And God said, "Let there be light," and there was Light.
12 Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
How long ago did Father God start telling us of His Son, Jesus?
The scepter shall not depart from Judah,
nor the ruler's staff from between his feet,
until tribute comes to him;
and to him shall be the obedience of the peoples.
Moses was told about Jesus.
The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your brothers—it is to him you shall listen—
David and Nathan spoke of Jesus -
2 Samuel 7:12-16
When your days are fulfilled and you lie down with your fathers, I will raise up your offspring after you, who shall come from your body, and I will establish his kingdom.
13 He shall build a house for my name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. 14 I will be to him a father, and he shall be to me a son. When he commits iniquity, I will discipline him with the rod of men, with the stripes of the sons of men, 15 but my steadfast love will not depart from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away from before you.
16 And your house and your kingdom shall be made sure forever before me. Your throne shall be established forever.
Isaiah certainly knew of Jesus, God's Son.
Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel [God with us].
Matthew walked with Jesus in awe and gave Him a party.
She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus [God saves], for he will save his people from their sins.”
We have a response to Jesus the Lord.
Christmas is sometimes down played as being for children.
And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.
So the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children.
Father GOD, Bless us and keep us to prepare a place in us each day for Your Joy.
Open our hearts, let the delight of our thoughts be You
and keep us in Your Grace.
We Thank You, Jesus Always for those we Love, the People You have given and Your Goodness.
Amen and Merry Christmas!
