Pastor Helms went through the ""Prophecies, Promises, and Proclamations Regarding the Birth of Jesus". He highlighted the proclamation of Jacob in Genesis 49:10 where God promised Judah a place in His plan. He went on to discuss what David did during his time as King of Israel, including Nathan's promise to David of an Eternal Kingdom (2 Samuel 7:12-13). He next went through the prophecies of Isaiah who in Isaiah 7:14 told of the "Virgin Birth", the prophet Micah in Micah 5:2 told that the Christ would be born in Bethlehem, of Hosea who in Hosea 11:1 told that the Messiah would end up in Egypt, and of Malachi who in Malachi 3:1 told about a messenger. Then after 400 more years... God Moves! John the Baptist is born to prepare the way and Jesus is born and shows up at the temple. Pastor Helms concluded the message by saying
"The Lord of Hosts Declared It"
"The Messenger of the Covenant Has Come"
We Celebrate His Birth"
His Name is Jesus- Christ, the Messiah"
He is Our Savior and Redeemer"
