Stir up your power, O Lord, and come. Take away the hindrance of our sins and make us ready for the celebration of your birth, that we may receive you in joy and serve you always; for you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, now and forever.
It is what it is… MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
It isn’t “fake” news; HOWEVER, it is true news. It is the true Christmas Story… These scriptures are found in the New Testament of our Holy Bible. Specifically, in the Holy Gospel (good news) of the book of Matthew…
Christ Born of Mary
18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. 19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not wanting to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly. 20 But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. 21 And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”
22 So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: 23 “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”
24 Then Joseph, being aroused from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and took to him his wife, 25 and did not know her till she had brought forth her firstborn Son. And he called His name Jesus.
AWESOME. Truly AWESOME…
Why do some Christians try to call Jesus brother???
[WHEN PLAYING THAT GAME…
Move Monkey with arrows… (GET TO THE GYM)…
MOVE BIBLE WITH MOUSE AND GET THOSE WIZARDS!!!]
I understand that the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ made us all children of God… BUT, wasn’t Jesus transfigured (Matthew 17:1-3)… I am human… I won’t be as Holy and perfect as Jesus Christ is now… I am not a god, why call Jesus Christ as my equal??? I am cool with calling Saul/Paul my brother; HOWEVER, Jesus Christ is Lord… my Lord God is AWESOME… just AWESOME… I can never be as Holy as Him on this earth… I can try to… I think I will… 🙂
I want to share with you one of my favorite PSALMs written by King David (David vs. Goliath) found in the Old Testament of our Holy Bible.
I LOVE THE WORD OF THE LORD…
*Please visit this post throughout your week* I will be adding personal testimonies and scriptures to this post to encourage you on your walk with Christ… 🙂

THANK YOU GOD FOR TODAY!!!
I went to get my car inspected in Mechanicsburg, worked out in Hummelstown, went to the Historical Society in Hershey, and working tonight in Harrisburg… GOOD THING MY CAR IS GOOD TO GO… 🙂
I was reading the Holy Gospel this morning… The Holy Gospel is a group of books written in the New Testament of our Holy Bible by Jesus’s disciples… THEY WERE BLESSED TO BE WITH OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST WHEN HE WAS IN HUMAN FORM ON EARTH… I would like to share what I was reading… (it was a teaching by our Lord Jesus Christ) May I share???
24 “A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master.25 It is enough for a disciple that he be like his teacher, and a servant like his master. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more will they call those of his household! 26 Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.
Jesus Teaches the Fear of God
27 “Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops. 28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. 30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.
Confess Christ Before Men
32 “Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. 33 But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.
WHY DO MEN CALL GOD BROTHER??? I understand, calling the the humans filled with the Holy Spirit brother and sisters… why do they call YOU brother???
LET’s GO2 THE DENTIST AND THEN WORK…
I AM NOT FEELING THAT GOOD TODAY… however, i am still going…
