The Birth of Jesus Christ, Luke 2:1-7 (Chinese Standard Version)
1 In those days, Caesar Augustus issued a decree, requiring all people in the world to register accounts a .
4 Joseph also from Galilee Nazareth City Jewish ] Go, to the David city called Bethlehem , because he is David a family of people.
1. Without the command of Augustus, will Joseph return to his hometown of Bethlehem with Maria, which is about to be produced? ? Moreover, from Galilee in northern Israel to Judah in the south?
Second, if Jesus was born in Nazareth of Galilee, how can the prophecy of the prophet be fulfilled? It is the Lord Christ who must be born in the hometown of King David, Bethlehem..
3. If Joseph still owns a house in his hometown of Bethlehem or has a close relative, will Maria be born in the manger? They can live in their own homes or stay in relatives, but they can't even find them in their hometown.
4. If it is not the manger as a sign, how can the shepherd find the Savior Christ? Shouldn't newborn babies lie in their own small bed? This is normal, but it is no longer the sign of the birth of the Lord Christ.
A decree of the Roman emperor, the people of the entire empire must obey, they have to return to their original registration accounts, and even the people of God are no exception. It seems that the people of heaven are subject to the kings of the earth.
Isn't the name of God's people not recorded in the book of heaven? How can I register under the name of Caesar Augustus?
God and Caesar, who is greater?
the Lord Jesus was born in such a wonderful way,
was born in the prophet Micah as early as eight Bethlehem, prophesied before the century,
was the promise of the prophet Nathan who passed to the king of David ten centuries ago,
because God made a covenant with Abraham twenty centuries ago. Give him the descendants of the blessings of the nations;
Jesus born from the Holy Inspiration by the Virgin Mary is the descendant of a woman who was destined to break all evil in the Garden of Eden at the beginning of her founding;
He was the God who created the world, humbled himself, and was born for us.
The gods of the world have smashed our eyes, and the lusts have confused our hearts.
The fear of death has made us slaves to sin.
The time has come,
The time of God's mercy is coming, to comfort His people;
The day of God's salvation is coming, to be redeemed Own people;
It is time for God to accept, to forgive one's own people;
The day of God's glory is here, and peace is given to His people.
Do you still think that God's dwelling place is too far away to see our suffering?
Do you also believe that God's punishment is too harsh, and that the offense has abandoned the previous election?
Do you still complain that God's will is too concealed, and that you can't see it?
2,011 years ago,
the ancient town of Bethlehem,
a baby born for us,
wrapped cloth lying in the manger.
This is the hope of my life, God still carries out salvation until now;
This is my joy and strength, by Christ not being physically Bundle;
This is the light that illuminates my soul, from darkness to heaven.
