Christmas 2019

The message on December 22, 2019 was about Christmas.  Wayne will be on holiday next weekend so this was the last message of 2019.  We looked at John 1:1-3 "1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made." and discussed that God is not a created being.  From this passage, we learn that God became Man so he could redeem man so Christ is the one mediator between God and man, being the God-Man.   We then covered the timing of the Lord...

Fathers House

The message on December 16, 2018 was entitled "In My Father's House" and it was a one off message by Wayne Stewart before he and his family take a Christmas break in New Zeland for the next two weeks.  In this message, we look at the passage in John at the end of chapter 13 when Simon Peter promises to lay his life down for Jesus... and the Lord warning him in verse 38 "...Verily, verily, I say unto thee, The cock shall not crow, till thou hast denied me thrice."  This gives the context for chapter 14 and the famous verse that most Christians memorize in John 14:6 "Jesus saith unto him, I...

The fullness of the time - Christmas

The lesson on December 20, 2015 was a Christmas message looking at the fullness of the time.  When celebrating Christmas, we should acknowledge the fact that God became flesh and dwelt among us when he declared in the fullness of time God sent forth His Son that we might receive the adoption of sons. There are many passages that speak to the fullness that we receive when we accept Christ as our savior and through right division, we can appreciate this even more as members of His body, where Christ is the head.  Listen to this lesson for Christmas so you may be filled with all spiritual...

Christmas 2014

The lesson on December 21, 2014 was on Christmas. This message studied how the Word existed before anything was created, is God and then became flesh and tabernaceled with us.  Christ was born of the virgin Mary without the sin inheritance from Adam passed onto every human at conception.  Since Christ Jesus was conceived of the Holy Spirit, he was born without original sin.  He lived a sinless life and gave up his life so we may live, if we accept the gift that God gave us in his Son. The scripture reading was from Luke 1:1-4 KJV "1 Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in...

X-mas

The message on December 22, 2013 was a break from the Ephesians study and celebrated Christmas time. We learned the correct interpretation of the phrase "Xmas" which turns out that it isn't a modern convention at all. It was used commonly in 16th-century Europe, when many people began using the term "Christos," the Greek translation for Christ, to refer to Jesus. The letter chi in the Greek alphabet is symbolized by an X and translates to "ch." So along with the Greek letter rho for "r", the term Xmas was used to refer to the birth of Jesus as an informed abbreviation, not an offensive one...
