Our Pastor, Elder Jonathan Cook, then provided a very vibrant sermon from Micah 5:1-5, with supporting scriptures that included John 1:1-5, Matthew 2:1-14 and 27:35, Isaiah 2:2-4, 9:6-7 and 11:1, Luke 1:30-33, Zechariah 6:12, Colossians 1:3, 1 Samuel 16:1-5, Romans 15:8-13, Psalm 22 and 16:10, Revelation 4:8-11, 5, 7:10-14, and 12. Elder Cook emphasized how Old Testament scripture repeatedly recorded details surrounding the coming of the Messiah, Jesus Christ, through a number of different prophets over a period spanning many years, and hundreds of years before these events actually took place. Not only did these prophets accurately identify that He would come through the lineage of King David and his father Jesse, but that he would come from the little town of Bethlehem in Judah and that He would become both ruler and king and would be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Elder Cook also emphasized that Satan had repeatedly attempted to stop the plan of God to bring forth our Redeemer, but to no avail – – God’s plan could not be thwarted by any act of Satan or of evil men. Elder Cook also taught that all things were not only created by Him, they are and were created for His pleasure and He is still today our glorious, reigning, and victorious Savior from everlasting to everlasting. The fulfillment of all these historical prophesies as already recorded in the New Testament can give us great confidence about the absolute surety of those that have yet to come to pass, yet most certainly will.
