Christmas in August

“Then a shoot will spring from the stem of Jesse,
And a branch from his roots will bear fruit.
The Spirit of the Lord will rest on Him,
The spirit of wisdom and understanding,
The spirit of counsel and strength,
The spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.
And He will delight in the fear of the Lord,
And He will not judge by what His eyes see,
Nor make a decision by what His ears hear;
But with righteousness He will judge the poor,
And decide with fairness for the afflicted of the earth;
And He will strike the earth with the rod of His mouth,
And with the breath of His lips He will slay the wicked.
Also righteousness will be the belt about His loins,
And faithfulness the belt about His waist,” says Isaiah 11:1-5 (NASB).

Matthew 3:16-17, “And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”

4:17 (NKJV), “From that time on Jesus began to preach, Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.””

Mark 12:29-31, “And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel;

The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.”

Luke 2:11 (NIV), “Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.”

John 1:1 (NKJV), “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

“While they were still talking about this, Jesus himself stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you,”” Luke 24:36 (NIV).
