  • Celebrating all the accomplishments of the Son

    This time of year believers participate in the pageantry climaxing on December 25th.
    What believers celebrate was described about 700 years before the event in this passage from the Prophet Isaiah.

    Isaiah 9:6-7 NCV
    6 A child has been born to us;
    God has given a son to us.
    He will be responsible for leading the people.
    His name will be Wonderful Counselor, Powerful God,
    Father Who Lives Forever, Prince of Peace.
    7 Power and peace will be in his kingdom
    and will continue to grow forever.
    He will rule as king on David’s throne
    and over David’s kingdom.
    He will make it strong
    by ruling with justice and goodness
    from now on and forever.
    The Lord All-Powerful will do this
    because of his strong love for his people.

    SUMMARY
    A birth of God’s Son is announced.
    This Son will establish a kingdom.
    Power and peace will be in the kingdom of the Son.
    His kingdom will grow forever.
    The Son will make His kingdom strong.
    The Son will rule forever by justice and goodness.
    =========================================
    On December 25th the birth of the Son is celebrated.
    Believers should not fail to recognize the birth of the Son is also the first event in establishing the everlasting kingdom which grows forever.
    ========================================
    SUMMARY APLIED TO THE CHURCH
    This kingdom of the Son is the ekklesia or those “called out” from among the nations.
    In the English Bibles the Greek word ekklesia is translated “church.”
    Therefore, it is the Church that the Son established.
    The Son will rule the Church forever by justice and goodness.
    Power and peace will be in the Church of the Son.
    The Son will make the Church strong.
    The Church of the Son will grow forever.
    Rejoice in the Son!
