CHRIST THE SAVIOR ON CHRISTMAS.
Mt.1:1.The book of the generation of Jesus Christ the son of David the son of Abraham.’ Is Jesus the savior of the world? Has he come on this Christmas eve that we celebrate ?Was he sent of God? was he the Messiah the world was looking for? This one line from Mathew. will reveal to us.today.Not that we don’t know,but it rejoices our heart to see how the prophecies direct to him alone. You know how it is. You can reach to one person in the entire world thru letter. You can just write his name and his address, and that is sufficient for the mail to cross millions and reach to that one person. How does it start? first you select from all nations of the world, one country where he lives.India.and so we eliminate all other countries. Then we select the state, and eliminate all other states. then point out that one city, and eliminate all other cities, then we point to the very house he lives and eliminate even his close relatives. and reach to his house. and to his person. In the same way, and same principles God, has given us sufficient proof and details in the O.T.concerning the coming Messiah, and by doing that God has enabled us to pick one from all history, from all nations, from all people. and be absolutely sure that he is the Messiah. Let us on this Christmas eve carefully examine his credentials. and get to his proper address and to the person himself. Once we go thru it you will come to know very clearly that no other person in the history of the world could fulfill all the Messianic predictions, or even a very small percentage of them except Jesus of Nazareth. In the first place God eliminated the entire male population of the world as the immediate parent of the Messiah and at the same time he made it clear the Messiah would come as a man not an angel. For the day Adam and Eve sinned. he promised them that the coming deliverer would be of “the seed of the woman.”Gen.3:15.Here God was preparing Isaiah.to come with a prophecy of a virgin birth of Christ.bt here he gave the gospel message too.He said.”It shall bruise thy head.”tht speaks of the Messiah’s sufferings. He would be a man of sorrow. he would be wounded for our transgression, he would be bruised for our iniquities, and the chastisement of our peace would be upon him and by his stripes we would be healed.bt the death would not culminate the plan of Gd.he would rise up as victorious. for He also said “it (Messiah) shall bruise thy head.’ That speaks of the victory that Jesus will have over sin and death and Satan. Praise Gd.if you have the spirit you can get a complete salvation.message in Gen.3:15.When God said that. Adam and Eve understood this message,tht is why Eve at the birth of her son said. “I have gotten a man from the lord.”(Gen.4:1).when her first born arrived, Eve thought that the promised deliverer had come. But she was mistaken as to the time, and place, and many other specifications. Many centuries must pass before the Messiah could come, There has to be a fullness of time, and it came it happened, after 4000 yrs.Eve knew not it would take tht much time.so Paul says. “bt when the fullness of time had come,Gd sent forth his son,made of a woman to redeem…”(Gal.4:4-5). Yu know how it all happened.Gd chose Noah,while the whole then world was destroyed.So surely out of Noah the Messiah should come.Now Noah had 3 sons.Shem,Ham,and Japeth.God said,that the Messiah must come thru Shem.Noah said it. “Blessed be Yehovah the Elohim of Shem.”You know how when Noah ws drunk the youngest mocked.There Gd made a choice from the fmly of Noah.It is thru the line of Shem,Noah’s first born,tht both the Heb.nation and the Messiah ws born.”Shem”means to indicate tht he should be noted.This prophecy ws fulfilled in Gods choice of Abraham and of Israel,tht is Shem’s descendants.Shem must have written the entire geneology.for his life span covered 98yrs before the flood,until 502 after the flood,which means that he lived until 75 years after Abraham entered Canaan.Gen.10;21 says “he is the father of all the children of Eber” the term Hebrew is derived from the name Eber,and Eber also means “to pass over.”Did yu see tht?tht is why bible says “when Noah awaked from his sleep.He didn’t awake from his drinks,bt,awoke by inspiration by a spirit of prophecy.He said.”Blessed be the lord Gd of Shem.”(Gen.9:26).You saw how all other hundreds of nations were eliminated and one nation was chosen? a new nation started by God himself. when he called out Abram saying leave your kindred your family and your land. did you see that? the land was discarded, the family was discarded, relatives were discarded. So the God of history divides the nations in two groups. Jews and gentiles. There are only two groups now. Jews who believe. in God thru the lord Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection, and gentiles, who believe/not believe in Gd,bt not thru the Lord Jesus Christ. Now thru the small nation of Israel the Messiah, the God in flesh shall come. Praise Gd.Now isn’t it interesting who could it be? Now listen let us go back to Abraham.God said. “Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee. And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”(Gen.12:1,3).
