22. Prophecies Fulfilled Part 8

Over the last few studies in our Christmas series, we saw together some things predicted in history concerning the birth, life, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ. Predictions made about Him before He was born. We only looked at a few of the 300 events predicted. Let’s look at these in summary together:
The Messiah would be born of a woman - born of a virgin - in the town of Bethlehem. The Messiah would come from the line of Abraham and be a descendant of Isaac & Jacob - from the tribe of Judah and be an heir to King David's throne.
This Messiah's throne will be anointed and eternal and his name would be Immanuel. This Messiah would spend a period of time away in Egypt. At the Messiah’s birthplace there would be a grand massacre of children.
There would be a messenger sent who would prepare the way for the Messiah who would be rejected by his own people.
The Messiah would be a prophet, preceded by Elijah and this Messiah would be declared the Son of God.
This Messiah would be a Nazarene and bring light to Galilee. He would do this by speaking in parables and healing the broken hearted.
This Messiah would be a priest after the order of Melchizedek, be called King yet also praised by little children.

This Messiah would be betrayed for a sum of money which would be used to buy a potter's field.
This Messiah would be falsely accused, He would be silent before his accusers who would spit upon and strike him.
This Messiah would be hated without cause and be crucified with criminals.
This Messiah would be given vinegar to drink, have his hands and feet pierced, be mocked and ridiculed and soldiers would gamble for His very clothes. Yet despite all this, this Messiah would pray for his enemies. This Messiah’s bones would not be broken but He would be forsaken by God Himself. Soldiers would pierce Messiah's side on His death and he would be buried with the rich. But there is more!

This Messiah would rise from the dead and into new life! WOW! This Messiah would ascend to heaven where He would be seated at God's right hand. This Messiah would be a sacrifice for sin before God and therefore anybody can take on this Messiah as their Saviour and be restored back into a living and dynamic relationship with God.
If you are not already in a relationship with God through Jesus Christ, there is no need to delay! If you want to turn to God there is no need for delay. You are separated from God now, but there is no need to be. God is ready and willing to take you as His own right now. Just ask and He will take you in and help you.

15. Prophecies Fulfilled Part 1

That first Christmas, almost 2,000 years ago, is the time when the invisible becomes visible. When God who is outside of time and space, entered time and space. This Almighty God becomes a weakened baby, in what we call the incarnation. Almighty God has become one of his created beings – a helpless human.

Over the next few days, as we conclude our Christmas series, we are looking at some of the words given as prophecy in what we call the Old Testament and how they were fulfilled in the New Testament. Some of those things could have been fulfilled by deliberate human intervention (or even Jesus Himself). But certainly not all of them We will look at how the birth, life, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ was fulfilment of words and promises spoken about down through the ages – through countless years as people looked to God to rescue them.

John 3:16 sums this up well “For this is how God loved the world: He sent his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.”

The Apostle Paul said something similar in Romans 8:3 “So God did what the law could not do. He sent his own Son in a body like the bodies we sinners have. And in that body God declared an end to sin’s control over us by giving his Son as a sacrifice for our sins.”

1. Prophecies concerning Jesus’ parents.

a. Prediction: Messiah would be born of a woman
Predicted: Genesis 3:15
Fulfilled: Matthew 1:20 & Galatians 4:4-5

b. Prediction: Messiah would be born of a virgin
Predicted: Isaiah 7:14
Fulfilled: Matthew 1:22-23 & Luke 1:30-31

c. Prediction: Messiah would be born in Bethlehem
Predicted: Micah 5:2
Fulfilled: Matthew 2:1 & Luke 2:4-7

Christmas 2020

14. A Christmas sermon of Martin Luther (1483 – 1546)

Today we continue our Christmas series with a Christmas sermon of Martin Luther.

the angel said to the shepherds, “Don't be afraid! I am here with good news for you, which will bring great joy to all the people. This very day in David's town your Saviour was born—Christ the Lord! And this is what will prove it to you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
Suddenly a great army of heaven's angels appeared with the angel, singing praises to God:
“Glory to God in the highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom he is pleased!” (Luke 2:10-14 Good News Translation)

You have heard today the story from the Gospel of St. Luke 2:10-14 of how it came to pass that our Lord Christ was born and then also the message of the angel, who announced who the boy was who was born. Now we shall go on and take up the message of the angel. So for today you have heard only that the child was born and that he is the Lord and Saviour. Thus we spoke of the story, how it unfolded, and who the persons in it were.

This article is so high that even today it is believed by only a few. Nevertheless, God has preserved it even through those who have not believed it. For at all times in the monasteries and universities there have been disputations and lectures which dealt with the fact that Christ the Lord, born of Mary, is true man and God.

Today we continue our Christmas series with a Nativity Sermon By Isaac the Syrian.

This Christmas night bestowed peace on the whole world;
So let no one threaten;
This is the night of the Most Gentle One - Let no one be cruel;
This is the night of the Humble One - Let no one be proud.
Now is the day of joy - Let us not revenge;
Now is the day of Good Will - Let us not be mean.
In this Day of Peace - Let us not be conquered by anger.

Today the Bountiful impoverished Himself for our sake;
So, rich one, invite the poor to your table.
Today we receive a Gift for which we did not ask;
So let us give alms to those who implore and beg us.
This present Day cast open the heavenly doors to our prayers;
Let us open our door to those who ask our forgiveness.
Today the Divine Being took upon Himself the seal of our humanity,
In order for humanity to be decorated by the Seal of Divinity.
