God sent OVER 25 prophets to Israel only so that we would understand his plan for salvation of mankind would take place in Israel,not some other land. Starting with prophecy by prophets, a promise of a covenant, a virgin birth of Jesus Christ, His deity, death and resurrection. God raised prophet after prophet in Israel to review predictions of the coming Messiah.  Later the Messiah, Jesus Christ, was sent to Israel by God to fulfill what was revealed by the prophets, FROM GOD, in scripture.  God planned it throughout history, step-by-step.  The validity of what Jesus did and said was based on everything already revealed by GOD through the previous prophets in history OVER HUNDREDS OF YEARS, they were in agreement year after year, prophet after prophet.  🙂  Why would any other prophet come, hundreds of years later, contradicting all of God’s 25 previous prophets and God’s prophecies?  Does God make mistakes?  Dare you ask!  No.  He doesn’t.  Jesus Christ fulfilled OVER 50 Messianic, biblical, historical prophecies.  Who else can make such a claim?  No one.

If one believes IN these prophecies, yet DO NOT believe they’ve been fulfilled through Jesus Christ, then:

WHO were these prophecies about, 

WHEN will they come to pass, 

WHY have the disappeared,  

WHERE is this “Messiah” and; 

WHY did God make false claims to mankind in His word and allow this error to never be resolved with fulfillment of His plan?

If you believe God’s 25 prophets, and these 50+ prophecies are in fact incorrect/changed/corrupted/false, you deny God in the face of man.  It’s painfully obvious God doesn’t make mistakes and there is too much historical evidence to support the accuracy of the essence of God’s word for 2000+ years.  For this rejection, you will burn in hell.

Jesus said, “If you deny me (his deity) before man, I will deny you before my father in heaven (no entry).”

Here are just a few prophecies from the Old Testament, fulfilled in the New Testament through Jesus Christ himself.

PROPHECY: Zechariah 12:10 – And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him,as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

FULFILLMENT: John 19:18 – Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.

PROPHECY: Isaiah 53:12 – Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

FULFILLMENT: Luke 22:37, JESUS SAID, For I tell you, what is written must be fulfilled in Me: And He was counted among the outlaws. Yes, what is written about Me is coming to its fulfillment.

PROPHECY: Jeremiah 31:31 – Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant (promise) with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah.

FULFILLMENT: Matthew 26:28 – for this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for forgiveness of sins.
