Yesterday was the first day of Advent and the Prophesy candle was lit on the Advent wreath.  If you have young children or if you want to do something special as a family devotion, it would be so rewarding to share some of the ancient prophesies concerning Jesus and how they were fulfilled in the New Testament.  Here are just a few of them regarding His birth:

  • Born in Bethlehem.  Micah 5:2
  • He would be called out of Egypt – Hosea 11:1 Jesus family fled Bethlehem to Egypt after His birth.
  • Born of the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
  • Royal lineage of David – follow the family tree.
  • Born of a virgin and called Immanuel.
  • A messenger from out of the wilderness would precede Him and call people to repentance of their sins.  (John, the Baptist)

There are over 300 prophecies in the Bible concerning Jesus.  These words were written centuries before His humble birth in Bethlehem.  They are our proof – our evidence of His existence and the saving work that has been accomplished by Him alone.

Our God is an awesome God.  He leaves nothing to chance.  He even supports what He has done through His written Word, the Bible and those words support themselves.  The prophecies concerning His life give us hope for our own future – not only here on earth, but also in eternity.  What a lovely gift to pass on to future generations.



As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on
