Christmas Thought #1 — The Prophecy

Christmas Thought #1: In Genesis 3:15 we find the first prophecy in the Bible as well as the first evangelistic message. It is the first prophecy of the coming Messiah who would be born of a woman, not of a man, revealing that special birth, a divine birth that would bring us the Savior. He would crush the head of Satan destroying the power of sin and setting humanity free from the curse of the law.

When you receive Christ today in your heart, your receive not the baby born in the manager, but the victorious Christ, the risen Son of God who defeated Satan, Sin and Sorrow whe he died on the cross. In Christ you have a power in you that enables you to live your life for God and others.

We find the fulfillment of Genesis 3:15 highlighted in Galatians 4:4-5, “But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship.”

Pray for God to help you use the power of Christ to live the victorious life that is pleasing to Him.
