The Holy Spirit in the Christmas Story

Dec 25, 2022    Pastor Tom Arnould

What I’d like to talk to you about today is the person of the Holy Spirit and how he interfaces with the Christmas Story. Wednesday night we spent studying the angelic activities that took place around the Christmas story, and as I was praying I felt it would be fitting to speak today on Christmas Day on what the Holy Spirit’s role in Christmas was. There were 400 years of silence and darkness that occurred between the writing of Malachi in the Old Testament and the birth of Jesus. However, the Holy Spirit was still at work in this time, helping bring about the events necessary for Jesus’ birth. From the Messianic prophecies in the Old Testament to the birth of Jesus, the Holy Spirit played a central role that I will speak in depth on today as you join me.
