For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
(Isaiah 9:6 KJV)
Between Isaiah and the time Jesus was Born is / was a space of some 700 years -
But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
(Matthew 1:20 KJV)
And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.
(Matthew 1:25 KJV)
Jesus – my gracious as I write this I can feel the presence of the Lord. Jesus, one name, one word, one spoken prophecy and one soon coming King of Kings –
This name was given by the command of God, Matthew 1:16, 21, and 23. The goodness of God is manifest to us in His Son - Jesus!
The word Christmas originated as a compound meaning "Christ's Mass". It is derived from the Middle English Christemasse and Old English Cristes mæsse, a phrase first recorded in 1038. "Cristes" is fromGreek Χριστός Christos and "mæsse" is from Latin missa (the holy mass). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christmas
No matter the word, the world, the time or the Place – Christmas is all about Jesus!
It matters not what Muslims may try, what Obama may do and what Atheists and others can concoct with their thimble minded grey matter. You cannot snuff out the Light of the World. A prophesied birth, the birth then taking place, a baby growing into a man – proclaiming just exactly what Isaiah spoke in Isaiah 61:1 – Jesus spoke in Luke, when He said: The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
(Luke 4:18-19 KJV)
Not some “emaciated worm” as one popular minister called Him, not a man raped by Twelve Roman soldiers as another female and popular minister said of Him – not a Man who committed suicide as another popular fool has spoken of Him.
Not lights that flash, not toys, not electronic marvels, not a tree or its trimmings, not a carol, nor is He a fire, hot cocoa, and a story of a ghost, a miser and a night of change after three visits – He never yells any catch phrases, will not get stuck in the chimney definitely has a list of names and He is always dressed in white!
You know with all the hype, madness, sales, money spent and millions of decorations, festivities and more - Christmas is still the loneliest time of year for thousands of people and it is then that Suicide is so high, in fact higher than any other time of the year. People try all the gifts, gadgets, alcohol and more. They dress nicely, they seem to “feel” more than any other time and yet and still someone makes Christmas to be other than what it should be. Someone takes their life, someone spend hell in eternity.
I dare not say that all suicides die lost, but the far greater majority of those who have committed this act of murder are in hell right now. Jesus came to Save us (St. John 10:10) and wishes not for us to perish.
This year, this day, every day and every chance you get. Share “Christmas” with someone.
Very soon He will be coming back and He will take us home to be with Him, if we are ready. So many people are not ready, not true to Him because the Pulpit has created a less than appetizing chance for Him to be known. It tells people they are OK, or if they were baptized, if they were sprinkled, if they did “works”, if they donated and much more. Some will not speak on Jesus this year because they are too “politically correct” and afraid of the government or their head office.
I urge you today to trust Him for who He really is, stand tall and proud and speak His name as loud as you can, say Merry Christmas and not happy Christmas or happy holidays – have a Christmas tree, Christmas cookies, Christmas carols, Christmas Joy-
Share Christmas with someone year round, by sharing Jesus Christ with them today!
If you will stand for Him, He will stand for you!
After all, He is why we are here……
