December 25, 2012 journal, Christmas Day is often sad for me because Santa Claus gets celebrated and the true meaning of Christmas gets lost in the hassle of giving cooking and eating. I want to make a difference in this world to make people aware of responsibility to God and man. We have grown into vast complacency taking God for granted and not praying. Life is to be lived 7 days a week with daily prayer & Bible reading and devotion with our family. The Christian walk is different than the world and we must recognize it. It can be said that Christian people today have no eyes, ears or mental understanding. I painting Sad Santa in 1990 but it was interpreted as my objection to commercialism and maybe it was or should have been. Christmas should be all about Christian living and not lying to our children about some fictitious big red Santa Claus bringing them toys of mass destruction. Children are growing up without even knowing what Christmas really means. Thousands in New Jersey and New York even Connecticut are washed away by Sandy. The speaker of the House is stealing the show if not the Benjamin Netanyahu warmonger. Any real news must travel by Internet or from overseas not by this biased Illuminati press. Memorials for dead children have turned into major campaign for gun control as always. Fox fear News does not worship the same God as we do, the opposite is Satan the Devil.. No wonder modern American children lose respect for their parents after being lied to. The Christian version of Christmas is to celebrate the birth of Christ the divine Messiah born of a virgin but not Mother Mary the idol 2000 years ago in this city of Bethlehem. The sacred places are captured now by Russians and ancient Israel struggles to survive. America is the promised land and the New Jerusalem also captured by the Antichrist. Let us worship the real Christ this Christmas to put him first in our thoughts & actions always and let no one steal your joy and peace. Let us thank God for giving us this great life. Let us have a giving spirit to one and all. May the Lord God free us from the bonds of money. I pray that mankind would see their situation relative to heaven or hell on this Christmas. Jesus(Yesu) is Born - Luke 2:1-20 (King James Version) And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them." Teach your children the qualities to look for in choosing a companion for their life time. Donot allow Hollywood or Washington to influence your children away from you or God. Dwell in the New Testament gospels of Christ and the Books of his disciples, Scriptures inspired by the Holy Spirit but never forget to teach your children to obey all of the 10 Commandments including the Sabbath Day found in the Old Testament Exodus Chapter 20. Read the story of creation repeatedly tool all in your household and it witness to all boldly and without hesitation with a positive attitude and with a godly smile on your face. Let your prayers be of thanks to God and not always begging for this or that for society sake. God has said to us that he knows our needs already before we even ask anything. God will fight our battles and avenge our enemies, all we need to do is praise Him for it. Wal-Mart is not infallible as they will collapse when China goes to war against America. America has become dependent on China for every necessity, that is a risky place to be. Not only are we cheated on the dangerous quality of production but we have enabled the enemy to conquer us economically. They have reconquered us after Russian Communist have conquered us through our financial assets via the foreign Federal Reserve System. "Therefore her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine: and she shall be utterly burnt with fire: for strong is the LORD God who judgeth her". Revelation 18:8 "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD YEHOVAH is everlasting strength."
