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. (Isaiah 9:6)
The Oneness of God can be shown throughout this particular passage of scripture as Isaiah prophecies the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ. We know that the son was Jesus, and according to this scripture Jesus is The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, and Counsellor (Holy Ghost) along with several other manifestations. While scripture does not support December 25th as the actual day our Lord Jesus Christ was born, it does not negate the fact that his birth shouldnt be commemorated in some way.
We must recognize that in addition to His birth, we can assure our salvation in Him by commemorating His life, death, and resurrection through water baptism in the precious Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Acts 2:38)
For me, Christmas is no longer about trees, lights, and the giving of gifts. For me, it’s a time to reflect on the need for a human saviour to be born. A human that was both God and Man. A human who was born into a world of sin, yet knew no sin. A human that had emotions and feelings just like you and I, yet a God that could forgive sins right on the spot!
As the close of another year comes, and as the dawn of a new year slowly arrives, lets take the time to be thankful for thinking so much of “little ole me” to come down from heaven and physically save such a wretch like me. That, my dear friend is the true meaning of the Birth of Christ!
HAVE A MERRY DECEMBER 25TH AND A GLORIOUS NEW YEAR
