Notes for Born To Bless All Who Receive Him

Posted on: December 16, 2019

Jesus came to further solidify the choice God gave us in the beginning.  We have the power of choice to accept or reject the finished work of Christ.  In the message I tried to make it clear that every promise of God is a choice on our part to receive it or not.  These study notes contain the Scriptures used as well as Greek definitions of some of the words from the text.  Please listen and follow along using the study notes.

John 1:1-14 NKJV

 1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

 2  He was in the beginning with God.

 3  All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.

 4  In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.

 5  And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

katalambanō - to take eagerly, that is, to seize

 6  There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.

 7  This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe.

 8  He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

 9  That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.

 10  He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him.

Christophany – Old Testament appearance of Christ.

 11  He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him.

paralambanō - to take with one’s self, to join to one’s self

Romans 1:18-21 NKJV  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,  19)  because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.  20)  For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,  21)  because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.

 John 1:12  But as many as received* Him, to them He gave the right** to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13  who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

 *lambanō - to take, to take hold of by the hand

**Exousia – power or authority of choice

 John 1:14  And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

 The Genealogy of Noah:

Adam – Man

Seth – appointed

Enosh – mortal, frail

Kenan – sorrow

Mahalalel – blessed God

Jared – verb meaning, shall come down

Enoch – teaching

Methuselah – his death shall bring

Lamech – despairing

Noah – to bring relief or comfort

Man appointed mortal sorrow; the Blessed God shall come down teaching that His death shall bring the despairing rest or comfort.

 Genesis 6:9 NKJV

 9  This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God.

 Genesis 6:11-13 NKJV

 11  The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.

 12  So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth.

 13  And God said to Noah, "The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

Genesis 6:22 NKJV

 22  Thus Noah did; according to all that God commanded him, so he did.

 Romans 5:19 NKJV

 19  For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man's obedience many will be made righteous.

Hebrews 12:28 NKJV

 28  Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear.
