Be it a summer’s day with the sun brightly shinning, or an icy cold dreary winters night our JESUS is the true meaning of all seasons. He is the son of the one and only true living GOD. He was sent to earth by GOD to save the souls of all mankind. ALL of mankind , not just a chosen few as how some of us humans may think. But when it rains it rains on all people, the good and the bad.
As we get closer to the day of celebration for the birth of JESUS as a man here on earth, I see some of us do get into the Christmas spirit. Kids smile more with a bounce to their step for the anticipation of the gifts they hope to get. Some people smile more and even more polite than they usually are.
We all should have this same JESUS spirit, the feeling of Christmas cheer at all times because JESUS is with us at all times. Not just because it is 23 days before Christmas day 2018.
I have noticed as the years go by that there are less and less shows on about the real meaning of Christmas. There is nothing about JESUS in any of them. There are shows on TV about a man wearing a red suit called Kris Kringle or “Saint” Nick, a reindeer with a red nose and even a green thing called the Grinch. Nothing about JESUS and salvation. The major TV networks have with even in just 10 years ago had the true meaning of Christmas for at least one movie or TV show.
This is one of the reasons why some people do not care about Christmas as they used to or should, forgetting about it. Spending all of their attention and money on the devils day called halloween. Pushing JESUS right out of their life. I have heard more than once people say they have spent all of their money on halloween and have nothing left for Christmas ,the celebration of our LORD JESUS. And will say that Christmas is too commercialized. But halloween is not?
The devil has tricked many people to do the very same thing, spend all of your energy on halloween so that you would be distracted from honoring JESUS. This is not a good way to be, for we all do need to know who comes first in all we do.
- GOD the FATHER and creator of all heaven and earth comes first in all we do.
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
King James Version (KJV)
- GOD the FATHER sent HIS only begotten son JESUS here on earth to save our souls.
John 3:16 King James Version (KJV)
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
- JESUS could have saved his self and not go through the torture and sacrifice that he lovingly gave for all of mankind.
50And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come? Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus, and took him. 51And, behold, one of them which were with Jesus stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest’s, and smote off his ear. 52Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword. 53Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels? 54But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be? 55In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes, Are ye come out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye laid no hold on me. 56But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled.
King James Version (KJV)
See, reading the word of GOD is comforting, and will give to those who seek after HIM the love, guidance , and protection we need. Once you read the scriptures you will see how much our GOD in heaven and all of the earth loves us so!
GOD sent HIS only begotten son JESUS to earth to save all of us from the lies that the devil has given to ALL mankind. Starting from the first two people to walk the earth Adam and Eve.
Let not all that our JESUS has gone through be in vain, show the gratitude all year, all day and all times. JESUS is my savior and yours. Read what JESUS has gone through in the Bible for all of us mankind.
1 Peter 3:18
“For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:”
King James Version (KJV)
Luke 22:63-23:12 New King James Version (NKJV)
Jesus Mocked and Beaten
63 Now the men who held Jesus mocked Him and beat Him. 64 And having blindfolded Him, they struck Him on the face and asked Him, saying, “Prophesy! Who is the one who struck You?” 65 And many other things they blasphemously spoke against Him.
Jesus Faces the Sanhedrin
66 As soon as it was day, the elders of the people, both chief priests and scribes, came together and led Him into their council, saying, 67 “If You are the Christ, tell us.”
But He said to them, “If I tell you, you will by no means believe. 68 And if I also ask you, you will by no means answer Me or let Me go.69 Hereafter the Son of Man will sit on the right hand of the power of God.”
70 Then they all said, “Are You then the Son of God?”
So He said to them, “You rightly say that I am.”
71 And they said, “What further testimony do we need? For we have heard it ourselves from His own mouth.”
Jesus Handed Over to Pontius Pilate
23 Then the whole multitude of them arose and led Him to Pilate. 2 And they began to accuse Him, saying, “We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to pay taxes to Caesar, saying that He Himself is Christ, a King.”
3 Then Pilate asked Him, saying, “Are You the King of the Jews?”
He answered him and said, “It is as you say.”
4 So Pilate said to the chief priests and the crowd, “I find no fault in this Man.”
5 But they were the more fierce, saying, “He stirs up the people, teaching throughout all Judea, beginning from Galilee to this place.”
Jesus Faces Herod
6 When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked if the Man were a Galilean. 7 And as soon as he knew that He belonged to Herod’s jurisdiction, he sent Him to Herod, who was also in Jerusalem at that time. 8 Now when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceedingly glad; for he had desired for a long time to see Him, because he had heard many things about Him, and he hoped to see some miracle done by Him. 9 Then he questioned Him with many words, but He answered him nothing. 10 And the chief priests and scribes stood and vehemently accused Him. 11 Then Herod, with his men of war, treated Him with contempt and mocked Him, arrayed Him in a gorgeous robe, and sent Him back to Pilate. 12 That very day Pilate and Herod became friends with each other, for previously they had been at enmity with each other.
After GOD, who else will love us this much, to go through this much and give up his life for all of mankind?
I don’t know of anyone who could do exactly what our JESUS has done. JESUS is a perfect example as how to live on earth and the savior of all mankind. Let us always respect JESUS for what HE did every single season, month, day, hour and second of our lives.
May a blessing be on all who read this blog, and who share and pass it forward to the next person to be blessed with the reading of GOD’s word with in the blog.
