How it Happened

Talk about God answering prayer. Listen to this!

“The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your countrymen; to him you shall listenThis is in accordance with everything that you asked of the Lord your God at Horeb on the day of the assembly, saying, ‘Do not let me hear the voice of the Lord my God again, and do not let me see this great fire anymore, or I will die!’ 

God sent them Jesus

“And the Lord said to me, ‘They have spoken well. I will raise up for them a prophet from among their countrymen like you, and I will put My words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them everything that I command him. And it shall come about that whoever does not listen to My words which he speaks in My name, I Myself will require it of him.” (Deuteronomy 18: 15-19 NASB)

Better the Son of God’s voice now than a requiring fire later.

“For a Child will be born to us, a Son will be given to us;
And the government will rest on His shoulders;
And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.”
(Isaiah 9:6 NASB)

Those who really desire to know God and hear His voice listen to Jesus. Anyone who thinks there is another way is fooling themselves, or being lied to. God made a way for us to know Him on that first Christmas morn.
