Kathy — Obedience should be the truest expression of submission, respect and honor in a mature son. Satan offered Jesus a quick way to the kingdoms of this world. Jesus was a mature son and so intent upon obedience that He couldn’t be tempted by success on an easier path. Satan could not get Jesus to focus on what He could do instead of who He was. That is mature character. Jn.10:18
As the people of God assemble today may they consider Yeshua Whose name is above all names and Who is seated enthroned above all, and glorify Him as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. “But as for Me, I have installed My King Upon Zion, My holy mountain.” 7 “I will surely tell of the decree of the Lord: He said to Me, ‘You are My Son, Today I have begotten You. 8 ‘Ask of Me, and I will surely give the nations as Your inheritance, And the very ends of the earth as Your possession. (Ps.2:6-8, NASB)
When speaking of the birth of Jesus, it is interesting to note the particular terms Prophet Isaiah uses in Chapter 9. Jesus is referred to by two different terms. (1) “For a CHILD will be born to us” speaks of our LORD coming to live among men as Emmanuel-God with us. (2) But it is important for us to realize the impact of the second term used: “a SON will be given to us.” This is reference to the fact that God, the Father, is giving His greatest gift to mankind, HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON as the One who would grow “in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man” (Lk.2:52) and become our Redeemer. WE have been given, through the Christmas Advent, the Gift of Life which is not a thing, but God’s SON. It may be that Christmas is more truly Thanksgiving Day than the holiday in November. Blessed be the Name of the LORD!
“For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given;” (Isa.9:6, NKJV)
