For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over His kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this [Isaiah 9:6-7].

Starting in the days of Adam and Eve, God promised to send a Savior for mankind……. A Redeemer to bring sinful mankind into right relationship with Himself. This Redeemer is Jesus Christ, who came to the world in the human form of a little child but left thirty-three years later as risen Lord and victor over the grave. Old Testament saints had many prophetic promises of how and why the coming Messiah would enter humanity. Let me give you a few with their fulfillment.

His arrival on earth:

As a child…[Isaiah 9:6]…[fulfilled in Luke 2:11] Born of a virgin…[Isaiah 7:14]…[fulfilled in Matt. 1:18-23; Luke 1:26-35] Born in the town of Bethlehem…[Micah 5:2-5]…[fulfilled in Matt. 2:1-6] Firstborn son…[Ex. 13:2]…[fulfilled in Luke 2:7, 23; John 3:16; Col. 1:15]

His family line:

The tribe of Judah…[Gen. 49:8-10; Micah 5:2]…[fulfilled in Matt. 1:1-3; Heb. 7:14; Rev. 5:5] David’s line, as a king…[Isaiah 9:7; 2 San. 7:12-13]…[fulfilled in Matt. 1:1] As the seed of Abraham…[Gen.17:7-8, 26: 3-4]…[fulfilled in Matt. 1:1, 17; Gal. 3:16; Heb. 2:16] As the seed of Isaac…[Gen. 17:19, 21:12, 26:2-4]…[fulfilled in Matt.1:2; Rom. 9:7; Heb. 11:17-19]

His eternal nature:

As the offspring of a woman, yet able to “bruise the serpent’s head”…[Gen. 3:15]…[fulfilled in Gal. 4:4; Heb. 2:14] As the King Eternal…[Isaiah 9:7; 1 Tim. 1:17] As the Alpha and Omega…[Rev. 1:8]

Dear friend, God keeps all of His promises. He is the same yesterday,today, and forever. MERRY CHRISTMAS AND MAY GOD RICHLY BLESS YOU
