Do You Know Him (Jesus) ()Dr. Sylvester Williams, December 7, 2014
People have started calling everything the " holiday season ". They have taken the Christmas out of the season. There is no where in the Bible that says that Jesus was born on December 25th, but this is a time we celebrate. Jesus was born during one of the feasts. Christ Jesus was the lamb with out blemish, He was the sacrifice to save us from the world. Do you truly believe? To know Him is to love Him, to love Him is to truly know Him. Do you really want to be with Him? What is more important to you more than your life? When you have made up in your mind that you are for Him you will be with Him.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe 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,
good will toward men.
And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.
Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:
All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
A Psalm of David.
? The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
If ye love me, keep my commandments.
So teach us to number our days,
that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith. And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.
