THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
A Jewish lady was stranded late one night at a fashionable resort -
one that did not admit Jews.
The desk clerk looked down at his book and said, "Sorry, no room.
The hotel is full."
The Jewish lady said, "But your sign says that you have vacancies."
The desk clerk stammered and then said curtly, "You know that we do
not admit Jews. Now if you will try the other side of town..."
Mrs. Rosenberg stiffened noticeably and said, "I'll have you know I
converted to your religion."
The desk clerk said, "Oh, yeah, let me give you a little test.
How was Jesus born?"
Mrs. Rosenberg replied, "He was born to a virgin named Mary in a
little town called Bethlehem."
"Very good," replied the hotel clerk. "Tell me more."
Mrs. Rosenberg replied, "He was born in a manger."
"That's right," said the hotel clerk. "And why was he born in a manger?"
Mrs. Rosenberg said loudly, "Because a jerk like you in the hotel
wouldn't give a Jewish lady a room for the night!"
And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between
thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise
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.
Light from the Word.
Sometimes we lose sight of what CHRISTmas is all about.
It is about God becoming man to accomplish God’s purpose
FOR man, because man cannot accomplish that purpose.
There are many prophecies like the two above, in the Old Testament,
which tell of Messiah, or Christ to come.
First, He would be the “seed” of a woman.
And, He would deal a death blow to the “seed” of the devil.
The seed of the devil is evil.
The seed of the woman is Messiah, Christ, Savior, Eternal TRUTH!
He will (did) deal the death blow to evil BECAUSE --
He is “The mighty God, The everlasting Father”!
This innocent Child, Jesus, is the “express image” of God’s
Person. (Heb. 1:3)
He is the visible image of the invisible God!
He is “the WORD” of God become flesh! (John 1:14)
By HIM, and Him alone, truth CONQUERS evil for ever!
