E- Poor Entrance Luke 2:6-7

E字母 – 可怜的入场 路加福音2:6-7

First impressions count.. or do they?

第一印象很重要……是吗?

When royalty is born, they are usually born with lots of excitement, they are born in privilege and position. But Jesus was born in a stable and not a palace, he was born to poor parents, he was born in a backwater so to speak. He was not welcomed into the world by many the first time he came. One day, all will see him and be forced to admit that he is Lord of Lords and king of Kings.

当皇室成员出生时,他们通常会有很多兴奋点,他们出生在特权和地位中。但耶稣出生在一个马厩里,而不是宫殿里,他出生在贫穷的父母家里,可以说他出生在一个落后的地方。他第一次来到这个世界时,并没有受到很多人的欢迎。有一天,所有人都会看到他,被迫承认他是万主之主,万王之王。

M- Magnificent announcement Luke 2:13-14

M字母 – 宏伟的公告 路加福音 2:13-14

It’s interesting that thousands and thousands of angels announced the birth of Jesus, they must have made such a racket, but no one but the shepherds heard them. The star was up in the sky, but no one saw it but the wise men. Today, we as Christians, make the same magnificent announcement, but very few hear us, we tell of Jesus, but all people want to know of is: Santa, Presents and all the other things that really do not matter. The announcement is being made, but are you hearing it?

有趣的是,数以千计的天使宣布了耶稣的诞生,他们一定发出了这样的喧嚣,但除了牧羊人,没有人听到他们。星星在天上,但除了智者,没有人看到它。今天,我们作为基督徒,发出了同样宏伟的公告,但很少有人听到我们,我们讲述了耶稣,但人们想知道的是:圣诞老人、礼物和所有其他真正不重要的东西。公告已经发出,但你听到了吗?

M – Lowly manger

M字母 – 卑微的马槽

The stable was the lowest place in the house, it was the place for animals, it must have been smelly and dirty and yet, Jesus was born in a place like that. He left the majesty on high, to come to a place like the stable . It had been prophesised that he would be born this way Micah 5:2.

马厩是房子里最低的地方,是饲养动物的地方,它肯定又臭又脏,然而,耶稣就出生在这样的地方。他离开了高高在上的威严,来到了像马厩这样的地方。有人预言他将以这种方式出生,弥迦书5:2。

The lowering of Jesus was incredible, he came to us, he was a king, but he gave up all that to come to us, he was born like us, he knew hardship right from the moment of his birth. We couldn’t go to God, we have no inclination to go to God, so he came down to us.

耶稣的降生是不可思议的,他来到我们身边,他是一个国王,但他放弃了这一切来到我们身边,他和我们一样出生,他从出生的那一刻起就知道艰难。我们不能去找上帝,我们没有去找上帝的倾向,所以他降到了我们这里。

A-Acknowledge Him

A 字母 – 认可他

Both the shepherds and the wise men came and worshipped him, Herod was frightened of him and the religious leaders, who knew all about him, were unconcerned, just like the Romans. All these attitudes still exist today, you either reverence and worship him, you are scared because of how he will expose your sin, or you are completely unconcerned and he means nothing to you. Times do not change do they, people’s attitudes to Jesus do not change.

牧羊人和智者都来敬拜他,希律王对他感到害怕,而对他了如指掌的宗教领袖却不以为然,就像罗马人一样。所有这些态度今天仍然存在,你要么敬畏和崇拜他,你害怕因为他将如何暴露你的罪,或者你完全不关心,他对你毫无意义。时代不会改变吧,人们对耶稣的态度也不会改变。

The most important question is

最重要的问题在于

WHAT WILL YOU DO WITH JESUS?

你将与耶稣一起做什么?

N- Wonderful name/names Isaiah 9:6

N字母 – 奇妙的名字/名称 以赛亚书9:6

We all have names, some more than others. But no one has ever been called what Jesus was called, and that was 700 years before his birth.

我们都有名字,有些人比其他人更多。但从来没有人被称为耶稣的名字,而那是在他出生前700年。

He is the wonderful counselor, one whose wisdom is beyond anything that has been seen before, even from Solomon.

他是奇妙的顾问,他的智慧超越了以前所见的一切,甚至是所罗门的智慧。

Whatever your needs are, He is there to help you with His counsel, His truth and by His Spirit. What do you need counsel for today?

无论你的需要是什么,他都在那里用他的建议、他的真理和他的灵来帮助你。 你今天需要什么建议?

He is the Mighty God, a name that shows his deity. He is fully God, one with the Father.

他是全能的神,这个名字表明他的神性。他是完全的神,与父合一。

He has power and authority over all things, all people and all spiritual powers. You have nothing to fear if He is your Lord and Savior. What fears do you need His help to overcome?

祂有能力和权柄控制一切事物、一切人和一切属灵力量。 如果他是你的主和救主,你就没有什么好怕的。 你需要他的帮助来克服哪些恐惧?

He is the everlasting father; he is the King. He is a king that cares for his people. He has always existed.

他是永远的父亲;他是国王。他是一个关心他的人民的国王。他一直都存在。

The Hebrews means “Father of Eternity,” and He has not only always existed, He has authority over time, events in history and your life too. Because He is one with the Father, though He is the Son, He has the same authority as the Father. In what areas do you need to remember that He is the authority, and you are not?

希伯来语的意思是 “永恒之父”,他不仅一直存在,而且对时间、历史事件和你的生活也有权威。 因为他与父是一体的,虽然他是儿子,但他有与父同样的权威。 在哪些方面你需要记住,他是权威,而你不是?

He is the prince of peace, he is the one, who brings peace. He is the one who brings peace between God and man.

他是和平的王子,他是那个带来和平的人。他是在神和人之间带来和平的人。

He not only gives peace between Himself and you, but also between you and others, as well as inner peace, because of His grace, forgiveness and gives honour by adopting you into His family for eternity. If you do not know Him as your Lord and Savior, you cannot have peace with Him. If you do not have peace with Him, you cannot have peace. Do you have His peace today? If not, the only way is to turn away from your sin and shame and put your faith or full trust in Him alone for salvation.

他不仅在他自己和你之间给予和平,而且在你和其他人之间给予和平,以及内心的和平,因为他的恩典、宽恕,并通过接纳你进入他的家庭而给予你荣誉,直到永远。 如果你不知道他是你的主和救主,你就不能与他有和平。 如果你不与他和平相处,你就不能得到平安。 今天你有他的平安吗? 如果没有,唯一的办法就是离开你的罪和羞耻,把你的信心或完全信任放在他身上,只为得到救赎。

U- Undoing the fall in the garden Genesis 3:15

U字母 – 挽回在园中的堕落 创世纪3:15

Satan had lied to the woman in the garden and because of the fall, man was now alienated from God. But God knew that this would happen, and now was the time, that the fall was going to be put right. The promise of Genesis 3:15, was now going to be fulfilled.

撒旦在花园里对女人撒了谎,由于堕落,人现在与上帝疏远了。但上帝知道这种情况会发生,现在是时候了,堕落要得到纠正。创世纪3:15的承诺现在要实现了。

Sin which had held sway, was now going to be dealt with, the destination of Jesus was the cross, the stable led to the cross, in just over 33 years, Jesus went to the cross to deal the final death nail to sin, satan and also death.

一直控制着的罪现在要被处理了,耶稣的目的地是十字架,马厩通向十字架,在短短33年多的时间里,耶稣走上了十字架,给罪、撒旦和死亡钉上了最后的死亡钉子。

E- Encountering grace Ephesians 2:1-10

E字母 – 遇到恩典 以弗所书2:1-10

Jesus came down to earth and lived a perfect life, because we couldn’t and can’t. He paid the sacrifice, because we couldn’t. He was the substitute for us. We couldn’t save ourselves, we were and are helpless and hopeless, we are unable to help others, so one had to come.

耶稣来到世上,过着完美的生活,因为我们不能也不可能。他付出了牺牲,因为我们做不到。他是我们的替代品。我们无法拯救自己,我们过去和现在都很无助和无望,我们无法帮助别人,所以必须有一个人来。

He came so that he could open the way, so that sin could be dealt with, and that the penalty of sin, was laid on him. God was able to show his grace to us, because his beloved son, paid the price for sin, he took the wrath of the Father, his holy righteous anger, that was poured out upon his son, so that he could show sinful men and women his grace.

他的到来是为了开辟道路,让罪得到处理,让罪的惩罚落在他身上。上帝能够向我们展示他的恩典,因为他的爱子为罪付出了代价,他承受了天父的愤怒,他神圣的公义之怒,浇灌在他的儿子身上,所以他能够向有罪的男人和女人展示他的恩典。

This Christmas, it is time to stop trying to save yourselves.

这个圣诞节,是时候停止试图拯救你们自己了。

He came to save his people from their sins, because they are unable to save themselves.

他来拯救他的子民脱离他们的罪,因为他们无法自救。

L-Life

L字母 – 生命

We come to the last letter and we come to this fact. This Christmas, you will receive many presents, but have you received Christ?

我们来到了最后一封信,我们来到了这个事实。这个圣诞节,你会收到许多礼物,但你收到了基督吗?

Rejecting Jesus, is like opening the present, and then playing with the wrapping paper, instead of opening the present. So many people, play with the wrapping people and don’t open the present.

拒绝耶稣,就像打开礼物,然后玩弄包装纸,而不是打开礼物。许多人玩弄包装纸而不打开礼物。

People love all the tinsel, turkey and presents, but they ignore the real reason for Christmas.

人们喜欢所有的金饰、火鸡和礼物,但他们忽略了圣诞节的真正原因。

The real reason is this, it is something beyond our comprehension, that the king of glory, left his heavenly throne and came and lived among us.

真正的原因是这样的,这是我们无法理解的事情,荣耀的王,离开他天上的宝座,来到我们中间生活。

Jesus humbled himself, he walked and talked upon this earth for 33 years, he lived a perfect life, died a sacrificial death, rose triumphantly from the grave and is now ascended back to heaven.

耶稣谦卑自己,他在这个地球上行走和交谈了33年,他过着完美的生活,以牺牲的方式死去,从坟墓中胜利地复活,现在又升回了天堂。

One day, he will come back, not as a poor baby in a manger, but as a fearsome judge. He will judge everyone. One day, you will face him, you will have to give a reason, why you have decided to reject him.

有一天,他将回来,不是作为一个马槽里的可怜婴儿,而是作为一个可怕的法官。他将审判每个人。有一天,你将面对他,你将不得不给出一个理由,为什么你决定拒绝他。

He offers you life, that offer stands now, but it will run out soon.

他为你提供生命,这个提议现在还有效,但很快就会用完。

Today is the day of salvation.

今天是救恩的日子。
