Pastor Bobby’s Sermon 16, December, 2017

John 1:1-5
Advent season. Advent = coming.
Jesus is coming. It is preparation of His arrival.

No matter how dark our situation, God will come through for us.

In the beginning of creation, the earth was dark and formless. Then, God came and began creating.

2000 years ago, the shepherd was outside under the dark night.
The angels of God appeared to them and lighted up the dark night.

No matter how dark the situation is, be it physical, emotional or spiritual darkness, Lord Jesus is coming to light up our world.

He is coming:

1. To dispel the darkness of sin.

Proverb 4:18-19
Rm 7:19,24
When we live in sin, we live in darkness and we deserve death.

Nevertheless, Jesus is coming to set us free from sin and death.

2. To dispel the darkness of sickness

Ps 91:5-6
Disease can suddenly leave us in darkness.
However, Lord Jesus came to heal us of diseases.

3. To dispel the darkness of satan’s oppression

Acts 10:38,.John 10:10
Lord Jesus sets free those who are oppressed by the devil.
The devil comes to steal, kill and destroy.
Lord Jesus comes to give abundant life.

4. To dispel the darkness of setbacks

Job 30:26
Setback may leave us in anxiety and darkness.
It seems when we look for good, darkness comes.
However, as we come to God in prayer, God will come through for us.
