UNTO US A CHILD IS BORN.  .  .    Isaiah 9:6

WHY JESUS CAME- God So Loved Us!

Jesus came because of God’s great love for us.   (John 3:16)

Jesus came because God wanted to be with us.  (Mt 1:23)

God came in the person of Jesus Christ to save us.  (Mt 1:21)

“And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.”  (Mt 1:21)

(Jesus said):

 “I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”  (Luke 5:32)

“For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them.”  (Luke 9:56)

 “For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.”  (Luke 19:10)

“I come not to judge the world, but to save the world.”  (John 12:47)

Why do we need to be saved?

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”  (Ro 3:23)

“For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners” (we inherited our sinful nature from Adam; Ro 5:19)

“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.  (Ro 6:23)

“whosoever believeth in him, should not perish, but have everlasting life.”   (John 3:16)

How can we be saved?

“if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. (Ro 10:9)

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”  (Ro 10:13)

  1. May I politely add in regard to your reference of isaiah’s description of Immanuel, that many say the Lord is a wonderful counsellor, per the quote of ch. 9.

    However, in the kings book, it is said His name is Wonderful. This is quite a difference in statement and in truth. There are many people who are wonderful counsellors, but none
    whose names are WONDERFUL.

    This has long been a contention speaking as to differing translations. Some obviously are better than others. I’m sticking with the tried and true. The Lord Jesus is WONDERFUL.

    The word is a noun and not an adjective and rightly so.

    • Beautiful, John! I’m hoping to get through the other names of Jesus by Christmas. The prophet Isaiah in 9:6 tells us the names of Jesus as being Wonderful, Counsellor, Almighty God, Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace. I love them all! God bless you, Dear Brother!

  2. Thank you Liz for sharing a bounty of uplifting and confirming Scripture, what does it mean to believe in the Name of Jesus, it’s not just knowing about Him but knowing Him, this is how we confirm He is Lord, The Holy Spirit confirms it in our heart. 1Corinthians2:9-16

    Jesus came not just to save us but to set us free from the slavery of sin so we would no longer be in bondage and so we now have assurance that no Temptation will be greater than we can bear, Jesus is our Armour.

    John 8:34-36 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

    We are to put our flesh to death by the Holy Spirit as we choose to walk in His Fruit by His empowering.

    Galatians 24 -26 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. if we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

    Romans 8 :12-15 Therefore, brothers, we have an obligation—but it is not to the sinful nature, to live according to it. or if you live according to the sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live, because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons/daughters of God.

    We are not only are clothed in Jesus righteousness but we walk as Jesus did in righteousness and so we do what is righteous.

    1John 3:4-10 Everyone who sins breaks the law; in fact, sin is lawlessness. But you know that He appeared so that He might take away our sins. And in Him is no sin. No one who lives in Him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen Him or known Him. Dear children, do not let anyone lead you astray. He who does what is right is righteous, just as He is righteous.

    1 John 3:9 No one who is Born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been Born of God.

    1 John 5:18-20 We know that no one who is Born of God sins; but He who was Born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him. We know that we are of God, and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one. And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.

    Like you do Liz, I Love God’s Truth and have a passion for sharing it wherever God leads me, thank you for letting me share and encouraging others to do the same.

    Christian Love from us both – Anne

    • Thank you so much, Anne, for sharing further teachings on the subject. I appreciate your ministry as a Bible teacher in amplifying God’s Word and encouraging us to be diligent students of the Bible.

  3. I’m not a Bible Teacher Liz , I share God’s Truth as He leads me, to be honest I can’t write in length, it takes me a week to express my thoughts in a letter because of being Dyslectic but having asked and received God’s wisdom He empowers me by The Holy Spirit and as I share in comments and on my Blog, Jesus leads me into all Truth, He is our only Teacher He is The Living Word and we are His Body, to reach out to a hurting world but not just in practical ways but also offering Spiritual nourishment , that will give eternal Hope and Joy and also now.

    I’m still learning but I don’t doubt what He has already shown me, it is His Truth and it is confirmed in Scripture and in His Creation, yes I’m a cracked vessel but He is The Super Glue .

    Christian Love from both of us – Anne

  4. Reblogged this on God's Enduring Love and commented:

    Always good to remember why Jesus came especially during these uncertain times. Jesus came to be God with us. He will soon return to rule and reign in a Kingdom of Peace on earth. Maranatha!
