Christmas is about a fulfilled promise.
For over 1,000 years the Jews had been waiting for the Messiah to come. Over 300 times God had inspired the prophets to prophesy concerning the promise of the coming of Christ. The result of this was that the O.T. prophets had predicted almost every stage of the life of Jesus hundreds of years before it happened. The possibilities of all these prophesies happening by mere chance is mathematically astronomical! It indeed was a miracle.
All of these prophesies were fulfilled because they are the prophecies of God, & God’s prophecies are always-true. He never breaks a promise. God’s Word gives us hope regardless of our situation. That’s why you should read it every day and apply it to your life, that’s what disciples do.
