Shining brightly in the silent night, the great star of Bethlehem alerted the astrologists to Jesus birth and His location. He was a light in the darkness.
Christmas comes near the end of the year, and this year it seems to have extra significance. For me it portends to open a door in time when God will make Himself more known to the world.

Partially open door releases rays of light, and I creep up to the portal and glance inside. From whence comes this gleaming? A glow seems to emanate from the man who stands gently speaking to a sparsely filled room; Only a few people sit, but each listens with rapt attention. Eyes appear to catch the shine with more than just blank reflection; it appears to climb from deep inside. What is this? Truth is being revealed.
1 John 1:7
But if we [really] walk in the Light [that is, live each and every day in conformity with the precepts of God], as He Himself is in the Light, we have [true, unbroken] fellowship with one another [He with us, and we with Him], and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin [by erasing the stain of sin, keeping us cleansed from sin in all its forms and manifestations].
As the Christmas lights fill the night with color, my little one shouts, “Oh look Daddy! It’s so beautiful!” One house is amazing with thousands of lights outlining shapes in the night. It is a special house and she loves it. I’ve heard this is the last year they will be able to decorate it as they are moving. We shall all miss it. It has almost become a tradition to stop by this home during the season. Picture ~created by lights; it’s symbolic of Christ who is our light casting out the evil and bringing the light of love and goodness to the world.
Oh the miracle of God’s plan! Man got the sin nature of satan at birth, but accepting Jesus sacrificial gift to us cleanses us of sin and we are reborn with God’s nature and it all happens through the shed blood of Jesus! Choose to believe it or not. It is truth, and Jesus gift of new life can make earthly life better and guarantee a life of joy, love, wonders, excitement and peace for all eternity.
What do you trade for unbelief? More struggles with fewer answers here on earth and an eternity of suffering under the hatred of satan and pain and agony. I’m thinking one of the worst punishments will be knowing your different choice would have put you in a place of unbelievably marvelous rewards of joy and happiness.
Please my friends, pray that God will change your heart if it is wrong in its choice. God loves you so much and He is a forgiving Father. He wants you with Him! Talk to Him.
Isaiah 41:13 (AMP)
“For I the Lord your God keep hold of your right hand; [I am the Lord],
Who says to you, ‘Do not fear, I will help you.’
