"Jesus wasn't born into the world so that the world could go shopping" -- Pastor Greg Laurie

"
Jesus our Savior has come for to die.
For poor ornery creatures like you and like I ....
to save us all from Satan's power when we were gone astray;
and man will live forever more because of Christmas Day
"

"
The unique circumstances pertaining to the only existence of complex life on our planet earth ( the Rare Earth concept ) places earth at the heart of a singular Eternal Plan, too mathematically exacting to be "coincidental".
We are the only beings in all of the known and unknown Universe to mingle our blood with the actual Creator of all matter ( seen and unseen ). That blood entered the human race at the Incarnation. That blood fulfilled God's Redemptive plan on the Cross at Calvary. And that glorified blood and body ever lives to make intercession for us."
"But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name" -- John 1: 12
His name is Emmanuel .. God with us ... Jesus.

Bethlehem's Legacy -- Hal Lindsey
"But the most glorious mystery of Bethlehem is that it is the place where God stepped out of eternity
and became a man. He did this so He could live a sinless life and thus qualify to die for the sins of all men.
The Son of God said to God the Father at the time of His birth,
"Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but a body you prepared for Me ...
I have come to do Your will, O God" (Hebrews 10:5).
In this body, Jesus willingly died in our place in order to purchase a complete pardon for our sins.
He paid our penalty. "

IF YOU LOOK FOR ME

If you look for me at Christmas
you won't need a special star
I'm no longer in Bethlehem
I'm right there where you are.

You may not be aware of Me
amid the celebrations
You'll have to look beyond the stores
and all the decorations.

But if you take a moment
from your list of things to do
and listen to your heart, you'll find
I'm waiting there for you.

You're the one I want to be with,
you're the reason that I came,
and you'll find Me in the stillness
as I'm whispering your name.

Love, Jesus

EID
What does the Moslem festival of Eid celebrate ? EID refers to the erroneous "sacrifice" of Ishmael on Mt. Moriah.
That is not a historical fact, nor is it verified in the Bible. It is made up. It was not Ishmael that was to be offered,
but
ISAAC, as the Bible states.
Galatians 4:28
All religions do not worship the same God.
Allah is the moon-god, not the Living God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and David .
Jesus is both God and man. Jesus is Almighty God, the Everlasting Father, and our soon coming Messiah.
Allah had no son. ( that died for me )
