As Christmas approaches, we must take some time to consider the miracle of Christ’s birth, arguably the single most important event in human history. A miracle is an extraordinary phenomenon that the human mind cannot explain. For example, a person born blind suddenly gaining sight without any medical intervention. Without a human explanation, such an event would be a miracle. The Nativity celebrates the miraculous incarnation of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God. Orthodox Christians spend forty days in preparation for this wonderous feast and celebrate it for two whole weeks!
Therefore, the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. – Isaiah 7:14
The Biblical Prophet Isaiah foretold of this miracle of the coming of the Lord and Savior. The birth of the Savior was hoped, prayed, and planned for. Jesus Christ, the Logos, the Living Word of God is constantly revealed to us in the Bible. Again and again, the Bible prophesizes the coming of the Lord. The Old Testament was written some 400 years before the New Testament and yet Christ is continually prophesized and unveiled. This time between the Old and New Testament is called the “400 years of silence” during which there were no other prophets. Christ came at exactly the right time to complete his mission.
Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. – Daniel 9:25
