Did Jesus gatecrash your last Christmas Party?

Dear Loved Ones,

As you know, may Birthday is Celebrated on Christmas Day. This is the same every year, the Celebration is in my honor.

During the time before the Celebration many people are shopping for gifts, there are radio announcements, TV commercials and in every part of the World everyone is talking about my Birthday as it gets closer and closer.

It is really very nice to know that at least once a year some people think of me.

As you know, the Celebration of my Birthday began many years ago as my Disciples and those who followed me like The Heavenly Host rejoiced in my earthly Birth.

At first people seemed to understand and be Thankful of all that I did for them but in these current times not many seem to know the reason for the Celebration.

Family and friends get together and have a lot of fun but they don’t know the real reason why they are Celebrating. I remember that each year there is a great feast in my honor. The dinner table is full of delicious foods, pastries, fruits, assorted nuts and chocolates. The decorations are exquisite and there are always many beautifully wrapped gifts.

But do you want to know something? I’m not always Invited.

I am the Guest of Honor and many don’t remember to send me an Invitation.

The Party is for me but when that great day comes I’m left outside, they close the door in my face and this saddens me because I want to be with them and share their table.

In Truth this doesn’t surprise me because in the last few years many close their doors to me. Since I’m not Invited, I decided to enter the Party last year without making any noise. I went in and stood in a corner.

They were all drinking; there were some who were drunk and telling off color jokes and laughing at everything. They were having a grand time.

To top it all this big fat man all dressed in red wearing a long white beard entered the room yelling Ho-Ho-Ho! He sat on the sofa and all the Children ran to him, saying: “Santa Claus, Santa Claus” as if the Party were in his honor!

During the Party people began to hug each other; I extended my arms waiting for someone to hug me but do you know… no-one hugged me, they didn’t even notice me, especially in their hearts.

Then they all began to share gifts. They opened them one by one with great expectation. When all had been opened, I looked to see if maybe there was one for me. What would you feel if on your Birthday everybody shared gifts and you did not get one? or they did what they wanted to do instead of considering your wishes.

I then understood that I was unwanted at that Party and quietly left.

Every year it gets worse. Most people only remember the gifts, the Parties, to eat and drink and not many remember me.

I would like for this Christmas that you allow me to enter into your life your heart is a gift that I will Treasure and it will give me great pleasure to be your Friend because I Love you and always have.

I would like you to recognize the fact that over two thousand years ago I came to this World to give my Life for you and on the Cross, I knew your Name and took your shame, I came to save you and to set you free from the control of Sin so you would no longer be in bondage but sadly many still choose to be.

John 8:34-36 Jesus replied, “I tell you the Truth everyone who Sins is a slave to Sin. Now a Slave has no permanent place in the family but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free you will be free indeed.

1 John 3:9 No one who is Born of God will continue to Sin because God’s seed remains in him, he cannot go on Sinning because he has been Born of God.

Today, I want that you believe with all your Heart that you have been set free, repent and come Close to me and I will come Close to you, please don’t keep me at a distance, it hurts to be apart from you.

I want to share something with you. We will have our own Celebration, a Grandiose Party that no one has ever imagined, a Spectacular Spiritual Party. I’ve made all the arrangements for you and we are waiting on your reply so you can join us.

heavenly

Today I am sending out many Invitations and there is an Invitation for you. I want to know if you wish to attend and I have made a reservation for you so you can come and I have written your Name with golden letters in my Great Guest Book but you still need to reply so you can enjoy the Celebration.

Only those on the Guest List are Invited to the Party.

Those who don’t accept my Invitation will be left outside and this will grieve me greatly, so be prepared because I want you to be part of our Wonderful Party.

See you soon… I Love you and always will – Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ God’s Greatest Gift to us on December 25th

S G

69vS GChristmas is a special time of year and many celebrate God’s greatest Gift to Mankind, His beloved Son Jesus Christ.

S GWe have been asked a few times now by different Blogging friends if we would continue confirming Jesus Birth as being on the 25th of December. We felt the best way to do this is to share with you in the sequence of advents that God reveals in the Scriptures that happened before and after His birth.
S GWe will look today at a few of these and at another time we will look at the signs in the Heavens before and at the time of Jesus Birth and also confirmation through other  events and  times of Jesus Life and Death, which also confirm that He was Born on the 25th of December.S GZacharias,  who was John the Baptist’s father  and also a High Priest  appointed by God to make atonement for His people the Israelites. He was allotted His duties as were all the Priests who ministered in the Temple and the regulations  were to be fully observed by all of them according to their position.

S GWe can see that  Zacharias  was a High Priest by the Duties he preformed and also by his age.  A Priest who was doing  his lot of duty only served till the age of 50, but a High Priest served till they died. ( Numbers 4:3 & 8:25 )

S G

ZACHARIAS AND ELIZABETH

S GZechariah  and his wife Elizabeth as told to us in the Scriptures ( Luke1:7 &18 ) were very advanced in years much older then 50years, and they were both past child bearing age.  Luke tells us that they were both righteous before God in keeping all of His Ordinances and Commandments.

S G Zacharias who was  from the line of Abia  was a descendant of Aaron which means he was from the tribe of the Levites, under Nehemiah, he was a leading Priest who signed a covenant to obey the laws of God after the Israelite returned from exile in Babylon, and it is from his house of Priests that Zechariah is a descendant and his wife Elizabeth was of the Daughters of Aaron.S G

( Leviticus 21:14 )
S G
INCENSE
S G
On the Day of Atonement which was only once a year when God gave instructions that  ( Leviticus 23:27 )  only a High Priest from Aaron’s seed could go into the Holy of Holies and burn the incense as  God had asked to be done which meant that ( Exodus 30:10 ) everyone else had to wait patiently outside… ( Leviticus 16:17) & Hebrews 9:7 & Luke1:10 ) and this was done on the 10 day in the Seventh month of the Jewish year which was September -October, as confirmed by the Scriptures ( Leviticus 16:29 ) which means regardless of who King Herod chose to be in this position, God chose and anointed Zacharias to Minister and make sacrifices for His people.  It was at this time that Zacharias was told that Elisabeth his wife was to have a child. ( Luke 1:13 )
S G
The Gospel of Luke states that while Zacharias ministered at the Altar of incense, an Angel of God announced to him that Elizabeth his wife would give birth to a son, whom he was to name John, and that this son would be the forerunner of the long-expected Messiah  and this  was when  Zacharias was  performing the once a year duty in the Holy of Holies of a High Priest assigned specifically to the descendants of Aaron among the sons of Levi. S G
(1 Chronicles 23:13 ) 

S GElisabeth conceived in  September 3BC at the time of the feast of the Tabernacles and gave birth to John The Baptist in June 2B.C  When Elisabeth was 6 mths pregnant which was in March,  Mary was told she was to give birth to Jesus,  when Elisabeth gave birth to John, Mary was 3 mths pregnant,  Jesus was born 6mths later December 25th 1AD,  Mary’s time had come to give birth when God sent forth His Son, made of a woman, made under the law – (Galatians 4:4)

S GSo as we can see clearly that the events in Luke were  not earlier in the year as some claim seeking to establish the error that Jesus was not born in December.

S GWe will continue when needed to give more detail to confirm what we have already shared with more confirmation, below is a link that shows why some of the objections to Celebrating Christmas when we do are invalid.

Objections https://freedomborn.wordpress.com/2012/12/24/jesus-was-born-on-the-25th-of-december/

S GThank you for seeking God’s Truth with us, as He leads us all into greater understanding by confirmation in His inspired written word through the empowering of The Holy Spirit.

S GThe Truth will set us free… Jesus is The Way,  The Truth and The Life and He will Teach us All Things, through the empowering of the Holy Spirit.S GMatthew 10:26-28 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.

Jesus was Born on the 25th of December…..

S G

Jesus in manger Why Jesus Christ’s Birth could have only been in the Month of December.

There are many unproven theories as to why Jesus Christ was not Born in December and why we should not Celebrate Christmas at this time together as Christians, this is the same with Easter but when examined in the light of Scripture by the empowering of The Holy Spirit, they have no substance or Truth and are mostly hearsay and fiction and come from man’s own logic, reasoning and understanding and fear.

During the next few weeks we will spend a few days looking at the Scriptures and Creation that confirm God’s account of the Birth of His Son, we will do this in parts so you will be able to discern for yourself its accuracy in relation to Jesus birth being on the 25th of December but first let’s look at some of the objections.  Christmas Tree 12

One thing those who discredit Christmas claim, is that the Christmas Tree was forbidden by God but as we look at the Scripture in (Jeremiah 10: 2-4 ) that they refer to, we see that the trees mentioned  were used by the Pagans to craft Idols in the images of their gods which they then adorned with their gold and silver and worshiped all year, they were not celebrating Christmas but what is important is how they used these trees not that they used them. Thy are part of God’s creation and all He made was very good and to be enjoyed but anything can be used for evil. 

No where in Scripture does God tell us not to Celebrate Christmas as Christians together,  we are not accountable for what Pagans or Heathens do, God knows our hearts but if you are indeed worshiping your Christmas Tree then you may need to seek help fast! 

God  tells us to give thanks and Praise to Him in all things but yes He also warns us not to worship false gods or to use our children as sacrifices to them, or put anything before Him including money.

God knows that unbelievers  hearts are hard, He sees them from afar, He cannot be in fellowship with them because of their unconfessed sin but He longs to be, He does not want anyone to perish, meaning Spiritually to be seperated eternally from Him. He also knows us,  His Redeemed Children and delights in us. Having accepted His free gift of Salvation by coming to heart Repentance and receiving forgiveness, we show we believe in Jesus His Son who sets us free from the slavery and bondage of sin.

Heartbreakingly many commit Suicide but not just at Christmas, all through the year because they don’t have the Eternal Hope that is found only in Jesus Christ, it is their choice if they reject Him, not His, He died to set them free.

Why should we let Pagans ungodly actions stop us from  Celebrating God’s great Love Gift in Jesus at Christmas or reject the beauty of His Creation and our God-given creativity in using it symbolically just because Pagans used Trees to worship their gods.

Pine cones 61

Some of  the Decorations we enjoy at Christmas time were in the Tabernacle and are mentioned in other Scriptures, their Spiritual Symbolism is very encouraging and uplifting as you can see with our Post “Share with All God’s Children”on this Blog. The Symbolism of most of these treasures  have been known for years and shared, others were given recently by The Spirits empowering.

We are indeed to celebrate Jesus Birth and give thanks that He died for us while we were still sinners and of course we do this all year. If we are not thankful for His Birth we can’t be thankful that He died for us, both go together.

 Cross 765

 Jesus was hung on a Tree which was carved into the form of a Cross, His hands were nailed to it, His feet then tied firmly for weight support, He suffered greatly but He knew each one of us by name even before we were born, that is why He tells us we are carved on the palms of His hands, this is symbolic of the nails that He endured because of our sins and yet He considered Mankind worth it because of His great Love for us. How wonderful that He will not forget His Bride or abandon us, we are part of Him in The Spirit. 

In the Palm of my hand

 The early Church Leaders being called the First-fruits who were part of the Body of Christ, His Church which was called Catholic meaning Universal and not confined to any one Race, Denomination, or Country, or Gender,  God does not have favorites but He knows those who are His even before we are Born. The early Church also called the Way and The Church of God, at that time knew the date of Jesus birth, later this date shown by events and signs in Scripture, was confirmed by those who followed. 

It would also have been very hard if God had not Ordained Jesus’ Birth to be the 25th of December, to find a day to Celebrate Christ’s birth  that was not set apart at that time by the Pagans to worship their sun-god or one of their other gods. 

It is also hard to conceive that these Leaders would just have taken a guess as to the time Jesus was Born or that God did not plan His Son’s birth down to the finest and exact detail… yes the signs that show the exact time of His birth and death are recorded in the Scriptures the same as the signs of His return.(1Thessalonians 5 :2 -6 )

AngelOne of the other things that is claimed shows Jesus was not Born in December is that the sheep would not have been in the hills in winter but the facts show different and they still are today until  the extreme cold temperatures in January and onwards. 

Also Jesus was laid in a manger by Mary, ( Luke 2: 7) this would have been lined with hay as it was being used to feed the Oxen and other animals who were sheltered in ( barns ) stables during the winter which is the rainy season, unlike the sheep who are well padded and who were being watched over by the Shepherds on the hills.

The Oxen were sheltered in the Barn, ( Stable ) of the Inns in winter but they were used to trash out the grain in the harvest season and so were grazed in the pastures. For the manger to be full it would mean that it was winter and December not October or any other month of the year. 

The Scriptures tell us in  ( Proverbs 14: 4  Where no Oxen are, the crib is clean ( or manger ) but much increase is by the strength of the Ox ) we know this is referring to the work the Ox did in the sowing, harvesting and trashing of the Grain in the dry seasons, which means the manger would have been empty during  this time but not so in December and through the colder months.

Some of those who say we are not to Celebrate Jesus’ Birth at Christmas also tell us we are not give The Godhead honour or Trinity as we call Them today, meaning Three in One, because the Pagans  worship  their Trinity consisting  of Satan, the Beast and the false Prophet? The Scriptures tell us if we can’t acknowledge The Living Word, Jesus Christ Divinity as part of the Trinity, then we don’t have The Holy Spirit.

1John 5:7 For there are Three that bear record in Heaven, The Father, The Word, and The Holy Ghost and these Three are One.

Let’s not listen to the collective murmurings of those who want to cast doubt on the recorded words of Scripture or believe those who do and so cause confusion, instead let’s keep our focus on The Lord… who is The Way, The Truth, The Life and as we know, no one comes to the Father but through Him  we become one with Him as He rises in our hearts. ( 2 Peter 1:19-21 )

We will continue over Christmas until the New Year and confirm the signs in which the Scriptures and the Universe reveal the date of Jesus’ Birth as the 25th of December, until then many Blessings for Christmas and the New Year and may God’s Love, Joy, and Hope be in your heart every day of the year.

Christmas Love which is Christian Love, from both of us – Anne
