Bible Text: Hebrews 1:1-2, Isaiah 7:14 |

Don’t Miss the Best Part               December 2, 2018

Hebrews 12:1-2  Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us,and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,  2.  Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of ourfaith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Christmas time - the wondrous beauty of the fact that the Son was born.

Isaiah 7:14  Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

Immanuel = God with us. This is a plain statement; the Saviour was coming as a babe born to a virgin. If these words were spoken to you at that time, it should grab your attention. But that wasn’t the case, there were just a handful that were expecting the birth of the Lord. The majority were asleep to this. Just like today, God’s people are not hearing the word of God. When we don’t dwell in the whole counsel of God, we refuse God’s way. They wanted a triumphant entry of a king, not a babe in a manger or a man on a donkey. The Saviour of their soul was on that donkey, but they wanted to see it another way. They completely missed it. All but a handful (whether it was at the manger or 33 years later on a donkey) knew He was the Son of God. Not hearing the word of God and unbelief will put you to sleep. Every prophesy was fulfilled.

We are on the cusp of a more amazing appearing. About 2,000 years ago, Paul and John wrote that the Lord would appear again as a Bridegroom. Most of God’s people are ignorant and asleep to this truth. Why? They are expecting something different than what the Lord said it would be. They are looking for a king but He is appearing as a Bridegroom. The ones that will see Him first are looking for a spouse, not waving a palm. They are going to be like Him. The word hasn’t changed. He is telling us to wake up! This is our opportunity to hear about God’s best. Just like then, if you missed it – you missed it. Just receive this truth and it will transform you. Man’s ideas and thoughts will miss God’s best. The gospel will cause you to take flight and be ready for His appearing. The best part is there, for everyone that believes. God’s word comes to pass – it is true and real. You can look the other way. They didn’t want a baby, but those that did, saw their Saviour. Those that want a Bridegroom will have salvation with eternal glory. Glorified together, ruling and reigning with Him. Don’t pass this up. Don’t be asleep to this. The Bridegroom is coming. We are getting ready to meet our Bridegroom in the air.
