The Meridian Star
Each Christmas more atheists challenge Christ in the holiday. This rejection of God by society is nothing new and was in existence many years before the lifetime of this generation.
A few years ago the Christians objected to Xmas, which struck Christ out of Christmas. The word was explained away with the Greek symbolism of XR-ChiRho which stood for CHRist in Greek.
For a lifetime many have looked for a means to prove or disprove the existence of God. At the university, students have studied the sciences and engineering and the continued search for the meaning of life.
When I left the Army I went back to Central Bible College and Seminary for post graduate study in Theology. Most science supports the existence of a supreme being, except for faith science and pseudo-science such as the theology of evolution taught in every classroom in public school today. Science has never found the link to biological class, phylum and gender which scientifically disproves evolution.
In the reality of LIFE and as a historical fact, Jesus was born in the little town of Bethlehem 2012 years ago. A historical fact from Micah 5:2 where God said 700 years before the birth of Jesus that a “ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times" (NIV) and from the Ancient of Days will be born in Bethlehem. PROBABILITY—IMPOSSIBLE
In the reality of LIFE God had a Son, Jesus. Proverbs 30:4, “who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son's name?” The only answer is Jehovah, God. This was spoken by Solomon (Agur) who prophesied of the Son who was, who is and is to come 1,000 years later. PROBABILITY—IMPOSSIBLE
In the reality of LIFE the Son of God always existed. John 1:1 reads, “in the beginning was the Word (the expression of God), and the Word (the expression of God) was with God, and the Word (the expression of God) was God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. PROBABILITY—IMPOSSIBLE
Isaiah 9:6 records, “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, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. 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 forever.” IMPOSSIBLE, IMPOSSIBLE TO COME AGAIN.
ALL FACTS REQUIRE FAITH! TODAY AND IN THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON, MAY ALL YOUR FAITH BE IN THIS HISTORICAL FACT OF GOD GIVEN LIFE.
