A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE FOR ALL TO SEE; MANY ARE BLINDED BY THE WORLD

A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE FOR ALL TO SEE; MANY ARE BLINDED BY THE WORLD

There is a light shining brightly for all to see from a stable with a baby Jesus who was born in a manger in Bethlehem. It is important to understand the meaning behind the miraculous birth. The celebration of Christmas signifies the birth of our savior, son of God, who came to give the world a second chance to repent and be cleansed from all sin, after the sin of Adam and Eve. Jesus came to earth to be an example for all men, and suffer so that we can follow him. Many are blinded by the world, and cannot see the light, and do not understand the spiritual meaning of the birth of Jesus, and his second coming. Many have predicted that the second coming is close. He will be coming soon to take his beloved righteous children who have decided to follow his example. {{more}}The meaning of Christmas is much more than the decorating and buying gifts for loved ones. It is sad that numerous people celebrate Christmas participating in the cooking, eating and the family reunions, but they do not know what the true meaning of Christmas is. The hustle and bustle of good cheer includes welcoming Santa Claus at this time, but how many individuals welcome Jesus in their heart and life. They do not know that Jesus is in them when they do small things for others, yet they are still partially in cold water seeking the worldly things.The decision to ignore what the true meaning of the coming of Christ through his birth is very transparent in the world today because of what is happening. Bloodshed continues to occur in the natural, taking lives by surprise in numbers through world disasters and storms. Without the birth of Jesus Christ, no one on earth would have a chance to accept Christ, and be a born again cleansed and can become a saved Christian, and purified with the blood of the lamb. Many men who make the decision to follow the evil of this world will experience the destruction of God’s own nature.“Behold a whirlwind of the Lord is gone forth in fiery, even a grievous whirlwind; it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked.” Jeremiah 24:19There are some Christians who call themselves believers, yet take the cross and burn it to the ground. . To be a Christian means to take up the cross each day like Jesus did; not engage in evil against other people, and that includes towards other believers. Taking up the cross means to love your fellowman; not to wish him bad fate, or engage in jealousy, envy, malice or anything that is against the will of God. Thinking bad deeds for others is just the same thing. It is sin, and Jesus died to take away sin. Taking up the cross means to be like Jesus who shed his blood for us. Jesus was born to give us a second chance, and when we accept him, we submit spiritually to his God’s will for our life.During this Christmas holiday, decide to take up the cross and not give it up. Enjoy the season with all the fixings and good cheer with family and friends and who are not so very fortunate. I pray that with every good deed there is a heart that melts for Jesus Christ, and seeks him for their life.
