ProLifeCorner- The world is happy to let Jesus Christ be a baby in a manger, but not willing to let Him be the sovereign King and Lord that He is. Yet that is the central truth of the Christmas story: the Child of Christmas is God! Lots of people who would otherwise gladly embrace Jesus as Messiah, don’t want Him to be God.
• They will welcome Him as a son of David, but not as the Son of God.
• They don’t mind celebrating the birth of a baby, but they don’t want to hear about the Lord of lords.
• They sing of His nativity, but brazenly reject His authority.
• They adore Him as an infant, but will not pay homage to Him as the God-man.
• They can tolerate the trappings of Christmas, a manger, shepherds, wise men, Joseph and Mary, but they cannot bear the advent of God in human flesh.
• Consequently the world ignores the core of all Christmas truth.
• Instead of honoring Jesus at Christmas, they are actually mocking Him. Continue reading
It has come to my attention that many of you are upset that folks are taking My name out of the season. How I personally feel about this celebration can be understood by those of you who have been blessed with children of your own. I don’t care what you call the day. If you want to celebrate My birth, just get along and love one another.
If it bothers you that your home town does not allow a Nativity scene, then just get rid of a couple of Santas and snowmen and put in a small Nativity scene on your front lawn. If all My followers did that, there wouldn’t be any need for such a scene on the town square because there would be many of them all around town.
Stop worrying that people are calling the tree a holiday tree, instead of a Christmas tree. It is I who make all trees. You can remember Me anytime you see any tree. Decorate a grape vine if you wish: I actually spoke of that once in a teaching, explaining who 1 am in relation to you and what each of our tasks are. If you have forgotten that one, look up John l5:l-8.
If you want to give Me a present in remembrance of My birth, here is my wish list. Continue reading
Jesus is the Reason for the Season He is on His way- let us rejoice and be glad in the Lord.
ProLifeCorner- We “always feel it an obligation to remind people about the reason for the season of Advent and Christmas. Do not get caught up too much in the presents, sales gimmicks, pressures to have to have the perfect Christmas. Jesus gave us the greatest present we could ever have Received – his very self. Because God became man, we can know that He wants to be with us all the time. How much time do you spend with Him? Could you spend more time with Him this season?” Continue reading
ProLifeCorner.com- Easter 2014- Jesus’ Resurrection Is Real! “If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith “1 Corinthian 15:13-14. The same way that the world has secularized and commercialized our Christmas celebration, so it is with the Christian proclamation of the risen Jesus. The world has upstaged this solemn, holy and glorious celebration with the end of college basketball, the beginning of professional baseball, or by the Easter bunny, marshmallow chicks, or chocolate rabbits.

Beautiful New Lyrics For An Old Christmas Carol
ProLifeCorner.com- By Fr. Christopher G. Phillips- No crib for his bed… One of my very earliest Christmas memories was learning to sing “Away in a manger” for a pageant. I must have been very young indeed, because I can remember it hadn’t been too long before then that I had stopped sleeping in a crib, and I had the thought that we could probably give the one I had been using to the baby Jesus. It was a charitable thought which never worked out, but I’ve always loved the lullaby that inspired it. Continue reading
