The Life Of Christ On Earth.

I would like to deal with the subject of Jesus Christ while he was here on earth.

1. First I would like to deal with some prophecies in the Old Testament that were fulfilled by Jesus when he was here on earth.

A. Is. 9:7 says He will be an heir to the throne of David. We see this prophecy fulfilled in Matt. 1:1.
B. Micah 5:2 We see that he is too be born in Bethlehem, this is fulfilled in Matt. 2:1.
C. Is. 7:14 He is to be born of a virgin. The fulfillment of this prophecy is in Matt. 1:18.
D. His hands and His feet are to be pierced according to Psalms 22:16. This is fulfilled when He is put on the cross in John 20:27.
E. His side is to be pierced according to Zechariah 12:10 this is also fulfilled while he is on the cross in John 19:37.

2. His childhood life.

A. We see that mother was a virgin Matt.1:18.
B. He is born in a manger because there is no room in the inn. Luke 2:7.
C. He has both a prophet (Simeon) and a prophetess (Anna) say that He is the Christ.
In Luke 2:25-38

3. His ministry as a child.

A. We see that He started His ministry at the early age of 12. Luke 2:42-49.

That is all for now thanks for looking.

Where We Have Been Lately

Since my last post we have been very busy and I will just update on where we have been and what we have been doing.
We were at our home church the end of September. It was great to be back and see the church. We went out Street Preaching nothing confrontational really happened but we still got to witness to a couple hundred people.
In October we went to Atlanta for a preachers meeting, where we preached at Georgia State for three afternoons. It got rough a little but nothing much and we had some pretty good conversations. During the whole time the students were out there almost all were against us yet there were still some who agreed with us. The students were holding signs and singing "No hate at Georgia State," and had signs stating the same along with some other things. Overall it was really good.
We are presently in IL. Where we are going to be doing some street preaching and door knocking a lot because it is the second most important place for the Mormons as Joseph Smith died around here and such, it is a lot of fun to go and preach in front of the temple, where dad stirred up the gardener last time we were here. We just took a little side trip down to Pittsburg Kansas to meet with a pastor we know in the area.
