God Kept His Promise
Long ago the prophet, God=s messenger Isaiah wrote: AWho has believed our report?@ He wrote when few people were listening to God=s Word. He wrote about the time when the Saviour would come. How did he know about the coming Saviour? God showed him what to write. He wrote about how the Saviour would have to suffer and bleed and die and rise again from the dead. Few people listened. Few people believed what Isaiah wrote. AWho has believed our report?@ The most important story in all the world, a true story and few believed it. Who has believed our report? (Have you?) Even though people didn=t believe, God still kept His Word. Just because people say they don=t believe God does not make God a liar. No, God is true. His Word is true. He cannot lie. AForever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven.@ God=s Word is sure, unchanging, firm like a solid rock. Heaven and earth will pass away, but God=s word will remain the same forever and ever and ever. It pays to believe God=s Word. But Isaiah wrote: AWho has believed?@ (Have you?). In the fullness of time, the Bible tells us when the time was exactly rightBGod always know the right timeBwhen the time was exactly right, God sent His Son into the world. He caused Him to be born as a little baby. He named Him Jesus which means Saviour. Because few believed God=s report, few were expecting Him. But some did expect Him and to them He sent the Good News: AUnto you is born this day . . . a Saviour which is Christ the Lord.@ The shepherds came and believed. Wise men came later and believed. Wise men and women, wise boys and girls, still seek Him out and believe on Him. ANeither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.@ Do you believe God=s report? Have you believed on the Lord Jesus Christ as your only God and Saviour from sin?
Part Two, Jesus Is Crucified
Part Three, The Lord Is Risen Indeed!
