We often focus on the Prophecies which have not yet happened, like the Psalm 83 war, or the Isaiah 17, destruction of Damascus, or The Gog Magog war of Ezekiel 38 & 39.  This morning ai want to give us a list of the prophecies fulfilled by Jesus.  Our book, the Bible, differs from any other book on the planet as it has a thread of prophecy from Genesis to Revelation.   As Chuck Missler says,  66 books by 40 authors and yet we see it is an integrated message system! 

Prophecy is for our benefit and it demonstrates that there is a God outside space/time as we know it who calls out, with great specificity, the end from the beginning and the beginning from the end!

This just amazes me…. There is nothing else like on it this planet!

  1. Pingback: From L.A. Marzulli: 44 Prophecies Jesus Fulfilledun! | Watching the Watchers

  2. What is Prophesy?

    God’s will…
    — conveyed by His Word
    — rightly heard
    — sent to others
    — can be a command
    — can be by vision
    — usually involves consequences
    — may be conditional

    Examples of true and false prophecy:

    Jeremiah 14

    1 The word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah
    concerning the dearth.

    10 Thus saith the LORD unto this people,
    Thus have they loved to wander, they have not refrained their feet,
    therefore the LORD doth not accept them;
    he will now remember their iniquity, and visit their sins.

    11 Then said the LORD unto me, Pray not for this people for their good.

    12 When they fast,
    I will not hear their cry; and when they offer burnt offering and an oblation,
    I will not accept them: but
    I will consume them by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence.

    13 Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, the prophets say unto them,
    Ye shall not see the sword,
    neither shall ye have famine; but
    I will give you assured peace in this place.

    14 Then the LORD said unto me,

    The prophets
    — prophesy lies in my name:
    — I sent them not,
    — neither have I commanded them,
    — neither spake unto them:

    — they prophesy unto you a false vision
    — and divination,
    — and a thing of nought,
    — and the deceit of their heart.

    15 Therefore thus saith the LORD
    concerning the prophets that prophesy in my name, and I sent them not,

    yet they say, Sword and famine shall not be in this land;
    By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed.

    16 And the people to whom they prophesy
    shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword;
    and they shall have none to bury them,
    them, their wives, nor their sons, nor their daughters:
    for I will pour their wickedness upon them.

    17 Therefore thou shalt say this word unto them;
    Let mine eyes run down with tears night and day, and let them not cease:
    for the virgin daughter of my people is broken with a great breach,
    with a very grievous blow.

    18 If I go forth into the field, then behold the slain with the sword! and
    if I enter into the city, then behold them that are sick with famine!
    yea, both the prophet and the priest go about into a land that they know not.

  3. Amazing detailed prophecies!!!

    a1 b2 c3… if anyone says Jesus is not the ‘son of God’ tell them ‘son’ = 48 + ‘God’ = 26 = 74 Jesus 74 and if they say something like Jesus is not the ‘Messiah’ well that = 74 too!!! 7 n 4 are significant being the first n last numbers of GOD…G7 O15 D4…

    Reverence Mr. Marzulli

  4. Rep. Michele Bachmann Says Obama’s Support Of Terror Groups Is Proof We Are Living In The Biblical End Times

    Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) believes that we’re living in the End Times — and she claims to have proof. In an interview Saturday with Jan Markell on the Christian radio program “Understanding the Times,” Bachmann accused President Barack Obama of giving aid to terrorists. This, she says, is solid evidence that we have entered the Last Days. “President Obama waived a ban on arming terrorists in order to allow weapons to go to the Syrian opposition,” Bachmann said. “Your listeners, U.S. taxpayers, are now paying to give arms to terrorists including al Qaeda. This happened, and as of today, the United States is willingly, knowingly, intentionally sending arms to terrorists, now what this says to me, I’m a believer in Jesus Christ, as I look at the End Times scripture, this says to me that the leaf is on the fig tree and we are to understand the signs of the times, which is your ministry, we are to understand where we are in God’s end time history.”

  5. Thank you L.A. for reminding us what a mighty God we serve. He does in fact know the end from the beginning. Jesus fulfilled every single Old Testament prophecy down to the last detail. And He did it all for us. Praise Jesus! Jesus Is Lord!!

  6. Luke 17, Jesus said…

    26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.

    28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. 30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. 31 In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back. 32 Remember Lot’s wife. 33 Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.

    34 I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. 35 Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 36 Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 37 And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together.

    Judge yourself that you be not judged…

  7. Thanks for that wonderful list, LA.

    Along the lines of prophecy, I wonder if I could solicit some help from folks. I am greatly interested in prophecy, but not quite as knowledgeable as LA and other folks who regularly comment on this blog, and I have some questions I hope someone could answer for me.

    I am currently taking a History of World Civilization course in college, and I’ve recently had to read sections of the Bible as part of the course–however, the sections are “explained” by a secular scholar who, of course, casts doubt on the inerrancy and inspiration of the Scriptures. I had to read part of Daniel 11 & 12, in which Daniel describes the end of the age, as well as the passage in Matthew 24, where Jesus talks about the signs of the end of the age and refers back to Daniel. Now, according to this secular “authority,” Daniel could not have possibly been the actual writer of Daniel 11 & 12, because–and I quote– “the author of the book knows considerably more about the period toward the end of his prophecy (180-165 B.C.E.) than about the third to sixth century B.C.E. [when Daniel actually lived]. This discrepancy and the use of second-century Hebrew and Aramaic have led biblical scholars to conclude that the book of Daniel is prophecy after the fact…”

    This secular writer uses similar reasoning to say that Matthew “updated” the passage in Matthew 24 after 70 A.D., when the temple was destroyed, because he thought the destruction of the temple was the “abomination of desolation” referred to by Jesus and Daniel.

    I’m just wondering how to respond to these assertions, should I be called upon to do so for this class. I of course believe the Bible, not some secular writer, but I’m not knowledgeable enough about Biblical prophecy and Biblical textual criticism to argue against what is being presented to me. Could anyone help me out with this? Or direct me to a helpful resource? How can I know, without arguing from faith only, that Daniel indeed wrote all of the book credited to him? Or when Matthew wrote his gospel?

    • Wow… I used to know this information but I never really kept it in my mind and I just forgot what I had learned about this argument by these “scholars”. I can tell you that the view of these “scholars” is easily disproven. I know I have the info somewhere in one of my books, just can’t remember where it is at the moment. I would google it somewhere on the internet. Sorry I can’t help you at the moment but I thought I would throw you a little nugget to say that the info you are looking for to disprove these “scholars” does indeed exist and is easily disproven.

    • Thanks, Corey. Maybe I will google it to see what I can find. I just thought I’d ask here first, since so many people on here are so knowledgeable about Biblical prophecy.

      @ Mnm–could you elaborate?

    • Just for some proof as to when carbon dating says rhey where written,iv only done a little research in the area,but i think they are the oldest scrolls found dating back to at least 1st b.c

    • It’s definitely worth asking the question about the dating of Daniel to Mike Heiser.

      “http://www.michaelsheiser.com/”

      From his thesis… p. 271

      THE DIVINE COUNCIL IN LATE CANONICAL ANDNON-CANONICAL SECOND TEMPLE JEWISH LITERATURE
      “http://digitalcommons.liberty.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1092&context=fac_dis”

      quote:
      The reader should be aware that this dissertation assumes certain critical presuppositions about the books of Isaiah and Daniel of which the author is not necessarily persuaded. Multiple authorship of Isaiah is assumed, but I am not persuaded that redaction does not better explain the phenomena of the text of Isaiah (as opposed to the combination of completely separate “books” of Isaiah). A late date (2nd century B.C.) for Daniel is also assume d, but I do not necessarily think that this view is completely coherent. The late date is helpful for the arguments herein, but is not essential. An earlier date (6th century B.C.) works as
      well, since that, too, is chronologically subsequent to the earliest secure dating of the received texts of the Torah, the Deuteronomistic History, and most of the prophetic books.

      Other approaches…

      “http://www.biblearchaeology.org/post/2012/07/31/new-light-on-the-book-of-daniel-from-the-dead-sea-scrolls.aspx”

      search in the document: “Date of the Daniel Dead Sea Scrolls and Its Significance”

      At this juncture we need to make another point. According to current historical-critical opinion, the book of Daniel originated in its present form in the Antiochus Epiphanes crisis, that is, between 168/167–165/164 BC. It seems very difficult to perceive that one single desert community should have preserved such a significant number of Daniel manuscripts if this book had really been produced at so late a date. The large number of manuscripts in this community can be much better explained if one accepts an earlier origin of Daniel than the one proposed by the Maccabean hypothesis of historical-critical scholarship, which dates it to the second century BC.

      Heiser will likely know the state of current scholarly debate.

    • Apologetics press Dead sea scrolls Is an interesting sight on That and touches base on what Ur writing about might help

    • Thanks Mnm. I actually came across the Apologetics Press website in my search online, and it provided excellent information on the topic. Also came across a very thorough article by a J. P. Holding that provided great evidence and arguments against a later dating of Daniel.

      I’ll check out the website you referred to, Nomemoleste. Thanks.

    • Princesinha,

      Have a look at the following video below it is addressing the very same subject.
      Daniel, Part 1 – Validity of the Book
      Sep 15, 2013

      “http://www.lamblion.com/television/programs.php”

      The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
      Psalm 12:6

  8. Have you ever wondered what it must have been like for His disciples? Can we even imagine what it felt like for Jesus’ disciples when they realized that important prophetic scriptures were being fulfilled right before their very eyes and that they actually played a part in fulfilling some of them ? We think it’s cool that we’re able to witness Israel back in their own land, but imagine actually fulfilling Zec 9:9 yourself ! Imagine being the one called on, from the Master Himself no less, the Christ, the Messiah, to actually bring Him the donkey he sat on ? It must have been very, very cool when their eyes were finally opened and they realized all that had happened and how they played a part in it. Jesus was extremely conscious when each and every scripture was being fulfilled, He would say things like “today is this scripture fulfilled in your ears” Luke 4:21 or Math 26:54 “But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?”

    I bet reading the Bible became so exciting for those disciples afterwards. Not boring like the Pharisees always made everything about God seem, but now they realized that knowing the true God and His living word is exciting and real, life giving – and fun!

    Because of Jesus we’re also very in tune and super sensitive to the scriptures. Because of His Gift, each one of us have the privilege of having our own private tutor to explain it all to us from the inside, an incredibly wise Being lives within us, always ready to open up/explain the scriptures to us. Isn’t God good? There is absolutely no one as kind and patient as He is! He Wants us to understand all these things and the major role the scriptures play in bringing forth His incredible plan and they reveal to us the part we all play in it all too, just like His disciples, we’re all part of it as well ! Reading the Bible is like an exciting treasure hunt as we search for precious nuggets to uncover. Did you know, we will still be reading and studying our bibles in the millennium ? since there will still be many things yet to be fulfilled even after Jesus comes back! So kiss your Bible and give it a hug, it’s going to be with you a long, long time!

    (John 12:14) And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written,
    15 Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass’s colt.
    16 These things understood not his disciples at the first: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things unto him.

    Luke 24:27 “And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.”

  10. You want MORE PROPHECIES coming to pass???……..then WATCH THIS SHORT VIDEO. WE ARE THERE.

    The Terrifying Future of The United States

  11. Good evening LA,
    The prophecies you presented today were wonderful. Everyone can review and understand the bible as a very spiritual and prophetic book of God’s words. What’s so amazing to me is Jesus in the new testament stating repeatedly how the scriptures much be fulfilled. As Christians we believe and try our best to understand, sometimes we succeed and sometimes we fail. In only 6 years I have come from believing in Christ to what I would say as living with Christ. I find it interesting my thoughts this week seemed to think back on the old testament and how the scripture came to life in the new testament. My daily reading moves me through each book and verse from binder to binder than beginning over again.
    The politics we all live in day to day are trivial, I know in my heart keeping faith in Christ is my escape. I pray we all believe or try our best to believe as Christ did when he was on earth, faith will prevail.
    I watched “America Unearthed-Giants in Minnesota” on the History channel this week and was amazed. The gentleman who was attempting to prove Vikings had been in Minnesota hundreds of years ago met a farmer who had unearthed “Giant” human bones on his property. The farmer explained how a man with tuning rods had found an area with something interesting, after digging is when they discovered the large bones. The same man returned and found another area of interest. The gentleman from the history channel brought in someone in the event bones were discovered but he refused to dig at the location the man with the tuning rods had found. He used an electronic device and found other areas. The farmer refused to back down on his statements of large bones and the History channel then followed up with the historical society of Minnesota in regard to the giant bones. They simply stated how the farmer and the scientist had measured the bones incorrectly. The end of the show had the History channel back with the farmer again, he was frustrated but refused to change his statement. LA, this is exactly how you have explained it also.
    God bless

  12. Ray Comfort posted this the other day. Thought it was pretty insightful:

    “And when they had appointed him a day, there came many to him into his lodging; to whom he expounded and testified the kingdom of God, persuading them concerning Jesus, both out of the law of Moses, and out of the prophets, from morning till evening” (Acts 28:23).

    Notice that Paul used both prophecy and the Law of Moses in his evangelism. Prophecy appeals to a man’s intellect and creates faith in the Word of God. As he realizes that the Bible is no ordinary book—that it contains numerous indisputable prophecies that prove its supernatural origin—he begins to give Scripture credibility. However, the Law of Moses appeals to a man’s conscience and brings conviction of sin. A “decision” for Jesus purely in the realm of the intellect— with no biblical knowledge of sin, which comes only by the Law (Romans 7:7)—will almost certainly produce a false convert.

  13. The Holy Spirit showed me something this morning and I thought it was important enough to share it. This is what I saw: I saw planet earth like a globe suspended in space and then I saw a close up of it, and it seemed as if it was covered with something that was living and moving. Now this might gross you out but the only way I can describe it, its as if it was covered with little, moving, wormy things and they were all the same, there was no distinction, just this huge mass of wormy things covering planet earth. Then from time to time, I saw some of these “wormy things” release, let go, turn into butterflies and fly toward heaven, each one was unique. Some looked like very pretty butterflies, but I saw nothing particulary distinguishing about them, but then I watched one unfolding, it was the same yet different, it was a glorious butterfly with big sweeping majestic wings, is the only way to describe it and I knew there were others like this one, but that they were rare. There was something different and set apart about it, worthy of more honor, it seemed. When it was still a little wormy thing, it just blended in with all the others. And I thought to myself, we will not all have the same glory when we are resurrected.
    Afterwards the Lord gave me this scripture.

    (1 Cor 15:35-49) But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come?
    36 Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:37 And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain:
    38 But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body.
    39 All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.
    40 There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.
    41 There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.
    42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:
    43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:
    44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
    45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
    46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
    47 The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from heaven.
    48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
    49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

    Holy Spirit then builded upon that scripture with this one in Hebrews, where He reminded me that the old saints who lived for God and understood these things, endured terrible suffering so they could obtain a better resurrection. He had taught me this before, so I remembered this scripture.

    (Heb 11:35)”…and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection”

    Some of those old saints were mercilessly tortured. Through faith/prayer they knew God would deliver them if they asked Him to ( just like Jesus knew that all He had to do was to ask, and His Father would have immediately sent legions of angels to delivered Him, but He chose not to – Mathew 26:53 ) in the same way they chose not to accept release from their sufferings, why? because they had their eyes fixed on their reward. They chose to obtain a better resurrection through suffering. I’m not saying suffering is the only way to obtain a better resurrection, (it’s only one way) but Jesus said we’re to be exceedingly glad when we suffer for Him. Why would He say that? Because its fun to suffer for Him? No, then why should we be glad? its because He’s speaking from knowledge of what He’s seen and knows, He’s speaking from a heavenly perspective, He’s familiar with the recompense of the reward. Our reward will be greater if we suffer for Him. He’s trying to tell us that! So don’t automatically think suffering for righteousness is a bad thing.

    This life is really quick and temporary. People talk about suffering for Jesus as if it’s a bad thing, but in the TRUE REALITY they are blessed because their reward will be greater than others. They’ll receive that reward – LATER. Later is what we’re living for, not now. Jesus is coming back and His rewards are with Him to render to every man according to his works.
    (Rev 22:12) According to what we actually DO for Him. When we, with patience, do the hard things He asks of us it proves to everyone that we love Him, even more than our own lives. There’s a reward for that, compared to others who ignore His word and His Spirit within them.
    Our hearts and all of our affections should never be tangled up in this life, we are preparing ourselves now for our future home. Right now, we are all in the “incubation stage” that’s what I saw this morning, ( the little wormy things ) Today what we’re doing, is we’re building for the next life. We’re all the same right now, but not later, we won’t all be the same, that’s why we shouldn’t be wasting our time in this life and lose focus and get bogged down with worry or even pleasure, because if we do that we’ll lose what we could have had later on, things Christ put within our power to achieve. When its all said and done, when we realize what our Christian life was really all about, and what we could have done with our time/life and what we actually did, I’m afraid many of us will have regrets.
    Jesus understood it all perfectly, the connection of suffering in this life and the glory to follow….
    Luke24:26 “Ought not Christ to have SUFFERed these things, and to enter into his GLORY?” SUFFERING and GLORY!
    So let’s try to live each day with eternity in mind. I know that I’m going to try really hard to change my focus away from earthly things to heavenly things from now on!

    • yep indeed… I heard a message by someone along time ago and I only remembered one phrase from it and it has stuck with we like glue… “Our suffering down here on earth are opportunities that the Lord has given to us for our reward up there”. It’s not pleasant to go through it in the here and now, but then it will have been worth it…. Trust me, I know all about that part of it. Sometimes I wish there were another way of getting those rewards to us, but I’m not in charge.

    Former senior Israeli intelligence official tells The Jerusalem Post Israel believes Saudi Arabia will follow Iran’s footsteps in acquiring nuclear weapons, which will lead to a nuclear arms race in the region. … Saudi Arabia would not wait “a minute” after Iran acquires a nuclear weapon to build or buy one themselves … “The Saudis have the missile technology already,” he said. “I’d be surprised if they don’t just take warheads from the Pakistanis. They’ve already paid for them.” @Jerusalem Post

      quote: “The virus has symptoms including pneumonia, fever, shortness of breath, cough and gastrointestinal issues…..

      There is still no vaccine available, however, the combination of drugs might be used to lengthen the life spans and lessen overall health damage in extreme cases of the virus.”
