Sermons about Messiah
The Christmas story calls for a response: Is Jesus a myth or the Messiah? This is no quaint, sentimental tale. This is serious and significant truth.
Spiritually speaking, the true essence of Christmas is God giving us exactly what we really need. In fact, even before anyone can hand Him a “wish list,” He has decided to bless us with gifts we will never receive without Him giving them to us. In our series, I have been sharing specific passages in the Old Testament that highlight the blessings prophesied through the Messiah, Jesus Christ. First, He is the savior who can deliver us from sin, self, and Satan. Last Sunday, we talked about Him as the Star of Jacob who is set to govern us. This morning, our emphasis is Jesus being our ultimate source of true peace in life. And our main text is Micah 5:1-6, with verse 5 as the key verse that says, “And he will be their peace.”
Mathew shares 5 Old Testament prophecies that were fulfilled at Jesus' birth as he begins his gospel.
This morning, we want to highlight another prophecy about the Lord Jesus Christ found in Numbers 24:15-19, which refers to Him as the “Star of Jacob.” Considering the background of this passage, Balaam, the prophet who was hired by Balak, the frightened king of Moa, was to place a curse on the nation of Israel. This curse was designed to hinder the nation from advancing to the Promised Land. However, every time he attempted to curse the nation, the Lord intervened and put words of blessings upon them. Prior to our text, Balaam had already attempted thrice, but all those attempts failed. In Balaam’s fourth prophecy for Israel, we find the reference concerning the Messiah as the star of Jacob. What do you think is the significance of this title regarding the coming Messiah?
Hans begins our Advent series "Receive The King" with a look at Luke 2 and Ephesians 2, preaching that Jesus came as a Peaceful King.
What do the prophets say about the Christmas message? What or whom does Isaiah describe as majestic and ornamental? Does the cross of Jesus appear in the Old Testament? This message addresses these questions and more.
The end of James summarizes the letter and the reality of the wandering of those who follow Christ. The grace we have is in the Messiah, who gives us himself and each other to grow in godliness and the joy of the Lord.
