Nonexistent Prophecies of the New Testament: Christian-Messianics Will Not Address Part 1 & 2


“By Malaakyah Lawya Yahsharaal”

Yahshalwam Family,

It is apparent to me that many people take me to be a lightning rod of derision amongst our Messianic Hebrew Christian family.

All I can say is Psalms 120:7 “I am all peace; but when I speak, they are for war.”

Any challenge to the integrity of the Bible will very likely draw the familiar prophecy-fulfillment response: “If the Bible is not inspired of God,” Hebrew Messianic Christians will ask, “how do you explain all the prophecies that Messiah/JC fulfilled?” The answer to this question is quite simple. The so-called prophecy fulfillments that the writers of Christ of the New Testament claims to have fulfilled were only in the vain imaginations of the writers minds.

The famous virgin-birth prophecy of Isaiah 7:14 the word virgin is erroneously mistranslated from the Hebrew word “almah” which correctly translated means young woman comes to mind. Matt. 2:18 is the NT corresponding imposition to Isaiah 7:14, the prophecy of the messiah’s birth in Bethlehem of Micah 5:2 and Matt. 2:6, the prophecy of King Herod’s slaughter of the children of Bethlehem (Jer. 31:15 and Matt. 2:18) – these and many like them became prophecy fulfillments only through the distortions and misapplications of the Tanach (Old Testament) statements. In each example one can see the distortions just by reading the chapters involved in context.

Many professing JC/Messiah have the propensity to take the scriptures out of context. One must read the OT/Tanach as one long continuation of writings in order to have proper context when read. When done in this manner it is easy to see the distortions the NT imposes upon the Hebrew scriptures.

To discuss these in depth would require an entire book, so instead I will focus on another aspect of the prophecy-fulfillment argument: New Testament claims of prophecy fulfullment for which no Old Testament/Tanach sources can be found.

An example would be John 7:37-38 where the writers of the New Testament claims JC/Messiah allegedly said, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. He who believes in me, as the Scripture (OT) has said, Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” At that time, the only scriptures were the Old Testament/Tanach, yet try as they have, Bible inerrantist have never found this statement that JC/Messiah said was in the scriptures of his day. The prophecy was and still is nonexistant.

Simular to this is a “prophecy fulfillment” that was referred to in Matt. 2:23. Here it was claimed that when Joseph took his family to Nazareth, he fulfilled that “which was spoken by the prophets, ‘He [JC/Messiah] shall be called a Nazarene.’ My question is which prophets? “In all of the Old Testament/Tanach, however, neither the word Nazareth nor Nazarene is even mentioned, so how could it be true that the prophets of YAH had predicted that the messiah would be called a Nazarene?

To avoid admitting that a mistake was made, my inerrant Christian/Messianic family point out that Matthew did not say that this prophecy had been written; he said only that it had been “spoken” by the prophets.

A weakness in this explaination is the fact that Matthew routinely introduced alledged prophecy fulfillments by saying that thus and so had been “spoken” by the prophets. Matthew claimed, for example, that the preaching of John the Baptist fulfilled what had been “spoken by Isaiah the prophet: Matt. 3:3 “The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make ye ready the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.” However, this statement that Matthew said Isaiah had spoken is a quotation of what had been written in Isaiah 40:3 which has nothing at all to do with the messiah of the NT.

This portion of Isaiah 40:1-11 is an end of days prophecy concerning our beautiful heritage under YAH alone. YAH declares his unique abilities from verse 12 thru verse 31 and are in no way to be shared with this NT fabricated messiah. Again the prophecy was and is nonexistant.

Other written “prophecies” that Matthew introduced by saying that they had been “spoken” can be found in Matt. 4:14-17 vs. 17 “From that time JC/Messiah began to preach, and to say ‘Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. At hand? That means right now or very shortly.

Obviously nearly 2000 years have transpired since his alleged death and the kingdom of heaven has not manifested yet. So Matt. 4:14-17 tries to tie its “prophesy to (Isaiah 9:1-2), properly understood one must first read Isa. 8:16 “Bind up the testimony (Torah/Tanach), seal the law among MY disciples.”

Is Matthew or the writers of Matthew known as YAH’s disciples? No they are not! Therefore we can see why there so called “prophecies” never come to pass. They are not YAH’s disciples and do not have the understanding that only YAH gives to know HIS way. Thus for us to even consider the NT as a book of truth is abomination!

The writers nor the Christ of the NT/ Messiah was never sent by YAH to speak to the children of Israel HIS truth. Again the “prophecies” of the NT was and is nonexistant, total fabrications.

Remember Isaiah warned our people 740 B.C.E. to 681 B.C.E. to return to the law of YAH so we would remain in our land. YAH’s prophecy for us through Isaiah was not heeded, Isaiah 8:20 “To the law and to the testimony: if they (NT writers/JC/Messiah) speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them. Obviously by the time of Matthew, the word of YAH was not being practiced in the land as the Edomite King Herod was in charge in Jerusalem by way of the Roman Empire from 41 B.C.E. Our true Israelite family had long been spewed out of the land when this gospel account was written somewhere around 50 C.E. to 70 C.E.

Other written “prophesies” continued… Matt. 12:17-21 with (Isaiah 45:1-4), Matt. 13:35 with (Psalm 78:2), and Matt. 21:4-5 with (Zechariah 9:9). Since all these alleged prophecy statements can be found written in the Old Testament/Tanach, we can only assume that Matthew’s style was to use the word spoken to introduce statements that had in fact been written. Undoubtedly, he intended the expression to mean the same thing in Matt. 2:23 as it did elsewhere when he referred to things that had been “spoken” by the prophets. Hence, he made a mistake in 2:23, because no prophet (much less prophets) had ever written anything about Nazareth or Nazarenes. Total fabrication on the part of Matthew, again “prophecies” nonexistant.

The New Testament gospels do not speak according “To the law (Torah) AND to the testimony (prophets)! If they (NT scribes/Pastors/Messianic Moreh’s/Christians) do not speak according to this (YAH’s) word, it is because there is no light in them (Isaiah 8:20).

Until next time family,

Shalom

Continued….Part 2

In telling the story of Judas’s suicide, Matthew erred again in claiming that Jeremiah had prophesied about the purchase of the field where Juds was buried. After casting down in the sanctuary the thirty pieces of silver that he hadbeen paid for betraying JC, Judas went away and hanged himself.

The priests then took the money and bought the potter’s field to bury Judas in. Matthew claimed that this was a prophecy fulfillment in Matt. 27:9-10: “Then was fulfilled that which was spoken through Jeremiah the prophet saying, ‘And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was priced, whom certain of the children of Israel did price’; vs. 10 and they gave them for the potter’s field, as the Lord appointed me.”

In reality, however, no statement like this can be found in the book of Jeremiah. Inerrantist (the just believe crowd) will sometimes defend Matthew by referring to Zechariah 11:12-13, which makes mention of thirty pieces of silver but in a context entirely different from the statement that Matthew “quoted.” Besides, even if Zechariah had obviously written the statement that Matthew quoted, this would hardly acquit Matthew of error, because he said Jeremiah, not Zechariah, had made the prophecy.

A more serious nonexistant prophecy concerns the very foundation of Christianity. On the night of his alleged resurrection, JC said to his disciples, “Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer, and rise again from the dead the third day (Luke 24:46). The Apostle Paul agreed with this claim that the scriptures had referred to a third-day resurrection of the messiah: “For I delivered unto you first of all that which also I received: that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; and that he was buried; and that he hath been raised on the third day according to the scriptures” (I Cor. 15:3-4).

Two New Testament writers, then, claimed (lied) that the scriptures had spoken of a resurrection of the messiah on the third day. The problem that this claim (lie) poses for the prophecy-fulfillment argument is that no one can cite an Old Testament/Tanach scripture that mentions a third-day resurrection. As a matter of fact, no one can even cite an Old Testament/Tanach scripture that clearly and undeniably refers to a resurrection of the messiah, PERIOD, but that is another article for another time.

There are other major weaknesses in the prophecy-fulfillment argument, but the fact that New Testament writers so often referred to prophetic utterances that can’t even be found in the Old Testament/Tanach is enough to cast doubt on their many claims of prophecy fullment. If they were wrong when they referred to prophetic statements that cannot be found anywhere in the Old Testament/Tanach, how can we know they were right when they claimed fulfillment of statements that can be found? The truth of the matter is we can’t.

So what can we say of those who still deny the truth presented here? Are they not delusional? The very NT book they put so much trust in condemns them as such!

2 Thessalonians 2:11 “And for this reason GOD will send them STRONG DELUSION, that they should believe the lie (the messiah myth/NT), vs. 12 “That they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth (Torah/Tanach) but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

What is the remedy to this “Strong Delusion”? Repentance! The simple act of acknowledging your sin against YAH; Idolatry. Pray to YAH and confess to HIM that you will confirm HIS words as we did at Mt. Sinai, Exodus 19:1-9:

1In the third month, when the children of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day came they into the wilderness of Sinai.

2For they were departed from Rephidim, and were come to the desert of Sinai, and had pitched in the wilderness; and there Israel camped before the mount.

3And Moses went up unto God, and the LORD called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel;

4Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles’ wings, and brought you unto myself.

5Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:

6And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.

7And Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and laid before their faces all these words which the LORD commanded him.

8And all the people answered together, and said, All that the LORD hath spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the people unto the LORD.

9And the LORD said unto Moses, Lo, I come unto thee in a thick cloud, that the people may hear when I speak with thee, and believe thee for ever. And Moses told the words of the people unto the LORD.

And finally keep your vow to YAH and walk in HIS way all the days of your life, perhaps you too can be saved in the day of YAH’s wrath.
