My Christ-mas Message

by C. Read

25 December 2005 / 25 Kislev 5766

Adapted from "...Name Inscribed in the the Book of Life"

 Originally Posted: 12 October 2005/ 10 Tishrei 5766

 

As I've grown closer to my Heavenly Father in my walk with the LORD, He has changed My Views on many different issues over the years. My beliefs about the celebration of the birth of Christ is one such issue.

I have wonderful memories of past celebrations, but I have come to realize that many of the holiday traditions that I learned as a child, along with many of the customs that we were establishing in our family, just were not in accordance with Almighty God and His Holy Word.

And after I read and understood the following passage from Jeremiah, the Christ-mas tree just did not have the same appeal it used to have.

"Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of Heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not." Jeremiah 10:2-4

I realize these verses may be referring to an actual idol statue that was worshipped in Jeremiah's day, but the Christ-mas tree, and all that is involved with it, has surely become an idol for many people of the world.

I know how hard it can be to let go of traditions of the past, but what Almighty God thinks is truly all that matters; and obeying the LORD and keeping His word is paramount in My View.

And by virtue of the fact that many of the activities associated with the "Christ-mas" Season are based on lies (i.e. Santa as gift bearer); should be a major indicator that the Evil One is involved in this holiday. After all, Satan is the father and benefactor of all lies.

It is no wonder that many times strife, hatred, envy, disappointment, and in some worst case scenarios, even death and destruction also accompanies the celebration of Christ-mas and other "holy-days."

"Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? Let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace." James 3:13-18

The meaning of words are extremely important to keep in mind, and it is our responsibility to understand what we believe, and to know what we have been taught by others, especially in regard to the things of God.

I have recently made some startling discoveries in my private studies, that I would like to share concerning the origins of Christ-mas in relation to the official "Catechism of the (Roman) Catholic Church."

Christ-mas literally means "Christ's Mass." (I never thought about the meaning behind this word, but it is obvious when you examine it.)

Jesus Christ, is the "Anointed One," as foretold by the Holy prophets, but not all people realize this very important Truth. And many who claim to know Him really do not--they have actually met "another Jesus."

"But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him." 2 Corinthians 11:3-4

The Mass is the ceremony whereby a Roman Catholic priest offers up an "un-bloody sacrifice of Christ" in the celebration of the Eucharist. (Please note that "mass" also comes from the Latin, feminine past participle of mittere, which means to "send away, dismiss."

The Eucharist is one of the seven sacraments, of the Catholic Church. (According to the Roman Catholic Church, when the priest consecrates the bread and wine in the Eucharist, they cease to be bread and wine, and they believe that it actually becomes the body and blood of Christ.)

This "mysterious change" is also known as "transubstantiation;" and only "a validly ordained priest (either bishop or presbyter), acting as a representative of Christ," approved of by "The Roman Catholic Church," is authorized to "celebrate the rite and consecrate the Eucharist."

It is also very important to note that the Roman Catholic Church does not consider the "Eucharist" of the Protestant churches to be valid, since they consider them rebellious children that must fall back under the "Roman Catholic Church" and fully submit to the authority of the Supreme leadership of the "infallible" Roman Pontiff--the Pope, who claims to be the Vicar/substitute for Christ, a.k.a. "The Holy Father."

"I marvel that ye are so soon removed from Him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed." Galatians 1:6-9

The evidence that I Am presenting here is based on the Holy Scriptures, the "Catechism of the Catholic Church" and "Code of Canon Law."  Please consider the following from the Vatican's official documents:

"1128 This is the meaning of the Church's affirmation49 that the sacraments act ex opere operato (literally: 'by the very fact of the action's being performed'), i.e., by virtue of the saving work of Christ, accomplished once for all. It follows that 'the sacrament is not wrought by the righteousness of either the celebrant or the recipient, but by the power of God'50 From the moment that a sacrament is celebrated in accordance with the intention of the Church, the power of Christ and his Spirit acts in and through it, independently of the personal holiness of the minister. Nevertheless, the fruits of the sacraments also depend on the disposition of the one who receives them.

1129 The Church affirms that for believers the sacraments of the New Covenant are necessary for salvation.51" (Emphasis Mine)

In other words, according to the Roman Catholic Church their Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Confession, etc. are "necessary for salvation." And regardless of the "personal holiness of the minister," under the rules of Canon Law, "Can.  900 §1. The minister who is able to confect the sacrament of the Eucharist (consecrate the bread and the wine so that they become the Body and Blood of the Lord) in the person of Christ is a validly ordained priest alone." Additionally, they believe that "the fruits of the sacraments" are dependant on the character of the recipients.

I guess this explains why the Roman Catholic hierarchy chose to shelter abusive priests and move them to other parishes so as to cover their sin rather than exposing and excommunicating them, since "the minister's personal holiness" is not a factor when administering the "sacraments."

However, consider what God thinks about the innocent little ones that have been abused and misled by those wolves in sheep's clothing! 

"For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in My name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward. And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in Me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea." Mark 9:41-42

Not until recently have I begun to understand the anti-Christian nature of the Roman Catholic Church, but I Am sure that my Real Father had a hand in me leaving "The Church" years ago when my Mary was a baby. (Just a note: she was named after my Husbands' grandmother.)

The one thing that bothered me the most while growing up as a Catholic was being accused of worshipping Mary. I would tell my accusers that I did not worship Mary, but I did respect her as Jesus' mother.

However, as I now see it, the Catholic Church certainly does advocate the worship of Mary, and I hope you will agree after you examine the official documents as noted below from the "Code of Canon Law" and the "Catechism of the Catholic Church."

 

"III MARY - ESCHATOLOGICAL ICON OF THE CHURCH"

"2682...May our most gracious God grant this through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of the Church, her spouse St. Joseph, Patron of the Church, and Saints Peter and Paul."

"966 Finally the Immaculate Virgin, preserved free from all stain of original sin, when the course of her earthly life was finished, was taken up body and soul into heavenly glory, and exalted by the Lord as Queen over all things,"

"721...Mary, the all-holy ever-virgin Mother of God, is the masterwork of the mission of the Son and the Spirit in the fullness of time...

"722...She was, by sheer grace, conceived without sin as the most humble of creatures, the most capable of welcoming the inexpressible gift of the Almighty."

"773...Mary goes before us all in the holiness that is the Church's mystery as 'the bride without spot or wrinkle.'194 This is why the 'Marian' dimension of the Church precedes the 'Petrine.'195"

"2146 The second commandment forbids the abuse of God's name, i.e., every improper use of the names of God, Jesus Christ, but also of the Virgin Mary and all the saints.

2679 Mary is the perfect Orans (pray-er), a figure of the Church. When we pray to her, we are adhering with her to the plan of the Father, who sends his Son to save all men. Like the beloved disciple we welcome Jesus' mother into our homes,39 for she has become the mother of all the living. We can pray with and to her. The prayer of the Church is sustained by the prayer of Mary and united with it in hope."

"2677...By asking Mary to pray for us, we acknowledge ourselves to be poor sinners and we address ourselves to the 'Mother of Mercy,' the All-Holy One. We give ourselves over to her now, in the Today of our lives. And our trust broadens further, already at the present moment, to surrender 'the hour of our death' wholly to her care."

"966 Finally the Immaculate Virgin, preserved free from all stain of original sin, when the course of her earthly life was finished, was taken up body and soul into heavenly glory, and exalted by the Lord as Queen over all things,"

"969...Taken up to heaven she did not lay aside this saving office but by her manifold intercession continues to bring us the gifts of eternal salvation....Therefore the Blessed Virgin is invoked in the Church under the titles of 'Advocate, Helper, Benefactress, and Mediatrix.'510

144 To obey (from the Latin ob-audire, to 'hear or listen to') in faith is to submit freely to the word that has been heard, because its truth is guaranteed by God, who is Truth itself. Abraham is the model of such obedience offered us by Sacred Scripture. The Virgin Mary is its most perfect embodiment."

End of quotes form Vatican Documents.

So, according to the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church:

The Catholic Mary is the Icon/Idol of "the Church" in these Final Days.

The Catholic Mary the "all-holy ever-virgin Mother of God."

The Catholic Mary was "pure from all personal sin throughout her life."

The Catholic Mary is exalted above the Apostles of Christ.

The Catholic Mary "goes before" the Church.

The Catholic Mary was conceived without sin.

The Catholic Mary is one they pray to.

The Catholic Mary is who they surrender their lives to.

The Catholic Mary brings the "gifts of eternal salvation."

The Catholic Mary is put on the same level as God.

The Catholic Mary is perfect and her name is to be honored.

The Catholic Mary is the Queen of Heaven.

The Catholic Mary is a "god" of the "Church" and is to be worshipped!

The Catholic Mary is the "bride without spot or wrinkle."

The Catholic Mary has taken the place of Christ!

The Catholic Mary is worshipped by the "Vicar of Christ."

 

Consider the official doctrine regarding the Roman Pontiff and hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church from the "Code of Canon Law" and from the "Catechism of the Catholic Church."

"882 ...'For the Roman Pontiff, by reason of his office as Vicar of Christ, and as pastor of the entire Church has full, supreme, and universal power over the whole Church, a power which he can always exercise unhindered.'403

883 'The college or body of bishops has no authority unless united with the Roman Pontiff, Peter's successor, as its head.' As such, this college has 'supreme and full authority over the universal Church; but this power cannot be exercised without the agreement of the Roman Pontiff.'404

884 'The college of bishops exercises power over the universal Church in a solemn manner in an ecumenical council.'405 But 'there never is an ecumenical council which is not confirmed or at least recognized as such by Peter's successor.'406

891 'The Roman Pontiff, head of the college of bishops, enjoys this infallibility in virtue of his office...The infallibility promised to the Church is also present in the body of bishops when, together with Peter's successor, they exercise the supreme Magisterium,' above all in an Ecumenical Council.418 ...This infallibility extends as far as the deposit of divine Revelation itself.421

THE SUPREME AUTHORITY OF THE CHURCH (Cann. 330 - 367)

 

Can. 330 ...the Roman Pontiff, the successor of Peter, and the bishops, the successors of the Apostles, are united among themselves.

Art. 1. THE ROMAN PONTIFF

Can. 331 The bishop of the Roman Church...is the head of the college of bishops, the Vicar of Christ, and the pastor of the universal Church on earth. By virtue of his office he possesses supreme, full, immediate, and universal ordinary power in the Church, which he is always able to exercise freely.

Can. 333 §1. By virtue of his office, the Roman Pontiff not only possesses power offer (over) the universal Church but also obtains the primacy of ordinary power offer all particular churches and groups of them...

§3. No appeal or recourse is permitted against a sentence or decree of the Roman Pontiff.

Can. 334 Bishops assist the Roman Pontiff in exercising his office... The cardinals also assist him, as do other persons and various institutes according to the needs of the times. In his name and by his authority, all these persons and institutes fulfill the function entrusted to them for the good of all the churches, according to the norms defined by law.

Can. 335 When the Roman See is vacant or entirely impeded, nothing is to be altered in the governance of the universal Church...

 Art. 2. THE COLLEGE OF BISHOPS

Can. 336 The college of bishops, whose head is the Supreme Pontiff and whose members are bishops by virtue of sacramental consecration and hierarchical communion with the head and members of the college and in which the apostolic body continues, together with its head and never without this head, is also the subject of supreme and full power offer (over) the universal Church.

Can. 337 §1. The college of bishops exercises power offer (over) the universal Church in a solemn manner in an ecumenical council...

§3. It is for the Roman Pontiff, according to the needs of the Church, to select and promote the ways by which the college of bishops is to exercise its function collegially regarding the universal Church.

Can. 338 §1. It is for the Roman Pontiff alone to convoke an ecumenical council, preside offer it personally or through others, transfer, suspend, or dissolve a council, and to approve its decrees.

§2. It is for the Roman Pontiff to determine the matters to be treated in a council and establish the order to be observed in a council. To the questions proposed by the Roman Pontiff, the council fathers can add others which are to be approved by the Roman Pontiff.

Can. 339 §1. All the bishops and only the bishops who are members of the college of bishops have the right and duty to take part in an ecumenical council with a deliberative vote.

§2. Moreover, some others who are not bishops can be called to an ecumenical council by the supreme authority of the Church, to whom it belongs to determine their roles in the council.

Can. 340 If the Apostolic See becomes vacant during the celebration of a council, the council is interrupted by the law itself until the new Supreme Pontiff orders it to be continued or dissolves it.

Can. 341 §1. The decrees of an ecumenical council do not have obligatory force unless they have been approved by the Roman Pontiff together with the council fathers, confirmed by him, and promulgated at his order." (Emphasis mine.)

So, according to the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church:

The Pope is Peter's successor.

The Pope is infallible by virtue of his office.

The Pope is the Vicar or substitute for Christ on this earth.

The Pope has full, supreme, and universal power over the whole Church.

The Pope has full power and authority over all ecumenical councils.

The Pope must approve all decrees of the ecumenical council.

The Pope has full authority over the college of bishops.

The Pope has the final word with no appeal process whatsoever.

The Pope seeks to have power over all men everywhere.

The Roman Catholic Church, under the supreme authority of the Pope, are guilty of usurping the power and authority that belongs to Christ, and they have misused God's Holy name in order to deceive the masses.

The leadership of this "Church" has rejected God, His Word, and His Son. And all who are a part of this Apostate Church or have willingly joined with this corrupt entity have become a partaker of their evil deeds.

"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God." 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4

In essence, Christ-mas is the dismissal of Christ! That, is exactly what the Roman Catholic Church has done! And under false pretenses they have led the world into an all-out celebration of the anti-Christ!

Of course, many people who celebrate Christ-mas genuinely love God, and they are just commemorating the birth of Jesus, just as my family did for years, but after I found out that the Devil is behind Christ-mas (Christ's Mass), I can't even put the two words together.

I know it can be very disheartening if you are seeing the Truth about all of this for the first time, and I just hope you will not dismiss this. While I was Walking With The Enemy I believed some pretty outrageous things, so I fully understand how easy it is to be deceived. Which is why it is so important to take heed as to who and what you believe.

"Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end; While it is said, Today if ye will hear His voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation." Hebrews 3:12-15

Many people who claim to be followers of Jesus Christ are provoking God to anger with their blasphemy, including the "Promise Keepers" of the "Purpose Driven Church," who have fallen for "The Message" of the Charismatic and Ecumenical movements, along with the smooth talking preachers and movie makers who claim to have a Passion for "Christ."

If you are involved with an apostate church or a ministry that teaches the lies and deceptions of the Devil, please come out from among them. It is an extremely dangerous place to be in these Final Days!

"And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.

Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.

Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the LORD God who judgeth her." Revelations 18:2-8

Almighty God has been warning His people to come out of the Darkness for a while, and if the Holy Spirit has convicted you of sin in your heart, please do not dismiss His Voice. You never know if it may be your last chance to hear the Truth before the Final Judgment Day.

Please prayerfully consider what the LORD said on 28 February 1993 when the True Light gave me "eyes to see and ears to hear" the Truth.

"Many things you have been taught here has been done in secrecy and in Darkness. You have been taught truth mixed with lies, and the LORD says it will go on no longer!

...Everything you have learned here has been tainted with evil, and you cannot hold on to any of it. The only thing that you can hold on to is the fact that Jesus Christ died for you, and by His mighty power, God raised Him from the dead.

If you believe that in your heart, and claim Him as LORD, He will put the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead inside of you, to lead you and guide you into the Truth.

Light will overshadow Darkness, and Darkness will not be able to stand in the presence of God!"

There are varying opinions as to when Jesus' birth actually took place, and I would like to present another possibility of what could have happened when the True Light of Christ entered into this very dark and dying world as Jesus--the only begotten Son of the Most High God.

"And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, to a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.

And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the LORD is with thee: blessed art thou among women.

And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.

And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call His name JESUS.

He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the LORD God shall give unto Him the throne of His father David: And He shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of His kingdom there shall be no end.

Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the Power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that Holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God." Luke 1:26-35

I realize this may be referring to the 6th month of Elizabeth's pregnancy with John, as most people presume; but if this "announcement" took place during the 6th Jewish month of Elul, the following is very possible.

On 1 Tishrei, (7th Jewish month--late September/early October) during Rosh Hashana, the Blowing of the Trumpets took place to signify that an extremely momentous event was about to take place.

On 10 Tishrei, Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit on this most Holy Day of Atonement, (Leviticus 23:23-32), also known as Yom Kippur, whereby the High Priest made atonement for the sins of the people.

On 15-21 Tishrei is the Feast of Tabernacles, also known as Sukkot, which is a joyous holiday for God's people. Likewise, it would have been a special celebration in Heaven since the Messiah was now in the world.

So, if these dates are correct, the birth of the Holy One of Israel could have taken place during the Feast of Pentecost, a.k.a. Shavuot, during the 3rd Jewish month of Sivan/June; but only if His birth was to have occurred in the year when the additional month of II Adar was added.

I realize all of this is conjecture, but it would really be amazing if it took place just as I have described. The birth of the LORD Jesus Christ, is an extremely important event, because if He had never been born all of mankind would be without Hope in this very hopeless world.

It is interesting to note that according to the Holy Scriptures, 6 Sivan is when the Holy Spirit was given at Pentecost, (Acts 2:1) and also when God gave the Ten Commandments at Mount Sinai. (See Exodus 19-20)

Admittedly, the exact date of Jesus' birth is not as explicitly revealed in the Holy Scriptures as the very day in which He was crucified. In fact, right before He was brutally murdered by the Romans at the insistence of the Jewish leaders, Jesus told His disciples to celebrate the Passover in remembrance of Him and His death, until He comes again.

"For I have received of the LORD that which also I delivered unto you, That the LORD Jesus the same night in which He was betrayed took bread: and when He had given thanks, He brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is My body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of Me.

After the same manner also He took the cup, when He had supped, saying, This cup is the New Testament in My blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of Me.

For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the LORD'S death till He come. Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the LORD unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the LORD." I Corinthians 11:23-27

There will be a Day of Reckoning for all those who have willfully rejected Almighty God and the True Messiah of Israel, especially those who claim to represent the LORD Jesus Christ and His Holy Church!

"Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture! saith the LORD.

Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel against the pastors that feed My people; Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith the LORD.

And I will gather the remnant of My flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase. And I will set up shepherds over them which shall feed them: and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking, saith the LORD.

Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. In His days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is His name whereby He shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that they shall no more say, The LORD liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; but, The LORD liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land.

Mine heart within me is broken because of the prophets; all my bones shake; I am like a drunken man, and like a man whom wine hath overcome, because of the LORD, and because of the words of His holiness. For the land is full of adulterers; for because of swearing the land mourneth; the pleasant places of the wilderness are dried up, and their course is evil, and their force is not right.

For both prophet and priest are profane; yea, in My house have I found their wickedness, saith the LORD. Wherefore their way shall be unto them as slippery ways in the Darkness: they shall be driven on, and fall therein: for I will bring evil upon them, even the year of their visitation, saith the LORD." Jeremiah 23:1-12

The Roman Catholic Church may have dismissed Jesus Christ for a Time, but one great and dreadful Day the Judgment will come, and all who worship the Wicked One will pay for all the evil deeds they have done.

"For true and righteous are His judgments: for He hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of His servants at her hand." Revelations 19:2

John willingly gave his life in service to the LORD, and God gave him the boldness to proclaim the message that he was given. And that message is the same for Today, when "He said, I Am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, make straight the way of the LORD, as said the prophet Esaias (Isaiah 40:3-5)." John 1:23

John prepared the way for the "True Light" to come into this Dark world, and if my scenario is correct, he would have been the one who was born in the winter during the Festival of Lights/Feast of Dedication, a.k.a. Hanukah, during the 9th Jewish month of Kislev (December).

I realize that what I Am saying in this article is extremely controversial, but so are the rest of my writings. I just ask you to prayerfully consider what I have written, and judge what I say by the word of God, and not the words of men. And may God give you the understanding.

"There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings. And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye Him? Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind? And it was at Jerusalem the Feast of the Dedication, and it was winter. And Jesus walked in the Temple in Solomon's porch." John 10:19-23

We may never know some of the specific details pertaining to this life, but regardless of what Day the LORD Jesus Christ actually came into this world to save mankind from sin, Satan, and the power of Darkness, all of us who are true Christians, should proclaim from our hearts every day of the year how thankful and blessed we are that the true Christ has come indeed, and that He has given us everything we need.

"And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book: But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through His name." John 20:30-31

"And this is Life Eternal, that they might know Thee the only True God, and Jesus Christ, whom Thou hast sent." John 17:3

May the true Prince of Peace, who is Emmanuel, the Holy One of Israel, be with all who are seeking to worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. And may all of God’s people, from the least to the greatest, be ready for that Final Trumpet sound when the King of kings and the LORD of lords calls His people home to live forever with Him in that wonderful place that He has prepared for those who truly love and adore Him!

"Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea 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." Matthew 2:1-2

 

Wise Men Still Seek Him

 

 "That was the True Light, which lighteth every man that

cometh into the world." John 1:9

There are many lights in this world, but just one “True Light.” The LORD aptly warned His disciples that in the Final Days, “many shall come in My name, saying I Am Christ; and shall deceive many;” and if possible, even the very elect.

Only by walking in the True Light can we know who is true and who is false; who is of God and who is not; who is in the Light and who is in the Darkness. And only through Almighty God can we genuinely have “eyes to see” the Truth.

If you see that you are “Walking With The Enemy,” you need to call upon the name of the LORD from a sincere and repentant heart. Only He can save your soul from eternal death. After all, what is your Life? And what are you truly living for? This world, or the world that is to come wherein dwelleth Righteousness and true Peace?

In conclusion, I hope you will prayerfully consider these words of Wisdom. They were written over 2000 years ago, in a different Day and Age, but they still have great eternal significance. “The number of a man’s days at the most are an hundred years. As a drop of water unto the sea, and a gravel stone in comparison of the sand; so are a thousand years to the Days of Eternity.”

"Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep His commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into Judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil." Ecclesiastes 12:13-14

Amen!
