25 Fulfilled Promises of Christmas:
Advent Reflections for those who Wait, Watch, and Wonder Once More
Compiled and composed by Stephen A. Macchia
Promise #6 – the Messiah will be a prophet like Moses (Deut. 18: 15-19 and Matthew 13:57; Luke 24: 19). God used Moses as a mouthpiece of the Almighty, a prophet to give voice to what he hears from the Lord. Jesus the Messiah, a member of the Triune God, was sent to earth to give voice to the Father’s commands to his children. As the incarnate Son of God, his disciples were to listen to his words. Prophetic words are both stern and compassionate; they are truth and life. What are the words of life and love that you need to hear today? If you hear his voice in the Scriptures, prayer, and in the still small voice, will you choose to listen and obey?
Throughout this holy season, may you and yours…Behold the fulfilled promises of Almighty God ~ Believe the Gospel proclamation of Good News in the incarnate Jesus ~ Belong to those who anticipate the coming Messiah with joyful celebration ~ Become a faithful disciple who waits, watches, and wonders with Spirit-filled anticipation once more!
