Surely, your gold and silver will be a sure defense for you? 17 When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 14 No woman can escape their sinful stare, and of adultery they never have enough.

They went out from us, but they were not really of us; for if they had been of us, they would have remained with us; but they went out, so that it would be shown that they all are not of us. -- just like Luke, Jesus tells us what it is going to be like "in those days" before His second coming -- people will be eating and drinking -- marrying and giving in marriage -- going about their lives like normal -- they'll be coming to church and worshiping the Lord and celebrating the special feast days -- they'll be having Thanksgiving dinner together with their friends and family -- they'll go out shopping after Thanksgiving to start getting ready for Christmas -- they'll decorate their homes -- they'll have parades -- they'll go about life as normal -- but few will look for the second coming of the Messiah -- few will look for Jesus to return -- and why should they? Then they will hammer their swords into plowshares And their spears into pruning hooks; Nation will not lift up sword against nation, And never again will they train for war. -- "in those days" -- but Luke doesn't mean this in the same sense as the old fairy tales did -- by using the phrase, "a long, long time ago, in a land far, far away," the writers of the fairy tales were trying to get you to believe -- at least for a moment -- that the story just might be true -- but Luke goes on after his phrase, "in those days" to tell us that this was the time when Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the whole Roman world and when Quirinius was the governor of Syria -- in other words, Luke is telling us that this is no fable or myth -- it did happen "in those days" -- but it was a real time -- it wasn't a make-believe time -- the dates of these events can be dated with certainty -- they happened when Augustus was Caesar in Rome and Quirinius was governor in Syria -- so that's how we know that Jesus was actually born around 6 B. 7-8 But at the same time the Lord rescued Lot out of Sodom because he was a good man, sick of the terrible wickedness he saw everywhere around him day after day. They invent new forms of evil; they disobey their parents. They are doomed to the eternal pits of darkness. The Pharisees, who were lovers of money, heard all of this and were scoffing at Jesus. -- they'd been waiting a long, long time -- almost 2000 years have passed since Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead -- Jesus hasn't come yet -- so, why should they expect Him to come now?

People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, For people will love only themselves and their money. Thus I will punish the world for its evil And the wicked for their iniquity; I will also put an end to the arrogance of the proud And abase the haughtiness of the ruthless. -- as you know, today we are entering into the season of advent -- Advent marks the beginning of the church calendar -- the start of the Christian year -- advent means "coming" or "arrival" -- and the advent season is a time of celebration of the first coming of Christ and a time of looking forward in eager anticipation for the return of Christ the King -- so, for the next four weeks, we will be preparing our hearts to celebrate the first coming of the Messiah, when God came to earth as a man, when Jesus was born in a manger on that first Christmas morning -- now I know that we opened this morning with the traditional story of Jesus' birth from Luke Chapter 2, but I don't want us to follow the way of the world and rush into Christmas like they are doing -- I want us to slow down and savor the season -- to wait in anticipation once again for the coming of Christ, just like we used to wait in anticipation as kids for Christmas morning -- in order to do so, we are going to have to return in our hearts and our spirits to the place the world was before Christ came the first time -- and we are going to have to remember in our hearts and spirits the place where we were before Christ came to us for the first time II. Found occasionally in the LXX. -- well, in order to find that out, we are going to have to go back to the start of time -- everyone in here is familiar with the story of Adam and Eve -- God made Adam and placed him in the Garden of Eden -- and then God made Eve from Adam's rib to be Adam's help-meet -- his mate -- flesh of his flesh and bone of his bone -- they lived happily for a time, until the serpent came into the Garden and tempted Eve and caused her and Adam to sin against God -- when God came to the Garden some time later and discovered that sin had entered His Garden, God cast Adam and Eve from the Garden and cursed the ground and the serpent -- but, He did more than that -- in cursing the serpent, God promised a time when the curse of sin and the curse on the earth would be lifted by a Messiah -- by One who would come and who would crush the head of the serpent and defeat him once and for all -- this was the first promise of the Messiah -- and this promise burned itself into the hearts of Adam and Eve and all creation -- from that moment on, everyone and everything looked forward in anticipation for the coming of the Savior who would redeem them from the curse -- eventually, God would call Abram to raise up a people -- the Israelites -- who would be the keepers of the promise -- the keepers of the covenant that He made with them to provide them with a Savior and to be their God -- so the people got ready for Messiah -- in essence, they prepared a meal -- they set the table -- they had everything ready -- and then they waited -- and waited -- and waited some more -- when they started to get too tired of waiting, God would speak to them through His prophets and remind them of His promise -- the Messiah was coming -- it just wasn't time yet -- and so the people waited and waited and waited -- what do you do when you are waiting for someone and it seems like they have forgotten to come? They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. 19 But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. 4 For God did not spare even the angels who sinned, but threw them into hell, chained in gloomy caves and darkness until the judgment day.
