Almighty God's Christmas Song Witness!
















Where ever you go now during this "holiday" season, Christmas music is playing and many of the Christmas songs have a sound Biblical message of salvation. What Child is This?, O Little Town of Bethlehem, Hark the Herald Angels Sing, O Holy Night, O Come Emanuel, Go Tell it on the Mountain, O Come all Ye Faithful, The First Noel, Angels We Have Heard on High, O Come Let Us Adore Him, Joy to the World etc.. are all screaming the wondrous TRUTH that a Savior is born! However... as these songs play with their saving message they sail far over the heads of busy unregenerate men and women who have no time this season to slow down and consider why they so desperately need a Savior (Isa 53, John 3:16-17, Rom. 3:23, 6:23, 10:2-4, 1 John 4:10, Rev. 20:11-15).

However... as these songs play with their saving message they sail far over the heads of busy unregenerate men and women who have no time to slow down and consider why they so desperately need a Savior.

I marvel at how Almighty God's unknowing messengers of the Gospel at Christmas time or this "Holiday Season" are some of the most godless and secular outlets. It must drive the god of this world nuts to know that Almighty God is using his Hollywood Parade, godless music artists, TV stations, radio stations, department stores, work, convenience stores, gas stations etc... etc...  to get out His saving message to a world in which Satan oppresses and deceives (Eph. 2:1-2). Many of these songs are a personal rebuke to him and teem with the ETERNAL TRUTHS of his soon ETERNAL demise (Gen. 3:15, Rev. 20:10).

 I marvel at how Almighty God's unknowing messengers of the Gospel at Christmas time or this "Holiday Season" are some of the most godless and secular outlets.

The Christmas season is an awesome time for personally sharing the simple and wonderful message of Jesus Christ without really a lot of opposition. I have found that many people are really receptive at this time, but of course, there is still a strong government opposition, but generally, Almighty God in our post-Judeo/Christian culture has given us an open door to still share the TRUE Christmas message (Rev. 3:8). Christian Christmas songs - which hold absolute TRUTH, sound doctrine and sound Biblical REALITY - are a wonderful way to point out the Gospel message (Matt. 1:21, John 1:12, Acts 16:28-30, 1 Cor. 15:2-4, Rev. 1:5) to those around us who know all the words by heart but never ever considered what they truly mean. I can't tell you how many times in my 28 years walking with Him that the Lord has given me an open door that I have been able to point out these wonderful ETERNAL TRUTHS! Tragically, many who hear these wonderful Christmas TRUTHS (apostate Christians and secular) have no room in their heart for them, but that does not mean that we do not herald Almighty God's saving message at this time of the season

This Christmas season allow Almighty God to use you to be His personal vessel to witness as the angels of old did that first Christmas night; that a Savior is born (Luke 2)!

Eph 5:15-16!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

The 82nd Anniversary of Pearl Harbor and the Day of the Lord!

Today (December 7th) marks the 82nd year anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor naval base. How sad that this date - which would live in infamy - has been nearly forgotten by toady's American population and especially our youth. Tragically it has been the successful revision of our American history by the Left and the evils of it that has made us weak and vulnerable to a present day "Pearl Harbor" of  EXPONENTIAL proportions (Rev. 6).

It was under the deception of peace and negotiations that Japan struck without warning.

To set the stage for 1941, tensions were high between Tokyo and Washington. Japan had been flexing its military muscle through out China and ravishing the Chinese people and their neighboring countries. Japan's naval might was astounding and they dominated the Pacific ocean. It was under the deception of peace and negotiations that Japan struck without warning. They attacked first, THEN declared war! How and why did America not see what was eventually coming baffles people to this day? In light of Japan's aggressive military advancements and military policies the evidence was more than abundant. Sadly, our guard was up BUT... we deceived ourselves that we were safe from the threat of the Japanese Imperial Navy and their military aggressions. The mind set was that it could not happen to us? We are safe, surrounded by the two big ponds and we are America, the greatest nation in the world. Who could EVER attack us? This same mindset was also present on 9/11/2001.

On a beautiful SUNDAY morning when our guard was down and day dreaming of a positive bright future for the world and our children infamy struck.
.
On a beautiful SUNDAY morning when our guard was down and day dreaming of a positive bright future for the world and our children infamy struck. The attacks on Pearl Harbor shocked our nation and woke a sleeping giant to the realities of this big bad fallen evil world. That day America personally experienced the horrific aggressive appetites of the world's power hungry war pigs of their day and the result was horrific war.

Since 1941 we as a nation and a world have EXPONENTIALLY changed for the worse. Our barbarity, decadence, lasciviousness, greed, violence and narcissism has saturated our world from top to bottom and the evidence of it is every where. With the arrival of the technology age all have access to its  mighty power. There is absolutely no comparison to our day (2021) then that of 1941. We have EXPONENTIALLY changed as individuals, callus and wanton. The technological advances have demonstrated as we as a world have expressed to all who that we are more evil and more godless than ever (conservative and liberal). We have demonstrated to angels good and bad every where that we DO NOT NEED Almighty God's PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS - which is found ONLY in Jesus Christ - and are quite self sufficient and content in our fallen humanity (conservative or liberal) to exist without our Creator in SPIRIT and TRUTH (John 1:10, Rom. 1:18-32, 10:2-4).

The technological advances OF OUR DAY have demonstrated to all who pay attention that we are more evil and more godless than ever (conservative and liberal).

It will be this very mindset and godless attitude that will lead this oblivious present world straight into the Day of the Lord and into the unimaginable, (the reception of Lucifer's and his anti Christ - 2 Thess. 2:3-12, Rev. 6-9, 13). As the attacks on Pearl Harbor and 9/11 OVERTOOK a sleeping nation so will the Day of the Lord OVER TAKE a sleeping America and an entire world (1 Thess. 5:3, Rev. 6-16). An overwhelming majority of the world's inhabitants (conservative and liberal) REJECT the RIGHTEOUS REALITIES of Almighty God's Word and its prophetic TRUTHS. Deep in their hearts mankind KNOWS without a shadow of a doubt that Almighty God's Day of Reckoning is at hand (Rom. 1:32). Sadly they seek to suppress and block out these REALITIES in the fear that they would have to repent and be saved (Rom. 1:18-32, 2 Thess. 2:10, Rev. 21:8, 27). How tragic!

An overwhelming majority of the world's inhabitants (conservative and liberal) REJECT the RIGHTEOUS REALITIES of Almighty God's Word and its prophetic TRUTHS.

The Holy Scriptures give ample warnings to be awake and on our guard about the day and hour in which we are presently living in. NOT to be asleep, but awake (Rom. 13:11, Thess. 5:6)! NOT to be idle, but redeeming the time (Eph. 5:16-17)! NOT to be ignorant fools, but wise (2 Cor. 2:11, Rom. 10:3, 11:25, 1 Thess. 4:13-18). NOT to be unbelieving, but believing (Mark 11:22, Heb. 11:6, James 1:6-8, 1 John 5:4)! Sadly many professing "Christians" know not the TRUE Christ of Holy Scripture and are deceiving themselves about their ETERNAL estate (Matt 7:21-23, Rom. 10:2-4, Jude 1:10). They themselves are looking for a delusional earthly world utopia and are oblivious to the Battle of Armageddon, Christ's glorious return to earth and the establishment of the 1000 year Kingdom of Heaven on earth.(Isa. 2:1-5, 11, Micah 4:1-4, Matt. 7:21-23, 15:7-9, Rev. 16:13-16, 19:11-21). Is it no wonder that that Day comes as a thief in the night!

In these last days may we be the children of light that our Savior desires of us. May we be steadfast and unmovable as this world is about to enter the ultimate "Pearl Harbor" called,  "the Day of the Lord" (1 Thess. 5:3).

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

The Messiah in Hanukkah - Messianic Significance of Chanukah















The law did not require Jews to be at the Temple in Jerusalem, as this was not one of the pilgrimage festivals. Every one observed it in his own place, not as a holy time. Jesus was there that He might improve those eight days of holiday for good purposes.

Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon’s porch when the Sadduciens asked him “How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ tell us.” They pretended to want to know the truth, as if they were ready to embrace it; but it was not their intention. Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me. But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me (John 10:25-27). He had told them, and they believed not; why then should they be told again, merely to gratify their curiosity?

Miracles

Hanukkah’s theme is of a miracle. During Hanukkah Jesus spoke of His miracles: If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him (John 10:37-38). Jesus wanted the people of his day to see His miracles and believe in Him as a result. His miracles point to his divine and messianic identity. In this way Yeshua personifies the message of Hanukkah: God actively involved in the affairs of his people. Hanukkah reminds us that God is a God of miracles, not just of concept and religious ideals. He has broken through into human history and continues to do so today. All of us who know Yeshua can speak of God’s working in our lives (Gilman 1995).

Jesus is the Light of the World

Jesus preached three sermons in which he declared Himself the “light of the world,” and all three could have been during Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights. (It is not clear from the text when this incident happened, but it was some time between the Feast of Tabernacles and the Feast of Dedication (Hanukkah); both of these celebrations focused on light).Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth. While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them (John 12:35-36).

Just before Jesus announced that He was the Light of the world, Jesus had shone upon the conscience of those who accused the adulteress. Read the story in John Chapter 8. John also records Jesus healing a blind man (John 9:1-12) at about the same time (John 8:12 and 9:5) that Jesus declared himself to be the Light of the world. When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing (John 9:5-7).

End Times

The story of Hanukkah can be compared with end-time happenings described in the books of Revelation and Daniel. Antiochus is a type of the antichrist. Just as happened under the rule of Antiochus, Daniel prophesied in Daniel 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

The same powers promoted by Antiochus are in the world today. Worldwide immorality, and idolatry are the norm. We must come out and be separate. And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. The deceiver stands waiting to devour in this present culture (2 Cor. 6:16-17).
.
Was Jesus Conceived on Hanukkah?

Many believe that our Messiah, the “light of the world,” was conceived on the festival of lights—Hanukkah. The Bible does not specifically say the date of Jesus’ birth. It was not during the winter months because the sheep were in the pasture (Luke 2:8). A study of the time of the conception of John the Baptist reveals he was conceived about Sivan 30, the eleventh week (Luke 1:8-13, 24). Adding forty weeks, for a normal pregnancy reveals that John the Baptist was born on or about Passover (Nisan 14). Six months after John’s conception, Mary conceived Jesus (Luke 1:26-33); therefore Jesus would have been conceived six months after Sivan 30 in the month of Kislev—Hanukkah. Was the “light of the world,” conceived on the festival of lights? Starting at Hanukah, which begins on Kislev 25 and continues for eight days, and counting through the nine months of Mary’s pregnancy, one arrives at the approximate time of the birth of Jesus at the Festival of Tabernacles. (See the Tabernacle chapter.)

Randy Rhoads Birthday and Remembered 41 Years After His Tragic Death - A Biblical Perspective

Many out there in the Christian blogoshere might be wondering why I am posting on this topic? The thought that might be ringing through people's heads being, "What does Randy Rhoads have to do with biblical Christianity or prophetic events?" Well… my dear friends let me fill you in... and be a little personal.

Photo by Tom .C (see below)
Randy Rhoads who’s birthday is today; 12/6; and who was the original guitarist of Quiet Riot in the ’70s and then came to stardom and the height of notoriety as Ozzy’s… yes… Ozzy's guitarist! It is absolutely amazing how time flies. I cannot believe it has been 41 years since his March 19th plane crash! To this day I have NEVER forgotten that anniversary. There has always been something about Randy and his untimely death that still haunts me and his person that has had a very special place in my heart. I cannot explain it. I know it sounds odd and corny (especially to believers) but that is my past, what can I say? Before I came to Christ in 1992, I myself was lock stock and barrel sold into the music industry and a huge cultic follower of Ozzy Osbourne and the rock culture. You could say that I definitely sold my soul to Rock n Roll. I played guitar and played in several bands and all that knew me knew that I greatly admired Randy Rhoads. For what it is worth even my guitar was black with white pock - a – dots! Yes! I was a huge follower.

To this day I have NEVER forgotten that anniversary. There has always been something about Randy and his untimely death that still haunts me and his person that has had a very special place in my heart. I cannot explain it.

To all of us who were (me) and are into the music industry or followed it, Randy Rhoads was a guitar god and a legend. His guitar playing changed all the rules and techniques of his day and brought a more technical, professional and classical approach and style to the rock genre. Randy’s playing and genius in applying guitar scales were unique. Randy was very passionate in his playing and rooted and grounded in music theory and the list goes on. In light of all the rock’s guitarists, none has ever moved, motivated, inspired and has been more beloved by an industry than Randy Rhoads. Tragically on March 19th 1982, Randy was killed in a plane crash cutting short his life and his guitar genius. His tragic death left a GAPING VOID in the rock world of that day which has NEVER been filled. The daily countless thoughts of Randy’s fans and admirers ponder and wonder, oh… what could have been and why him? They continually ring throughout the music world even today 41 years later!! Unlike the majority of all rock guitarists in that filthy industry; arrogant, proud, haughty, narcissistic and lewd, Randy was very different.

His unique and humble personality has stood out in a narcissistic and opportunist industry and that has left a greater legacy than the genius of his wondrous guitar playing.
.
In the later months of his life, Randy became highly admired and respected not for just his playing and total professionalism, but for being the complete opposite of those in the rock industry and world. As a 14-year-old boy that is what I admired the most about Randy. I could identify with him on that. Randy was humble, kind, caring and considerate and totally not a poser. He was – as silly as this might sound to some - a role model in a godless and decadent world which kids so desperately wanted. He loved to teach guitar and loved his family very much. Many have been greatly influenced by Randy, not just for his playing but for the kind of person that he was. His unique and humble personality has stood out in a narcissistic and opportunist industry and that has left a greater legacy than the genus of his wondrous guitar playing.

Randy’s upbringing according to his brother Kelle and his beloved mother was that of a strong “Lutheran” Christian rearing and after years of rebelling against those foundational teachings from his youth, Randy’s conscience was beginning to convict him of being a part of that lifestyle.
.

It has been told by many including Randy’s mother, brother Kelle, Rudy Sarzo and Ozzy himself that Randy in the last year or so of his life wanted OUT of the godless, drug-induced rock industry to further a musical career as a classical guitarist. As told by many Randy did not drink or do drugs which is unheard of in that decadent and godless society. It is also said that Randy had become very serious in his personality and that touring with Ozzy had really changed him. I truly believe that the life in that godless industry was beginning to turn his stomach and he wanted out. I personally know (by personal experience) that at the age of 24 (not that I was ever at Randy’s level or sphere) I could not be a part of it anymore and adhere to my conservative “religious Christian” upbringing. I believe that this is what Randy might have been thinking near the end of his life. What is most mysterious and an important insight is that on the night before Rhoads' death, Sharon Osbourne stated that Randy said to her: "I don't think I want to be a rock 'n' roller anymore". Why would Randy ever make that statement at the height of his fame unless he saw what that industry was all about?  Randy’s upbringing according to his brother Kelle and his beloved mother was that of a strong “Lutheran” Christian rearing and after years of rebelling against those foundational teachings from his youth, Randy’s conscience was beginning to convict him being a part of that godless lifestyle. Randy’s Brother Kelle had shared that touring and playing with Ozzy was causing conflict in his mind due to his upbringing. Who knows? Out on the road away from friends and family, one is more open to evaluating one’s life and what it all means. The big lights of fame and the countless concerts of fans praising you after a while do not seem to satisfy one anymore (Eccl.). There comes a time in one's life that one looks outside of themselves for the TRUE meaning of our existence here in time.

What is most mysterious and an important insight is that on the night before Rhoads' death, Sharon Osbourne stated that Randy said to her: "I don't think I want to be a rock 'n' roller anymore".

One begins to think and evaluate who one is; what is the meaning of life, reflecting on one’s past and upbringing and in the fear of one’s accountability to Almighty God (Job 28:28, Prov. 1:7). All of Ozzy’s drunken, drug-induced lifestyle, demonic cross waving and anti-biblical personality had to affect Randy. It went against all that he was taught growing up and night after night of it must have finally come to ahead. It must have been then that Randy shared with Sharon that he wanted out of Rock n Roll after doing it since his early teens. Many of these private ponderings and thoughts individuals keep to themselves as they wrestle with them in their hearts ever seeking to justify them or objectively condemning them. If this was the case with Randy I do not know, it might have been. Whatever the case with Randy there was a change taking place in his life and people saw it. The rest, unfortunately, is a great mystery and that is what hooks people till this day about Randy Rhoads, the countless thoughts of the unknown and the thoughts of what would have been.

One begins to think and evaluate about whom one is; what is the meaning of life, reflecting on one’s past and upbringing and in the fear of one’s accountability to Almighty God.

The thought that I want to share about this anniversary is that no matter who we are or what we are or the manner of our living whether good or evil, in the end, we ALL will give an account to our Creator in that Last Day (Matt. 7:21-23, Rev. 20:10-15). Almighty God is perfectly RIGHTEOUS in ALL that He allows and does not allow in this fallen world (Gen. 18:25, Rom. 3:5). Whether Randy Rhoads had a saving relationship to Jesus Christ in spirit and truth at the end of his life is unknown (John 4:24, 14:6, Acts 4:12, Rev. 21:27). Tragically Randy’s followers on this 39th anniversary all will picture him to be in “heaven”, a “heaven” which is after THEIR OWN subjective fallen design and delusional reality. My dear friend’s it is IN DEATH that our ETERNAL sobering summons to stand before our ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator Almighty God to give an account for what we have done in our bodies in this fallen world is called (2 Chron. 19:7, Eccl. 3:17, 12:13-14, Heb. 9:27). We do not want to pretend with our fallen delusional reasoning that we in our own deeds are ABSOLUTELY PERFECT and RIGHTEOUS to stand before our Creator. For who is there that EVER lived (virtuous or vile) that has NOT TRANSGRESSED against Almighty God's ETERNAL PERFECT RIGHTEOUS ABSOLUTES (John 3:36, Rom. 3:23)? My dear friend, REALITY is desperately needed in this hour and day, for we will all give an account, maybe even tonight perhaps to Almighty God (Rom. 14:12, 1 Peter.4:5). We do not know when our hour will be at hand but we must be ready! ETERNITY is always before us (Job, 27:8, Prov. 10:2, 27:1, Luke 12:19-20, Rev. 20:11-15)!

Almighty God is perfectly RIGHTEOUS in ALL that He allows and does not allow in this fallen world. Whether Randy Rhoads had as saving relationship to Jesus Christ in spirit and truth at the end of his life is unknown.

Almighty God has made ETERNAL provision in His dear and precious Son Jesus Christ for the transgressions of the ENTIRE world, which includes YOU and ME (John 3:16-17, 1 Peter 3:18, 1 John 2:2, 4:10)! That is the REALITY that we as individuals most desperately need to comprehend and understand. May I my dear friend ask you this VERY sobering and pertinent question? How can YOU or I (TRANSGRESSORS of Almighty God’s PERFECT LAW) ever stand before Almighty God our Creator who is ABSOLUTELY PERFECT (RIGHTEOUS)? How can we EVER enter into His PERFECT and HOLY Heaven (Isa. 53:6, 64:6, Rom. 7:24-25, Rev. 21:27)? My dear friends, we NEVER can (Rom. 3:23). It is ABSOLUTELY HOPELESS without God's PERFECT Lamb (John 1:29, 1 Peter 3:18-19, Rev. 1:5). We are in a horrific and desperate NEED for Divine propitiation and a Savior (Rom. 7:24-25, 1 John 2:2, 4:10). My dear friends, it is when one places their absolute trust IN Jesus Christ that individuals transgressions are forgiven and removed and the RIGHTEOUSNESS of Christ – who died in our stead - is transferred unto us (Rom. 4:5, 5:8)! It is IN Christ where our RIGHTEOUSNESS is found alone not in anything we ever can do (Rom. 7:24-25, 10:2-4, Titus 3:5)!

We are in a horrific and desperate need for Divine propitiation and a Savior.

My dear friends as millions reflect on the 41st anniversary of the tragedy of Randy’s death, may we look OUTSIDE of the box of this fallen and temporal world to see the ETERNAL in light of this little temporal life here on planet earth. My dear friends, it is all about ETERNITY, will YOU be ready?

Almighty God is absolutely just in all that He does and allows. He has allowed and used Randy’s tragic death to get people’s attention and to teach us all just how brief, frail, tragic and temporal our little existence truly is here on planet earth. The question that we must ask ourselves is will we pay FULL attention? Whether Randy in the last days of his life came to know Jesus Christ as his personal Savior no one knows, but Almighty God PERFECTLY gave him every opportunity to do so, just as He is doing for all alive on planet earth at present (John 16: 8-11, Rom. 2:4). No one will EVER die without having every opportunity to hear the SAVING Gospel of Jesus Christ. For, in the END, it is OUR own personal freewill that will make our ETERNAL decision (John 1:12, 3:16-17, Acts 16:29-31). In the GRACE and MERCY of Almighty God, I have personally made my decision. Though I wrestled with Almighty God for years He wondrously in His ETERNAL love and kindness gave me some time to beat my drum and to exhaust all of my delusional thinking (Rom. 2:4). In the end, Almighty God showed me how desperately I needed Him and how gracious to me He truly was. I have received Jesus Christ and His ETERNAL saving solution for me - a transgressor and sinner - and I have NEVER looked back (John 1:12, 2 Cor. 5:17-21, Eph. 2:1-10)! How could any look back? You see I can absolutely identify with Randy's life, not that I ever lived on his level, but our lives were very similar. The lifestyle of that industry may be enjoyable for a season, but there is no way anyone can find fulfillment in it let alone serve Almighty God in it. Almighty God is calling OUT any who will hear His voice and have an ear to hear (Matt. 13:18-23, Mark 4:9). Do YOU have an ear to hear? That is the ETERNAL question at hand.

Almighty God is absolutely just in all that He does and allows. He has used Randy’s tragic death to get people’s attention and to teach us all just how brief, frail, tragic and temporal our little existence truly is here on planet earth.

Whatever choice Randy made about his ETERNITY if he could tell us anything he would communicate to all that loved him how desperately crucial it is for one to have Almighty God's ETERNAL pardon and redemption found ONLY in Jesus Christ - pro or con (John 3:16-17, 36, 11:25-26, Rev. 20:11-15, 21-22:1-5). My friends, I am sure many will misunderstand this post and be enraged. They will NOT be objective and evaluated it based on the REALITIES of Almighty God’s Word, but it is my sincere desire that at least one out of the millions will consider the WONDERFUL saving grace of Almighty God. For, in the end, that is what this life and brief existence on planet earth is all about! It's up... TO... YOU... to choose. What will it be?

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

The Treasure of the Magi - Christmas Song and Video

 


The One who is ETERNALLY MORE precious than gold! Is that true for you this Christmas my friend this Christmas season?

1. The Treasure of the Magi
(Matt. 2:1-12; 6:21; 1 Cor. 1:18-31; Col. 2:2-3)
 
Our hearts within us
Are longing for more than gold:
Treasures and riches
Which only Messiah holds.
His presence we seek,
Humbly and meek.

Through many days and nights,
We travel on to Him;
His star leads the way,
And our hearts brightly burn within.
And finally we see: 
The young Christ and King.

This One, this child:
The King of Israel;
And gifts we bring 
With joy exceedingly!

Gold for our God and King,
Frankincense to worship Thee;
Myrrh for our Lamb,
Who shall die and then rise for we.
And our hearts we bring
And lay at His feet.

With joy and praise
We glorify His Name:
Whose arm and strength
Shall bring salvation’s grace;
And now we see
The ETERNAL Son and King!

Now our hearts have found
The treasure far more than gold!




The PERFECT EGG in the Manger

Only in the Messiah of Israel is found the RIGHTEOUSNESS that we so desperately need to enter into Almighty God’s Holy and Perfect Heaven. That is what is so wonderful about the Christmas message! Almighty God provided a PERFECT body for His Son to dwell and make atonement for the sins of the world (Matt. 1:20-21, Luke 1:30-35, John 1:14, Heb. 10:5, 1 Peter 1:19)!
.
 That is what is so wonderful about the Christmas message! Almighty God provided a PERFECT body for His Son to dwell and make atonement for the sins of the world!
'
We can NEVER enter into Almighty God's holy RIGHTEOUS Heaven without the PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS of the Savior. The PERFECT LAMB for the world was born in Bethlehem of Judea 2000 years ago to be the Savior of the world! It is ONLY through God’s Son that we have forgiveness of sins and fellowship with God the Father (John 3:16-17, 1 John 4:10). It is in Christ alone that we have true son-ship and forgiveness for sins (John 1:12; Gal. 3:26) and citizenship (Eph. 2:19; Philip. 3:20) in Almighty God’s glorious RIGHTEOUS Heaven FOREVER (Rev 22:5). No wonder the angels GREATLY REJOICED with astonishment beyond all wonder at the birth of Jesus (Luke 2:10-14)!!

No wonder the angels GREATLY REJOICED with astonishment beyond all wonder!!

No Flesh (man's fallen lawless nature) shall EVER glory in His presence (Rom. 7). "But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption" (1 Cor. 1:29-30). Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior? It is ONLY through the Messiah of Israel who was born 2000 years ago that we have access into the RIGHTEOUS presence of Almighty God and gain valid citizenship into His RIGHTEOUS Heaven. My friend in these very trying days be sure that you are trusting in Almighty God’s Son as ONLY taught in the Holy Scriptures for your ETERNAL destiny depends on it (John 3:36, Acts 4:12). This Christmas - if you have not already done so- be sure that you place your trust in the Lord Jesus Christ today. You will NEVER be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

John 3:16 - Sung to Silent Night Christmas Music



For God so loved the world that He GAVE His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not ETERNALLY perish but have ETERNAL LIFE
JOHN 3:16

 

This CHRISTmas Season ALL LIVES MATTER TO JESUS, Who Was Born to Shed His RIGHTEOUS Blood for ALL - John 3:16-17!















Dear friends, the TRUE CHRISTMAS GOSPEL MESSAGE this Christmas season from Almighty God is, ALL LIVES MATTER in RIGHTEOUSNESS and sent His Son to be born and be the SAVIOR of the world (Isa. 53; John 3:16-17; 1 Rom. 5:12-21; John 4:10)! 

Jesus was born for ALL, given for ALL, died for ALL and rose for ALL in ETERNAL RIGHTEOUSNESS!

Beloved, be NOT DECEIVED by the deeds and violent actions masquerading and hiding behind flowery demonic euphemistic titles will never bring TRUE peace to a people or a nation (Deut. 4:6-8; Prov. 14:34; Psalm 11:3). Be NOT deceived! Broken families, built upon godless and lawless societal foundations inflict their own self tyranny and oppression (Gen. 6; Isa. 48:22; 57:21, Rom. 1:18-32, Gal. 6:7). ANY PEOPLE who submit themselves to lawless taskmasters of UNRIGHTEOUSNESS will ONLY EVER find themselves under OPPRESSION and TYRANNY (Acts 10:38, Heb. 2:14-16). Whether it be under one's own lawless choices or submitting one's existence under a lawless political party. The fruits of TRUE PEACE proceed ONLY from RIGHTEOUSNESS, never from UNRIGHTEOUS; whose adherence brings forth ONLY EVER chaos, rage, envy, anarchy, lawlessness, violence, anxiety, decadence, debauchery, betrayal, jealousy, unrest, murder, death, etc. (Psalm 14, Rom. 1:18-32; 3; Gal. 5:19-21;6:7; Jude 1:10).

ANY PEOPLE who submit themselves to lawless taskmasters of UNRIGHTEOUSNESS will ONLY EVER find themselves under OPPRESSION and TYRANNY!

The ASTOUNDING tragedy is that ALL unregenerate men (red, yellow, black, or white) LOVE DARKNESS and UNRIGHTEOUSNESS and seek not Almighty God their RIGHTEOUS Creator in TRUTH and LIGHT (Isa. 53:6; John 1:1-12; 3:19-21; Rom. 1:18-32)! My friends, fallen humanity ABSOLUTELY LOVES it with a big cherry on top! Six-thousand years of fallen human history has provided abounding evidence to that REALITY which none can deny. The same Greek word for "love" which is used in John 3:16 referring to Almighty God's RIGHTEOUS ETERNAL LOVE that sent His ETERNAL Son to be the Savior and Propitiation for the whole world; is used for fallen man's love for darkness, unrighteousness, and sins (John 3:16-21). Dear friends, what an absolute total contrast of two ETERNALLY different loves! One ETERNALLY RIGHTEOUS and one ETERNALLY UNRIGHTEOUS, going in two different ETERNAL directions! One bent on ETERNAL ruin, destruction, unfulfillment and unrepentance (John 3:19-20, Rev. 20:11-15); and one seeking ONLY ETERNAL glory in RIGHTEOUSNESS in joy, beauty, and Divine fulfillment (John 3:16-17; 1 Cor. 2:9, 1 John 4:10; Rev. 21; 22:1-5). One bent on following Satan in all of His rebellious lawless ways no matter how subtle they are (Matt. 25:41,46; John 8:44; Eph. 2:1-2), and one seeking and following their ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator in the LIGHT of RIGHTNESS and in PERFECT LOVE of the Holy Spirit (Psalm 37:6; 119, John 3:21; Rev. 22:1-5).

One bent on following Satan in all of His rebellious lawless ways no matter how subtle they are, and one seeking and following their ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator in the LIGHT of RIGHTNESS and in PERFECT LOVE of the Holy Spirit!

Today we have fallen men outworking their lawlessness and darkness while in vain seeking justice, equity, and peace of heart for society. They are searching for something which can never be and in vain - as the generation before them - they are seeking lawless means to bring about peaceful solutions in a more lawless generation than the one before them (Rom. 1:18-32)! This indeed is a GREAT DECEPTION and horrific EVIL upon the inhabitants of the earth (Job. 15:20-24, Eccl. 1:12, Isa. 48:22, Gal. 6:7). With their whole heart, soul, and mind they are seeking a utopian treasure that does not exist and whose vain search ends in ETERNAL ruin (Rev. 20:11-15). In their heart of hearts, they know that they are FULLY accountable to their ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator while seeking a life void of Him (Rom. 1:18-32). Cain and his godless pre-flood world system, the inhabitants of Babel; the nations, and the future 666 global states have and will all seek to beat their drum of UNRIGHTEOUSNESS and DARKNESS but will ALWAYS and ONLY ruin (Matt. 7:24-27, John 3:16,17; 36; Rom. 1;18-32; Rev. 20:11-15).

ALL lives matter to the Lord Jesus, whatever the color of their skin! He is not a respecter of persons and sees ALL men as lost. All lives matter to the Lord Jesus who shed His RIGHTEOUS blood for the sins of the whole world!

Dear friends, in light of lawless men, raging and ruling today whatever their skin color may be; we must believe Almighty God and see ALL things from His ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Throne (Isa. 6:1-5; Rev. 4-5). All have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of Almighty God and all are equal before Him in that ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS LIGHT (Isa. 64:6; John 3:16-17; Acts 17:24-32; Rom. 3:23; 1 John 4:10)! ALL lives matter to the Lord Jesus, whatever the color of their skin! He is not a respecter of persons and sees ALL men as lost (John 3:16-17). All lives matter to the Lord Jesus who shed His RIGHTEOUS blood for the sins of the whole world whatever the color of their skin (Isa. 53, John 3:16,17; 2 Cor. 5:21; 1 Peter 3:18; 1 John 4:10)! In today's insanity of euphemistic lawless trojan horses and coverups, the world more than EVER today needs to know the Gospel of Jesus Christ and receive it with their whole heart (Acts 16:28-34; Rom. 1:16; 1 Cor. 15:2-4; 2 Cor. 5:17-21; Eph. 2:1-14)! Satan is ever seeking to divide ALL men in lawlessness to keep all away from the blessed Gospel Light (2 Cor. 4:2-4; 11:13-15)!

The shed blood of Jesus Christ ends lawlessness and lawless racism! The shed blood of Jesus Christ unites ALL men whatever their skin color in RIGHTEOUS, but how much are fallen men willing to truly end racism?

The shed blood of Jesus Christ ends lawlessness and lawless racism (Rom. 3:22; 1 Cor. 7:18; 12:13, Gal. 2:28; 3:4, 26)! The shed blood of Jesus Christ unites ALL men whatever their skin color in RIGHTEOUS, but how much are fallen men willing to truly end racism? Change starts with repentance and acknowledgment of one's sin before their ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS and HOLY Creator (Prov. 1:7; Luke 18:13; John 3:19-21; 1 John 1:10)! What the lawless black and white rioters and the lawless black and white oppressors need to do to get TRUE UNITY is to repent of their transgressions and sins before their ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator and receive the ONLY Savior and Propitiation of their souls! That is where one begins to bring healing, but in today's lawless and narcissistic world, men will NOT hear Divine TRUTH and because of that, lawlessness today is EXPONENTIALLY abounding and spreading with no end in sight! For ALL things today are EXPONENTIALLY heading towards the Day of the Lord and that they better believe (2 Thess. 2:9-12; Rev. 6-19)! However, keeping it real, who will really hear and believe Almighty God; His RIGHTEOUS Word and His redeemed watchmen (Isa. 53:1; Matt. 13:14-15)? Pretty much nobody, and that is why America will fall after the Rapture and then the world will enter into the Day of the Lord which will come as a thief and WOE, WOE, WOE to that world in that Day (Isa. 24; 1 Thes. 5:1-3, 2 Thess. 2:3-12; 2 Peter 3:2-10; Rev. 6-19)!

Dear friend, do you personally know the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior?

Dear friend this Christmas season, do you personally know the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior? If not, do so today! Be believing and receiving and you will truly find what your ETERNAL TRUE calling is the Savior of the world (2 Cor. 5:17-21)!

The Kingdom of Heaven is indeed at hand!
