Pray for the peace of Jerusalem

May they prosper who love you

- Psalm 122:6

God is One

To worship another God would be the intolerable sin of idolatry.  But Jesus not only accepted He commanded it.  (Luke 19:40)  So did the Father require it of Jesus (Psalm 2: 12)

Messiah has to be God

Atonement was necessary to reconcile sinners to God.  God is holy and required a perfect sacrifice to effect atonement.  At first the people sacrificed animals, but the blood of bulls and goats could not cleanse, it could only cover sin.  Thus God promised that He would provide an acceptable atonement. 

His Birth

The birth of Jesus was prophesied in detail thousands of years before His birth.

Messiah or Israel?

The prophets speak of God’s “Servant.”  In many ways this servant sounds like Israel.  In fact many Jewish scholars interpret these passage that way, but to apply those passages totally to Israel is illogical and impossible.  The ultimate Servant is Jesus – the ultimate Jew.

Yeshua, God in the flesh

In December the world celebrated two different but linked holidays- Christmas and Hanukkah. 

The traditional date of Christmas, based on the solar Gregorian calendar, is always December 25.  But since the feasts of the Lord are according to the lunar calendar, the date of Hanukkah always changes.

切都更新了

哥林多后书5:17

若有人在基督里,他就是新造的人,旧事已过,都变成新的了。

天堂的应许

诗篇23: 6

我一生一世必有恩惠、慈爱随着我,我且要住在耶和华的殿中,直到永远。

光明节的第8支蜡烛

他的政权与平安必加增无穷,他必在大卫的宝座上治理他的国,以公平、公义使国坚定稳固,从今直到永远。万军之耶和华的热心必成就这事。

光明节的第七支蜡烛

耶稣从死里复活四十天后,他升上到他原来的地方 – 坐在父神的右边。在那里等到以色列寻求祂的日子。当那时, 他将会再来,为以色列争仗,把他(和她)的敌人放在他的脚下。

光明节的第六支蜡烛

耶稣的复活仍然是信心问题的分水岭。他的复活证明耶稣的神性。救恩在乎上帝的恩典和我们对弥赛亚耶稣赎罪之死,埋葬和复活的信心。單是相信耶稣是个好人不会导致人与上帝和好或是罪得赦免。
