Unlocking the Messianic Prophecies
This short booklet describes the Messianic prophecies and their fulfilment. It was after the fall, when the outlook for Adam and Eve seemed bleak that the first Messianic promise was given (Genesis 3:15). Eve was promised that one her descendants would destroy the serpent (Satan). More details were added over time, how he would smite the wicked and all nations would be blessed through him. He would usher in a reign of peace, happiness and safety when nature will be changed, harmful animals will become tame, and people would live forever. The ultimate goal of the Deliverer is to save the lost restore the earth to its Edenic state. David is a type of the Messiah, his early life when he was persecuted prefigures the sufferings of the Messiah before receiving his kingdom. The Messiah brings the light of salvation and God's law to the Gentiles. Habakkuk describes his hidden power as glory emanating from the wounds in his side. He is also called the Suffering Servant who is rejected and despised by men, he dies for the people and makes intercession for them (Isaiah 53). Later he sees the travail of his soul and is satisfied; many would be eternally saved by his sacrifice. Often neglected is his role as a priest, and how he would suddenly come to his temple. The basis of his divinity is given from the Hebrew Bible, and how it was prophesied that he would rise from the dead and ascend to the right hand of God. It is there that he performs his role as High Priest in the heavenly temple before returning to earth in glory to deliver his people. The fulfilment of these prophecies is covered in the last chapter. Not everyone is guaranteed a place in his kingdom unless they put their faith in the Messiah and obey God's holy laws. It is vitally important to understand who the Messiah is and believe in him while the door of mercy is still open.
