THE MESSAGE

MEDITATIONS ON THE BIRTH OF CHRIST

*******************************************

1. NAMES OF CHRIST

The birth of the Lord Jesus was to restore the authority that was lost through the fall of man. God had created man to have dominion over the earth . But man lost that authority through his disobedience . But Christ came to restore that . The prophet declared that the Government would be on His shoulders and He would reign with peace and justice on the throne of David. We must submit to the dominion of God in our lives and live under His authority. Christ was named Wonderful and therefore we can expect Him to perform wonders in our life. He was named Counsellor and we can receive His counsel and direction in our lives. He was named the Mighty God and therefore He is not a mere human being but an embodiment of God himself and we can expect Him to reveal Himself as a mighty God in our lives. He is the everlasting Father and therefore we can expect to receive His fatherly love and care all the days of our life. He is the Prince of peace and therefore we can expect Him to fill our hearts with His divine peace.

SCRIPTURE REFERENCES

********************************

ISAIAH 9:6-7

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this.

GENESIS 1:26-28

Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground."

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground."

JOHN 14:27

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

2. NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD

The birth of Christ was a demonstration of the power of God to perform the impossible . Mary was a virgin who wondered how she could give birth to a child without a man . But the angel of the Lord told it would happen by the power of the Holy Spirit. Even Elisabeth her relative was able to have a child in her old age , thus proving that nothing is impossible with God. Therefore the birth of Christ inspires our faith to beleive God for the impossible.
