04 - Prophecy Of The Christ Child

Matthew 1:18-25

December 16, 2012 • Pastor Ronald H. Gann

It can be difficult to see how Jesus came as the embodiment of peace if one were to judge it by the political climate of the day. But that’s exactly who Jesus is—the Prince of Peace—and that’s precisely what he did. However, it's evident that world peace was not the type peace that Jesus brought on Christmas morning. The babe in Bethlehem brought a much greater peace than we could ever possibly imagine, much less hope for. In this Advent series, Pastor Ronald H. Gann examines the Promise, the Proclamation, the Proof, the Prophecy, and the Premiere of the Christ child as well as the Christmas traditions behind the candy stick, Christmas tree, and wreath.

01 - Promise Of The Christ Child

November 25, 2012 • Pastor Ronald H. Gann

Christmas is not about children fables. It’s not meant to tell the story of jolly Old St. Nick who lavishes children with gifts, depending upon whether they are naughty or nice. Rather, Christmas tells the story of the Christ-Child -- the God Man -- first promised in Genesis 3 and made Manifest in Matthew 1. In this Advent series, Pastor Ronald H. Gann examines the Promise, the Proclamation, the Proof, the Prophecy, and the Premiere of the Christ child as well as the Christmas traditions behind the candy stick, Christmas tree, and wreath.

02 - Proclamation Of The Christ Child

December 2, 2012 • Pastor Ronald H. Gann

The first proclamation of the Christ-child of Christmas happened in the unlikeliest of places and to the unlikeliest of parents. Moreover, it revealed the unlikeliest of pregnancies. In this Advent series, Pastor Ronald H. Gann examines the Promise, the Proclamation, the Proof, the Prophecy, and the Premiere of the Christ child as well as the Christmas traditions behind the candy stick, Christmas tree, and wreath.

03 - Proof Of The Christ Child

December 9, 2012 • Pastor Ronald H. Gann

Of all the herculean announcements that God has made to mankind throughout history, as recorded in His Word, His announcement to Mary about the birth of the Christ-child of Christmas is one of only a few in the Bible where God offered a miraculous sign to substantiate His promise. In this Advent series, Pastor Ronald H. Gann examines the Promise, the Proclamation, the Proof, the Prophecy, and the Premiere of the Christ child as well as the Christmas traditions behind the candy stick, Christmas tree, and wreath.
