Ancient Words (1 of 5)

Ancient Words

Advent to Christmas 2016 | Nov 27 - Dec 25

Ancient Words is a series that invites us to see the divine nature of the Scriptures by experiencing the power of the Messianic prophecies that were fulfilled in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. Predictive prophecy is unique to the Bible. The apostle Peter said the prophets were “carried along by the Holy Spirit” (2 Peter 1:20-21) as they spoke of things they themselves may not have originally intended or fully understood. It wasn’t until the advent of Christ that eyes were opened to the prophecies and their fulfillment in Jesus. In Ancient Words, we are encouraged to take comfort in knowing that God put signposts in place to direct us to Jesus and trust that he is the promised Messiah. May these ancient words empower our faith and give us hope for the future.

Sermon Series: Ancient Words
Sermon Title: The Coming of the Deliverer (1 of 5)
Scripture Reading: Genesis 3:15; Deuteronomy 18:17-19; John 5:39-40, 46

Jesus told the people of his day that the Hebrew Scriptures point to him. He even said that Moses wrote about him. What did Jesus mean? How do the Scriptures prophetically testify to the coming of Christ and to a deliverer that will defeat the enemy and set his people free? In The Coming of the Deliverer (1 of 5), Pastor David encourages us to see how Jesus is the true deliverer of God’s people.
