A Christmas Message in Scripture

The Early Promise

And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life.

And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her Seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise His heel.

—Genesis 3:14-15 KJV

The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.

"Thou hast multiplied the nation, and not increased the joy: they joy before Thee according to the joy in harvest, and as men rejoice when they divide the spoil.
“Is it not that, in the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birth-day of the Saviour?” - John Quincy Adams

“There would be no America if there had not first been a Christmas.” - Rosalie Slater

Jeg Er Saa Glade Hver Julekveld

Norse Christmas Carol

I am so glad each Christmas Eve,
The night of Jesus' Birth!
Then like the sun the Star shone forth,
And angels sang on earth.

The little Child of Bethlehem,
He was a king indeed;
For He came forth from heaven above
To help a world in need.

He dwells again in heaven's realm,
The Son of God today;
And still He loves His little ones
And helps them when they pray.

I am so glad each Christmas Eve,
His praises then I sing.
He opens then for ev'ry child
The palace of the King.

When mother trims the Christmas tree
That fills the room with light,
She tells me of that wondrous Star
That made the whole world bright.

She says the Star is shining still
And never will grow dim,
And if it shines upon my way
It leads me up to Him.

And so I love each Christmas eve,
And I love Jesus too;
And that He loves me ev'ry day
I know so well is true.

Composed by Peder Knudsen 1859

Neither an apologetic nor a polemic, he corrects much misinterpretation and misunderstanding of Freemasonry.

Led By the Carpenter

Led by the Carpenter: Finding God's Purpose for Your Life
by Dr. D. James Kennedy

As Christians, we know that we are to "walk the walk" that Christ walked, making everyday decisions as God would have us do. Yet few Christians take the time to explore God's will in all aspects of their lives and set goals that reflect a biblical approach in everything they do and say.

Dr. Kennedy uses biblical principles forged in his own life and in the life of the Church to highlight practical ways for believers to go deeper in their spiritual walk and set long-term goals based on God's will. Learn to partner with Christ and set goals that will affect the way you interact with family, friends, classmates, church, community and colleagues.

Led By the CarpenterBattlestrip Galactica E-Book
The Fight for Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Religion & Freedom of the Press in the New Millennium
by Joe King

These two authors take a close look at how God Directed Here in hundreds of examples of illustrated counterpoint is Joe King's ultimate editorial testimony—Battlestrip Galactica—an installment in the A.D.=Anno Domini—The Cure For The Common Era series.
For the mature, thoughtful Christian with a sense of humor, Battlestrip Galactica, by Pulitzer nominee Joe King, thoroughly documents the systematic anti-Christianity of today's editorial cartooning. Herein lies an opportunity to help redeem another sector of culture through media education, while enjoying Joe King's unique brand of graphic humor.
For the past decade, The Funny Paperz by Joe King has stood in the gap of newspaper journalism, a lone voice in the cartoon wilderness. This year the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists (AAEC) erased the entire archive of his work from the national servers in a futile attempt to silence his ongoing statements of faith.
