Christmas 2013

  1. 1. Jesus, the Christ, Messiah, Son of God Was to be born of the house of David And would sit on his father’s throne forever. People seldom study the genealogies in the Bible, but Matthew shows clearly that Jesus was descended from King David. He was and He will. 1
  2. 2. But I want to mention some interesting facts about that family going back even beyond David. Matt 1 Harlot of Jericho 5a And Salmon begat Boaz of Rahab; Tamar was Judah's daughter-in-law posing as a prostitute. Boaz married Ruth, a Moabite. 2
  3. 3. God didn’t choose a perfect family to be the family of His Son, Jesus Christ, the Messiah. But God chose the right family, including Gentiles and vile sinners among them. God chose you to be HIS son or daughter. Your ancestry matters not. You can start a new trend in your family. Just choose to live your life unto God. 3
  4. 4. God would have us understand that He saves and uses imperfect men and women to do His Work. Jesus came, the perfect sacrifice, to save us all from our sins. Whosoever will may come and be saved. Your past doesn't matter; Your family matters not. 4
  5. 5. Matt 1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. Joseph was thinking of quietly putting her away, because he thought she had committed adultery. 5
  6. 6. “Take Mary as your wife; her child is of the Holy Ghost.” Joseph believed and obeyed. 6
  7. 7. Caesar Augustus Caesar thought he was a god, but he was just a tool in the Hand of God. 7
  8. 8. Joseph and Mary went to Bethlehem to pay their taxes. 70 miles. Because of the census Bethlehem was filled to overflowing. 8
  9. 9. Jesus was born in a stable in a manger because there was no room for Him in the inn. The birth of the King of kings and Lord of lords wasn’t announced where you would expect.. 9
  10. 10. His birth was first announced to the lowliest of workmen in Israel. They told the Good News. 10
  11. 11. Temple for circumcision Anna 7+84=91 + 14= 105 Simeon 11
  12. 12. The wise men They saw Jesus’ special star in the east, and traveled a long journey to come and worship Him. 12
  13. 13. Jesus was about 2 years old by this time. 13
  14. 14. Jesus at age 12 The learned men in the temple were amazed at His understanding of the Word of God. They didn’t know that He was the Word made flesh to dwell among men. 14
  15. 15. At age 30 Jesus was baptized by His cousin, John the Baptist, and He began His ministry. 15
  16. 16. He preached deliverance to the poor and oppressed. The religious leaders hated Jesus. 16
  17. 17. They persuaded the Romans to kill Him. 17
  18. 18. Jesus was seen by hundreds of people after He rose from the dead. His Blood from sin. saves all 18
  19. 19. The Shed Blood of Jesus Christ is the only thing that will wash away our sins. If you believe this Truth, the Gospel of Jesus Christ: that Jesus is the Holy Son of God; If you believe that He came to this earth, born of a virgin, to live as a man, yet without sin; If you believe that He gave His life, shedding His Blood for you; 19
  20. 20. All that remains for you to do is to ask. Pray a prayer something like this: Dear Heavenly Father, I come to You in the Name of Your Son, Jesus Christ. I want to be born of Your Spirit into Your family. I ask You to forgive me of my sins, washing them away in the Blood of Jesus. Lord, be merciful to me a sinner and save me from the bondage of sin and the torments of hell. I thank You Lord for my salvation. Amen. 20
  21. 21. If you sincerely prayed that prayer, You are a born again child of the Living God. Your sins are forgiven; you are cleansed. Your testimony can be as simple as: "I love the Lord and thank God for saving me." 21
