As we enter the Holiday Season, there is no better time to look at the crucifixion of Christ. Christmas is not about a cuddly baby in a manager scene (although I have mine out also). Its about God fulfilling Prophesy, and showing us that HE will do what HE says HE will do. THe plan of GOD to redeem us, and save us from certain death, eternal torment, from our wicked ways. No greater love, huh?
Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, for unto us a son is given…
Luke 2: 4-7 the baby is born..
Isaiah 52: 13-15, 53 He will be lifted up, HE will be beat and unrecognisable, dispised, crushed for our inquities, punishment that brought us peace will be upon HIM, by HIS wounds we are healed…like a sheep to the slaughter..no words of rebellion, no words of deceit..God’s will to crush HIM for our sin..redemption is promised…
John 19:30 “it is finished”
Oh Dear one, let this settle down into the very depths of your heart. Long before your family tree was a seedling, you were chosen by the King of Kings, and if you are struggling with believing GOD in your life for whatever you are needing..or whatever HE said that you feel in not applied to you..God always comes through, and HE is believable…HE did what HE said in this chapter of John, and HE will do everything that HE has said…So many read this and say, “How barbaric!” but the prophesy needed to be fulfilled..Because God does what HE says..and there is truly no greater love than this.
As we celebrate the coming holidays, remember it was the Prophesy beginning to unfold, there is not alot of prophesy to unfold yet, but make no mistake, it will. And Jesus will return for the ones who believe, the ones the Father has already given to HIM, and the crucifixion will show the great need we have had all along for this prophesy to be fulfilled. Thank you Jesus for being obedient even to death on a cross..and being the Way the Truth and the Life…Precious!
(please read through the scripture listed above, as I have only given a summary of each..be blessed…HE loves you so! please read the other entries of this chapter in the “Carl’s Blogged Bible Study” Peace)

Great thoughts. I pray Jesus will come sooner as opposed to later.
Christmas is a very important time for Christians. However, I agree that the end result of the birth of the KING far more important…
John 19:30 “it is finished” Possibly the three most selfless, loving words ever spoken….
Great post, love ya babe
God sending a the redeemer as a Baby… So innocent, stays innocent in front of Pilot, until he takes on all of our guilt and shame…
Peace and love sister.

I SO needed to read that! Thank you, Darla! Thank. You. 😉
“Long before your family tree was a seedling, you were chosen by the King of Kings…”
What a beautiful turn of phrase!!
God knew me before King David was born!
God knew me before Abraham was chosen.
God knew me before Adam was created.
I am chosen in the Beloved as beloved.
Archie- thanks for stopping by, hope you will come back again.
Praise- the baby in a manager is huge! I do like to look at a bigger picture..LOL can’t help it! 😉
CK- Amen! What a strange way to save the world…more of “His ways are not mine”
Nor- that is what always brings me back around..I need to know and believe that what HE says, HE will do…no one or nothing will stop HIM.
Dale- we are chosen…yup that makes me want to do a happy dance…glad you got away from that turkey holding you hostage! 😉
” Long before your family tree was a seedling, you were chosen by the King of Kings…”
I love this quote.. can I steal it? 🙂 It can’t be stealing if I ask, right? Love you!
The baby is born… IT IS FINISHED…. the Gospel in 7 words 😆
I replied before seeing the comments – looks like Dale had the same reaction I did about that quote… 🙂
😆 you both can use it!
Yeah! I totally love this! Remembering Jesus in this time and just how God’s plan unfolded greatly. Not to focus on presents or gift but how God is expressing his Love to us in a much greater way beyond what we can comprehend
and read an article about the full Gospel and God’s purpose in Christ coming to earth
Amen Darla! Great stuff here.
I posted on the prophecy too! 🙂 I usually wait to read Bible Study blogs ’til I write – that way I’m not influenced to write one way or the other. I love your heart, Darla. 🙂 You’re a keeper!
