Birth of Jesus

“Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise:  When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. 

Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.

But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. 

And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the Prophet saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. 

Then Joseph being raised form sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS” (Matt 1:18-25).

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

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: And the government shall be upon his shoulder: And his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace” (Is 9:6).

 

Judgment

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (Jn 3:16).

“In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him” (1 Jn 4:9).

“But God commendeth his love toward us, in we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Rom 5:8).

“The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and his evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.  Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I understand; I have strength.  I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me” (Pro 8:13-14 & 17).

“Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.  For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favor of the LORD.  But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his soul: all they that hate me love death” (Pro 8:34-36).

“He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he” (Deut 32:4).

 

 

God

I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me, which they may know from the rising of the sun and from the west, that there is none beside me. 

I am the LORD, and there is none else.  I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things” (Is 45:5-7).

“I am the LORD that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images” (Is 42:8).

“See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand” (Deut 32:39).

“It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God” (Heb 10:31).

 

 

Omnipotence, Omnipresence, and Omniscience

The three attributes that define God are Omnipotence, Omnipresence, and Omniscience.  Love is not one of His attributes, that’s what He is (1 Jn 4:8).

“I know that thou cast do everything, and that no thought can be withholden from thee” (Job 42:2).

“But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men, this is impossible; but with God, all things are possible” (Matt 19:26).  

“And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth” (Rev 19:6).

“Whither shall I go from thy spirit?  If I ascend up into heaven, thou are there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.  Yea, the darkness shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee” (Ps 139:7-9 & 12).

“Am I a God at hand, saith the LORD, and not a God afar off?  Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him?  Saith the LORD.  Do not I fill heaven and earth?  Saith the LORD” (Jer 23:23-24).

“Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite” (Ps 147:5).

“Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure” (Is 46:10).
