May 29: Messianic prophecies

The Jews had been waiting for the promised “Prophet like Moses.”  God had

warned them that there would be many false prophets.  And yet, although Yeshua fulfilled every prophesy the Hebrew prophets had described, still many were unwilling to accept Him.

Deuteronomy 18:15-22

“The Lord your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your midst, from your brethren. Him you shall hear, according to all you desired of the Lord your God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, ‘Let me not hear again the voice of the Lord my God, nor let me see this great fire anymore, lest I die.’

 “And the Lord said to me: ‘What they have spoken is good.  I will raise up for them a Prophet like you from among their brethren, and will put My words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him.  And it shall be that whoever will not hear My words, which He speaks in My name, I will require it of him.  But the prophet who presumes to speak a word in My name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet shall die.’  And if you say in your heart, ‘How shall we know the word which the Lord has not spoken?’— when a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the thing does not happen or come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him.

God’s warning about false prophets is still necessary today.  The test for a prophet is that every word must be specific and come to pass exactly.  Only Yeshua did, is and will fulfill every prophesy completely and exactly.
