Prophecies related to Christmas and birth of Jesus

Post  Waqar Daniel on Sat 22 Dec 2007, 3:54 pm

And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her Offspring; He will bruise and tread your head underfoot, and you will lie in wait and bruise His heel. (Genesis 3:15)

The scepter or leadership shall not depart from Judah, nor the ruler's staff from between his feet, until Shiloh [the Messiah, the Peaceful One] comes to Whom it belongs, and to Him shall be the obedience of the people. (Genesis 49:10)

The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet (Prophet) from the midst of your brethren like me [Moses]; to him you shall listen.
This is what you desired [and asked] of the Lord your God at Horeb on the day of the assembly when you said, Let me not hear again the voice of the Lord my God or see this great fire any more, lest I die.
And the Lord said to me, They have well said all that they have spoken.
I will raise up for them a prophet (Prophet) from among their brethren like you, and will put My words in his mouth; and he shall speak to them all that I command him.
And whoever will not hearken to My words which he shall speak in My name, I Myself will require it of him.
(Deuteronomy 18:15-19)

He also said, Blessed be the Lord, the God of Shem! And blessed by the Lord my God be Shem! And let Canaan be his servant. (Genesis 9:26)

And I will bless those who bless you [who confer prosperity or happiness upon you] and curse him who curses or uses insolent language toward you; in you will all the families and kindred of the earth be blessed [and by you they will bless themselves]. (Genesis 12:3)

But My covenant, My promise and pledge, I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah will bear to you at this season next year. (Genesis 17:21)

And your offspring shall be as [countless as] the dust or sand of the ground, and you shall spread abroad to the west and the east and the north and the south; and by you and your Offspring shall all the families of the earth be blessed and bless themselves. (Genesis 28:14)

Judah, you are the one whom your brothers shall praise; your hand shall be on the neck of your enemies; your father's sons shall bow down to you. (Genesis 49:8)

AND THERE shall come forth a Shoot out of the stock of Jesse [David's father], and a Branch out of his roots shall grow and bear fruit. (Genesis Isaiah 11:1)

Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will raise up to David a righteous Branch (Sprout), and He will reign as King and do wisely and will execute justice and righteousness in the land. (Jeremiah 23:5)

Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign: Behold, the young woman who is unmarried and a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel [God with us]. (Isaiah 7:14)

But you, Bethlehem Ephratah, you are little to be among the clans of Judah; [yet] out of you shall One come forth for Me Who is to be Ruler in Israel, Whose goings forth have been from of old, from ancient days (eternity). (Micah 5:2)

The kings of Tarshish and of the coasts shall bring offerings; the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.
Yes, all kings shall fall down before Him, all nations shall serve Him (Psalm 72:10-11)

Thus says the Lord: A voice is heard in Ramah, lamentation and bitter weeping. Rachel is weeping for her children; she refuses to be comforted for her children, because they are no more. (Jeremiah 31:15)

WHEN ISRAEL was a child, then I loved him and called My son out of Egypt. (Hosea 11:1)

All references are taken from Amplified Version of the Bible.

"That night some shepherds were in the fields outside the village, guarding their flocks of sheep. Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord's glory surrounded them. They were terribly frightened, but the angel reassured them. 'Don't be afraid!' he said. 'I bring you good news of great joy for everyone! The Savior -- yes, the Messiah, the Lord -- has been born tonight in Bethlehem, the city of David! And this is how you will recognize him: You will find a baby lying in a manger, wrapped snugly in strips of cloth!' " -- Luke 2:8-12 NLT

What do angels, a baby, a star, three kings and shepherds have in common? They are all images we associate with one of the most exciting holidays, Christmas. This is the day we celebrate the arrival of God's Son on the earth. He entered the world, not as a mighty king as expected, but as a little baby born in a stable. The Word had become flesh and would dwell among us. Since that day, The world has never been the same.[/size]

Advent - (12/2-12/24) Preparation for Christ's arrival.
Christmas Eve - (12/24) The Night Before Christmas.
Christmas Day - (12/25) Celebration of the birth of Jesus.
The Twelve Days of Christmas - (12/25-1/5) Twelve days starting Christmas night until the day before Epiphany.

Epiphany - (1/6) Also known as Three Kings' Day celebrates the visit of the Magi.
