Where does the Old Testament predict the coming of Jesus Christ? Welcome, my friends. Think not that the Almighty only used the 'psalmists' to declare His working.
The 'predictions' of the 'Coming Anointed King of Israel' was not just in the Psalms. Oh, my no!
There are many Old Testament prophecies about Jesus Christ. The following are some of the clearest and most important ones I have found. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
PROPHECIES OF - HIS FIRST COMING [BECAUSE YOU SEE, HE WILL RETURN!]
Regarding the 'birth' of Jesus, it is written in Isaiah 7:14; Fulfilled, Matthew 1:23:
“Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.” ['God with us'] In the 'Christian' 'belief', this Scripture tells of the 'incarnation' of Jesus Christ, meaning, God becomes present in the physical 'form' of a Man Otherwise, God, the Father is 'Spirit'. [John 4:24] When Jesus was grown, He acknowledged this to be 'true', 'reality'. When discussing with His disciples during His last week, His final instructions to them, He stated when asked to show them the Father, as written at John 14:9 '"..Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father;....".
[REMEMBER - AS YOU 'COUNT THE COST' FOR BEING A 'FOLLOWER OF JESUS', 'THE SERVANT IS NO GREATER THAN THE MASTER'. ONE OF THE REASONS JESUS DIED, IS BECAUSE HE DID NOT LIE, BUT JESUS DIED BECAUSE HE SPOKE THE TRUTH!! FOR REAL! THE SAME COULD HAPPEN TO ANY OF US.
[Matthew 10:11-39;Luke 14:25-35, John 15:9-25]
Further, in Isaiah 9:6, it is written; Fulfilled, Luke 2:11:
“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” The promised Child, the 'Seed of the Woman', of the 'House of David', [Genesis 3:15; Matthew 1:1-17]; will have as His 'birthright', 'authority and rule'. His Character shall be impeccable, as is shown in His 'descriptive names - 'Wonderful', 'Counselor'. He represents the totality of wisdom and knowledge, and, His Divinity is clearly stated in that He is 'Mighty God'. The 'fatherhood' of the Messiah, [the Christ, the Anointed One], is unequivocal - 'eternal'.
[Genesis 1:1; 1:26-28; 11:7; Matthew 28:18-19; John 1:1-3; John 10:30]
In the Book of the prophet Micah, 5:2 it is further written; Fulfilled, Luke 2:1-7:
“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for Me One who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.”
Please Remember as you study the Holy Scripture how Jesus would always remind the followers that things happened or He did things, so that the Scripture would be fulfilled, or, in accordance with what was written about Him. [Mark 14:49; Luke 24:1-50; Acts 1:1-11] At that time, the only Holy Scriptures were the Old Testament. This is why it is so very important to study the 'whole counsel of God', both, the Old Testament - the fore-telling of His Coming; and, the New Testament, which shows the accomplishment of His First Coming, and explains what it all means going forward from that time. [Acts 20:27] There are still predictions in both, the Old and the New Testament of yet, HIS SECOND COMING. It is only logical that we believe the future prophecies, as we have seen the prophecies regarding Him come to pass with respect to His Birth, Life, Ministry, Death and Resurrection. [In the future, I shall be posting profusely on His Second Coming. Stay tuned!]
Jesus has been to 'the Cross' 'It is Finished'! [John 19:30; Revelation 14:14; 19:12] He has His Crown. Will we get ours?? [1 Corinthians 9:24-27; Timothy 2:2:5; 4:7-8]. Then, 'come to the Cross'. First things, first.
JESUS, FROM THE CROSS TO THE CROWN. WE, ARE NOT GREATER THAN THE MASTER. OUR 'REWARDS' WILL ONLY BE, WHEN WE ARE GLORIFIED. LET US REMEMBER THIS. AMEN. AMEN.
