Did Jesus gatecrash your last Christmas Party?

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

When is it ok to believe in Santa…

Santa
So when is it OK to believe in Santa , who is Santa ? he is just a man dressed up to play a role that Children love, a fairy story they can and want to relate to. Do their parents believe in Santa, No, they know who buys the presents and it’s not Santa who gets the bill.

Some Parents worry their Children will think they were lied to but like they accept that their other fairytales are not True as they mature, they also accept Santa is not too, without feeling this.

So when is it wrong to promote Santa… it’s wrong when Children are not taught what the real meaning of Christmas is too, which is Jesus God’s greatest gift to us, so Santa than becomes a substituent for Jesus instead of a helper for Dad and Mum who show kindness to them like the first Santa did to those who were in need (see link below)

Santahttps://christmasblessings.wordpress.com/2013/12/09/where-did-santa-come-from/

This means when they find out that Santa is not a real person today, they are left with no real example of unconditional Love and kindness by someone who is a reality and Loves then greatly, Jesus Christ, their Lord and Saviour.

It is also wrong when Santa is used by Churches to get numbers because as the Body of Christ we are to promote Jesus always, not Santa to attract the lost.

Most know there was a real Santa, but today I want to share about another Santa, this Story amazed me but also encouraged me greatly and is proven to be True and what is also very much Truth is regardless of what we do in life, what our job is or our Pastimes and even in regards to our families, God must always come first, even if your Santa. We give Thanks for those who are faithful in all their walks of Life.

An amazing True Story…….

Three years ago, a little boy and his Grandmother came to see Santa At the Mayfair Mall in Wisconsin . The Child climbed up on his lap, holding a picture of a little girl. ‘Who is this?’ asked Santa, smiling. ‘Your friend? Your Sister?”

‘Yes, Santa,’ he replied. ‘My Sister, Sarah, who is very sick,’ he said sadly. Santa glanced over at the Grandmother who was waiting nearby, and saw her dabbing her eyes with a tissue. ‘She wanted to come with me to see you, oh, so very much , Santa!’ the Child exclaimed. ‘She misses you,’ he added softly.
Santa tried to be cheerful and encouraged a smile to the boy’s face, asking him what he wanted Santa to bring him for Christmas.

When they finished their visit, the Grandmother came over to help the child off his lap, and started to say something to Santa, but halted. ‘What is it?’ Santa asked warmly.

Well, I know it’s really to much to ask you Santa, but the old woman began, shooing her Grandson over to one of Santa’s elves to collect the little gift which Santa gave to all his young visitors.

‘The girl in the photograph… my Granddaughter well, you see …she has Leukemia and isn’t expected to make it even through the Christmas holidays,’ she said through tear-filled eyes. ‘Is there any way, Santa any possible way that you could come see Sarah? All she’s asked for Christmas, was to see Santa.’
Santa blinked and swallowed hard and told the woman to leave information with his elves as to where Sarah was, and he would see what he could do.

Santa thought of little else the rest of that afternoon. He knew what he had to do. ‘What if it were MY Child lying in that hospital bed, dying,’ he thought with a sinking heart, ‘This is the least I can do.’

When Santa finished visiting with all the boys and girls that evening, he retrieved from his helper the name of the Hospital where Sarah was staying. He asked the assistant location Manager how to get to Children’s Hospital.

‘Why?’ Rick asked, wit a puzzled look on his face. Santa relayed to him the conversation with Sarah’s Grandmother earlier that day. ‘C’mon…I’ll take you there.’ Rick said softly Rick drove them to the Hospital and came inside with Santa.

They found out which room Sarah was in. A pale Rick said he would wait out in the hall. Santa quietly peeked into the room through the half-closed door and saw little Sarah on the bed.

The room was full of what appeared to be her family; there was the Grandmother and the girl’s brother he had met earlier that day. A woman whom he guessed was Sarah’s Mother stood by the bed, gently pushing Sarah’s thin hair off her forehead.

And another woman who he discovered later was Sarah’s Aunt, sat in a chair near the bed with a weary, sad look on her face. They were talking quietly, and Santa could sense the warmth and closeness of the family, and their Love and concern for Sarah.

Taking a deep breath, and forcing a smile on his face, Santa entered the room, bellowing a hearty, ‘Ho, ho, ho!’

‘Santa!’ shrieked little Sarah weakly, as she tried to escape her bed to run to him, IV tubes intact. Santa rushed to her side and gave her a warm hug. A Child the tender age of his own son — 9 years old — gazed up at him with wonder and excitement.

Her skin was pale and her short tresses bore telltale bald patches from the effects of chemotherapy. But all he saw when he looked at her was a pair of huge, blue eyes. His heart melted, and he had to force himself to choke back tears.

Though his eyes were riveted upon Sarah’s face, he could hear the gasps and quiet sobbing of the women in the room.

As he and Sarah began talking, the family crept quietly to the bedside one by one, squeezing Santa’s shoulder or his hand gratefully, whispering ‘Thank you’ as they gazed sincerely at him with shining eyes.

Santa and Sarah talked and talked, and she told him excitedly all the toys she wanted for Christmas, assuring him she’d been a very good girl that year.

As their time together dwindled, Santa felt led in his spirit to pray for Sarah, and asked for permission from the girl’s mother. She nodded in agreement and the entire family circled around Sarah’s bed, holding hands. Santa looked intensely at Sarah and asked her if she believed in Angels, ‘Oh, yes, Santa… I do!’ she exclaimed.

‘Well, I’m going to ask that Angels watch over you.’ he said. Laying one hand on the Child’s head, Santa closed his eyes and prayed. He asked that God touch little Sarah, and heal her body from this disease.

He asked Him that His Angels minister to her, watch and keep her. And when he finished praying, still with eyes closed, he started singing, softly, ‘Silent Night, Holy Night…. all is calm, all is bright…’The family joined in, still holding hands, smiling at Sarah, and crying tears of hope, tears of joy for this moment, as Sarah beamed at them all.

When the song ended, Santa sat on the side of the bed again and held Sarah’s frail, small hands in his own. ‘Now, Sarah,’ he said authoritatively, ‘you have a job to do, and that is to concentrate on getting well. I want you to have fun playing with your friends this summer, and I expect to see you at my house at Mayfair Mall this time next year!’

He knew it was risky proclaiming that to this little girl who had Terminal Cancer, but he ‘had’ to. He had to give her the greatest gift he could — not dolls or games or toys — but the gift of HOPE.

‘Yes, Santa!’ Sarah exclaimed, her eyes bright. He leaned down and kissed her on the forehead and left the room.

Out in the hall, the minute Santa’s eyes met Rick’s, a look passed between them and they wept unashamed.

Sarah’s Mother and Grandmother slipped out of the room quickly and rushed to Santa’s side to thank him.

‘My only Child is the same age as Sarah,’ he explained quietly. ‘This is the least I could do.’ They nodded with understanding and hugged him.

One year later, Santa Mark was again back on the set in Milwaukee for his six-week, seasonal job which he so loves to do. Several weeks went by and then one day a Child came up to sit on his lap.

‘Hi, Santa! Remember me?!’ ‘Of course, I do,’ Santa proclaimed (as he always does), smiling down at her. After all, the secret to being a ‘good’ Santa is to always make each Child feel as if they are the ‘only’ Child in the world at that moment.

‘You came to see me in the Hospital last year!’ Santa’s jaw dropped. Tears immediately sprang in his eyes, and he grabbed this little miracle and held her to his chest. ‘Sarah!’ he exclaimed.

He scarcely recognized her, for her hair was long and silky and her cheeks were rosy — much different from the little girl he had visited just a year before.
He looked over and saw Sarah’s Mother and Grandmother in the sidelines smiling and waving and wiping their eyes.

That was the best Christmas ever for Santa Claus. He had witnessed –and been blessed to be instrumental in bringing about — this miracle of Hope.

This precious little Child was healed. Cancer-free. Alive and well. He silently looked up to Heaven and humbly whispered, ‘Thank you, Father. ‘Tis a very, Merry Christmas!’

What Paganism is doing to Christmas….

S G
Christmas Nativity DELETED
S GmhsantaS G
Paganism is very much becoming what interests most People and it was prophesied that it would be this way in the end times. Most of our Christmas Symbols (see link below ) some of which are mentioned in Scripture and others when viewed with faith in our hearts as they are meant to be, bring to our mind the real meaning of Jesus’ birth, but many have been twisted by Paganism and used to worship their Pagan gods which come from their own fleshy understanding and has been passed on through the Generations. S G
 Sadly some Christians  because of Paganism and Satan’s deception, reject Christmas day and now do not Celebrate Christmas on the 25th of December which Scripture shows clearly is when Jesus was born (see links below ) but regardless of what day had been chosen by God for the Birth of Jesus, His Son, Pagans would have still used it to worship their gods in opposition, with being motivated by Satan to do so.S G

For many years I use to look for the homes with Christmas lights around my area and often traveled to see them, many would have the Nativity but sadly not so today , Santa has the prominent place in most of their decorations. See Barbs Link below…..

Yes it is VERY sad but it does not surprise me anymore, although I was upset to see one of the well known Churches in our area had on their Church sign…. We are joining Santa for a wonderful Christmas.

Impressed I think not, well you can be sure we won’t be going to their Christmas service just in case they have baby Santa in the manger and they have the Elves leading Communion, which will be milk and cookies and of course Mrs Santa will be preaching while Rudolf the red nosed Reindeer, will take everyone for a sleigh ride up and down the main road, no snow of course but than we can make believe just like they are, that Christmas is not about Jesus, but jolly fat Santa.S G

The Gift Of Lasting Love…..

StarJesus birth 1S G

The Gift Of Lasting LoveS G

Christmas will always stay the same in the hearts of Christ’s people His birth will forever be proclaimed.S G

 The Joy of His gift can never be surpassed the Hope and the Wonder will always last.S G

Be it Christmas trees, Santa, Gifts galore or Traditions handed down from Centuries before. S G

The True meaning of Christmas remains the same Love given so freely in Jesus Christ’s Name. S G

 We reflect on His Love given from His Heart knowing it was with us right from the start.S G

No one day can express the Hope that we have, or can His Love and Joy when given away end with the closing of Christmas day.S G

 So we enjoy this time but remember anew He gave His Love gift to see us through and because He Loved you and me Jesus His Son died on the tree to set us free.S G

The cruel Cross that He bore although The Fathers heart it tore was to bring us in Unity for evermore.S G

The Power of God’s Love

Bridge

It was a bitterly cold Christmas Eve in Korea in 1952.  A pregnant young mother, Bak Yoon, hobbled through the snow toward the home of a missionary friend where she knew she could find help.  Tears of sorrow froze on her face as she mourned her husband.

He had recently been killed in the Korean War, and she had no one else to turn to. 

A short way down the road from her missionary friend’s house was a deep gully spanned by a bridge. As Bak Yoon stumbled forward, birth pains suddenly overcame her. She fell, realizing that she could go no further, and crawled under the end of the bridge. 

 There, alone, under the bridge, her baby was born. Bak Yoon had nothing with her except her heavy, padded clothes.  One by one she removed all pieces of her clothing and wrapped them around her tiny son, still connected to her body by his umbilical cord.  Then feeling exhausted she lay back in the snow beside her baby.

The next morning Miss Watson, long-time missionary, drove across the bridge in her car to take a Christmas basket of food to a needy Korean family. 

On her way back, as she got near the bridge, the car sputtered and died — out of gasoline.  She got out of the car and started across the bridge.  Through crunching snow under her feet she heard another sound — a baby’s faint cry.  She stopped, unbelieving, and heard the cry again. 

 “It’s coming from beneath the bridge!”  She crawled under the bridge to investigate and there she found a tiny, bundled baby, warm but hungry, and young Bak Yoon frozen in death. 

With a knife from her toolbox she cut the cord and took the baby home with her.  After caring first for the child, she, along with some helpers, brought Bak Yoon’s body back to near where she lived and buried her there. She named the baby Soo Park, and adopted him. 

 He was strong and healthy and so grew up among many other orphan children that Miss Watson cared for.  But to her, Soo Park was special.  She often told him,

 “Your mother had great love for you, Soo Park”, and about how she had proven that love.  He never tired of hearing of his beautiful mother.

On Christmas day, his 12th birthday, snow was falling. After the children had helped Soo Park celebrate his birthday, he came and sat beside Miss Watson. 

“Mother Watson, do you think God made your car run out of gasoline the day you found me?” he asked.  “Perhaps He did”, she answered. 

“If that car hadn’t stopped, I would not have found you.  But I am so glad it stopped.  I Love you and am very proud of you, Soo Park.” She put her arms around him.  He rested his head against her. 

 “Mother Watson, will you please take me out to my mother’s grave?  I want to pray there.  I want to thank her for my life.”  “Yes, but put on your heavy coat.  It’s very cold.” 

Beside the grave, Soo Park asked Mother Watson to wait at a little distance.  She walked aside and waited.  As the astonished missionary watched, the boy began to take off his warm clothing, piece by piece. 

Surely he won’t take off all his clothing! She thought. He’ll freeze! But the boy stripped himself of everything, laid it all on his mother’s grave, and knelt naked and shivering in the snow.  She waited one minute, two minutes.  Then she put her gloved hand on his snow-covered shoulder. 

“Come, Soo Park.  Your mother in Heaven sees how much you Love her I will help you dress.” Then in deep sorrow he cried out to the mother he never knew: “Were you colder than this for me, my mother?” And he wept bitterly because he knew of course, she was.

From “The Short Circuit,” a student publication of Asbury Theological Seminary Volume 86, Dec. 6th, 1986, No. 11S GS G
Jesus stripped Himself of His Royal garments to come and live among us.  “Was He that cold for us?” Surely we never have to wonder if He Loves us, or even how much He Loves us. He demonstrated that to us nearly 2000 years ago and He reminds us constantly, when we have ears to hear and eyes to see. 

JESUS

We Celebrate in His Love.
