CHAPTER 1

WHO IS THE END?

Messianic Prophecies

ost end time prophecy is still future. The greatest

prophecy, and the key to end time prophecy, concerns

the Jewish Messiah. The Messiah is to be a human being, and

at the same time equal (a fellow, or equal; see Zech. 13:7, KJV)

to God. His divine nature is attested to by His being from ever-

lasting (see Micah 5:2; Psalm 93:2, KJV). A single Old Testa-

ment passage speaks of His human nature (a child), His divine

nature (a son), and addresses Him as Mighty God:

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the gov-

ernment will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Won-

derful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of

Peace”

(Isa 9:6).

He is to reconcile man to God, necessary because of man’s

fall in the Garden of Eden at the beginning. As we shall see, a

“who” can be “an end.” The question of who is the Messiah,

gives us the clue in answering our question of, “Who Is The

End?”
