Amazing Bible Prophecies

Prophet Writing

Any logical thinking person knows that future events cannot be predicted without supernatural knowledge. Only the Creator could accurately proclaim the rise and fall of kingdoms; the timimg and arrival of  leaders; the moral decay that would result after abandoning certain spiritual laws; and the arrival of a Savior that would offer a second chance to live a godly life and inherit eternal life.

If you are one of those logical thinking persons, you will enjoy the selection of amazing prophecies we have highlighted here. If you are doubting any of the supernatural evidences throughout history concerning creation and the existence of a loving, merciful, jealous God who is also able to pour out His anger and judgment on unrepentant sinners, then we sincerely hope these remarkable prophecies, all having been documented (given and fulfilled generations apart) in the Bible, will move you to turn towards the Savior, Jesus Christ.

Over 60 Major Old Testament Prophecies of a Messiah

Prophecies concerning the Messiah, or Savior, are the most amazing since there were so many, covering a wide variety of details. There are over 300 references to the Messiah, and scholars easily identify over 60 major Old Testament prophecies fulfilled when Jesus Christ of Nazareth was born and completed His mission - no small accomplishment! In fact, the probability of one person satisfying just 48 of these prophecies has been calculated to be more than 1 to 10 in the 157th power: that's 1 with  157 zeros! 
I do not think that any logical thinking person could exclaim or try to explain this as "coincidence!"


Behold A Virgin Will Be With Child

One of the 60 major Old Testament prophecies about the Savior is the amazing and miraculous statement that the Savior would be born of a virgin. Here is what Isaiah declared back around 700 BC: "Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel (God with us)." (Isaiah 7:14)

And here is the fullfilment of Isaiah's prophecy, around the same time as John the Baptist was being born for his assignment of preaching  repentance near the Jordan River in Israel. It of course was also around the time when a young couple, Joseph and Mary, were having their first baby - on a date that would later divide the way we record history as we know it: 1 BC. "Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was engaged to Joseph, before they came together, she was found to be with child by the Holy Spirit. And Joseph arose from his sleep and did as the angel of the lord commanded him and took her as his wife and kept her a virgin until she gave birth to a Son; and called His name Jesus."
(Matthew 1: 18,24,25)

Not only was this the most extraordinary prophecy ever, pinpointing a bith from 700 years out, but the miraculous conception and spiritual meaning of it far exceeds what humanity can ever fathom the depth of mercy shown by a loving God.

Thou Art My Son

We are taught clearly throughout the Old and New Testaments that God is three persons in one (Trinity) - yes, a concept we humans seem to have difficulty in understanding much less believing. Nonetheless, He describes Himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 

The Son was first known and called "the Word" (John 1:1) before He came down to be known as "the Son" (the only God-man). Its helpful to realize that "the Word" would be the same as the "expression" of God (words express things as they are) the Father towards mankind. So, this person, one of the three, was the "Word" from eternity past, involved in the creation, and then came down from His throne to be the "Son" once He endwelled a man's body after birth. And thus He shall always be our Lord and Savior from eternity future.

So here is the simple and straight foward prophecy that was given in Psalms by David and the New Testament scripture that described its fullfilment when Jesus was being baptised in water:

"I will surely tell of the decree of the Lord: He said to me, 'Thou
art My Son, Today I have begotten Thee.'" (Psalms 2:7) And the fulfillment: "...and suddenly, a voice from out of the heavens saying, 'This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.'" (Matthew 3:17)

Moses Tells of Two National Events of
Destruction in Isreal's Future

Destruction picture

Moses is 120 years old now and speaking to the new generation of Israelites that will enter the promised land. The previous generation has died in the wilderness over the past 40 years as a result of their complaining and disobedience. And he is now prophesying of two major events: one where they will be captive by Babylon for 70 years; and the other when the great diaspora occurs and they are sent out of Israel in 70 AD to be dispersed throughout the nations for a very long time - actually it would be over 1900 years!

The Prophecies:
1) A mighty nation would invade, destroy, and take captives:
"The Lord will bring a nation against you from will eat the offspring of your heard and the produce of your ground until you are destroyed...And it shall besiege you in all your towns until your high and fortified walls in which you trusted come down..." (Deut. 28:49-52)

2) Israel is destroyed and scattered to global dispersion.
"Moreover the Lord will scatter you among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other end of the earth; and there you shall serve other gods, wood and stone...And among the nations you shall find no rest, and there shall be no resting place for the sole of your foot..." (Deut. 28:64-67)

The Fullfillment:
1) Jerusalem is destroyed by Babylon in 606 BC
"But they mocked the messengers of God, despised His words, and scoffed at His prophets, until the wrath of the Lord arose against His people and on His dwelling place. Therefore he brought against them the king of the Chaldeans (Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon) who killed their young men with the sword...and took all the treasures of  the king and his leaders to Babylon. Then they burned the house of God, broke down the wall of Jerusalem...and all those who escaped from the sword he carried away to Babylon...for seventy years." (2 Chron. 36: 16-21)
2) Israel is destroyed again and scattered in 70 AD by the Romans.

Most all of the New Testament books were written before 70 AD, the date of Jerusalem's destruction. But history records that it took place after one last attempt in 66 AD by the Jews to rebel over the brutal oppression by the Romans. Vespasian and his son, Titus, built a siege wall around the city and starved them to horrible deaths. The city and temple were then burned and the Jews were scattered throughout the world. The nation came under greater control by the Romans and eventually by other conquering foreign dominance for the next 19 centuries. The land became known as Palestine until the 20th century when Britain began negotiating for it to become a place that Jews could return and reestablish their nation.

Signs of the End Times Are Glaringly Present Today

"Tell us, when will these things be and what will be the sign of your coming, and the end of this age?" (Matthew 24:3)

This is the question the disciples asked Jesus while sitting on the Mount of Olives overlooking Jerusalem. And it is the question that this present world is asking today! And His answer rings out over these last 20 centuries reaching a crescendo of glaring signs now facing our world.

If you will read the rest of Matthew 24, you will see the major areas he tells us to watch for:

*Famines and Earthquakes and Pestilences
*False Cults and False Religions Arise
*Coldness of Heart, Lawlessness, and Ungodliness
*Wars and Rumors of Wars

I discuss these in more detail in my book, but I only want to highlight one of these now that surely any living soul has seen and agonized over: the present day lawlessness, coldness of heart, and resulting ungodliness. 

Not only did Jesus give this description in general, but just look at what three other scriptures said way back in Isaiah's days and later in Paul's days as the early church was struggling to survive:

1) "Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!"
(Isaiah 5:20)
2) "But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, arrogant, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of  pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away." (2 Timothy 3: 1-5)
3) "Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons." (1 Timothy 4:1)

Not only is the ungodly society we all live in now gripped and practicing everyone of these things, but many of our churches are failing and falling to the world's pressure and compromising to their "relevant modern ways."

May God help us to wake up before it's too late.
