HAVING A GLORIOUS SEASON AT CHRISTMAS




















Christmas: When God left Eternity and Invaded Earth in Human Form


One of my favorite Christmas verse is from Matthew 1:23 which quotes the Old Testament prophecy that says, "He shall be called Immanuel, God with us." Yes, God came to visit the earth. That's an awesome sentence because there are people who do not believe there is a God. And there are others who have a belief in a god that I could never believe in. I would be an atheist if I were taught to believe that God is what some people believe. Then there are the agnostics who don't know what they believe. So when you get down to the bottom line, you have to start with the word "IF," because it takes faith to believe. And it takes faith to say, "If there is a God, can you imagine an eternal, invisible, intelligent, SOMEBODY coming into a material form?"

SINGLE GREATEST EVENT IN TIME OF HUMAN HISTORY?
How would God step into time? How would God enter mankind’s world? Isaiah 7:14
