    Was Jesus Born on December 25th?

    The Christmas season is a wonderful time of year for those who love Jesus and the fact that He came to earth to offer His life for all of us. Most people do not know the true facts concerning the arrival of Jesus to earth because the story of Jesus birth has been changed by the traditions of men over the course of years.

    In this brief study we will explore the facts concerning Jesus birth and look at the evidence from a Biblical perspective.

    The gospel of Luke gives us the best account of Jesus birth, so we will start here and move through the other verses of scripture that deal with the event of Jesus birth.

    Luke 2:8-20 “Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night.”

    This verse in the book of Luke reveals information that may ruin your current view of Christmas. We learn from just this single verse that Jesus was not born during the winter month of December. In just a few minutes you will see why.

  • America: Want God’s Blessing? Be a Blessing to God

    America: Want God’s Blessing? Be a Blessing to God

    I watched with great interest the president’s speech this morning on rebuilding the economic prosperity of America. It was a great and inspiring speech and contained many important and relevant facts that inspired me and is the reason that I am writing this post.

    The key element of President Obama’s speech that was missing was the fact that America has been blessed by God in her past history because the citizens of this great land have honored and worshipped the God of the Bible.

    The founders of our nation stated that it was impossible that this land could have come into existence if God had not willed it to be. The reason for our past prosperity and global standing as the most wealthy and powerful nation on the earth is because as a people, we have in the past honored God.

    “It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor.” - George Washington

  • Signs of the Last Days: “Increase in Lawlessness”

    Signs of the Last Days: “Increase in Lawlessness”

    For those who watch the news daily for events that continue to indicate the soon arrival of Jesus Christ, this kind of behavior immediately captures our attention. The new testament is filled with verses of scripture warning of a marked increase in “lawlessness” as we approach the return of Jesus.

    Matthew 24:3 Now as Jesus sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”

    Matthew 24:12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.

    “Lawlessness” is defined as: “people who are not governed by or obedient to laws.”

    In the years immediately preceding the destruction of the earth in the days of Noah, lawlessness was increasing until it reached a pinnacle. At Sodom and Gomorrah, the behavior of the people in the community became so vile and evil in the lawlessness of those cities, that God destroyed everyone who lived there, except Lot and his family.

  • Being a Christian at NASA Will Cost You Your Job

    Being a Christian at NASA Will Cost You Your Job

    Since it’s inception, the Theory of Evolution has remained just that “A Theory”. It has never been proven by evidence that links lower primates to human beings, yet it is used in all of our schools and accepted widely by most of the world’s secular intellectuals, as fact.

    Now, if you subscribe to any other theory for the origin of the Universe and the fact of man’s existence, you are labeled ignorant, uninformed and naive .

    At the United States NASA headquarters, if you are not a believer in the religion of evolution, you cannot belong to their church.

    An evangelical Christian, David Coppedge, has been fired from his job of 15 years for believing in God and the theory that the Universe and man were both created by an infinite intelligent being.

    The following article is from the Associated Press. For a Christian, this firing is both shocking and frightening. That a man or woman could lose their career now for believing in God and expressing that faith while at work, is a travesty of every law of freedom the US. has been founded upon.

  • Stand Up For Jesus, And Be Used By Him

    Stand Up For Jesus, And Be Used By Him

    I just read an amazing article on Fox News about Denver Bronco’s Quarterback Tim Tebow. His desire to be visibly outspoken for Jesus has continually allowed the Lord to use him to be a witness for the truth of Jesus message to the world. It just goes to show that if we take a step of courage and begin to really live our lives for Jesus by letting the people know who we come into contact with everyday about Jesus, He will use us to bring Glory to His name.

    The Lord is coming for all of us soon, the signs of his appearing are all around us. The opportunities to tell people about Jesus are also all around us every day. I pray that we might all be more bold to live our lives like we actually believe the Bible is true and that Jesus is the Savior of the world…

    Hope this article blesses and inspires you as much as it did me. “May you receive much glory Jesus from each one of our lives…”

  • The Return of Jesus and the Acceptance of Sin

    The Return of Jesus and the Acceptance of Sin

    As we approach the return of Jesus for His church, world-wide the acceptance of sin is increasing dramatically. Young people who claim that they love Jesus, yet live together in the same home without being married to each other. Men and women who claim to be Christians, yet live in a homosexual or lesbian relationship.

    Rather than offend those who live in these lifestyles, Christians say nothing, hiding behind the phrase “I just love them and accept them the way they are…”

    Jesus said that when we accept the sin of a confessing follower of him and say nothing about it, that he will hold us accountable for our indecisiveness.

  • Tony Blair Often Read His Bible in Making Decisions

    Tony Blair Often Read His Bible in Making Decisions

    The Prime Minister of Britain often spent the night reading his Bible before making the really big decisions during his term in office.

    Alastair Campbell was the press secretary for Tony Blair during his term in office. He recorded in his diaries that on the night before the bombing of Iraq, Tony Blair had second thoughts after reading the story of King Herod and John the Baptist in the New Testament.

    In the story of John the Baptist, Herod was unduly influenced by others in making the decision to execute John the Baptist. In the last part of Mark chapter 6: verse 26 the scripture records that “The King was exceedingly sorry (For his decision) yet because of the oaths (He went ahead and carried out the execution).

  • The Importance of the Word of God

    The Importance of the Word of God

    Today, the importance of the Word of God has become greatly diminished. No longer do men look for guidance and direction for their lives from the Bible. They turn instead to the words of men and what is socially acceptable.

    When Jesus began His public ministry, the Bible describes the fact that He went into the wilderness where He fasted for a period of 40 days. When Jesus had reached the place of intense hunger, that is when satan came to tempt Him. It is always when we are at a place of weakness that the enemy comes to bring temptation. When you are tired or have overworked. When you are hungry or discouraged. The enemy studies us and he knows when we have arrived at a place of weakness so that his efforts will be the most effective.

    How many times have you been at a place of being so tired or hungry when something happened that was impossible to deal with in your fatigue or hunger? You reacted in a wrong way, and later regretted your words or actions.

    Matthew 4:1-4 “Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry. Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.” But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ ”

    This is really an incredible verse when you consider that Jesus is described by the Bible as “The Logos”. The Logos is the Living Word of God in the Greek Language. When satan comes to tempt Jesus in the midst of His intense hunger, what does the “Logos” tell satan? That man does not live by obtaining sustenance from food only, but he lives by every one of the words of God.

    U.K. to Remove Porn From the Internet

    U.K. to Remove Porn From the Internet

    THE UK Government is to combat the early sexualization of children by blocking internet pornography unless parents request it, it was revealed today.

    The move is intended to ensure that children are not exposed to sex as a routine by-product of the internet. It follows warnings about the hidden damage being done to children by sex sites.

    The biggest broadband providers, including BT, Virgin Media and TalkTalk, are being called to a meeting next month by Ed Vaizey, the communications minister, and will be asked to change how pornography gets into homes.

    Instead of using parental controls to stop access to pornography - so-called “opting out” - the tap will be turned off at source. Adults will then have to “opt in.” The new initiative is in advance of the imminent convergence of the internet and television on one large screen in the living room.

    It follows the success of an operation by most British internet service providers (ISPs) to prevent people inadvertently viewing child porn websites. Ministers want companies to use similar technology to shut out adult pornography from children. Pornography sites will be blocked at source unless people specifically ask to view them.

    Narnia 3 Seeks to Appeal to Non-Christians

    Narnia 3 Seeks to Appeal to Non-Christians

    LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - The studios behind the new “Narnia” movie are walking a tightrope in their quest to promote the third film in the fantasy franchise to a Christian audience and to general moviegoers.

    “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader doesn’t open until Friday, but Fox and family-friendly producer Walden Media have been showing it to influential Christians for about a month, even before a finished print was ready.

    That the studios have been reaching out to the faith-based community is an obvious strategy, given that it is based on the “Narnia” series from Christian philosopher C.S. Lewis.

    But they also are going out of their way not to pigeonhole the film as something that will appeal just to the world’s 2.2 billion Christians. There are, after all, an additional 4.7 billion inhabitants of Earth.

    Sometimes, it can be quite tricky.

    Case in point is Liam Neeson, who voices Aslan, the resurrected lion in the upcoming film. The actor said at a news conference last week that his character doesn’t necessarily represent Christ. That might be news to Lewis, though, who wrote the opposite before he died in 1963.
