Merry Christmas to you all!

Merry Christmas to you all!

Today we celebrate the Prince of peace entering this temporal realm in the grandest display of humility ever! The uncreated, eternal Creator enters the stage of this world in the form of His own creation, in a vulnerable body of a little baby boy, passing through the womb of a pure virgin chosen for this task, and He was wrapped in swaddling cloths and placed in a manger, a feeding trough of animals his very first day here! No baby crib for this KING! This little baby boy would grow to be the Man to eventually bring about the redemption of all those who would believe and place their trust in Him. He lived a perfect sinless life, gave all that He was to His and His Father's purpose. He preached the message of His kingdom, the message of His peace, of His grace, a message hidden throughout the ages peering through the words inspired to the prophets who foretold His coming by the unction of the Spirit of God. He healed all who came to Him, He set those who were oppressed free, He raised the dead! He then gave Himself as the purest, most spotless sacrifice, a substitute for you and me. All abandoned Him in His passion, and even in His death on the cross the Father did momentarily as well. He went to the depths of hell for you and me, He proclaimed there His message of victory and dominion, and then rose a new Man, putting on the incorruptible body that He will forever have. In His resurrection He defeated death and the one who had it's power, and gave us the hope of the very same thing, an eternal glorified body for our very own to love and serve Him with for all eternity! For 40 more days He preached and showed Himself before many witnesses chosen before to see Him, even to over 500 at one time. He then ascended in front of His disciples back to heaven to sit at the right hand of the Father, and will soon return, not as the Lamb this time, but as the LION! GLORY TO THE KING OF KINGS, forever and ever! Thank You, Lord Jesus!

"The LORD bless you and keep you; The LORD make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace." Numbers 6:24-26

Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and you perish in the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him. Psalm 2:11-12

Grace, peace and love in Jesus Christ!
