Merry Christmas from Cafe Sozo!
Over two thousand years ago, the future of the world was in Bethlehem Judea… during the time of King Herod..
John 3: 16
16For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten ([a]unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.
God looked down through time and knew that you would be dealing with today and so He sent His only son to become in essence a second Adam (before the fall) to restore and reconciliate man back unto God. His son was Jesus The Anointed One. That means that the power of heaven backed him to loose miracles, to heal the sick, raise the dead…to do whatever was heavenly necessary….on earth. And he did just that.
But do not overlook that the very same Jesus who did all of that still lives. You see, he died and on the third day he rose up out of the grave, revealed himself to many witnesses and went to sit at the right hand of God; to be our advocate for whever we are in need.
But here is one of the most important scriptures of all times regarding this:
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. HEBREWS 13: 8
Jesus is still alive and “down through the years” …he has continued to provide miracles, signs and wonders.
That is truly something to be thankful for!
