguish of the writer?)

Fulfilled: John 13: 18, 21, 26 – I am not saying these things to all of you because I know so well each one of you I chose. The scriptures declare, “The one who shares my food has turned against Me” and this will soon come true… Now Jesus was in great anguish of spirit, and He exclaimed, “The truth is one of you will betray me! It is the one to whom I give the bread dipped in the sauce.” And when He had dipped it, He gave it to Judas, son if Simon Iscariot. (see also Matthew 26: 47, 49-50 and Luke 22: 21-22, 47)

#8 – THE MESSIAH WILL BE BETRAYED For 30 PIECES OF SILVER -Zechariah 11: 12-13 – so they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver….and cast them to the potter in the house of the Lord.

Fulfilled – Matthew 26: 14-16 – Then Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve disciples, went to the priests and asked, “How much will you pay me to betray Jesus to you?” And they gave him thirty pieces of silver.

Matthew 27: 3-4 – When Judas, who betrayed Him, realized that Jesus had been condemned to die, he was filled with remorse. So he took the thirty pieces of silver back to the priests and said, “I have sinned for I have betrayed an innocent man…”

#9 – THE MESSIAH TO DIE BY CRUCIFIXION WITH PIERCED HANDS AND FEET – Psalm 22: 14-16 – My life is poured out like water, and all My bones are out of joint. My heart is like melting within Me. My strength has dried up like sunbaked clay. My tongue sticks to the roof of My mouth. You have laid Me in the dust and left Me for dead. My enemies surround Me like a pack of dogs; an evil gang closes in on Me. They have pierced my hands and feet.

Zechariah 12:10 – Then I will pour out a spirit of grace and prayer on the family of David, and all the people of Jerusalem. They will look on Me whom they have pierced and mourn Him as for an only son. (It should be noted, crucifixion was not a known method of execution until the Roman empire took hold.)

Fulfilled – Mark 15:20 – When they were finally tired of mocking Him, they took off the purple robe and put His own clothes on Him again. Then they led Him away to be crucified. (Also, Matthew 27:31; John 19: 15-16)

#10 – THE MESSIAH’S BONES WILL NOT BE BROKEN – Numbers 9: 12 – They must not leave any of the lamb until the next morning, and they must not break any of its bones. They must follow all the normal regulations concerning the Passover. (remember, Jesus was the sacrificial Lamb Of God)

Fulfilled: John 19: 31-37 – So the soldiers came and broke the legs of the two men crucified with Jesus. But when they came to Jesus, they saw that He was already dead, so they didn’t break His legs. One of the soldiers however, pierced His side with a spear and blood and water flowed out. These things happened in fulfillment of the Scriptures that say, “Not one of His bones will be broken, and they will look on Him whom they have pierced.” (Psalm 34:20)

#11 – THE MESSIAH WILL DIE AS A SIN OFFERING – Isaiah 53: 5-6; 8, 12 – But He was wounded and crushed for our sins. He was beaten that we might have peace. He was whipped, and we were healed. All of us have strayed away like sheep.

Fulfillment: 1 Corinthians 15: 3-4 – I passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed on to me – that Christ died for our sins. Just as the Scriptures said. He was buried, and He was raised from the dead on the third day, as the Scriptures said.

1 Peter 2: 24 – He personally carried away our sins in His own body on the cross so we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. You have been healed by His wounds. (Also: John 1:29; Acts 10:43; Acts 13: 38-39; Ephesians 1: 7 and Revelation 1:5)

#12 – THE MESSIAH’S GARMENTS WILL BE DIVIDED BY CASTING LOTS – Psalm 22:18 – They divide My clothes among themselves and threw dice for my garments.

Fulfilled – John 19: 23-24 – When the soldiers had crucified Jesus, they divided His clothes among the four of them. They also took his robe, but it was seamless, woven in one piece from the top. They said, “Let’s not tear it but throw dice to see who gets it.” This fulfilled the Scripture that says, “They divided My clothes among themselves, and threw dice for my robe.”

#13 – THE MESSIAH WILL BE BURIED IN A RICH MAN’S TOMB – Isaiah 53:9 – He had done no wrong, and He never deceived anyone. But He was buried like a criminal; He was put in a rich man’s grave.

Fulfillment: Matthew 27: 57-60 – As evening approached, Joseph, a rich man from Arimathea who was one of Jesus’ followers went to Pilate and asked for Jesus’ body. And Pilate issued an order to release it to him. Joseph took the body and wrapped it in a long linen cloth. He placed it in his own tomb, which had been carved out of rock. Then he rolled a great stone across the entrance as he left.

And now, we are about to come to the two most important Fulfillments of all. The Resurrection and the Ascension.

#14 – THE MESSIAH WILL BE RAISED FROM THE DEAD – Psalm 16:10 – For you will not leave my soul among the dead or allow your Godly One to rot in the grave. Psalm 30:3 – You brought me up from the grave, O Lord, You kept me from falling into the dark pit of death.

Fulfilled: Acts 2: 27-31 – For you will not leave My soul among the dead or allow your Holy One to rot in the grave. Dear Brothers, think about this. David wasn’t referring to himself when he spoke these words, for he died and was buried, and his tomb is still here among us. But he was a prophet, and he knew God had promised with an oath one of David’s own descendants would sit on David’s throne as the Messiah. David was looking into the future and predicting the Messiah’s resurrection. He was saying the Messiah would not be left among the dead and His body would not rot in the grave.

1 Corinthians 15: 17-20 – And if Christ has not been raised, then your faith is useless, and you are still under condemnation for your sins. But the fact is that Christ has been raised from the dead and He has become the first of a great harvest of those who will be raised to life again.

#15 – THE MESSIAH WILL SIT AT GOD’s RIGHT HAND – Psalm 110:1 – The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit in honor at My right hand until I humble Your enemies making them a footstool under Your feet.

Fulfilled – Mark 16:19 – When the Lord Jesus had finished talking with them, He was taken up into heaven and sat down in the place of honor at God’s right hand.

Acts 2: 32-36 – This prophecy was speaking of Jesus, whom God raised from the dead, and we are all witnesses of this. Now He sits on the throne of the highest honor in Heaven, at God’s right hand. And the Father, as He had promised, gave Him the Holy Spirit to pour out upon us just as you see and hear today. For David himself never ascended into heaven, yet he said, “The Lord said to my Lord, sit in honor at My right hand until I humble Your enemies making them a footstool under your feet.” So, let it be clearly known by everyone in Israel that God has made this Jesus whom you crucified to be both Lord and Messiah. (Also Hebrews 10: 12-13)

From here, the next two major events to take place are the “taking of the Church from this earth” or Rapture, and then the final “7 weeks spoken of by Daniel”. The Rapture is for ALL believers as told in 1 Thessalonians 4: 16-18. Only those who have accepted Jesus as their Savior will go with Him in the Rapture. Those left behind will be subject to the worst 7 years this earth has ever seen, and this is so unnecessary.

It’s not a question of religion as Jesus had the most problems with the religious leaders of His day. It’s about accepting Him as our Savior, and we have to do this ourselves. No One Else Can Do It For us!

An event took place that is told of in several places in the Bible, and the date was May 14, 1948. Israel once again became a nation after over 2000 years of not existing. God’s chosen people have always been in the world, but were scattered because of their disobedience to the Him. This is believed to have started an end-time clock ticking to the Rapture, the 7-year Tribulation and finally Jesus actual return to the earth.

John 14:6 – Jesus said I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except by me.

Also, Acts 2:21 and Romans 10:13 – ALL who call on the name of the Lord will be saved.

There is no third option. Accept Jesus or be separated from Him forever. That’s everyone’s Choice.

Maranatha!

Thank you, while we do know many of these prophecies, it is always good to read & refresh and maybe glean a new understanding, too.
