Prophecies of Jesus

Genesis 3:15 “And I will put hostility between you and the woman and between your offspring and her offspring; her offspring will attack your head, and you will attack her offspring’s heel.”

Genesis 12:1-3  “Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go out from your country, your relatives, and your father’s household to the land that I will show you. 2 Then I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you, and I will make your name great, so that you will exemplify divine blessing. 3 I will bless those who bless you, but the one who treats you badly I must curse, and all the families of the earth will bless one another by your name.”

Genesis 28:13-14 and the Lord stood at its top.  He said, “I am the Lord, the God of your grandfather Abraham and the God of your father Isaac.  I will give you and your descendants the ground you are lying on. 14 Your descendants will be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out to the west, east, north, and south.  All the families of the earth will pronounce blessings on one another using your name and that of your descendants.

Genesis 49:10  The scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until he comes to whom it belongs; the nations will obey him.

Isaiah 7:13-14 Then he said, “Listen now, O house of David! Is it too slight a thing for you to try the patience of men, that you will try the patience of my God as well?  14 “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.  (Fulfillment: Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:26-35)

Isaiah  9:6-7  For a child has been born to us, a son has been given to us.  He shoulders responsibility and is called: Extraordinary Strategist, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.  7 His dominion will be vast and he will bring immeasurable prosperity.  He will rule on David’s throne and over David’s kingdom, establishing it and strengthening it by promoting justice and fairness, from this time forward and forevermore.  The Lord’s intense devotion to his people will accomplish this.

Isaiah 11:1-2  “A shoot will grow out of Jesse’s root stock, a bud will sprout from his roots.   2 The Lord’s spirit will rest on him– a spirit that gives extraordinary wisdom, a spirit that provides the ability to execute plans, a spirit that produces absolute loyalty to the Lord.”

Isaiah 40:3  A voice is calling, “Clear the way for the LORD in the wilderness; Make smooth in the desert a highway for our God.

Isaiah 53:12  Therefore, I will allot Him a portion with the great, And He will divide the booty with the strong; Because He poured out Himself to death, And was numbered with the transgressors; Yet He Himself bore the sin of many, And interceded for the transgressors.  (Fulfillment: Luke 23:34)

Malachi 3:1 “Behold, I am going to send My messenger, and he will clear the way before Me.  And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple; and the messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight, behold, He is coming,” says the LORD of hosts.

Numbers 24:17  “I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not close at hand.  A star  will march forth out of Jacob, and a scepter will rise out of Israel.  He will crush the skulls of Moab, and the heads of all the sons of Sheth.”  (Fulfillment: Matthew 2:1-2)

Micah 5:2-3  As for you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, seemingly insignificant among the clans of Judah – from you a king will emerge who will rule over Israel on my behalf, one whose origins are in the distant past. 3 So the Lord will hand the people of Israel over to their enemies until the time when the woman in labor gives birth. Then the rest of the king’s countrymen will return to be reunited with the people of Israel.  (Fulfillment: Luke 2:1-7; Matthew 2:1-6)

Psalm 22:16 For dogs have surrounded me; A band of evil doers has encompassed me; They pierced my hands and my feet. (Fulfillment: Luke 23:33)

Psalm 22:18 They divide my garments among them, And for my clothing they cast lots. (Fulfillment: John 19:23-24) 

Matthew 1:18-25  Now the birth of Jesus Christ happened this way. While his mother Mary was engaged to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit.  19 Because Joseph, her husband to be, was a righteous man, and because he did not want to disgrace her, he intended to divorce her privately.  20 When he had contemplated this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife, because the child conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.  21 She will give birth to a son and you will name him Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”  22 This all happened so that what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet would be fulfilled: 23Look! The virgin will conceive and bear a son, and they will call him Emmanuel,” which means “God with us.”  24 When Joseph awoke from sleep he did what the angel of the Lord told him.  He took his wife,  25 but did not have marital relations with her until she gave birth to a son, whom he named Jesus.

Matthew 2:1-6  After Jesus was born in Bethlehemin Judea, in the timeof King Herod, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem  2 saying, “Where is the one who is born king of the Jews? For we saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”  3 When King Herod heard this he was alarmed, and all Jerusalem with him.  4 After assembling all the chief priests and experts in the law, he asked them where the Christ was to be born.  5 “In Bethlehem of Judea,” they said, “for it is written this way by the prophet:                                                                                                                   6And you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,                                                                                     are in no way least among the rulers of Judah,                                                                       for out of you will come a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel.’”

Matthew 5:17  “Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish, but to fulfill.”

Luke 1:26-35  In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a town of Galilee called Nazareth, 27 to a virgin engaged to a man whose name was Joseph, a descendant of David, and the virgin’s name was Mary.  28 The angel came to her and said, “Greetings, favored one, the Lord is with you!”  29 But she was greatly troubled by his words and began to wonder about the meaning of this greeting.  30 So the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God!  31 Listen:  You will become pregnant and give birth to a son, and you will name him Jesus.  32 He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High, and the Lord God will give him the throne of his father David. 33 He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and his kingdom will never end.”  34 Mary said to the angel, “How will this be, since I have not had sexual relations with a man?”  35 The angel replied, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you.  Therefore the child to be born will be holy; he will be called the Son of God.

Luke 2:1-7  Now in those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus to register all the empire for taxes.  2 This was the first registration, taken when Quirinius was governor of Syria. 3 Everyone went to his own town to be registered.  4 So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to the city of David called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family line of David.  5 He went to be registered with Mary, who was promised in marriage to him, and who was expecting a child.  6 While they were there, the time came for her to deliver her child.  7 And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in strips of cloth and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.

Luke 4:16-21  Now Jesus came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, as was his custom.  He stood up to read, 17 and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written,                                                                                                                                                                 18The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poorHe has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and the regaining of sight to the blind, to set free those who are oppressed, 19 to proclaim the year of the Lords favor.  20 Then he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down.  The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fixed on him.  21 Then he began to tell them, “Today this scripture has been fulfilled even as you heard it being read.”

Luke 23:33  And when they came to the place called The Skull, there they crucified Him and the criminals, one on the right and the other on the left.

Luke 23:34  But Jesus was saying, “Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.” And they cast lots, dividing up His garments among themselves.

Luke 24:27  “And beginning with Moses and with all the prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures.”

Luke 24:44  Now He said to them, “These are My words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things which are written about Me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.”

John 19:23-24 The soldiers therefore, when they had crucified Jesus, took His outer garments and made four parts, a part to every soldier and also the tunic; now the tunic was seamless, woven in one piece.  24 They said therefore to one another, “Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it, to decide whose it shall be”; that the Scripture might be fulfilled, “They divided My outer garments among them, and for My clothing they cast lots.”

Amos 8:9  “And it will come about in that day,” declares the Lord GOD, “That I shall make the sun go down at noon And make the earth dark in broad daylight.  (Fulfillment: Matthew 27:45)

Matthew 27:45  Now from the sixth hour darkness fell upon all the land until the ninth hour.

NOTE: In the Jewish culture of that time there were “twelve hours from sunrise to sunset.  This would make the sixth hour about noon, and the ninth hour near three o’clock.”  (“Messianic Prophecies” Study By: J. Hampton Keathley, III) http://bible.org/article/messianic-prophecies
