The Season for Jesus

Wednesday December 21, 2011

Want to think outside the box? Listen as Pastor Dwight explains the role of God’s creation of man (Adam and Eve) with the birth of Jesus Christ. Texts: Gen. 1:26 ff; Matt. 1 and 2; Luke 1 and 2. God breathed life into Adam and gave him His glory and authority over the earth, but Adam didn’t stop Eve when she listened to the devil, nor did he take authority during the attack of the enemy, so the earth was turned over to Satan. Adam was created, but Jesus was the Son. What Adam lost, Jesus redeemed back to God by something greater than the Abrahamic covenant. Jesus ruled and reigned as a man on earth. He listened to God. [Whoever you listen to is your authority.] Jesus died as God on behalf of man, therefore solidifying His covenant with man. Jesus’ early life somewhat paralleled the Israelites- going to Egypt and coming back to take over the land. God’s will toward you is peaceful. God’s truth disciplines and teaches us. Jesus came to be our example. Don’t let Satan kill, steal, and destroy you. Rom. 5:1-4 tells us that we have been justified because Jesus came. We can glory in tribulation, because we are victorious. Offering message: Speak over the seed you give. Speak to your bank accounts, investments, etc., so your needs are met. Don’t negate your increase by speaking curses.
