The Birth of the Messiah

Title: The Birth of the Messiah

Scripture: Revelation 12:5-6 (NIV) – She gave birth to a son, a male child, who “will rule all the nations with an iron scepter.” And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne. The woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.


We are all familiar with the story of the birth of Jesus, the Messiah, as told in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke. However, the book of Revelation also presents a powerful depiction of the birth of the Messiah. Today, we will explore this unique perspective of the birth of Christ and reflect on the significance of this event in the grand narrative of God’s plan for salvation.

The Birth of the Messiah in Revelation 12:5-6:
In these verses, John describes a great sign in heaven—a woman, representing the people of God, giving birth to a male child, who will rule all the nations and be caught up to God and his throne. This imagery reflects the birth, ascension, and exaltation of Jesus Christ, the promised Savior and King.

Significance of the Birth of Christ:
The birth of Christ fulfills the prophecies of the Old Testament and marks the beginning of God’s redemptive work in the world. Jesus, the male child, came to rule with authority and power, bringing salvation to all who believe in him. His birth is a testament to God’s faithfulness and love for humanity, as he sent his Son to dwell among us and ultimately offer himself as a perfect sacrifice for our sins.

As seniors, we have witnessed and experienced the transforming power of Christ in our lives. The birth of the Messiah is a reminder of God’s enduring promise to provide a Savior for us and the entire world. Just as the woman in Revelation was cared for by God in the wilderness, we can take comfort in knowing that God has prepared a place for us and will sustain us through all circumstances.

The birth of the Messiah is a profound and awe-inspiring event in the history of humanity. It serves as a beacon of hope and redemption for all generations, and it is a reminder of God’s unfailing love and faithfulness. As we celebrate the birth of Christ, may we reflect on the significance of this miraculous event and continue to share the message of hope and salvation with others. Amen.
