MERRY CHRISTMAS ALL!

My Christmas Message! I know this text is not particularly profound or even well written but as I contemplated Christmas Eve I felt the need to share these thoughts with all of my ‘Net Brothers and Sisters. You are the ones with whom I have contact information and consider My Family: Over 2000 years ago, the greatest Monarch in the universe demonstrated an amazing level of Love towards the entire human race. In spite of the fact that every person on this planet was totally flawed and dominated by sin and rebellion towards their Creator, that same God began an epic 33 year journey to bring about Salvation to this worthless species known as mankind. This omnipotent, eternal Creator of the universe chose to demonstrate His miraculous everlasting Love by subjecting Himself to the indignity of becoming one of us in order that He might reconcile us to Himself. We were totally unworthy of this gracious, unmerited favor and had no true value in our sinful condition, yet The Lord God had an incredible, unfathomable Love for us of such incredible depth that He allowed Himself to be born to a poor teenage virgin in an insignificant village in Bethlehem in a rude and dirty stable. From that miraculous event, He went on to live a sinless life, subjected to the same frailties and temptations as we experience, but without sin. He then offered Himself as a willing sacrifice to pay the penalty for our justly deserved crimes against All Mighty God. For though He was in essence Love, He was also Righteous and Holy, shunning sin in His deity, yet paying for our sins with His precious life force-His blood. Finally, through His sinless life, gruesome death, and Devine resurrection, He secured for us an undeserved fellowship on an eternal scale with the Godhood of the Trinity in Heaven if we would simply Believe on Him, confess that we are a sinner, accept Him as our Personal Savior by Faith and Follow Him. Doing those things, from our hearts, each of us will be Spiritually Born Again with our names written in the Lamb’s Book of Life assuring us of our place in Heaven with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and all other Christians for Eternity! And this journey began on Christmas Day. THIS IS THE GIFT OF CHRISTMAS! May we all treasure this miraculous Treasure throughout the year and into eternity. Merry Christmas (translated Blessed Christmas in the old English) and God bless you all.

Do You Need a Friend This Christmas Eve?

BIBLE MEDITATION:

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” (Psalm 46:1).

For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5b).

(Psalm 46:1 and Hebrews 13:5b)

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

Some people over this holiday season feel so alone. One Christmas Eve I went to talk to a person who was hurting. I said, “Why don’t you call a friend?” She said, “I don’t have a friend.” I said, “Oh yes, you do.” And I told her His name. It is the One who said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Greek scholars tell us that sentence has five negatives in it. Now we say a double-negative is bad English, but evidently, it wasn’t bad Greek. Here’s what it literally says: “I will never, no not ever, no, never leave nor forsake you.”

Famed research analyst Dr. Abraham Maslow said, “The truth is that the average American does not have a real friend in the world.” And psychiatrist Alfred Adler said, “All human failures spring from a lack of love.” People need someone to love, and they need to be loved. Without it, their lives are full of fear and frustration. Hebrews 13:5 tells us we can face a new year with the certainty of His provision and with His companionship in our hearts and lives.

ACTION POINT:

Who do you know that might need a call from a friend today? A new widow? An empty-nester? A stay-at-home mom? Make that call. I URGE you to make that call on Christmas Day!

Please let me tell you a short story about a Father’s Love:

The Greatest Thing…

The Greatest thing that ever happened to me was when I realized that GOD forgave me of all my sins through the Death, Burial and Resurrection of His Son, Jesus and through my Faith in Him.”

 

=================================================================

Question: Who is this Jesus everyone is talking about?

Why is He so important in terms of what happens to my Soul, which resides in my body, until my body dies?
First, let me tell you that the Creator of the Universe, God the Father, truly Loves you and every member of the Human Race which He also created.
He also wants you and every human’s soul  to be in Heaven with Him when your body dies here on earth. The part of you that goes to Heaven when you die is your soul.
Everyone has a soul that merely resides within your body as a tenant; the soul NEVER dies. Again, Father God Loves every human that has ever been born since Adam and Eve, 6,000 years ago, and He WANTS your soul to live for Eternity, to which there is NO END, with Him! BUT there is a problem:
Ever since Adam and Eve the ENTIRE Human Race has been infected with a DISEASE and there is only ONE CURE for it! Please remember that God created the Universe AND the Human Race, making Him the Sovereign King of the Universe, in other words:
HE SETS THE RULES!
The disease that we all have, as soon as we are conceived in our Mother’s Womb, is SIN! Adam and Eve broke God’s only Commandment at the time while they were in the Garden of Eden: “Don’t eat of the fruit of the forbidden tree!”
When they disobeyed that one Commandment, they SINNED! They were no longer HOLY and God threw them out of the Garden and, as He had told them: Their bodies would eventually die BUT their souls would live on for Eternity.
2,000 years later, God gave Moses the 10 Commandments for the people to live by. He set the Rule that if anyone broke one of those Commandments they were to sacrifice an unblemished lamb to God and God seeing the blood of that lamb, would forgive that person’s sins.
2,000 years after that, which brings us to 2,000 years ago, Father God showed His Mercy and Grace upon the entire human race by sending His Only Begotten Son: Jesus, to this earth, as Prophesied hundreds of years earlier in the Old Testament (Isaiah 7:14), as a human baby, born of a Virgin named Mary in the City of Bethlehem of Judea!

THIS is the Jesus everyone is talking about today!

He lived a perfectly SINLESS life, performed thousands of miracles during the 3 years that He Ministered from the age of 30 until He was 33. His last miracle was raising a good friend of His, named Lazarus, from the dead after he had been dead and in a tomb in Bethany for FOUR DAYS!

This miracle, seen by many Priests and Rabbis and common people of Bethany, INFURIATED the Priests and Rabbis because all of the people were starting to follow Jesus instead of them! They then started to plan a way to get rid of Jesus!
After Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, He and His 12 Disciples went on in to Jerusalem for the Passover to Commemorate God’s freeing the Nation of Israel from the Egyptians hundreds of years earlier.
While in Jerusalem preparing for the Passover Dinner, one of Jesus’ Disciples, a traitor named Judas Iscariot, secretly met with the Priests and Rabbis and accepted 30 pieces of silver to BETRAY Jesus to them during the Passover Celebration.
During the Passover Supper with His 12 Disciples, including Judas, Jesus revealed the NEW COVENANT to them. This New Covenant would require Jesus to shed His Sinless Blood as Payment to Father God for the sins of the ENTIRE HUMAN RACE!
Later that night, as Jesus and all of the Disciples, except Judas, were Praying in the Garden of Gethsemane, Judas showed up with soldiers sent by the Priests and Rabbis to arrest Jesus.
Judas was leading them and walked up and kissed Jesus on the cheek identifying Him to the soldiers.
They arrested Him, took Him before the Priests and Rabbis, was given a mock trial and turned over to the Roman soldiers to be beaten, have a Crown of Thorns crushed down upon His Head and forced to carry His Own Cross through the streets of Jerusalem, out the gates to a place called Golgotha where they Nailed Jesus to the Cross He had been carrying and stood it up between two thieves.
Jesus COULD have called upon 72,000 Angels standing there with swords drawn ready to rescue Him, but He told them not to, that He had to Sacrifice His Life as Payment for the SINS of the entire Human Race.
After hanging on that Cross for 6 hours, as He was about to die, God the Father, supernaturally placed the SINS of the entire Human Race upon Him and then turned His Back upon His Only Begotten Son. Jesus saw His Father do this and shouted: “My God, My God, Why hast Thou forsaken Me?” And then dropped His Head, said “It is Finished” and died.
To make certain that He was dead, a Roman soldier forced a spear into His Side and Blood and Water spilled out.
Two followers of Jesus then went to the Roman authorites to obtain permission to remove Jesus’ Body from the Cross. They took His Body down, covered it with a long white sheet and carried it to a newly hewn grave where they laid His dead Body upon a pedestal and walked out.
Roman soldiers then rolled a large stone against the entrance, sealed it and stood guard.
On the morning of the third day, Father God, brought His Son Jesus BACK TO LIFE!
The stone was rolled away and Jesus made 10 appearances to 500 people after His Resurrection before ascending back into Heaven in front of His remaining Disciples commanding them to go to the entire world telling them about “My Death, Burial and Resurrection!”
So those are the FACTS concerning Jesus.
If, by Faith, you believe all of that to be true: That Jesus is the Son of God, that He died on that Cross for all of your sins, was Resurrected on the 3rd Day, we now call Easter and ascended back into Heaven to sit upon His Throne to the Right-Hand Side of God the Father and you can lift up a Prayer to God the Father Praying that you “Confess that you are a sinner and accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior by Faith, Repent of your sins and commit to trying to follow Him for the rest of your life, in Jesus’ Name.”
If you say that Prayer and really mean it, you will be Spiritually “Born Again”, your name will be Permanently written in the Lamb’s Book of Life and your Place in Heaven will be reserved in Heaven for ETERNITY!
CONGRATULATIONS!
Now go and tell the World about Jesus, the ONLY way into Heaven!
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
By the way, I must tell you that if you do NOT accept Jesus as your Personal Savior before you die, your soul will be eternally separated from God and on Judgment Day will be thrown into the Eternal Lake of Fire (Rev 20:15) with Satan.
It is your choice.

God Bless you,

Bob Lewis,Vietnam Vet,
