"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
The mighty God,
The everlasting Father,
The Prince of Peace."
~ Isaiah 9:6 ~
"Kneel before the Babe of Bethlehem. Accept the truth that the Kingdom of Heaven is for the lowly, the simple.
Bring to me, the Christ-child, your gifts, truly the gifts of earth's wisest.
The Gold - your money.
Frankincense - the adoration of a consecrated life.
Myrrh - your sharing in My sorrows and those of the world.
"And they presented unto Him gifts: gold, frankincense and myrrh." "
~ A Devotional Diary: God Calling, 1945 ~
Jesus Christ is the only reason Christmas is celebrated; Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven. He said, "You must be born again" and "I am the way, the truth and the life." The only way to heaven is to accept Jesus Christ as God's only Son and your Savior. His Holy Spirit will not always woo a person; there will come a time when His Holy Spirit will leave each to their own opinion. When that time comes, hell for all eternity is the future. C. S. Lewis said, "Each day we are becoming a creature of splendid glory or one of unspeakable horror." Choose wisely; your very soul is dependent upon your choice.
