Christmas 2010 – Jesus B.C. 4. Born of a Virgin

Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23 Christmas is an amazing time of year. We Christians ought to enjoy Christmas more than anyone. Remember, it was our holiday first! Christmas is the first great miracle of the Christian faith - the Virgin Birth of Jesus Christ. It is taken for granted in our circles, yet from the very beginning there have been the doubters. One Short Step It’s only a short step from denying the Virgin Birth to denying the deity of Jesus Christ. First you attack the birth, then you attack the baby. First the miracle, then the man. Once you deny his miraculous entrance into this world, it’s short work to deny his deity, or that he ever existed at all. That’s the ultimate goal of li

Christmas 2010 - Jesus B.C. 2. Lamb of God

Exodus 12; John 1: 29 Christians everywhere recognize the lamb as a familiar biblical image. It is often connected with both Christmas and Easter. Though lambs aren’t specifically mentioned in the Christmas story, they are implied by the presence of shepherds and also by the fact that Jesus was born in a stable. The Bible makes the connection between Jesus and lambs in several passages. Isaiah 53 compares the Messiah to a lamb going to be slaughtered. John the Baptist called Jesus the “Lamb of God.” Paul called Christ the “Passover Lamb.” Peter spoke of Christ’s blood as the blood of a lamb. The book of Revelation explicitly calls Christ “the Lamb” 30 times. Our emotional connotations for

Christmas 2010 – Jesus B.C. 1. Seed of the Woman

Genesis 3: 15 This is the first promise given after the Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden. It is also the first gospel sermon ever preached. As the acorn contains the mighty oak, so these words contain the entire plan of salvation. Although you may not see it at first glance, Christ is in this verse. He is the ultimate Seed of the Woman who would one day come to crush the serpent’s ugly head. In the process his “heel” would be bruised on the cross. This verse predicts that Jesus would win the victory over the Satan but would himself be wounded as the same time. These words would be fulfilled at Calvary outside the city wall of Jerusalem. But all of that was in the

Fear God and Nothing Else! 5. God's Glory Revealed

Haggai 2: 6 – 9 How big is God? How great is His glory? Just the thought of it is enough to boggle the mind. Psalm 19:1 - "How big is God?" Considering the vastness of His universe, the universe He created, how big would God have to be to create all of this which my eyes can see? It was more than my mind could imagine. What little my human eyes could see that night was enough to convince me that God was beyond my comprehension. And I only could see a very small fraction of the cosmos. Our universe is vast indeed. Our sun is one of its stars. The sun is so huge that if it were hollow, more than one million earths would fit inside. Yet, it is one of the smaller stars in our galaxy. There ar

Fear God and Nothing Else! 4. The Shaking of the Nations

Haggai 2: 20 - 23 All of us need some special encouragement from time to time. It may be that you need encouragement to stay in school, or to stay on the job, or just to get out of bed in the morning. Maybe you’re facing the surgeon’s knife and you fear what the future may hold. Perhaps you are struggling right now and feel like giving up. I’m sure many of you find it hard just to get up, get dressed, and go to work 5 or 6 days a week. Some of you have come to a crossroads in life and don’t know which road to take. You face the great question: What will I do with the rest of my life? You’re excited but also a little nervous as you think about the future. Deep inside you truly want to do God
