When Isaiah promised the birth of a savior for the people of Israel, they didn’t know how long it would take to get the gift which was revealed in Jesus. Like a child waiting for Christmas morning, the believer can be confident that in due time, what God gives will not disappoint.

Notes:

1. The Prophet Micah revealed: But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, are only a small village among all the people of Judah. Yet a ruler of Israel whose origins are in the distant past, will come from you on my behalf. –Micah 5:2 (NLT)

2. A prophet named Isaiah also prophesied about this future king: 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 (NLT)

3. He will be so influential that: The western kings of Tarshish and other distant lands will bring him tribute. The eastern kings of Sheba and Seba will bring him gifts. 11 All kings will bow before him, and all nations will serve him. –Psalm 72:10-11 (NLT)

4. Isaiah prophesied: Nevertheless, that time of darkness and despair will not go on forever. The land of Zebulun and Naphtali will be humbled, but there will be a time in the future when Galilee of the Gentiles... will be filled with glory. –Isaiah 9:1 (NLT)

5. Yet it was in Galilee that Isaiah said: 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 Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever.–Isaiah 9:6-7 (NIV)

6. But even more, when the King comes: And when he comes, he will open the eyes of the blind and unplug the ears of the deaf. 6 The lame will leap like a deer, and those who cannot speak will sing for joy! --Isaiah 35:5-6 (NLT)

7. He was despised and rejected— a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief. –Isaiah 53:3 (NLT)

8. He said: My enemies surround me like a pack of dogs; an evil gang closes in on me. They have pierced my hands and feet. 17 I can count all my bones (none are broken). My enemies stare at me and gloat. They divide my garments among themselves and throw dice for my clothing. –Psalm 22:16-18 (NLT)

9. Zechariah uses similar imagery describing what Messiah will be like when he is killed: “Then I will pour out a spirit of grace and prayer on the family of David and on the people of Jerusalem. They will look on me whom they have pierced and mourn for him as for an only son.–Zech 12:10 (NLT)

10. But many were amazed when they saw him. His face was so disfigured he seemed hardly human, and from his appearance, one would scarcely know he was a man. –Isaiah 52:14 (NLT)

11. But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed. 6 All of us, like sheep, have strayed away. We have left God’s paths to follow our own. Yet the LORD laid on him the sins of us all. –Isaiah 53:5 (NLT)

12. He had done no wrong and had never deceived anyone. But he was buried like a criminal; he was put in a rich man’s grave. –Isaiah 53:9 (NLT)
