Our Opinion i 11'


The birth of1


Jesus Christ
As told in Matthew 1:18-25
18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way.
When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph,
before they came together she was found to be with 7
child from the Holy Spirit. 19 And her husband Joseph,7 being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, / /
resolved to divorce her quietly. 20 But as he considered
.these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared toi ,
him in a dream, saying, "Joseph, son of David, do not
fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is con-
ceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21 She will bear. a
son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save
his people from their sins." 22 All this'took place to I
fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet: 23 "Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a // /
son, and they shall call his name Immanuel" (which''
means, God with us). 24 When Joseph woke from sleep, I'
he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him: he .
took his wife, 25 but knew her not until she had given
birth to a son. And he called his name Jesus.
As told in Luke 2
2 In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that
a census should be taken of the entire Roman world.
2 (This was the first census that took place while Quirnn- f
ius was governor of Syria.) 3 And everyone went to their oestio foc

Letter from Jeus about Ghristm.







From Have a
Our S afe &



Blessed


To Yours Christmas,



It has come to my attention that many of you are Upset that folks are taking My name out of the
season.
How I personally feel about this celebration can probably be most easily understood by those of
you who have been blessed with children of your own. I don't care whatyou call the day Ifyou
want to celebrate My birth, just GET ALONG AND LOVE ONE ANOTHER.
Now, having said that let Me go on. If it bothers you that the town in which you live doesn't allow
a scene depicting My birth, then just get rid of a couple of Santas and snowmen and put in a small Nativity scene on your own front lawn. If all My followers did that there Wouldn't be any ,.need for such a scene on the town square because there would be many of them all around
town.
Stop worrying about the fact that people are calling the tree a holiday tree, instead of a Christmas
tree. It was I who made all trees. You can remember Me anytime you see any tree. Decorate a
grape vine if you wish: I actually spoke of that one in a teaching, explaining who I am in relation
to you and what each of our tasks were. If you have forgotten that one, look up John 15:1 8.
If you want to give Me a present in remembrance of My birth here is, my wish list. Choose
something from it: -f
1. Instead of writing protest letters objecting to the way My birthday is being
celebrated, write letters of love and hope to soldiers away from home. They are terribly
afraid and lonely this time of year. I know, they tell Me all the time.
2. Visit someone in a nursing home. You don't have to know them personally. They
just need to know that someone cares about them.
3. Instead of writing the President complaining about the wording on the cards his
staff sent out this year, why don't you Write and tell him'that you'll be praying for him
and his family this year. Then follow, up..,. It will be nice hearing from you -again.
4. Instead of giving your children a lot of gifts you can't afford and they don't
need,spend time with them. Tell them the story Of My birth, and why I came to live with
you down here. Hold them in your arms and remind them that I love them.
5 Pick someone that has hurt you in the past and forgive him or her.
6. Did you know that someone, in your town will attempt to take their own life
this season because they feel so alone and hopeless? Since you don't know who that
person is, try giving everyone you meet a warm smile; it could make the difference.
7. Instead of nit pickingabout what the retailer in your town calls the holiday,
be patient with the people who work there. Give them a warm smile and a kind word.
Even if they aren't allowed to wish you a "Merry Christmas"that doesn't keep ou from
wishina them one. Then stop shopping there on Sqnday. If the store didn't make so
much money on that day they'd close and let their employees spend the day at home
with their families
8. If you really Want to make a difference, support a missionary--especially one
who takes My love and Good News to those who have never heard My name.
S 9. Here's a good one. There are individuals and whole families in your town who
not only will have no "Christmas" tree, but neither will they have any preSents to give
or receive. If you don't know them, buy some food and a few gits andg ive them to the
Salvation Army or some other charity which believes in Me andthey wi I make
the delivery for you.
10. Finally, if you want to make a statement about your belief in and loyalty, to
Me, then behave like a Christian. Don't do things in secret that you wouldn't do in My
presence. Let people know by your actions that you are one of mine.

Don't forget; I am God and can take care of Myself. Just love Me and do what I have told you to
do. I'll take care of all the rest. Check out the lit above and get to work; time i's short. I'll help you, but the ball is now in your court. And do have a most blessed Christmas with all those whom you
love and remember.
lI LOVE YOU,
,. ::: " "JESUS
