Happy Christmas! 2018.
Written by Grant Hayman   

Your birthday and the date you will die has been established by Christmas! How, you might ask? The calendar date of your birth is measured and recorded from the birth of Christ. BC and AD.

BC is time measured before the birth of Christ and AD is the Latin expression "Anno Domini" which means, "In the year of the Lord" and is time measured forward from the birth of Christ.

Our time now - AD 2018.
Wonderfully, as Christ is the ROCK of time, he also is, as Christmas declares, the ROCK of ETERNITY!

Isaiah in the Bible wrote 700 years before Christ, about a man coming, that will be the ROCK of Eternal Salvation for all mankind - Isaiah 32:2. (KJV) (+ Isaiah 7:14. 9:6. 53:1-7.)

"And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land."

The chilly winds of your death and mine came upon Christ on the cross. "Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, was buried and rose again the third day according to the Scriptures" [1 Corinthians 15:3-4.]

And because he is risen victorious over the grave, Jesus has become the ROCK of ETERNAL LIFE for you and me if we believe on him!

Dear friend, come without hesitation to Jesus, come under the shadow of this Great Rock in the weary land of this failing World.

As Jesus has established your calendar birthday, so also when we believe on him as the ROCK of our salvation, the Bible tells us clearly that we are born again with his ETERNAL Life and we become children of God. [John 1:12-13.]

Thus Christ alone has the power to change your ETERNITY and mine. What a great Christmas REALITY.
Peter said to Jesus on one occasion,
"Lord to whom shall we go, you have the words of ETERNAL LIFE" [John 6:68.]


.....>>> The Glory <<<


~ What a wonder Christmas is - Much more than toy and party wiz - Glad tidings of great joy profound - Glorious benefits in Christ abound!

~ Rejoice O believer! What wondrous grace - Has come in the face of such human disgrace - A measure from Heaven abundant and free - So great a salvation for you and me!

~ Think it not strange that a lowly birth of one - Would prove to be God's only dear son - That one so rich would become so poor - The price paid for sinners to open Heaven's door.

~ O yes! we do well to wonder at such amazing grace - That one so beautiful should take our place - To purchase forgiveness and present the sinners case - Our advocate at the throne, cancelling all that would abase.

~ Thrill to know more, dear friend of God's great love - With new life in Christ, there is so much more from above - You are now complete in Jesus and blessed as God's child - But be ready against Satan your enemy, and temptations wild!

~ Press on for the prize, great glory will rise - Remember not past failures, so mournful and unwise - But look to Jesus, abundant life he supplies.

~ Run all out in this glorious race to win - Refusing the wasteful attractions of sin - For the prize is not in some doctrinal whim, but in Him!

The Lord Bless You and your family and also ..... others through you in a special way this Christmas.

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? [Romans 8:35.]
