For God sent not His Firstborn Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Christ might be saved. 🤔
His Name was Known, The sacrifice was set eons before it occurred!
In Matthew and Luke we can read about the birth of Jesus. We learn several things about the birth of Jesus in the prophecies in the Old Testament.
Judah will hold the royal scepter,
And his descendants will always rule.
Nations will bring him tribute
And bow in obedience before him. (Genesis 49:10)
The Lord says, “Bethlehem Ephrathah, you are one of the smallest towns in Judah, but out of you I will bring a ruler for Israel, whose family line goes back to ancient times.” (Micah 5:2)
The royal line of David is like a tree that has been cut down; but just as new branches sprout from a stump, so a new king will arise from among David’s descendants. (Isaiah 11:1)
The Lord says, “The time is coming when I will choose as king a righteous descendant of David. That king will rule wisely and do what is right and just throughout the land. (Jeremiah 23:5)
You will always have descendants, and I will make your kingdom last forever. Your dynasty will never end. (2 Samuel 7:16)
We talk about “seeing is believing.” Speaking and Knowing is Existing in The Spirit! Amen. We all have The Spirit in us! https://www.christianpost.com/news/is-gods-spirit-in-everyone.html
Ask and you shall recieve, Amen. The Spirit has been poured on us, Amen.
Christ-mas gift(s)? Priceless!
God did not send His son to condemn us. God did the total opposite – God sent Jesus to save us from condemnation and eternal damnation. The reason why we can gladly say we are children of God, and that the salvation we have received is eternal, is because God gave Jesus – The Word, in Which ALL is Created – up to pay the price so that we would not have to. We will never find a Love greater than this from anyone else or at any time, Amen. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die.
And we pray:
Dear God, I will always be in awe when I think of how great Your Love for me, and everyone in this world, is. We were not anywhere close to righteous when You sent Your firstborn, Your Word – Jesus The Christ, to die for us; but that did not stop You. It did not move you away from us. If anything, it compelled You even more to redeem us and You did this without being asking, You did it for You define Love, Amen. You truly are a Good, Good Father. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
