Breaking News: Jesus Christ Is Born!!!!!!!
The Bible | 12-25-2009 | my favorite headache

Posted on 12/24/2009 10:12:40 PM PST by My Favorite Headache

Luke 2: 1-20 The Story of Christ's Birth

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem (because he was of the house and lineage of David), to be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being with child.

And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord come upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, "Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger." And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."

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 king which is to come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us." And they came with haste, and found Mary and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. And all that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

Merry Christmas everybody...it’s been a rough year but I have a good feeling about our side of the spectrum shining through in 2010. Have faith in he who is born today in Bethlehem.

And One Day...the Messiah that was once a newborn infant will return as the KING of KINGS and the FAITHFUL and TRUE.

And ALL who ever mocked, blasphemed, hated and despised HIM will bow and confess to WHO HE IS/

I like it when the birth announcements come out early:

"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."

Cheers!

He most certainly was born, but not in December. Nevertheless, in principle, what a joyous occasion.

By the way if anyone is interested...VH1 Classic is doing 14 hours straight of classic Christmas videos from 1955-2009. Started airing at 11 pm...it’s awesome. If you have the channel turn it on for some great memories.

My reading in the Carols and Lessons service tonight:
"And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

And they came with haste, and found Mary and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger."

Yes, indeed, our real Messiah: born (around) 2010 years ago, born to die to pay the price for humanity’s sins, so that we all can rise up together in Heaven.

Happy Birthday, Jesus! And Merry Christmas to all!

Sounds like a narrative of something that will happen in the not to far future... one world tax.

Revelation 12:10-11 (King James Version)

10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven,
Now is come Salvation, and strength,
and the kingdom of our God,
and the power of His Christ:
for the accuser of our brethren is cast down,
which accused them before our God day and night.

11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb,
and by the word of their testimony;
and they loved not their lives unto the death.


1 John 5:4-5 (King James Version)

4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world:
and this is the victory that overcometh the world,
even our faith.

5 Who is he that overcometh the world,
but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

Mary, Did You Know?

Mary, did you know that your baby boy will one day walk on water?
Mary, did you know that your baby boy will save our sons and daughters?
Did you know that your baby boy has come to make you new?
This child that you've delivered, will soon deliver you.

Mary, did you know that your baby boy will give sight to a blind man?
Mary, did you know that your baby boy will calm a storm with His hand?
Did you know that your baby boy has walked where angels trod?
And when you kiss your little baby, you've kissed the face of God.

The blind will see, the deaf will hear, the dead will live again.
The lame will leap, the dumb will speak the praises of the Lamb.

Mary, did you know that your baby boy is Lord of all creation?
Mary, did you know that your baby boy will one day rule the nations?
Did you know that your baby boy is Heaven's Perfect Lamb?
This sleeping child you're holding is the Great I Am.
