What is the best way to search for each Old Testament verse that refers to the coming Messiah/Jesus/Etc.?

Thank you,

To the best of my Biblical knowledge the Old Testament and the Inter Testament period writings do not mention Jesus.  

And most of the passages that reference the Messiah do not use the word "Messiah" 

So most likely what you will need is a reference book on the subject where some scholar has done the research for us.  

For example: Which member of the Godhead was in the cloud during the exodus?  Who was it that visited Joshua, Moses, and Job?

Dictionaries will take a view on this - such as the LBD article

Thank you MJ and Graham for the links!  Not only did they give me what I needed but it also introduced me to websites for future use.  Much appreciated.

One search idea is looking for Messianic articles:

([heading,largetext] Messianic) NEAR prophecy

Sorting by Count finds two of the first three resources are in a collection:

The Works of A. J. Maas includes two volumes of Christ in Type and Prophecy (with deuterocanonical chapters)

Expanded search is:

([heading,largetext] Messianic,Fulfilled) NEAR prophecy NEAR (Jesus,Yeshua)

includes Faithlife Study Bible table Jesus’ Fulfillment of Old Testament Prophecy
