This is a page taken from my website, WisdomAboveGold.com. I've posted it here because I think it contains critical information for every seeker of Truth. I hope you agree.
________________________________________________________________

Since putting up this website 5 months ago, several devout Jewish believers contacted me seeking to understand the Christian acceptance of Yeshua as the Messiah. More recently someone suggested that I line up Old Testament prophesies against scriptural fulfillment in the New Testament gospel. It's my sincere hope that future Jewish visitors to this site will review the prophetic consummations listed on this page with utmost consideration. The evidence is probably going to be far more compelling than you were otherwise led to believe. Moreover, I encourage all visitors to complete the investigation process by reading 'The Messiah's Lineage' located on the 'Letters2' page of the site. Since I'll be listing & commenting on each example as it occurs to me, I can't promise that they will be presented in any particular order.

MOSES PROPHESIED OF THE MESSIAH:

Old Testament:

Deuteronomy 18:15
The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet
from the midst of thee, of thy brethren,
like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken.

Moses said the Prophet would be 'like unto him'. So what was Moses like?

Numbers 12:3
Now the man Moses was very meek,
above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.

And what about Christ?

New Testament-prophesy fulfilled:

Matthew 11:29
Take my yoke upon you, & learn of me;
for I am meek & lowly in heart:
& ye shall find rest for your souls.

Moses: Humble man; leader; guide to salvation
Christ: Humble man; leader; guide to salvation

Of course, most Jews at the time of Christ were expecting a warrior-type Messiah that would crush the Roman stronghold. Please continue reading to understand that what Christ actually accomplished fulfilled a far greater definition of salvation, not just for the Jews, but for all of humanity.

Ezekiel 36:22-28
Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord God;
I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel,
but for mine holy name’s sake,
which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went.

23-And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen,
which ye have profaned in the midst of them;
& the heathen shall know that I am the Lord, saith the Lord God,
when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.

24-For I will take you from among the heathen,
& gather you out of all countries,
& will bring you into your own land.

25-Then I will sprinkle clean water upon you, & ye shall be clean:
from all your filthiness, & from all your idols, will I cleanse you.

26-A new heart also will I give you, & a new spirit will I put within you:
& I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh,
& I will give you a heart of flesh.

27-And I will put my spirit within you, & cause you to walk in my statutes,
& ye shall keep my judgments, & do them.

28-And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers;
& ye shall be my people, & I will be your God.

In this passage God is speaking to the ENTIRE house of Israel. However, according to scripture God reserved only a remnant of 10% of the tribe of Judah for the return to Jerusalem after the Babylonian invasion. These are the people who preserved their religious identity & it is their offspring that continue to call themselves Jews today. The other tribes, as well as the rest of the tribe of Judah, were deeply immersed in pagan practice since millennia ago which is why God caused them to be invaded by Assyria, & later Babylon, in the first place. Since the great scatterings, few among the generations that followed have retained their identities & so remain dispersed around the globe, wholly ignorant of their spiritual heritage.

The popular claim that the secular nation of Israel that exists today is the fulfillment of this all-inclusive prophetic promise of restoration is simply illogical. There are large communities of Orthodox Jews around the globe who fully recognize that the state of Israel, known to have been planned by certain Freemason elite since the late 1800's, serves as a contrived Luciferian decoy & could not possibly satisfy the Father's spiritual re-gathering event. What follows is 'the Valley of Dry Bones' passage in its entirety from the book of Ezekiel. Please read through it with an open mind & an open heart, that is, with eyes to ‘see’ & ears to ‘hear’.
______________________________________________________________________________

Ezekiel 37:3,5-26
And he said unto me, Son of man, Can these bones live?
5-Thus saith the Lord God unto these bones;
Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, & ye shall live:
6-And I will lay sinews upon you, & will bring up flesh upon you
& cover you with skin,& put breath in you,& ye shall live
& ye shall know that I am the Lord.
7-So I prophesied as I was commanded:
& as I prophesied, there was a noise, & behold a shaking
& the bones came together, bone to his bone.

8-And when I beheld, lo, the sinews & the flesh came up upon them & the skin covered them above:
but there was no breath in them.

9-Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man,
& say unto the wind, Thus saith the Lord God;
Come from the four winds, O breath, & breathe upon these slain,
that they may live.

10-So I prophesied as he commanded me,
& the breath came into them, & they lived, & stood up upon their feet,
an exceeding great army.

11-Then he said unto me, Son of man,
these bones are the WHOLE HOUSE OF ISRAEL:
behold, they say, Our bones are dried, & our hope is lost:
we are cut off for our parts.

12-Therefore prophesy & say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God;
Behold, O my people,
I will open your graves, & cause you to come up out of your graves,
& bring you into the land of Israel.

13-And ye shall know that I am the Lord, when I have opened your graves,
O my people, & brought you up out of your graves,

14-And shall put my spirit in you, & ye shall live,
& I shall place you in your own land:
then shall ye know that I the Lord have spoken it, & performed it, saith the Lord.

15-The word of the Lord came again unto me, saying,
16-Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick,
& write upon it, For Judah, & for the children of Israel his companions:
then take another stick, & write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim,
& for all the house of Israel his companions:

17-And join them one to another into one stick;
& they shall become one in thine hand.
18-And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying,
Wilt thou not shew us what thou meanest by these?
19-Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God;
Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim,
& the tribes of Israel his fellows,
& will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah,
& make them one stick, & they shall be one in mine hand.

20-And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes.

21-And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God;
Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen,
whither they be gone,
& will gather them on every side, & bring them into their own land:

22-And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel;
& ONE KING SHALL BE KING TO THEM ALL:
& THEY SHALL NO MORE BE 2 NATIONS,
neither shall they be divided into 2 kingdoms any more at all:

23-Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols,
nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions:
but I will save them out of all their dwelling places, wherein they have sinned,
& will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, & I will be their God.

24-And David my servant shall be king over them;
& they shall also walk in my judgments, & observe my statutes, & do them.

25-And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant,
wherein your fathers have dwelt;
and they shall dwell therein, even they, & their children for ever;
& my servant David shall be their prince for ever.

26-Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them;
it shall be an everlasting covenant with them:
& I will place them, & multiply them
& will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.


The following is a short list of the promises given in this passage that have by no stretch of the imagination been satisfied by the re-gathering of the Jews into today's nation of Israel:

• The ENTIRE house of Israel will be re-gathered.
• The dead will be resurrected. (& not just metaphorically-remember, this is God!)
• The land will NOT be secular, but wholly devoted to serving God, Jehovah.
• A new spiritual covenant will be established.
• King David (the Messiah) shall reign over them forever.
• A sanctuary will be established in the midst of the people. (architectural?)

The book of Micah provides further insight into the re-gathered society. Please continue reading.
__________________________________________________________________________

Micah 4:1-3
But in the last days it shall come to pass,
that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established
in the top of the mountains,
& it shall be exalted above the hills;
& people shall flow unto it.

2-And many nations shall come, & say,
Come, & let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
& to the house of the God of Jacob;
& HE WILL TEACH US OF HIS WAYS, & we will walk in his paths:
for the law shall go forth of Zion,
& the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

3-AND HE SHALL JUDGE AMONG MANY PEOPLE,
& rebuke strong nations afar off;
& they shall beat their swords into plowshares, & their spears into pruninghooks:
nation shall not lift up a sword against nation,
NEITHER SHALL THEY LEARN WAR ANYMORE.

No more war-swords into plowshares! No, this definitely does not describe Israel in its current condition. However, it does sound like the government of the future that Christ was trying to explain to his disciples:

Mark 10:42-45
Christ's words:
Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles
exercise lordship over them;
& their great ones exercise authority upon them.
43-But so shall it not be among you:
but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister.
44-And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.
45-For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister,
& to give his life a ransom for many.

Matthew 5:39,41
But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil:
but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek,
turn to him the other also.
41-And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile,
go with him twain.

The Lord who judges out of Zion & teaches of his ways:

John 5:22-23
FOR THE FATHER JUDGETH NO MAN,
BUT HATH COMMITTED ALL JUDGMENT UNTO THE SON:
23-That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father.
He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.

Until Christ came to earth, humanity was ill equipped to survive Godly perfection. All sinned, all came short of the glory & all died. Christ came to experience the human condition & from his vantage point he now serves humanity as both compassionate advocate as well as judge. THIS is true salvation. Because of his compassionate grace many now have the hope of resurrected, eternal lives.

Hosea clearly states that this futuristic society of peace is a latter-day event:

Hosea 3:5
Afterward shall the children of Israel return,
& seek the Lord their God, & David their king;
& shall fear the Lord & his goodness in the latter days.

In the meantime, Israel as it stands today satisfies certain prophesies found in the book of Zechariah:

Zechariah 12: 7-8
The Lord also shall save the tents of Judah first,
that the glory of the house of David & the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem
do not magnify themselves against Judah.
8-In that day shall the Lord defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem;
& he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David,
& the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the Lord before them.

What follows will be a series of Old Testament scriptures in no particular order that should nevertheless be very enlightening.

Psalms 22:1-2;6-20
Prophesy of King David 700 years BC:
My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
why art thou so far from helping me, & from the words of my roaring?
2-O my God, I cry in the daytime, but thou hearest not;
& in the night season, & am not silent.
6-But I am a worm, & no man;
a reproach of men, & despised of the people.

7-All they that see me laugh me to scorn
they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,
8-He trusted on the Lord that he would deliver him:
let hem deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.

9-But thou art he that took me out of the womb:
thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts.
10-I was cast upon thee from the womb.:
thou art my God from my mother's belly.

11-Be not far from me; for trouble is near;
for there is none to help.
12-Many bulls have compassed me:
strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.
13-They gaped upon me with their mouths,
as a ravening & a roaring lion.

14-I am poured out like water, & all my bones are out of joint:
my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.

15-My strength is dried up like a potsherd; & my tongue cleaveth to my jaws;
& thou hast brought me into the dust of death.
16-For dogs have compassed me:
the assembly of the wicked have enclosed me:
they pierced my hands & my feet.

17-I may tell all my bones: they look & stare upon me.
18-They part my garments among them,
& cast lots upon my vesture.

19-But be not thou far from me, O Lord: On my strength,
haste thee to help me.

Compare King David's prophetic vision written about 700 years before Christ's arrival against the New Testament crucifixion event:


Mark 15:29-30
And they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, & saying,
Ah, thou that destroyest the temple, & buildest it in three days,
30-Save thyself, & come down from the cross.

Mark 15:24
And when they had crucified him, they parted his garments,
casting lots upon them, what every man should take.

As for David's mention of pierced hands & feet, I'm going to ask you to return to the non-PDF version of this text found on the Letters3 page on WisdomAboveGold.com. At this exact juncture in the text you will find links to 2 videos that I strongly encourage you to take the time to watch. The speaker is a Messianic Rabbi with a VERY important message. Please hear him out.

CHRIST AS THE HUMBLE KING:

Old Testament Prophecy:

Zechariah 9:9
Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem:
behold, thy King cometh unto thee:
he is just, & having salvation;
lowly, & riding upon as ass, & upon a colt the foal of an ass.

New Testament-prophesy fulfilled:

Luke 19:35-38
....and they cast their garments upon the colt,
and they set Jesus thereon.
36-And as he went, they spread their garments in the way.
37-And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives,
the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice
& praise God with a loud voice
for all the mighty works that they had seen;
38-Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord:
peace in heaven, & glory in the highest.

Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

4-And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair,
& a leathern girdle about his lions;
& his meat was locusts & wild honey.

Matthew 11:9-10
(Christ referencing John the Baptist:)
But what went ye out for to see? A prophet?
yea, I say unto you, & more than a prophet.
10-For this is he, of whom it is written,
Behold, I send my messenger before thy face,
which shall prepare thy way before thee.

Matthew 17:10-13
10-And his disciples asked him (Christ), saying,
Why then say the scribes that Elias (Elijah) must first come?
11-And Jesus answered & said unto them,
Elias truly shall first come, & restore all things.
12-But I say unto you, That Elias is come already & they knew him not,
but have done unto him whatsoever they listed.
13-Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.

5-And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple,

Old Testament prophecy

Jeremiah 7:25-26
Since the day that your fathers came forth out of the land of Egypt unto this day,
I have even sent unto you all my servants the prophets,
daily rising up early & sending them:
26-Yet they hearkened not unto me,
nor would incline their ear,
but hardened their neck...

Ezekiel 34:2,5,9-10,23
2-Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel,
prophesy, & say unto them,
Thus saith the Lord God unto shepherds;
Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves!
should not the shepherds feed the flocks?

5-And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd:
& they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered.

9-Therefore, O ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD;
10-Thus saith the Lord God;
Behold I am against the shepherds;
& I will require my flock at their hand,
& cause them to cease from feeding the flock;
neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more;
for I will deliver may flock from their mouth,
that they may not be meat for them.

23-And I will set up one shepherd over them,
& he shall feed them,
even my servant David;
he shall feed them, & he shall be their shepherd.

And he (Christ) began to speak unto them
(chief priests, scribes & elders in the temple) by parables:
'A certain man planted a vineyard, & set a hedge about it,
& digged a place for the winefat,
& built a tower, & let it out to husbandmen,
& went into a far country.
2-And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a servant,
that he might receive from the husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard.
3-And they caught him, & beat him, & sent him away empty.
4-And again he sent unto them another servant;
& at him they cast stones, & wounded him in the head,
& sent him away shamefully handled.
5-And again he sent another; & him they killed, & many others
(God's prophets & watchmen);
beating some, & killing some.
6-Having yet therefore one son, his wellbeloved,
he sent him also last unto them, saying,
They will reverence my son.
7-But those husbandmen said amongst themselves,
This is the heir; come, let us kill him, & the inheritance shall be ours.
8-And they took him, & killed him, & cast him out of the vineyard.
(Christ here prophesied his own death.)
9-What shall therefore the lord of the vineyard do?
he will come & destroy the husbandmen, & will give the vineyard unto others.
10-And have ye not read this scripture;
The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner:
11-This was the Lord's doing, & it is marvellous in our eyes?'

12-And they sought to lay hold on him, but feared the people:
for they knew that he had spoken the parable against them:
& they left him, & went their way.

John 10:11-13,17,18 (Christ speaking:)
I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
12-But he that is a hireling, & not the shepherd,
whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming,
& leaveth the sheep, & fleeth:
& the wolf catcheth them, & scattereth the sheep.
13The hireling fleeth, because he is a hireling, & careth not for the sheep.
17-......I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
18-No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself.....

There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer

Old Testament Prophecy:

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

New Testament-Prophecy Fulfilled:

And it came to pass in those days,
that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus
that all the world should be taxed.
2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
4 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:)
5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife,
being great with child.
6 And so it was, that, while they were there,
the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
7 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
