“Stop bringing meaningless offerings! Your incense is detestable to me. New Moons, Sabbaths and convocations— I cannot bear your worthless assemblies. Your New Moon feasts and your appointed festivals I hate with all my being. They have become a burden to me; I am weary of bearing them.” – Isiah 1:13-14
Why is Christmas a Really big deal?
Because at that time just like now even people “doing” all the right things are Not pleasing to God!
Jesus had to come Not because people were not following the law but because the law is No substitute for what God really wants – a Radical Relationship with you based on His Amazing Love for you!
“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.” – Isiah 1:18
The ONLY way to “settle the matter” once and for all was a sacrifice “once and for all” – the birth of that sacrifice we celebrate as Christ-mas!
Here is the problem – there are forces at work that don’t want you to see this first Christmas Present – Jesus Christ for The Complete Present that He IS!
In this series “Why Christmas” I will go in-depth into the prophecies of what Jesus would mean, the promise of Jesus and how one cold little baby on a starry night in a small back water town Radically changed your future, my future and the world! I hope you will share this journey with me!
