A prophetic Christmas

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: the virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel. Isaiah 7:14

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

These words were written over 500 years before Jesus was born. Isaiah was a prophet. This guys saw stuff. And those days must have been so exciting. Prophets were taken very seriously and when they spoke, people received the words as coming from God and then referred back to those words with anticipation and expectation. Amos expressed his own confidence in the prophetic when he declared in Amos 3:7 – “Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets.”

The birth of Jesus was foreseen and foretold centuries prior. This was to be a momentous occasion, one very significant in the plans and purposes of God and it was only fitting that it be drenched in the prophetic for the purposes of God showing himself to be a powerful and omnipresent God whose plans can not be thwarted, but also for the purposes of building up the faith of men and giving them the expectancy for God to do something wonderful!

Have we lost that prophetic edge today? Have we watered down the voice of God? Are we too occupied with our daily affairs that there is no room for God to speak and declare great things to his people? Will we believe God that this Christmas, he could re-ignite in our hearts that desire for the voice of God to speak loud and clear to us? Let us believe God to re-establish a culture of prophecy among his people. If God is still God today, then he still speaks today, as he did centuries ago. Let this be the Christmas that God’s voice was heard and re-established among his people. Let us believe God for that together.
