Christmas Morning & The Gates of Hades

The story of the birth of Christ is full of beauty and warmth stirring up golden memories of Christmases past. Gabriel’s visit to Mary, the birth of Jesus, the manger, the star the Wisemen followed, shepherds asleep in the field, all make us smile and feel good inside. But there is a dark chapter in the Christmas story. The evil and jealous King Herod, who stands as a type of Satan and the spirit of antichrist, killing children in hopes of stopping the Son of God. The bible records this dark part because it shows us the nature of the incarnation. Showing us the birth of Christ isn’t meant to give the world a warm feeling for a few days in December. It shows us that God becoming flesh was an act of war, an invasion from heaven, storming the gates of Hades to set people free from the jaws of death.

From Series: "Plundering The Kingdom Of Darkness"

In this study, we focus on passages in the Book of Acts where the Kingdom of God and the kingdom of darkness clash. We watch the sick get healed, the demon-possessed delivered, and blind eyes opened as Jesus kicks Satan to the curb. Church, we learn that we have the advantage in this warfare and need not be afraid.
