SERIES: Against All Odds
MESSAGE: Learning to Tell Time
SPEAKER: Skip Heitzig
SCRIPTURE: Galatians 4:3-5; Genesis 49

We have been examining the amazing prophecies of the Old Testament and how Jesus Christ has fulfilled them. The prophets predicted His lineage, extraordinary birth, places of His residence, and character of His ministry. But why did Jesus come at the time that He did? Why not earlier? Why not later? Were there any indicators that pointed to His timely entrance into the world? Let me suggest there were five things that were just right.


  1. The Expectation Was Right: “We…were in bondage”

  2. The Season Was Right: “When the fullness of the time had come”

  3. The Action Was Right: “God sent forth His Son”

  4. The Person Was Right: “Born of a woman, born under the law”

  5. The Reason Was Right: “To redeem”

Topic: Prophecy

Keywords: prophecy, Shiloh, Judah, Judaism, Jesus Christ, bondage, slavery, anticipation, faith, synagogue, virgin birth, the Law, redeem, redemption, preexistence, God's timing
