Prophetic Messianic SCRIPTURE
from the Greek SEPTUAGINT
The Septuagint is traditionally a 200 BC Greek version LXX of the Old Testament Masoretic Hebrew text and often varies significantly from the Hebrew text. Subsequent translations are often different in meaning or emphasis due to context. The main issue is when Hebrew/Aramaic Old Testament scripture is quoted/repeated in the New Testament. Fulfillment of prophecy is of particular importance, when this happens. Most of the following scripture reveals that the prophesied Jewish Messiah is Jesus Christ. Many of the following comparisons are in TEV - Today's English Version.
Matthew 1:23/Isaiah 7:14
A virgin will become pregnant and have a son.
Matthew 1:22-23 NIV - All this took place to fulfill what the Lord (God) had said through the prophet,
"The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son. They will call Him Immanuel, which means, "God is with us."
Matthew 3:3/Mark 1:3/Luke 3:4-6/John 1:23/Isaiah 40:3 - Someone is shouting in the desert, "Prepare a road for the Lord; make a straight path for our God to travel."
Matthew 3:1-3 NIV - John the Baptist came, preaching in the desert of Judea and saying, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near." - This is he who was spoken of through the prophet Isaiah, "A voice of one calling in the desert, 'Prepare the way for the Lord; make straight paths for Him.'"
Matthew 12:3-8 NIV - He (Jesus) answered, "Haven't you read what David did when he and his companions ere hungry? He entered the house of God, and he and his companions ate the consecrated bread, which was not lawful for them to do, but only for the priests. Or haven't you read in the Law that on the Sabbath the priests in the temple desecrate the day and yet are innocent? I tell you that one greater than the temple is here.
If you had known what these words mean, 'I desire mercy, not sacrifice,' you would not have condemned the innocent, for the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath."
Matthew 12:21/Isaiah 42:4 - On Him all people will put their trust.
Matthew 12:15-21 NIV - Jesus withdrew from that place. Many followed Him, and He healed all their sick, warning them not to tell who He was. This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah, "Here is My servant Whom I have chosen, the One I love, in whom I delight; I will put My Spirit on Him, and He will proclaim justice to the nations. He will not quarrel or cry out; no one will hear His voice in the streets. A bruised reed He will not break, and a smoldering wick He will not snuff out, till He leads justice to victory. In His Name the nations will put their hope."
Matthew 13:14-15/Mark 4:12/Luke 8:10/John 12:40/Acts 28:26-27/Isaiah 6:9-10 - "This people will listen and listen, but not understand; they will look and look, but not see, because their minds are dull. They have stopped up their ears, and have closed their eyes. Otherwise, their eyes would see, their ears would hear, their minds would understand, and they would turn to Me, says God, and I would heal them."
Matthew 13:11,14-15 NIV - He (Jesus) replied...""In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah, 'You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving. For this people's heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and turn, and I would heal them.'"
Matthew 15:8-9/Mark 7:6-7/Isaiah 29:13 - "These people," says God,..."honor Me with their words, but their heart is rally far away from Me. It is no use for them to worship Me, because they teach man-made rules and laws."
Matthew 15:3,7-9 NIV - Jesus replied, "You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you.
'These people honor Me (God) with their lips, but their hearts are far from Me. They worship Me in vain;
their teachings are but rules taught by men.'"
Matthew 21:16/Psalm 8:2 - You (God) have trained children and babies to offer perfect praise.
Matthew 21:16 NIV - Jesus replied, "Have you never read, 'From the lips of children and infants You have ordained praise.'"
Luke 4:4 NIV
answered, "It is written, 'Man does not live on
Luke 4:8 NIV - Jesus answered, "It is written, 'Worship the Lord your God and serve Him only.'"
Luke 4:18/Isaiah 61:1
The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has chosen Me to bring good news
to the poor. He has sent Me...to proclaim liberty to the captives and
recovery of sight to the blind.
Luke 4:16-21 NIV - He went to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. On the Sabbath day He went into the synagogue, as was His custom. He stood up to read. The scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to Him. Unrolling it,
He found the place where it is written, "The Spirit of the Lord is on Me, because He has anointed Me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor." The He rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant and sat down. The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fastened on Him. He began by saying to them, "Today this scripture is fulfilled in you hearing."
John 12:38/Isaiah 5:10
- Lord, who
believed the message we told?
John 12:37-40 NIV - Even after Jesus had done all these miraculous signs in their presence, they still would not believe in Him. This was to fulfill the word of Isaiah the prophet, "Lord, who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?" For this reason they could not believe, because as Isaiah says elsewhere, "He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts, so they can neither see with their eyes, nor understand with their hearts, nor turn- and (so) I would heal them.
Acts 2:19-20/Joel 2:30-31
- There will
be blood, fire, and thick smoke.
The sun will be darkened and the moon will turn red as blood, before the great and glorious day of the Lord comes.
Acts 2:25-38/Psalm 16:8-11 - I saw the Lord before me at all times. He is near me. I will not be troubled, so I am filled with gladness, and My words are full of joy. I, mortal though I am, will rest assured in hope, because You will not abandon Me in the world of the dead. You will not allow Your faithful Servant to rot in the grave. You have shown Me the paths that lead to life. Your presence will fill Me with joy.
Acts 2:14,16-36 NIV - Peter stood up with the 11, raised his voice and addressed the crowd... This is what was spoken by the prophet Joel, "In the last days, God says, 'I will pour out My Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your young men will see visions. Your old men will dream dreams. Even on My servants, both men and women, I will pour out My Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. I will show wonders in the heaven above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord. Everyone who called on the name of the Lord will be saved.'"
Men of Israel, listen to this. Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through Him, as you yourselves know. This man was handed over to you by God's set purpose and foreknowledge. You with the help of wicked men put Him to death by nailing Him to the cross. But God raised Him from the dead, freeing Him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on Him.
David said (prophesied) about Him, "I saw the Lord always before Me. Because He is at My right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore My heart is glad and My tongue rejoices. My body also will live in hope, because You will not abandon Me to the grave, nor will You let Your Holy One see decay. You have made known to Me the paths of life. You will fill me with joy in Your presence."
Brothers, I can tell you confidently that the patriarch David died and was buried, and his tomb is here to this day, but he was a prophet and knew that God had promised him on oath that he would place one of his descendants on his throne. Seeing what was ahead, he spoke of the resurrection of the Christ, that He was not abandoned to the grave, nor did His body see decay. God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of the fact. Exalted to the right hand of God, He has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and her. David did not ascend to heaven. Yet he said, "The Lord said to MY Lord, 'Sit at My right hand until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet'" Therefore let all Israel be assured of this (that) God has made this Jesus, Whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.

Psalms 3:9 NIV - "You will rule them with an iron scepter."
One will note that Jesus Christ is the
fulfillment of the Old Testament prophecy regarding a Jewish Messiah; but many
Jews have not seen the Messiah manifested in their lives in their generation.
They have not been told. The veil has not been removed. They have
not believed. They have not received. The same applies to healing.
Unless one has read or been told that Jesus Christ both saves and heals, he will
not likely experience a miracle, even though he wants one...
A manifestation of Jesus in our life is like a marriage. We can date someone, but until we have consummated the marriage in the intimacy of the wedding chamber, we do not really "know" that person. Even that is just the beginning, for marriage is a walk, a relationship. So when we are pouting and quite depressed, because God is taking such a long time to answer our prayer, remember that we are already saved. We are already healed - 2000 years ago. Let us not miss our miracle by our constant asking. We have our miracle. Stand up and proclaim it - to ourselves and to our enemy, the Devil who wants us just where we are - like an ostrich with our head in the hole in the ground. Do not be double minded. Do not faint. Do not quit. Thank Him for what He already did on the cross 2000 years ago. Thank Him in advance of the evidence you are seeking - every second, every minute, every hour, every day, every month, and every year. Praise Him until He reveals Himself to you, in this generation...
The angel Gabriel's announcement to Mary of the forthcoming conception in her of the Messiah is equivalent to God's announcement to us via Scripture (or any other means). Mary's acceptance of that message is equivalent to our acceptance. It is only one's belief in God's message, that enables God to place His Son into our life, into our body.
That Life needs to grow inside us. It needs to be birthed. All this takes time and our cooperation. Let us not abort His Life in us. Let us believe.
