The Christmas Story Birth of Jesus Christ Silent Night

 

THE BLESSINGS OF CHRISTMAS BY PASTOR DAVIS

Today, we present to you one of the most Incredible Christmas Story ever told.  It was told to us by Luke, “a Disciple of Jesus Christ,” with no trees or lights, just a manger and animals and a too-crowded inn.  It isn’t surprising that there was no room for them in the village inn considering the number of travelers flocking to various cities during the time of this census.

At some time during their visit in Bethlehem, the promised child was born.

Mary wrapped the baby in strips of cloth, which were bands of cloth that were used to keep a baby warm and give it a sense of security.  These cloths were believed to protect its internal organs.  This custom of wrapping infants is still practiced in many Mid-eastern countries.  Then Mary laid him in a manger, an animal’s feeding trough.  She may have filled the manger with hay to make a soft bed.  This mention of the manger is the basis for the traditional belief that Jesus was born in a stableStables were often caves with feeding troughs (mangers) carved into the rock walls.  Despite popular Christmas card pictures, the surrounding was dark and dirty.  Everything pointed to obscurity, poverty, and even rejectionLuke showed the King of Kings born into poor and humble circumstances, born as a human, born to serve.  Now listen to this great story and continue reading on the other side of this clip.

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.

(And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.

And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.

And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.

But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.

And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.  (Luke 2:1-20 KJV)

We bless this message to you this day, that you and your family will receive the promise of hope, and that the joy of this Christmas will be an everlasting experience for all to enjoy. Now as you watch this final video clip, let all remember the reason for celebrating Christmas.  From our family to yours, I remain your brother in Christ Jesus, Pastor Davis
