Which candle are we lighting this week and what does it symbolize? Yes, the Prophesy candle symbolizing the hope for Jesus that the prophesies brought!
The prophets told the people several interesting details about Jesus' birth and then it happened just like God said! They said Jesus would born of a virgin and that the 3 kings would come visit. Let’s read those prophesies in the bible:
The western kings of Tarshish and other distant lands will bring him tribute. The eastern kings of Sheba and Seba will bring him gifts. Psalms 72:10
All right then, the Lord himself will give you the sign. Look! The virgin[f] will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel (which means ‘God is with us’). Isaiah 7:14
It’s fun to look through your baby pictures and hear details about how you were born, isn’t it? Wouldn’t it be amazing if someone was able to tell you all about it before it happened and then it happened exactly that way?
