Very quickly I will be sharing what I learnt yesterday in church. The sermon topic was actually: The King Is Born.
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.”
I learnt yesterday that Jesus fulfilled at least sixty prophecies concerning him; which were given hundred of years before he even came.
This morning, I saw something in verse 7: “…of the increase of His government and peace, there shall be no end…?
It just occurred to me while typing this, that yes indeed, of all the names of known people, celebrities, martyrs, heroes etc….the name Jesus is one which agreeable has survived different times and seasons and generations…People change, their ways differ, technology came, era of the internet….all of these has served one purpose and is still serving one purpose: To propagate the name Jesus, who he is and what he did on earth. His kingdom has no end!
In the words of Rev. Eweje, I am going to reiterate: Do you by chance still think Jesus and the idea of heaven is only a fable? A kind of children story told from generation to generation because it sounds grand and out of this world? Pick a bible and begin to study, from the old testament up until the birth and death of Jesus…hard written facts, dated even before your conception was thought of, is proof like no other of the existence of the personality called Jesus.
The King is born! Born to reign forevermore! Jesus, the King is born!
Jesus, the man who invented eternal salvation. Awesome!
Have a great day!
