As we enter the last few months of the year, we are reminded that the Christmas season is fast approaching. Christmas is the holiday that is celebrated as Jesus' birthday and this holiday is celebrated worldwide in every civilized culture on earth using different ways to honor Jesus' birthday.
In the American culture, when a person purchases a "big ticket item", that item usually comes with an Instruction Manual or booklet. The manufacturer of the item provides this documentation to acquaint the user with the specifications, uses and operating procedures of the item. The same is true concerning our lives here on earth. The "instruction manual" that we have is called the Holy Bible (an acronym for Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth), (the King James version, 1611 Edition).
The Holy Bible is the living WORD of God and covers all earthly situations, past, present and future. The living WORD means that God's statements stand for all eternity, past, present and future, and is unchanging. The Bible explains the reason for Jesus coming to earth, Jesus' birthday and what He accomplished while He was here.
Every since the original sin (disobedience) was committed by the first Adam and man's parallel walk with the LORD was broken (because God cannot look upon sin), then man's Spirit became a vessel of darkness (the light of the living God went out) and man began his search for a way to restore that light (relight the candle with a match) as if that were possible (by doing good works, turning to the occult, and falling for the wild schemes and deceptive lies of the devil) to accomplish that feat. All of these actions worked to no effect and man remained in darkness until God put His backup plan for redemption into action by sending His Son to reclaim that which was lost (by Jesus redemptive work at the cross.) This mission was accomplished successfully and now what was lost (the dominion of the earth) has been returned to the Son. Since the Son holds the legal title deed to the earth (being the legal owner) then He can proceed with His original intent which was / and still is to make the whole earth a colony of the Kingdom of Heaven.) This means earth will be a mirror image of Heaven (under man's control (a mini-heaven if you will.) There is one way and only one way for man to reclaim the title deed to the earth and that is for him to become co-owners on the deed with Jesus (He in me and I in Him.) Jesus makes this offer to man as a free gift (salvation and a restored walk with the Father.) Thus, to accomplish this one must come to Jesus.
Many people (both those who "claim" to know and accept Jesus as their LORD and Savior and those who are "unbelievers) miss the true meaning of Christmas.
It has been revealed that "Christmas Day should be observed as a model for how we are supposed to conduct ourselves for the remaining 364 days of the year", continually.
One way that we can all honor Jesus' birthday during the coming Christmas season and for the remainder of the year is to follow His doctrine (teachings). The only way to find out what His teachings were is to read His "book of instructions), the Holy Bible. Now keep in mind that this book is not an ordinary book, it is the living WORD of God and must be handled with reverence and respect. One must truly be seeking knowledge and revelation of the scriptures to get a true understanding of what they are reading.
For this to happen, a person needs the assistance of the Holy Spirit to interpret and give Spiritual discernment (true understanding without error) of the scriptures being read to the reader. If the person is truly seeking more understanding of the Holy Bible then this procedure must be followed every day, preferably at the beginning of your day so that they will obtain guidance for that day.
Another way to honor Jesus' birthday is to be obedient to His WORD and to do or actively perform and demonstrate that you understand and accept His teachings as the right way to live our lives and obtain the rewards that He has promised to all who do this. Why wait until we get to Heaven to get a reward for being obedient when we can have it all here and now?
In the book of Genesis, it is stated that God created all things (heaven and earth and all things seen and unseen) by speaking them into existence using His Holy WORD. This statement explains how we came to be here since we did not create ourselves.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
