God gave us His Word by using several different Biblical Prophets. He gave us a progressive form of revelation. Some prophets God gave new information to and other Prophets reconfirmed what was already revealed, sometimes offering a greater depth of understanding through a more specific revelation. By looking at the Bible as one message from the Father given to us over an extended period of time, we can see the consistency of His Word, of His promise and of His plan.
Moses taught that someday God would send a Prophet greater than he was (Deut 18:18).
Daniel taught us when this person would come (Dan. 9:24-27).
Micah taught us where this prophet would be born (Micah 5:2).
Isaiah taught that this prophet would be born from a virgin (Isaiah 7:14).
Isaiah taught that this person (our redeemer) would be both God and King (Isaiah 9:6).
Zechariah taught that the first appearance of Israel's king would be humble, coming on a donkey (Zechariah 9.9).
Isaiah taught that this person would take the penalty for our transgressions and through his death we could be healed (Isaiah 53).
King David taught that this redeemer would be put to death through crucifixion (Psalm 22).
King David also taught that after the death of this anointed one he would be resurrected (Psalm 16:10-11).
Zechariah revealed that when the King (the Lord Himself) comes back for the second time, He will fight to protect Israel (Zechariah 14:1-4).
Jeremiah taught us that even though God gave us the Mosaic Covenant, someday there would be a New Covenant (Jer. 31:31). This covenant is partially fulfilled now by individuals who have faith in it. These are people who recognize that God has already implemented a new substitutional sacrificial system for their sins. They have faith that God sent His Son Jesus Christ to be their redeemer through whom eternal life (being saved) is obtained. This new covenant will be complete in fulfillment when the Returning Messiah rules as King of all Kings for all the word, which will usher in the Millennial Kingdom providing us with a true peace.
When Jer. 31:31 becomes totally fulfilled Israel will realize this New Covenants full application and fulfillment. It's high priest will be the Messiah Himself, not a descendant of Aaron (Psalm 110:4 and Hebrews 7).(1)
God's promises are also considered prophecies. For more information on this please check out JewishRoots.Net Messiah In Prophecy area.
