“[TO GIVE KNOWLEDGE OF SALVATION UNTO HIS PEOPLE BY THE REMISSION OF THEIR SINS]. Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us, [TO GIVE LIGHT TO THEM THAT SIT IN DARKNESS] and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace” (Luke 1:77-79).
Therefore, any celebration of the CHRISTMAS SEASON without JESUS is an ABSOLUTE WASTE OF TIME because he says:
“[THE TIME IS FULFILLED], and the Kingdom of God is at hand: [REPENT YE, AND BELIEVE THE GOSPEL]” (Mark 1:15).
“[I CAME] not [TO CALL] the righteous, but [SINNERS TO REPENTANCE]” (Luke 5:32).
“Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3).
“[FOR I CAME DOWN FROM HEAVEN, NOT TO DO MINE OWN WILL], but the will of him that sent me” (John 6:38).
“[AND THIS GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM SHALL BE PREACHED IN ALL THE WORLD] for a witness unto all nations; [AND THEN SHALL THE END COME]” (Matthew 24:14).
“But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; [THAT IF THOU SHALT CONFESS WITH THY MOUTH THE LORD JESUS, AND SHALT BELIEVE IN THINE HEART THAT GOD HATH RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, THOU SHALT BE SAVED]. For with [THE HEART MAN BELIEVETH UNTO RIGHTEOUSNESS; AND WITH THE MOUTH CONFESSION IS MADE UNTO SALVATION]” (Romans 10:8-10).
