“Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. 10 Then the angel said to them,
‘Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. 11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.’
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:
14 “Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”
“For with God nothing will be impossible.” Luke 1:37
“A light to bring revelation to the Gentiles, and the glory of Your people Israel.” Luke 2:32
“And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.” Matthew 1:21
“I am the First and the Last” Revelation 22:13
“Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy” Revelation 19:10b
Jesus is the ministry of reconciliation:
“Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.” 2 Corinthians 5:18-19
We’re so in wonder about Jesus’ birth because;
- Who He is,
- Why He came down to earth,
- How He saves us,
- How He loves us.
Many blessings to you all to know Jesus fully!
Praise God! Glory, blessings, honor, and power to You forever, Lord God
2 Peter 1:20-21, says: “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God (and women) spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.”
My friend Lisa prophesied over me 5 years ago, that I’d be a writer. But in my own imagination, it hasn’t worked out what I weakly thought. Moreover, all the joy, divine appointments & encouraging others I could not have guessed God would provide.
Growth, deeper into Your word, O Lord!
“I called upon the Lord in distress: the Lord answered me, and set me in a large place.” (Psalm 118:5)

“It is of the Lord‘s mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is Your faithfulness. The Lord is my portion, says my soul; therefore will I hope in Him. The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeks Him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord.” (Lamentations 3:22-26)
Lord Jesus, thank You for Your answers, Your example of living, Your sacrifice and Your great love.
