Join with us as we walk the highway, see the signposts and travel through the Bible discovering how God planned the Christmas Story from the beginning of the Earth.
Genesis Chapter 3: 15 says: “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.”
Through this “One Man” all the nations of the world will be blessed. We read in Genesis Chapter 12 that Jacob is the chosen path.
In Genesis 49:10 the highway for the Messiah is chosen through the lineage of Judah.
The family of David is chosen to be the line of which “The Seed” shall come. God says to David in I Chronicles Chapter 17:11-14 that:
- David’s bloodline is the only legal ruler.
- One Descendant will ruler eternally
- One Descendant will have a unique relationship with God.
The next signpost is found in Isaiah Chapter 9. “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
Jeremiah Chapter 23:5-6 “Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE Lord OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.”
Micah Chapter 5 “But thou, Beth–lehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.”
Galations Chapter 4:4-5 “But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.”
Isaiah Chapter 7: 14 “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”
Luke Chapter 1:30 “And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.”
