*** FROM THE TIME OF THE OLD TESTAMENT, ISRAEL WAS LOOKING FOR HER MESSIAH ***

From the time of the Old Testament, Israel was looking for her Messiah, and when he came, those that were ready found him. The Lord Jesus Christ is the Messiah of Israel, the anointed one and God manifested in the flesh. He came to earth to die for our sins so that we could be reconciled to God. The LORD our God is one LORD (ref. Deuteronomy 6:4 ). Christians do not deny this. God is one God and God is tri-partite (the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost (who is also the Holy Spirit)) and so are we (mind, body, spirit). The Old Testament scriptures themselves testify that there is a plurality to God--

Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Isaiah 6:8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.

The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit can be seen in the Old Testament--

The Father:
Isaiah 64:8 But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.

The Son:

Psalms 2:7 I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

Proverbs 30:4 Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son's name, if thou canst tell?

The Holy Spirit:

Genesis 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

Psalms 51:11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.

Isaiah 63:10 But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them.

Isaiah 63:11 Then he remembered the days of old, Moses, and his people, saying, Where is he that brought them up out of the sea with the shepherd of his flock? where is he that put his holy Spirit within him?

All of the early church was Jewish. It was at the conversion of Cornelius (a Gentile) in the book of Acts that the Jews understood that our God is no respecter of persons and has opened the doors of eternal life to the Gentile as well.

The Bible teaches that all the prophets give witness of Jesus Christ (ref. Acts 10:43). The following Messianic prophesies were made hundreds, sometimes thousands, of years before the Lord Jesus Christ was born. Jesus Christ is the only person who has ever walked this earth that has fulfilled these prophesies. Looking for anyone else to fulfill these prophecies is an exercise in futility--a dangerous one because if you die in this deception, you will have no opportunity for recovery. Jesus Christ is the Messiah of Israel and he is the Son of David. His geneaology can be found in Matthew 1:1-17 and Luke chapter 3:23-38. [You can find an online Authorized Version of the Bible (as well as free Bible downloads and an overview of the Bible) here.]

Although many rabbis (see Matt 23:8) have strenuously tried for centuries to stop their own people from loving their Messiah, some Jewish people are still getting saved and safe. Unfortunately, many "Messianic" Jewish congregations have sprouted up teaching a confusing mixture of Judaism, dispensationalism, and the gospel. This is not good. In fact, it is horrible. Christ came to make Jew and Gentile one in his word. There is a great heresy that has gained much strength all over the world--that Jewish Christians and Gentile Christians are to remain forever separate. This heresy says that Israel is separate from the church. This is a very great heresy easily refuted by application of the scriptures.

I have long desired the opportunity to be able to worship with my Jewish brothers and sisters, the children of Abraham, in the truth. That lump is holy (Romans 11) . God has not cast away his people which he foreknew, they will be saved--but only under gospel terms. They will believe in their Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ, and will stop denying him.

A pack of false prophets has taught that Jewish people do not need to be converted to Jesus--as if the Jews or anybody else could make it into the kingdom of God without forgiveness and without the blood of Jesus. And not only that, but as if the Jews could actually deny the Holy One of Israel, their Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ, and make it into God's heaven. God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew (ref. Romans 11:2), but it must be understood that God's chosen people are those that believe the truth (ref. 2 Thessalonians 2:13). Ignore false prophets and teachers and set your eyes on the words of the scriptures. In Deuteronomy 18, Moses told Israel that God was going to raise up a Prophet from amongst them and that Israel was to listen to him. That Prophet is the Lord Jesus Christ. The Old Testament Messianic prophecies about Jesus Christ abound, but false prophets say that the Jews can be saved without hearkening to their own prophets. Do not listen to them. Listen to the scriptures. The Jewish people need the blood of Jesus just like us Gentiles. That great prophet and high priest of our profession, the Son of David and Messiah of Israel, the Lord Jesus Christ, said--

John 14:6 ...I am the way, the truth, and the life: NO MAN COMETH UNTO THE FATHER, BUT BY ME.

There is only one way to come to God and that is through his Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Jewish people need to be saved. They are not saved just because they are Jewish. One Jewish man told me that he should be okay before God because he was Jewish. In this instance, the words of John the Baptist came to mind--

Matthew 3:9 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.

Being Jewish is not enough.

*** JUDAISM ***

Rabbis today may claim that they are followers of Moses. But is this true? In the books of Moses, God required the blood of select beasts to atone for sin. Without blood, there is no atonement.

Leviticus 17:11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.

What have the rabbis been doing for the souls of the Jewish people for almost 2000 years? One thing is for sure--they have not been making atonement for their souls based on the law of Moses. The rabbis have not been shedding blood for the souls of their people (God would not have accepted it even if they had. Messiah is come and his blood is the only blood that God will accept.).

*** BLOOD IS REQUIRED ***

God's prescription for atonement was not good advice, prayers, Hebrew school, a following, and a kind look on your face. It was the blood of specific beasts, shed in a prescribed manner by specially selected persons (the Levitical priesthood) as outlined in the books of Moses. For almost 2000 years, this atonement has not occurred, nor should it. The Jewish temple in Jerusalem was destroyed in 70 AD--not long after the death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God who was sacrificed for the sins of the world that we might receive remission of our sins (And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. Hebrews 9:22). There was no more need for the temple. It has served its use.

With the destruction of the temple, there was an end of the sacrificial system of Moses. Israel was forced to stop shedding blood. Christ our passover is sacrificed for us (I Corinthians 5:8). His blood is our provision. It saves us from the wrath of God and purges our consciences that we may serve the Lord acceptably with godly reverence and fear. And it is by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony that we overcome the great dragon (that old serpent called the Devil and Satan) (ref. Revelation 12:11).

After the great work that our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ accomplished on the cross of Calvary, the blood of bulls and goats was no longer needed nor accepted by God. Now God only accepts the blood of Jesus that was shed on Calvary's cross. That is why the rabbis have no temple and no blood. God is pleased with the blood of Jesus and that is it. While the Lord Jesus Christ was on the earth, God the Father testified, "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." (Matthew 3:17; 17:5). That one time sacrifice that satisfied God and pleased him was accomplished. Now it was--and is--time for the people to believe on, worship and love and serve the Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Messiah, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the King of Israel.

The blood of bulls and of goats could never take away sins (Heb 10:11)--that inefficacy is why the Levitical priesthood had to keep on offering those beasts over and over again. When the Son of God, however, was offered, it was a one time act. Before he died, the Lord Jesus Christ said, "It is finished." Three days later he rose from the dead as it was not possible that he should be holden by death (ref. Acts 2:24). He arose and is now seated on the right hand of the throne of God and ever liveth to make intercession for his people.

God gave Israel the blood of Jesus. That is why the temple was destroyed in 70 AD never to rise up again. The Old Testament system of animal sacrifice was over. The slaying of those Old Testament beasts was a picture of the great work that the Lord Jesus Christ would accomplish on Calvary when he shed his blood for the sins of the world.

But what have the rabbis and elders been doing all these years? Instead of pointing the way to the Messiah, it seems that the rabbis have used all of their power to keep their own people from loving Jesus, the Lamb of God, the Son of David, the Messiah, who was slain for the sins of the world. They have zealously followed the same policy of hinderance that the Pharisees, Sadducees, Herodians, scribes, and lawyers followed--

Luke 11:52 Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.

*** A SEARCH FOR ATONING BLOOD ***

The tract entitled, A Search For Atoning Blood contains the account of a Jewish man who sought for the blood God that required--and he found it.

*** THE PRECIOUS CORNER STONE PROPHESIED ***

In the Old Testament, God rebuked the rulers of Jerusalem that led his people astray and he prophesied of that precious corner stone that was going to come to the earth. For those that do not know, that cornerstone is none other than our precious Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ--

Isaiah 28:14-19 Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem. Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves: Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste. Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place. And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it. From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report.

Today's rabbis offer no blood for the nation of Israel. Judaism is clearly not the religion of Moses, it is something else--it is essentially the tradition of the elders that the Lord Jesus Christ condemned (ref. Matt 15:3-9; Mark 7:5-13). Today, horrible made-up man-made tradition is found in written form in the blasphemous Talmud and Misnah. I do not advise anyone to read what these documents say about our precious Lord Jesus Christ even though we have at least one report about this on this website written by a Jewish brother, including portions of the Talmud. In speaking to the Jewish religious leaders, our Lord said this about the tradition of men--

Mark 7:6 ...Well hath Esaias [Isaiah] prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
Mark 7:7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
Mark 7:8 For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.
Mark 7:9 And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.
Mark 7:10 For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death:
Mark 7:11 But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall be free.
Mark 7:12 And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother;
Mark 7:13 Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.

The refusal of the Messiah by the Jewish leaders is a fulfillment of prophecy--

Psalms 118:22 The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.
Psalms 118:23 This is the LORD'S doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.

*** THE NEW COVENANT ***

In times past, God spoke unto the fathers by the prophets--like Moses--but in these last days he has spoken unto us by his Son.

Hebrews 1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,

Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

In Deuteronomy 18:15-16, Moses told Israel that God was going to raise up a Prophet from amongst their brethren that would be like himself a mediator between the people and God. The prophesy is then repeated from God's perspective in verses 17-19 accompanied by a warning--

Deuteronomy 18:17 And the LORD said unto me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken.

Deuteronomy 18:18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.

Deuteronomy 18:19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.

The Lord Jesus Christ did not come to destroy the law and the prophets, he came to fulfill what was written. He is that great Prophet.

Matthew 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

Matthew 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

The Lord Jesus Christ ushered in the new covenant spoken of by Jeremiah the prophet in Jeremiah 31:31-34--

Jeremiah 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a NEW covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:

Jeremiah 31:32 NOT according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:

Jeremiah 31:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Jeremiah 31:34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

If that first covenant with Moses had been faultless, then there would be no need for the new covenant that Jeremiah spoke of (ref. Heb 8:7). When God spoke of a new covenant, he made the first one old--

Hebrews 8:13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.

Jesus Christ is the mediator of that new, better, everlasting covenant established upon better promises.

Hebrews 12:24 ...Jesus the mediator of the new covenant...

Hebrews 8:6 ...he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.

Hebrews 13:20 ...our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant...

To enter into the new covenant, one must REPENT of their sins and BELIEVE that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again on the third day and obey God's word. Those that are not saved may wish to see our article entitled, "How to Get to Heaven."

As you examine the scriptures on this page, see what the Old Testament prophets prophesied concerning our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and see their fulfillment in the New Testament.

Isaiah 53 clearly reveals the Lord Jesus Christ as our sin bearer--

Isaiah 53:1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?

Isaiah 53:2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

Isaiah 53:3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

Isaiah 53:4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

Isaiah 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

Isaiah 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

Isaiah 53:7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

Isaiah 53:8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.

Isaiah 53:9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.

Isaiah 53:10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.

Isaiah 53:11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.

Isaiah 53:12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

*** CALL TO THE ISRAELITE ***

Our article "Call to the Israelite" is a call to remembrance.

*** "CHRISTIANITY": AN ARTIFICIAL DESIGNATION ***

When reading books written by Jewish authors, one can come across references to the evil deeds of what the authors refer to as "Christianity." [Note: There is no "Christianity." For saved people there is only a kingdom, the kingdom of God.] When looking at these books, it is fairly obvious that many writers are referring to the Roman Catholic "Church" when they speak of "Christianity." The Roman Catholic Church is not Christian, its precepts contradict the Bible repeatedly and it is full of heresies and blasphemies. The Roman Catholic institution has long been associated with persecuting people (Jew and Gentile) and having them murdered. Things to consider--

  • "From the beginning of the Papacy to the present time, it is estimated by reputable and trustworthy historians that tens of millions of people have been tortured and killed by Papal persecutors for the crime of believing God's word in the Bible, rather than the dogmas of the Roman Catholic Church. While the majority of those who suffered were true believers, Papal Rome also persecuted Jews, Muslims, Knights Templar, and those that she called 'witches.'" Quote taken from Systematic Murder of Believers The Untold History of the Inquisition By Richard Bennett.
  • The Inquisitions of the Roman Catholic institution were instigated by the popes of Rome themselves, e.g., the papal bull, "Ad_Extirpanda" by Pope Innocent IV laid down "the Laws and Regulations to be Followed by Magistrates and Secular Officials against Heretics and their Accomplices and Protectors."
  • During World War II, Croatia was carved out of Yugoslavia to be a Roman Catholic state. Ustasha murder squads (They are referred to as "Catholic Storm Troopers" in Avro Manhattan's The Vatican's Holocaust) killed over 700,000 Orthodox Serbs and about 60,000 Jewish people. There were even Roman Catholic priests donning the Ustasha uniform and massacring the people in the most horrifying, unbelievable manner. Nuns were helping out in various ways. According to one website, people are still trying to get their wealth back that was taken by the Ustasha--
    "The plaintiffs seek an accounting and recovery of the Ustasha Treasury that according to the US State Department was illicitly transferred to the Vatican, the Franciscan Order and other banks after the end of the war.

    "Defendants currently include the Vatican Bank and Francisan Order. These defendants combined to conceal assets looted by the Croatian Nazis from concentration camp victims, Serbs Jews, Roma and former Soviet citizens from Ukraine, Belarus, and Russia 1941-1945." (Excerpt taken fromthe article, Roman Catholic Terror in Croatia As She Pursues a "Convert or Die" Policy of Forcible Conversions.)


    There are Serbs even now trying to make the Ustasha massacres known. Many of us hear about the Holocaust in Germany but have never heard of the horrors of Croatia, Anton Pavelic and the role of Roman Catholic Archbishop Stepinac. Author Avro Manhattan wrote a book about it entitled, "The Vatican's Holocaust."
  • Also of note concerning World War II -- Pope Pius XII has been called "Hitler's Pope." And who has not heard of the Vatican "ratlines" whereby many Nazi criminals escaped justice?

The Christian church (which consists of saved people from every nation) does not have a visible organization, so no one visible church can truthfully say that they are "the" Christian church (The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. Luke 17:20-21, Authorized Version of the Bible) but every visible church can be tested by the Authorized Version of the Bible. Much of what is called "church" today is not--and even those that seem all right (if they can be found) often hold to some peculiar error. In this day of apostasy, each man needs to repent of his sins and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for himself and follow God's word. The reader may wish to see our article entitled, "How to Get to Heaven" and the opening letter on our index page.

*** MESSIANIC PROPHECIES FULFILLED BY THE LORD JESUS CHRIST ***

This webpage originally contained two lists of Messianic prophesies fulfilled by our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I copied the lists from other webpage(s), but after looking them over, I found them untrustworthy. I therefore have begun to compile a list of Messianic prophecies fulfilled by Jesus Christ by utilizing the Authorized Version of the Bible.


Prophesy
Old Testament
New Testament
Born of a virgin.Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. Matthew 1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

Matthew 1:19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily.

Matthew 1:20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

Matthew 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

Matthew 1:22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,

Matthew 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

Matthew 1:24 Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:

Matthew 1:25 And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.

Born in Bethlehem.Micah 5:2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting. Matthew 2:1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

Matthew 2:2 Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

Matthew 2:3 When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.

Matthew 2:4 And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.

Matthew 2:5 And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet,

Matthew 2:6 And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.

Rahel weeping for her dead children. Jeremiah 31:15 Thus saith the LORD; A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping; Rahel weeping for her children refused to be comforted for her children, because they were not. Matthew 2:13 And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.

Matthew 2:14 When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt:

Matthew 2:15 And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.

Matthew 2:16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men.

Matthew 2:17 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying,

Matthew 2:18 In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.

Called out of Egypt.Hosea 11:1 When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt.

Matthew 2:13 And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.

Matthew 2:14 When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt:

Matthew 2:15 And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.

The Son of David. Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

Ezekiel 34:23 And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd.

Ezekiel 34:24 And I the LORD will be their God, and my servant David a prince among them; I the LORD have spoken it.

Ezekiel 37:24 And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.
