Take the time to look up all of these passages in the TANAKH and see for yourself!
There is only one person in history that could possibly fulfill these and hundreds of other prophecies – that person is Yeshua the Messiah or Jesus Christ.
Do you believe in the laws given by God to Moses? The Ten Commandments?
Are you innocent or guilty if God judges you by His law? Have you ever prioritized anything above God in your life? Have you ever used God’s name in a vain manner? Have you ever disobeyed your parents, lied, cheated, or stolen? Have you ever coveted someone else’s possessions?
Yeshua the Messiah has the answer for your condemnation before God. He said that a person must be “born again” to be pardoned of sins and see the kingdom of God (John 3:7 in the New Testament of the Bible). This He said to a leader in the synagogue, Nicodemus. What did He mean by this? He goes on to say that to be “born again” means to receive new, spiritual life by the Holy Spirit of God (John 3:5-8). This entrance of the Holy Spirit fulfills the spiritual characteristics of the New Covenant spoken of by Jeremiah (Jeremiah 31:31-34). It is by the Holy Spirit indwelling presence that a person can have the law inside them, be pardoned from all sin, and know God personally. It is only when a person is born anew of the Spirit that they can be saved from the eternal consequences of sin in Hell (John 3:16-18). The New Covenant Jew is one who has repented of their sinful condition before God and received Yeshua as their personal Savior from sin (Romans 2:28, 29 in the New Testament of the Bible).
Final Question? Have you been born again?
