Dell DELL career and the King's hair of those. Good. Well. See you. Could Where was he. What was he. Here now is eight Gemma's Richards a Seventh Day Adventist minister with a special message for this season is subject we beheld His glory. Those are the words of the Apostle John we beheld His glory let us read the entire passage now as recorded in John one fourteen and the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us and we beheld his glory the glory as of the only big gotten of the Father full of grace and truth. When the Apostle John sat down to write those words he knew what he was doing he knew what he had seen he was an eye witness and he declared that the Holy Word was WITH God in the beginning and that all things were made by him and that the Word was God then he made this astounding statement the Word was made flesh the word became a human being. God became man and we beheld His glory we saw it full of grace and truth that was the glory of Christ the glory of Sinai and the glory of Calvary God's truth on the mountain of the law God's love on Calvary's cross it was all in Jesus he revealed it and this day recognized around the world and memorialized as the day of his birth reminds us of these wonderful things now the average person takes for granted that Christ was born the twenty fifth of December of course careful students are quite sure that he was not born in that day they are not agreed as to just twenty was born some favor a springtime birthday some an autumn birthday possibly more the latter than the former we even find some people so taken up with their arguments against the birth of Christ on December twenty five that they seem to have forgotten that he was born at all I have read long articles and longer pamphlets giving proof upon proof against the December twenty five birthday date and their arguments do seem to be quite sound although we do not know the exact date of his birth we do know that he had a birthday that he was born and that was the biggest news that the world had ever heard Christ was born he came he fulfilled the prophecies that pointed forward to his birth for hundreds and hundreds of years yes for thousands of years man had wanted to know what God was like now they could know for the apostle tells us that God was in Christ reconciling the world unto himself so I can Corinthians five nineteen there are many people today who celebrate the twenty fifth of December you have shown no honor for Christ Himself there are a few who acknowledge Him as their Savior who honor him by willing O.B.D.. As to his service they show preference to the day but none to the one for whom the Day is celebrated Jesus Christ its observance has become customary and popular but yet there is no certainty that we're keeping a veritable day of our Savior's birth history gives us no certain assurance of this and the Bible does not give us the precise time had the Lord deemed as knowledge essential to our salvation he would have spoken through His prophets and apostles that we might all know about the matter but the silence of the Scriptures upon this point evidence is to us that it is hidden from us for the wisest purposes as Christmas comes each year we find on the one hand some who put modern advertising into high gear to make Christmas a real commercial explosion on the other hand Christians rise up and declare that the day is becoming pagan eyes and they urge everyone to put Christ back into Christmas we hear a lot about what is wrong with Christmas but let's consider for just a few minutes what's right about it I do not mean of course the date the twenty fifth of December but the wonderful truth of Christ's birth into this world for one thing nothing greater are more wonderful could ever have happened to this world of ours think of it the very same angels who were in the beginning sang creation story now proclaim Messiah as birth let us read the beautiful story just as it was written by the hand of one of the world's most able writers Dr Luke and Joseph also went up from Galilee out of the city of Nazareth into Judaea under the City of David which is called Bethlehem to be taxed with Mary has espoused wife being great with child and so it was that while they were there the days were accomplished that she should be delivered and she brought forth her first born son and wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger because there was no room for them in the end and they were in the same. Shepherds abiding in the field keeping watch over their flock by night and lo the angel of the Lord came upon them and the glory of the Lord shone round about them and they were sort of frayed and the angel said into them fear not for behold I bring you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all people for under you is born this day in the City of David a savior which is Christ the Lord and there shall be a sign on to you he shall find a baby wrapped in swaddling clothes lying in a manger and suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace goodwill to man. All the history of the world from the creation clear up to the night of Christ's birth and everything that has followed since grows out of this he was born to marry the Virgin and God was his father. And his incarnation Christ became what he was not before he took upon himself a human bodily form and accepted the limitations of human bodily life thus deity was wedded to humanity and one person as he became the one and only God man. This is basic to our faith the vicarious atoning death of Christ on the cross was the inevitable outgrowth of this primary provision. God gave Jesus to us for God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life he is ours for ever in taking our nature the Savior has bound himself to humanity by a tire that is never to be broken for the first time men could actually know what God was like. On a hillside in the mountains of New Guinea I once spoke to a clan of war by. Eg warriors who had never heard the name of Christ they never heard the story of his birth with their weapons in their hands they listened as I pointed to the mountains the clouds the sun and said these are not your god your god made them then I explained how he was afraid. That we would not understand him by looking at these things which he had made so he came himself he was born as a babe and grew up among us and we beheld His glory we saw his purity his love a nice power and His grace and His truth I told of his death for those who hated him for all sinners in other words for us I shall never forget the tears that made photos for the war paint on their faces Yes this is The Greatest Story Ever Told how that God was in Christ reconciling the world unto himself just as the endless process of birth is the perpetual answer of life to the fact of death so the birth of Christ his life his death his resurrection and his ascension are God's answer to all our sorrows sins sufferings and disappointments God's greatest gift a man was his son his child a prosperous business man once asked Lee Mitchell Hodges you know what I'm going to give my boy for Christmas expecting to be some costly present Hodges was surprised when the man handed him a paper which was written to my dear son I give you one hour of each week day and two hours of my sadness to be you do you wish your father the greatest gift that any man can give yet a gift that every father owes his son is something of himself some of these times some of his life consider what God has given us notice now several important things about the birth of our Savior first Jesus was born that holy thing it was the angel Gabriel who came to announce his birth instead of the Virgin Mother the Holy Ghost Secondly Pandi and the power of the highest still overshadowed. The therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of the shall be called a Son of God His birth was supernatural miraculous second Jesus was born a son of God Third he was born Emmanuel which means God with us forth Jesus was born king when the wise men came from the East to bring in their precious gifts they inquired Where is he that is born King and they were told of the Prophet said that he was to be born in Bethlehem Micah five to this one who was born king had existed from all eternity from everlasting as the prophet said yet now he was born as a human being to be the king of Israel five he was born to be a Savior and to you is born this day a savior six he was born the Christ the Messiah a savior which is Christ seven Jesus was born the Lord and he was born a Savior which is Christ the Lord he was born of the Holy Ghost without seeing it was born a son of God Emmanuel God with us he was born king is born of savior He was born the Messiah of the Old Testament the Christ of God He was born the Lord the only begotten Son of God This word of God this babe of Bethlehem Listen man of sorrows and acquainted with grief this risen Lord this coming King is your savior if you will having this is all true and gloriously true but is he your savior your Christ your king your Lord does he do well with you by His Holy Spirit does he find a lodging in your heart to day there was no room for him in the end of old but someone found a place for him probably the best they had and all they had so that he could be cradled in a manger open the door of your heart to him now and remember though Christ a thousand times in Bethlehem be born. If he's not born in Z. I so wish still for more. This could be the greatest day of the year the greatest day of your life if you would only open the door to him today on. Old. And. New. Logo do. Good in the end. So. Do. So. Slow to load the history you. Do. Oh it's. So. They were as close to a load. O. S. the as was and the as the as. A runner tail as. The logo. Was.
