The Old Testament (OT) Bible Prophecy concerning the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ from Isaiah was fulfilled nearly 700 years later. Isaiah, a true prophet of God, prophesied as we read in the OT scripture Isaiah 9:6-7, “For unto us a Child (Jesus) is born, unto us a Son (Jesus) is given; and the government will be upon his shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgement and justice from that time forward, even forever.” Another bible verse from Isaiah prophesies “God with us” in Isaiah 7:14, “Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.”
Another prophet of God, Jeremiah, prophesied about the coming of Jesus from the seed of King David in Jeremiah 23:5-6, “Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, and he shall reign as king and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. In his days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell securely. And this is the name by which he will be called: The LORD is our righteousness.” Now, when Jesus was born in Bethlehem, this was prophesied by the prophet Micah in the OT Micah 5:2, “But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, who are too little to be among the clans of Judah, from you shall come forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel, whose coming forth is from of old, from ancient days.” After the birth of Jesus, king Herod had slaughtered all the young children in an attempt to kill Jesus. Joseph was warned in a dream to flee to Egypt and remain until Herod died. This is when God recognizes His Son Jesus, an heir of David, will come out of Egypt in Hosea 11:1, “When Israel was a child, I loved him, and out of Egypt I called my son. “ At this time, Satan was attempting to destroy God’s seed from God’s original warning at the Garden of Eden as stated in Genesis 3:15, “And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed;
He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel.” There are other scriptures that illustrate Satan’s attempt to destroy God’s seed – Genesis 4:8, Genesis 6:1-8, Matthew 2:16-17, Romans 16:20, 2 Peter 2:4-10, 1 John 3:7-9, Jude 1:6, Revelation 12:1-6.
If the OT scriptures of the holy bible (inspired word of God) predicted God’s Son Jesus, our Lord and Savior, nearly 700 years before it happened, shows that God’s word is true and righteous. There are many OT scriptures that predicted of our coming savior Jesus. Some are listed here (not all) that are found in the scriptures – Isaiah 7:14, Isaiah 9:6-7, Isaiah 11:1-5, Isaiah 11:10, Isaiah 25:8-9, Isaiah 26:19, Isaiah 35:4-7, Isaiah 49:1-8, Isaiah 52:13-53:12, Isaiah 55:3-4, Jeremiah 31:31-34, Ezekiel 37:24-28, Daniel 2:44-45, Daniel 7:13-14, Daniel 9:24-26, Hosea 11:1, Hosea 13:14, Joel 2:28-32, Micah 5:2-5, Zechariah 3:8-10, Zechariah 6:12-13, Zechariah 9:9-10, Zechariah 12:10-11, Malachi 3:1, Malachi 4:5-6, Psalms 22:16-18, Psalms 89:3-4. Therefore, we all need Jesus and will not enter eternal life in heaven with God through Jesus our Savior unless we repent, confess, ask Him to save us by living in us, and make Him our Lord and Savior by becoming a changed creation where our old self has passed away and we are resurrected with Christ as a new creation.
