The Greatest of All Messages from Heaven

The greatest of all messages from heaven—the coming of Christ to be born in Bethlehem’s manger—is now being celebrated once again by the world. He was born in Bethlehem’s manger, He lived a perfect life, and then He died for our sins on the cross. Then He arose again to demonstrate that it was all true. Christ the Son of the living God and what He did for us on the cross—this should be message enough to bring the whole world to [...]

The Time Was Come

By PAUL J. SCHARF, M.Div. Editor in Chief But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. (Gal. 4:4-5, KJV) "Are you ready for Christmas?" If you have not been asked that question already, you surely will be in the coming days and weeks. Perhaps the questioner was inquiring if you have done [...]

Christmas Prophecies from Isaiah (Part 6)

By PAUL J. SCHARF, M.Div. Editor in Chief (Read Part 5) We conclude our thoughts on Christmas from the perspective of the prophet Isaiah by looking briefly at two of the most famous chapters from the "New Testament Section" of the book—the final 39 chapters—from this great Christmas prophet. Isaiah 40 This chapter has become an integral part of our meditation upon Christmas, largely due to the central place that it holds in Handel’s Messiah. Its major themes help us to focus [...]

Christmas in Genesis 3:15

By ROLLAND D. MCCUNE, Th.D. Contributing Author As dispensationalists we do not find revelation in the Old Testament that is distinctive to the New Testament church, but there is an abundance of truth that is ultimately applicable to all people of all times. The sin of Adam bound the whole world “in the darksome prison house of sin,” in desperate need of a Savior, a member of the human race who could once-for-all destroy sin and its effects forever. Outside the gates [...]

Christmas Prophecies from Isaiah (Part 5)

By PAUL J. SCHARF, M.Div. Editor in Chief (Read Part 4) Following the pronouncement of the first of the great Christmas prophecies in Isaiah 7:14, Isaiah delivers a message of judgment through the remainder of Isaiah 7. Both Israel and Syria would be defeated by Assyria (v. 16), and Judah would also suffer immeasurable harm from that superpower as well—“days that have not come since the day that Ephraim departed from Judah” (v. 17b). Verses 18-25 give a picturesque description of the [...]

The Focal Point of History

By JAMES MAXWELL, D.Min. Contributing Author One of the most succinct and beautiful statements about the birth of Christ is given by Paul in Galatians 4:4-5: “But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.” It not only captures the purpose of Christ’s birth, but it is also a rich doctrinal text. It [...]

Christmas Prophecies from Isaiah (Part 4)

By PAUL J. SCHARF, M.Div. Editor in Chief (Read Part 3) With a thorough understanding of the background and setting in place, we now move directly toward considering the first of Isaiah’s major Christmas prophecies. Isaiah 7:10 begins a new section in our text with another astounding demonstration of the grace of God, who again condescends to speak to the wicked King Ahaz through Isaiah. Not only did God communicate with Ahaz, but he offered him the opportunity do something that most [...]

Christmas Prophecies from Isaiah (Part 3)

By PAUL J. SCHARF, M.Div. Editor in Chief (Read Part 2) As we look at the geopolitical actors on the world stage today, we see great similarity to the events that transpired in Isaiah’s time. We have noted that chapter 7 begins in 734 B.C., when the world was dominated by the Assyrian Empire. It was ultimately the threat posed by this superpower (which had been visited by Jonah roughly 50 years earlier and would be denounced by Nahum almost 90 years [...]

The King’s Credentials

By RANDY WHITE, D.Min. Founder and CEO (Part 2 of a Series—Two Essential Men: John and Joseph; Read Part 1) We began looking at Luke 1 last time in order to learn more about two men who were selected by God to play critical roles in the unfolding of the first Advent of our Lord. These men are John—the only one who could be the legitimate forerunner of the Messiah—and Joseph—the only one who could be the legitimate earthly father of our [...]
