Two words that for some increase blood pressure. Why ?!
What about Happy Hanukkah or Happy Ramadan! Am I offended by these words? No!
For Christians, Christmas is a day when we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
"For God so loved the world that he saved his only begotten Son, that all who believe in him should not perish but have eternal life." (John 3: 16)
I say JOY TO THE WORLD! GLORY!
Why should we (Christians) be ashamed of this? … Jesus is the only HOPE for the world.
Would you agree that every time we say Merry Christmas? "We are ashamed"
This may seem difficult to my friend and I must admit that I have been guilty of this, so I do not judge here, but we should not ask God to help us to be bold at all times and not be afraid of the man or his opinion?
Romans 3 vs. 4 says, "Not at all, God be true, and every human being is a liar."
The God of the universe is not our Father?
God loves us and totally control our lives What can man do outside the will of the Father in our lives? Amen!
The Christmas War is just a way the enemy (SATAN) attacks Christians
Look around you, do you see such outrage at other religious holidays? The Christmas War is just another way Christians are persecuted for their faith around the world.
I'm reminded from this verse: Ephesians 6 vs. 12 "For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness above the places."
Pay attention to my friend, when a man or woman comes against you, persecute you and say things about you because of Christ, he is inspired by Satan and his demons.
In Ephesians 2 vs. 2 The Apostle Paul reminds us: "You lived in sin, like the rest of the world, obedient to the devil – the commander of powers in the invisible world, refusing to obey God."
As a Christian, God expects us to live humbly before all men and to be a light that shines in a dark world. He also wants us to boldly proclaim his love for humanity. Christmas is a time when we can boldly proclaim the birth of our Messiah in a lost and dying world.
This month of December asks God to cut the confusion so that you remember him at Christmas. It is the reason why we celebrate and that it is praised forever!
Then join me saying, MERRY CHRISTMAS, MERRY CHRISTMAS, MERRY CHRISTMAS!
