Bethlehem

Jesus is of the house and lineage of David, a Beth-lehemite; hence the city of David is called Bethlehem (Luke 2:1-4) (1 Samuel 16:1).

“And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel” (Matthew 2:6). “Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?” (John 7:42).

His name is Jesus: The only Savior

Whether we celebrate or not Christmas is our decision. However, this decision does not change the miraculous fact that the Virgin Mary give birth to the only begotten son of the most Highest: JESUS (Luke 1:27-31).

“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. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins” (Matthew 1:18-21).

Christmas?

No human being on this earth is in any position to judge another. Whether we celebrate or not Christmas is our decision. However, this decision does not change the miraculous fact that the Virgin Mary give birth to the only begotten son of the most Highest: JESUS (Luke 1:27-31).

Let us all be reminded that Jesus Christ says: “Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again” (Matthew 7:1-2).

Why was Jesus sent to this earth?

The birth of Jesus Christ was as foretold by the holy prophets for God to show the power of salvation for his people in the house of his servant David and to the Gentiles (Isaiah 9:6-7).

“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).

A time of giving

This Christmas let us 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).

“Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble” (Psalm 41:1).

Bible Christmas Arrangement

Give a lasting gift

This holiday season give the gift of the word of God: the truth because Jesus said: “It is written, that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God” (Luke 4:4).

Especially in this present time, we are to be watchful in all things to keep at the forefront of our daily lives the love of the word of God (Luke 4:4) and not the love of this world.

Bible Gift

Good gift

“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” (Matthew 1:23).
