Sermon: More than a Prophet, He is THE Prophet (Header)

  • Spend the next four weeks exploring some Old Testament prophecies concerning the coming Christ with the theme of each week connected to hope
  • Four weeks to discuss Christ as Prophet, Priest and King and how the birth of Christ points to these three offices or roles that He came to fulfill
  • A prophet – One who speaks for God to us (Slide 2)
  • A Priest – One who speak to God for us (Slide 3)
  • A King – One who rules over us (Slide 4)
  • Where do we find hope?
  • Hope functions in our lexicon today a little differently than the biblical usage of the word
  • “I hope my team wins” or “I hope I get something good for Christmas”
  • We use hope the way we use the term wish or want
  • The Biblical use of the Word hope is linked to a promise from God and we are looking with faith for its fulfillment
  • Hope in the promises of God to establish forever these three offices of Prophet, Priest and King
  • I hope that God will speak and communicate to us and
  • From the beginning, God’s communication with and to humans is the theme of the Bible
  • God discloses His nature and plan and calls us to participate in what He is doing
  • When the serpent tempts Eve in the Garden, one of the lines of deception include the question of God’s revelation
  • Read Genesis 3:1 (Slide 5)
