Salvation Has Appeared To All Men



And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.  An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.  But the angel said to them, 'Do not be afraid.  I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.  Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.  This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.'

Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

'Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.'

When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, 'Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.'

So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger.  When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.  But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.  The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.
- Luke 2:8-20

  4. I celebrate not the day of His Birth, but the fact He was Born! Thank you Abba Father, for sending Your Son to pay the debt of sin we could never pay on our own. We Praise your Holy Name! Blessings and Peace Upon You and Yours! Sherry

    1. Thank you for this article. I was reminded of something I read awhile back about the shepherds being in service of the temple and in helping in the birth of firstborn male lambs to choose those that would be spotless. This took place in Bethlehem which means House of Bread. The birthing room was called Migdal Eder, in the Tower of the Flock I think and the manger was hewn in the rock for the newly born lamb. So, Christ, the sacrificial sinless lamb was born here. The shepherds knew where to look for the new born King after the angels appeared to them. People could purchase one of these lambs to sacrifice in the temple. So, we were purchased by the blood of the lamb Jesus Christ. Isn't this just beautiful.

  5. The best articles about "Christmas" are currently to be found on the secular ZEROHEDGE website and clearly show how obviously these holidays DON'T (!!) have anything to do with Jesus Christ (and NEVER really had) but rather with money / economy or politics (neither can indeed be combined with God = Matthew 6:24 / John 18:36):

    How can it be ever claimed as "Christianization" when red Santa costumes and fir trees become a global hype among nations that historically even never before were touched by celebrating these traditions? It seems to me like a spreading of global 'SaTaN cancer' (just change the letters from 'SaNTa') that has now especially exploded all over in 2017. It's just so much obvious now, how sad that even Christians don't understand. Must be related to endtimes. MARANATHA, come quickly LORD Jesus!

  6. Thank you Dear God in Heaven for the sending your only Son to be born of the Virgin Mary and die for our sins so that through Faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and the gift of Grace we may one day enter Your Kingdom of Heaven. Please God, accept our humble celebration of the birth of your Son, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, understanding that we don't know the true day of His birth, but our need to celebrate the most glorious day in the history of man is our intention. Glory to God in the Highest and peace on earth and goodwill towards men. Through your Son Jesus Christ we give You thanks and praise. May we one day be granted the honor and privilege of bowing down at the feet of our Lord and Savior. Amen.
