"And It Came To Pass"

(Luke 2:1) “And it came to pass…”396 times in scripture these exact words are used. The first is in (Genesis 4:8) as the line of Christ begins, and the last is in (Acts 28:17) with the Apostle Paul’s closing story concerning the Church. You see, the Bible promised man from the very beginning that God would send His Son into the world, born of a virgin in time, to save man from his sins, and the Bible has told the story very well. God kept his word when Jesus came, God kept his word when Jesus died and rose again for the dead, and God kept His Word when He sent His Holy Spirit to start His church upon the earth. All this “came to pass” as the scriptures foretold; but why is there no more “and it came to pass” after (Acts28:17)? The answer, because the end has not yet come to pass. The Apostle John was commanded to write (Rev. 1:19) Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;” The things that are “hereafter” have not yet com…

The Mighty God, Everlasting Father, And Prince Of Peace

(Isaiah 9:6)  “… and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” In the above verse it’s important to point out the definite article “The” before each of the last three names of Jesus; meaning that Jesus is therefore the only “mighty God, everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace,” for there is not, nor can there ever be another besides Him.  1) The Mighty God. For unto us God came, unto us a son was given who was and is “theonly” Son of “The Most High God,” andalthough he is called a son, he is still God Almighty.(Rev. 1:8) “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.”2)The Everlasting Father.” To this some will say, Well how can this be? For naturally this would be impossible, but not with God. In the Bible Jesus Christ is shown to be God Himself in human flesh. He was and is “The living Word of God,”“The Creator of the world,” “The only…

"Our Mighty God And Counsellor Jesus Christ"

(Luke 6:46) “And why call me Lord, Lord, and do not the things that I say.”  If someone is Lord than they should have both the authorityand the expectation of having their commands met and obeyed. To not obey Our Lord would be a rejection of both His authority and His will, and yet that is exactly what Christians do when they don’t listen to the counsel and commands of Jesus Christ and His Word. In (Isaiah 9:6) Jesus is called both “The Mighty God and Counselor.” Which means that as God he has supreme authority and the unquestionable ability to counsel men in his perfect wisdom. The problem in our world today is that man has increased so much in his knowledge and learning that in many cases he places more trust in what man thinks than in what God says in His Word. For example, just as you wouldn’t go to a Pastor for brain surgery, why then go to the world for spiritual advice and wisdom. The true and eternal wisdom of this world comes solely from God. We are so foolish when we listen …

Jesus Is a Wonderful Son And Savior

(Isa. 9:6) "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace."  Some of the greatest truths taught in the Bible about our Lord Jesus Christ are found in the names ascribed to him in the above verse. 1) His Name Is Wonderful.  (Php. 2:10) "That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;" 2) Counsellor.He counsels man through His Spirit. (Isa.11:2)"And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;" 3) The Mighty God. (1Ch 29:11) "Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty:" 4. The Everlasting Father. He is a father forever. (Heb. 13:5) "… …
