I am amazed at all the press concerning Obama's Birth Certificate. My humble opinion is that he should have released this thing 2 years ago. But He has his own reasoning for doing so today and I hope that it allows more time to be spent on our economy.
But I was thinking about the ONE Birth Certificate that is SO MUCH MORE IMPORTANT than Obama's Birth Certificate. It is the Birth Certificate of the Saviour of the WORLD, the Lord Jesus Christ found in Matthew 1:1-16.
I will list it below and I hope that you will read through it and check it out. While not many people are talking about this certificate I wish they would. Because verse 16 shows us IT IS THE GENEALOGY of JESUS. And if you were to study through the details starting with Abraham in verse 2 and following through the entire genealogy you would learn that Jesus is indeed the Messiah and comes from the lineage of David.
This discovery would then matter to each and every one of us in helping us to name him as the Lord of our lives.
And the bottom line is... in another 2000 years from now, NO ONE will care or be talking about Obama's certificate. Yet 2000 years from NOW the Certificate of Jesus' birth will still be found, the history and record of his birth in Matthew Chapter 1.
Only ONE is qualified to be the Lord and Saviour of the World. It is Jesus Christ and you can read all about his birth and get all the details starting in Matthew 1.
