QUESTION RECEIVED: (From Africa)
My question (statement) is that the word Christmas is not found in the Bible. Then why should one celebrate it when it is clearly taught in the bible that man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that comes from the mouth of God and the word Christmas does not come from the mouth of God. Why should one create and celebrate it?
The word Bible is not found in The Bible.
The word Trinity is not found in the Bible.
That game can be used to argue many points that make no sense.
Here is a news flash-God Loves his Son His one and only Son Jesus Christ.
At His Son’s baptism God said so
Matthew 3:17 English Standard Version (ESV)
“17 and behold, a voice from heaven said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.”
God is totally in love with his Son.
John 3:35 English Standard Version (ESV)
“35 The Father loves the Son and has given all things into his hand.”
The birth of God’s son was epic.
Read Luke 2 and check out the heralding angels. YES!!! This was important.
God sent his son, part of the Trinity, to live a perfect life, die as the only Son and Lamb of God, to pay for the sins of all who would repent and believe. Those who repent and turn form sin and confess Jesus Christ as Lord receive forgiveness of sins, are declared righteous before God and inherit eternal life. Have you done this?
Yes the church gave this celebration Christmas.
Celebrate it and be joyful. The angels and shepherds in Luke 2 did.
Do not be more religious than Jesus.
A Savior was born. Go and tell.

(3Things About the Christmas babe, a poem by Fletcher Law 2008-revised in 2011)
3 Things About The Christmas Babe
3 Kings presented alms to the Babe we are told
Because it is written there were 3 gifts;
Gold, Frankincense and myrrh; representing His life, death and return.
The Babe lowly meek and mild left the world on a row of
3 men were on the 3 crosses.
The 1 was the Babe and He was covered in
My sin, infirmity and desertion.
The Babe left the world with
"It Is finished".
We received 3 gifts from
His life, death and Resurrection.
Forgiveness of sin, fellowship with the Father, eternal life in Glory.
1 of the 3 on the row of crosses
went to 3 places;
death, the grave then paradise .
1 of the 3 went to
3 places with a horrible final destination;
Death, the grave and then to hell.
The 1 Babe of Christmas who was on the cross went to
3 different places;
death, a tomb and to a throne in Glory seated at the right hand of His Father.
After His Resurrection He was seen doing
3 things on Earth;
Fellowshipping, eating, forgiving.
The 1 Babe ascended into Heaven
for 3 things;
To be glorified, rule and prepare to return.
The Babe will judge us all on
Faith, Hope and Love.
The 1 Babe is part of 3 - The Father,Son and Holy Ghost.
The 1 Babe is the same in 3 ways;
Yesterday, Today and forever.
You need 3 things from this Babe - King.
Forgiveness of sins, peace with God and eternal Kingdom life.
Seek them in humbleness, desperation and with assurance He hears you.
Merry Christmas Friends.
In Christ Alone!

WHY SHOULD WE CONTINUE TO DIE WHEN CHRIST HAS ALREADY DIED FOR US?
#1- Believer’s bodies die their soul does not.
Christ died a physical death. He also was resurrected. Believers will be resurrected and live because Christ lives.
John 11:25-26 (New International Version)
25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26 and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
#2 Sin marred creation and though it is a gift our bodies and world will one day be renewed.
Romans 5:12-21 (New International Version)
12 Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned—
When believers have repented od sin and confessed Jesus as lord they receive eternal life with the father, forgiveness of sin and peace with God. Have you?
1 Corinthians 15:35-58 (New International Version)
35 But someone will ask, “How are the dead raised? With what kind of body will they come?” 36 How foolish! What you sow does not come to life unless it dies. 37 When you sow, you do not plant the body that will be, but just a seed, perhaps of wheat or of something else. 38 But God gives it a body as he has determined, and to each kind of seed he gives its own body. 39 Not all flesh is the same: People have one kind of flesh, animals have another, birds another and fish another. 40 There are also heavenly bodies and there are earthly bodies; but the splendor of the heavenly bodies is one kind, and the splendor of the earthly bodies is another. 41 The sun has one kind of splendor, the moon another and the stars another; and star differs from star in splendor.
42 So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; 43 it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; 44 it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body.
If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. 45 So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit. 46 The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual. 47 The first man was of the dust of the earth; the second man is of heaven. 48 As was the earthly man, so are those who are of the earth; and as is the heavenly man, so also are those who are of heaven. 49 And just as we have borne the image of the earthly man, so shall we bear the image of the heavenly man.
50 I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. 51 Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— 52 in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. 53 For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. 54 When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.”
55 “Where, O death, is your victory?
Where, O death, is your sting?”
56 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
58 Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

Why are Thoughts as Sinful as our Actions?
Jesus said in -
Matthew 22:37 New International Version (NIV)
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’
Have you ever heard the expression “You kiss your mother with that mouth?”
We can ask “You worship Jesus with that mind?”
When you hold back from Jesus that is wrong.
In Matthew 5 Jesus preaches on the mind.
Concerning hate and murder Jesus says-
21 “You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘You shall not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’ 22 But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister] will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister, ‘Raca,’ is answerable to the court. And anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell.
Concerning adultery and sexual sin Jesus says-
27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ 28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.
"You get less when you give less.
Worship the King with heart soul and body.
Do not skip the mind.
2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Brothers and sisters, like the warden said in the movie Cool Hand Luke
“You got to get yer mind right.”
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
