A most blessed Christmas to all!

Isaiah 9:6
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 Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Matthew 1:22,23
So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”

John 1:14
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

John 14:2,3
"In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also."

Our Lord came here the first time...exactly as Scripture said he would. Our Lord is sure to return a second time...exactly as Scripture says He will.

When He came the first time as God manifest in human flesh, it was the most humble of beginnings. Most people did not believe nor did they understand that Jesus was the promised and long awaited Messiah who had come to save His people from their sins. Because of that, many missed the first coming of the One who was the eternal King and Savior of the world.

However, when he returns a second time, He won't be seen as a helpless baby lying in an animal feeding trough in a filthy stable as He was at His first coming. Nor will Jesus appear as a young boy sitting on the lap of the one who physically gave birth to His humanity. He won't return as a suffering Jesus either - hanging on a cross naked, beaten and bleeding while dying a most horrible death.

When Jesus returns the second time, He will be a victorious Jesus who has conquered death and the grave. At the second coming His fierce wrath will crush and defeat all evil, and He'll be ready to declare judgment on an unbelieving world. Nobody will miss His second coming!

Jesus will decend from heaven in great power and glory riding a milk white stallion - followed by the armies of heaven. His eyes will be as blazing fire. Written on His blood stained robe and thigh will be the Name: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

The Bible promises that every eye will see His coming...every knee will bow before Him...and every tongue will confess that He is Lord.

Are you ready to meet Him? Is He your Savior, your Lord, and the Master of your life? You must be very sure.

Come quickly, Lord Jesus!

When i received JESUS, i called Him my Hero. Now, 6 years later, i KNOW that He is indeed the Hero of all heroes...HE is The CHRIST and is the ultimate Hero. He will come back as that "glorious knight in shining armor, astride His white horse" -- not as some romantic hero from some fairy tale -- but as The TRUTH incarnate, the Conquering Hero, the Almighty and Faithful MESSIAH...not just for the believing Jews, but for all the believing Gentiles of the world.

Amen!!! Yes, He is our Hero of all heros and He's coming back soon!

He is also the Alpha and Omega, the Bread of Life, the Prince of Peace, the Everlasting Father, the Light of the World, the Great Shepherd of the sheep, and the Lamb of God.

He is the bright and morning Star, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the Way, the Truth, the Life, the Word of God, the Redeemer, the Savior, the Mighty God, the King of Kings, and the Lord of Lords.

Jesus...that Name above all names is coming back soon! Praise God!
