To those who are Jewish..not to be mean..just curious....?
If the Messiah comes(we know that for you it will be the first time)....and it happens to be Christ ....
what will you make of that one?
Were he to come, he would not be the Jewsish Messiah, since there are very specific definitions for what would compromise a Messiah, and Jesus would not fit the definition
..ok..so..the rest of the world would worship this Messiah...and the messiah you ARE still waiting for..
the wait continues.....ok..

there is nothing in the universe more disgusting and lowly to a jew than worshipping a human being.
if the rest of the world wants to get on their knees and pray to a being of flesh and blood, then by all means, let them do so. as for us, our G-d is not a man, and we will never pray to a man who says he is a god.
you ask us what we will do when the messiah comes and it turns out he is christ. well, no offense, but the very idea of the messiah comes from G-d and the prophets, and G-d and the prophets were very clear on who the messiah would be. unless G-d and the prophets deliberately deceived us, and that is very doubtful, then there is nothing for us to worry about.
on the flip side, how will you react when you are dead and you are standing before G-d, and he asks you why you were so easily led into idolatry? since you appear to be a christian, then i assume you have read the bible, in which G-d clearly states that he alone is G-d, that G-d is One, the G-d is not a man, and that you should have no other gods before G-d, then what exactly is your excuse? perhaps you skipped these passages? here, let me point them out to you:
Deut 6:4 - "Hear, O Israel, the Lord our G-d, the Lord is One."
Hosea 11:9 - "For I am G-d, and not a man."
Numbers 23:19 - "G-d is not a man, that he should lie; neither the Son of Man, that he should repent."
oh, and here's a really great one, in which G-d is angry because a human has claimed to be G-d:
Ezekiel 28:1 - "And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying - Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Eternal God; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a god, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God:"
isaiah is probably the prophet from which most messianic prophecies are taken. he communed with G-d, he spoke the message of G-d, and what does he say about the idea that of worshipping anything other than the eternal G-d?
Isaiah 44:6 - "I am the first, I am the last, and beside me there is no G-d."
and i'm going to quote from a website here, so this is not in my own words:
When Isaiah tells us that God said, "I am the first," it means that God has no father. When Isaiah tells us that God said, "I am the last," it means that God has no literal son. And when Isaiah tells us that God said, "Besides me there is no God," it means that God does not share being God with any other god, or demi-god, or semi-god, or persons.
This is why God told us in the Ten Commandments, in Exodus 20:3, "Thou shalt have no other gods before me." Even if you think they are god or gods, you cannot have them before God. You do not pray to them in order to get to God, and you don't pray in their names.
Christians may tell us, "Behold Your God," but the last time we heard something similar was in Exodus 32:4, when the ex-slaves pointed to the Golden Calf and said, "Eilay elohecha --these are your gods."

We won't worship the messiah -- he will NOT be divine. He will be a great leader (human) who will bring peace on earth. If it's Jesus, he will have to become human again and he will have to bring peace on earth. For that we will be very grateful, but we will only worship God, not the messiah.
Even the Christians will be grateful as our God doesn't condemn "non-believers" to eternal suffering. "Hell" is a short period of cleansing similar to the Catholic purgatory.
