But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for see, I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people: To you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign for you: You will find a child wrapped in bands of cloth and lying in a manger.”
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will among people.”
merry christmas to all – either religious or not – is a great time to celebrate being alive and having family that loves you. Started te day with my daughter and wife – pancakes and champagne. Off to the wife’s extended family soon, then my extended family tomorrow. All good.
Isa 9:6 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.
Isa 9:7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
That the mighty God chose to humble Himself and become a man that we might know salvation through Him.
To those that accept Him as their Lord and Saviour; the One who washes away their sins through His shed blood, may you indeed know His peace in your hearts. For without Him there can be no peace.
1Jo 5:11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
1Jo 5:12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
1Jo 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
Come to Him now in repentance that you might be both cleansed of your sins, and have eternal life.
In Him is life indeed!
Luk 2:8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
Luk 2:9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
Luk 2:10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
Luk 2:11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
Luk 2:12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
Luk 2:13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Luk 2:14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
Christ is indeed peace in men’s hearts, and God’s will revealed.
Come now those that will come.

I guess you will get the significance of the comment number.
Seasons greetings David. Thankyou for another year of a terrific blog where most can indulge their bias, intellect or stupidity and if they accept your tolerant attitude can have a debate unequalled in the genre. From a wonderful family xmas in the sunny Hawkes Bay I would wish ALL those who visit here all the very best.
