Christmas' Bitter Reality

When did getting a car become part of Christmas?  Christmas is an exciting time of year, no doubt about it, and it's not a surprise the deceiver would keep twisting it into something other than what it is.  The more he can avoid the reality of what Christmas day represents, the more he can continue in his darkened version of life and not face the bitter reality - yeah, how about that?! Christmas Day is a bitter reality for him!!

So, because I think God Himself would like to remind that devil of the bitter reality of the meaning of Christmas, I think I'll join Him in recalling the details of ALL that day 2000 years ago signified.

First, let's remember the angels that night.  God sent them to shepherds.  Well, He sent ONE to some shepherds, but then, a whole host of angels couldn't contain themselves and just burst through Heaven and into this world of three little dimensions to shout and sing of the Glory of the King they worshipped eternally...  

Here was a demonstration of Love never seen before. The eternal God, creator of men who fell into Satan's grasp, was setting aside His Glory in Heaven to enter the world He created... as a baby.  Oh, I'm sure the angels knew why He was doing it.  He was going in to rescue men from the darkness in which they were chained.  He was going in to show, for all to see, just who had the authority here, and to take His own back from Satan's grasp.  

...more to come

I WAS going to add more about the story of Christmas... but I think this year I'm going to stop there and just relish the reality of the dawn of a new era.  Christmas Day was the beginning of the end for satan. ..and WE are the bitter reminder of that end for him.

So bless the Lord this Christmas.  Share the Love of God, say Merry Christmas to everyone, heal the sick while your at the mall, sing your favorite Christmas songs, cast out demons... you know, share the Christmas cheer! Its C-Day!

Isaiah 61: 1,2 - "The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, and He anointed me to bring good news to the poor, to bind up the broken hearted... 
to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God..."
