DO YOU KNOW JESUS

ISA; 9:6--- FOR UNTO US A CHILD IS BORN, UNTO US A SON IS GIVEN; AND THE GOVERNMENT SHALL BE UPON HIS SHOULDER; AND HIS NAME SHALL BE CALLED WONDERFUL, COUNSELLER, THE MIGHTY GOD, THE EVERLASTING FATHER, THE PRINCE OF PEACE.

LET US PRAY:

FATHER, WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRECIOUS WORD. WE ASK FOR YOUR ANOINTING UPON THIS SERVICE. HIDE YOUR SERVANT BEHIND THE CROSS-OF CALVARY AND LET JESUS BE LIFTED UP AND GLORIFIED. HOLY SPIRIT, HAVE YOUR WAY IN THIS SERVICE. OPEN OUR HEARTS AND OUR MINDS TO RECEIVE WHAT YOU HAVE FOR US TONIGHT. IN THE PRECIOUS AND HOLY NAME OF JESUS WE PRAY. AMEN.

DO YOU KNOW JESUS?

THE WORLD KNOWS OF HIM AND THEY KNOW ABOUT HIM. SOME BY GOING TO CHURCH AND HEARING THE PREACHER OR EVANGELIST SPEAK ABOUT HIM. THERE ARE TELEVISION PROGRAMS ABOUT HIM. YOU CAN READ ABOUT HIM IN THE ENCLYCLOPEDIA.
WE CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS AS HIS BIRTHDAY. WE CELEBRATE EASTER BECAUSE OF HIS DEATH UPON THE CROSS-. YES, THE WORLD HAS HEARD ABOUT HIM AND KNOWS ABOUT HIM.

BUT, FEW REALLY KNOW HIM.

DO YOU KNOW JESUS?

DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT HIS BIRTH?

MATT; 1:18, 21-----SAYS: NOW THE BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST WAS ON THIS WISE; WHEN AS HIS MOTHER MARY WAS ESPOUSED TO JOSEPH, BEFORE THEY CAME TOGETHER, SHE WAS FOUND WITH CHILD OF THE HOLY GHOST. THE JOSEPH HER HUSBAND, BEING A JUST MAN, AND NOT WILLING TO MAKE HER A PUBLICK EXAMPLE, WAS MINDED TO PUT HER AWAY PRIVILY, BUT WHILE HE THOUGHT ON THESE THINGS, BEHOLD, THE ANGEL OF THE LORD APPEARED UNTO HIM IN A DREAM, SAYING, JOSEPH, THOU SON OF DAVID, FEAR NOT TO TAKE UNTO THEE MARY THY WIFE; FOR THAT WHICH IS CONCEIVED IN HER IS OF THE HOLY GHOST. AND SHE SHALL CALL HIS NAME JESUS: FOR HE SHALL SAVE HIS PEOPLE FROM THEIR SINS.

ISA; 7:14-----THEREFORE THE LORD HIMSELF SHALL GIVE YOU A SIGN BEHOLD A VIRGIN SHALL CONCEIVE, AND BEAR A SON, AND SHALL CALL HIS NAME EMANUEL, WHICH BEING INTERPRETED IS, GOD WITH US.

LUKE; 1:34, 36----THEN SAID MARY UNTO THE ANGEL, HOW SHALL THIS BE, SEEING I KNOW NOT A MAN? AND THE ANGEL ANSWERED AND SAID UNTO HER, THE HOLY GHOST SHALL COME UPON THEE, AND THE POWER OF THE HIGHEST SHALL OVERSHADOW THEE: THEREFORE ALSO THAT HOLY THING WHICH SHALL BE BORN OF THEE SHALL BE CALLED THE SON OF GOD.

THE BIBLE PLAINLY STATES THAT JESUS WAS BORN OF A VIRGIN. CONCEIVED BY THE HOLY GHOST. HE WAS NOT BORN OF MAN. HE DID NOT HAVE ONE DROP OF MAN’S BLOOD IN HIM. HE WAS THEREFORE SINLESS.
HIS CHILDHOOD:

THE ONLY THING THE BIBLE TELLS US OF HIS CHILDHOOD. WAS, AT THE AGE OF TWELVE, AS JOSEPH AND MARY WERE RETURNING FROM JERUSALEM, JESUS TARRIED BEHIND.

AFTER SERCHING FOR HIM FOR THREE DAYS, THEY FOUND HIM IN THE TEMPLE, SITTING IN THE MIDST OF THE DOCTORS, BOTH HEARING THEM AND ASKING THEM QUESTIONS. AND ALL THAT HEARD HIM WERE ASTONISHED AT HIS UNDERSTANDING AND ANSWERS.

JESUS WAS NOT JUST AN ORDINARY CHILD. HE WAS ANOINTED EVEN IN CHILDHOOD.

JESUS HAD A MISSION:

HIS MINISTRY BEGAN WHEN HE WAS ABOUT THE AGE OF THIRTY.

AS THE SON WAS BEING BAPTISED IN THE JORDAN RIVER BY JOHN, THE HOLY GHOST DECENDED IN A BODILY SHAPE LIKE A DOVE UPON HIM, AND A VOICE CAME FROM HEAVEN, WHICH SAID, THOU ART MY BELOVED SON, IN THEE I AM WELL PLEASED. THIS IS A PERFECT PICTURE OF THE TRINITY OF GOD UNITED AS ONE.

AFTERWARD JESUS WAS LED INTO THE WILDERNESS BY THE SPIRIT WHERE HE WAS TEMPTED OF THE DEVIL FOR
