Bible prophecy: John 3:16 Prophecy written: During the first century Prophecy fulfilled: Currently being fulfilled
In books, movies and Internet articles, so much attention is given to the prophecies that foretell the future of the world that we sometimes overlook the prophecies that foretell our own futures, on an individual basis. Consider, for example, John 3:16, in which Jesus prophesies that anyone who believes in him will be given the gift of eternal life with God. – Copyright © George Konig, Ray Konig and 100Prophecies.org
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

Bible prophecy: Isaiah 40:1-5,9 Prophecy written: Between 701-681 BC Prophecy fulfilled: About 27 AD
In Isaiah 40:3, the prophet writes about a person in the desert who prepares the way for the Lord. This prophecy foreshadowed the life of John the Baptist, who played an important role in preparing the groundwork for the ministry of Jesus Christ. Jesus was born shortly after John the Baptist about 2000 years ago. The book of Matthew records many events of the life of Jesus and of John the Baptist. In Matthew 3:1-2, it says: “In those days John the Baptist came, preaching in the Desert of Judea, and saying, Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.” – Copyright © George Konig, Ray Konig and 100Prophecies.org
1 Comfort, comfort my people, says your God.
2 Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and proclaim to her that her hard service has been completed, that her sin has been paid for, that she has received from the LORD’s hand double for all her sins.
3 A voice of one calling: “In the desert prepare the way for the LORD; make straight in the wilderness a highway for our God.
4 Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain.
5 And the glory of the LORD will be revealed, and all mankind together will see it. For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”
9 . . . say to the towns of Judah, “Here is your God!”
