Jesus is the Reason for Christmas

Matthew 1:18
18This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit. 19Because Joseph her husband was a righteous man and did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.

20But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus,[c] because he will save his people from their sins."

22All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: 23"The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel"[d]—which means, "God with us."

24When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. 25But he had no union with her until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.

Matthew 2 NIV
The Visit of the Magi

1After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem 2and asked, "Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him."

3When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him. 4When he had called together all the people's chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Christ was to be born. 5"In Bethlehem in Judea," they replied, "for this is what the prophet has written:
6" 'But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
are by no means least among the rulers of Judah;
for out of you will come a ruler
who will be the shepherd of my people Israel.'"

7Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared. 8He sent them to Bethlehem and said, "Go and make a careful search for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him."

9After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen in the east went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. 10When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. 11On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold and of incense and of myrrh. 12And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route.


Sometimes we are caught up in gifts that we forget the reason for Christmas. If we go deeper we want Jesus in our heart.

It's not about Mary or Joseph but it was about Jesus. It's not about the Priest or Pastors but it is about Jesus Christ. May we remember Christmas through Jesus Christ.

We have to renew our relationship with Jesus he someone who rate bitterness and un-forgiveness.

Acts 4:12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved."

And if we forgive we don't count how many times they sinned. Did God count our sin?
Santa Clause was use by the enemy to put away Jesus. The world will look forward to Santa Clause than remembering Jesus in Christmas.

People today will give gifts just to receive gifts. The reason for Christmas is not about food, gifts and drinks, it is only about Jesus.

Many people believe that we are saved by good works. But it is only faith in Jesus Christ, if you rate yourself by your good works then you are wrong in understanding salvation.

We need to change your mind and heart that is what we called repent. You have to believe in Jesus Christ. If the Demons believe and tremble before Christ but they don't have personal relationship with God.

Blessed are those who humbled in spirit. John 3

Jesus - means Joshua, Jehova is LORD salvation.
Magi - Wise men or astrologer.

Pastor's Message
Ephesians 2:8-9 8For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9not by works, so that no one can boast.


Salvation is the best gift that you could ever have in your life! Salvation is for FREE, you don't have to earn or pay for it! All you have to do is receive Jesus Christ and Believe Him with all your heart. So this Christmas, let us remember God's Love and Grace for all of us. Have a blessed Christmas.

"Depend on God's Word" from 2 Kings 3

Water is the picture of the word of God, as we have so many trials in our life and we have to depend in God's word (drink the water to replenish our Spiritually)

Sin is a sin, and don't compare yourself to other people, the most important is your personal relationship with the Lord.

When we spend time with His word, it is like diving in to the sea looking for a precious pearl.

Be innocent of evil but be excellent of what is good.

Ephesians 5:19 Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord,


Jeremiah 32:17 "Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.


We have to be in truth and depend on God's word. We should worship God in Spirit and truth.

"Test the Spirit Be Careful" from 1 John 4:1-11

Matthew 24:4-5 Jesus answered: "Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, 'I am the Christ,' and will deceive many.


Acts 17:11 Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.


We need to be vigilant and be careful. Don't believe in everything other people says but read the Bible, if you will not read the Bible you will be deceive.

Some religion teaches Jesus is the brother of Lucifer. Did the Bible says that?
Others believe in reincarnation - is against the Bible.

1 Timothy 4:1 The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.


Our learning and teachings are exclusively for Bible.
And we have to be careful in false teachings.

John 1:14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.


If you do not acknowledge that Jesus is from God then you are anti-Christ

Matthew 24:5 For many will come in my name, claiming, 'I am the Christ,' and will deceive many.

2 Thessalonians 2:8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming.


It is so important to depend on the Holy Spirit.
Stop, Look and Listen.
Stop and Look at the Bible and Listen.

Romans 8:27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God's will.


We are more of conquerer cause we are in Christ. Because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.

If you are in Christ the power of the enemy can't posses you specially if you are filled with the Holy Spirit. The enemy can only tempt you and put trials, but we have love and protection from the power of God. Do not fear.

Ephesians 6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.


Pastor's Message
James 2:1 My brothers, as believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ, don't show favoritism.

Do you know that favoritism is a sin?
Are you showing favoritism towards someone else? If so, you've broke the law and sinned against God. As Christians we need to be sensitive and careful that we don't show partiality to our kids, relatives, friends and co-workers. As we celebrate Christmas and give gifts to our loved ones we should show no partiality, for we know that it is a sin.

"Follow the Lord" from 2 Kings 2

Luke 9:23 Then he said to them all: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.

So many times the Lord will test our sincerity and we continue to pursue our relationship with the Lord.

Our commitment to our Lord is not just for short time. We should never leave our faith.

A faith that can't be tested - Can't be trusted.

Hebrews 11:23 By faith Moses' parents hid him for three months after he was born, because they saw he was no ordinary child, and they were not afraid of the king's edict.

We follow the Lord cause If loves us.
You can't imitate God if we have doubts.

"Have a True Love" from 1 John 3:11-24

Love is not just a feeling but also a choice.

Sometimes jealousy and envy can overcome our flesh but a being Christian should not feel those evil desire, so even thou you have hatred - you are accountable to your body, know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. We need to look at Jesus as He deals with Pharisee, we need to love people and have concerns with them, to pray for them, when you are praying then you are also loving, if you hatred then you have to confess be honest, we need to check our hearts as God knows what are in our hearts.

1 Peter 4:8 Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.


Luke 6:20 Looking at his disciples, he said:
"Blessed are you who are poor,
for yours is the kingdom of God.


We are not all lovable, so don't be surprise if the world will hate you.

2 Timothy 3:12 In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted,


The people look at me 6 days a week just to know what we are on Sunday.

Anyone who does not love remain in the darkness.

God will bring them but love will keep them.

Matthew 5:21-22
21"You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, 'Do not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.' 22But I tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother[b]will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to his brother, 'Raca', is answerable to the Sanhedrin. But anyone who says, 'You fool!' will be in danger of the fire of hell.


Keep in mind what matters most is in our heart.

Revelation 21:8 But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death."


John 15:13 Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.


We need to do and act our love. Something that we need to do as "Love" is an action word.
1 John 3:18 Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.


Proverbs 19:17 He who is kind to the poor lends to the LORD,
and he will reward him for what he has done.


Let us show it in our actions not just you have to do it but want to do it. You need to be sincere.

John 10:15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep.


God will change your heart for you will have Love in your heart.

1 John 3:24 Those who obey his commands live in him, and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us.
He lives in us as the the Holy Spirit lives in Us


Pastor's Message
James 1:2-3 Consider it pure joy, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.


Trials is something that we cannot avoid as Christians. As for me, I do not really enjoy trials in life. But we need to be joyful because it is a test of our faith. When you endure trials, it develops perseverance and produces godly character in you. So I encourage you today to continue in our walk with the Lord even in the midst of trials.
