Weekly Update - 12/6

Thank you Patrick for the message this morning....A Rescue Mission, with the text taken from Daniel 2.
At the beginning of this Advent season we are remembering when God left the glory and the splendor of heaven, and He plunged into this dark world on a rescue mission. 
Genesis 3:15  “And I will put enmity (contempt, hostility) between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her Offspring; He will bruise and tread your head underfoot, and you will lie in wait and bruise His heel.”
“He is coming, the Messiah is coming.”
Read Daniel 2:19-23; 26-28; 34; 36-37; 44-45.
Jesus, the Rock that was cut from the mountain without human hands, is growing into an everlasting Kingdom that will never be destroyed or conquered. What was once hidden, even to the prophets, has now been revealed in Jesus the Messiah.
~~The vision goes past the fact that the stone would cut without human hands, and goes on to say that it will consume the Earth. 
 ~~Many times we think of Christmas and only think of the Manger; Jesus is no longer in the Manger. ct a chapter in Daniel~~Christmas is a wonderful time of the year to remember the birth of Christ, but let’s not forget what His birth means to us...
1. God loves us and sent His Son Jesus.
2. Jesus became the perfect sacrifice for sin.
3. Jesus gave His life upon the cross so we could have forgiveness of sin.                                 4. Jesus rose from the grave that we might have Eternal life with Him.
5. The truth has been revealed to us—The King is coming back!!!
