God Sent Us a Savior
If our greatest need had been information,
God would have sent us an educator,
If our greatest need had been technology,
God would have sent us a scientist.
If our greatest need had been money,
God would have sent us an economist.
If our greatest need had been pleasure,
God would have sent us an entertainer.
But our greatest need was forgiveness,
So God sent us a Savior.
A Little Note From Cobblestone Road Ministries:
The Gospel message is for everyone and for every day of the year!
The Lord Jesus left the splendor of Heaven to be born in a humble manger.
The King of the Universe-- the Great I AM became a man and lived the life
of a Servant. He never sinned. His mission was to die for our sins. When Adam
sinned, all of mankind became separated from God because of sin. Only Jesus,
who never sinned, could restore the relationship between God and man.
Jesus willingly went to the cross to die for your sins and mine.
What a wonderful Savior!
The angel told Joseph in Matthew 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.
Jesus shed His precious blood upon the cross for our sins.
It was prophesied in the book of Isaiah, chapter 53, that Messiah would be
the Suffering Servant to bare the sins of many.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was
bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him;
and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid
on him the iniquity of us all.
Messiah would also be highly exalted. Jesus died and was placed inside
a borrowed tomb. Three days later, He arose from the grave. The Book
of Isaiah tells us that Messiah will have His days prolonged. Now, how can
this be if He died for the sins of the people?
The ONLY explanation is that Messiah would rise again!
Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath
put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin,
he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of
the LORD shall prosper in his hand. He shall see of the travail of his
soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant
justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. Therefore will I divide
him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the
strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was
numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and
made intercession for the transgressors.
For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; [means: the grave]
neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
Because our Messiah is risen, we have hope! He is our Hope!
Because Jesus is alive, we have this blessed assurance that one day we will live
with Him too. He is our Intercessor. He is seated at the right hand of
the Heavenly Father. He is the ONLY Mediator between God and man.
Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea
rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God,
who also maketh intercession for us.
The true meaning of Christmas is that Messiah Jesus-- Yeshua--
came as humble Servant and died upon the cruel cross of Calvary for
all who would receive Him as Savior. He is risen. He is exalted today
and given a name that is above every name.
Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and
a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.
The message of Christmas is the message of salvation through the
Lord Jesus Christ. He died for our sins and rose again and He shall
soon return as KING of Kings and LORD of Lords.
So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and
unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without
sin unto salvation.
If you do not know the Lord Jesus as your personal Savior, receive
Him into your heart today. Believe on Him for there is NO other Savior. Jesus
saves and Him alone. The Bible tells us that there is ONLY One Mediator
between God and man-- the man Christ Jesus!
Buddha cannot save;
Mary cannot save;
Mohammed cannot save;
The New Age Movement cannot save!
Only Jesus saves and Him Alone!
