§ 33 In the Old Testament, we find out that when a man had a great kingdom and he had a--he had a son borned into his home, then that son, of course, was a son as soon as he was born. But yet he had no inheritance until he was positionally placed in, adopted into the family. They call it adoption.
§ 34 Now, when a son was borned, he was a son as soon as he was born. He was a born son to that home. But yet, he didn't have any inheritance, until he come to a place that he'd proved himself a son. And then, when he was proved to be a son, then he was adopted into the family. And the law of adoption made him equal holder with his father.
§ 45 Galatians 1 tells us that we were predestinated to the adoption of sons by Jesus Christ, predestinated of God, though many are called but few are chosen. The chosen was chose at the beginning. Now, but we were predestinated to the adoption of the children of God by Jesus Christ.
§ 12 We think that how He was borned in this world, the Son of God. But at the age of thirty, God placed Him. Upon the banks of Jordan that day, when He was standing in the water, dripping from His locks, God vindicated that as His Son and said, "This is My Beloved Son; in Whom I am well pleased." Adoption, placing, placing into His Kingdom for the work that He was to finish. And how we're thankful tonight that He finished the course. Then despised the shame, but bore it, and was nailed at Calvary as substitute for us, dying in capital punishment: Borned in a stable, went out in capital punishment.
