While evangelizing on the streets, I frequently hear, “The Bible was just written by men.” And I agree. The Bible was written by men, but it was inspired by God. These mighty, courageous men spoke the truth as it was given to them—often to their own demise. To have a good answer for those still seeking with an open mind, I wrote this prophecy tract outlining some amazing prophecies that only God could have predicted by His inspired word.
The Dead Sea Scrolls were found around 1946 in the caves of Qumran by a Muslim boy. They have been carbon dated to be nearly 2,000 years old (300BC-100BC). Nearly all the Prophet Isaiah’s writings are found in them and line up perfectly with the modern-day Scriptures. Why is this important? Because it contradicts the narrative that the Bible has changed over time. This provides proof that the prophecies of Jesus were not written after the fact. Carbon dating proves that Isaiah’s prophecies were first, and he lived hundreds of years before Jesus.
There is no better place where you can rest in confidence of the veracity of Bible prophecy than in the Book of Isaiah. You may read many of these prophecies below, as well as some powerful prophecies from other Old Testament books.
1. The place of Jesus’s visitation will be Galilee
“By the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, in Galilee of the Gentiles. The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light...” (Isaiah 9:2).
2. This Great Visitor will have many names and roles
“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son 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” (Isaiah 9:6).
3. The Messiah will be born of a Virgin in Bethlehem
In Isaiah 7:14, he writes this about Jesus: “Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel (God with us).” This prophecy was fulfilled in Matthew 1:18: “Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit.”
Several hundred years before Jesus, the prophet Micah similarly writes, “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth to Me The One to be Ruler in Israel, Whose goings forth are from of old, From everlasting” (Micah 5:2). This prophecy was fulfilled in the Gospel of Matthew. “Wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, ‘Where is He who has been born King of the Jews?’” (Matthew 2:1-2). And all the chief priests and scribes said, “In Bethlehem of Judah” (Matthew 2:5). Don’t miss the added irony here; Bethlehem means “house of bread.” And Jesus was later described as “The bread of life.”
4. Jesus prophesied about destruction of the temple and disaster for Judea
In Mark’s Gospel, he writes: “Then as He went out of the temple, one of His disciples said to Him, ‘Teacher, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here!’ And Jesus answered and said to him, ‘Do you see these great buildings? Not one stone shall be left upon another, that shall not be thrown down.’” (Mark 13:1-2). Matthew states in his Gospel, “Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains” (Matthew 14:16). This prediction by Jesus was fulfilled 37 years later (70 AD) with the destruction of the temple at Jerusalem and the annihilation of over one million Jews. This event is described in detail by the Roman historian Josephus (37 AD-100 AD) in his writings The Works of Josephus 3: “Now the number of those that were carried captive during this whole war was collected to be 97,000 as was the number of those who perished during the whole siege as 1,100,000.” In the Encyclopedia Britannica: “By August 70 AD the Romans had breached the final defenses and massacred much of the remaining population. They also destroyed the 2nd temple” (420).
5. Isaiah prophesied about the Suffering Servant
The prophet Isaiah predicted that a man would come to “bear the sins of many.” This prophecy describes Christ’s crucifixion, the reason for it, and man’s reaction. Read below in Isaiah 53:5 as he describes Jesus 700 years before His birth: “But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.” John writes in his Gospel, “So then Pilate took Jesus and scourged Him. And the soldiers twisted a crown of thorns and put it on His head” (John 19:1-2). Later he writes, “And He, bearing His cross, went out to a place called the Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha, where they crucified Him” (John 19:17-18). In 1 Peter 2:24, it is written, “[He] Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree.” And in 2 Corinthians 5:21 Paul writes, “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”
6. Messiah’s hands and feet will be pierced, and they will cast lots (gamble) for His clothing
In Psalm 22, David speaks of the Messiah’s crucifixion nearly 1000 years before the event: “They pierced My hands and My feet” (Psalm 22:16). Further down in the Psalm, David writes, “They divide My garments among them, and for My clothing they cast lots.” In Matthew 27:35, he writes, “Then they crucified Him, and divided His garments, casting lots, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet [David].”
7. Messiah would enter Jerusalem riding on a donkey
Five hundred years before the birth of Jesus, the prophet Zechariah predicted that the Messiah would enter Jerusalem riding on a donkey. Zechariah 9:9 states “Behold, your King is coming to you; He is just and having salvation, lowly and riding on a donkey, a colt, the foal of a donkey.” This picture of the Jewish Majestic Messiah who has come to save His people from Roman rule riding on a lowly donkey would be paramount to sacrilege, unthinkable to the Jewish believer. The Messiah—the new king—should have a grander entrance than that. You can read about this prophecy’s fulfillment in Luke 19:28-40.
8. A nation will be rebuilt in one day
The total destruction of Jerusalem which Jesus predicted devastated the nation of Israel and scattered her people for nearly 2,000 years. Yet, Isaiah prophesied Israel would be reborn in a single day. “Before she was in labor, she gave birth; before her pain came, she delivered a male child. Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once? For as soon as Zion was in labor, She gave birth to her children” (Isaiah 66:7-8). This is exactly what happened on May 14th, 1948. The Jewish people, coming from various nations throughout the world, were brought together after the horrors of the Holocaust. They believed in the promises of God and were once again gathered in Israel and the nation was born when England and America recognized her as a nation. After 2000 years, the nation of Israel was reborn in a day. Yes, this was all prophesied by Isaiah and was fulfilled in 1948. This birth of the nation of Israel is vital to every Christian because the Book of Revelation in the New Testament predicts Armageddon will take place over Israel.
9. Jesus gave one final prophecy
In John’s Gospel, Jesus states, “For the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice and come forth—those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation” (John 5:28-29). Jesus is telling of a future day of final judgment where He will judge all mankind according to their deeds and faith in Him. I pray you believe this last prophecy.
In the Book of Hebrews, it states “And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account” (Hebrews 4:13). The Bible states that our Creator will judge us for what we have done. How do you think you will do? The Bible also says, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). Do you think you are a good person? Maybe compared to other people we may look good and can justify ourselves. But God is grading us against His own holiness. When Jesus taught, He took the teaching of the Law to an entirely different level than the religious leaders prior to Himself. He was saying that even our thought life must be perfect. He said if you even look at a woman with lustful thoughts you are guilty of adultery, or fornication with her in your heart. This sin is so prevalent now with the easy access to pornography on our phones. It’s ruining marriages. Have you ever coveted or envied (the feeling of having a strong desire for the things that other people have)? Have you ever lied? Have you ever misused God’s Holy name? This was punishable by death in the Old Testament.
If you are found by God to be a lying, blasphemous, adulterer at heart who has envied other people, you will be found guilty like the rest of us on judgment day. Will you go to Heaven or Hell? The Bible says Hell. You see, the Ten Commandments are a part of God’s moral law. We broke this law with our sin, but Jesus paid the fine. That is why He said, “It is finished [Tetelestai]” on the cross. This meant that our debt was paid in full. That’s what Jesus did on that cross! “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him” (2 Corinthians 5:21). You see, this is the hidden wisdom of God that He ordained before the ages for our glory (1 Corinthians 2:7). He knew we couldn’t keep His commandments without His help, so He made a way for us to become righteous so we can be with Him. This righteousness is received through simple, humble belief in God’s Son, Jesus, as our Savior. When we accept His gift, we become Holy in His eyes. For unholy cannot be with Holy without being consumed, as when Moses wanted to see God. God said, “no man shall see me, and live” (Exodus 33:20). So how can we live eternally with God? We must become righteous through Christ by doing two things: First, repent: we must agree with God that we have sinned and need to turn from our way to His way. Next, we place our trust in His substitutional sacrifice. Trust only in the Lamb of God who paid the ransom of our debt that we accrued through sinning. There is nothing we can do to save ourselves. “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, NOT OF WORKS, lest anyone should boast” (Ephesians 2:8-10).
We cannot say, “God, I did this good work and that good work. You owe me heaven!” God will not be mocked or bribed. “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved” (John 3:17). And as God promised and He cannot lie, we are granted eternal life with Him forever. Amen.
