God with Us! Part-Two.

Prophecy fulfilled and the work of the Holy Spirit!

The birth of Jesus is the focus of what Christmas is really all about, how God became man in human flesh and how by the work of the Holy Spirit Mari remained a virgin to her husband Joseph!

It is a miracle like the many that we find in the Bible, but people today reject everything that is not rational to their understanding? They cannot believe God, making all sorts of excuses about Him in relation to suffering, starvation, natural disaster not being prevented?

But in this story of the events around Jesus we see the prophetic being fulfilled, the same is also in the work of our repentance and salvation! Being turned from being cold and callous to God to being open and understanding that we have a loving father in God almighty!

Isaiah 9:6-7,   Matthew 1:22-23,   Luke 1:1-45,   Hebrews 2:14-15,   Revelation 22:16. 

‘Nailed for Us. Part-Two.

My Kingdom, is not of this Realm.

Pilate was an interesting man to be recorded in history, he was intelligent and he was privilaged to meet God face to face and question Him in human flesh.

Jesus told Him a truth, which was far beyond his comprehension and yet he also informed him that his power was not his own. We see that Pilate did try his very best to get the Lord set free.

Jesus said ‘that His Kindom was not of this realm’ and this remains so, but we who have placed our faith and trusted in the works of Jesus on the Cross and His resurrection from the dead have become part of His Kingdom.

Luke 17:20,  John 18:36-37,  Romans 14:17.

 

Walking with the Holy Spirit. Part-Two.

‘A Crucified Christian.’

Are we done with the world and all the bright lights of its dung and muck, have we surrendered ourselves completly to Jesus. This does not mean wearing uncomfortable cloathing or beating ourselves, but rather we have promised to allow the Holy Spirit of the Trinity to work in us a New creation.

When we have done with Sin, it does not mean that we will not be tempted by the Devil! But rather our will, will be stronger to resist him. We will be inclined to let attacks and disputes from other ‘Christians go by, like water on a ducks back.

We may still be hurt and offended, cut up inside, but we will push on and not show it.

Galatians 5:24-26,  James 3:14-16,  1 Peter 2:11,  Revelation 11:11.
