Merry Christmas!

Thanks to everyone who helped make the Bethlehem Story a reality!

God with us…. Emanuel!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jesus’ birth, life, and death were foretold, predicted, and recorded hundreds of years before the historic night in Bethlehem.

Here are ten prophecies from the Old Testament, fulfilled in the coming of Jesus:

 

1. Jesus will come from the line of Abraham. Prophecy: Genesis 12:3. Fulfilled: Matthew 1:1.

2. Jesus’ mother will be a virgin. Prophecy: Isaiah 7:14. Fulfilled: Matthew 1:18–23.

3. Jesus will be a descendent of Isaac and Jacob. Prophecy: Genesis 17:19 and Numbers 24:17. Fulfilled: Matthew 1:2.

4. Jesus will be born in the town Bethlehem. Prophecy: Micah 5:2. Fulfilled: Luke 2:1–7.

5. Jesus will be called out of Egypt. Prophecy: Hosea 11:1. Fulfilled: Matthew 2:13–15.

6. Jesus will be a member of the tribe of Judah. Prophecy: Genesis 49:10. Fulfilled: Luke 3:33.  

7. Jesus will enter the temple. This is important because the temple was destroyed in A.D. 70 and was never rebuilt. Prophecy: Malachi 3:1. Fulfilled: Luke 2:25–27.

8. Jesus will be from the lineage of King David. Prophecy: Jeremiah 23:5. Fulfilled: Matthew 1:6.

9. Jesus’ birth will be accompanied with great suffering and sorrow. Prophecy: Jeremiah 31:15. Fulfilled: Matthew 2:16

10. Jesus will live a perfect life, die by crucifixion, resurrect from death, ascend into heaven, and sit at the right hand of God. Prophecies: Psalm 22:16Psalm 16:10Isaiah 53:10–11Psalm 68:18Psalm 110:1. Fulfilled: 1 Peter 2:21–22Luke 23:33Acts 2:25–32Acts 1:9Hebrews 1:3.

 

The God who wrote the Scriptures rules over history. When he makes a promise, he is faithful to his Word.

  1. Matthew 1:18-21

    Now the birth(*) of Jesus Christ was on this wise…
    – When as [H]is mother Mary was espoused to Joseph
    before they came together [meaning no sex, yet]
    – she was found with child of the Holy Ghost [i.e. virgin]
    (* “birth” includes conception, pregnancy, and not just bringing to light)

    Then Joseph her husband, being a just man…
    – and not willing to make her a publick example
    – was minded to put her away privily
    – but while he thought on these things, behold
    (awesome that even our thoughts are known by God and His angels!!)

    the angel of the Lord appeared unto him..
    – in a dream saying, Joseph thou son of David
    – fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife
    – for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost

    And she shall bring forth a son…
    – and thou shalt call [H]is name JESUS [in modern Hebrew, YESHUA]
    – for [H]e shall save [H]is people from their sins

    If “save his people from their sins” only applied to the Jews…
    – then the rest of the Israelites and the gentiles would all still be damned

    Apostates have to cut out the the name of Christ — then as yet unborn but clearly a living person — to delude themselves in justifying the killing of fetuses (i.e. babies). LA cited a billion slaughtered world wide.

    Life Matters! The message to the lost is this: open your ears and open your eyes, believe and understand. If you don’t get this in all the season’s celebrations — then nothing else matters — for you. For God so Loved The World, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him will not perish — but have everlasting life. Christ’s resurrection is our guarantee. Believe and receive His gift.

    Yeshua Messiah — is not a baby now.

    He is the Revenger of Blood, who hears their cries, as even the blood itself testifies.

    Tell the whole story. He didn’t come to bring peace on earth or save the whole world.

    He has come in flesh as Son of God — conceived by the Holy Ghost…
    – was crucified, resurrected, ascended, will rule the heavens,
    – and is coming again to SAVE ALL HIS PEOPLE
    – and to separate the damned from them

    He’s not a babe in the manger, no more❗

  2. It doesn’t matter when Christ was born; it matters that He was! God became man, and burst into a world full of sin and confusion and danger. He loved us. He wanted to make a way for us to be with Him for eternity, which is exactly what happened.

    Whether you go all-out for Christmas or not, think on these things and praise Him for His mercy and great love.

    Merry Christmas!

    • and thank goodness Daniel’s singular capabilities as both statesman of the world superpower and as a man after God’s heart, were completely focussed toward His city. Such that his school of wise men’s passion for Jesus, 600 years later, brought them 1000s of miles, “out of” Babylon, “out of” Chaldea, to Bethlehem, confirming the Kingship, and bringing highly-valuable goods, right before the flight to Egypt🙂

    • “It’s a stream of Judaism because the New Testament belonged to us before they took it to Christianity.” kaboowhmm! “http://www.israeltoday.co.il/NewsItem/tabid/178/nid/25708/Default.aspx?utm_content=buffer38101&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=latestnews”

      Shulam responded with the story of a famous Jewish rabbi who came to faith in Yeshua and who explained the faith-based relationship between Israel and the Church as being like a giant jigsaw puzzle. “The Jewish people have 70 percent of the pieces, but the Church has the centerpiece,” the rabbi was said to have taught, concluding that “we can never finish the puzzle without the Church, and the Church can never finish the puzzle without Israel.” “http://www.israeltoday.co.il/NewsItem/tabid/178/nid/25672/Default.aspx”

  4.      Since some celebrate Christ's natural birth on 12-25 and some on 1-06/07...
     
    -    how 'bout we split the difference and celebrate Christmas on 1-01
    -    (without the fireworks of course and a great time to regift)
    -    there could be 2 celebrations this year

  9. TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS IN THE WHITE HOUSE

    Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the White House,
    Not a repeal draft of the Obama Care bill was stirring,
    Not even under Michael’s …cough! cough!… I mean Michell’s blouse (the one laying over in the corner on the floor).
    The stockings were hung by the dictator’s … cough! cough! … I mean President’s chair,
    In hopes that the repeal bill would soon be there.
    Obama’s children were all snug in there beds,
    While visions of daddy’s greatness danced in their heads.
    And Michael … cough! cough! … I mean Michelle in her kerchief, and Obama in his cap,
    Had just settled down for a long winter’s knap.
    When out on the White House lawn, there arose such a clatter,
    Obama rose from his bed to see what was the matter.
    Away to the window he flew like a flash,
    He tore open the shutters
    And got out his cocaine stash
    The moon on the breast of the new fallen snow
    Gave the lustre of midday to Obama’s cocaine stash below
    When what to Obama’s wandering eyes should appear,
    But a big and powerful state militia
    and eight tiny reindeer
    With a little old driver so lively and quick
    I knew in a moment, it must be the head of the militia dressed in red as St. Nick
    More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
    And he whistled, and shouted, and called Obama and henchmen by name.
    NOW HOLDER!, NOW BIDEN!, NOW KERRY!, NOW HAGEL!
    COME VILSACK!, COME DUNCAN!, COME McDONALD! AND JOHNSON!
    Now dash away! dash away! Dash away all!
    As dry leaves before the mighty militia fly
    When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky.
    So up to the house top the coursers they flew,
    With a sleigh full of arrest warrants, and handcuffs too.
    And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof,
    The scuffling and trampling of each big hoof.
    As Obama drew in his hand, and was turning around,
    Down the chimney the head of the militia came with a resounding bound.
    He was dressed all in army fatigue from his head to his foot,
    And his uniform was all tarnished with ashes and soot.
    A bundle of handcuffs he had flung on his back,
    And he looked like a marine just opening his pack.
    His eyes – how they twinkled, his dimples how merry!
    His cheeks were like roses from anger and high blood pressure, his nose like a cherry!
    His scowling mouth was drawn up like a bow,
    And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow.
    The stump of a cigar he held tight in his teeth,
    And the smoke, it encircled his head like a wreath.
    He had a broad face and biceps like steel,
    that rippled when he thrust the handcuffs toward Obama’s hands and smiled
    Like he had just caught his biggest and last meal
    He was powerful and robust, a right jolly old bear,
    The rest of the militia laughed when they saw him, trying not to stare.
    A wink of his eye, and twist of his head,
    Soon gave the rest of the militia to know, they had nothing to dread.
    He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work.
    And ordered the rest of the militia to arrest the rest of Obama’s cabinet,
    then turned with a jerk.
    And laying his armaments aside, he scratched aside of his nose,
    And giving a nod to the rest of the militia, up the chimney with the rest of the criminals of Obama’s cabinet they rose,
    They sprang to their helicopter, to his team gave a whistle,
    And away they all flew with the criminals in handcuffs like the down of a thistle,
    But I heard him exclaim, er he and the rest of the militia drove out of sight,
    MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!!!!! ……. AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!!!!!!
