Messianic Prophecies

(Prophecies Regarding the Future Anointed King of Israel)

Will be David Himself (or some believe a descendant)

"And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even My servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd. And I Yahowah will be their Elohim, and My servant David prince among them; I Yahowah have spoken." Ezekiel 34:23-24, JPS
(See also Jeremiah 23:5"See, the days are coming, says Yahowah, when I will give to David a true Branch, and he will be ruling as king, acting wisely, doing what is right, and judging uprightly in the land." -- Jeremiah 23:5 BBE, Ezekiel 37:21-28And say unto them: Thus saith the adoni Yahowah: Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the nations, whither they are gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land; and I will make them one nation in the land, upon the mountains of Israel, and one king shall be king to them all; and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all; neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions; but I will save them out of all their dwelling-places, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them; so shall they be My people, and I will be their Elohim. And My servant David shall be king over them, and they all shall have one shepherd; they shall also walk in Mine ordinances, and observe My statutes, and do them. And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob My servant, wherein your fathers dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, they, and their children, and their children's children, for ever; and David My servant shall be their prince for ever. Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them - it shall be an everlasting covenant with them; and I will establish them, and multiply them, and will set My sanctuary in the midst of them for ever. My dwelling-place also shall be over them; and I will be their Elohim, and they shall be My people. And the nations shall know that I am Yahowah that sanctify Israel, when My sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for ever.' Ezekiel 37:21-28 JPS; Isaiah 11:1-9"And there will come a rod out of the broken tree of Jesse, and a branch out of his roots will give fruit. And the spirit of Yahowah will be resting on him, the spirit of wisdom and good sense, the spirit of wise guiding and strength, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of Yahowah; And he will not be guided in his judging by what he sees, or give decisions by the hearing of his ears: But he will do right in the cause of the poor, and give wise decisions for those in the land who are in need; and the rod of his mouth will come down on the cruel, and with the breath of his lips he will put an end to the evil-doer. And righteousness will be the cord of his robe, and good faith the band round his breast. And the wolf will be living with the lamb, and the leopard will take his rest with the young goat; and the lion will take grass for food like the ox; and the young lion will go with the young ones of the herd; and a little child will be their guide. And the cow and the bear will be friends while their young ones are sleeping together. And the child at the breast will be playing by the hole of the snake, and the older child will put his hand on the bright eye of the poison-snake. There will be no cause of pain or destruction in all my holy mountain: for the earth will be full of the knowledge of Yahowah as the sea is covered by the waters." -- Isaiah 11:1-9 BBE ; Jeremiah 30:7-10"Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it; and it is a time of trouble unto Jacob, but out of it shall he be saved. And it shall come to pass in that day, saith Yahowah of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bands; and strangers shall no more make him their bondman; But they shall serve Yahowah their Elohim, and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them. Therefore fear thou not, O Jacob My servant, saith Yahowah; neither be dismayed, O Israel; for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall again be quiet and at ease, and none shall make him afraid." -- Jeremiah 30:7-10 JPS ; Jeremiah 33:14-16"Behold, the days come, saith Yahowah, that I will perform that good word which I have spoken concerning the house of Israel and concerning the house of Judah. In those days, and at that time, will I cause a shoot of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely; and this is the name whereby she shall be called, Yahowah is our righteousness." -- Jeremiah 33:14-16 JPS ; and Hosea 3:4-5"For the children of Israel shall sit solitary many days without king, and without prince, and without sacrifice, and without pillar, and without ephod or teraphim; afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek Yahowah their Elohim, and David their king; and shall come trembling unto Yahowah and to His goodness in the end of days." -- Hosea 3:4-5 JPS)
