GOD BECAME FLESH: John 1:1-2 +14 12-20-08

You have heard me say many times, there are many religions in the world today, but not any of them can say with assuridty that their Saviour is alive and well, but we Christians can declare that our Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ is.

He said in Rev.1:17 Fear not; I am the first and the last: 18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen;--

Many eyewitnesses saw him after His resurrection, Acts 1: 3 To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion** by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:--

God became flesh and come into this world for one purpose, and that was to save sinners.

Listen as I read our text in John 1:1-2 +14

1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2The same was in the beginning with God. --

14And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Listen as I read verse 14 once again; 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, Well we’re told in this passage “ the WORD was present in the beginning,*** and that the WORD was with God, and that the Word WAS God, and that the WORD was made flesh and that He dwelled among His people Israel”.

God surely must have loved mankind with an indescribable love, a love that we really cannot comprehend as human beings.

God, because He is God, knew that the human race would fall into sin and rebel against Him, and yet He still loved us.

Romans 5:6-8 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 7For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure * for a good man some would even dare to die.

8But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

I want us to notice, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. God always does every thing “in due time”. At exactly the right time. God sent His Only Begotten Son to earth at the precise time,

Galatians 4: 4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, -- lets be sure and notice that Jesus was made of {a woman}, nothing is said of Him being made of a man, and that’s because as I pointed out last time, man didn’t have any thing to do with Jesus being made, His Father was the Holy Ghost.

Isaiah 9:6-7 6For 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, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

7Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

Luke 1:26-35 26And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, 27To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. 28And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women**. 29And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
