"And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him." (Genesis 5:24)
Some would not consider this to be an illustration of the ascension of Christ, and perhaps, rightly so. It may illustrate more rightly, the pre-trib rapture of the church. The Bible, speaking of types and shadows in the Old Testament now clearly revealed in the New, are not a few. The Bible tells us, "Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples (Gr. tupos): and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come." (1 Corinthians 10:11) Hebrews 11:5 states concerning Enoch, "By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God." As for Christ, we are told, "Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him." (Romans 6:9) Christ died for our sins and rose from the dead. Death is no longer able to touch Him, as He is "alive for evermore" (Revelaiton 1:18). And after He was seen of many witnesses we are told He was "taken up ... into heaven" (Acts 1:11). So we believe that the arguement can be made, that, if Enoch illustrates the pre-trib rapture of the siants, the only reason they are able to be raptured, is that Christ died for our sins, was buried, and rose again, and "ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things" (Ephesians 4:10). Jesus said, "because I live, ye shall live also" (John 14:9). "In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him." (1 John 4:9). We only live because Christ lives. He is the first cause of all things, and so too, the ressurection from the dead, as He said, "I am the ressurection, and the life" (John 11:12), and our ascension into heaven, for He "ascended on high [and] led captivity captive" (Psalm 68:18).
"So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God." (Mark 16:19)
"And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne." (Revelation 12:5)
"And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant. God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant." (Genesis 9:26-27)
It is clear that Jesus Christ, the Messiah, the Son of God, was born of the line of Shem. The question is whether or not this was foretold in Genesis 9:26-27. We are told that "he shall dwell in the tents of Shem". Does the "he" refer to God or Japheth? It is noted that God's spiritual blessings would fall primarily on Shem whose God is Jehovah. And if the "he" be Japheth, from whom the Gentiles descended, I think that this would imply that Japheth would come to share in the spiritual blessings and fellowship of Shem. This would be totally in agreement with the Scriptures for the Gentiles did recieve light and blessings through the descendant of Shem, and the promised Seed, namely Jesus Christ. Nevertheless, if the "he" be God, and it be He who would shine through and tabernacle with Shem, even until the fulness of time when God sent forth His Son, the true Light of the world, when the Word became flesh and dwelt (tabenacled) among us, this also would be in agreement with the Scripture.
"And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli... Which was the son of Cainan, which was the son of Arphaxad, which was the son of Shem..." (Luke 3:23-36)
"The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be." (Genesis 49:10)
The Seed was first mentioned in Genesis 3:15, then confirmed to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob. Now it is confirmed to Judah. The leadership, according to Jacob, was to go to Judah, but this did not happen for over six hundred years. Moses came from Levi, Joshua from Ephraim, Gideon from Manasseh, Samson from Dan, Samuel from Ephraim and Saul from Benjamin. But when David finally became king, Judah became the dominant tribe from that time on. Judah held the sceptre and did not relinquish it until after Shiloh came.
There were many prophecies in the OT pertaining to the coming Christ. "there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel... Out of Jacob shall come he that shall have dominion" (Numbers 24:17, 19) and again, "But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting." (Micah 5:2) This led the wise men of the east to come to Jerusalem saying, "Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him." (Matthew 2:2) From this they knew that out of Bethlehem, from the tribe of Judah, "shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel." (v. 6)
In that day, genealogical records were readily available in the Temple. But after the Messiah died for our sins and rose again from the dead for our justification, in AD 70, the temple was destroyed with all its genealogical records. The Jews were then scattered to the nations of the world, so we could truly say from that time, the Sceptre departed from Judah, for with no certainty can any Jew prove he is from the tribe of Judah. So with this certainty, we knew that Shiloh has come, for He is the "Lion of the tribe of Judah".
"And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn." (Luke 2:1-7)
"But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law" (Galatians 4:4).
"But I was like a lamb or an ox that is brought to the slaughter; and I knew not that they had devised devices against me, saying, Let us destroy the tree with the fruit thereof, and let us cut him off from the land of the living, that his name may be no more remembered." (Jeremiah 11:19)
Not many commentators apply this verse in Jeremiah to Christ. Most apply it to Jeremiah, and indeed the people of apostate Israel and Judah at that time were speaking that to him. Nevertheless, what many have forgotten, is that many of the prophets, in one form or another of their ministry, exemplified in his own person some one feature or more in the manifold attributes and sufferings of the Messiah to come, and so that which applied to them, was in fact being spoken also of Christ.
And this is not hard to discern as this was also clearly spoken of the Messiah in Isaiah 53, that He "was cut off out of the land of the living", and ever so clearly in Daniel 9:27, that at the appointed time "shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself", no, not for Himself, but "for the transgression of my people was he stricken" (Isaiah 53:8).
Furthermore, this being conspired in the minds of the detractors, "that his name be no more remembered", would certainly remind us of Psalm 83, where it is written, "Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance." Here speaking of Israel, but once again, typified as Christ (Ex. 4:22, Hosea 11:1, Mt. 2:15) whom is identified as Israel, my firstborn Son whom He called out of Egypt, whom through the loins of Israel He was to come as the promised Seed of Abraham.
And Christ, foreknowing all things prophesied of this also saying, "the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again" (Mark 8:31). And again, "they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again." (Mark 10:34) And this being in their mind, we are told, "the Jews sought to kill him" (John 7:1), the Prince of life. And for what purpose? Even the ignorant Caiaphas prophesied that, "it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people" (John 11:50). And so, Christ died for our sins, He was buried, and rose again from the dead according to the Scriptures. Hallelujah!
There are so many riches and treasures and wonders hidden in the Scriptures that they are just too wonderful for me.
"...the Jews sought to kill him." (John 7:1)
"...come, let us kill him..." (Matthew 21:38)

Dear brethren

my name is Francesco maggio. Italian nationality. I work full time, since 30 years, among Muslims in Italy and to mobilise churches. I appreciate very much your site.
I find very interesting your paper "356 Prophecies Fulfilled in Jesus Christ"

I looked to get it in Italian among one hundreds of languages, but not in Italian!

Could you help us please to introduce 'Italian"?

I hope it.

thanks

Noel,

Here is your religious lesson for today. Here are the Jewish Messanic Prophesies:

1. Must be Jewish: Deuteronomy 17:15, Numbers 24:17.
2. He must be a member of the tribe of Judah: Genesis 49:10.
3. Must be a direct male descendant of King David through his son Solomon: I Chronicals17:11, Psalms 89:20-38, Jeremiah 33:17, II Samuel 7:12-16, I Chronicles 22:10, II Chronicles 7:18.
4. He must gather the Jewish people from exile and return them to Israel: 27:12-13, Isaiah 11:12.
5. He must rebuild the Jewish temple in Jerusalem: Micah 4:1.
6. He must bring world peace: Isaiah 2:4, Isaiah 11:6, Micah 4:3.
7. He must influence the entire world to acknowledged and serve one God: Isaiah 11:9, Isaiah 40:5, Zephaniah 3:9.

As we all know Jesus did not gather all the Jewish people from exile, strike one, he did not rebuild the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem, strike 2 and he did not bring world peace, strike 3. He is not the Jewish Messiah.

Paul,

If Israel would have accepted their Messiah when He came preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom (Matthew 4:17, 23), they could have had the Kingdom of David restored unto them (Luke 1:31-33), but they rejected Him and crucified Him according to the Scriptures (Isaiah 53:8, Daniel 9:24-27). Israel will now have to go through the "Time of Jacob's Trouble" (Jeremiah 30:7), and endure that terrible time spoken of by the prophets (Daniel 12:1, Joel 2:1-2, Matthew 24:21).

I agree with all your Messianic Prophecies, and these will yet be fulfilled by Jesus Christ when He returns after the Seventieth Week of Daniel is played out (Daniel 9:24-27). All, that is, except your 3rd point. You will be hard pressed to prove that the Messianic offspring will come through Solomon with those Scriptures you point out, for Solomon's line was cut off (Jeremiah 22:28-30).

Jesus will gather together His people Israel at the end of the Tribulation (Matthew 24:31-33, Isaiah 27:12-13, Deuteronomy 30:1-4, 5-6). At that time, He will bring peace to the world and build the Temple according to Ezekiel 40-48. I think we are more in agreement than you think, however, it is a matter of timing.

Noel,

You really do not get it. Jesus is not the Jewish Messiah. I have shown you the Jewish Messiah prophecies. You did not see that there is no prophecy that states the Jewish Messiah will come a second time to fulfill all the prophesies. That is something that Christians have made up to explain why Jesus did not fulfill all the Jewish Messianic Prophesies. You as a Christian have no say in who is or is not the Jewish Messiah. I know that is hard for you to accept, but it is true. It would be like you saying that Muslims are right about the Christian Bible being corrupted.

No Paul, I do get it.

There were 490 years that God had decreed, that would be determined upon Israel and Jerusalem before the Kingdom would be inaugurated. The prophet Daniel was told from the going forth of the commandment to restore and rebuild the Jerusalem to the Messiah would be 483 years, but after this, the Messiah would be cut off.

It was exactly 483 years to the presentation of the Messiah as the King, but Israel would not have Him to reign over them and He was subsequently cut off, but not for Himself. He died for the sins of the world shedding His blood as of a Lamb without spot and blemish.

Nevertheless, He rose from the dead and ascended back to heaven with the promise to return again. Thus, the Kingdom was postponed, and many of the prophecies you mentioned will not come to pass till He returns at the end of the final "seven" years, "the time of Jacob's Trouble", the "Great Tribulation".

The promised Kingdom was then postponed and a gap came between week 69 and 70. It is in this gap that God is reaching out to the Gentiles to take out of them a people for His name (Isaiah 49:5-6).

"Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate." (Daniel 9:24-27)

Because Israel rejected her Messiah, they were judged by God. The Roman armies destroyed the city and the Temple, and the Jews were scattered to the 4 corners of the world (Luke 21:24). In this gap, Blindness in part has happened unto the Jews until the fulness of the Gentiles come in (Romans 11:25-27). By the end of the Seventieth Week, they shall finally call out to their Saviour and He will return to save them, Only then shall they come under the New Covenant (Jeremiah 31:31-34).

And to this agrees all the prophets, "In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old: That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name, saith the LORD that doeth this." (Amos 9:11-12)

"For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice, and without an image, and without an ephod, and without teraphim: Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the LORD their God, and David their king; and shall fear the LORD and his goodness in the latter days." (Hosea 3:4-5)

"And the LORD shall scatter you among the nations, and ye shall be left few in number among the heathen, whither the LORD shall lead you. And there ye shall serve gods, the work of mens hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell. But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul. When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice; (For the LORD thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them." (Deuteronomy 4:27-31)

"1 And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt call [them] to mind among all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath driven thee,
2 And shalt return unto the LORD thy God, and shalt obey his voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul;
3 That then the LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee.
4 If [any] of thine be driven out unto the outmost [parts] of heaven, from thence will the LORD thy God gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee:
5 And the LORD thy God will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and he will do thee good, and multiply thee above thy fathers.
6 And the LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live." (Deuteronomy 30:1-6)

Noel,

I have to disagree with you again. You don't get it. You have no say so who the Jewish Messiah is or is not. I have shown you the Jewish Messanic Prophecies, none of them include a second coming. That is something that Christians invented to say why Jesus did not fulfill all the Jewish Messanic Prophecies. You have yet to give me chapter and verse where is says the Jewish Messiah Will take 2 visits to this earth to fulfill his Prophecies.

Paul,

I am sure you have heard of some of the old Jewish sages who thought there would be two Messiahs? Mashiach ben Yosef and Mashiach ben David. If you have not perhaps you could look it up. They saw in the Scriptures a Messiah wo would suffer and die, while the other would come as a conquering King. The prophecies the sufferings of Messiah and his glory, they could not reconcile into one person so they thought there must be two Messiahs.

We believe that rather than explaining this with two Messiah's, it made more sense to explain it with two comings. Now I know you do not believe the New Covenant mentioned in Jeremiah 31:31-34 has not yet been introduced. However, we see that Jesus Christ has instituted it, however, it has not yet been fulfilled for the nation Israel, nationalistically speaking. The Old Covenant faded away with the destruction of the Temple in AD 70.

Now that we have the New Covenant, we can see with eyes wide open how Jesus did fulfill those Scriptures relating to the sufferings of the Messiah and gave Him glory, raising Him from the dead. His glorious reign, however, is yet future. There is no way that someone could have invented this, or thought up how intricately Jesus fulfilled all those prophecies, and woven them together to make what you call the "Christian New Testament". That is totally ludicrous. And let's face it, if Jesus Christ did not rise from the dead, His disciples would have dispersed and went back to their nets, seeing they were duped by another false Messiah. No, there is no way they would have went to the ends of the earth suffering hardships even death. If Jesus did not rise from the dead, according to the Scriptures, there would be no Christianity today.

Even the prophets could not put together the sufferings and the glory which should follow. "Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven" (1 Peter 1:10-12).

Jesus had to rebuke two of His disciples, who were saddened after the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, for they trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel. "Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?" (Luke 24:25-26)

He is not coming again to suffer and die for our sins, as a lamb to the slaughter (Isaiah 53:6-8), no, this He did once, and He rose from the dead, conquering death (Hosea 13:14, Psalm 16:10). Now He is sitting at the right hand of God, and when he returns, He is coming as the lion of the tribe of Judah (Genesis 49:9-10), to judge the nations (Psalm 110:1-4, 5-6), to save Israel (Jeremiah 30:7-9, 11, 22-24) and to sit upon the throne of His glory. (Matthew 25:31-33)

I only ask you to think on these things and pray to the God of heaven who can reveal these secrets unto you (Daniel 2:28).

Noel,

You crack me up. No sage ever talked about seeing anything about a suffering Messiah. Again you are misinterpreting Jewish scripture. There are plenty of Christians who will believe you and not check it out. You are talking about Isaiah 53 that talks about a suffering servant. But according to Isaiah 41:8-9, Isaiah 44: 1-2, Isaiah 45:4, Isaiah 48:20, Isaiah 49:3, Isaiah 42:16-20 and Isaiah 43:10. Again you are misinterpreting Jewish Scripture to fit your story about Jesus.

My eyes are wide open, I have done my homework. You are the one who is blinded and can not see what is right and wrong with your thinking. I now see why Muslims think the Christian Bible has been corrupted. Especially since part of the Christian Bible was written by an admitted liar. Yes Paul admits to telling lies.

I do hope one day you will see the light and accept the fact that you have no say so in the real interpretation of Jewish scripture.

The Light of the world has come into the world (John 8:12), The Holy One of Israel, the Servant of the Lord has come to be a Light to the Gentiles (Isaiah 49:6), and in a future day that is very near, now that Israel is partially gathered back to the land promised to the fathers, God's Servant shall "raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel". I pray you will be found in that number Paul. He came the first time riding on the foal of a donkey (Zechariah 9:9), but when He comes again, it will be in the clouds of heaven (Daniel 7:13-14).

"And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were come to Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples, Saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me. And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say, The Lord hath need of them; and straightway he will send them. All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass. And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them, And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him thereon. And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way. And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest." (Matthew 21:1-9)

"Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen." (Revelation 1:7)

Paul,

Do you not make an assumption? And if you do, then why? You seem to assume that if Messiah were to fulfil the Messianic prophecies in two comings (rather than one), that the Messianic prophecies would indicate this beforehand.

Phil,

I am not assuming anything. It is as simple as it is written. At the start of this thread I indicated what the Jewish Messanic Prophecies are. I also indicated the ones that Jesus did not fulfill while he was physically alive on this planet. As you noticed I did not say anything about the Jewish Messiah coming a second time. I have indicated that is something that Christians have invented to explain why Jesus did not fulfill all that he had to fulfill the first time he was physically alive. Can you explain why Jesus did not fulfill all the Jewish Messanic Prophecies the first time he was physically on this planet?

Hello Paul, I am not sure what happened to Phil, but might I add comment.

You are right when you say Jesus did not fulfill certain prophecies at His first coming, and that was because Israel rejected Him as the Messiah, the Son of God, their Redeemer and coming King, the promised Seed David.

The exact day was predicted by the prophet Daniel (Daniel 9:24-27) that He would be presented to the nation Israel. This is why there was an earnest expectation for the coming kingdom of God at that time (Luke 2:25, 38; 19:11, Mark 15:43). On that precise day, Jesus came riding on a donkey into Jerusalem in fulfillment of Zechariah 9:9. "And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it, Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in THIS THY DAY, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes. For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; BECAUSE THOU KNEWEST NOT THE TIME OF THY VISITATION." (Luke 19:41-44)

The Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6-7) was in their midst and they knew Him not neither did they receive Him, rather, He was "cut off" by His own people. The children of Israel were crying, "Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD" (Luke 19:38; Psalm 118:26), but in that same Psalm it is written, "The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner. This is the LORD'S doing; it is marvellous in our eyes." (Psalm 118:22-23)

Jesus quoted this Psalm saying, "Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes? Therefore say I unto you, THE KINGDOM OF GOD SHALL BE TAKEN FROM YOU, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. And whosoever shall fall on THIS STONE shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder." (Matthew 21:42-44)

Because they rejected their King, the Kingdom was postponed. Why do you think God departed from the nation of Israel to begin (Ezekiel 10:18) with and Jerusalem and the Temple was destroyed by the Babylonians and Israel went into their Babylonian Captivity? Why do you think Titus came and in AD 70 destroyed the city and the Temple (Daniel 9:25-26) and the Jews entered the diaspora being scattered to the four corners of the earth??

Well, the Stone that Israel rejected shall return, and this time Israel shall cry out for her King and He shall come and save them out of their time of Trouble (Jeremiah 30:7, Daniel 12:1), and Jesus shall fulfill all those prophecies that you are talking about

"Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth... And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure." (Daniel 2:35-35, 44-45)

"Ye men of Israel... But those things, which God before had shewed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he hath so fulfilled. Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began. For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people. Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days. Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed. Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.” (Acts 3:12, 18-26)
