Prophecy Thread of Week 33

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary Definition of Truth:
Conformity to fact or reality; exact accordance with that which is, or has been, or shall be. The truth of history constitutes its whole value. We rely on the truth of the scriptural prophecies.

MESSIAH BIRTHED BY A VIRGIN

This prophecy displays the miraculous power of God. Without God’s intervention Jesus could not have been conceived. It was predicted over 700 years before the event occurred. It is also necessary for Jesus to be free from the sinful nature of humanity to be given as a sinless sacrifice acceptable to God for all of humanity (Heb 4:15). This is the true celebration of Christmas today.
