PROPHECY
FULFILLED 2
There is no better evidence of the
inspiration of the Holy Bible, and the
veracity of Jesus' claim to be the Son of
God, than the fulfillment of prophecies
made 400 to 1500 years before.

FULFILLED
"They that dwell in the wilderness
shall bow before him;
and his enemies shall lick the dust."
(Psalm 72:9)
Worshipped
by shepherds
"And there were in the same country
shepherds abiding in the field, keeping
watch over their flock by night.  (9)  And,
lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them,
and the glory of the Lord shone round
about them: and they were sore afraid.  
(10)  And the angel said unto them, Fear
not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of
great joy, which shall be to all people.  
(11)  For unto you is born this day in the
city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the
Lord.  (12)  And this shall be a sign unto
you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in
swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.  (13)  
And suddenly there was with the angel a
multitude of the heavenly host praising
God, and saying,  (14)  Glory to God in
the highest, and on earth peace, good will
toward men.  (15)  And it came to pass, as
the angels were gone away from them into
heaven, the shepherds said one to
another, Let us now go even unto
Bethlehem, and see this thing which is
come to pass, which the Lord hath made
known unto us."
(Luke 2:8-15)
The kings of Tarshish and
of the isles shall bring presents:
the kings of Sheba and Seba
shall offer gifts.
(Psalms 72:10)

And the Gentiles
shall come to thy light,
and kings to
the brightness of thy rising.
(Isaiah 60:3)
Honored
by great kings
Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of
Judaea in the days of Herod the king,
behold, there came wise men from the
east to Jerusalem, Saying, Where is he
that is born King of the Jews? for we have
seen his star in the east, and are come to
worship him. When Herod the king had
heard these things, he was troubled, and
all Jerusalem with him. And when he had
gathered all the chief priests and scribes
of the people together, he demanded of
them where Christ should be born. And
they said unto him, In Bethlehem of
Judaea: for thus it is written by the
prophet, And thou Bethlehem, in the land
of Juda, art not the least among the
princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come
a Governor, that shall rule my people
Israel. Then Herod, when he had privily
called the wise men, enquired of them
diligently what time the star appeared. And
he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go
and search diligently for the young child;
and when ye have found him, bring me
word again, that I may come and worship
him also. When they had heard the king,
they departed; and, lo, the star, which they
saw in the east, went before them, till it
came and stood over where the young
child was. When they saw the star, they
rejoiced with exceeding great joy. And
when they were come into the house, they
saw the young child with Mary his mother,
and fell down, and worshipped him: and
when they had opened their treasures,
they presented unto him gifts; gold, and
frankincense, and myrrh.
(Matthew 2:1-11)
"Thus saith the LORD,
which giveth the sun
for a light by day,
and the ordinances of the moon
and of the stars for a light by night,
which divideth the sea
when the waves thereof roar;
The LORD of hosts is his name: "
(Jeremiah 31:35)
Slaughter
of children
"Then Herod, when he saw that he was
mocked of the wise men, was exceeding
wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the
children that were in Bethlehem, and in all
the coasts thereof, from two years old and
under, according to the time which he had
diligently enquired of the wise men. Then
was fulfilled that which was spoken by
Jeremy the prophet, saying, In Rama was
there a voice heard, lamentation, and
weeping, and great mourning, Rachel
weeping for her children, and would not be
comforted, because they are not."
(Matthew 2:16-18)
"When Israel was a child,
then I loved him,
and called my son out of Egypt."
(Hosea 11:1)
Flight
to Egypt
"When he arose,
he took the young child
and his mother by night,
and departed into Egypt:
And was there until the death of Herod:
that it might be fulfilled
which was spoken of
the Lord by the prophet, saying,
Out of Egypt have I called my son."
(Matthew 2:14-15)
"The voice of him
that crieth in the wilderness,
Prepare ye the way of the LORD,
make straight in the desert
a highway for our God.
Every valley shall be exalted,
and every mountain and hill
shall be made low:
and the crooked
shall be made straight,
and the rough places plain:
And the glory of the LORD
shall be revealed,
and all flesh shall see it together:
for the mouth of the LORD
hath spoken it."
(Isaiah 40:3-5)
The Way
Prepared
"And he came into all the country about
Jordan, preaching the baptism of
repentance for the remission of sins;
As it is written in the book of the words of
Esaias the prophet, saying,
The voice of one crying in the wilderness,
Prepare ye the way of the Lord,
make his paths straight.
Every valley shall be filled,
and every mountain and hill
shall be brought low;
and the crooked shall be made straight,
and the rough ways
shall be made smooth;
And all flesh shall see
the salvation of God."
(Luke 3:3-6)
"Behold, I will send my messenger,
and he shall prepare the way
before me:
and the Lord, whom ye seek,
shall suddenly come to his temple,
even the messenger of the covenant,
whom ye delight in:
behold, he shall come,
saith the LORD of hosts."
(Malachi 3:1)
Preceded
by a Forerunner
"And when the messengers of John were
departed, he began to speak unto the
people concerning John,
What went ye out into the wilderness
for to see? A reed shaken with the wind?
... This is he, of whom it is written,
Behold, I send my messenger
before thy face,
which shall prepare thy way before thee."
(Luke 7:24, 27)
