Merry Christmas 2014

 

Christmas 2014 Gazette665

There are turning points in history. In world history a turning point might be the French Revolution/Napoleonic Era. In American history: the Civil War. Through the centuries there have been defining events; events that have changed the political, social, economic, and ideology realms.

But there is one single event that forever changed the course of history.

It didn’t happen on a battlefield, in a legislative hall, or even in a church.

It happened over 2,000 years ago in a lowly, dirty stable in the crowded town of Bethlehem. A baby was born; the baby was the Savior, Redeemer, Messiah. History changed. God had come to earth.

“…’and they shall call His name Immanuel,’ which is translated, ‘God with us.’ ” Matthew 1:23 (NKJV)

“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonder, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6 (NKJV)

I hope as you celebrate Christmas you’ll reflect on Christ’s coming and see it as the defining turning point in history. The years of waiting were over; God walked on earth with man and He had come to prepare the way of salvation for all who believe with faith.

Merry Christmas!

Your Historian,

Miss Sarah
