To obtain S A L V A T I O N we must obtain the LIGHT OF LIFE from JESUS CHRIST the ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD.

“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]” (John 3:16-18).

“This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that [GOD IS LIGHT], and in him is no darkness at all” (1 John 1:5).

JESUS, the name of the only begotten Son of God says: “[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).

“The LORD is my [LIGHT AND MY SALVATION]; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” (Psalm 27:1).

“[THERE IS NO FEAR IN LOVE; BUT PERFECT LOVE CASTETH OUT FEAR]: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love” (1 John 4:18).

“We love him, because he first loved us” (1 John 4:19).

“[HEREIN IS OUR LOVE MADE PERFECT, THAT WE MAY HAVE BOLDNESS IN THE DAY OF JUDGMENT: BECAUSE AS HE IS, SO ARE WE IN THIS WORLD] (1 John 4:17).

JESUS also says: “As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world” (John 9:5).

“[FEAR NOT, LITTLE FLOCK]; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” (Luke 12:32).

“[I AM WITH YOU ALWAY, EVEN UNTO THE END OF THE WORLD]. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).

Holy dawn.

Day after Christmas: Now what? Did you receive the GIFT OF SALVATION?

Now that the gifts have been exchanged and opened; now that the partying has ended; now that the day has passed; now what?

What is next?

Unfortunately, there are still untold numbers of people who have not received the TRUE GIFT worthwhile obtaining in our lifetime which is the FREE GIFT OF LIGHT which is hidden with JESUS CHRIST (Colossians 3:3) (1 Corinthians 15:45–46).

“‘[BELIEVE] on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be [SAVED], and thy house’” (Acts 16:31).

“[FOR YE ARE DEAD, AND YOUR LIFE IS HID WITH CHRIST IN GOD]” (Colossians 3:2–3).

“[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).

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8) is “The Christ of God” (Luke 9:20), the ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD, is the ONLY SAVIOR (Matthew 2:1-2) (John 3:16-18).

“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).

“[HE THAT HATH THE SON HATH LIFE]; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

To OVERCOME this world we must BELIEVE that JESUS is the ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD (John 3:15-18) “The Christ of God” (Luke 9:20).

“[FOR YE ARE DEAD, AND YOUR LIFE IS HID WITH CHRIST IN GOD]” (Colossians 3:2–3).
“[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).

“[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).

“[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).

“He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.

[AND THIS IS THE RECORD, THAT GOD HATH GIVEN TO US ETERNAL LIFE, AND THIS LIFE IS IN HIS SON].

He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
[THESE THINGS HAVE I WRITTEN UNTO YOU THAT BELIEVE ON THE NAME OF THE SON OF GOD; THAT YE MAY KNOW THAT YE HAVE ETERNAL LIFE], and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God” (1 John 5:10-13).

“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that [OVERCOMETH] shall not be hurt of the second death” (Revelation 2:11).

“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that [OVERCOMETH] will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the [PARADISE OF GOD]” (Revelation 2:7).

“I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. [I AM THE ROOT AND THE OFFSPRING OF DAVID], and the bright and morning star” (Revelation 22:16).

“He which testifieth these things saith, [SURELY I COME QUICKLY]. Amen. [EVEN SO, COME], Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (Revelation 22:20-21).

Manger and crosses

Do you BELIEVE in the BIRTH, DEATH AND RESURRECTION of JESUS? (Isaiah 9:6–7) (Luke 2:30-32) (John 19:33–37) (1 John 5:5–6).

Now, anyone celebrating CHRISTMAS and NOT JESUS’ RESURRECTION is celebrating IN VAIN CHRISTMAS! To celebrate CHRISTMAS is celebrate JESUS’ VICOTRY ON THE CROSS OF CALVARY (Luke 23:33)!

When our Lord JESUS was born the Holy Spirit revealed to a just and devout man in Jerusalem name Simeon 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).

Furthermore, Simeon foretold of JESUS’ death and resurrection.

“And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, [BEHOLD, THIS CHILD IS SET FOR THE FALL AND RISING AGAIN OF MANY IN ISRAEL]; and for a sign which shall be spoken against;

(Yea, [A SWORD SHALL PIERCE THROUGH THY OWN SOUL] also,) [THAT THE THOUGHTS OF MANY HEARTS MAY BE REVEALED]” (Luke 2:34-35).

Jesus’ death and resurrection was purposed by God to let the inhabitants of the earth know of the REWARD OF ETERNAL LIFE for humankind, which was hidden since the time of creation (John 6:70–71) Acts 26:18). Jesus said, “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me” (John 12:32).

When Jesus was crucified along with two thieves, the prince of this world, the Devil or Satan thought that he won again, as he did with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. However, little did he know that it was all part of God’s perfect plan to finally destroy death, with the promise of ETERNAL LIFE through HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON (John 3:16-18) (John 6:70–71).. The word of God says:

“[FOR THIS PURPOSE] the Son of God [WAS MANIFESTED], that he might [DESTROY THE WORKS] of the Devil” (1 John 3:8–9).

Jesus expressed this fact to his disciples when he told them saying: “Therefore doth [MY FATHER LOVE ME, BECAUSE I LAY DOWN MY LIFE, THAT I MIGHT TAKE IT AGAIN]. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I [HAVE POWER TO LAY IT DOWN, AND I HAVE POWER TO TAKE IT AGAIN]. [THIS COMMANDMENT HAVE I RECEIVED OF MY FATHER]” (John 10:17–18).

“[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).

“[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).

“To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen” (1 Peter 5:11).

The life of Jesus. Holy three kings, the manger, the cross of Golgotha and the empty tomb in a panorama.

 

JESUS is BORN!

We celebrate of the utmost significance the birth of Christ for he is the salvation of God. 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).

“To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen” (1 Peter 5:11).

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

We celebrate of the utmost significance the birth of JESUS Christ because he is the salvation of God (Luke 2: 25-26).

Believe in JESUS because God sent his Son to this earth for the glory of his people Israel and a light for the Gentiles (Luke 2:32).

“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).

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever” (Isaiah 9:6–7).

JESUS was sent to eath to be the SALVATION OF GOD.

We celebrate of the utmost significance the birth of Christ for he is the SALVATION OF GOD. 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).

“Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people, And hath raised up an horn of [SALVATION] for us in the house of his servant David; As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began” (Luke 1:68-70).

“Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judæa in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.
When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh” (Matthew 2:1-2, 10-11).

“To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen” (1 Peter 5:11).
Christmas Nativity Scene

To BELIEVE in CHRISTMAS is to BELIEVE that the Word of GOD became FLESH is to BELIEVE that JESUS was born on this earth.

“[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).

“[EVERY GOOD GIFT AND EVERY PERFECT GIFT IS FROM ABOVE], and [COMETH DOWN FROM THE FATHER OF LIGHTS], with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning” (James 1:17).

“[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. And she shall bring forth a son, [AND THOU SHALT CALL HIS NAME] JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins” (Matthew 1:23, 21).

“[JESUS CHRIST] the same [YESTERDAY, AND TODAY, AND FOREVER]” (Hebrews 13:8) says: “[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).

“[HE THAT RECEIVETH ME RECEIVETH HIM THAT SENT ME]” (John 13:20).

“[HE THAT REJECTETH ME, AND RECEIVETH NOT MY WORDS], hath one that judgeth him: [THE WORD THAT I HAVE SPOKEN, THE SAME SHALL JUDGE HIM IN THE LAST DAY]” (John 12:48).

“[BUT I SAY UNTO YOU], that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof [IN THE DAY OF JUDGMENT]. For [BY THY WORDS THOU SHALT BE JUSTIFIED], and [BY THY WORDS THOU SHALT BE CONDEMNED]” (Matthew 12:36-37).

“[AS LONG AS I AM IN THE WORLD, I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD]” (John 9:5).

“[I AM WITH YOU ALWAY], even unto the [END OF THE WORLD]. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).
