Dear Family and Friends,
Another prophetic year is nearly completed. Our blessed Savior is fast approaching His Return … not as a Babe but as the exalted King all glorious and victorious!
Christmas is so often viewed and experienced only as a commemorative event filling the heart with nostalgic sentiments. It is much more. It graphically pictures GOD THE FATHER and His love to a sin-filled doomed world needing to receive His love in the Gift of His Son. It speaks of REDEMPTION—we who were bound by the power and chains of sin are released and free of debts which were paid to God by the only perfect Lamb, the Son of God. It declares REGENERATION—a new life in order that we “might serve Him without fear in holiness and righteousness before Him all the days of our life.” It speaks of DELIVERANCE to the Kingdom of God. It is being filled with JOY for the coming Christ as “good tidings” to the world and especially to all who believe. WORSHIP is central to the Christmas “event”—from Wise Men to shepherds, from His mother to the priest of the Temple, and from His cousin’s father to the aged saint who served God night and day with fastings and prayer.
You are loved and appreciated for who you are and the way each of you has touched our lives. If some of you have not written for some time, we would love to hear from you. Be assured of God’s love and care for you all. He still is present in your life to do today what He has done through the history of man. He is faithful! (See I John 1:1-18; Luke 1:68-79; 2:1-40.)
