Birth of Christ………Now a NEW COVENANT
A CHILD HAS BEEN BORN! MESSIAH CHRIST!
OLD COVENANT…………..Do or Die!
NEW COVENANT ……Confess!, Repent! Forgiveness! In Christ GRACE UNLIMITED – Only Believe.
This year with Christmas Day falling on a Saturday, the Sunday readings many folks follow shocked by the difference seen by the Birth of the Promised Messiah/SAVIOUR. and OLD COVENANT living under the LAW.
2 Chron 24- 17-20……….filled with the Spirit Zechariah tries to turn the people to God’s Holy Law and dispense with idol worship….Why do you transgress the Commandments of the Lord?
They seize him and stone him to death. As he dies he says “The Lord look on this and repay.’
OLD COVENANT L A W!
A CHILD IS BORN!
Acts 7. Stephen filled with the Spirit tries to tell the TRUTH about Messiah’s coming and His SALVATION for ALL,
He is seized and stoned to death……..He looks up…He sees Jesus. He says “Lord, do not charge them with this sin.’
The Pharisee Saul’s whole life will be drastically changed! He saw and understood a new Covenant of Grace will change all old works laws.
The NEW COVENANT………….In Christ ALONE…….FORGIVENESS and freedom.
The Child’s birthday heralded THE NEW COVENANT.
Christ’s Blood shed at Calvary NEW WAY FORWARD. HIS Resurrection sealed the Holy Promise of eternity in Him.
NOW no longer must we work to be good enough . We LOVE, we confess, we repent we accept forgiveness. The Holy Spirit indwelling is working on our behalf to sanctify us.
This is the great Gift of Christmas.
He was BORN. In Him We believe.

Now, we await the coming of Christ again and His KINGDOM AGE.
