“I am SAVED in the KINGDOM OF GOD because I have JESUS CHRIST IN ME”!

The Apostle Paul said: “[EXAMINE YOURSELVES, WHETHER YE BE IN THE FAITH]; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you?” (2 Corinthians 13:5).

“[FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS] not meat and drink; but [RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND PEACE, AND JOY IN THE HOLY GHOST]” (Romans 14:17).

“[THE KINGDOM OF GOD] IS not in word, but [IN POWER; THAT YOUR FAITH SHOULD] not [STAND] in the wisdom of men, but [IN THE POWER OF GOD]” (1 Corinthians 4:20, 2:5).

“For ye are all the children of God by [FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS]. [FOR AS MANY OF YOU AS HAVE BEEN BAPTIZED INTO CHRIST HAVE PUT ON CHRIST]. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: [FOR YE ARE ALL ONE IN CHRIST JESUS]. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Galatians 3:24-29).

JESUS says: “[IF A MAN LOVES ME, HE WILL KEEP MY WORDS]: and [MY FATHER WILL LOVE HIM, AND WE WILL COME UNTO HIM], and [MAKE OUR ABODE WITH HIM]” (John 14:23).

“The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand: [REPENT YE, AND BELIEVE THE GOSPEL]” (Mark 1:15). “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).

“[NO MAN CAN COME TO ME], except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and [I WILL RAISE HIM UP AT THE LAST DAY]” (John 6:44).

“[I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE]: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).

“I am with you alway, [EVEN UNTO THE END OF THE WORLD]. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).

GOD has given HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON the POWER to give human beings LIGHT To obtain S A L V A T I O N on the LAST DAY (Matthew 24:36) (John 3:16-18) (Revelation 11:18, 20:11-15).

“Wherefore he saith: ‘[AWAKE THOU THAT SLEEPEST], and arise from the dead, and [CHRIST SHALL GIVE THEE LIGHT]’” (Ephesians 5:14).

“[BEHOLD, I SHEW YOU A MYSTERY; WE SHALL NOT ALL SLEEP, BUT WE SHALL ALL BE CHANGED]. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the [LAST TRUMP]: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?” (1 Corinthians 15:44-55).

“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first, then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord” (1 Thessalonians 4:16–17).

“[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).

“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).

JESUS 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). “As long as I am in the world, I am the [LIGHT] of the world” (John 9:5).

“No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will [RAISE] him up at the [LAST DAY]” (John 6:44).

“[MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE, AND I KNOW THEM, AND THEY FOLLOW ME: AND I GIVE UNTO THEM ETERNAL LIFE]; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. [MY FATHER, WHICH GAVE THEM ME, IS GREATER THAN ALL; AND NO MAN IS ABLE TO PLUCK THEM OUT OF MY FATHER’S HAND. I AND MY FATHER ARE ONE]” (John 10:27-30).

“[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).

Psalm 27

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).

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).

Sign of the BIRTH and RETURN of our Lord JESUS.

Before the birth of Jesus there was a STAR IN THE SKY IN THE EAST WHICH WAS A GUIDE FOR THE WISE MEN to find the place where he was born in Bethlehem(Matthew 2:1-2, 9).

Just as the star in the east was sign of the birth of our King, one day there will be a sign of the coming of Jesus Christ just before he returns to earth on the Last Day.

“[FOR AS THE LIGHTNING COMETH OUT OF THE EAST], and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory” (Matthew 24:27, 39).

“So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors” (Matthew 24:33).

“Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come” (Matthew 24:42).

FREE GIFT OF GOD.

The irony is that this holiday season untold amounts of money will be spent on gifts to be given for CHRISTMAS, and yet, the FREE GIFT which was GIVEN by GOD has not or is not being RECEIVED by untold numbers of people.

The FREE GIFT GIVEN BY GOD is ETERNAL LIFE through JESUS CHRIST (John 3:15-18).

“[FOR HE IS NOT A GOD OF THE DEAD, BUT OF THE LIVING]: for all live unto him” (Luke 20:38).

“[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).

“[FOR WHOSO FINDETH ME FINDETH LIFE, AND] shall obtain favor of the LORD. But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: [ALL THEY THAT HATE ME LOVE DEATH]” (Proverbs 8:35-36).

“[FOR THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH]; but the [GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH JESUS CHRIST] our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

“[LOOK UNTO ME, AND BE YE SAVED, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else” (Isaiah 45:22).

“[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).

“[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). “[AS LONG AS I AM IN THE WORLD, I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD]” (John 9:5). “I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS], even unto the [END OF THE WORLD]. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).
