Not Here...Yet   Sunday, December 4, 2016

Christmas is coming but it's not here yet.  Gotta wait.  It won't be long.  At least I know what I'm talking about.


Probably not the case with Balaam.  He and Balak where chillin' up the hill looking at the Israelites camp.  All of a sudden, Balaam says, "I see him but not now, I behold him but not near".  Since God was using him to speak prophecy, he probably didn't have a clue what he was saying.


They were looking at the camp.  It was set up in a certain way.  Though he probably didn't understand, He was speaking of Jesus.  He goes on to prophecy about a star.  (The one the wise men followed).  But who was "he"?


If you google the camp of the Israelites you can see for yourself.  The camp was set up as God told them to.  And at night, they would light up their banners with torches.


THEY WERE LOOKING AT THE SHAPE OF A CROSS!  Yes, a cross, 1400 years before crucifixion was invented.  They saw Jesus...but He wasn't there yet.  How cool!


God's Word is true.  The prophecies of Jesus alone prove that.  And if it is true, how then should we live.


This Christmas, realize not just "the true meaning of Christmas", but the true impact of Christmas.  Let Christmas, and Jesus impact your life!
