“Righteous Walk Though Barren”

December 10, 2019

“Righteous Walk Though Barren”

Blessings folk!

Luke’s account of the birth of Jesus begins with a lead-in story.

Luk 1:5-7

In the days of Herod, king of Judea, there was a priest named Zacharias, of the division of Abijah; and he had a wife from the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elizabeth.

They were both righteous in the sight of God,
walking blamelessly in all the commandments and requirements of the Lord.

But they had no child, because Elizabeth was barren, and they were both advanced in years.


Zacharias
Elizabeth

A priest.
His wife.

Both were of priestly lineage.

Both were righteous before God.
Both walked blameless in all the commandments of the Lord.
Both walked blameless as to the requirements of the Lord.

Yet, as to children, they were barren.

Too often when “barrenness” is in our life…lack of this/that…we assume it is because we have sinned…done something wrong, etc.

Perhaps it could be “to the praise of the glory of His grace.”

Though barren, they walked.

May we do likewise.

“The Exact Truth”

“The Exact Truth”

Blessings folk!

We continue reading the Scripture about the birth of Jesus.

On to Luke.

Luke states that he had a chronological purpose…

Luk 1:1-4

Inasmuch as many have undertaken to compile an account of the things
accomplished among us,

just as they were handed down to us by those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and servants of the word,

it seemed fitting for me as well, having investigated everything carefully from the beginning, to write it out for you in consecutive order, most excellent Theophilus;

so that you may know the exact truth about the things you have been taught.

Luke acknowledges that many had compiled accounts of the “things accomplished among us”…the things of Jesus.

Luke lets us know that he spoke with eyewitnesses and servants of “the word”.

He had heard the accounts from witnesses.

Therefore, he sought to investigate everything carefully from the beginning.
He sought to write it out for Theophilus.
He sought to write it “in consecutive order”.

Luke’s purpose?

So that Theophilus could know the exact truth about the things he had been taught.

Thus we have Luke (and Acts)!

Learn the exact truth…

“A Nazarene”

December 8, 2019

“A Nazarene”

Blessings folk!

Joseph was told by an angel of the Lord in a dream to take Mary as his wife.
He did.
Joseph was told by an angel of the Lord in a dream to take Mary and The Child to Egypt.
He did.
Joseph was told by an angel of the Lord in a dream to return to Israel with Mary and The Child.
He did.

We saw yesterday that those who wanted to harm Jesus were now dead.
It was safe to return from Egypt.

Mat 2:19-20

But when Herod died, behold,
an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt, and said,

“Get up, take the Child and His mother, and go into the land of Israel;
for those who sought the Child’s life are dead.”


But…now…

Mat 2:21-23

So Joseph got up, took the Child and His mother, and came into the land of Israel.

But when he heard that Archelaus was reigning over Judea in place of his father Herod,
he was afraid to go there.
Then after being warned by God in a dream, he left for the regions of Galilee,

and came and lived in a city called Nazareth.
This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophets:
“He shall be called a Nazarene.”

When Joseph and his family arrived in the land of Israel, Archelaus was reigning.
Joseph feared returning to Judea.

The Lord knew.
He knew all along.

God again warned Joseph in a dream.
Apparently to not go to Judea.

Joseph and family went to Nazareth.
They lived there.
They fulfilled prophecy - “He shall be called a Nazarene.”

Observing the 330+ prophesies fulfilled by the Lord in His first coming is amazing.

How much more so His second coming…

“Angel: Go Into the Land of Israel”

December 7, 2019

“Angel: Go Into the Land of Israel”

Blessings folk!

The young boys of Ramah were killed in an attempt to eliminate Messiah.

Herod was enraged.

Herod eventually died.

The angel then fulfilled his promise…

Mat 2:19-21

But when Herod died,
behold, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt, and said,

“Get up, take the Child and His mother, and go into the land of Israel;
for those who sought the Child’s life are dead.”

So Joseph got up, took the Child and His mother, and came into the land of Israel.

The angel was succinct…
Get up.
Take the child.
Take His mother.
Go to the land of Israel.

Note, the “land of Israel”.
This will be importantly shortly.

Why now?

Because those who sought the Child’s life were dead.

What did Joseph do?

What he did each of the four times he was instructed in a dream.
He obeyed.
He got up.
He took the Child/Mother.
He came into the land of Israel.

But…
