JESUS IS THE REAL DEAL
Just in case it slipped by you, the Old Testament is the part of the Bible that was written before Jesus was born. Actually, its writings were completed 450 years before Jesus was born. Some of the books were written well over a thousand years before Jesus was born.
Why are you telling me that? Because, Jesus fulfilled so many Old Testament prophecies.
Hundreds of years after they were penned, Jesus walked them out. He talked them out. He brought those words to life and let everyone know God’s Word is true. It can be trusted and it’s real.
Did you know there’s a big argument over how many Old Testament prophecies Jesus actually fulfilled? That’s because many of the prophecies are actually cryptic – that means they are mysterious, obscure or hidden.
The good news is, there are at least 300 prophecies that are just outright, in-your-face words pointing to Jesus as the Messiah.
So, let me as you this: What are the chances of one person fulfilling eight prophecies? The answer is one in 100,000,000,000,0000,000. I don’t even know if there is a word for that many zeroes!
With that in mind, what are the chances of one person fulfilling 48 prophecies? That would be one in 10 to the 157th power. And if that’s not enough, what are the chances of one person fulfilling 300 prophecies? I’ll tell you what that is. It’s indescribable, and guys, that’s what Jesus did.
“Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill.” – Matthew 5:17
Could a mere man purposefully do this throughout his lifetime? No, because mortal man has no control over his circumstances. Remember, many of those prophesies were about Jesus’ birth and childhood – things He would have no control over.
So, here’s what’s real: Jesus is the real deal. He just is. Case closed.
