What has been called the Christmas Story, isn't a Story at all: it is True, and well documented History. For Followers, it was expected that Immanuel would come - just as promised.
Mary conceived approximately the end of September; and was a legal vessel to bring GOD from Eternity, into time.
Immanuel-Christ-Jesus: the, greatest, Gift, to mankind.
The Word states that when Jesus came, HE brought Truth, and Grace with HIM: thank YOU LORD.
HE open the door to the Kingdom of Heaven, on earth; to who-so-ever-will: thank You LORD. The Cross-of-Christ destroyed Death[Satan], and reconnected mankind to our Father: thanks.
My Merry Christmas to all of the age of accountability has absolutely nothing to do with toys: but simply a reminder of the great Gift of Immanuel. This is the greatest time to be alive in history.
Merry Christmas 2015 - the year of our LORD!
