Hallelujah Jesus Christ Is King Of Kings & Lord of Lords

Hallelujah, my God and Saviour Jesus Christ is indeed King of kings and Lord of lords! Isn't it something how the Lord operate? I was listening to one of my favorite Pastors yesterday on his weekly radio/ Internet Bible program. His topic this Saturday was about Jesus being King of kings and Lord of lords as it is told in 1 Timothy 6:15, Revelation 17:14, and Revelation 19:16.

So, today, I was listening to the Handel's Messiah music CD. I have been listening to it while I read the Bible. I wasn't even thinking about the fact that one of the songs titled Hallelujah has lyrics that are, "King of kings and Lord of lords!"

I was so amazed at that since the Pastor had talked about Jesus being King and Lord yesterday. I was so excited I started singing that song so loud. It's a wonder if the neighbors in the house next door didn't hear me. God is SO awesome! It's truly amazing to think about the Lord's soon return! He WILL rule and reign as King of kings and Lord of lords! Soon!

We, his bride will rule with him, but the exciting part is actually seeing him with our naked eyes and physically being with him. What true born-again Christian is there who isn't longing for an end of evil and corruption, and yearning for his glorious return?

When I  searched online for a video of the song Hallelujah to post on this blog I saw some that were "flash" singing. Those were awesome. They prove a point I made in my post about celebrating Christmas. It's a time to sing about Jesus and even unbelievers join in . I think it's a neat idea for a group of people to go to a crowded, shopping mall and then just start singing songs about Jesus.

Christmas is the ideal time to do it. It's singing and witnessing about Jesus at the same time. Anyway, thank you for reading my blog. Hallelujah! Jesus is King of kings and Lord of lords and he shall reign forever!

A New Year's Challenge For 2016

I hope everyone reading this had great Christmas. I'm so thankful for the Lord Jesus Christ for all he's done in my life and in my family's. God is such a good God.

We live in difficult times and people need wisdom. The Bible says that if we want wisdom then we should ask God and he will give it to us. One day recently I was praying and asking God for wisdom. Then it dawned on me that the Bible, the word of God IS wisdom. If we ask him for wisdom, it will not be something that he has not already referred to in his word.

I'm not saying that we should bypass asking God for wisdom. The Bible informs us that we should ask. It's kind of like what Jesus said regarding praying to the Father. He said God knows what we have need of before we even ask him, but God still wants us to come to him and ask. He wants to be involved in our lives.

The Lord will help us to apply his wisdom to our lives and to put it into action. I believe we should read the Bible and in reading it, we will get wisdom. The Holy Spirit will help us to understand it. So, my new year's challenge for 2016 is for Christians to read all of God's word from Genesis 1:1 through Revelation 22:21.

I've read the entire Bible in one year in chronological order a couple of times before. Now I'm looking to do it in 2016. I encourage all Christians to do it. It's not really as difficult as it seems. There are a total of 1,189 chapters in the Bible. If you read as few as three or four chapters per day, everyday then by the end of the year you will succeed. You will be able to say that you've read the whole Bible. It's quite an accomplishment.

If you're a long time believer in Christ, don't you think it's good to have read through the entire word of God at least one time. The Bible says that the word of God will never pass away. We are going to reign with the Lord Jesus. Surely the system of governing with him will be the Bible. Why not get a head start by reading and learning God's word now?! From all I see in these evil days, we don't have much time left. Jesus is coming back soon. We will rule and reign with our Lord. Let's get into the his word.

What Christmas Is All About - Share The Good News

Christmas 2015 is just a few days away. It's one of the few days of the year that's a more opportune time to witness to the unsaved world. It should be a time that is easier to bring up the subject of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. He is the true reason for Christmas.

In recent times, Christians have had to deal with the commercialization of Christmas and atheists' legal threats against Nativity displays, Christmas Trees, and even complaints of hearing sales clerks say the two so-called offensive words, "Merry Christmas".

Now, add to this people who say they are Christians who attack Christmas as being pagan. Also, Holiday specials are starting to include Muslim songs and traditions. It should be obvious that when you see so many different people and organizations attacking Christmas, that it has to be something special to God. It's a time when Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God is honored all over the earth. The devil and his minions do not like it. All kinds of people, even those who are not Christians worship Jesus in songs. Movies and television shows give reverence to the Lord. The devil is reminded of his devastating defeat and coming judgement. That is reason alone for me to celebrate Christmas.  

The other day, I heard about a new attack on Christmas. A school or group was doing a play of "It's A Charlie Brown Christmas", but it was decided to remove the part where Linus quotes the Bible, telling the true meaning of Christmas. How ridiculous is that?

It's passed time for Christians to use our freedom of speech and not let political correctness, atheists, and ungodly people silence the proclamation that the Saviour, Jesus Christ was born. He lived a sinless life. He gave his life to die on a cross for our sins. He rose from the dead and now sits at the right hand of God the Father in heaven. We can have eternal life in him if we repent believing in him as being sacrifice for our sins and confess him as Lord and Saviour. (Romans 10:9,10) That's the good news.

I don't care who it offends Jesus Christ is the reason for Christmas. I celebrate it in honor of my king, my God, my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  What about you?

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! Jesus IS the reason for the season!

I know. I know. I know. I have pretty much abandoned this blog. I've have not made any new post in about a year. That's bad. Again, I know.

I just wanted to say to anyone who, happens to read my blog or watch my YouTube videos, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year!

Jesus Christ is the reason for the season. For those who do not observe Christmas for whatever reason, that's fine and wonderful just as long as you "don't observe it" as unto the Lord. Those who do observe it should observe it as unto the Lord. As the apostle Paul says, let everyone be persuaded in his own mind. Who are you to judge another man's servant?

One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind. Romans 14:5 
 He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it... Romans 14:6
Who art thou that judgest another man’s servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand. Romans 14:4

I acknowledge and give thanks for Christmas, the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ, no matter what day he was born. It is a holy day or holiday. According to the bible, no one can judge me according to the observance of Christ birth on a particular day.

Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moor, or of the sabbath days: - Colossians 2:16
There's no need to debate or argue. In my experience, most Christian "Christmas haters" are hypocrites. However, there are some Christians who are genuine in their choice of not to observe Christmas. Those who try to condemn Christians who do celebrate the birth of Christ on December 25th are going against clear scripture.

I have done a little bit of research on this and believe the Lord was born around the time it's celebrated. We know that the Lord Jesus was born 6 months after John the baptist. I believe John the baptist's father Zacharias was performing his duties as priest during the burning of incense during Yom Kippur and shortly after his days of ministering he went home and his wife conceived John the Baptist, just as the angel Gabriel told him. Yom Kippur falls on either the month of September or October of each year. These are my thoughts. Every Christian ought to study for themselves.

Now, on to another subject. Last year, I made a New Year's resolution to read the entire King James bible, from Genesis to Revelation, by the end of the year (2013). I was successful and kept my resolution. In fact, I think that might be the ONLY New Year's resolution I've ever kept and completed. Praise God. I've decided to do it again this year. I am going to read through the entire bible by the end of 2014. I love God's word and reading through it from cover to cover gives great satisfaction.

In 2014 I'm reading thru the Bible from Genesis to Revelation again. 

This time around, I'm thinking about making a daily video or audio recording and making a short blog post to keep track of my progress. I'd like to do this, but I don't know. I've been pretty pathetic in posting to this blog on a regular basis, so I won't make any promises on that. LOL. If I do decide to do this I will be posting on another blog of mine, Holy King James Bible.

Again, I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ IS the reason for the season and everyday of the year!

O.K. For Christians To Celebrate Christmas

Many people have stated that Christmas i.e. December 25th is from pagan roots and that Christians should not have anything to do with celebrating it. They also make mention of the scripture found in Jeremiah 10 that admonish Israel not to learn the ways of the heathen.

It's o.k. for Christians to celebrate Christmas, the birth of Jesus Christ. It's o.k. to give gifts, but I'm against the Santa Clause lie. There is no Santa Clause who deliver toys to every child on Christmas Eve.

First of all, many things in our culture are from pagan roots. For example the days of the week; the months of the year, etc. Even things like baptism supposedly comes from pagan roots. However, Every Christian knows that Jesus was baptized and wants us to be also.

Now regarding Christmas; the birth of the Lord Jesus DID happen. No one knows the exact date, but he was born. He is the promised Saviour. He is God in flesh who was born to die for our sins, and to rise again. In doing so, he made it possible for us to be reconciled to God the Father. We can observe that fact or celebrate that fact on any day we want to. The Bible does not condemn nor does it condone the commemoration of Christ's birth.

Let me ask a question? If you observe birthdays, anniversaries or celebrate weddings or the birth of a baby, etc, then why is it wrong to acknowledge and celebrate the birth of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ? Births, weddings, and anniversaries are blessings from God, but Jesus is the greatest blessing ever.

As for Jeremiah 10 that some people claim is speaking about Christmas trees. I submit it is not.

"For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not." Jeremiah 10:4,5

This scripture has nothing to do with Christmas nor with Christmas trees. It's talking about idols gods. The heathens made wooden idols with wood from the tree and decked them with silver and gold. They nailed them down so that they would stay up. The next verse talks about the fact that they have to be carried around because they could not walk; also that they could not speak.

By the way, I don't know of anyone who deck Christmas trees with actual gold or silver. No wonder the heathens had to nail their idol gods down with all that weight on them.

Now, I have some questions if this is referring to Christmas trees. Why would people need to carry around a Christmas tree? The heathens probably carried their idol gods around with them for "good luck". Also, this scripture goes on to tell Israel not to be afraid of them. Why would people today have to be told not to be afraid of ..... Christmas trees?

No, this has nothing to do with people putting up a Christmas tree for a month which afterwards they dump in a landfill or a wood chipper to be destroyed. Nor has it anything to do with an artificial tree that is stored in a dark, dusty, old attic for 11 months out of the year and forgotten about.

The bottom line:  

Many things in our culture have pagan roots that we don't have any control over. The devil has always tried to circumvent God and corrupt what God has done or will do. He has a little bit of knowledge about what God's plans are so he tries to corrupt things before hand. Also, there have always been people who try to bring Christians under the law and legalism.

Jesus WAS born and is our Saviour. We can celebrate that any day we want even if most of the world may use that day as pagan. The Bible does not condemn nor condone the celebration of Jesus' birth. Why celebrate your own birthday and other celebrations and not our Lord and Saviour's?

Jeremiah 10 is not talking about Christmas trees. There might be some crazy people out there who may actually bow down and worship a Christmas tree, but Christmas trees are not idol gods.

We can celebrate the Lord's birth on Christmas if we want to. We can give gifts on Christmas if we want to. However, I am against the Santa Clause lie, and I am against excess. As long as we do not sin and keep Jesus as Lord, God and Saviour we can celebrate Christmas. We are not under the law but grace. I'll end with these two scriptures.

"One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind. He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it..."  Romans 14:5,6

"Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:" Colossians 2:16
