"After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
"And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. "And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
"Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen." (Revelation 7: 9-12)
Let us Rejoice in our second birth!
We've accepted Christ as sinners, asked for forgiveness by grace, and now we have new worth!
Jesus took our sins upon himself at the cross-He paid the price so we don't have to die twice!
Only this sinless lamb could have paid the price.
He lived on earth as a man, with the Word of God in his mouth and healing in his hand!
He had to be separated from the Father on that dark day!
He descended to the depths of hell and took the keys of death and captivity away!
Jesus lived, was crucified and died-but resurrected in 3 days!
We are heirs to the Kingdom of God-Hallelujah, Hurray!
So in this season, we celebrate this virgin birth!
Oh, how glorious is it's worth!
"Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
"Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.
"But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
"And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins." (Matthew 1: 18-21)
