We usually read the Christmas story from Luke 2:1-20, but this three-part series takes us eight days after the manger (Luke 2:25-35). It is the day that Mary and Joseph take baby Jesus to Jerusalem to be circumcised. But because this is a prophetic birth, they are about to encounter a powerful prophetic word. We love prophetic words, but not all prophetic words are positive - and almost none of them are fulfilled immediately. Sometimes, the Word that God has given to you will test you before it blesses you! Jesus has been born to die, to rise, and to reign … and because we serve Him, our lives must follow the same prophetic pattern. This series with Raymond Woodward was recorded in December 2014.
