The Coming of Chirst
I am going to interrupt the series on I Corinthians Chapter Twelve to share with you “The Coming of
The coming of Christ was the most anticipated event in all history for the believers. Ever since the fall of
man in Genesis man has been looking forward to the coming Redeemer. It starts in Genesis 3:15.
Genesis 3:15 (KJV)
15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise
thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
This is the Lord God talking to Adam and what He is saying is that the devil will hurt the Coming
Redeemer, BUT, the Coming Redeemer will destroy him, the devil. Also, if you know biology you know
that the woman supplies the egg and the male supplies the seed. Why God says “her seed” is that He
knew way back then that a woman, one woman, would come to the place where she would/could say
“be it unto me according to thy word” and God would create in her the seed that would fertilize the egg
and bring forth the Messiah. How do I know this? Because the Bible tells me so.
Hebrews 2:14 (KJV)
14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he (Jesus Christ) also
himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the
power of death, that is, the devil;
Jesus didn’t partake, he “took part.” The part that he took was the flesh. The seed supplies the blood
and the egg supplies the flesh! That is why Jesus Christ was able to save us from our sins and that is why
Judas said “I have betrayed THE innocent blood.”
Colossians 1:21-22 (KJV)
21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath
22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his
This Jesus that had been sought throughout the ages this Jesus that was born in a manger was called:
Emmanuel, God with us, in Isaiah 7:14 and in Matthew 1:23
Isaiah 7:14 (KJV)
14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and
shall call his name Immanuel.
Redeemer, because he paid the ultimate price to for you and for me, Isaiah 59:20.
Isaiah 59:20 (KJV)
20 And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the
LORD.He is the Ruler of Israel that should come out of Bethlehem. Micah 5:2
Micah 5:2 (KJV)
2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee
shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from
He is the Messiah, the anointed one, the High Priest forever.
Daniel 9:25 (KJV)
25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to
build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince…
Jesus Christ was the Messiah, the High Priest as explained in Hebrews.
Hebrews 6:20 (KJV)
20 Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of
Jesus Christ is called the “Saviour,” he is called the “Branch,” He is called the “Seed of David.” Men and
women for thousands of years looked for the coming of Jesus in the stars and in the scriptures.
Matthew 2:1-2 (KJV)
1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there
came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
2 Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and
are come to worship him.
1 Peter 1:10-12 (KJV)
10 Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the
grace that should come unto you:
11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify,
when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.
12 Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things,
which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy
Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.
Even the angels wanted to know about Christ! That is why in Luke chapter two the angels brought good
tidings. They were as excited as the wise men that rejoiced with exceeding great joy! The Messiah, the
Redeemer, Christ the Lord had finally come! For thousands of years he was foretold, for thousands of
years he was anticipated and finally he was delivered of Mary. Shout HALLELUYAH! REJOICE WITH
EXCEEDING GREAT JOY, BECAUSE CHRIST THE LORD IS COME!
Throughout the generations of Old Testament Believers they looked forward to what Christ would
accomplish! WE, WE, WE look back at what he accomplished. WE ARE REDEEMED! Jesus Christ is our
lord and our brother and because of HIM and what HE accomplished we are now SONS OF GOD!Galatians 3:13-14 (KJV)
13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed
is every one that hangeth on a tree:
14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive
the promise of the Spirit through faith.
1 Peter 1:18-21 (KJV)
18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from
your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
20 Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times
21 Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith
and hope might be in God.
Romans 8:29 (KJV)
29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son,
that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
1 John 3:2 (KJV)
2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that,
when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
Galatians 4:6-7 (KJV)
6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba,
7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
So, shout it loud not only on December 25th, but, every day of the year. JESUS CHRIST IS COME!
