THE YEOVIL CHRISTADELPHIANS
JESUS CHRIST who is the Son of God, our Saviour & coming King
Through a reading of the whole Bible, we get a clear picture of Jesus Christ and who he really was. In Old Testament times God made many promises to people of old. A saviour was promised, one who would save people from their sins. King David was promised a son who would sit on the throne and reign as king - for ever. The Lord Jesus descended from David, his mother Mary, was a descendant of David's. However, as we read in the New Testament, Jesus was also born Son of God. This fulfilled the promise made, by God, many years earlier to David - "I will be his Father and he shall be My son".
Prophets in Old Testament times spoke about the one who would be born many years later. Before the birth, the angel visited Mary to break the news to her and to tell her that she was the one who would be the mother of this special baby. When Jesus was born, the angel informed shepherds that the saviour had been born. Jesus can be our saviour if we respond to the message of the Bible. We can also be part of the promised kingdom over which he will reign as king when he returns to the earth - soon!
When thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom. He shall build an house for my name, and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever. I will be his father, and he shall be my son ... and thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever. 2 Samuel 7:12-14,16
The Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. Isaiah 7:14
The angel said unto them, (the shepherds) Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:10,11
