recap last week and the importance of it
We need to fully understand something. Scripture isnt just a collection of good storys

Scripture is one story

Look at genesis and revelation. The capstones of the Bible. One describes the end and the other the beginning. One builds off the other.
Why is this important? It is important to remember because of what we unveiled last week. God never had a Plan B. God is never surprised and he had a Plan A all the way through scripture. His plan doesnt just stop with what is in scripture, but it carries on through us as well. This is exciting news
I want to focus on the continue plan of God in the Christmas story. Tonight we are gonna look at the prophecies of the OT and their fulfillment in the Christmas story. We will do more than just merely acknowledge them though. We will discuss, why it was important then and why is it important today.
So buckle your set belt we are going back to the future
Roads?? Where we are going we dont need roads??......
Isaiah 7:14 NIV
Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.
Matthew 1:18 NIV
This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit.

Why was this important then?

- Jesus was was the god-man

- It was a clear statement of who his father was

Why is it important now?

- It paints a picture of who our father is

- Our circumstances do not dictate god’s presence

After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”

Why was this important then?

yes it was a little town/ we sing the song/ source of water

- not just fulfill prophecy of birth but that he was the source of life

- To show that he was a different kind of king

Why is this important now?

-He came to bring you life

-Where you came from isn’t near as important as where you are headed

Psalm 72:10–11 NIV
May the kings of Tarshish and of distant shores bring tribute to him. May the kings of Sheba and Seba present him gifts. May all kings bow down to him and all nations serve him.
Matthew 2:11 NIV
On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

-To express his godhood and worthiness

Why is it important now?
