1 Welcome to Hope Fellowship Church Our Mission: “To know the triune God in the person of Jesus Christ and to make Him known.”

2 Message The Spirit of Christmas Past

3 Message The Spirit of Christmas Past: Christ’s Birth Foretold

4 Message The Story… Matthew 1: Luke 1:26-38

5 Message Matthew 1:1–2 (NKJV) 1 The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham: 2 Abraham begot Isaac, Isaac begot Jacob, and Jacob begot Judah and his brothers.

6 Message Matthew 1:16–25 (NKJV) 16 And Jacob begot Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus who is called Christ.

7 Message 17 So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations, from David until the captivity in Babylon are fourteen generations, and from the captivity in Babylon until the Christ are fourteen generations.

8 Message 18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit.

9 Message Luke 1:26–38 (NKJV) 26 Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth,

10 Message 27 to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28 And having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!”

11 Message 29 But when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this was. 30 Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.

12 Message 31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name J ESUS. 32 He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David.

13 Message 33 And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.” 34 Then Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I do not know a man?”

14 Message 35 And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God.

15 Message 36 Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month for her who was called barren. 37 For with God nothing will be impossible.”

16 Message 38 Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.

17 Message Matthew 1:16–25 (NKJV) 19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not wanting to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly.

18 Message 20 But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.

19 Message 21 And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name J ESUS, for He will save His people from their sins.” 22 So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying:

20 Message 23 “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.” 24 Then Joseph, being aroused from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and took to him his wife,

21 Message 25 and did not know her till she had brought forth her firstborn Son. And he called His name J ESUS.

22 Message

23 Message Psalm 103:20–21 (NKJV) 20 Bless the L ORD, you His angels, Who excel in strength, who do His word, Heeding the voice of His word. 21 Bless the L ORD, all you His hosts, You ministers of His, who do His pleasure.

24 Message Hebrews 1:14 (NKJV) 14 Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?

25 Message WHY?

26 Message In the beginning…

27 Message

28 Message Genesis 3:15 (NKJV) 15 And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel.”

29 Message 2 Peter 3:8–9 (NKJV) 8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

30 Message Galatians 4:4–5 (NKJV) 4 But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, 5 to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.

31 Message Luke 1:28 (NKJV) 28 And having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!”

32 Message Luke 1:30 (NKJV) 30 Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.

33 Message 31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name J ESUS. 32 He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David.

34 Message 33 And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.”

35 Message 34 Then Mary said to the angel, “How can this be…?

36 Message 35 And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God.

37 Message 36 Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month for her who was called barren.

38 Message 37 For with God nothing will be impossible.”

39 Message WHAT ABOUT US…?

40 Message 1 John 3:1–3 (NKJV) 1 Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.

41 Message 2 Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. 3 And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.

42 Message Romans 5:5 (NKJV) 5 Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

43 Message 38 Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.

44 Message 24 Then Joseph, being aroused from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and took to him his wife,
