To God be the Glory ! I pray you had a wonderful experience on this celebration that we Christians celebrate I believe for the world to know who Jesus is and what He means to us. Then again, there is so much controversy going about this day. (historians really can’t pin point the actually day Christ was born) but all that matters is that He was and thank God! Not sure what was going on with me hearing from Christians during this season saying “It doesn’t feel like Christmas anymore” I almost fell in the trap when I first heard it and I had to ask God to forgive me. The quote actually sadden me to hear from the saints and I actually had to go in my secret closet and ask God what is going on? Of course, He pulled be back to reality and took me to scriptures. Just as the enemy was trying to pull me to what was told to me the Lord quicken me and reminding me first of who He is and brought into my thoughts a specific scripture about the remnant on the earth. The Holy Spirit had me read 2 Timothy Chapter 3 and then I realize why the word Remanent came to my thought. I did a quick survey on the ones that said it and now I realize that something else was going in their life to have them believe that Christmas isn’t the same because of life circumstances which brought them to state of mind. This is why it is so important that we pray for those that God puts in our path during this season. On the other hand Keeping in mind the scriptures. So I prayed for them and and awaiting for the next person that comes across me about this season not being…… I will remain quiet and pray for them. I was so happy when another person said it I told them just continue to pray and I will pray for them too. Remember, the enemy was pulling me to this state of mind but to God be the Glory the Holy Ghost let me know that the enemy is a liar in fact the father of lies. The Lord brought me to the below scriptures.
2 Timothy Chapter 3
1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all [men], as theirs also was.
10 But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience,
11 Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of [them] all the Lord delivered me.
12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned [them];
15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
16 All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
All I can say is God help us!
