Was the holy one little to our salvation in Jesus. Listen to Adrian Rogers you are all see by the precious blood of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, for the glory of God that he is the holy Trinity working in your salvation. If you don't believe in the holy Trinity organic you have Christianity to the whole thing is gone it is all bogus dog just tried to magnify the little Babel Christ is a sweet little Jesus child in Jesus as a great moral teacher and all that. Forget it, the son of God is God. This finding featuring the dynamic teaching. The pastorate author.
Thanks for joining us in such a special day this Christmas as we celebrate the birth of Jesus. This weekend we are reminded in today's message that Jesus Christ was not only the son of God. He was God the son, the second person in the holy Trinity part one, we learned that our God is a triune God father son and Holy Spirit. If we try to understand it on our own will lose her mind if we deny it we may lose our souls. If you have your Bible turned out of the gospel of Luke chapter 1. Look at verse 35 as Adrian Rogers shares the powerful conclusion of Jesus Christ, the son of God, and God the son and the angel answered and said to her, the holy ghost shall come upon the talking marriage.
The holy ghost shall come upon the that's the Holy Spirit, the Holy Ghost and the holy Trinity and the power of highest shall overshadow the that is God the father therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of the shall be called the son of God. In verse yet father-son and Holy Spirit, that brings this question, is this baby who was Jesus Christ. Now the doctrine of the Trinity listen to me is the great Christian distinct is what makes our faith different from all of the other papers. Islam does not believe in the Trinity. Terrorism does not believe in the Trinity does not believe in the Trinity, the Jehovah's Witnesses and others who will come to your doorstep not believe in the Trinity the Jewish people in general do not believe in the Trinity. That's a stumbling block to them, but I show you in the Jewish scriptures in the Old Testament when we get to it.
What we call the Old Testament. They don't call it the Old Testament is there Bible they don't like that the something new and better this come along, but I'm sure you what we call the Old Testament. There the Hebrew Scriptures that Jesus is God and I'm initially from the Bible what the Bible teaches about the holy Trinity. Now we don't look at and in the Bible really see the Trinity in both the old and the New Testament never go to come back and understand why we say that the son of God is God the son. First of all. Point number one I want you to see the sublime mystery of the Trinity sublime mystery_the word mystery. The only way that you can know about the holy Trinity is abided by revelation, did that sink in.
And if it did say amen only by divine revelation you will ever understand the holy Trinity by human investigation, not by logic, not by philosophy, not by science, not by mathematics. The only way that you can know about the holy Trinity is what God says in this God says it in the Bible you believe it because of divine revelation. You see, the Trinity reflected in creation. You see, the Trinity reflected in the great commandment video. The Bible has a great commandment in the Bible has a great commission. The great commandment is found in the Old Testament is called the Shema is a beautiful verse listen to it. Deuteronomy chapter 6 verses four and five here oh Israel, the Lord our Lord is one Lord, thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart and with all thy soul and with all thy might. The word Lord hero is through the Lord, our Lord, the Lord our God is one Lord. The word Lord is the word Yahweh our Jehovah that's singular Jehovah singular, the Lord our God's our God.
Remember that Elohim, that's plural, the Lord our God's is one God Jehovah singular our Elohim plural is one Jehovah now I want you to think about the word one that's in this verse. Don't spell it John E CHA D and what it literally means Islam as a unit one is a you and I want to give you some verses I want to give the quick so just write them down. Genesis chapter 2 verse 24 therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother and cleave unto his wife and they too shall be one flesh, but to hear what they call one malady will Genesis 11. Six and the Lord said, behold, the people is one of the people plural. All those people around about the Tower of Babel. He says they are.
One is the same word that is used over here in the book of Deuteronomy that says God is one in Numbers chapter 13 verse 23 in the middle of that verse one cluster of grapes. So here's a bunch of cluster of grapes. Many grapes in the Bible calls it 1% to 13 verse 17 talking about an army and then the middle that verses is one company like a company of soldiers that what it is is a a unit and plurality first Chronicles 17 verse 21, and what one nation and the earth is like thy people Israel. One nation whole nation is called one malice go back to this verse of Scripture here in Deuteronomy chapter 6 verse four. Listen to it here oh Israel, Jehovah, our God is one Jehovah is the same word that means a plurality in a unity. Yes, there is one God, but that one, is a triune God to give some people difficulty to believe that God has a son, and I think that's a New Testament concept friend that's Old Testament concept as well. But these verses down Daniel chapter 3 verse 25.
Remember the story, the three Hebrew children in the fiery furnace that would not burn and the king looked into the furnace and is what he saw.
Daniel three verse 25 he answered and said hello I see four men loose walking in the midst of the fire and they have no hurt in the form of the full is like the son of God. That's the son of God in the Old Testament for this verse down Proverbs chapter 30 in verse four, the writer of Proverbs is asking the question, who hath ascended up into heaven or descended together. The wind in his fists, who hath bound the waters in a garment hath established all the ends of their what is his name and his sons name. If thou canst tell I can tell.
His name is Jesus.
Psalm two putting down verses six and seven.
God is talking about the wicked machinations of the world and how people awarding and fighting and rebelling against him, and yet God says in Psalm two verses six and seven yet have I said my king upon my holy hill of Zion I will declare the decree Jesus is speaking.
Now the Lord is set up to me, thou art my son, this day have I begotten, the God the son is speaking to God the father.
And speaking of God the father and saying the Lord has said in the thou art my son, then the classic Christmas verse listen to it carefully.
Isaiah chapter 9 verse six for unto us a child is born, and unto us a son is given, and the government shall be upon his shoulder and his name shall be called wonderful Counselor, are you ready for this. Now the mighty God, the everlasting father, what is this son to be called L. DeBoer, the Almighty God. Literal translation the God man.
He is our God man that is his name. That is what is called quasi-pastor Rogers. I don't have to. I don't understand the Trinity will join the club wise man said try to explain the Trinity.
You lose your mind. The night you may lose your soul. It is Bible doctrine only reason we believe it is because the Bible teaches it is a will. I can't put faith in something I can understand the no turn on the lights because you don't understand electricity sale.
I was that like Christiana lectureship limitation topic.
Einstein said he didn't understand electricity sale before he died he can understand electricity in everyday I love what Ben Samoset I is that I don't understand it either, but I'm not going to sit in the dark until I do know don't think that you have to define or explain God knowing what you know about the holy Trinity is is revealed in Scripture and I've talked to you about the sublime Mr. secondly I want to talk about the sacred history of the Trinity, and the mystery, but the history you see as you open the Bible you see the holy Trinity working in history.
For example, in the creation world already alluded to this Genesis 11 in the beginning Elohim created the heavens and their welded God the father create this world.
Yes, but I wanted something else, God the son also created this world.
John one New Testament verses one through three in the beginning was the word bluegrass and the Word was with God and the Word was God the same was in the beginning with God in all things were made by, and without him was not anything made that was made.
While I thought all things were made by Jehovah God, you got all these were made by Jesus but no contradiction.
What about the Holy Spirit but Holy Spirit created everything like you be willing Job 26 verse 13 by his spirit had the garnish that God the father made it, God the son made it God the Holy Spirit made, because we worship one God revealed himself in creation out of the Bible come about, how do we get this book from the holy Trinity.
The Bible is inspired by God the father. Second Timothy three verse 16 all Scripture is given by inspiration of God, so this is a God book all this book is God breathed, but God the son also wrote the Scripture reading first Peter chapter 1 verses 10 and 11. How would salvation the prophets have inquired search diligently prophesied of the grace that you, you searching a lot about what manner the spirit of Christ which was in them did signify was in the prophets the spirit of Christ. Now we just read that the God the father now were reading God the son gave us the Bible but also the Bible was inspired by God the Holy Spirit. Second Peter one verse 21 for the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man, but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost in the creation you see the Trinity and the giving of the Scripture.
You see, the Trinity, when Jesus Christ before left this earth. Any commission the church the commissioning of the church shows us the holy Trinity listen to Matthew 28 verses 19 and 20. You therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them watch this in the name of the father and of the son and of the Holy Ghost.
Now remember that I told you that Jesus didn't belong on anyone's list you think. What a travesty. This would be to put the name of Jesus on the list that begins with God the father article of the Holy Spirit on that list. If you are not coequal and coeternal it would be blasphemy, baptizing them in the name of the father and of the son and of the holy ghost now must bring the message to a conclusion I've talked to you about the mystery of the Trinity. Don't try to figure out you know by divine revelation. I talked about the history of the Trinity and I just picked out a few ways. Why should you look the holy Trinity working in creation, working in the composition of the Bible.
Working in the commissioning of the chair, let me come to the final line not only talk to you about mystery and history. Let me talk to you about the saving ministry. The saving ministry of the holy Trinity to see it in the holy Trinity that we have our salvation now want you to turn to Ephesians chapter 1 and in Ephesians chapter 1 what we going to see is how we are saved through the holy Trinity pelican Ephesians chapter 1 beginning in verse three Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ, according as he got the father hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world that we should be holy and without blame before him in love, having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, to the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he has made us accepted in the below this verse simply says we were selected by God the father you talk about old time religion frame before God swung this planet in the space he had you in his heart and in his mind. You were chosen in the past you're predestined by the future and you are accepted and preserved in the present.
That's what this verse tells thank God for that.
Now listen with him about the Trinity. You were selected by the father. That's Ephesians 1, verses three through six.
You also are saved by the son looking Ephesians 1 verses six and seven God did this to the praise of the glory of his grace, where the brain is made us accepted in the beloved is the blood of Jesus.
This is my beloved son in whom he, Jesus, we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace. This is the why of Christmas. Jesus came to save us. We have redemption through Jesus and the Bible says is the riches of his grace try to sell you salvation today. I'm not offering you salvation at a discount.
I'm not offering you salvation. An installment plan is the sheer gift of God's grace.
You were selected by the father you are saved by the sun and you are sealed by the spirit.
I just go right around verses 13 and 14 in whom Jesus he also trusted that you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, in whom also after that she believed you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, which is nearness that means the down payment of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession under the praise of his glory sealed with the spirit was made to be sealed well in the Bible time they would take melted wax and then they would have a icon that would stamp that wax might be an official document might be in the letter it might be a proclamation but if it was a business transaction.
That's what he's talking about here. It would mean the price is paid.
The ownership is transferred and the matter is settled. Now that's what happens when we get saved was selected by the father saved by the son sealed by the spirit friend I will tell you you are bought and sealed by the precious blood of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, to the glory of God the father.
That is the holy Trinity working in your salvation. If you if you don't believe in the holy Trinity, forget it. You have no Christianity. The whole thing is gone it is all bogus. Don't just try to magnify the little Babel Christ is a sweet little Jesus child Jesus as a great moral teacher and all of that, forget it, the son of God, is God the son. That's the reason God the father in Hebrews chapter 1 said, thou art my son, this day have I begotten, the you have to understand friend that in unto the son he saith, I throw no God is for ever and ever let me come to the conclusion of this whole thing. What do you do you simply believe this is not enough. Boys and girls. One has to question were three frogs on a log. Two of them decided to jump all how many are left by thinking of answer.
The three left three frogs along about what they decided distilled into a jump hello you decide anything you got to do something about this thing is not just simply accepting some intellectual premise.
You can believe in the holy Trinity go straight to hell you say well I decided to write. I grew have you give your heart to Jesus is the plan of salvation saved by the plan of salvation you say by the manner salvation. His name is Jesus. We are not worthy of such love, but he died for us. And if you will, by faith receive him as your personal Lord and Savior. Give your heart to him, trust him, he will forgive every sin.
Everyone, he will cleanse you as well as forgive you the Holy Spirit of God will seal you to the day of redemption. I promise on the authority of the word of God you say when a pastor what if I get saved in sin again.
Listen to me. Jesus is a Savior. He is not a probation officer. He will keep you all the way to the in that if you sin and you will sin here carrier to the woodshed when the father loves a chastened, that doesn't mean you lose your salvation. When you get saved you and I go sprout wings and get a halo you have to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus but he will keep you and his blood will continually cleanse you to listen to me listen, God sent me here to tell you he loves you and wants to save if you want to be saved. Jesus the son of God with God the son with his own blood, purchased your salvation. I want to lead you prayer I want to pray this prayer after me if you want Jesus, dear God, I need to be saved. Jesus, who died to save me and promise to save if I would trust you. I do trust you right now is my personal savior.
