The Life Of Jesus

The Life Of Jesus
2019 Easter Season
Sunday, April 7, 2019 – Pastor George M. Dupree
 
Over the next three weeks we’ll be looking at the Life of Jesus   We’ll start with some of the prophecies concerning His birth along with some of the events surrounding His birth.   Next we’ll take a brief look at His life and ministry up to the last week of His life on earth.   On Easter weekend we’ll look at the final days of His life concluded with the miraculous resurrection.   After Easter we’ll look at the events leading to the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost along with looking at the early church.
 
To begin with the birth of Jesus would be missing His eternal Deity so let’s take a look at that for a moment.
 
Genesis 1:26 Then God said, Let US make man in Our image, according to Our likeness…
 
Notice the word US – who’s the US that’s being referred to here?
 
We know from verse One that the Holy Spirit was part of that US
 
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
 
Interestingly in verse one the Hebrew word for God is Elohiym which means the Supreme God and Elohiym is a plural word.
 
So it’s understandable that with God and the Spirit plural is covered – but, is there more? Yes, there is.
 
Take a look at John’s Gospel…
 
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.
 
 
 
 
Who or what is the Word referred to here?
 
John 1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.   John 1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
 
We see that the life of Jesus really goes back to the beginning of everything but on Earth we mark His life at His birth.
 
His birth is described as miraculous, most especially because He was actually born of a virgin, that’s a miracle.
 
But there’s more to the miraculous birth of Jesus, and it’s found in the prophecies about him and His birth.
 
Here are two notable prophecies.
 
Michah 5:2 But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth to Me the One to be Ruler in Israel, whose goings forth are from of old, from everlasting.”
 
Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.
 
These prophecies were fulfilled and recorded in these Bible passages.
 
Matthew 1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. 19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not wanting to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly. 20 But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. 21 And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins.”   Matthew 1:22 So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: 23 “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”   Matthew 2:1 Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea…
 
 
There were several other prophecies from several different people from about 500 to 1000 years before the birth of Jesus.
 
Here are six more prophecies concerning the birth of Jesus, the Messiah.
 
1 – The Messiah would be from the lineage of King David. Jeremiah 23:5 600B.C.
Jesus … the son of David …” Luke 3:23, 31 – 4 B.C.
 
2 – The Messiah would be betrayed for 30 pieces of silver. Zechariah 11:13 – 487 B.C.   They gave him (Judas) thirty pieces of silver. Matthew 26:15 – 30 A.D.
 
3 – The Messiah would have his hands and feet pierced. Psalm 22:16 – 1000 B.C.
They came to a place called The Skull. All three were crucified there-Jesus on the center cross, and the two criminals on either side.” Luke 23:33 – 30 A.D.
 
4 – People would cast lots for the Messiah’s clothing. Psalm 22:18 – 1000 B.C.
The soldiers … took his robe, but it was seamless, woven in one piece from the top. So they said, ‘Let’s not tear it but throw dice to see who gets it.’ ” John 19:23-24 – 30 A.D.
 
5 – The Messiah would appear riding on a donkey. Zechariah 9:9 – 500 B.C.
They brought the donkey and the colt, laid their clothes on them, and seHim on them Matthew 21:7 – 30 A.D.
 
6 – A messenger would be sent to herald the Messiah. Malachi 3:1 – 500 B.C.
John told them, “I baptize with water, but right here in the crowd is someone you do not know.” John 1:26 – 27 A.D.
 
 
Professor of mathematics Peter Stoner gave 600 students a math probability problem that would determine the odds for one person fulfilling eight specific prophecies. First the students calculated the odds of one person fulfilling all the conditions of one specific prophecy, such as being betrayed by a friend for 30 pieces of silver. Then the students did their best to estimate the odds for all of the eight prophecies combined. The students calculated that the odds against one person fulfilling all eight prophecies are astronomical-one in ten to the 21st power. To illustrate that number, Stoner gave the following example: “First, blanket the entire Earth land mass with silver dollars 120 feet high. Second, specially mark one of those dollars and randomly bury it. Third, ask a person to travel the Earth and select the marked dollar, while blindfolded, from the trillions of other dollars.”¹
 
Stoner’s work was reviewed by the American Scientific Association, which stated, “The mathematical analysis … is based upon principles of probability which are thoroughly sound, and Professor Stoner has applied these principles in a proper and convincing way.

Uncluttered – Make Room For God

Uncluttered – Make Room For God
Sunday, March 17, 2019 – Pastor George M. Dupree
 
 
Sometimes our lives are packed with so much stuff to carry or to do that life becomes overweight. It becomes time to prioritize what’s important and necessary for me.
 
Our life can be packed with good stuff and bad stuff. I have to decide the value of the stuff and if I’m expecting God to ADD something of value into my life there needs to be room for it otherwise I can’t fit it. And it’s better to be prepared beforehand for what God is going to do.
 
Here’s The Secret To Success
 
Proverbs 3:6 (Living Bible) In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success.
 
Ephesians 4:31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of malicious behavior. 32 Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.
 
Bitterness – anger and disappointment at being treated unfairly
 
Rage – violent uncontrollable anger.
 
Anger – a strong feeling of annoyance, displeasure, or hostility
 
Slander – a false and malicious spoken statement that causes harm
 
Ephesians 4:32 Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.
 
Romans 12:14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. 16 Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion.
 
Romans 12:17 Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men. 18 If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. 19 Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. 20 Therefore “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; If he is thirsty, give him a drink; For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.” 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
 
If your life is cluttered with stuff that hinders your walk with God make the decision to get rid of it so you can grow in the Grace of God.
 
It Takes DISCIPLINE. It takes DEVELOPPING GOOD HABITS
 
1 Timothy 4:7b (LB) “Discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness.”
 
1 Timothy 4:7 (NASB) Spend your time and energy in the exercise of keeping spiritually fit.
 
Hebrews 12:1b (NLT) Let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily hinders our progress.
 
In scuba diving weights are useful underwater – On land they hold you back
 
Give God FIRST Things
 
Give God The First THOUGHTS Of Each Day
 
Psalms 5:3 In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.
 
Mark 1:35 Very early the next morning, Jesus got up and went to a place where he could be alone and pray.
 
Give God The First DAY Of Each Week
 
The purpose of the Sabbath is – To Rest – To Connect With God & His People
 
Exodus 20:8 Remember that the Sabbath Day belongs to me. 9 You have six days when you can do your work, 10 but the seventh day of each week belongs to me, your God.
 
Acts 20:7 And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.
 
Give God Some Quality Time Every Week – You Can Do It
 
Proverbs 10:27 (Living Bible) Reverence for the Lord adds hours to each day.
