Christmas [Sermon Note]
Anything is possible because of our Lord
During Christmas, Jesus is above it all!
He is the One who has been watching over you. He wants to come into your life. To touch broken areas and restore you to wholeness and health.
God made Adam and Eve and never made men to be sick and grow old and die. Men sin against God and sin brought all these things.
God incarnate in flesh.
Do you find yourself oppressed?
You are depressed and you know your mind goes into darkness and you always feel discouraged
Love has come down. His name is Jesus.
The Son of the Father real in your life
Christ Born of Mary
And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This census first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria. So all went to be registered, everyone to his own city.
Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife, who was with child. So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.
God moved in Rome to move the carpenter and his wife
How God moved in Rome just to move Joseph and Mary
Down through history there are stories of kings went into poverty.
When Jesus comes into your life, get ready for uplifting
The Lord is my shepherd, i shall not lack.
Prophet prophesied that the baby will be born in Bethlehem
The Coming Messiah
“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah,
Though you are little among the thousands of Judah,
Yet out of you shall come forth to Me
The One to be Ruler in Israel,
Whose goings forth are from of old,
For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
She brought forth her Son
Ruth was not a Jews. From her came the royal son. From David came Jesus Christ.
Jesus has to be among our family to be our Redeemer. To redeem us out of our bondage and all that we have forfeited.
Healing is redeeming what was lost.
All power is given unto Me and on earth
Love people and use money to bless them
Man has sin and sin has brought in diseases and finally death. God did not plan for men to sin
There is no substitute for human intelligence
God gave men free choice.
The earth is tilted to contain so that there is no flood
Adam did not die physically. He died spiritually.
Adam lived to nearly a thousand year!
A thousand year to God is like one day
God is outside time
You cannot choose the result of your choice.
If you can see things in perspective, you will not see this world as perfect world
Everyone dies but it is not God’s plan for men to die. The wages of sin is death.
Jesus said for God so loved the world, God so loved you!
How can God receive sinful men?
If you enter heaven right now without born again, you will feel terrible because heaven is perfect
Mary and Joseph has the rights in the inn. But there was no room for them in the inn.
They did not fight it.
Jesus chose to be a child to come from the very beginning of human being.
He came as a Child.
Every stage you are at, Jesus understands you.
Jesus came as a Child. To seat where we seat.
He chose to be born not at the guest house.
Among the stable which was a cave nearby, Jesus was born
Heaven of heavens cannot contain him
He came to be the Bread of Life
Try to follow His teachings cannot save us. Is His death at the cross that saves us
Son of God
Son of the Highest
Son of Abraham
Son of David – royally
He is the Son of God eternally
Son of the Highest – Relationship
Son of Mary – miraculously
Son of Joseph – legally
Unto us a Son is given
For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.
All things are made by Christ.
All things are created through Him and for Him
He holds all creation together
This is lovely humanity
Come and worship Him
We bow before this Beauty
Put Christ in the centre. When the centre is wrong, nothing falls in place. When Christ is the centre, everything falls in place.
Perfect peace – shalom shalom
To God that is perfect peace.
Complete on the outside and inside
Live your life in shalom. Find the Son of God real in your life today.
Look up to the sky, He is coming back for us.
He will come again. He comes again to be Ruler of all.
He then would have had to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now, once at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.
A body that can live forever! Forever young, strong!
Put Jesus in the centre of your life!
