Topic: How to see Jesus Christ in Christmas

During this Christmas season, our Lord Jesus Christ should be the focal point of our Christmas celebration is because during this holiday season and on December 25th is the time that we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Now there are some people who will try to argue and debate with you about the birth date of Jesus Christ saying that he was not born on December 25th. But the importance is not in knowing if Jesus was born on December 25th or not, but it the importance is in knowing and believing that He was born.

You see, over 2000 years ago, Jesus Christ was born in a city called Bethlehem. When He was born, he was born not in a hospital like most of us, but He was born in a stable, in a manger, where all the animals slept because the scripture says that there was no room for them (Mary, Joseph, and newborn baby Jesus) in the inn.

But what makes Jesus birth so special is that He was born in virgin birth of a virgin woman by the power of the Holy Ghost. That is, Jesus Christ birth was not an act of Joseph and Mary having any type of sexual relations with each other. But rather it was the act of the Holy Ghost coming upon Mary and overshadowing her, and she became pregnant with the Son of God without having any sexual relations with any man. But when the Holy Spirit came upon Mary to impregnate her with Jesus, this was also an act of God the Father sending his Son Jesus Christ to save the world from their sins. That is, God sent His Son Jesus Christ into the world through the virgin birth of a virgin woman Mary by the power of the Holy Ghost.

Isaiah 7:14 says, “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign: Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”

Isaiah 9;6 says, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”

John 1:1-2 says, “In the beginning was the Word(Jesus Christ) and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God…..

“And the Word became flesh( through the virgin birth of a virgin woman by the power of the Holy Ghost), and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”

Galatians 4:4 says “But when the fullness of time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law…….. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosever believeth in him should not perish, but shall have everlasting life” (John 3:16).

And because Jesus was born in a virgin birth of a virgin woman by the power of the Holy Ghost, when he was born, he was born with a sinless nature. You see, when we were born, we were all born with a sinful nature because our birth was brought about by man, and because our birth was brought about by man, all of us was born in sin, because man is a sinner.
