Spirit of Death Defeated
Matthew 2:16 (AMP) Then Herod, when he realized that he had been misled by the wise men, was furiously enraged, and he sent and put to death all the male children in Bethlehem and in all that territory who were two years old and under, reckoning according to the date which he had investigated diligently and had learned exactly from the wise men.
The spirit of death is still active in the world today. Horrible atrocities are reported daily as this spirit of anti-Christ rages against the Jews, because Jesus was a Jew and the Messiah of Israel, and the Christians, because they follow Jesus as the Only Begotten Son, the Christ, of God.
After all these years, nothing has changed. The murderous devil is still trying to destroy the Seed of the woman and His seed.
Genesis 3:15 (NKJV) And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel.” Islam is the instrument of Satan in this hour, just has Hitler was in his hour, and is just as determined to annihilate every Jew and Christian from the face of the earth.

Galatians 4:4 (NKJV) But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law,
God will not allow His chosen people, nor His covenant Church to be overcome. The birth of the Jewish State of Israel is as much a sign to the Jew as the birth of the Christ Child is to the Christian. God will protect just as he did the baby Jesus when Herod sought to slay him.
Loving protection is one of the Christmas gifts from God to His children.
