What do the prophecies about Christ point to? Among the many in the Old Testament, our focus in this message will be on three. There is the promise of a redeemer. There is the promise of a relationship. There is the promise of a ruler. The Old Testament looks forward to that point of time in which the Messiah will come to seek and save the lost. He is Immanuel – God with us. Prophecy also points to a second coming of the Messiah. The prophecies of the Old Testament are wrapped up in the one who was swaddled in strips of cloth, whose birth we celebrate this time of year, the Messiah, Jesus Christ the Lord.
