We wish you all a Blessed Christmass.
First Coming of Christ.
The true meaning of Christ coming into the world
The celebrating at this time the “Birth of Christ” (I’m not discussing the right or wrong time of His birth) is a very popular time of year. A time when shops and Supermarkets would try to entice you to buy from them. And by their advertising appear that they are in great sympathy with Christ’s Coming into this world.
And look at the adverts on TV about loans, lotteries, (all in the guise, that in participating you are helping others) and gambling of all shades, alcohol drink of all sorts, things you must have, even if you can’t afford them, Christmas Cheer etc., etc.
These same shops have recently done the same for Halloween, Pride movement celebration, which completely contradicts the reason for the “Birth of Christ”. I also wonder how the politicians and governments can equate their celebration of the “Birth of Christ” and at the same time be pro-abortionists?
Then there are those in schools and other organisations who wouldn’t remember the “Birth of Christ” because it might be offensive to others who have come here to live.
Their ideas of “Christ Coming” into the world is, to say the least highly twisted and blasphemous!
Why do I say that? Simply because all these ideas, celebrations and must-haves that are tooted as great, are the opposite of what Christ came into this world for!
So I remind all from the “Word of God” (Bible) the reason for His coming!
And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, (this prophecy was made by Isaiah about 800 BC) 23 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 1:21-22
He didn’t remain in a manger, He died on a cruel cross, paid the punishment for our sins! Was buried and rose again the third day. And believe it or not, this same Jesus is coming back to earth again!
He came to save from sin! To be a Saviour of sinners; to bring people out of their darkness into the Light. So as to be renewed in their minds and all actions and speech. And so changing lives as to make them new people. This is the reason why Jesus Christ came into the world!
The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined. Isa 9:2
John 1:11-12 He (Jesus) came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Don’t confuse the silly goings-on of “today's celebrations” with the real reason for the “Birth of Christ”
