More Sermon Details:
The story of Godâ€™s redemption of his people climaxed in the fullness of the times when God became flesh and dwelt among us (John 1:1, 14). Christmas is the time we should remember and celebrate as the birth of the â€śseed of the womanâ€ť who would crush the head of the serpent as God promised in Eden when the Gospel of Godâ€™s grace was announced for the first time (Gen. 3:15-16).
In Revelation 12, the Apostle John paints a vivid picture of not only the incarnation that we joyously celebrate at Christmas, but the decisive and climatic victory of the â€śSeed of the Womanâ€ť who is Jesus Christ, who overcame for us death, hell and the devil, which was the goal of his birth in Bethlehem (Heb. 2:14-15; 1 John 3:8). In our sermon today, we will look at the multiple redemptive-historical facets of the significance of Christmas that the Apostle John shows to us through his apocalyptic vision, and we will be reminded that from the beginning of redemptive-history in the Garden of Eden and through the rest of the Old Testament, the hope of the elect was a child who was to be born.
