The Prophecies of the Messiah: Prophecy 1

Immediately after the fall of man, God promises a Savior—who will make the redemption of all people possible.

Old Testament Prediction:

Genesis 3:15a “And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel.”

New Testament Fulfillment:

Luke 1:35 “And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God.”

Matthew 1:18-20 “Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not wanting to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly. But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.

1 John 3:8 He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.

Hebrews 2:14-15 Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, 15. and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.


The creation of man is a great mystery. How we came to the earth and the reason for our existence, are two of the most extraordinary questions of mankind. Many scientists today will tell us that we are a cosmic accident. In the beginning there was nothing and then suddenly a tiny, densely compacted mass of energy exploded into a universe. Stars formed, Galaxies clustered, planets took shape and man evolved from a single cell—over billions of years. This all happened as a result of millions of fortuitous accidents.

The Bible is unique in that it offers mankind an intellectual answer that makes sense. In the beginning, an intelligent Being of unlimited power, created the heavens and the earth. Through infinite wisdom, God assembled all the necessary components of the universe, adjusted them to allow for life, and brought forth all living things upon the earth.

Criticism of Messianic Prophecy


Criticism is often put forth regarding whether certain scriptures from the Hebrew scriptures, are in fact prophetic. From the vantage point of the Jew who does not believe that Jesus is the Messiah, none of the events of Jesus life, death, and resurrection are held as fulfillments of the ancient prophets.

The atheist and agnostic refuse to believe that anything in the Bible is credible; particularly the application of scriptures which assert that Jesus is the object of these verses.

What we find, is that those who are predisposed to a non belief in God, or doubt the validity of scripture as God’s word, are less likely to believe that the Prophecies of the Messiah are genuine. Continue reading “Criticism of Messianic Prophecy”

How Messianic Prophecy is Determined


Upon a search of the internet for Messianic Prophecies, there are several sources that assert that the Bible does not contain prophecies that were fulfilled by Jesus Christ. Further, critics of Hebrew prophecy claim that none of the claimed prophecies of the scriptures were intended as prophetic during their writing.

These arguments are primarily asserted, due to a lack of knowledge in Biblical prophecy and Hermeneutic application. Continue reading “How Messianic Prophecy is Determined”

God Tells Us the Precise Day Israel Would Become a Nation and Jerusalem Her Capital


Incredibly, God tells us through the Prophet Ezekiel, the precise day that Israel would once again become a nation—after the Jews were disbursed all over the earth for 2,000 years. Add to this amazing fact, The Lord also revealed the precise day that Jerusalem would become the capital of Israel. Continue reading “God Tells Us the Precise Day Israel Would Become a Nation and Jerusalem Her Capital”

What God Requires For Eternal Life


When a person wrongs us, we may choose to forgive his error and release him from the debt he owes us.

In order for God to have a just reason to forgive, a penalty must be paid by the person who committed the wrong. According to the law of God: Without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness of sins (Hebrews 9:22).

Jurisprudence requires that a penalty be paid when a crime has been committed. To enact laws without the enforcement of those laws would constitute injustice. God has said, The soul that sins will die; therefore, when we sin, the law requires that we must die.

Prophecy Is Not Predicting the Future, It Is Stating What Has Already Happened


Prophecy is an advanced look at what has already taken place.

This is the unique capacity that God alone possesses. Only an eternal being, who has Himself made all that exists, can experience everything that is yet to happen, as if it has already taken place. For God, there is no future; all things exist in the present.

When all of the linear events in the history of man on earth have concluded, they will be funneled down into a single arrival at eternity. In heaven, every event of human history has already happened, and you and I who love Jesus are already there with the Lord in heaven. Only as we live out our lives and wait for the conclusion of these events—in the process of time, have these events yet to take place.

God speaks of things in prophecy as if they already exist, because they do. Continue reading “Prophecy Is Not Predicting the Future, It Is Stating What Has Already Happened”

How Could The Death of One Man Pay For the Sins of the World?


The answer is: the life of this one man would have to be of infinite value.

How could an ordinary human being have a life of infinite value? He would have to originate before all other things and be the source of all that exists. This is precisely what we find in Jesus. He existed before anything else was created, and He is the source of all things which exist. Continue reading “How Could The Death of One Man Pay For the Sins of the World?”

Evidence for God: What Kind of Proof are You Looking For?


When beginning a conversation with those who identify themselves as an atheist, the common objection that is stated for their unbelief in God is the assertion that there is no evidence which proves His existence.

When this statement is made, we must ask: “what kind of evidence are you looking for?

The atheist will usually tell you: “empirical, scientific, testable, evidence.”

This declaration leaves the intelligent person quite perplexed. The evidence for God is quite overwhelming. It becomes clear during these conversations with the atheist that evidence is not the real hindrance to their unbelief. We find that the will of the person had firmly entrenched the mind into a refusal to acknowledge evidence, even when it is compelling and empirical. This plight is very common amongst the human species and can be observed in several similar circumstances. The will is often dictated by the heart. When the heart is unyielding or unwilling to accept facts which are contrary to the will, the heart will refuse to accept these facts. A person who has determined in advance, what the results will be, cannot accept any evidence which violates their will. Continue reading “Evidence for God: What Kind of Proof are You Looking For?”

The New Testament is Written by Jews, About Jews, For Jews

I recently viewed a wonderful video from One For Israel, in which the speaker detailed his journey to find the true Messiah. He began with the assumption that the Christian New Testament was a book about how Gentiles persecute Jews. What he found was that the New Testament was written by Jews, to Jews, about a Jew and the primary subject of these documents, is the testimony that Jesus is the Messiah.

The speaker describes a problem that exists in Jewish culture that falsely portrays the narrative of Jesus in the Christian Bible as a Gentile attempt at passing off a false Messiah to the Jews of the world. In fact, what he discovered was that the more he read the words of Jesus himself and observed how He had fulfilled all the prophecies of the Messiah, the more he became convinced that Jesus was the One whom God had promised.

I was very excited about this video because of my many years researching and writing my new book: “The Prophecies of the Messiah.” During the writing and editing process, I became particularly aware of the facts of these prophecies which should intellectually convince any skeptic that they should seriously consider Jesus as a prime candidate for Messiah.

It is my sincere hope that in these final days before the Messiah returns to earth, that this book might be instrumental in conveying important information about the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, to those who are of Jewish descent. God has a particularly tender place in His heart for the Jewish people. I have grown to love the people of Israel, over the course of my 40 years writing and teaching the entire Bible to those who want to learn about God and His eternal message to mankind. I have found my Jewish friends to be quite zealous and fervent in their religion and have discovered that when intellectual arguments are presented to those who have a mind that is ready to consider truth, Jesus can easily be understood and received. Once the true facts are presented, any reasonable person will begin to see that there could be no other candidate for Messiah, other than Jesus of Nazareth.

If you enjoyed this video, perhaps you could visit and make a donation to help them continue to produce videos like this, to bring the world into a knowledge of Jesus Christ as the Messiah.

Though He Slay Me, Yet Will I Trust Him

There are many moments in the course of our lives when we find it difficult to trust the Lord. Even after experiencing a wonderful miracle or incredible moving of God in our lives—when a trial follows, we may find trust a difficult issue. For some reason we seem to focus more on the things that we do not have, rather than the many blessings that God has already given to us.

As I write these words, my dear wife lays in a bed across from me in the Intensive Care unit of a hospital. Two months ago, she began to experience headaches and a loss of vision. An M.R.I., revealed that she has a craniopharyngioma; a tumor, about the size of a golf ball, inside the very center of her brain. The optic nerves of her eyes, as well as the Pituitary gland, have been compressed by the presence of this slow growing tumor—during her entire forty-eight years, until it has finally robbed her of all vitality of life. Two months previous to my wife’s awareness that she would require two intensive brain surgeries, I suffered a heart attack on a remote island in the Philippines. We had been working together for the past five years, to bring some relief to the poor of an forgotten people, who live in object poverty. Just after midnight on October 10, 2014, I awoke with a searing pain in the center of my back, left shoulder, and chest. I didn’t know at the time that I was having a heart attack. I had been working so hard that I believed my pain was caused by a torn muscle in my back. I did not receive any treatment for my heart attack for another three weeks. I should have died during the early weeks after this event, but I did not. A blood clot had formed in the lower part of my heart that doctors describe as a “Thrombosis.” Nearly one-third of my heart muscle had died during this attack. Shortly after arriving back in the United States for treatment in late November of 2014, we learned of my wife’s brain tumor. Continue reading “Though He Slay Me, Yet Will I Trust Him”
