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!
Did you know that the prophets Daniel and Isaiah were also able to tell people when Jesus would be born? How did they know? That’s right, because God told them. Let’s read those prophesies in the bible:
Now listen and understand! Seven sets of seven plus sixty-two sets of seven will pass from the time the command is given to rebuild Jerusalem until a ruler - the Anointed One - comes. Jerusalem will be rebuilt with streets and strong defenses, despite the perilous times. Daniel 9:25
… She will give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel (which means ‘God is with us’). By the time this child is old enough to choose what is right and reject what is wrong, he will be eating yogurt and honey. For before the child is that old, the lands of the two kings you fear so much will both be deserted. Isaiah 7:14-16
Do you know what will happen tomorrow? (No) Neither do I!! That’s why prophesy is so amazing! It’s telling the future and only God knows about that.
(Optional: make funny predictions about the future)
