Default Marry CHRISTmas

Hi everyone,

While we know that Jesus Christ our Savior Messiah was not born on December 25th, thank God He is not legalistic or religious ! In this chaotic and sin laden world that is continuously becoming darker, it is the one eve/day of the year that believers commemorate and celebrate our DEAR SAVIOR'S BIRTH! All except for the LC and JW's.

Halleluiah that God sent His Word, Jesus to us. And He was born as a baby. Who cannot ADORE a BABY? He was fully HUMAN. He was breast fed by Mary and peed and pooped. Something we don't think about. The only reason I bring it up is for us to remember our Almighty God was a real Baby Boy at one time. He cooed and smiled and cried. He was comforted by His mother Mary and Joseph His earthly father.

I love our Lord Jesus. We all do.

This year GOD put a special place in my heart for Christmas EVE. Please know it is has always been just another day since becoming a Christian through the LC. The LC took away our JOY of commemorating our Savior's FIRST coming.

In some ways, I was relieved not to be obligated to the commercialism of it all. I don't have a family of my own (husband, kids) but I have my pets and good friends that are real 'family', baggage, drama and all. So I am Thankful I am not lonely. Even if I were, I know I have a Great Best Friend and the Love of my soul in me and with me everywhere I go.

Moving on.
The Holy Spirit changed my perspective about Christmas a couple of weeks ago. Not that I am 'decking the halls'. Nothing outwardly.

It began July 28, 2013 in the wee hours of the night with a vision/dream as I was sleeping. All I saw was 4 words: Away in a manger. I prayed and asked the Lord to show me why I saw those words. I did not receive any revelation or insight to speak of.

Then 2 months ago, I had another dream. I was riding a bike on a country road as fast as I could to a small town. Upon arriving, I secured my bike and walked around looking for something or someone. Not sure what I was looking for. After looking around, I returned to my bike only to find it gone. It had disappeared. I had no means of getting around now or go back to where I came from. Just then I ran into someone who invited me to their home and as I walked in I saw 2 Christmas trees. There was also a room full of people. I supposed they were all believers as there were 2 people I recognized. Both from the LC. I don't know why I dreamed of them because I have not seen either of them in decades! End of the dream.

But that dream was very insightful.

Moving on.
Me and some friends have been going over 2 Kings 1-2. Elijah and Elisha are walking together when a Whirlwind (tornado - twister) came with a chariot of horses that seemed like they were on fire.

I also happened to listen to a message called 'The meaning of RED in Christmas'. It was all about the Blood of Jesus from Gen - Rev. Around the same, I watched a you tube where the brother in Christ shared a dream he had in which he saw a red sleigh. The dream was not actually about Christmas though. It was a rapture dream. For anyone interested, here it is:

Suddenly I had all kinds of revelations. Remember Elijah went up on a chariot? Quite similar to a sleigh don't you think?
Now.. for as long as I can remember, Santa Clause was 'Satan' in disguise. You've all heard the stories.
The unbelievers celebrate Santa Clause and believers celebrate both Jesus' Birth and Santa Clause except for the LC and Jehovah Witnesses LOL.

After considering 2 Kings ch 2, my dreams and Mark's dream in the you tube, I recalled how Jesus is described in Revelation 1:13-14. Hair as WHITE AS SNOW and His Robe to His Feet.

I could interpret the dreams, the insights, the revelation but I will leave you with this thought about the 2 Christmas trees. Jesus came into this world as a baby Lamb of God. He is returning as a LION from the Tribe of Judah. By all accounts He was born in the midnight hour for the shepherd boys and the Wise men followed a STAR...actually a comet which is seen at night. Why do I think it was a comet? The Christmas song, Do you see what I see? Says:A star, a STAR dancing in the night with a TAIL as big as a kite. With a TAIL as big as a kite . A comet has a tail.

God's Promise is the KING is coming again. Matthew 25:6 tells us at midnight there was a shout, ‘Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’

Ha-ha.. Jesus was born at midnight and He is coming at midnight. Not saying it's tonight. Plus it is also possible the significance of midnight means the darkness of this evil age.

In any case,
God has given me a new perspective for this Blessed Season.

MARRY CHRISTmas everyone !! Marry CHRIST mas.
