Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed. 2) For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, and as a root out of dry ground. He has no form or comeliness; and when we see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him. Isaiah 53: 1,2
Seven hundred years before the Lord Jesus Christ was born, Isaiah the prophet wrote a biography of Jesus. If you read Isaiah 53 with an open heart, you will be convinced of three things: 1) the inspiration of Scripture, 2) Christ is fully God and fully man, and 3) Christ is the promised Messiah.
The “arm of the LORD” means God’s mighty power, and it is a person. We look for something mighty, and we see a tender plant—this pictures the birth of Jesus. Jesus is totally man, and totally God. He did not begin in Bethlehem. Jesus is not the Son of God because He was born of a virgin; He was born of a virgin because He is the Son of God.
This week at City Bible Church we continue in our journey through John. In chapter 4, we see that the Samaritan woman at the well discovers what worship is… ‘It’s all about Him’. We look forward to gathering together at 10:30 Sunday morning for worship around His Word.
Sunday night at 7 PM we will see the second half of ‘Why the Nativity’ a docudrama from Dr. David Jeremiah. This exceptional production brings the incarnation of Christ in great detail and quality.
Wednesday Matt and Sandra begin a new Bible study. We will begin with a ‘Character Study on Samuel’. It all starts at 7 PM at the church.
You can join us ‘From the Pastor’s Study’ after 9 AM on Sunday… YouTube/ City Bible Church SSM
As we move further away from ‘Covid Lock Down’, I am thinking it may be time to bring our online presence to an end. But that depends on you. I don’t have any idea who is watching, or even reading these emails. As I seek the Lord’s direction over the next couple of weeks, would you pray with me. I would appreciate hearing from you.
Glory to God in the highest…
