You can add the line

xmessage*font: -*-fixed-*-*-*-*-20-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-*

to the file `~/.Xresources'.  (I think that file is read at the start
of the X session, but to be certain you can add

xrdb -merge ${HOME}/.Xresources

to ~/.xinitrc or ~/.xsession, as the case may be.  I personally keep
my Xresources elsewhere, and merge them as above.)
