 “Messianic Prophecies.”

Definition for Prophecy from Webster’s 1828 Dictionary

A foretelling; prediction; a declaration of something to come. As

God only knows future events with certainty, no being but God or

some person informed by him, can utter a real prophecy. The

prophecies recorded in Scripture, when fulfilled, afford most

convincing evidence of the divine original of the Scriptures, as those

who uttered the prophecies could not have foreknown the events

predicted without supernatural instruction.

2 Pet 1.

**********

 Jesus’ Coming was Announced by a Forerunner

John the Baptist

**********

The Prophecy

Isaiah 40:3

The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness,

Prepare ye the way of the LORD,

make straight in the desert a highway for our God.

**********

The Fulfillment of Prophecy

Matthew 3:1; 3

In those days came John the Baptist,

preaching

in the wilderness of Judaea.

For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias,

saying,

The voice of one crying in the wilderness.

 

PREPARE YE THE WAY OF THE LORD, MAKE HIS PATHS

STRAIGHT.

**********

In ancient times whenever a monarch set out on a journey through

the desert and

unknown countries, they would send a forerunner in advance of

their party to make the

king’s approach known.

He was a herald sent to prepare lodging

and to clear the way

before the king.

The King of all Kings

was coming to His people Israel

and John the

Baptist was

preparing the way before Him with his preaching.

**********

Jesus’ birth,

life,

death and resurrection

is the greatest event that has happened in all of

history.

Everything small and great pivots on this infallible fact.

**********

 History itself is

divided into two parts –

B.C. – all that happened Before Christ

and A.D. meaning AnnoDomini,

(Latin for “Year of Our Lord”),

which speaks of everything that has happened

 since His coming.

**********

Jesus isn’t just great.

He is the Greatest!

He is the Superlative of every virtue and

excellence.

***********

There never has been a God like our God!

All human speech is inadequate

to describe Who He is or to express His infinite power and

greatness!

Even though the wise men didn’t arrive at His birth as depicted in

this video, it

nevertheless makes a composite of the two blessed events – the

coming of the shepherds

and the Magi, into one picture. The events are not the same, but the

expressions of awe

as seen in their faces at seeing the Messiah make the point.

Thank you for stopping by and have a joyous Christmas season!
