Merry Christmas to you all around the World!
May your family and friends keep you busy and happy, may your home be filled with loved ones and sweet smells of delicious foods. May all of the busy-ness of the season, shopping, cooking and baking NOT keep you from remembering the REASON for the SEASON! It was, is and always will be JESUS/ YESHUA/YESU! The God who never changes!
He came as the Baby born of the Virgin:
Isaiah 7: 14 Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and she will call Him Immanuel.(BSB)
Isaiah 9:6a For to us a child is born, to us a son is given:(AKJV)
He always will be the One on whose shoulders the government of God’s Kingdom will rest:
Isaiah 9:6b and the government shall be on his shoulder:(AKJV)
And His Name shall be:
Isaiah 9:6b(contd) and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.(AKJV)
He is ALSO our soon coming King whose rule will never end:
Isaiah 9:7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, on the throne of David, and on his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from now on even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.(AKJV)
He is not only the Babe in the Manger,
He is not only the Savior who gave His life on the cross for us to save us from our sins,
He is not only the Lord who rose from the dead, conquering “Death” and offering us eternal life with Him in Heaven simply by us placing our faith in Him, He is our Soon coming KING!
He will come, and every eye will see Him:
Revelation 1: 7 Behold, he comes with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.(AKJV)
To this end we celebrate Christmas:
We thank our God for loving us by giving us the promise of a Redeemer.
We thank our God for sending His One and Only Son to fulfill the promise.
We thank our God for the promise of Heaven. When we think of Jesus, we do and should see all heaven opened up to us.
The Baby Jesus fulfilled more than 350 prophesies of the Old Testament by coming.
The King Jesus will fulfill all remaining prophecy in His second coming!
Have a Blessed Christmas! May His face ever shine upon you, keep looking up . . . He is coming soon!!
