Christmas is a birthday. The birthday of the King of kings. Jesus was born King of kings and Lord of lords. He did not become king. He was born King and died as King of the Jews. Jesus purpose for coming to earth was to save His people from their sins. (Matthew 1:21). Jesus’ name means, “salvation”, Yahweh saves. Jesus’ name in Hebrew is Y’shua. Jesus is the son of God, the Son of David, the Son of Man. The promised Messiah of Israel foretold by the prophet Isaiah hundreds of years before His birth.
The Immanuel prophecy:
“Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.” which means, God-With-Us.
The Coming Messiah:
“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah,
Though you are little among the thousands of Judah,
Yet out of you shall come forth to Me
The One to be Ruler in Israel,
Whose goings forth are from of old,
The Government of the Promised Son:
For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given:
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of peace.
Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom.
To order it and establish it with judgement and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
And a Happy 1st year blog anniversary to Holy Moments with God. It’s a blessing sharing God’s promises with each of you.
