Christmas Is About Christ

Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. Matthew 1:18 KJV

The conception of Mary, the mother of Jesus was a supernatural act of the Holy Ghost (Holy Spirit). It brought about the birth of the Only Begotten Son of God.

Jesus was born a human without a sin nature because His Father was the Holy God Almighty. He was very God and very man. God sent His Son to redeem whosoever will receive Him.

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. John 3:17 KJV

To Celebrate Christmas is to Celebrate the birth of the Messiah of Israel and Savior of the world.

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.  And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.  And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.  And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,  Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. Luke 2:9‭-‬14 KJV

Christmas Miracle

And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. Luke 1:35 KJV

Think about it: Jesus, our Savior, was conceived of a virgin overshadowed by The Holy Ghost in fulfillment of a prophesy given hundreds of years earlier.

Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. Isaiah 7:14 KJV

The Creator of everything sees to it that every word He speaks comes to pass in the exact time that He purposes.

The Lord of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand:  Isaiah 14:24 KJV

And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe. John 14:29 KJV

Receive the gift of God’s saving grace, Jesus the Christ, this Christmas season. It’s the Gift that lasts forever.

Life Change

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23 KJV

Whether you are a  sin sick individual or a born-again Christian, our verse today calls you to a higher life.

To live life to the fullest one must be filled with the presence of God in Christ. So full, in fact, that the sin nature is driven from your soul.

Afterward Jesus , , ,  said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee. John 5:14 KJV

And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Ephesians 5:18 KJV

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Matthew 5:6 KJV

A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. James 1:8 KJV

One Thing

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; 1 Timothy 2:5 KJV

These two eternal truths are so simple, yet so profound. They are also inseparable. There is no wsy to know God with out knowing Jesus, His only begotten Son.

Jesus, Himself, is recorded as stating the following:

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6 KJV

Give yourself a gift this Christmas. Receive the gift of righteousness, peace and joy this Christmas season. Receive Jesus as Lord and Savior and get to know Him.

No Jesus, No peace. Know Jesus, know peace.
