Messianic Prophecies Fulfilled by Jesus – Day 38

Prophecy of Messiah:

Psalm 27:12  Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.

Good morning, reader! Have you ever been falsely accused of something? I think we can all say that this has happened at one time or another, amen? The Lord Jesus went through this and it led to His death! I could say in my mind how unfortunate it was that He was falsely accused. However, in light of prophecy, I am thankful that this occurred! I’m sure this sounds awful on my part; but think about it. Had the Lord not suffered, died and arose, our sin debt would not be paid!

Prophecy of Messiah Fulfilled:

Matthew 26:60-61  But found none: yea, though many false witnesses came, yet found they none. At the last came two false witnesses,  (61)  And said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days.
Mark 14:57-58  And there arose certain, and bare false witness against him, saying,  (58)  We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands.

False accusers will always be with us. In fact, after the Rapture of all born-again Christians, the greatest accuser, Satan, (Revelation 12:10), will take command over this earth; first influencing the antichrist and second, actually possessing him! He worked through people during Christ’s day to send Jesus to His death. Because of Satan’s pride, he didn’t think Jesus would rise from the dead. Satan thought that Christ’s death was the end and that he (Satan) would rule this world. Well, his time will come during the Tribulation. He will rule through the Antichrist but his time will be limited. The Lord Jesus Christ, our Messiah, will conquer Satan and will rule and reign in the Millennium.

Today’s prophecy tells us that Jesus was falsely accused by many. In light of all the prophecies thus far (this is our 38th), we are seeing the immutable proof that Jesus Christ is the Messiah. I’ve quoted this before but it’s worth repeating at this point:

Josh and Sean McDowell quote Stoner in their book, Evidence That Demands a Verdict: “We find that the chance that any man might have lived down to the present time and fulfilled all eight prophecies is 1 in 10 to the 17th power (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000).” Jesus fulfilled MUCH more than 8 (Over 300)! So just think of those odds!

Friend, Stoner states that for only eight prophecies being fulfilled by Jesus is 1 to the 17th power!!! I’ve have given you 38 thus far, which is over four times more! Can you imagine what the chances would be? Meditate on the mathematical possibilities. There should be no doubt in your mind that Jesus Christ IS the Messiah! Do you know Him personally or do you only know of Him? I want to be sure that anyone who reads the posts on this blog can know beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are going to Heaven. Have you received Christ as your Saviour? If no, your sins are not covered by His sacrificial offering of Himself. You have not been redeemed by His blood. It is no coincidence that God has placed you here for such a time as this so that you may be saved if you are not already.
