Biblical Prophecy Studies:

Messianic Prophecies

Here is a complete list of the prophecies of the coming Messiah, as found in both the Torah, Old Testament, and rabbinical writings. There is no doubt left that Yahushuah indeed fulfilled the prophecies of Israel's Messiah.

Messianic Prophecies


The Everlasting Kingdom

IF ONE WERE TO SUMMARIZE THE MINISTRY OF OUR SAVIOR ON EARTH, it would be difficult to dismiss the strong and repeated emphasis on the Kingdom of Elohim. In fact, it was in the early part of His ministry that we are informed He began to proclaim but one central message: Matt. 4:17, "From that time Messiah began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND." How ironic and sad it is, that most Christians seem neither to proclaim, nor understand what our Savior meant by the synonymous terms, "Kingdom of Elohim" and "Kingdom of Heaven." Join us in this important look at the Divine Kingdom.

Ezekiel's Puzzling Prophecy

People often misunderstand Ezekiel's prophecies, but there is one particular prediction (Ezekiel 4:4-8) that even Biblical scholars find puzzling, and their misunderstanding has led to many quite varied interpretations. Some want to avoid it altogether, such as this surprising opinion found in the Jewish Mishnah (Megiloth iv.10): "This chapter is not to be included among the prophetical readings in the service of the Synagogue. The reason," says Rabbinowitz, "is because it contains a vehement denunciation of the apostasy and disloyalty of Israel." But Elohim will not let us just sweep sin under a rug and forget about it. There is a lesson here for us all to learn. Here is the fascinating answer to the prophetic puzzle.

Ezekiel's Three Sisters

An often ignored prophecy (Ezekiel 16:44-63) begins with as scathing an indictment as anything ever spoken through a prophet. Ezekiel specifically addresses Jerusalem: Again the word of YAHUAH came unto me, saying, “Son of man, cause Jerusalem to know her abominations,” (Ezekiel 16:1-2) Who are the three sisters of the prophecy and what is the prophetic destiny of each of them? Here is an interesting look to the future by the prophet that is almost completely ignored today by the Christian pulpits.

The Seventy Weeks Prophecy

The vision in the ninth chapter of the Book of Daniel, verses 24 through 27, has long been an intriguing mystery. It is an important prophecy, with ramifications in the birth, life, ministry, and death of the Messiah of Israel. If Yahushuah can be shown to have correctly fulfilled that prophecy, then He is truly without question the Son of Elohim and Savior of the World, and not an impostor as atheists and doubters have claimed. Additionally, the foundation of the prophetic system known as Futurism, or Dispensationalism, is centered upon an interpretation of these four verses of Daniel. Their belief that the prophecies’ 70th week is entirely future (cut off by a gap of unknown duration) provides the rationale for a future individual world Anti-Christ, prophecy concerning the Jews, and other supposed end of the age events.  In fact, two other prophetic systems, the Classical Historicist and Kingdom-Covenant, are also based on individual interpretations of Daniel’s prophecy. Let’s examine the three key dates involved and understand the true fulfillment of Daniel's prophecy.

The Year of Messiah's Birth

For many years every discussion of the date of Messiah’s birth has taken into consideration the belief that Herod the Great died in 4 B.C., so that Yahushuah must have been born at least that early. This date is supposed to be absolutely fixed by a lunar eclipse that took place on the night of 12/13 March in that year. Another eclipse of the moon, however, which met all the required circumstances, occurred on January 9 in 1 B.C., and a re-examination of all the relevant historical data leads to the conclusion that Herod more probably died at the end of January 1 B.C. This opens the way to a reconsideration of the historical records of the birth of Yahushuah that have been handed down by the Church Fathers, and an acceptance of the biblical account. Before the year 500 there were no less than ten Christian witnesses who agreed on the year in which Yahushuah was born. Here is the fascinating evidence for the correct time of Messiah's birth.

The Hebrew Foundation of Messiah's Church

Is the Christian Church a totally "gentile" church, built on a "gentile" foundation? Were the chosen people, Israel, set aside by Yah when the Church was founded? This is the teaching of most of our denominations today. For example, a leading dispensationalist author, the late M.R. DeHaan, summarized well this thinking: "GOD CHOSE THE ISRAELITES TO BE HIS PEOPLE, TO LEAD ALL THE REST OF THE NATIONS TO HIM IN THE END TIME. HOWEVER, ISRAEL FAILED, AND WHEN THE MESSIAH CAME NINETEEN HUNDRED YEARS AGO TO OFFER THE IDEAL MESSIANIC KINGDOM TO THE NATION OF ISRAEL, THEY REFUSED THEIR KING, THE KINGDOM WAS SET ASIDE" (The Jew & Palestine In Prophecy, p.1) Despite this common misconception, the Book of Acts tells us that for several years the Church was composed almost solely by Hebrew Christians. Here is a Christian early history lesson.

Did Elohim Deceive Abraham?

A most unfortunate state of affairs within Christian teaching today is the almost total ignorance of the many wonderful, foundational, and far-reaching prophecies given to the patriarch Abraham. Yet even on those rare occasions when ministers do consider the individual provisions of the Abrahamic Covenant, these magnificent promises are discounted, especially by mainstream evangelicals. As a typical example, Dr. S.H. Wilkinson states, “these promises were never meant to be taken literally.” Similarly, Dr. Louis Talbot is critical of what he considers “a slavishly literal interpretation of selected phases of prophecy.” This line of interpretation is taken by one author after another. Bible believers are thus discouraged from giving serious thought to any actual fulfillment of the provisions of the Abrahamic Covenant. It is not surprising that one of the central claims today is that the Abrahamic promises were not to be literally fulfilled! Yet Biblical evidence shows that these covenant promises were not just spiritual matters of the heart, but have had a literal, physical fulfillment in history. Here is the evidence!

The Dispensational Dilemma

In forty years of ministry work, I have never read a Dispensationalist book discussing the details of the supposed animal sacrifices themselves in a rebuilt Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. How would this work? What exactly would they have to do in this Temple? They could not just make up their own rules! If they want the Jewish people to be saved under the Old Covenant, then they would have to obey the rules of the Old Covenant...to the letter. Here we reveal what they would need to do according to the Tanak/Old Testament.

Blood Moon Prophetic Deception

Over the past several years Dispensationalist ministries had been in an absolute state of prophetic excitement over what scientists say is actually a normal, and fairly common, astronomical occurrence: lunar eclipses. Yes, this time it was somewhat less ordinary, being a tetrad—a series of four consecutive lunar eclipses—that will only occur eight times in this century. Still, it was not all that rare, yet televangelists talked as if we had been waiting for this since the resurrection of Messiah. In fact, there have been 62 tetrads since the first century A.D., none of which resulted in Messiah’s Second Coming. How deceivers have attempted to tie this into Scripture prophecy is a prime example of religious deception.

Politics and Prophecy

Nearly a century ago in the 1920's, a Christian journal of the time, The Banner of Israel, expounded upon the theological system called Dispensational Futurism in a series of articles by H.A. Marchant. The author stated that the followers of this belief were the leading opponents of true biblical teaching and that, "Those whose minds are saturated with various theories clustering round this delusion are very hard to convince." (1-21-1925, p.33) I believe he was correct in his assessment, and that it is also true today. Unfortunately, that form of theology is more prevalent than ever before due to popular modern authors such as Hal Lindsay and many others who have sold tens of millions of copies of their books. Even so, we are often asked, "What is Dispensationalism?" Here is the Biblical answer.
