Advent Week Two: A Season of Peace. God’s Prophecies are Being Fulfilled!

If you are a Christian, the Spirit of God is living in you. You have been anointed and appointed by the Spirit to declare the praises of God. The world requires us to be bold prophets who would speak of God’s truth, hope, love, and grace. With whom will you invite into the Presence of God to share the truth of Jesus today?

2 Peter 1:16-21 ESV

Christ’s Glory and the Prophetic Word

16 For we did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. 17 For when he received honor and glory from God the Father, and the voice was borne to him by the Majestic Glory, “This is my beloved Son,[a] with whom I am well pleased,” 18 we ourselves heard this very voice borne from heaven, for we were with him on the holy mountain. 19 And we have the prophetic word more fully confirmed, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, 20 knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone’s own interpretation. 21 For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

The Word of God for the Children of God. In Excelsis Deo! Alleluia! Amen.

God has spoken to man through the holy Scriptures and His Word endures forever. God has spoken to us through men who have been called to speak to man. The Bible is the singular, unchanging and non-negotiable plumbline for truth, and it was holy men of God who were moved by the Holy Spirit in bygone days, who were entrusted to record the sacred; inerrant; God-breathed text.

The Holy Scriptures were not devised by the whimsical impulses of men, nor were they manufactured from their own creative imagination, but God in His sovereignty chose certain individuals, whom He called to be His Prophets, to be the human authors of His divinely inspired message of hope unto all mankind.

God chose shepherds and kings; fishermen and farmers; tax-collectors and priests… a physician and a Pharisee; old men and youths – and He moved them to record the sacred text. He embraced their interests and intellect; and their learning or lack of it; their experiences and individuality – their penmanship and their writing style to shine through in the inspired text, which they were moved to record. And yet God in a supernatural way directed their heart to inscribe the very Word of God, down to the final jot and the smallest tittle.

More that forty human writers over centuries of time were moved by the Holy Spirit of God to bring His sure Word of truth to a lost and dying world. Although their characters and interests were reflected in their own, individual scrolls, the verbal inspiration of the celestial Scripture shines though. as a shining light in a darkened world. And the Spirit-inspired Word of God became a window into the heart of our Creator, so man could be saved by grace through faith in Christ.

These selected prophecies are only but a few of the over 350 prophecies about Jesus Christ, our Lord. These prophesies are fulfilled directly by the birth, life, crucifixion, resurrection and ascension of Jesus. Please take time to read them. Please take the time to study them, meditate and pray over them with friends. Maybe in this season of Advent, you might take time to be with a stranger too. You might take some time to be with your churched, unchurched neighbors too.
