Sermons about Immanuel
Preacher: Pastor Tony Simpson. The names Jesus and Immanuel were to be given to the child to be born because they described why he was coming into the world and who he was.
It is clear why Jesus came to live on Earth; to save His people from sin. In today's culture this is harder and harder to teach, as the world tries to make Jesus what they want Him to be. And then when disaster strikes, they wonder why "He allows this to happen".
I. He dwelt in the temple in Jerusalem. II. He dwells in Jesus Christ...A living temple where the divine and earthly meet. * The announcement of Israel's long-expected King and Savior (Luke 1:26-33) * Israel's expectations in their Messiah. 1. Conquering King (Zech. 14:1-11) 2. A Messiah who would free them from their sins. (Zech. 9:9-12) * God's response...Immanuel...God with us! (Isaiah 7:14) 1. A new temple...(2 Samuel 7:11-14a) 2. A long awaited King (Isaiah 9:6) III. He dwells in the Church. * How does God choose to rule and reign now? (Acts 1:3b-8, Rev 5:9-10, 1 Cor. 15:20-28)
In Isaiah's prophecy of the Christ child, we see a fundamental doctrine of the Christian faith - the dual nature of Jesus Christ. Jesus was both fully human, and fully divine.
If we do not understand the birth (nativity) of Christ, we do not grasp the significance of Christmas. It is NOT what the world made of it (presents, gifts and Santa), but it is the most single significant event in history. Only by believing that Jesus Christ is Lord of our lives can we be saved from God's wrath. Do you believe on the One God send?
