    Series: 5 Wisdom Psalms

    Speaker: Matt Johnson

    Now you may NOT LIKE who God made you. But is that a problem with God or with you? You may wish God made you normal because you just want to fit in and be loved. But God made you better than normal. He made you UNIQUE and part of the beauty of this world is your UNIQUENESS. You need to grasp that whatever weaknesses you perceive in yourself – Gods grace is still sufficient for you – to live a glorious, wonderful, blessed life (2Cor.12:9-10). THE PROBLEM is not in how God made you. THE PROBLEM is in how you perceive you. But thankfully, the all-knowing God has given us Scripture so that we can know ourselves properly.

    Series: Christmas 2023

    Speaker: Matt Johnson

    The story of Jesus’ birth is not just a story of joy, peace, wise men, shepherds and a romanticized picture of an animal stable. Jesus’ birth is actually shrouded in evil. There is such a thing as EVIL in this world and many of us have seen it. Immediately upon Jesus’ birth – an evil man named King Herod the Great tried to kill Jesus. As the true and rightful King of Jerusalem – King Herod saw Jesus as A THREAT. Herod himself perceived that there was something true about Jesus.

    If Jesus was A NOBODY, he is a threat to no one. But even Herod saw something rang true about Jesus. But instead of coming to worship Jesus, he conspired to kill Jesus. There are no EXTERNAL HISTORICAL RECORDS of this event. But we know Herods evil conduct is in keeping with his character. Herod had already killed several family members – to preserve his title King of the Jews. So instead of A) worshiping Jesus, B) he uses his authority to order the killing of all the babies under two years of age in and around Bethlehem.

    You can imagine the great SADNESS that must have accompanied many families at this first Christmas. King Herod’s order to kill all the babies was Satan’s final roll of the dice to prevent Jesus actually saving the world. (As we saw in yesterdays sermon – Satan had been working for 2000 years to prevent the birth of Jesus – because God told Satan in the garden of Eden – that a promised child would one day crush his head). But Satan failed to prevent Jesus’ birth. So in a great, grotesque act of INJUSTICE the order was given – kill all the babies. Sadly, Jesus came into the world facing A GREAT ACT OF INJUSTICE and he left the world because of A GREAT ACT OF INJUSTICE.

    Genesis 3:15 says, “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.” This is known as the protoevangelium—the first gospel.
    From the moment God has promised a Saviour will come to redeem mankind, Satan has been trying to prevent the coming of the Messiah by perverting Jesus’ ancestors and disrupt His bloodline. The gospel on Jesus’ genealogy traces back his ancestors and the events that nearly stopped the prophecy.

    In the end, God’s sovereignty and Word prevails, the Messiah who ‘crushed the head of the serpent’ and redeem mankind from sin was born.

    Speaker: Matt Johnson

    he original Greek word is actually – “VISITATION”. It is a word that means theophany or an appearance of God. Yahweh God (the Creator) visited Jerusalem in Jesus in 30AD – and they cried crucify. The people didn’t want Jesus or God in their life – so they tried to kill him. But rejecting God the author of life is tantamount to killing ourself. Rejecting God is rejecting life….
    Although, God loves you like a parent and is ready to forgive you of anything and everything – you are ultimately responsible for your ACTIONS and your CHOICES. In the end we will all stand before the judgment throne of God. So what will you do? If the evidence for God and His Son Jesus is equal or better than any of the alternatives currently available – will you believe or not. And if the answer is still no – the question you must yourself is WHY?

    Well this passage is wanting us to see that the Lord Jesus is actually the LORD Yahweh in human form. Jesus has the name LORD, because he is LORD. Another famous prophecy written by Jeremiah in 600BC says this; (Jer.23:5-6; Slide 13-14). Now David was the first proper Jewish King and God said the Messiah would one day come from David’s line. But Jeremiah says the Messiah’s name will be “the LORD, our righteous Saviour.” Notice LORD is capitals. It’s Gods name. The problem was no ordinary sinful human king could properly represent God on earth or save the world. So God, the Creator God, came to earth as the man Jesus to help and save his children.
