Throughout history, God has provided us with a roadmap to the Savior of the world. In the Old Testament there are over 300 prophecies that were fulfilled in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. These prophecies were made hundreds of years BEFORE Jesus’s birth! Mathematically speaking, the odds of anyone fulfilling this many prophecies are staggering. Mathematicians state that there is 1 chance in 10 to the 157th power (that is 157 zeros) that one person could fulfill 300+ prophecies. Yet Jesus was the fulfillment of every single one! God had planned throughout all of history to rescue His creation with a level of love and sacrifice never before seen.
More than 700 years prior to the birth of Jesus these words were written:
“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore” (Isaiah 7:6-7).
How comforting it is to know that from the beginning of time God had a plan for humanity! This plan involved a never-before-seen love and the sacrifice of a perfect Savior. This is the kind of love we can only experience when we personally know this Savior--Jesus Christ, our Lord.
If God planned for His son to be the Savior of the world since the beginning of time, then you can rest secure knowing that He has a plan for your life as well. If you will but trust your life and your path to a loving God, He will direct that path with “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you a hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11).
There is no better time than Christmas to recognize and receive the greatest gift in all of history--Jesus, our Savior!
