The Birth of Christ

Father’s love to the ONLY Son, Jesus

John 17:24
New King James Version (NKJV)

24 “Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.

Proverbs 8:30
New King James Version (NKJV)

30 Then I was beside Him as a master craftsman;
And I was daily His delight,
Rejoicing always before Him,

Fresh reason for the Father to Love the Son

John 10:17
New King James Version (NKJV)

17 “Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again.

How much it could have caused God

We might not know how much it caused God the Father to send His Son

  • Pain of the One giving, the Pain of the One loving the Beloved

I don’t believe God is emotionless

  • We are made in Gods image and we have emotions, so God will have emotions, so God can be Grieved, God can be delighted, God can be Happy

Jesus to Nicodemus

  • Nicodemus who knows all about Old Testament and a Leader
  • Jesus told him to be born again

John 3:16
New King James Version (NKJV)

16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

  • Jesus was born to die
  • Whoever means not only Jews, WHOEVER. That’s why Nicodemus was shocked.

God’s Heart is not to Perish

  • Should not Perish

Luke 2:11
New King James Version (NKJV)

11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

  • Not a law giver like Moses
  • Jesus, Yeshua in Hebrew means Savior
    • Saving us from our sins
    • Saving us from our guilt
    • Saving us from our temporal needs
    • Saving us from our addictions
    • Saving us from the separation from God
    • Saving us from our situations

God’s love first

  • God send Jesus because of God’s love for us
    • God’s love first.
    • Death of Christ is the effect of God’s love
    • God Loved us long before He send Jesus
    • God send Jesus because of God’s love
  • Its WRONG to think “Death of Jesus Christ on the Cross is the cause for God loving us”

God didn’t send Jesus to Condemn

John 3:17
New King James Version (NKJV)

17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

Who can be against us?

  • One who is Omniscient : All knowing
  • One who is Omnipotent : All Powerful

Romans 8:31-32
New King James Version (NKJV)

31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?

  • Who can be against us?
  • What can be against us?
  • What is enemy against us?
  • What is satan against us?
  • What is diseases against us?
  • What is problems against us?
  • Even God was for us when the man was against Him

Blood

  • Blood of One Man (Jesus) has to be shed because of Another man’s (Adam’s) disobedience.
  • God made all mankind of one blood
  • Diseases can be seen in the blood, that’s why we go for blood test for testing
  • Sin starts in the blood
  • After a person dies, the first place it gets decaying is their blood
    • That’s why the Embalming Chemicals will be injected to a dead body in their blood stream to stop decomposition/decaying
  • Bible says “The life of the flesh is in the Blood”
  • That’s the necessity of the Virgin Birth
    • Research says Blood is not transmitted from Mother (Placenta ) to the Fetus
    • Woman’s ovum does not have the capacity to create its own blood
    • Only after the introduction of male sperm, the fetus in itself starts developing Capillaries and Blood Streams
    • Saying this reverently “The Holy Spirit Provided the Seed”
    • He Conceived in the Virgin’s womb, Christ.

Unasked

  • God loved us, unasked
  • God send His Son, unasked

Freely give us All things

Romans 8:32
New King James Version (NKJV)

32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?

Biggest Blessing : Jesus : Eternal Blessing : Best thing the heaven had

How not with Him also freely give us all things?

  • Healing
  • Health
  • Provision
  • Protection
  • Blessings

Matthew 6:30
New King James Version (NKJV)

30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

Matthew 7:11
New King James Version (NKJV)

11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!

He gave you an unasked Biggest Gift, Jesus, How much more if you ask

 

Ask Jesus

Matthew 7:9-11
New King James Version (NKJV)

Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!

Blessing for the children of Zion

Joel 2:23-27
New King James Version (NKJV)

23 Be glad then, you children of Zion,
And rejoice in the Lord your God;
For He has given you the former rain faithfully,[a]
And He will cause the rain to come down for you—
The former rain,
And the latter rain in the first month.
24 The threshing floors shall be full of wheat,
And the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil.

25 “So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten,
The crawling locust,
The consuming locust,
And the chewing locust,[b]
My great army which I sent among you.
26 You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied,
And praise the name of the Lord your God,
Who has dealt wondrously with you;
And My people shall never be put to shame.
27 Then you shall know that I am in the midst of Israel:
I am the Lord your God
And there is no other.
My people shall never be put to shame.

I also would have given you much more

2 Samuel 12:8
New King James Version (NKJV)

 

I gave you your master’s house and your master’s wives into your keeping, and gave you the house of Israel and Judah. And if that had been too little, I also would have given you much more!

The Lord also would have given you much more

You have not because you ask not

 

How you come out of tribulation?

About Tribulation

  • Pray: Lead us not in to trial
  • Trial / Tribulations is to remove self righteousness

Coming out of Tribulation

Psalm 66:12

King James Version (KJV)

12 Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place.
New American Standard Bible (NASB)

12 You made men ride over our heads;
We went through fire and through water,
Yet You brought us out into a place of abundance.

Abundance in Hebrew

  • Revayah : More than enough
  • Reva : Intoxication

Only other time Revayah is used

Psalm 23:5
New King James Version (NKJV)

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.

  • During the time of Holy Communion
  • Take Holy Communion in front of your enemy

Runs over in Hebrew

  • Revayah : More than enough
  • Reva : Intoxication

Peter was Self Confident (Example)

Luke 22:31-34
New King James Version (NKJV)

31 And the Lord said, “Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat. 32 But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.”

33 But he said to Him, “Lord, I am ready to go with You, both to prison and to death.

34 Then He said, “I tell you, Peter, the rooster shall not crow this day before you will deny three times that you know Me.”

  • Jesus prayed for Peter that faith should not fail ( NOT Peter should not fail ) : some time God might allow you through testings.
  • Jesus prophesied that Peter will return : “when you have returned”

Before devil attacks he has to think twice

  • Because if you respond in faith
  • He has to give up and you have the spoils of war
  • You will have much more ( Healing, Health , provision )
  • You will have abundance
  • You will have wealthy place

Tribulation to Hope

Romans 5:3-5
New King James Version (NKJV)

And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope.Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

My Fathers house have bread enough and to “spare”

Elisha Feeds One Hundred Men

2 Kings 4:42-43

New King James Version ( NKJV )

42 Then a man came from Baal Shalisha, and brought the man of God bread of the firstfruits, twenty loaves of barley bread, and newly ripened grain in his knapsack. And he said, “Give it to the people, that they may eat.”

43 But his servant said, “What? Shall I set this before one hundred men?”

He said again, “Give it to the people, that they may eat; for thus says the Lord: ‘They shall eat and have some left over.’” 44 So he set it before them; and they ate and had some left over, according to the word of the Lord.

Feeding the Five Thousand

Matthew 14:13-21

New King James Version (NKJV)

13 When Jesus heard it, He departed from there by boat to a deserted place by Himself. But when the multitudes heard it, they followed Him on foot from the cities. 14 And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick. 15 When it was evening, His disciples came to Him, saying, “This is a deserted place, and the hour is already late. Send the multitudes away, that they may go into the villages and buy themselves food.”

16 But Jesus said to them, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.”

17 And they said to Him, “We have here only five loaves and two fish.”

18 He said, “Bring them here to Me.” 19 Then He commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass. And He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitudes. 20 So they all ate and were filled, and they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments that remained.21 Now those who had eaten were about five thousand men, besides women and children.

Size and Style for two miracles

Size

  • Elisha : one hundred men
  • Lord Jesus fed : 5000 men not counting women and children –> 12 Basket full left over.

Style

  • Elisha has to say “thus says the Lord” ( Elisha used the name of Jesus to feed the people )  ( Elisha is a servant )
  • Jesus doesn’t need to say “thus says the Lord” because HE IS THE LORD
  • Jesus feed the 5000 in a desert place, in the wilderness
  • What’s man’s wilderness is Lords store house

HIS PROVISION IS ALWAYS GREATER THAN YOUR NEED

My Fathers house have bread enough and to SPARE

Luke 15:17

New King James Version (NKJV)

17 “But when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!

Gods blessings are greater than your need

You can’t curse whom God has blessed

Balak and Balaam

  • Balaam is a witch
  • Balak told Balaam to curse the People are Isreal
  • Instead of Cursing them, Blessing came out of Balaam’s mouth
    • Balaam tried the second time to curse but he failed again.

Verses spoken by Balaam

And how shall I denounce whom the Lord has not denounced?

Numbers 23:20

New King James Version (NKJV)

Nor any divination against Israel.
It now must be said of Jacob
And of Israel, ‘Oh, what God has done!’
