God with Us? Part-One.

Root of David!

The account of the shepherds out in the fields being visited by the heavenly host is a lovely account of the grace and mercy of our God! But why did he appear to these men, well that should be obvious, since the ancestor of Jesus was King David who started out life as a shepherd boy?

Jesus later would refer to Himself as , ‘I Am the good shepherd!

This theme of shepherding sheep literally and also Spiritually in the sense of leadership and responsibility is one to be heeded, since many today look after themselves first!

God is warning us who are in this role to end it, because we will at the end have to give an account of our actions to Him!

1 Kings 17:34,  Ezekiel 34:5-23,  Matthew 1:23,  12:36,  Luke 1:27,  2:8-20,  John 10:11,  14, Romans 14:12,  1 Peter 4:5.

Preparation’s for Christmas?

Black Friday to Christmas Eve!

The mad rush now for the Christmas season has began with American style hype over their sales? But this is more than the season of merriment, it is also the time for scammers to be at work online for those unsuspecting bargain hunters?

In this mad rush and as the days near what is now termed the holidays, it seems each year the world looses sight of what this season is really about? Cards, trees, Santa, snowmen, are all slowly replacing, the baby Jesus born of the virgin, the wise men, shepherds and the truth of God giving to us the free gift of His one and only Son Jesus!

Isaiah 9:6-7,    Matthew 1:23,    Luke  1:27,    2 Corinthians 11:2.

Jesus, witness the Truth. One.

‘Glory to God in the Highest.’

Angels appeared to shepherds in the field to tell them to good new that Jesus their Messiah was born in stable! This apperance is not a fluke, but points to Jesus ancestor David the King of Israel and friend of God?

Many people still have the religion that they were brought up into today, but everything to some is order and tradition? It is not based on faith or trust in God, there is no personal relationship with God, with Jesus?

But many thousands each year do come to a personal faith in Jesus as their own personal Lord and Saviour! They had an encounter with Jesus, that has changed their outlook from keeping rules to being set free?

Isaiah 53:4-7,  Luke 1:34-38,  Luke 2:10-15,  Romans 3:23,  6:23,  1 John 1:9.

Xmass. Part-Four.

Wanting to Praise.

Jesus birth was not a limited event, it was not by special membership or you had to get your ticket. Jesus was born in a stable full of animals and He was laid in a animal feeder.

The first to see Him where those nosey gossiping shepherds, then He was taken to the Temple on the eight day to be circumcised, because He was Jewish. One year later the wisemen or Magi from Persia arrived to see this special child, a little one year-old boy.

What did they all have in common, they were glad to see His coming and they worshipped and praised Him.

Matthew 1-2, Luke 1-2.
