Prophecies that Jesus Christ fulfilled

It is more likely that a meteor would fall from space and hit you, than you being able to guess every correct number in the lottery and win. Yet people still play the lottery, and people still win! But here is where it gets harder…who has won the lottery 8 times in a row? how about 300 times in a row? There are over 300 prophecies that were written down and fulfilled with 100% accuracy by one person, Jesus Christ. These prophecies were written down and carbon dated to hundreds of years before they happened – some even being fulfilled whilst Jesus Christ was being crucified. The entire Bible speaks of the Messiah (Jesus Christ) in great detail: “Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me” Psalm 40:7, “…all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me” Luke 24:44, “And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.” Luke 24:27, “For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.” John 5:46.

“Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son’s name, If you know?” Proverbs 30:4

And He who sent Me is with Me. The Father has not left Me alone, for I always do those things that please Him.” Acts 3:22-23 “For Moses truly said to the fathers, ‘The Lord your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your brethren. Him you shall hear in all things, whatever He says to you. And it shall be that every soul who will not hear that Prophet shall be utterly destroyed from among the people.’

And streams in the desert.” Isa. 42:7 “To open blind eyes, To bring out prisoners from the prison, Those who sit in darkness from the prison house.”

And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me.” John 9:25 “I was blind, now I see.” Matthew 8:16-17 “When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick,”

He would teach in parables that people would not understand and know their thoughts
Prophecy: Psa. 78:1-2 “Give ear, O my people, to my law; Incline your ears to the words of my mouth. I will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter dark sayings of old,” Isa. 11:2-4 “The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him,The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.

Fulfilment: Matthew 4:12-17 “He (Jesus) departed to Galilee. And leaving Nazareth, He came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is by the sea, in the regions of Zebulun and Naphtali,… From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

The time at which he would arrive on the scene:

The kingdom of Judah will still have a King reigning over it when the Messiah arrives:

And to Him shall be the obedience of the people.”

The end of it shall be with a flood, And till the end of the war desolations are determined.” Psalm 118:26 “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. From the house of the Lord we bless you.” Zechariah 9:9 “Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion! Shout, Daughter Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.”
Fulfilment: This is the exact day that Jesus Christ the Messiah rode triumphantly into Jerusalem on a Donkey as the people shouted. Mark 11:7-10 “When they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks over it, he sat on it. Many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others spread branches they had cut in the fields. Those who went ahead and those who followed shouted, “Hosanna!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!”
“Hosanna in the highest heaven!””

The Messiah must arrive during the second temple era, God will shake the earth and give peace:
Prophecy: Hag. 2:6-9 “For thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and dry land; and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory,’ says the Lord of hosts. ‘The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,’ says the Lord of hosts. ‘The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former,’ says the Lord of hosts. ‘And in this place I will give peace,’ says the Lord of hosts.” Isaiah 9:6-7 “And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end.”

A man will cry out in the wilderness and prepare the way before the Messiah is proclaimed:
