Messiah to Come Twice Like Isaac, Joseph, Moses, and David
The Torah, and the rest of the TaNaKh teaches that the Messiah would come twice for Israel, first to be rejected, despised, and killed; and then resurrected and to ascend to Heaven, and then come again to bring Israel to the Promised Land in the Olam Habah (World to Come). The Torah teaches the first and second coming of Messiah through the various messianic figures it presents.
Messiah to come twice like Isaac, the death of the righteous atoning for Israel:
-Was not Isaac offered up, but before hand Abraham said “we will return to you?”
Breisheit 22:5 | Genesis 22:5:
And Abraham said unto his young men: “Abide ye here with the ass, and I and the lad will go yonder; and we will worship, and come back to you.”
Messiah to come twice like Joseph:
-Was not Joseph considered dead by Israel, only to realize at the end that he was alive?
Breisheit 42:38 | Genesis 42:38:
And he said: ‘My son shall not go down with you; for his brother is dead, and he only is left; if harm befall him by the way in which ye go, then will ye bring down my gray hairs with sorrow to the grave.
Breisheit 45:28 | Genesis 45:28
And Israel said: ‘It is enough; Joseph my son is yet alive; I will go and see him before I die.’
Messiah to come twice like Moses:
-Did not Moses come once to deliver Israel from Egypt, only to leave, then come again and complete the task?
Shemot 2:11-12 | Exodus 2:11-12:
11 And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown up, that he went out unto his brethren, and looked on their burdens; and he saw an Egyptian smiting a Hebrew, one of his brethren.
12 And he looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no man, he smote the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand.
And of Messiah’s rejection at his first coming, it is written also of Moses:
Shemot 2:14 | Exodus 2:14:
And he said: ‘Who made thee a ruler and a judge over us? thinkest thou to kill me, as thou didst kill the Egyptian?’ And Moses feared, and said: ‘Surely the thing is known.’
And of Messiah mistakenly being taught as being a pagan, Egyptian, by those of the nations, it is written also of Moses:
Shemot 2:19 | Exodus 2:19:
And they said: ‘An Egyptian delivered us out of the hand of the shepherds, and moreover he drew water for us, and watered the flock.’
And of Messiah coming a second time, as it is written also of Moses:
Shemot 3:9-10 | Exodus 3:9-10:
9 And now, behold, the cry of the children of Israel is come unto Me; moreover I have seen the oppression wherewith the Egyptians oppress them.
10 Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth My people the children of Israel out of Egypt.’
And of Messiah going back to deliver his people, after those who sought his life are dead, and with his bride and his students, to establish his reign, like Moses it is written:
Shemot 4:18-20 | Exodus 4:18-20:
18 And Moses went and returned to Jethro his father-in-law, and said unto him: ‘Let me go, I pray thee, and return unto my brethren that are in Egypt, and see whether they be yet alive.’ And Jethro said to Moses: ‘Go in peace.’
19 And the LORD said unto Moses in Midian: ‘Go, return into Egypt; for all the men are dead that sought thy life.’
20 And Moses took his wife and his sons, and set them upon an ass, and he returned to the land of Egypt; and Moses took the rod of G-d in his hand
-Did not also Moses die in the Wilderness, while Yeshoshua led the people into the Land?
Devarim 34:5 | Deuteronomy 34:5:
So Moses the servant of the LORD died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the LORD.
Devarim 34:9 | Deuteronomy 34:9:
And Yehoshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom; for Moses had laid his hands upon him; and the children of Israel hearkened unto him, and did as the LORD commanded Moses.
Yehoshua 1:1-2 | Joshua 1:1-2:
1 NOW IT came to pass after the death of Moses the servant of the LORD, that the LORD spoke unto Yehoshua the son of Nun, Moses’ minister, saying:
2 ‘Moses My servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel.
-Who brings the people into the Land, if not the Messiah?
Bamidbar 14:8 | Numbers 14:8:
If the LORD delight in us, then He will bring us into this land, and give it unto us—a land which floweth with milk and honey.
Messiah to come twice like David:
-Concerning David, didn’t he come to Israel first to serve a king (King Shaul), and during that time deliver the people with war on their enemies, before he himself became king and established his reign?
1 Shemuel 17:58 | 1 Samuel 17:58:
And Saul said to him: ‘Whose son art thou, thou young man?’ And David answered: ‘I am the son of thy servant Jesse the Beth-lehemite.’
1 Shemuel 18:8 | 1 Samuel 18:8:
And Saul was very wroth, and this saying displeased him; and he said: ‘They have ascribed unto David ten thousands, and to me they have ascribed but thousands; and all he lacketh is the kingdom!’
– Didn’t he not build the Temple before he died?
Melachim 8:18 | Kings 8:18:
18 But the LORD said unto David my father: Whereas it was in thy heart to build a house for My name, thou didst well that it was in thy heart;
19 nevertheless thou shalt not build the house; but thy son that shall come forth out of thy loins, he shall build the house for My name.
He (Messiah Yeshua) was a prophet from among our brothers, like Moses. He taught the people the Torah, did not sin, died outside the camp like Moses (also like the red heifer). He didn’t build the Temple before his death (like King David), and rose to life again from the dead, like Isaac. If one does not see the Messiah at all in the Torah concerning these things, is because one has not made true teshuvah yet.
We are told to obey the Angel who’s name is HaShem, so that we are forgiven; and by that we are to choose life by obeying Moses who says to obey the Messiah who says to “repent, for the kingdom of G-d is near.”
It is truly my hope that you see that the King of Israel, the Redeemer, the Rock of Israel, our Savior, is HaShem, and HaShem alone.
