ANOTHER WORLD
(A Christmas Study)

Ancient Nortonian Proverb #256: The Son of God was born the Son of Man so that any son of man might become a son of God.

Ancient Nortonian Proverbs II #5: Just a couple of questions: Where would you be if Jesus had not been born; and, where should you be because He was?

Isa 9:6-7
6 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.
7 Of the increase of his government

DEFINITION

Sometimes the words come like a swiftly flowing river…sometimes they trickle as a stream.  And when I am walking in the silent forest of my youth...I can't help but go back!  What would I change if I could?  But I can't change anything!  Faces and memories, voices and lost things, they are companions of mine.  And though they would stalk me...at times try to haunt me...they have failed to define me!  I am more than my past...more than my failures...more than the pain.  I stand!  I shine!  I live, not in the remorse of long gone opportunities, but in the hope, yea the surety, of a new day! For great is thy faithfulness O Lord!

ADULTERY

A CHRISTIAN MARRIAGE IS MORE THAN A CONTRACT OF CIVIL JOINING. IT IS A COVENANT OF SPIRITUAL UNION

THE IDEAL MARRIAGE PATTERN
Gen 2:20-25
20      So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him.
21      And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs,

BECOMING RADICAL

I'm getting older. No denying that. A lot of things have changed and there is still change to come, but through it all the voice of God has carried me, sustained me and, above all, it has taught me. I am not the same as I was when Christ became my Savior and Lord. 

Isa 28:9-10
9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned

MY FATHER’S SON

Problem: We are religiously taught as sons of men to be servants of God.  Biblically speaking, we should be taught and trained as born again sons of God called and anointed to be servants of men

There is a huge difference between the position and attitude of a servant and that of a son:
1/Servants’ quarters or house of the Father
2/Serve temporarily or abide eternally
3/Ordered to do or asked if you would

The simple truth: John 8:35 And the servant

COLORS

It is truly amazing that his familiar brethren can’t enjoy the power and glory of the gift for their discovering the weakness of the man while the redeemed stranger and even the unregenerate Egyptian are blinded to

THAT WE MIGHT RECOGNIZE HIM
AS HE IS

As the Agent of creation by Him we all exist (Col 1:16-17)
As the Son of God He is the preexistent Son that was given (Isa 9:6).  He blessed us, chose us, predestinated us and accepted us in Himself before the foundation of the world (Eph 1:3-6)
As the Son of Man He is the Child that was born to us (Isa 9:6; Luke 2:11), grew to manhood under His earthly parents (Luke 2:42-52; Matt 1:20); Luke 3:23), was

THE END POINT

The prophetic Voice to Abraham established Israel…and later the prophetic Voice projected Israel's fall. The Old Testament prophets, by God's Voice through them, established the coming of the Messiah to His own, and that same Voice

PROGRESSIVISM

Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool (Isa 1:18).

We have gotten much spiritual mileage out of the above verse, painting our sins as flaming scarlet and the deepest crimson, deserving hell fire for sure, but then turning them white as snow: forgiven and washed away by the Word of God.  Good mileage.  Good preaching for sure.  But I wonder if the verse could not just as well refer to
