aura writes; Peace be with you this Christmas. For the past five years, my Christmas has been as quiet as possible. I avoided shopping this holiday and didn’t even send out a card. I wrote a couple up but never got around to mailing them. I am not in a bah humbug mood, but my mood is tempered by the many people in this world who are suffering and strugglling to stay afloat. The last time I shopped was in 2004, buying lots of socks and stylish sweaters and calendars for people. In the years that followed I cut out the shopping and donated money to a needy family. This year my colleagues at work did the same instead of doing a grab bag. Money was collected by the whole department and given to a needy family so they would not be evicted from their home.
The greatest gift anyone could receive is the gift of peace, which is our Lord Jesus’ gift to us. Even if you work yourself up into a shopping frenzy, you still feel peace iin the end I suppose after all the gifts are unwrapped, all the cooking is done and all the guests are contented. Or there are those who make a conscious effort to remain centered and stay out of the material feeding frenzy that goes on during the holidays. Then the holiday itself is extremely peaceful, since mosts store where I live are closed and everyone is remembering the greatness of God.
Savor the everlasting peace that is and always will be Christmas day, because we’ll have to wait a whole ‘nother year to experience it again. Peace be with you and yours always.
Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. And having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!” But when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this was. Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.” (Luke 1:26-30)
The angel continues:
“And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a son, and shall call His name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.” Then Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I do not know a man?” and the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God. Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month for her who was called barren. For with God nothing will be impossible.” Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her. (Luke 1:31-38)
For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end. Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. ( Isaiah 9:6-7:)
After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not wanting to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly. But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.” Now all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.” Then Joseph, being aroused from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and took to him his wife, and did not know her till she had brought forth her firstborn Son. And he called His name Jesus. (Matthew 1:18-25)

They are the real terrorists, not the Palestinians. They have hidden behind the cloak of the Holocaust to carry out their genocide of the Palestinians, when the truth of the matter is, they have been holocausting the Palestinians since 1948. They have broken their convenant with God by refusing to keep His commandments, and if you continue to support them and their terrorist state, you will ultimately be forced to share the blame for their sinful actions.
It is time to show some spiritual discrimination and loyalty to Christ and His teachings by renouncing support for these cruel Jewish extremists and spreading Jesus’ message of love, peace and charity towards all of God’s creatures.

Christmas in Bethlehem this year was the most difficult in memory. This reality probably wouldn’t surprise most Americans who have a general sense of Middle East conflict. However, a survey we commissioned reveals that Americans are ignorant of many other basic facts about Bethlehem. Most Americans cannot identify our town’s location, its inhabitants, or the cause of Bethlehem’s demise according to most of its residents, Israeli military occupation.
Most Americans believe Bethlehem is an Israeli town inhabited by a mixture of Jews and Muslims, according to a nationwide survey by top U.S. pollsters Zogby International. Largely unaware of Bethlehem’s historic community of Palestinian Christians, only 15 percent of Americans realize that Bethlehem is a Palestinian city with a mixed Christian-Muslim community, lying in the occupied West Bank.

aura writes: I hope all of you Christian Zionists are proud of yourselves for supporting the demonic state of Israel, despite mounting evidence that it is the manifestation of the anti Christ. Now that Israel is poised to nuke Iran, how long will you be able to justify to yourselves that the Israelis share your “Christian” values? I’ve got news for all of you Zionist Christians – Israel HAS NO VALUES! Why do you think Christ rebuked the cheif rabbis to begin with?
Have any of you Christians supporting Israel ever bothered to read the Talmud, the book all rabbis study, which decrees that Jesus is in hell, being boiled in feces, because he opposed the rabbis? That little ditty can be found in the “holy book” of Judaism in Tractate Gittin 57a. You better have a barf bag handy while investigating the crude rantings of the Talmud. Just dust off the one you use while watching the debased programs of prime time TV or the latest Hollywood release.
So Christ should be boiled in excrement, eh? No wonder some refer to these sinners as being of the Synagogue of Satan!
How long will you Zionist Christians stand by and watch these Judeo Bolsheviks (that founded the unlawful state of Israel) murder Palestians and Christians (50 million in Russia during the Revolution) to acheive their sick marxists goals? All Christians who have turned their backs on Jesus’ teachings by supporting the Israeli genocide in the Middle East will have to answer to God. Repent NOW by withdrawing your support for the demonic terrorist state of Israel and begin asking our Lord to dismantle that insanely evil state at once. The sins that unholy nation is visiting upon the world are creating war, terror and constant chaos, and shall not go unpunished. Divine retribution will be meted out to Israel, its inhabitants, and all those who support the Israeli state, which continues holocausting Palestinians and any Christians that get in their way. May the founders of Israel, its leaders and its people, as well as any counrty or person that supports its unspeakable crimes against humanity be punished by God.
A closer look: The Israeli origins of Bush II’s war
By STEPHEN J. SNIEGOSKI
While the neoconservatives were the driving force behind the American invasion of Iraq and the consequent efforts to bring about regime change throughout the Middle East, the idea for such a war did not originate with American neocon thinkers but rather in Israel. An obvious linkage exists between the war position of the neocons and what has long been a strategy of the Israeli Right and, to a lesser extent, of the Israeli mainstream.
The idea of a Middle East war had been bandied about in Israel for many years as a means of enhancing Israeli security. War would serve two purposes. It would enhance Israel’s external security by weakening and splintering Israel’s neighbors. Moreover, such a war and the consequent weakening of Israel’s external enemies could help resolve the internal Palestinian demographic problem, since the Palestinian resistance has derived material and moral support from Israel’s neighboring states.
A brief look at the history of the Zionist movement and its goals will help to provide an understanding of this issue. Continue reading at LINK
