 Re:

Here is a question my 4 year old son (Micah) asked my wife, with my 8 year old son listening (Kaeden) at bedtime tonight.

Micah: How are we going to give Jesus His presents for His birthday Mom?
Kaeden: Just give Him your heart, that's all He wants Micah.


Christmas is about Jesus. My children know this more then most. Merry Christmas everyone. Be blessed and praise the Lord!

 Re:

 Re:

A lot replies said with good intent....... especially ones regarding children.

When all is said and done we are all children called to become just like our Father.

Jesus could have never become what He is if what He accomplished did not reflect His Father's Will.

Jesus has made very clear what our Father's Will for us is......

John 4:23
But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Truth about our Father does not include a Christmas birth and as soon as you start saying okay to one lie you have opened the door to the father of lies.

Does anyone here think that the apostles "taught christmas"...... if so you need to spend some serious time alone with God and His Holy Word.

What the Apostles did teach about His birth other than what is already said in the Bible were the words of Jesus when He said "A body thou hast prepared me"

I do not care if you have a Christmas tree and go along with the fun about Santa Claus but when it comes to Jesus, learn the truth so that you can teach the children the truth!

Jesus was born at the end of Tabernacles that was the fruit harvest and the time when God's children went from tents to living in booths. This prophesied of the time when we would no longer wander in tents but would be gathered together in one body all in one accord with God........ but it could not happen until after Jesus gave up the perfect Body that His Father prepared for Him. By law Jesus is the only who ever qualified for heaven and He could have gone without us but instead He went through Hell to save us....... for sure the least we can do is worship in truth!

Over in another section Sister Lysa has asked the question that; if the same gospel is being preached today that was preached by Jesus and later by the Apostles, then why are we not not seeing signs and wonders that followed after them?....... she has made an excellent point because God does not change and if the truth was being taught today we would be seeing the same miracles that the first century church saw.

However because as prophesied by Daniel the truth has gone out of the sacrifice that Christmas is a perfect example of. Consequently we now have a miracle-less church.

If the truth of Jesus is missed starting at His birth how can anyone ever expect Jesus to be resurrected in them or in their children when what they believe about Him is not the truth?

So Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all but especially to those who take the time to learn the truth and teach it to their children.

Blessings

Doug

 Re:

By your reply about children, and since I am the only one posting about children to my knowledge, I am going to assume that your posting is in reference to my posting. I will reply in order of their postings. If I am wrong in assuming it was about my post, please correct me. :-)



Who said anything about lies? If you think that celebrating Christmas is a lie, then don't do it. In our home, it is all about Jesus. Our children are taught the truth about Jesus everyday, including Dec. 25th. If we choose to celebrate His birth on the 25th, so be it, it is not a sin, just as it would not be a sin to celebrate His birth on August 3rd.

Who said anything about the apostles teaching Christmas? But you know what they did teach? They taught... (edit* Paul taught*)

Romans 14:5-10, "One person esteems one day above another; another esteems every day alike. Let each be fully convinced in his own mind. He who observes the day, observes it to the Lord; and he who does not observe the day, to the Lord he does not observe it. He who eats, eats to the Lord, for he gives God thanks; and he who does not eat, to the Lord he does not eat, and gives God thanks. For none of us lives to himself, and no one dies to himself. For if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s. For to this end Christ died and rose and lived again, that He might be Lord of both the dead and the living. But why do you judge your brother? Or why do you show contempt for your brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ."


Who said anything about santa? You know what the kids beleive about santa?, that He is not real and a lie made up by the world. They know that the devil tries to lie to the world and make take the glory from Jesus.

Brother, your idea on when Jesus was born is speculation. There is no concrete evidence when He was born, but only that He WAS born.

Thank you for the blessing. We teach our children the truth along with celebrating Jesus 365 days a year including Christmas. 366 on leap years.
