Merry Christmas to all in Christ Jesus! Oh, come let us adore Him!

“For unto us a Child is born, 
Unto us a Son is given;
 And the government will be upon His shoulder.
 And His name will be called 
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
 Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of His government and peace
 There will be no end, 
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice 
From that time forward, even forever.
 The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this” (Isaiah 9:6-7 NKJV).

“Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel” (Isaiah 7:14 NKJV).

“There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse,
And a Branch shall grow out of his roots.

The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him,
The Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
The Spirit of counsel and might, 
The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord” (Isaiah 11:1-2 NKJV).

“Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: “Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!” (Luke 2:8-14 NKJV)
These are some of the over 400 prophecies of the birth of Yeshua Ha’Mashiach, Jesus the Messiah! Most of you know that the book of Isaiah was written 700 years before the birth of Christ.

Jesus was born in Bethlehem, meaning, “The House of Sheep.” Bethlehem was where the shepherds would prepare the sacrificial sheep. It is significant that the shepherds were the first to hear of His coming. They were experts at preparing the perfect lamb for sacrifice. They went through each lamb one by one, checking for any imperfections. The sacrificial lambs had to be unblemished and were, therefore wrapped in swaddling clothes. The birth of Jesus was predicted and the swaddling cloths are very significant. Jesus was wrapped not like any other baby of the time, but as the sacrificial lambs were wrapped. Jesus was, and is the Lamb of God! He is the good shepherd!

I learn so much from my new pastor, Dom Avello. This was all in his Sunday sermon.

I guess I can't copy and paste from Facebook. If you are my friend on Facebook (if not friend me!) you can see it there. It was a wonderful evening of worship with Michael W. Smith!

Sounds like you have a good Pastor teacher sister Laurie, one that does the research which is needed to give a enlightened word of understanding. The Church needs a lot more shepherds as such! Now the important question is; did Yah bless your Christmas with Yeshua presence? Yah greatest gift of all to mankind. L Ha'shem Yeshua Mashiach shalom!

Amen, Yeshua Friend! Of course Yah blessed us and continues to bless! After last night, I couldn't sleep because I felt like I had been a part of the joyful assembly and got a taste of what Heaven will be like. In case you get the time, here is the link to the sermon. I always appreciate your wisdom and feedback. Pastor Dom even said the benediction in Hebrew!

"I hope you are having a wonderful Christmas," O yes, Yeshua always blesses me better than I deserve. Last night a Sister in Yeshua and I went to a two hour Christmas praise and worship service, with a musical band of 20 instruments, and a large number of singers/ to many to count! It was very uplifting; after we had a Christmas eve dinner together, and then called it a night.

Before we pray, let's read Ephesians 6:10-20 out loud and proclaim our rightful authority in Christ!

Barbara, how nice it was that you daughter was able to visit you for Christmas. Did you see your son, too?

1 year 8 months ago

My son did not come out He had a seasonal job with Sears but that was canceled after the shooting in the mall. But I didn't want him to drive out because weather conditions are always bad between Boise and Portland this time of year

"Let us remember the families of the Sandyhook victims in our prayers" Amen! And all of our missing brothers and sisters, which may now be suffering from over indulging in Yeshua many birthday party blessings. {[:3=b Shalom!

Barbara, that is wise that he just stay safe. Yes, Yeshua Friend, we pray that our brothers and sisters are having a great time this Christmas and that they are safe and healthy!

Yesterday I finally sent my atheist liberal aunt my witnessing letter about Jesus. I believe that God has told me that it was time. She is 92 years old so I pray that she opens her heart to the gospel. All of my cousins on that side of the family are liberal secular humanist atheists. I don't mean to sound judgmental. I love them all but they need Jesus.
