Bible Strong-Prophecy Fulfilled, April 2020

I have read there are approximately 2,500 prophecies in the Bible with 2,000 already fulfilled. The rest to be fulfilled in the future. Jesus Himself has fulfilled over 400 prophesies written in the Bible.

A prophet is a messenger, selected by God who relays communications from God to humans on earth, on His behalf.

God used prophets throughout the Bible to communicate His plans for the future. Prophecy is almost 1/3 of the Bible and a great foundation for our faith. As each prophecy is fulfilled, it brings a stronger faith to us who are reading it. It shows us what a mighty God we serve and that nothing is impossible for our God.

Deuteronomy 18:18 speaks of a coming prophet who will be like Moses whom God, spoke to and through him to declare the words of God. It is a divine prophecy given by God through Moses.

Deuteronomy 18:18 I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their fellow Israelites, and I will put my words in his mouth. He will tell them everything I command him.

Amos 3:7 Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets.

There were many prophets in the Bible to include Jesus.

Below you will find examples of prophecy spoken and prophecy fulfilled. Just a sampling.

Prophecy

Micah 5:2 But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.

Prophecy Fulfilled

Matthew 2:1 After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem.

Prophecy

Luke 22:34 And He said, I say to you, Peter, the rooster will not crow today until you have denied three times that you know Me.

Prophecy Fulfilled

Luke 22 54-62 Then they seized him and led him away, bringing him into the high priest’s house, and Peter was following at a distance. And when they had kindled a fire in the middle of the courtyard and sat down together, Peter sat down among them. Then a servant girl, seeing him as he sat in the light and looking closely at him, said, This man also was with him  But he denied it, saying, Woman, I do not know him.  And a little later someone else saw him and said, you also are one of them. But Peter said, Man, I am not. And after an interval of about an hour still another insisted, saying, certainly this man also was with him, for he too is a Galilean.  But Peter said, Man, I do not know what you are talking about. And immediately, while he was still speaking, the rooster crowed.  And the Lord turned and looked at Peter. And Peter remembered the saying of the Lord, how he had said to him, Before the rooster crows today, you will deny me three times.  And he went out and wept bitterly.

Prophecy

Luke 18:31-33 Then He took the twelve aside and said to them, Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and all things which are written through the prophets about the Son of Man will be accomplished. For He will be handed over to the Gentiles, and will be mocked and mistreated and spit upon, and after they have scourged Him, they will kill Him; and the third day He will rise again.

Prophecy Fulfilled

Matthew 27:2 and they bound Him, and led Him away and delivered Him to Pilate the governor.

Mark 15:15 Wishing to satisfy the crowd, Pilate released Barabbas for them, and after having Jesus scourged, he handed Him over to be crucified.

Matthew 26:67 Then they began to spit in Jesus’ face and beat him with their fists. And some slapped him.

Luke 24:1-8 On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, why do you look for the living among the dead?  He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again. Then they remembered his words.

Prophecy

Mark 14:18-20 As they were reclining at the table and eating, Jesus said, Truly I say to you that one of you will betray Me–one who is eating with Me. They began to be grieved and to say to Him one by one, Surely not I? And He said to them, It is one of the twelve, one who dips with Me in the bowl.

Prophecy Fulfilled

Luke 22:1-6 Now the Festival of Unleavened Bread, called the Passover, was approaching, and the chief priests and the teachers of the law were looking for some way to get rid of Jesus, for they were afraid of the people. Then Satan entered Judas, called Iscariot, one of the Twelve. And Judas went to the chief priests and the officers of the temple guard and discussed with them how he might betray Jesus. They were delighted and agreed to give him money. He consented, and watched for an opportunity to hand Jesus over to them when no crowd was present.

Prophecy

Isaiah 53:4-5 Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities, the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his stripes we are healed.

Prophecy Fulfilled

John 19:1-3 Then Pilate had Jesus taken and whipped. The soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head, and dressed him in a purple robe. Over and over they went up to him and said, Greetings, king of the Jews! And they slapped him in the face.

Luke 23:26 As the soldiers led him away, they seized Simon from Cyrene, who was on his way in from the country, and put the cross on him and made him carry it behind Jesus.

Matthew 27:35 The soldiers nailed Jesus to a cross. Then they threw dice to divide his clothes between them.

John 19:34 One of the soldiers, however, pierced his side with a spear, and immediately blood and water flowed out.

The Bible tells us that at the time of Jesus’ crucifixion He had been beaten with a whip with many stripes and a crown of thorns was placed upon His head. The crushing weight of the cross He was carrying weighed Him down to the point He couldn’t carry it alone, He was then nailed to a cross, and He was pierced with a spear. Praise You Lord Jesus!

Prophecy

Psalm 69:21 They put gall in my food and gave me vinegar for my thirst.

Prophecy Fulfilled

John 19:21 A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ lips.

Prophecy Fulfilled

John 19:32, 36

So the soldiers came, and broke the legs of the first man and of the other who was crucified with Him; but coming to Jesus, when they saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs. Now these things happened so that the Scripture would be fulfilled: Not one of His bones will be broken.

Prophecy

Isaiah 53:9 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.

Prophecy Fulfilled

Matthew 27:57-60 When it was evening, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who himself had also become a disciple of Jesus. This man went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Then Pilate ordered it to be given to him. And Joseph took the body and wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock; and he rolled a large stone against the entrance of the tomb and went away.

Prophecy

Matthew 1:21-23 She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins. Now all this took place to fulfill what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet: Behold the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a Son and they shall call his name Immanuel, which translated means, God with us.  And Joseph awoke from his sleep and did as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and took Mary as his wife, but kept her a virgin until she gave birth to a Son; and he called His name Jesus.

Prophecy Fulfilled

Luke 2:7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth.

Jesus prophesied future events as well. Every word is true and will happen in God’s timing.

Prophecy

Matthew 24:14-16, 21 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.

So when you see standing in the holy place the abomination that causes desolation, spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand— then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again.

Matthew 24:29-31 Immediately after the distress of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.

Prophecy Fulfilled

In the twinkling of an eye, when you least expect it, when the trumpet sounds, in God’s timing. Watch for it!

God bless. Heal the brokenhearted, bind up all their wounds.
