Question Is there prophesy for the Mashiach in Torah?

I have a serious question concerning

[...] I was wondering if anything Moses wrote or said to the Jewish people predicted to the Mashiach.

Thanks.

Question Are there any prophesies to the mashiach in the psalms?

[...]
So, can someone clarify what the psalms are and how they [are or aren't] about the mashiach [...]?

Please and thank you.

Even if some reference in psalms or else where in the Tanach seems to "fit" to what happened to a specific person, that does not make that person the moshiach.

There are lots of arguments why the individual you mentioned may or may not "fit" one prophecy or another, but that does not prove, by itself, that he was anything special.

Its also worth mentioning that the criteria for being Moshiach include more than just satisfying prophecies.

One other piece of advice. The moderators tend to close or delete threads that are about other religions, so if you persist in this line of questioning, I think you will find yourself directed to another site.

There is, though I'm not so learned I can quote stuff off the top of my head. How about going through something like the Artscroll Tehillim or another book with commentary. You will find plenty of information there.

See Rambam's Laws Concerning Kings, which is available in English, though I'm not sure if its online. There are also lots of great talks from the Rebbe on the subject, some of which are collected into books in English.

So stop talking about him
