LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “... Yes, and from ancient days I am He. No one can deliver out of my hand. When I act, who can reverse it?’…” (Isaiah 43:13, the Holy Bible).

CHRISTMAS MYSTERY FROM THE FATHER OF JOHN THE BAPTIST: Did you know that in the story about the first-ever Christmas, at the time of the birth of Jesus on earth even if He is God and Savior, and is God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, there is a pronouncement coming from Zechariah—the father of John the Baptist—which proves that Jesus is God and Savior?

This is what Zechariah said about Jesus: “…`Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, because he has come to his people and redeemed them. He has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David (as he said through his holy prophets of long ago)’…”

To serious students delving into the commands of God, they know that there is no other Savior  but God. God Himself said this, in Isaiah 43:10-11, in this manner: “…`Before me no god was formed,  nor will there be one after me.  I, even I, am the Lord, and apart from me there is no savior…”

THE TRUE REASON WHY JESUS CAME DURING THE FIRST CHRISTMAS: To those who served God in earlier times, they fully knew who Jesus is. They knew that Jesus is God and Savior, who is God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. They knew that Jesus is the God who came down to earth from heaven in the form of man, with flesh and blood.

They knew that Jesus is the “baby boy” who was conceived by Mary, the Virgin, just as it was proclaimed a thousand years even before this took place. They knew that Jesus was in reality the “Mighty God, Everlasting Father”, even if He appared to be a helpless baby boy.

And they knew the reason why God Himself came down to earth from heaven: “… (as he said through his holy prophets of long ago),  (He will give) salvation from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us— to show mercy to our ancestors and to remember his holy covenant…”

-ooo-

ARE WE SERVING GOD AS WE CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS 2017? And why would God want to save us from our enemies? This is the reason: “… (This was) the oath he swore to our father Abraham:  to rescue us from the hand of our enemies, and to enable us to serve him without fea in holiness and righteousness before him all our days…”

In other words, He wanted us to serve Him without fear, and to live a life of righteousness and holiness before Him all the days of our lives. Put differently, we must use our lives to fulfill the work He has set out for believers. What is this work?

This work is to proclaim and save souls, based on the truth that Jesus is God and Savior, and is God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. It is my fervent prayer that dor Christmas 2017, we will find ourselves truly serving Jesus. Thank God in the Name of Jesus, Amen.
