Immanuel: God With Us ( by C.H Spurgeon)

“Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”
Isaiah 7:14

Let us today go down to Bethlehem, and in company with wondering shepherds and adoring Magi, let us see him who was born King of the Jews, for we by faith can claim an interest in him, and can sing, “Unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given.” Jesus is Jehovah incarnate, our Lord and our God, and yet our brother and friend; let us adore and admire. Let us notice at the very first glance his miraculous conception. It was a thing unheard of before, and unparalleled since, that a virgin should conceive and bear a Son. The first promise ran thus, “The seed of the woman,” not the offspring of the man. Since venturous woman led the way in the sin which brought forth Paradise lost, she, and she alone, ushers in the Regainer of Paradise. Our Saviour, although truly man, was as to his human nature the Holy One of God. Let us reverently bow before the holy Child whose innocence restores to manhood its ancient glory; and let us pray that he may be formed in us, the hope of glory. Fail not to note his humble parentage. His mother has been described simply as “a virgin,” not a princess, or prophetess, nor a matron of large estate. True the blood of kings ran in her veins; nor was her mind a weak and untaught one, for she could sing most sweetly a song of praise; but yet how humble her position, how poor the man to whom she stood affianced, and how miserable the accommodation afforded to the new-born King!

Immanuel, God with us in our nature, in our sorrow, in our lifework, in our punishment, in our grave, and now with us, or rather we with him, in resurrection, ascension, triumph, and Second Advent splendour.

Babe Born to Die ( by Fenny West)

Babe Born Jesus His birth His presence christmas joy3 christmas joy2 winter wonderland winter 1 - Copy God's plan I am with You always

 

 

 

This babe was born to die,

That you and I might live.

And for those who love Him,

He prays; daily intercedes.

Even now His blood cries:

‘I died for them to live.

Those who repent and come to Me,

I accept, forgive and life-eternal give.

’ May your celebration

Be filled with His remembrance

His joy and adoration;

His life and abundance.

His wisdom and discretion;

His peace, surpassing knowledge;

His provision and direction;

His protection and presence.

Journey of Jesus

From Heaven to Cross

Was full of trials

Many denials

From the humble birth

To acceptance dearth

From good standing

To misunderstanding.

But He persevered

Great cruelty endured

To bring and secure

Sin’s solution; cure.

His body was scourged

Was falsely accused

To buy humankind

Because God was kind                                

He was made a curse

So that He could bless

All humanity

For eternity.

He was born to die

Just to bring us nigh

He stooped down so low

To let freedom flow.

Post crucifixion

Was resurrection

All for you and I

So we will not die.

The deal that was done

By God, Lord ,the Son

Is free but by choice

If you hear His Voice

Make Him your Choice Now!

Gal4:1-7

4      But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law,

5      to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. Gal4:4-5
