11-27-2022 “WHEN GOD CAME DOWN TO EARTH!” Luke 2:7

This week Bro. Leo starts us on a study of the significance of the birth of Jesus Christ.

2000 year old historical fact of God coming down to Earth to dwell among us: The very foundation of our salvation lays in our belief of the historical fact that Jesus was fully human and fully God (John 1:1-3, 14, Luke 3:22-23, Gal.4:4, 2Cor.5:19, 1Tim.3:16, John 14:9-11, Col.2:9, 1John 4:1-3, 2John 1:7, 1John 1:1-3, 1John 4:2).

The present day fact that God still comes down to dwell among us: At the time of our believing the 2000 year old historical truth of Jesus being fully human and fully God, God comes down to us in a personal manner indwelling us with His Spirit to reside with us permanently (Gal.4:4, 6, John 14:17-20).
