THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
If you want to get an idea of snow skiing:
1) Fill a blender with ice, then
2) hit the pulse button and let the spray blast your face.
3) Leave the ice on your face until it melts.
The reality you face may decrease your desire!
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.
Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive,
and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
But thou, Bethlehem 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.
If you would get an idea of Jesus being Messiah,
look at the purposeful presentation of prophecy in the Old Testament.
The reality you face may increase your desire for HIM!
Over centuries of time, more than 324 prophecies were written in the Old Testament concerning Messiah.
The mathematical probability of ONE man fulfilling only 49 prophecies is:
1 in 562,949,953,421,312 !!
The mathematical probability of ONE man fulfilling 324 prophecies is too
astronomical for the mind to comprehend!!
Yet, Jesus fulfilled ALL 324 of them!!
Truly He came in an impossible manner!
**Born "seed" of a woman. (Gen. 3:15 above)
Everyone knows only men have seed.
**Born "of a virgin." (Is. 7:14 above)
Only by the miraculous intervention of God.
**Born in “Bethlehem." (Micah 5:2 above)
The name literally means "house of bread."
And, Jesus is the "bread of life." (John 6:35, 48)
Wrapped in "swaddling clothes," on that first CHRISTmas morn,
was the Person of God brought into the world,
the One by Whom God would pay God the ransom for mankind,
and through Whom ONLY one can receive eternal forgiveness and salvation!
