"And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:"
(Luke 1:31-32 KJV)
Our Awesome God does the impossible! A virgin pregnant! He loves man enough to send His Son to a poor girl of about 16 years old to raise and love. "Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel" (Isaiah 7:14 KJV). This sign, usually interpreted as a miracle or unusual event, is describing a virgin conception and, through her, God will be all human and all God. God could have chosen anyone but she had to have the right bloodlines in King David's family and the right attitude (willingness) to raise God's Son. Jesus Christ, God's son was born in a stable to a poor young girl who had to learn how to care for a child and not in a castle with wealth. Mary was betrothed to, and later married, a carpenter who was poor, so Jesus was raised a carpenter's son who probably was never taught to read or write.
Our Awesome God plans everything carefully to fulfill His purposes as He did with sending His Son and our Savior into this world of sin. He had started before creation (1 Peter 1:20) and was mentioned first in Genesis 3:15, where He cursed the serpent. His prophets had prophesied of Jesus Christ coming as a Savior 700 years before He was born (Isaiah 7:14) and in Isaiah 9:6 it says the "government shall be upon His shoulders". Because God loves you, He sent Jesus Christ to save anyone who would believe in Him and obey His laws from the rich to the poor and from the powerful to the slave. Are you a Christian?
Our Awesome God gave us a way to avoid going to the "bottomless pit" with Satan. He sent Jesus Christ to teach and show people how we should live and become the "sons of God". Jesus came to us for all to live in heaven, if we will. But He came as a baby who was born of a virgin mother, and He had the same pain and hurts that we do as He grew to manhood. He is God's Son!!
We would love to tell you about Our Awesome God and His Son, Jesus Christ, and how to become a child of God. If you are already a Christian, we always need Christian teachers and new ideas in presenting Our Awesome God to others. Our church starts with small groups on Sunday at 9:30 AM and Worship Service at 10:30 AM. On Sunday evening at 6:00 PM, a Bible Study meets for an hour along with a children's program called AWANA. Wednesday evening is Prayer Meeting at 7:00 PM. We love visitors!
