Sermon

Galatians 4:4-5

But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, 5 to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship. (NIV)

 

 

WHO WAS THIS CHILD?

 

 

JESUS WAS FULLY GOD

 

Hebrews 13:8

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. (NIV)

 

JESUS DID NOT CHANGE WHO HE WAS TO BE BORN OF A WOMAN

 

HE MADE THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH

 

HIS WAYS ARE HIGHER THAN OURS

 

HE SITS OUTSIDE OF TIME

 

HE IS THE ETERNAL ONE

——————

 

 

Hebrews 2:17

For this reason he had to be made like them, fully human in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people (NIV)

 

JESUS WAS FULLY HUMAN

 

HE WAS BORN A BABY

 

HE HAD DIRTY DIAPERS

 

HE HAD TO LEARN HOW TO CRAWN, THEN WALK

 

HE HAD TO CLEAN HIS ROOM

 

ETC.

 

HE WAS FULLY HUMAN

 

——————

 

THE THEOLOGICAL TERM FOR THE ESSENCE OF CHRIST, BORN OF A WOMAN IS HYPOSTASIS

 

Philippians 2:5-8

5 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:

6 Who, being in very nature God,

did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;

7 rather, he made himself nothing

by taking the very nature of a servant,

being made in human likeness.

8 And being found in appearance as a man,

he humbled himself

by becoming obedient to death —

even death on a cross! (NIV)

 

JESUS EMPTIED HIMSELF OF HIS HEAVENLY PREROGATIVE

 

HE WAS EQUAL WITH GOD

HE WAS NOT LESSER ON EARTH THAN IN HEAVEN

HE WAS NO LESS GOD IN HUMAN FORM THAN HE WAS CREATING THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH

WHY?

 

 

JESUS HAD TO BE FULLY HUMAN

 

BECAUSE GOD IS A JUST GOD

MAN HAD TO BE PUNISHED FOR HIS SIN

 

WHEN ADAM SINNED, EVERYONE WAS PUNISHED

ALL THE EVIL WE HAVE TODAY IS BECAUSE OF ONE BITE OF A PIECE OF FRUIT

 

IT SEEMS SO HARSH

HOW CAN A LOVING GOD DO THIS

 

 

1 Corinthians 15:44-49

If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. 45 So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit. 46 The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual. 47 The first man was of the dust of the earth; the second man is of heaven. 48 As was the earthly man, so are those who are of the earth; and as is the heavenly man, so also are those who are of heaven. 49 And just as we have borne the image of the earthly man, so shall we bear the image of the heavenly man. (NIV)

 

 

GOD ALLOWED SIN TO ENTER INTO EVERY SOUL BY ONE MAN

SO THAT, BY ONE MAN, ALL OF MAN COULD BE REDEEMED

 

THE WRATH OF GOD IS SHROUDED IN THE MERCY OF GOD

 

————-

JESUS HAD TO BE FULLY GOD

 

BECAUSE GOD IS A JUST GOD

TO BE REDEEMED, MAN HAD TO BE PERFECT

 

JESUS HAD TO BE PERFECT, WITHOUT SIN

 

Galatians 4:4-5

But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, 5 to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship. (NIV)

 

HE HAD TO BE PERFECT UNDER THE LAW

 

AFTER ADAM, FROM THE TIME OF CONCEPTION, MAN WAS SINFUL

 

NO REGULAR HUMAN COULD HAVE EVER LIVED PERFECT UNDER THE LAW BECAUSE OF THE SIN NATURE INHERITED

 

THIS IS WHY THERE IS NO OTHER NAME IN HEAVEN OR ON EARTH GREATER THAN JESUS

 

BUT FOR JESUS

HAD IT NOT BEEN FOR JESUS COMING TO EARTH, THERE WOULD BE NO HOPE

 

NOW THERE IS HOPE

 

—————–

JESUS HAD TO BE BORN OF A VIRGIN

 

Genesis 3:14-15

14 So the LORD God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this,

“Cursed are you above all livestock

and all wild animals!

You will crawl on your belly

and you will eat dust

all the days of your life.

15 And I will put enmity

between you and the woman,

and between your offspring and hers;

he will crush your head,

and you will strike his heel.” (NIV)

 

THE SEED OF A WOMAN

A WOMAN DOES NOT HAVE SEED

MAN’S SEED IS SOWN INTO THE WOMAN’S EGG

GOD IS FORETELLING OF THE VIRGIN BIRTH

 

HAD HE BEEN BORN OF JOSEPH

HE WOULD HAVE BEEN SINFUL FROM BIRTH

 

PEOPLE WANT TO DENY THE VIRGIN BIRTH

PEOPLE WANT TO DENY JESUS WAS THE CHRIST

PEOPLE WANT TO DENY THERE IS A GOD

 

BUT THE BIBLE IS TRUE

CLEARLY THERE IS A CREATOR

CLEARLY MAN IS IN NEED OF REDEMPTION

CLEARLY MAN IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO REDEEM HIMSELF

 

IF MAN WAS EVER TO BE REDEEMED, THERE HAD TO BE A GOD WHO BECAME MAN

Hebrews 2:14-18

14 Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil — 15 and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death. 16 For surely it is not angels he helps, but Abraham’s descendants. 17 For this reason he had to be made like them, fully human in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people. 18 Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted. (NIV)

 

BY BEING FULLY HUMAN AND FULLY GOD, HE BROKE THE POWER OF SIN AN DEATH

 

WE ARE BORN AGAIN NOT FROM THE SEED OF ADAM, BUT THE SEED OF GOD

 

WE ARE NEW CREATION

 

THE POWER OF DEATH IS BROKEN
