Is Jesus the Messiah? You tell me!


I looked up some of the 300 prophesies that Jesus fulfilled, which prove He is the Messiah. But all the facts in the world won't cause a person to believe. It might lead you to faith and it might open up your heart to the possibility of faith, but faith is when you trust in Jesus fully and completely even when you don't have all the facts.

To me, examining fulfilled prophecy is similar to the "doubting Disciple" Thomas requested to see the nail-marked hands of Jesus before he would believe. Thomas needed to see for himself, and Jesus provides this opportunity for him in John 20:24-31.

Jesus provides that SAME opportunity for us through studying the Scriptures within the Word of God. I hope and pray that you will at least take a look at some of these verses in the Bible, search for yourself, and decide whether or not Jesus is the Son of the Living God.

I am praying that these fulfilled prophesies will cause you to fully trust in Jesus as the Messiah. May your heart cry out and cause you to say "I believe... I believe."
