Today and tomorrow we are going to read promises God gave through the Old Testament Prophets.
2 The people who are now living in darkness will see a great light. They are now living in a very dark land. But a light will shine on them. 3 Lord, you will make our nation larger. You will increase their joy. They will show you how glad they are. They will be as glad as people are at harvest time. They will be as glad as warriors are when they share the things they’ve taken after a battle. 4 You set Israel free from Midian long ago. In the same way, you will break the heavy yoke that weighs Israel down. You will break the wooden beams that are on their shoulders. You will break the rods of those who strike them down. 5 Every fighting man’s boot that he wore in battle will be burned up. So will every piece of clothing covered with blood. All of them will be thrown into the fire. 6 A child will be born to us. A son will be given to us. He will rule over us. And he will be called Wonderful Adviser and Mighty God. He will also be called Father Who Lives Forever and Prince Who Brings Peace. 7 There will be no limit to how great his authority is. The peace he brings will never end. He will rule on David’s throne and over his kingdom. He will make the kingdom strong and secure. His rule will be based on what is fair and right. It will last forever. The Lord’s great love will make sure that happens. He rules over all.Isaiah 9:1-7 NIrV

The Lord continues,
“When Israel was a young nation, I loved them. I chose to bring my son out of Egypt.Hosea 11:1 NIrV
The Lord says,
“Bethlehem Ephrathah, you might not be an important town in the nation of Judah. But out of you will come for me a ruler over Israel. His family line goes back to the early years of your nation. It goes all the way back to days of long ago.”Micah 5:2 NIrV
The prophets told of the coming of Jesus hundreds of years before he was born. Jesus was born a barn in the small town of Bethlehem. Jesus brought hope, peace and eternal. The birth of Jesus was the best gift ever. Have you accepted the gift? Have questions email, message or call us.
