God Thinking LXX - Have You Caught The Vision? 3

"God laid the foundation and prepared His people for the coming Messiah, so that when Jesus would come as a little baby - to be born in Bethlehem - His people would come and bow down and show recognition.

There should have been 10,000,000 people ready and prepared for the coming Messiah, and this would have happened if they had believed what God had told them.

But what happened?
God’s people weren’t there.
Just Joseph, Mary, Simeon, Anna the prophetess, Elizabeth and a few sages from afar recognized and celebrated the birth of the Savior.  I know that the shepherds were there, but they were notified by the angels of the birth of Jesus.

In the first two thousand years man had become so far from God that God destroyed them.

Then in the second, two-thousand years - even with perpetual revelation - mankind chose for themselves religion over relationship.

God’s chosen people had devised a system that would sustain them and meet their spiritual needs - apart from the truth (of and in) God’s Word.  They built a religious system that sustained their need for self preservation apart from God’s impartation.

When Jesus, the Son of God, came unto His own - did they receive Him as the Savior of the world? No, they chose religion over relationship. Does that sound familiar?
