Messianic prophecy is given in the Old Testament and fulfilled in


the New Testament.  These prophecies were written in the Bible by


 forty authors, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, in numerous


books of the Bible over a millenium.




Jesus Was Born of a Virgin

The coming of the Messiah was first announced in Genesis 3:15 when God said He

would be the

Seed of the woman” and would crush the power of the devil:

“And I will put enmity between thee and the woman,

and between thy seed and her Seed;

It shall bruise thy head,

and thou shalt bruise His heel.”


speaking through the prophet Isaiah,

again foretold the Messiah’s coming as both

GodWith Us

and a “Sign” through the woman,

and that she would be a “virgin”:

“Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign;


a virgin shall conceive,

and bear a son,

and shall call his name Immanuel.”

Isaiah 7:14



In the book of Matthew we see that Mary fulfilled the prophecies

and gave birth to Him Who is

God manifest in the flesh:

“And she shall bring forth a son,

and thou shalt call his name Jesus:

for He shall save his people from their sins.

 Now all this was done,

that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the








a virgin shall be with child,



and shall bring forth a son,



and they shall call his name Emmanuel,



which being interpreted is,



God With Us.”



Matthew 1:21-23




My heart is touched in knowing that before the foundation of the


world, God the Father already



had a plan to send His Son Jesus Christ, that mankind could be


reconciled back to Him.  In



In Genesis we read His plan was already in place.  He didn’t want


willful mankind to be forever



without a Savior.  Since He made every human being with a free


will, they have a choice to


accept or reject His plan of salvation.  What a wonderful Father!  He


didn’t put a computer chip



into mankind so they would be programmed to serve Him.  No! Not


at all!  He wants our love



for Him to come from our heart, and not because we have to love


Him.  We love Him,


because He first loved us.  It is a reciprocal and beautiful


relationship that transcends every


other relationship.




Love is the Child of Freedom,


Never that of Domination.
