Advent #1: Messiah is Coming!

Isaiah 9


These days, we live in a world of “Amazon Prime.” 2 day shipping is the norm now.

We can order and get things delivered to us pretty fast!


What was the longest time you ever had to wait for a piece of mail, or delivery package?


God inspired His prophets—hundreds of years ahead of time—to predict details of the coming of Messiah, the Savior:

  • The manner of Messiah’s birth—of a Virgin
  • The location of Messiah’s birth—Bethlehem in
  • The ancestry of Messiah’s birth—A descendent of Abraham and David
  • The nature of Messiah’s birth—both human and divine


Accurate predictions about Messiah’s coming and birth support the claim that the Bible is a miraculous, God-inspired book!


“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given,
    and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”  
Isaiah 9:6 (NIV)


“But when the time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under law, to redeem those under law, that we might receive the full rights of sons.”  Galatians 4:4-5 (NIV)
