It is amazing to see the undeniable correlation between the fact of Jesus’ birth and the utterances made by many persons centuries before his birth (2 Samuel 7:1-5,8-12,14,16; Luke 1:26-38). This is what the Apostle refers to as “the revelation of a mystery kept secret for endless ages, but now so clear ” (Romans 16:25-26).
Research has established that the time between the prophesies of old and the Christ event is so wide – some 4000 years from the book of Genesis and the birth of Jesus. Hence, we cannot but believe that the Jesus event is true, and worthy of belief. Consequently, our response should be that of the Apostle Paul, “it must be broadcast to pagans everywhere to bring them to the obedience of faith.” (Romans 16:26).
To do this, we must have to witness with our own lives to Jesus’ life giving message of salvation.
