Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call His name Immanuel. (Isaiah 7:14)
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)
We celebrate His birth, but more importantly we remember His death, burial and resurrection until He comes again. For that is the real reason He came. The Cross is the real Christmas tree. All things point to it. All scripture speaks of Jesus Christ. His birth as GOD in the flesh was foretold as payment for our sIn. And when we receive Him, we will be born again. When we surrender to Him on His terms, we will be saved. The best gift of all. Make this a real Christmas; accept His free gift of Love, Grace and Mercy on your behalf and become one of His Children today.
If you are already a child of the King, let someone else know of the real miracle of Christmas this season.
