Establish the need:  Have you heard an advertisement about something that sounds so good you have to wonder if it is true?

Purpose:  Today we will see three reasons for why we believe Isaiah 9:6 is a prediction of the Messiah that Jesus fulfilled so that you know your faith is genuine and it would motivate you to follow Him.

The Birth of Christ

 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon. The Birth of Christ.  Pensacola, FL: Chapel Library, September 22nd 2016. 28 pp.

5 out of 5

Free: Chapel Library

Purchase: Amazon

Are you looking for spiritually edifying reading on the birth of Christ that is also biblically faithful and accurate?   This work is from Charles Spurgeon, the famous Victorian era Baptist Preacher.  Based upon a sermon he delivered at his church at New Park Street Chapel on Christmas Eve 1854, it blew my mind that these words was from Spurgeon when he was twenty years old.  The message in based upon Isaiah 7:14-15 and the truth Spurgeon delivered is timeless, Christ-centered and Gospel driven.

david_versus_goliath_is_a_messianic_type

 

Establish the need: We already saw the last two weeks that the beginning and end of 1-2 Samuel has Messianic prophecies stated in poetic forms; but in between the bookends does any of the narrative stories gives us any types pointing towards the Messiah?

Purpose: We will explore how this story is a type pointing to Jesus with two points so that we would be at awe with God and Christ and the Bible as our act of worship.

  • We expect a Messianic typology in 1-2 Samuel because of the parallels between Abraham and David
  • The parallel with David and Jesus

  • The Messiah’s Righteousness (v.3b-4)
  • The Basis of the Messiah’s Coming is the Davidic Covenant (v.5)
  • The Messiah’s Judgment (v.6-7)

Now for something fun!  I’m reviewing something I haven’t done before on this blog: a Christian apologetics hoodie!

Presup shark hoodie

 

My blog cover a lot on Presuppositional Apologetics.  I love it enough that I got something related to Presuppositional Apologetics besides books.  Since it is getting colder with the fall what an appropriate time to have a hoodie and also something with the theme of Presuppositional Apologetics.   

The above is a picture of the hoodie I ordered that is on this online Christian shirt shop called “The Powerful Christian.”  You can go to the store directory by clicking here.  (Its not a picture of me lol).  The shop have merchandise related to Presuppositional Apologetics and also Reformed theology.
