“Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves Him who begot also loves him who is begotten of Him. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome. For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world——our faith. Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?” (1Jo 5:1-5 NKJV)
“"Know therefore and understand, [That] from the going forth of the command To restore and build Jerusalem Until Messiah the Prince, [There shall be] seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; The street shall be built again, and the wall, Even in troublesome times. "And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself; And the people of the prince who is to come Shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end of it [shall be] with a flood, And till the end of the war desolations are determined.” (Da 9:25-26 NKJV)
Hab 3:13 You went forth for the salvation of Your people, even for salvation with Your anointed
Hab 3:13 You went forth for the salvation of thy people, even for salvation with Your anointed
Like a Priest – To offer intercession and Sin offering
Like a King – To conquer the unconquerable
Like a Prophet – To deliver and portray the heart of God; fulfill the heart and complete word of God
For Example:“Why do the nations rage, And the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against the LORD and against His Anointed xyvm,..” (Ps 2:1-2 NKJV)“"who by the mouth of Your servant David have said: ‘Why did the nations rage, And the people plot vain things? The kings of the earth took their stand, And the rulers were gathered together Against the LORD and against His Christ (Cristov).’” (Ac 4:25-26 NKJV)
Joh 1:41 He first found his own brother Simon, and said to him, "We have found the Messiah" (which is translated, the Christ).Joh 4:25 The woman said to Him, "I know that Messiah is coming" (who is called Christ). "When He comes, He will tell us all things.
Whoever the Messiah/Christ /Savior - must be: him, "We have found the Messiah" (which is translated, the Christ).- He must have the power to fulfill all three roles- and 300+ scriptures pertaining to HimFor instance…
Birthplace – Bethlehem (Micah 5:2) (roughly 450 yrs before)- Fleeing to Egypt (Ho 11:1) (Roughly 800 BC)- Staying afterward in Nazareth (Jer 23:5) (~ 600 yrs BC)- Lineage to David / Judah (Gen 49) (~ 1500-2000 yrs BC)- Type of Death detail by detail - Ps 22:. They pierced My hands and My feet;(mocking, Dislocation, Pulmonary edema, gambling for clothes) (Roughly 1000 yrs BC) - “"And [one] will say to him, ‘What are these wounds between your arms?’ Then he will answer, ‘[Those] with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.’” (Zec 13:6 NKJV)(Roughly 500 BC)To the Resurrection:Ps 16:10 For You will not leave my soul in Sheol, Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption. (~1000 yrs BC)
One more vital thing: before)The Messiah = the Son of GodPs 2:2 The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying,Ps 2:7 "I will declare the decree: The LORD has said to Me, ‘You are My Son, Today I have begotten You.Jarchi & Aben Ezra in Verse 1. & Kimchi in verse 12.
Thus there is synonymy: before)Mt 26:63 But Jesus kept silent. And the high priest answered and said to Him, "I put You under oath by the living God: Tell us if You are the Christ, the Son of God!“Lu 4:41 And demons also came out of many, crying out and saying, "You are the Christ, the Son of God!" And He, rebuking them, did not allow them to speak, for they knew that He was the Christ.Joh 6:69 "Also we have come to believe and know that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.“Joh 11:27 She said to Him, "Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world."
The Samaritans did: before)Joh 4:25 The woman said to Him, "I know that Messiah is coming" (who is called Christ). "When He comes, He will tell us all things.“ :29 "Come, see a Man who told me all things that I ever did. Could this be the Christ?"Joh 4:42 Then they said to the woman, "Now we believe, not because of what you said, for we ourselves have heard Him and we know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world."
And Jesus Himself did: before)“The woman said to Him, "I know that Messiah is coming" (who is called Christ). "When He comes, He will tell us all things." Jesus said to her, "I who speak to you am [He]."” (Joh 4:25-26 NKJV)“But He kept silent and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked Him, saying to Him, "Are You the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?" Jesus said, "I am.” (Mr 14:61-62 NKJV)“Then they all said, "Are You then the Son of God?" So He said to them, "You [rightly] say that I am."” (Lu 22:70 NKJV)
1Jo 5:1 “Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God...”Do you Believe:- (Prophet) Jesus is God’s own heart incarnate? (In truth God in the flesh)- (Priest) Jesus has paid for your Sins (as only Savior of the World)- (King) That He deserves your total surrender to His Lordship?
“Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ of God...”is born of God,..”(1 Jn 5:1)John 3:3 "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.“
“having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever, because "All flesh [is] as grass, And all the glory of man as the flower of the grass. The grass withers, And its flower falls away, But the word of the LORD endures forever." Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you.”
(1Pe 1:23-25 NKJV)
