Christmas was an act of war.
Do you realize that?
With the birth of Jesus, God Himself invaded enemy territory. Satan had rule over earth since the fall of man. But Christmas began a significant battle. God entered the battle ground.
And Satan threw everything he could at Him.Herod sought to kill the baby Jesus. He slaughtered hundreds of innocent children in the process. Bethlehem had become a battle ground.
God knew that we were trapped within enemy territory. He wanted to offer us freedom. Jesus came to rescue us. God desires no prisoners of war. (2 Peter 3:9)This is what Christmas is.
When the angels sang, they proclaimed cries of victory. They knew with Christ on the scene, it was only a matter of time.
Glory to God in the Highest…and on Earth, peace and goodwill toward men.
Everything Satan threw at God, Jesus conquered.
No temptation swayed Him.No threat overcame Him.
Not even death could stop Him.
God proved the victor!
Christmas was the beginning of the end.Christmas was an act of war.
The Christmas invasion brought our rescue.
This is why we come.O come let us adore Him.
