Why do I worship Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior? Because I've sought
the matter out and I've come to know that Jesus is not the actions of
sinful men doing things in His name, but rather He is separate and
isolated, called even, "Holy, Holy, Holy" (three times) in scripture.
Jesus is not the actions of sinful men, and their domineering spirit
lording over people their power, their will. He is freedom from all
of that, and it is personal ... between you and Him. It's not between
you and a church, you and a priest, you and anything else. It is that
which is between you and Him. The person you look at in the mirror,
He will forgive you of your sin and give you eternal life. All you
have to do is repent of your sin and ask Him. He could not have made
it any easier and still give you a choice.
Go to a Christmas service this evening. Learn about the true meaning
of Christmas. You'll hear about how the night skies opened up and the
light shone all around and a chorus of speaking angels appeared to men
to announce His birth. The shepherds left the flocks they were attending
by night and went to seek the one whose birth was so announced (by such
a vast array of Heavenly Hosts).
The Shepherds and Angels
8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field,
keeping watch over their flock by night.
9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of
the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you
good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour,
which is Christ the Lord.
12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped
in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly
host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward
Note: Peace on Earth through Jesus Christ. And "good will" toward men.
15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into
heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even
unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which
the Lord hath made known unto us.
16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the
babe lying in a manger.
17 And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying
which was told them concerning this child.
18 And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were
told them by the shepherds.
19 But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.
20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all
the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto
We do not have peace on Earth today because men follow the enemy of
God rather than God.
God has already made peace with man and man's sin through Jesus Christ's
atoning death at the cross, His burial, and His resurrection from the
The good news is: Peace between God and man has come, through the man
Jesus Christ. He ALONE holds the key to your eternal salvation, the
ability to save your everlasting soul from death.
