Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel. Isaiah 7:14
For the month of December I decided to dedicate everyday to the coming of our King Jesus Christ. Kind of like an advent calendar this will begin our “countdown to Christmas” This Christmas season let’s remember the real reason for the season; the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The prophecy of the Messiah has been fulfilled let’s be glad and rejoice!
700 years everyone was waiting for the prophecy to be fulfilled foretold by Isaiah; looking for a sign of the coming of the Messiah; as you know God works in mysterious ways; people were expecting an executioner but what we received was the “Prince of Peace” To deliver us from our sins and provide hope and salvation for us all.
Many signs were giving including the “Star of Bethlehem”. (Matthew 2:1-12) This fulfilled another prophecy from the Old Testament. This allowed everyone including the wise men to find Jesus and worship him.
Also prophesied Jesus was delivered by the virgin Mary, this was important because Jesus was sinless and pure. The only one to ever walk the Earth that knew no sin.
Let’s remember Jesus was specifically named “Immanuel” meaning “God is with us” Thru Jesus God was with us here on Earth, taught us how to live, how to love, how to forgive, and mostly how to save our souls.
It’s difficult in these times to even get Jesus mentioned anymore because we live in a “politically correct” world. It’s alright to throw Santa and Frosty in our faces but heavens forbid if you mention Jesus.
So this Christmas season let’s continue to keep Christ in Christmas and reflect on the important events that has delivered us all from death. The gifts that were receiving or giving can never compare to the gift God has already giving us in Jesus name Amen
