Friday – Prophets

Isaiah 7-9

Highlight Verses:

“Then Isaiah said, “Listen well, you royal family of David! Isn’t it enough to exhaust human patience? Must you exhaust the patience of my God as well? All right then, the Lord himself will give you the sign. Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel (which means ‘God is with us’).”

Isaiah 7:13-14 NLT

I find this amusing. Isaiah gives his most famous prediction of the Messiah as a result of losing patience with King Ahaz. There’s no way that Ahaz would be around for the fulfillment of that prophecy. But then, he addressed it to the royal family of David.

Ahaz may not have seen this prophecy fulfilled but we can. One scholar found 574 Old Testament verses predicting the Messiah.

Even conservative estimates point to Jesus fulfilling over 300 prophecies.

Today, we can look at this passage and the many others as proof that Jesus is who He says He is.

There is no other figure in history who was as thoroughly predicted.

Do these prophecies give you more confidence in believing that Jesus truly is the Messiah?

What is your favorite prophecy about Jesus?
