"The Actual Meaning of Christmas"

We live in some very ignorant times,

"Since you have forgotten the law of your God,
I also will forget your children."
Hosea 4:6
Because there is such nominal knowledge of God in our land, the actual meaning of Christmas has been all but lost.  During this current Christmas season, billions of people are setting aside their typical lifestyles to decorate their houses, participate in parties, attend special Christmas events at their local churches, Buy, BUY!!!  Christmas is EVERYWHERE, but the original "reason for the season" is virtually...GONE!

If someone were to ask you, "What is the meaning of Christmas?"  What would you say?  Undoubtedly (I hope), many of you are saying, "I know, I know!  Christmas is the birthday of Jesus Christ."  Well done!  You're right!  But let me ask you one more question,
"What was the significance of the birth of Jesus?
Well?  What's your answer?

Here's what the Bible, the word of God says,
"And the Word(Jesus) became flesh and dwelt 
among us...He is the radiance of His
and the exact representation of His nature...
He is the image of the invisible God." 
John 1:14; Hebrews 1:3; Colossians 1:15
 Jesus came to this earth to show us what God is like!  In fact, Jesus IS God in the flesh!  One day a guy by the name of Phillip asked Jesus, "Lord, show us the Father." And Jesus said to him, "He who has seen Me has seen the Father" (see John 14:1-10).

Phenonenal, isn't it?  All other religions and belief systems reflect man's feeble attempt to get to God, but the Bible tells the story of God's attempt to reach out to man!
"And there is salvation in no one else (Jesus),
for there is no other name under heaven that 
has been given among men by which we must be saved."
Acts 4:12
Merry Christmas!

"What Will You Do?"


"See to it that no one takes you captive
through philosophy and empty deception,
according to the elementary principles of the
world, rather than according to Christ."
Colossians 2:8

"See to it!"  We are to be pro-active in our dilligence against false teaching.  We must passionately fight it!  How?  Well, they teach those in the banking industry that the best way to identify a counterfeit is to be familiar with the real thing.  Such is the kingdom of God.  

"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge" 
(Hosea 4:6).  And so it is today.  "An appalling and horrible thing has happened in the land:  The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priest rule on their own authority...(see Jeremiah 5:30-31).  Multitudes are being "carried about by every wind of doctrine" (see Ephesians 4:14).

Why?  Because we don't know our Bibles (brothers and sisters, my only hope...your only hope...our ONLY HOPE! to know our Bibles).
