The Birth of Christ: Luke 2:11

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

Today’s message is our Christmas message, which tells of the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who was prophesied many years before Christ was born. The birth of Christ is the most celebrated day in history. It is the fulfilled promised of God the Father who promised to send a Savior to atone the sins of the world.
The birth of Christ fulfills the prophecy that was prophesied by the prophet Isaiah when he stated that a virgin would bring forth a son, and His name shall be called Immanuel, which means God with us. Mary was the virgin who brought forth Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior.
God’s actions of giving His only begotten Son to be the Savior of the world depicts the heart of God, which is love.
The wise men who visited Jesus took gifts as a form of worship and expression of thankfulness for the birth of our Savior. Gifts are given in commemoration of the greatest gift that humanity has ever received, which is salvation.  We celebrate the birth of our Savior as an expression of thanksgiving to our heavenly Father and Savior, Jesus Christ for salvation.
We honor God for who He is and His Plan of Salvation through the birth of Jesus Christ; therefore, without Christ, there is no Christmas.
We welcome your comments.

The Prophesied Christ: Isaiah 7:14

Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

In preparation for the birth of Christ, our Lord and Savior Jesus, I felt it necessary to remind everyone
that Christ’s birth was prophesied many generations before it was fulfilled.

In Isaiah’s prophecy, he was precise in the foretelling of Christ’s birth; He would be born of a Virgin woman and provided the name of the Christ child, which was Immanuel, that means God with us. Christ is God the Father’s only begotten Son; therefore, God is with us through Jesus Christ, who was present at the beginning with God during creation (John 1:1).

Therefore, as we prepare for the celebration of this glorious day, let us remember why and who we are glorifying, and we give gifts in commemoration of the greatest gift ever given-salvation through Jesus Christ.

Hail to the king of glory.
