"And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel."
(Genesis 3:15 KJV)
Though Jesus Christ was there during creation, God, through His Holy Bible, revealed slowly the coming of Jesus Christ to save man from His sins and to allow man a way to obtain eternal life with God in heaven. Over thousands of years, Our Awesome God gave us the promises and prophecies concerning Jesus Christ and what He would do for man.
Here are a few of them: 1) The Seed of the Woman found first in Genesis 3:15, predicted the virgin birth of our Savior. 2) The Seed of Abraham which is found in Genesis 12:1-13 kept God's people in the Abrahamic Covenant until it was fulfilled at the birth of Jesus Christ. 3) The Tribe of Judah narrowed the Savior to a certain tribe of Israel in Genesis 49:10. 4) The House of David was the family He was to be born into according to II Samuel 7:12,13. 5) The Son of a Virgin was prophesied in Isaiah 7:14. 6) The City of His Birth is found in Micah 5:2. 7) His Name is Revealed in Isaiah 7:14. 8) His Worship by the Gentiles is told in Isaiah 60:6. In His Holy Bible, Our Awesome God told us how, when, and where Jesus Christ would be born.
Can you imagine the excitement of those who had put all of the promises and prophecies together? Those that understood He would bring salvation to the Gentiles? The kings from the orient bearing three gifts travelled far to find Jesus Christ because they knew. Our Awesome God had controlled all the events so that each one happened as He planned it. God revealed why, what, when and how it should happen to provide us with the best of everything.
Our Awesome God keeps His promises and prophecies even after thousands of years. Is He your God? If not, you need to be sure you want to lose your place in heaven. Because heaven is for those who accept Christ as God's only begotten Son and believe in Him. Read your Bible!
Come join us at LWBC as we work in Our Awesome God's vineyard, telling others about His Story, Jesus Christ's Salvation, and our eternal home with Him, trying to help them and ourselves to understand Our Creator better.
