Old Testament Prophets With unfulfilled Prophecies

Old Testament Prophets With Unfulfilled Prophecies
Moses
Zechariah
Isaiah
Zephaniah
Ezekiel
Habakkuk
Jeremiah
Psalms
Daniel


Moses:

Re-gathering Of Israel:

Then the Lord your God will give you back your freedom. He will feel sorry for you, and he will bring you back again from the nations where he scattered you. He may send you to the ends of the earth, but he will gather you and bring you back from there, back to the land that belonged to your ancestors. It will be yours. He will give you success, and there will be more of you than there were of your ancestors (Deut. 30:3-5).

Since this prophecy in Deut. 30:3-5 has never been fulfilled, this must relate to the Messianic Redemption. Therefore, to deny the coming of the Messiah and the redemption He will bring is deny the Torah itself.(1)

Although God seems to be in the process of re-gathering Israel the land they are coming to is being currently given away by the Israeli government, and does not yet reflect their promised expanded borders from the current shrinking State of Israel.

Future Cities Of Refuge To Be Added:

This is why I command you to choose these three cities.Carefully obey all these laws I’m giving you today. Love the Lord your God, and always do what he wants you to do. Then the Lord your God will enlarge your land as he promised your ancestors, giving you the whole land he promised to them. After that, choose three more cities of safety so that innocent people will not be killed in your land, the land that the Lord your God is giving you as your own. By doing this you will not be guilty of allowing the death of innocent people (Deut. 19:7-10).

Neither the final borders of Israel nor these three cities of refuges have been created yet. Six was not the final and absolute number for cities of refuge. Maimonides writes that in the future it will be necessary to add another three cities of refuge (Hilkhot Rotze’ah u-Shmirat ha-Nefesh, 8.4):

In the days of the Messiah another three cities will be added to these six, for it is written, “then you shall add three more towns to those three” (Deut. 19:9). Where are these cities to be added? In the towns of the Kenites, the Kenizites and the Kadmonites, who were included in the covenant with Abraham but had not yet been conquered; of them it says in the Torah, “And when the Lord your G-d enlarges your territory.” (2)

Some other prophecies that are of interest in the area of unfulfilled prophecy concerning Moses include Genesis 49:10 and Numbers 24:17.


Isaiah:

And He will judge between the nations, And will render decisions for many peoples; And they will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, And never again will they learn war (Isaiah 2:4).

This prophecy will not come to full fulfillment until the Messiah returns and sets up His Millennial Kingdom in Jerusalem.

“No longer will you have the sun for light by day, Nor for brightness will the moon give you light; But you will have the Lord for an everlasting light, And your God for your glory. “Your sun will no longer set, Nor will your moon wane; For you will have the Lord for an everlasting light, And the days of your mourning will be over (Isaiah 60:19-20).

In this prophecy Isaiah provides a glimpse of a New Jerusalem to come after the Millennial Kingdom. No more sun and moon and no more tears.

Ezekiel:

Vision of the Valley of Dry Bones (Ezekiel Chapter 37 Prophecy).

Prophecy about Gog and Future Invasion of Israel (Ezekiel Chapter 38). Learn more about this future Coalition Against Israel.


Jeremiah:

“Behold, days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah, not like the covenant which I made with their fathers in the day I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, although I was a husband to them,” declares the Lord. “But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days,” declares the Lord, “I will put My law within them and on their heart I will write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. “They will not teach again, each man his neighbor and each man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they will all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them,” declares the Lord, “for I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more” (Jeremiah 31:31-340).

Followers of Jesus as Messiah (Christians and Messianic Jews) believe that this New Covenant has been instituted on an individual basis meaning those who believe in Jesus are included in this covenant now. This prophecy remains unfulfilled for Israel on a national level until Messiah returns and sets up His earthly kingdom. This prophecy is in a state of partial fulfillment.

King of Kings 3“Behold, the days are coming,” declares the Lord, “When I will raise up for David a righteous Branch; And He will reign as king and act wisely And do justice and righteousness in the land (Jeremiah 23:5).

This prophecy concerns the Earthly reign of our Messiah during the Millennial Kingdom. Christian's already recognize Jesus as their King and the King of all Kings.


Daniel:

Daniel, writes about the Tribulation Period, also known as Daniel's 70th week found in Daniel 9:24-27 and the Time of Jacob's Trouble. This is the same period of time that Zechariah speaks about in Israels coming Holocaust (see next entry) and the Book of Revelation describes.

“Now at that time Michael, the great prince who stands guard over the sons of your people, will arise. And there will be a time of distresssuch as never occurred since there was a nation until that time; and at that time your people, everyone who is found written in the book, will be rescued (Daniel 12:1).


Zechariah:

Israels Coming Holocaust: Two out of every Three Jews in Israel may die during the time of Jacob's Trouble.

Zechariah prophesied about it in Zech.13:8-9. Here, he predicts that up to two thirds of Jews could loose their lives. God, through His grace, does keep one third alive as the living remnant to be saved.

“It will come about in all the land,” Declares the Lord, “That two parts in it will be cut off and perish; But the third will be left in it. “And I will bring the third part through the fire, Refine them as silver is refined, And test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, And I will answer them; I will say, ‘They are My people,’ And they will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’ ” (Zechariah 13:8-9).

Also see Zechariah's unfulfilled prophecies concerning:


Zephaniah:

Serving the Lord in Unity:

For then I will give to the peoples purified lips, That all of them may call on the name of the Lord, To serve Him shoulder to shoulder (Zephaniah 3:9).

Someday, all the world will serve God in unity. Probably with Messiahs direction.


Habakkuk:

For the earth will be filled With the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, As the waters cover the sea (Habakkuk 2:14).


Psalms:

Before the Lord, for He is coming to judge the earth; He will judge the world with righteousness And the peoples with equity (Psalm 98:9).

This part of the Psalm deals with an end time judgment.


Miscellaneous:

The fulfillment of a prophets prophecy is not conditional on being fulfilled why the prophet is still alive. This test is applicable only when the alleged revelation has reference to the near future.(2) But even where the prophecy concerns the immediate future this test is not always applicable. It is conclusive only when a prediction of prosperity fails, because then it is seen that the alleged revelation did not emanate from the All-Merciful (comp. Jer. xxviii. 9); but the failure of a prediction of disaster is not conclusive, the fulfilment of such predictions being always conditioned by the conduct of the people (Jer. xviii. 7, 8; xxvi. 19; Ezek. xviii. 21, xxxiii. 11; comp. Yer. Sanh. xi. 30b).(3)
