Yeshua/Jesus – The Messiah

Deuteronomy 18:18-19:
Moshe (Moses) brought to the Israelites G-d’s promise of the coming Messiah with this prophecy:

"I will raise up for them a Prophet like you from among their brethren, and I 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."

Over 80 prophecies have been listed here. All these prophecies could not have been fulfilled by Yeshua unless He was the Messiah. How could He control His birth? What false Messiah would submit to Yeshua’s death and burial? What chance is there of one person fulfilling these and more? It’s an impossibility unless you are the real Messiah!

Yeshua has fulfilled every prophecy relating to His first coming.

Now we must prepare ourselves for what the Bible says about His second coming at the conclusion of the last generation. Are you prepared to accept Yeshua as Your Messiah – as the Messiah of G-d?
