We Praise God for A Saviour, we thank Him for a Redeemer. The songwriter penned the words, ‘’Joy to the world the Lord is come, let earth received her King”. We should be joyful for this King, as we go through this season, let it be a season of thanksgiving and praise. Matthew 1:18-20 tells us of The Miraculous birth of Christ our Savior. Mary was espoused to Joseph, but before they came together in marriage she was found to be with child of The Holy Ghost. Joseph had nothing to do with the conception of Jesus. Jesus had no human father. His body was conceived entirely by the Holy Spirit of God. Verse 21 says, ‘’ She shall bring forth a Son and thou shalt call his name Jesus, for He shall save His people from their sins’’. This was the great purpose of His coming, to save His people from their sins, from the power and presence and guilt and condemnation of sin. Now all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet. Jesus Christ fulfilled everything said in the Old Testament scriptures relative to the Messiah coming into the world. This fulfilment thereby proved that He is the Messiah promised in Old Testament time….. Praise God for His coming!
It is sad that after all these years many people still do not believe in Him. One reason I believe in the bible is that it makes predictions, many of which have already been fulfilled. God gives to all of us the intelligence to lay hold of the truth. We are to use the mind God gives us, and we are to believe that only God can predict the future in detail, which He does over and over again in the Old Testament and in the New. How different it is when we come to this Bible as the word of the Living God and accept it, and believe what it says about the Lord Jesus Christ. I want to go on record today as saying, with all my soul, with every fiber of my being, that after studying this bible for these many years, I am more convinced today than before that the bible is the word of God because of the prophecies that have been fulfilled and that will be fulfilled. I am also fully convinced that Jesus Christ is the Son of The Living God, the sinless Son of God, the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world, and He is the only Hope that any human being has for the forgiveness of sins. I am simply saying that My faith is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
We found that He is a Savior, He is Messiah, He is the Son of David, and the Son of Abraham. He had a miraculous, spotless conception with no earthly father involved. He came to save His people from their sins. We will find peace reading the Holy Scriptures. We must know for sure, what to believe. Our Faith must be based on perfect knowledge. When we know that the Bible is the Word of God, we can rest, we can have peace. This fulfilled prophecy testifies to the inspiration of the word of God. Man may try to predict the future, but his guesses may or may not come true. The Scripture never guess. Whenever they predict, there is fulfilment. Hallelujah!! There is a great body of predictions that have already been fulfilled. I pray that every heart will prepare Him room this Holiday season, knowing that He is Our Savior, knowing that He wasn’t sent to earth to condemn us but to have eternal life. O What a Wonderful Savior! I Love the song ‘’ A Wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord, A wonderful Savior to me. He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock. Where rivers of pleasure I see “. JESUS CHRIST IS THE TRUE SAVIOR OF THIS WORLD. May our hearts continue to be glad knowing that we have a Savior who loves us, who cares for us and want us to live with Him forever. I pray that we all will find Joy in this Wonderful Savior. Have a Wonderful week, may the Love of Christ continue to flow in and around you. Amen!
