Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
I wanted to say hi and Merry Christmas to all those that had occasion to read my blog this year. Christmas is a special time of year reminding us of the birth, life and sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ.
From the book of Matthew chapter 1 verses 20-22-
“…while he thought on these things, behold the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet…”
Many citizens of the United States today have fallen away from a true faith in the Lord and God (as there are three persons of one God) and are assaulted by commercialized powers of atheism through a plethora of media. That crowding makes it sometimes difficult to consider the Lord and God in an ideal, contemplative way. The headlong rush for sensation and sales that drive society without too much though even for using rational economic political philosophy sometimes is supported by commercial franchise priesthoods unable to address contemporary empirical challenges effectively.
Even so God has pre-determined the fate of mankind and in the end someday when the age of the gentiles is fulfilled, the last day will arrive for humanity even if it has settled the galaxies of the Universe over a billion years of time.
I added a couple of remarks in parenthesis within this quote from the King James version… In the book of Mark chapter 13 verse 30 through 36 Jesus said;
“Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled” (and they were in the 1st century apocalypse) “Heaven and Earth may pass away; but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the father.
Take ye heed, watch and pray; for ye know not what the time is.
For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work and commanded the porter to watch.
Watch ye therefore; for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.
