Scripture does not merely suggest that Jesus is Messiah, it proves it! If people were going to have hope that would endure 1300 years of disaster, wars, ruin, poverty and exile...the Lord would surely need to make the promise clear. (I have added a link below that I used for today's sermon so that you could study Old Testament scripture that foretold the Messiah's arrival. God made it crystal clear!!
What actions are you taking to keep the Lord's promises to you in front of you?
Do you expect to have hope if you don't nurture it in your heart?
What can you do when hope seems to be fading from your heart?
