LUKE 2:1-20
King James Version (KJV)

1And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.

2(And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

3And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

4And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

5To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

6And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

7And 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.

8And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

9And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

10And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

11For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.

12And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

13And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

14Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

15And 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.

16And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

17And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.

18And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.

19But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.

20And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

To: Kathy in Alaska; All

A candymaker in Indiana wanted to make a special candy for Christmas, so he made a Christmas Candy “Cane”. He incorporated several symbols for the birth, ministry, and death of Jesus Christ.

He began with a stick of pure, white, hard candy. White to symbolize the Virgin Birth and the sinless life of Jesus. Hard to symbolize the “Solid Rock” foundation of the Church and the firmness of the promises of God.

The candymaker made the candy in the form of a “ J “ to represent the name of Jesus, whose birth we celebrate. It also represents the staff of the “Good Shepherd” who reaches down into the ditches of life and pulls us out.

Thinking that the candy was somewhat plain, the candymaker stained it with the red stripes. He used three small stripes to represent the scourging that Jesus received before his death. The large red stripe was for the blood that Jesus gave through his death, which gives us an opportunity to receive eternal life.

Unfortunately ,the candy became known as a candy cane, a meaningless decoration seen mostly at Christmas. But the meaning is still there to those who know it's history.

I sincerely hope that this special candy will have more significance for all of you this year.

Anyone who truly understands the relationship between the Cain & Abel story and the Sabbath for the Land will know why shepherds were the first to be told.

I sang Handel's "For Unto Us..." when I was in high school (ages and ages ago).

I don't have the rest of my old high school choir to sing with me; however, I did perform my humble rendition of Do You Hear What I Hear".

A Liberal on an AOL board requested it.

Someone made that for me while I was in Iraq, and I can’t believe it was years ago now.

Just seemed right to rollit out this time.

Merry Christmas, Teen!
