Hello Friends,

The Holy Bible has prophecies of a coming Messiah that will reign forever. Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, fulfilled every one of the prophecies about His First Coming, and He will fulfill every one of the prophecies in His Second Coming. Here are 39 messianic prophecies fulfilled by Jesus, the Messiah. If each of these prophecies is given a 50/50 chance of occurring in one person’s life, the odds of fulfilling all 39 prophecies would be 1 in 549,755,813,900. This is incredible! There is not another god, person, or any other idol that has fulfilled one prophecy much less 39 prophecies. Jesus is the Messiah of the World! Hallelujah!
