We Wait For Him

Posted by galenamissions in Uncategorized
Isaiah 25:9  It will be said on that day, "Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, that he might save us. This is the LORD; we have waited for him; let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation."

What are you waiting for right now? A better job? Better marriage? Better health? Are you waiting for circumstances to be different or a different outcome to events in your life? When all is done, Isaiah 25:9 tells us we won't be declaring those things. We'll be declaring "BEHOLD! This is our GOD!" God is the Gospel. Want to learn how to make it through this life? Learn to wait on Him.

Unto Us a Child Is Born

Posted by galenamissions in Christmas
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given. Isaiah 9:6

Imagine you were the only person in the world with the ability to see. How would you tell people about the sun? It's the same challenge that Christians have speaking the Gospel into Christmas time in a world that does not know him. God works to bring His joy to the nations. How does he do that? Through (1) freeing us from sin, (2) granting victory over the war of our flesh, (3) exchanging His Son for us. Today I ask you the question, "Has Christ been born unto you?"

O Come Emmanuel

Posted by galenamissions in Uncategorized

The Sign of Emmanuel was what some scholars call a duel prophesy. We so often only think of it in the context of it's fulfillment in Jesus. But it had an earlier fulfillment as well, with King Ahaz. (Read Isaiah 7 and 8) Emmanuel for the Christian mean's joy, salvation, Christmas! For Ahaz it meant judgement, war, rebellion. It mean's that for the Christian too. The JOY of Christmas is mingled with the BRUTALITY of the cross. This is why we sing in joyful sorrow, "O come o come Emmanuel".
