LET US NOT FORGET
"JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON"
The Babe, The Christ child, Jesus, Immanuel
The focus of the entire narratives, just like our calendar years date
to the birth, then after the birth, so does the Old Testament lead up
to the birth, with prophecy after prophecy being fulfilled perfectly
with the birth birth (over 300 fulfilled during his life,
The babe was named Jesus which is Greek for Joshua or Yeshua and
means savior. Matthew also states he'd be called Immanuel which means
God with us. He's most known as Jesus Christ, not that Christ was his
last name. Christ was a title which has the same meaning as the Hebrew
Messiah which means the Anointed One.Anointing was usually done by applying some oil to the head of a person
who was to have a special purpose in life, such as kings and priests,
So what was the big deal about this baby being born? The scriptures say the wages of sin is death (or reworded; the payment
of sin, or what sin earns you) and we find out in other scriptures that
this death is not a pleasant one, but one involving eternal torment. In
the old testament the people would offer sacrifices for their sins, the
only problem was the sacrifices could never replace the wages of sin,
but just put the pay day off a while. What was needed was an ultimate
sacrifice that could remove these wages. We see that Jesus was that
ultimate sacrifice [see 1 John 2:1,2]. He had to be both fully man and
fully God, thus the being born of a virgin, conceived by the Holy
Spirit. This is where the masses misunderstood at the time, they were
looking for a Messiah or Christ to come and be a military strongman and
free their nation from foreign oppression forever. But was a spiritual
strongman providing freedom from sin forever by replacing the wages of
sin (Hell) with a gift from God which is eternal life (Heaven). HALLELUJAH!!! THANK YOU GOD FOR GIVING US THIS CHILD ON THAT BLESSED DAY!!
