The True Meaning of Christmas
Societies the world over celebrate the holiday of christmas with very little thought as to the true meaning of christmas. Families and friends gather together during this time to celebrate, to eat, to give and to receive gifts and, to party. While being trivial about and even assaulting the only truth that is eternally important.
Lest we forget, it is important that Christians take full advantage of the medias hype and of the focus given to commerce, to remind people that GOD became the man Christ Jesus to become the atonement for men.
“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, Counsellor, 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 for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.” Isaiah 9:6-7
This child is the beginning of creation, the end of creation, the upholder of creation and, the goal of creation. To redeem the elect of GOD!
To slight the Child of Christmas is to blaspheme the GOD of Heaven
God is separate. God is holy. God is right. God is love. God is forgiving. God is just.
God is everything we are not for we are evil, wicked, vile creatures who hate the idea that God has given the law that we are to abide by. The love of God that all people refer to, and is grossly misunderstood, is displayed in the atonement that God made for humanity by killing Himself in the person of Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary who willingly took upon Himself the furry of God’s holy anger against the fallen creation God loves. Only Christ could be this substitute!
The anger at those who tell people that they will be judged by God for rejecting Christ’s offer of salvation is too rejecting God. No one can know God apart from Christ. No one can come to believe in Christ apart from God drawing this person and revealing this precious gift. And the only possible way that a person can know about God is by the preaching of God’s Gospel.
We are GOD’s creation and we will all stand before God one day to answer for the life we have lived. Noted author and debater Christopher Hitchens died yesterday. He lived apart from God and only God knows his end. But Scripture is clear that if a person dies without having accepted Jesus Christ as Savior and as LORD, they are then of themselves subject to the wrath of God’s holy anger in the depths of an eternal HELL. Don’t be the fool who lives as if there is no God. Your world-view is grossly wrong.
Amidst the many differing ideals regarding the existence of God and the influence this has had upon world societies, there is great need for dialogue to confront and to challenge world-views with evidence that cannot be denied.
A witness is someone who can give testimony to an event/s that occurred with conviction to persuade. William Simpson has written a thought-provoking commentary that proves the reality of creations God, and, what one must act upon to be known by and to be accepted by God.
Of all the writings throughout world history, there is only one book which presents God as only God could truly be. LIVING IN THE HOPE OF MY IMAGINATION is the written testimony of a man who unapologetically challenges anyone to read and still deny the reality of the GOD of the Bible. The evidence has been given.
Book is available in stores and Amazon.
“Jesus, lover of my soul; you give me strength to overcome where
you lead for the experience of knowing it’s in you I depend. The
foundation upon which I have established my faith is in the acceptance
of your sacrifice; I am a man now redeemed. You became salvation and
took upon you my sin to suffer and die that I might live again. In you
do I trust; your Words have I hid in my heart. Oh, the joy of knowing I
am your friend. Washed and made clean by the blood of the Lamb, you
are my hope everlasting in this peace I have found. Shame cast away in
a river of grace; confident, I stand upright in your presence, my King.
Free from the bondage and slavery to sin, being healed in my body,
mind renewed and made whole. Innocence once lost has now been
restored; you are my God, my Savior, my Lord.”
President Barack Obama is a domestic terrorist! His world-view is destructive to the ideals that make America the greatest free nation in world history. Every single day there is news coverage that clearly shows that he and his administration are intellectually incapable of, and morally unable to lead the legislative and judicial branches of government in making the right decisions for the betterment of our nation. His will undoubtedly be the greatest presidential failure in America’s history.
The 2012 presidential election will determine whether a free American people become unwilling subjects to the world-governments liberal socialist agenda, or, we elect a man who will uphold his oath to defend the U.S. Constitution and therefore, the good-moraled American majority. There has never been a time since America’s beginning that our freedoms have been at such risk of being abrogated. Just saying…
