A Journey Toward Jesus
Isaiah 53 points to apparently "unChristmasy" truths without which Christmas makes no sense! Isaiah chapter 53 is the clearest picture in Tanakh of Messiah's ministry and subtitutionary death. Let's probe this important passage and share its richness this week.
Since Jesus’ ascension the anticipation of believers has been not just of being united with Him after death, BUT that He would come back for us as He promised in John 14:1-3. The Holy Spirit inspired Paul to further explain this event in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 and elsewhere.
One of our recent studies looked at the catching away of the Church community reffered to as the Rapture. But heaven with Christ is not all there is to our eternal destiny. Believers are promised an extended period of ruling the earth with Jesus. This era will be one thousand years in duration. Today we look more closely at what it entails.
