LOVE AND DAILY MERCIES OF GOD.

We human beings must have a DAILY consciousness that it is because of the sure mercies of God that we are not turned into dust!

“If he set his heart upon man, if he gather unto himself his spirit and his breath; all flesh shall perish together, and man shall turn again unto dust” (Job 34:14-15).

Therefore, we must give GOD thanks and praise DAILY in the name of his only begotten Son JESUS!

“It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new [EVERY MORNING]: great is thy faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:22-23).

Especially during this Holiday Season we must be reminded that JESUS, the only begotten Son of God, “The Christ of God” (Luke 9:20) was sent to this earth to gave his life for all human beings (John 3:16-18).

“Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us” (Matthew 1:23).

“And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways; To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins. (Luke 1:76-77).

“And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21).

“He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end” (Luke 1:32-33).
The Christmas Way

In GLORY of the FATHER, the SON and the HOLY SPIRIT.

“For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one” (1 John 5:7–8).
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made” (John 1:1-3).

“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth” (John 1:14).

“BELOVED, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: [EVERY SPIRIT THAT CONFESSETH THAT JESUS CHRIST IS COME IN THE FLESH IS OF GOD]:

And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world” (1 John 4:1-4).

“Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that [BELIEVETH THAT JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD]? This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the [SPIRIT IS TRUTH]” (1 John 5:5–6).

Any celebration of Christmas without glorying the FATHER, SON and HOLY SPIRIT and coming to KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH is an absolute waste of time!

“Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us” (Matthew 1:23).

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:16-18).

GOD is the ONLY LIVING GOD.

“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus: who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time” (1 Timothy 2:5–6).

“Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end” (Hebrews 3:12-14).

JESUS is GOD’s GIFT to Human beings.

Turn on the television to any main network/cable channel or open an internet browser to any main search engine or turn on the radio to any main radio station, and surely we would not see or hear anything repeatedly praising God for sending into this world his only begotten Son Jesus to this earth (John 3:16-17).

This is the irony of this all: Christmas is being celebrated without Jesus: the “Christ of God” or “Salvation of God” (Luke 9:20) (Luke 2:30-32).

The birth of Jesus Christ is probably the most significant event of time yet this holiday season the word of God is being ignored by countless people. However, let us spread and share the message of God’s love for us all (John 3:16-17) (1 John 4:8-10).

“And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21). “He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end” (Luke 1:32-33).

JESUS is the SALVATION OF GOD.

Human beings must celebrate the birth of Jesus every day for the very reason that God so loved the world that he give us his only begotten Son (John 3:16): Jesus, the Christ of God, the salvation of God (Luke 2:30-32) is God’s gift to human beings.

This was made apparent by Simeon, a just and devout man in Jerusalem who it was revealed by the Holy Spirit that he would not die until he had seen the Lord’s Christ (Luke 2: 25-26). When Simeon saw Jesus for the first time he said:

“For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, which thou hast prepared before the face of all people; A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel” (Luke 2:30-32).

Therefore, let us not get carried away with the things of this world because truly the only gift worthwhile obtaining in our lifetime is the gift of light which is hidden with Jesus Christ (Colossians 3:3) (1 Corinthians 15:45–46).

Christmas Bible verse

The BIRTH of JESUS?

There continues to this day debate about the Sabbath day, whether Jesus was born in December and the list goes on. To try to refer to people as pagans or heathens for celebrating the birth of Christ or Christmas goes against the word of God.

Therefore, for those among us judging people for celebrating Christmas, please be reminded to not point fingers at others and recall when the scribes and Pharisees brought to Jesus a woman taken in adultery to have her stoned to death. Jesus then asked: “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her” (John 8:7).

The most important is for people to come to JESUS CHRIST who is the “Christ of God” or “Salvation of God” (Luke 9:20) (Luke 2:30-32)

JESUS says: “Search the Scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life” (John 5:39–40).

“I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life” (John 8:12).
COME to JESUS!

FREE GIFT.

Greatest Gift of this Lifetime is to accept Jesus Christ as Lord, Savior and King.

“For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God” (Colossians 3:3).

“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27).
“Therefore as by the offense of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the [FREE GIFT] came upon all men unto justification of life” (Romans 5:18).

“For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive” (1 Corinthians 15:21–22).

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).

“Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth” (Colossians 3:2).

Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God says: “Search the Scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life” (John 5:39–40).

“I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death” (Revelation 1:18).

We must dally keep our hearts fixed on getting to HEAVEN where our Lord, Savior and King Jesus Christ dwells FOREVER.

“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, ‘If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me’” (Matthew 16:24). “And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me” (Matthew 10:38).

“Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal. But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also” (Matthew 6:19-21).

“For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him” (Isaiah 64:4).

“The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD” (Lamentation 3:24-26).

When the LAST DAY comes TIME will be gone FOREVER!

When the sun goes down on this day, it will be passed away forever!

When this Christmas Season ends, it will be gone FOREVER!

When the fireworks celebrations ends at the beginning of 2019, they will be gone FOREVER!

When Jesus comes back on the Last Day at the End of the World for the Day of Judgment, at the end of that Day, TIME will be gone FORVER (Matthew 24:36) (Revelation 11:18)!

There will NEVER be TIME again.

“And sware by him that liveth forever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be [TIME NO LONGER]” (Revelation 10:6).

“Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power” (1 Corinthians 15:24).

“And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, ‘It is done’” (Revelation 16:17).

Before it is too late: “Work out your own [SALVATION] with fear and trembling that ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the [DAY OF CHRIST]” (Philippians 2:12, 1:10).

“Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near” (Isaiah 55:6).

Burning City

Be a Cheerful GIVER!

As this holiday season begins we must always rememeber that God gave us his only begotten Son who gave his life as a ransom for humankind (John 3:16) (1 Timothy 2:5–6).

We must also be reminded of these words by the Apostle Paul, not only during this holiday season but every day of our lives when he said: “But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9:6-7).

Therefore, always remember the word of God teaches us to support the weak: “and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive’” (Acts 20:35).
