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.

Resoloutions.

False Promises.

This is the time of the year when we will try to make promises, that we call ‘resoloutions.’ Many of us who do such things know that we will never complete them. We do it now almost like a tradition.

I hope this is not how you have set your relationship, your walk with God. Yes ‘I have repented, but what the heck I will carry on living the way I was.’

Even today there are many ‘Churches who have abandoned repentence and shunning the Devil, Why? Perhaps they want us in their Apostate nature to forgive and allow those who sexualiy abuse children, who are financialy dishonest, who have sex men with men and women with women to be accepted and not prosecuted.

Genesis 6:5,   Exodus 22:13,  27,   James 2:6-7,   Revelation 3:17.

Enoch.

The day of judgement is coming and all of humanity will be convicted of their greed, evil, exploitation. but on that day there will be no chance to repent of the wrong committed. Genesis 5:18-24, Jude 14-15.

Enoch was an ordinary man who lived by faith, he walked with God and despite having a family and all the problems that life brings, he was able to maintain fellowship with God. God was so pleased with him, that he suddenly took him, translated (taken-up). Enoch disappeared one day, there were no fanfares, celebrations, parties, he just was taken.

Leviticus 26:3, Psalm 1:1, 15:2-3, 16:11, Proverbs 10:9, 21:9.

The time for Salvation is now, today, in repentance, changed attitudes.

But there must remain conditions to continuing with the Lord Jesus. Romans 6:4, 2 Corinthians 4:2, 5:7.
