"And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name".
This article is the 1st of a 5-part Series containing 8 of a list of 37 Messainic prophecies that have been already fulfilled concerning Our "Messiah" Christ Jesus. Each "fulfilled" prophecy is listed in the order in which they actually occurred in history. They concern the "first coming" of Jesus Christ, the "Lamb of God" that came to take away the "SIN" of the world. These prophecies concern His birth, ministry, death, burial, resurrection, and ascension. All "unfulfilled" prophecies concerning Jesus concern His "Second Coming".
At present, Jesus occupies the office of our Great High Priest, sitting at the "right hand" of God, interceding in our behalf until it's time He take off His "Robe of the Priesthood" and put's on the "Robe of Judgment" and return to earth and set up His Messianic Kingdom for 1000 years.
