Annie's "Jesus-Messiah the Fulfillment of Prophecy" Page

Jesus sitting on the Mount


The Old Testament contains over 300 references to the Messiah that were fulfilled in Jesus.

In "Science Speaks" by Peter Stoner the probabilities of a man fulfilling eight of the prophecies
is 1 in 10 to the 17th power which is 100,000,000,000,000,000.

So now can you imagine the figure for all of the over 300 prophecies that were fulfilled in Jesus.

So if you question that God inspired the Bible and that Jesus is the Christ your argument would really have
little merit. Especially if you consider the science of probability.

Lets look at what Luke 24:44-49 says:
"And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things
must be
fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning
me. Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, And said unto them, Thus it
is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance
and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And ye are
witnesses of these things. And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the
city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high."

Notice that Matthew 1:22 says this "All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet;"

Lets take a look at the word FULFILL and see what the scriptures tell us. Twelve times in the gospel of Matthew
alone the mention of the things that need to be
FULFILLED about Jesus were mentioned. (Matthew 1:22; 2:15;
3:15; 4:14; 5:17; 8:17; 12:17; 13:14,35; 21:4; 27:9) These verses are talking about Old Testament prophecies
that are to be
fulfilled in Jesus birth and life. These FULFILLMENTS are powerful testimonies to the
divine origin of the Scriptures and its accuracy even in the small details.

But not all the PROPHESIES of the Old Testament are fulfilled. Jesus is coming again!
There are prophecies of His return in the Old and New Testament.

God's Word the Bible is so full of wonder and awe! But it is also very specific if we study
it with the insight and inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

The word "Bible" was formed from a Greek term meaning books in the plural. The Bible is a collection of 66 books
and inspired by God. It has many authors and was written in Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 "All Scripture is God breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in
righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work."

Something for you to consider:

"You must make a choice. Either this man was and is the Son of God: or else a madman or something worse.
You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet
and call Him Lord and God.
~C.S. Lewis "Mere Christianity"~

Now that you know for sure who Jesus Christ is and was......
Let me ask you a most important question.
Have you asked Him to be the Lord and Saviour of your life?

This is what Jesus said about Himself:
"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
John 14:6"

If you are a Christian, please take this time to give your life totally over to the Lord.
There is no half way with the Lord. Either you are in control or the Lord is.

Who is in control of your life?

John 14:1-3 "Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are
many mansions : if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and
prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also."

Let's look forward to the Lord's return with an expectant heart.
