Did you know that Christmas is a great time for you to teach your children about prophecy? Hopefully they are well aware of why we celebrate Christmas and why exactly it should be “the happiest time of the year”. But don’t forget to include a great lesson on the power of prophecy. Isaiah prophesied the following hundreds of years prior to the birth of Jesus.
Isaiah 7:14 says “Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign; Behold the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son and shall call His name Immanuel.”
Isaiah 9:6 “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father Prince of Peace.”
Begin to prophecy over your children what God has shown to you in your heart. Pray with the Spirit and with the understanding. When you speak forth these words of life over your child it releases His word to go out… and come back accomplished as a fulfilled prophesy.
Isaiah 55:11 “So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall accomplish what I please and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.”
Matt 1:23, Luke 1:31, John 1:45, Rev 12:5, Luke 2:7, 11, John 3:16, 1 John 4:9
Have a very blessed Thanksgiving and Christmas!
