Seek Jesus

You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13

Are you seeking Jesus with all your heart, mind, and soul? The 3 wisemen  traveled over 900 miles from Persia (Iran) to Bethlehem, which probably took over 2 years to find the King Jesus. They read the prophecies from the scriptures and knew if this was true they better find out!

Many of us today have already heard the gospel of Christ, you heard about his crucifixion and resurrection, but many of you doubt. Have you seeked the Lord Jesus? If you don’t believe in the resurrection, have you done diligent research to disprove it? Many Atheists have tried this in the past and led to be Born Again once the truth has been revealed to them

Since the beginning of time God has wanted us to seek him. He tells the Israelites if they seek him, they will find him. Question is how many of them took him up on his offer? How many rather take the easy road and trust in the world rather than trust in their Creator?

Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. Matthew 7:7

Jesus is saying the same thing today to You, Seek and you will find Him. The question is are you truly seeking Jesus or are you just listening to people? Knock on The Door (Jesus) and he will answer You!

For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Matthew 7:8

Who is allowed to Seek Jesus? EVERYONE, Jesus says everyone who seeks him will find him! The blood of Christ has allowed us to become Children of God and inherit his eternal Kingdom through Christ Amen!

King of Kings

Behold, the days are coming,” declares the LORD, “When I will raise up for David a righteous Branch; And He will reign as king and act wisely And do justice and righteousness in the land. Jeremiah 23:5

Here is another Messianic prophecy given by God to Jeremiah.God will raise up a righteous King! This Branch (Messiah) will be from the line of David. How can Jesus be from the Line of David when he is the Son of God?

Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth,to Judea, to the city of David which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David, in order to register along with Mary, who was engaged to him, and was with child. Luke 2:4-5

Joseph was from the Line of David, when the census was ordered, he registered his family including Jesus , as descendants of David.Now we know Joseph was not Jesus biological Father, however he basically“adopted” him legally as his own Son. This technically made Jesus from the Line of David

Also there is a lot of symbolic meaning with the Line of David.  David was the first King that was picked and anointed by God. Saul was Israels first King however God did not pick him, and it ended terribly for Israel and Saul

And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” Revelation 19:16

Jesus is the King of Kings, the fulfillment of being the righteous Branch of David (King)

In His days Judah will be saved, And Israel will dwell securely; And this is His name by which He will be called, ‘The LORD our righteousness.’Jeremiah 23:6

The title here for Jesus is “ The Lord (Yahweh) our Righteousness” basically meaning of the Messiah (Christ) God becoming Flesh to rule over the Earth! This has been fulfilled and Jesus is returning soon Amen!

Good News

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:10-11

The Day that Jesus was Born, the Angel said it brought “Good News”. The Biblical meaning of Gospel is “Good News” So essentially the day Christ was born, the gospel was Born also. The Gospel of Christ is Good News for everyone! However often when we hear about the Gospel people react in a negative way or perception

The Angel also said this Good News will bring us all “Great Joy”. Obviously, thing brings Great Joy because Jesus has brought salvation to the world. Jesus has brought us a solution for our sins so we can inherit eternal life.

Some might say I don’t feel this Great Joy , know this the coming of Christ is the fulfillment of Gods promise to bring us salvation. There may be pain in the night but Joy comes in the morning!

“Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.”Luke 2:14

The worship service continued as all the Angels celebrated and glorified there Lord and Savior being born this day! The Angels said “Peace on Earth”! Where is this Peace? When the world is continually at war with each other, how can there be Peace?

Jesus , The Prince of Peace, gives us an inner Peace that the world cant take away. Knowing whatever happens in this world, you are saved, you are set free, you are loved, should give you the greatest inner peace beyond human comprehension.

Don’t be afraid for the Savior has already been born, receive him into your heart today Amen!

Heart of Christmas

Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. Ezekiel 36:26

Why do people reject Christ? Why do people continue to runaway from God? Because they have hearts of stone. When you live for the flesh, your only future is death. When you live in the Spirit for Christ, your future is everlasting life. This can only happen if God has given you a spiritual heart transplant

Over 2,000 years ago, God became human and came down to live among us in Jesus Christ. The greatest gift of Grace was sent down to all of us, who is willing to receive it? Who is willing to receive Jesus Christ in their hearts? Who is willing to leave behind the old sins of the past and follow the Savior Jesus?

If you receive this gift , God will place a New Heart inside you, the Holy Spirit will live in you! This is the Heart of Christmas, to accept the greatest gift of Jesus Christ into your heart

Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me. Psalm 51:10

Jesus  is making all things new, including You! Receive him into your heart and let him create a clean and new heart inside you. The old Heart of Stone must first be removed,Repent and receive your Lord and Savior, the newborn King of Kings!

“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. Matthew 5:8

Do you want to live in the Kingdom of God with our Lord Jesus for all eternity? If so you must receive the gift of Grace God has sent to us. Only the Pure in Heart, the ones with a renewed Heart in Christ will see God Amen!

Immanuel

Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel. Isaiah 7:14

Israel asked for a sign from God, and God sent a sign his name is Jesus Christ! What does this sign mean? More importantly what does this sign mean to you? The name Immanuel is a title, same as the title Christ (Messiah) Immanuel means “God is with Us”

God came down to Earth to save humanity. God didn’t just come to save Israel , God came to save the entire world. Immanuel “God is With Us” Think about that.

And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14

God became Flesh and lived among us! Can you imagine God becoming a man and living with us, and not only that taking the penalty and suffering for our sins. Can you imagine the Creator of the Heavens and Earth would care enough about you, to come down and save your life?

Can you imagine the Lord of Lords would leave his throne and become the Passover Lamb of God to free you from sin and death?

This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Luke 2:12

A sign from God was given to us, Immanuel “God is with Us”. He became the baby in the manger to be our Lord and Savior. Come to the Manger and bow down before your new born King in Jesus Name Amen!

The Time Has Come!

But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law Galatians 4:4

The time has come! God has sent his only begotten Son born of a virgin!  Because of this great gift given to us from our Heavenly Father , we can now be children of God. Many find it hard to imagine that we could become part of this covenant, but because of the great gift of Christ, the time has come!

We are no longer slaves to sin and death because of the birth of our Messiah. Because of this reflect on the importance of Jesus birth. Our hope and peace could not be possible without birth of Christ. Heaven came down to Earth to save us from our sins.

But because Jesus was born under the law, he had to die for our sins because the wages of sin is death. He became the living sacrifice, the atonement for us so we can be free. The gift of Jesus is the gift of eternal life. Without Christ there would be no hope but since God sent his son we can live in Jesus Name Amen

Light of The World

The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. John 1:9-10

During this Christmas season  when I see all the lights lit up at night, I see the radiance of Jesus Christ. The light of the world sent to give us hope and salvation. There something beautiful about seeing bright light shine in the darkness. This is the beauty of Jesus Christ, when all hope is gone he is our light of the world.

God made in the flesh, and the world still didn’t recognize him. Everyone noticed the light, because a light can’t be hidden. However even though the self-professed experts of the law of God, didn’t  recognize him, they instead condemned and rejected him. Don’t make the same mistake, recognize your Lord and Savior , Jesus Christ

Even though the world was made through Jesus Christ, he lowered himself below the angels to become our Passover Lamb. The light of the world shined among us into this dark world. So when you look at your lights this Christmas season remember the light of the world given to us in Jesus Name Amen

Gods Gift To Us All

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16

We often hear that God is love and this love has been demonstrated by God sending his only begotten Son , Jesus, into this world to save us and be our Lord. Can we really know love without action? You can be reassured by the birth of Jesus, it’s a sign that God does love you! Even though we were sinners, Christ still came down from Heaven and eventually died for us!

God has fulfilled and shown his promises to us by sending Jesus to us. The more you study the Old Testament, the more you realize it’s about the coming of our Messiah. There are about 300 prophesies about Jesus in the Old Testament and all these prophesies have been fulfilled in the manger at Bethlehem.

Shouldn’t you rejoice of Gods other promise of eternal life to whoever believes in Jesus. This is why the sky was filled with angels rejoicing singing “Glory to God in the highest” because God loves us enough to send Jesus to redeem us. Is there any other greater gift? The only begotten Son of God given to us as the greatest gift of all in Jesus Name Amen

Enmity

And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.” Genesis 3:15

The first prophecy of our Lord Jesus comes in the first book in the Bible Genesis. You don’t have to read far into the Bible to know that God had a plan for our redemption and it was through his Son Jesus Christ.

Enmity– state or feeling of being actively opposed, or enemy

Notice Jesus is between Satan and mankind. Jesus is the Savior of the world opposing the evilness of Satan. Her offspring that is prophesied is none other than the birth of Jesus Christ. The woman that is prophesied is the virgin Mary. Through the birth of Christ, at the manger, God has revealed his plan for redemption for the human race.

There is no other road to redemption except through the offspring, the Son of God, Jesus Christ. He is the Truth, Life , and Way we can’t get to the Father without him. As God promised Jesus will crush the head of Satan, he defeated sin and death at the cross.

But Satan will continue to strike our heels, meaning he will continue to attack Christians and God. We need to stay strong in The Lord, remember that our Savior was born and he redeemed us all in Jesus Name Amen

Without Excuse

For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. Romans 1:20

What is your excuse for not accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? God is telling us there is evidence all around from his creation and we are without excuse! Ever since God spoke the Heavens and Earth into existence his qualities have been clearly seen

Jesus said “Since you have seen me you have seen The Father (John 14:9) God sent his only begotten Son here and dwelt among us. Yet still many deny the existence of our Lord Jesus and deny our Creator and Heavenly Father. Why? Because they walk in darkness, the dark hates the light. The evidence is overwhelming that you are a creation of God and so is everything that came into existence.

So as you celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, celebrate the clear evidence that God is in complete control. Celebrate that even though we were sinners , Christ still came here to Earth and died for our sins. Because God is love and we are without excuse in Jesus Name Amen
