The Providence of His Coming (Matthew 1:18-23)Pastor Jared Shumate, December 16, 2018
Part of the His Coming series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Sunday Morning, December 16th, 2018 - His Coming, Part 3 - The Providence of His Coming - Pastor Jared Shumate
Christianity is full of what some people call "five-dollar words." These are big Bible words that we hear at times but never fully understand what they mean. Dispensationalism? The anthropomorphic nature of God? Legalism? Atonement?
This morning Pastor Jared tackles one of those types of words as we continue to examine His Coming. Today we are learning about The Providence of His Coming. But before we can see how it pertains to the birth of Christ have to define the word.
Providence has a meaning preparation, protective care, and provision. All of these apply to the birth of our Savior!
Come listen how the obstacles and opponents were overcome to lead us to a joyous ovation!

18Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. 19Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. 20But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. 21And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. 22Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, 23Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. (KJV)
