WHAT IF JESUS HAD NEVER BEEN BORN ?

GALATIONS 4:4-7

MOST OF US HERE THIS MORNING HAVE SEEN " IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE " WITH JIMMY STEWERT. HIS CHARACTOR NAME WAS GEORGE BAILY, AS A YOUNG BOY HA HAD DREAMS OF GROWING UP AND ONE DAY SEEING THE WORLD. IF YOU HAVE SEEN THE MOVIE THEN YOU NO THAT GEORGES DREAMS NEVER CAME TO PASS.

INSTEAD HE GOT THE HONOR OF TAKING OVER THE FAMILY BUSINESS. THIS WAS NOT A PART OF HIS DREAMS.

AS THE SHOW GOES ON HIS UNCLE MISPLACES 8,OOO DOLLARS. AFTER A FRANTIC SEARCH TO FIND THE MONEY TO NO AVAIL, GEORGE DECIDES THAT HE BE BETTER OF DEAD THAN ALIVE.

GEORGE WAS GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE HOW THINGS WOULD HAVE BEEN IF HE HAD NEVER BEEN BORN. ( IN JOB CHPT. 3, JOB, IN HIS AFFLICTION AND SUFFERING CURSES THE DAY THAT HE WAS BORN. JOB FELT THAT IT WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER IF HE HAD NEVER BEEN BORN, OR AT LEAST DIED AT BIRTH.) SOME OF YOU AT ONE TIME OR ANOTHER MAY HAVE SAID, I WISH I HAD NEVER BEEN BORN! BUT THE FACT IS WE TOUCH SO MANY PEOPLE LIVES WHILE WE ARE HERE ON THIS EARTH, AND WE SHOULD BE THANKFULL TO GOD THAT WE HAD THAT OPPORTUNITY. THINK ABOUT THIS, NO ONE IN HISTORY AS EVER MADE AN IMPACT ON THE WORLD LIKE JESUS.

AS AN INFANT, IN SPITE OF POVERTY AND OBSCURITY, HE ALARMED A KING.

AS A MAN, WITHOUT EVER PRACTICING MEDICINE OR WRITING A PRESCRIPTION, HE HEALED MORE THAN ALL THE DOCTORS.

WITHOUT EARNING A DEGREE OR FOUNDING AN INSTITUTION OF HIGHER LEARNING, HE HAD AND HAS MORE STUDENTS THAN ANY COLLEGE THE WORLD HAS EVER AND BECAME THE SUBJECT OF THE WORLDS GREATEST BOOK.

HE WAS UNIQUE AND PERFECT-- BOTH MAN AND GOD. AS MAN HE BECAME TIRED. HAS GOD, HE SAID," I WILL GIVE YOU REST."

AS MAN HE BECAME HUNGRY; AS GOD HE SAID," I AM THE BREAD OF LIFE."

AS MAN HE THIRSTED; AS GOD HE GIVES LIVING WATERS.

AS MAN HE PRAYED; AS GOD HE ANSWERED PRAYER.

AS MAN HE WAS TEMPTED; AS GOD HE WAS WITHOUT SIN.

WHEN JESUS CAME INTO THE WORLD , HE MADE ONE GREAT AFFIRMATION: " I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE. NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER EXCEPT THROUGH ME" ( JOHN 14:6 )

WHAT IF JESUS HAD NEVER BEEN BORN !!!!!!!!

I. WE WOULD HAVE NO INTIMATE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD!

A. WE WOULD NOT KNOW GOD AS OUR FAITHFUL COMPANION: ( GOD IS WITH US ).

MT. 1:23 BEHOLD, A VIRGIN SHALL BE WITH CHILD, AND SHALL BRING FORTH A SON, AND THEY SHALL CALL HIS NAME EMMANUEL, WHICH BEING INTERRETED IS, GOD WITH US.

ABOUT 700 YEARS BEFORE THIS ISAIAH PROPHISIED

IS.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 IMMANUEL.

B. WE WOULD NOT KNOW HIM AS OUR HEAVENLY FATHER.

ROMANS 8:14-15 FOR AS MANY AS ARE LED BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD, THEY ARE THE SONS OF GOD. FOR YE HAVE NOT RECEIVED THE SPIRIT OF BONDAGE AGAIN TO FEAR; BUT YE HAVE RECEIVED THE SPIRIT OF ADOPTION, WHEREBY WE CRY, ABBA, FATHER.

MATTHEW 6:9 AFTER THIS MANNER THEREFORE PRAY YE: OUR FATHER WHICH ART IN HEAVEN, HALLOWED BE THY NAME.

AS OUR FATHER GOD IS OUR PREIST, OUR PROTECTOR, OUR PROVIDER AND OUR PHYSCIAN.

IF JESUS HAD NOT BEEN BORN, WE WOULD NOT HAVE THE INTIMATE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD AS OUR FATHER. BUT, THANK GOD, THAT IN THE FULNESS OF TIME JESUS WAS BORN. WE DO KNOW GOD AS OUR FATHER.
