What are the chances that one man, Jesus, could fulfill Old Testament prophecies about the coming Messiah? Pretty slim! Someone has calculated it this way.
Jesus Christ came in fulfillment, not of just eight prophecies, but of Every prophecy. There are as many as 365 prophecies that foretold Jesus as the Messiah. Wow! That is solid evidence to support Jesus’ claim that He was no ordinary man, that He is in fact one with the Father. Jesus Christ is God the Son!
Gotquestions.org explains it this way, “The doctrine of eternal Sonship simply affirms that the second Person of the triune Godhead has eternally existed as the Son. In other words, there was never a time when He was not the Son of God, and there has always been a Father/Son relationship within the Godhead. This doctrine recognizes that the idea of Sonship is not merely a title or role that Christ assumed at some specific point in history, but that it is the essential identity of the second Person of the Godhead. According to this doctrine, Christ is and always has been the Son of God.”
This Sunday, December 4, we will begin our Christmas teaching series, “Old Testament Prophecies of Christ!” with the amazing truth that Jesus would be “Born of a Virgin: His Divinity!” He is no mere man; He is God in the flesh! Please invite someone to join you at 10:35am either in the building or online for the Live broadcast on either Facebook (Honolulu AG) or our YouTube channel (Honolulu Assembly of God). We Livestream every Sunday to both locations.
Coming up this Saturday: Our 11th annual Christmas Lunch and Treasure Trade for women and girls happens at 11:30am. (Set up is on Thursday beginning at 10am.) December’s Drive-Thru Prayer outreach is 1-3pm this Saturday.
A Big Mahalo goes out to everyone who decorated the building last Sunday for Christmas. Everything looks beautiful! And thanks to those who prepared the delicious lunch for everyone.
Aloha ke Akua!
