God has an encouraging word for you and me today.

The Bible-based freezing of Dr. Don Wilton and a message on perfection. So good to walk again as we study the word together with Dr. Don will be headed to Luke chapter 2 because this message is I believe Christmas is perfect. That's the perfection were talking about today and during this wonderful holiday season. I pray that your holidays were coming more holy days love to help you do that with some resources we have on our website right now ITW that's DEW were also connecting on the phone at 86689. Many folks are calling and asking for the daily Encouraging Word Bible guide. Just ask for its free and 866-899-WORD 9673. Now it's open our hearts to God's word together with Dr. Don Wilton today I want to show you something that is so close to my heart. I want to speak to you on this subject.

I believe that Christmas is perfect. How do you like that I believe that the Christmas story.

I believe that the message of Christmas.

I believe that Christmas is perfect. Now we know how hard it is to be humble when you're perfect in every way right and I'm going to use this WordPerfect this morning and I'm going to ask you to open your Bibles with me. We going to be in the book of Luke, and there's a Bible in the pew rack if you'd like to use it.

Got a red, and you can turn they in fact it's on page 992, one turn page 992 we going to be in Luke chapter 2 Luke was a physician. He was adopted and the God used Luke two recalled the story about the birth of Jesus.

And here in Luke chapter 2 we read about what happened when the Lord Jesus was born. This is what Christmas is all about the greatest thing that ever happened and I believe that this passage reminds us that Christmas is perfect now that WordPerfect means it is something exact theories no blemish. It's exactly what it needs to be. It's perfect in every way. There are no adjustments with me to be made. You know when you get out there on the bowl field and you playing in your coaches Mike that playing quarterback steps back into the pocket and he looks out he makes the play and that sort of works out almost right, but not quite so just before the next flight timeout coach goals. The players run over and you get into a huddle that offense of coaching gathers you together and he says not look what we doing this is good but it's not perfect and he calls the play and he calls the team together. I need to sign something that's going to result in a touchdown and perhaps a win for the team Championship Here in Luke Chapter 2 the Bible Tells Us about Something That Is Absolutely Perfect and I Just Want to Share with You from My Heart Today on the Fact That I Personally I Believe That Christmas Is Perfect.

You See on the Christian Man. Most of You Know Me As Don Wilton You See Me Stand up Your Today Is Posture of the Wonderful Church and I Have a Wife That I Love so Much.

But the Thing That I Want to Tell You Most of All Is That I'm a Christian Man, Jesus Christ Is Coming to My Heart and into My Life Needs Change My Life Forever. And Because Jesus Christ Is Change My Life.

I Want You to Know That What Happened at Christmas Time Is Perfect, Just What the Bible Says in Luke Chapter 2 in Verse One. In Those Days Caesar Augustus Issued a Decree That a Census Should Be Taken of the Entire Roman World. This Was the First Census That Took Place While Arrhenius Was Governor of Syria and Everyone Went to His Own Town to Register.

So Joseph Also Went up from the Town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to a Place Called Bethlehem the Town of David, Because He Belonged to the House and to the Line of David. He Went There to Register with Mary, Was Pleased to Be Married to Him and Was Expecting a Baby and While They Were There, the Time Came for the Baby to Be Born so She Gave Birth to Her Firstborn Son. She Wrapped Him in Swaddling Cloths and She Placed Them in a Manger, Because There Was No Room for Them at the Hilton by the Lord. Right. This Would in Our Hearts Today I Want to Speak to You for Just A Few Moments on. I Believe That Christmas Is Perfect.

I Love Great Stories like This Are All Kinds of Stories That I Love but There's No Greater Story Than the Story of Christmas, Jesus.

This One Came in He Was Born in Bethlehem of Judea. It's Perfect. I Want to Tell You Four Reasons Why the Bible Tells Us That That the Christmas Story Is Perfect. Why I Believe Is Number One. It's Perfect Because the Timing Is Perfect. The Timing Was Perfect off That Most Difficult Question. Why Is It That God Waited so Long to Send Jesus to Come to This Earth to Be Born to Die upon the Cross to Come Forth from the Grave to Us Seem to Be Seated at the Right Hand of the Father. Why Didn't God Wait so Long. I Mean, When You Wind the Clock Back and You and You Look All the Way Back in the Old Testament You Think of People like Abraham and Isaac, and Jacob and Moses You Look at the Lives of the Kings You Watch the Israelites Wandering around the Wilderness Messing up Time off for Another You Look at All the Prophets, and You Culminate in the Book of Malachi, Why Didn't God Wait so Long. Well, There Are A Lot Of Reasons for That Knock Came to the Conclusion That God Did What God Does Because He's God and That His Timing Is Perfect. Why Was It That Jesus Came and Was Born in Bethlehem at a Time When the Roman Empire Was on a Rampage When People Were in Slavery and Bondage. Why Did Jesus Come at a Time like This When There Was so Much Hate Going on in the World When the Economy Was Being Threatened in the Time of Caesar Augustus to the Point at Which They Were Considering New Taxes upon the People Why This Eases Outdated Day Have Such an Adversarial Relationship with the Senate of the Roman Empire. Why Was There so Much Squabbling Going on in That World Where the Wolves and Was Everywhere. There Were Earthquakes Invoked Where Erupting and It Was Right in the Midst of This, the Gods, Timing Was Perfect. Jesus Came. I Believe That Christmas Is Perfect Because the Timing Was Perfect. So What Time Is It for You. I Know When I Look at My Own Life. I Cannot Get over the Fact That God's Timing with Me Was Perfect. I Don't Understand These Things I Don't Understand That That Why Would I Have Grown up in Zulu Land in Africa. Why Would I Come from Africa. Why Would I Be Born in Africa While I Go to Boarding School in Africa. Why Would I Give My Life to Christ As a Young Boy in Africa.

Why Would I Begin to Drift Away. Why Was It That I Began to Hang around with the Wrong Crowd. Why Was It That I Flunked the Ninth Grade the 11th Grade Equivalent to Why Why Was It That I I Went to the Army, Why, Why Was It That When Things. Why Was It That My Heart Became Angry. Why Was It That I Was Going.

Why Was It That I Made Such a Beautiful Young Lady Had Such an Incredible Impact on My Life.

Why Was It That I Went through so Many Years in Which There Was a Time of Going on in My Heart. Why Was It That I Walked Headlong into This Jesus at the Time That I Do and Kind Understand That He Loved Me despite Myself, and That Right There on My Knees. Why Was It That in God's Perfect Timing That I Knew That God Was Getting a Hold of My Life. Why Was It That I Screwed up and Understood That God Had Called Me to Be a Preacher and Teacher of the Gospel When I Love so Much Being out the on the Athletic Field and Riding Motorbikes and and and Surfboards and Things of Life.

Why Was It Because God's Timing Is Perfect Because in God's Time God Got a Hold of Me and in God's Time. God's Timing Is Always Perfect and Some of You Today Yeah Because This Is God's Perfect Time. So Grateful and Proud of All Here Today and I Believe It's God's Perfect Time for Everybody Worshiping Today in The Encouraging Word into the Word of the Living God. But God's Perfect Time Has Arrived for You. I Believe That Christmas Was Perfect Because the Timing Was Perfect.

I Pray That This Would Not Happen. I Really Knew What I Meant. Some You Guys Can Walk Out Of Here, You Can Destroy Yourselves with Cigarettes and with Alcohol and with Broken Marriages and Four Letter Words and Pornography and You Can Allow the Sewers of Laughter Flow through You and Destroy You and I Pray Not Only for You but Each One of Us That You Would Understand That God's Timing Is Perfect. This Is Not an Accidental Time and What Happened When Jesus Was Born in Bethlehem Was Absolutely Perfect. Jesus Came. The Timing Was Perfect Not Only the Timing Was Perfect but the Place Was Perfect Hair. You Know, We Sing That Griped Him Oh Little Town of Bethlehem. By the Way, I've Been to Bethlehem. I've Been to Bethlehem 20 Times. It Is a Little Town.

Even Today Is Not Some Great Metropolitan Area.
