THE MESSIAH

WHAT MUST THE MESSIAH DO TO PROVE HE HAS COME? HE MUST SUFFER FOR OUR SINS, TRANSGRESSIONS AND INIQUITIES AS FORETOLD BY THE PROPHET ISAIAH 53.5**BUT HE WAS PIERCED FOR OUR TRANSGRESSIONS, HE WAS CRUSHED FOR OUR INIQUITIES; THE PUNISHMENT THAT BROUGHT US PEACE WAS UPON HIM, AND BY HIS WOUNDS WE ARE HEALED.

WHERE DOES THE BIBLE SAY HE WAS WOUNDED? HIS HANDS AND FEET WILL BE PIERCED: PSALMS 22:16**DOGS (WICKED MEN) HAVE SURROUNDED ME; A BAND OF EVIL MEN HAS ENCIRCLED ME. THEY HAVE PIERCED MY HANDS AND MY FEET** ZECHARIAH 13:6**IF SOMEONE ASKS HIM, "WHAT ARE THESE WOUNDS ON YOUR BODY?" HE WILL ANSWER, "THE WOUNDS I WAS GIVEN AT THE HOUSE (TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM) OF MY FRIENDS."

HIS BACK AND FACE WILL BE SMITTEN (STRIKE SHARPLY): MICAH 5:1**THEY WILL STRIKE ISRAELíS RULER (CHRIST, THE MESSIAH) ON THE CHEEK WITH A ROD. **ISAIAH 50:5-6**THE SOVEREIGN LORD (ADONAI ELOHIM) HAS OPENED MY EARS, AND I HAVE NOT BEEN REBELLIOUS; I OFFERED MY BACK TO THOSE WHO BEAT ME, MY CHEEKS TO THOSE WHO PULLED OUT BY BEARD: I DID NOT HIDE MY FACE FROM MOCKING AND SPITTING.

NOT ONE BONE IN HIS BODY SHALL BE BROKEN: **PSALM 34:20**HE PROTECTS ALL HIS BONES, NOT ONE OF THEM WILL BE BROKEN.

THE MESSIAH IS BEATEN SO BADLY IN BIBLE PROPHECY, THAT HIS APPEARANCE IS DISFIGURED MORE THAN ANY MAN: **ISAIAH 52:14**JUST AS THERE WERE MANY WHO WERE APPALLED AT HIM, HIS APPEARANCE WAS SO DISFIGURED BEYOND THAT OF ANY MAN AND HIS FORM MARRED BEYOND HUMAN LIKENESS.

TO FULFILL BIBLE PROPHECY WHAT ELSE MUST THE MESSIAH ENDURE: **ISAIAH 53:8-10**BY OPPRESSION (UNJUST AND CRUEL USE OF POWER) AND  HE WAS TAKEN AWAY (OUT OF PRISON) AND WHO CAN SPEAK OF HIS DESCENDANTS? FOR HE WAS CUT OFF FROM THE LAND OF THE LIVING, FOR THE TRANSGRESSION (SINS) OF MY PEOPLE HE WAS STRICKEN. HE WAS ASSIGNED A GRAVE WITH THE WICKED AND WITH THE RICH IN HIS DEATH, THOUGH HE HAD DONE NO VIOLENCE, NOR WAS ANY DECEIT IN HIS MOUTH. **ISAIAH 53:12 **THEREFORE I (SOVEREIGN LORD, ADONAI ELOHIM) WILL GIVE HIM A PORTION AMONG THE GREAT, AND HE WILL DIVIDE THE SPOILS WITH THE STRONG, BECAUSE HE POURED OUT HIS LIFE (BLOOD) UNTO DEATH, AND WAS NUMBERED WITH THE TRANSGRESSORS. FOR HE BORE THE SIN OF MANY, AND MADE INTERCESSION (SAVE FROM DESTRUCTION AT JUDGMENTS) FOR THE TRANSGRESSORS (ALL SINNERS-WHETHER JEWISH OR GENTILE).

HE WILL BECOME RESURRECTED AFTER 3 DAYS: **HOSEA 6:2-3**AFTER 2 DAYS HE WILL REVIVE US, ON THE THIRD DAY HE WILL RESTORE US (THE MESSIAH THE SACRIFICED LAMB OF THE SOVEREIGN LORD, RISEN FROM THE DEAD AND HAS REDEEMED OUR SOULS FROM HELL) THAT WE MAY LIVE IN HIS PRESENCE. LET US ACKNOWLEDGE THE LORD; LET US PRESS ON TO ACKNOWLEDGE HIM. AS SURELY AS THE SUN RISES, HE WILL APPEAR; HE WILL COME TO US LIKE THE WINTER RAINS, LIKE THE SPRING RAINS THAT WATER THE EARTH.

WHAT MUST I DO TO RECEIVE THE PROMISES OF THE MESSIAH? **JOHN 1:17**FOR THE LAW WAS GIVEN THROUGH MOSES. GRACE AND TRUTH CAME THROUGH JESUS CHRIST. **ACTS 13:39**THROUGH HIM (THE MESSIAH, CHRIST JESUS) EVERYONE WHO BELIEVES IS JUSTIFIED (VINDICATED AND SAVED FOR ETERNAL LIFE) FROM EVERYTHING YOU COULD NOT BE JUSTIFIED FROM THE LAW OF MOSES. **WHEN YOU REPENT (FEEL SORRY FOR YOUR SINS), PRAY TO THE SOVEREIGN LORD AND ASK HIS SON, THE MESSIAH, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST TO COME INTO YOUR HEART, AND YOU WILL BE GIVEN ETERNAL LIFE!
