Anchored In Him ~ 2005 Christmas Welcome Message

We at Anchored In Him would like to extend Seasons Greetings and Happy Holidays from our family to you and yours. This year our great nation is still fighting the war on terrorism and we Christians should be fighting a war on the removal of God from everything in our great nation. Now the stores have and are removing Christmas from their advertising and even many radio stations are now using the "Happy Holidays", "Holiday Sales",
or "Holiday Shopping." Others have said it is no big deal if Christ is removed from the Christmas season as they would still shop.
We are more concerned about being politically correct then being a God fearing nation that is morally correct! We can not mention
prayer or Christianity in our public schools, but we can teach religions that teach hatred towards and to Christianity.
Our God fearing forefathers would wonder if the flee from Europe under persecution would really be worth it today.
We need a great revival within our great nation! As you read part of the last years welcoming statement below I would ask these people that makes such statements as above if they know Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.

I am including a link to the American Family Association that list different stores that have taken the stance of removing Christmas from their stores and advertising. I cannot and will-not tell you how or where to spend your money. You can
not worship the dollar and the Cross! A man can not serve two masters!

Luke 2 (New International Version)

1In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. 2(This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) 3And everyone went to his own town to register.

 4So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. 5He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. 6While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

 8And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. 12This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."

 13Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
14"Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."

 15When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, "Let's go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about."

 16So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. 17When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.

Matthew 2

 1After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem 2and asked, "Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him."

 3When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him. 4When he had called together all the people's chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Christ was to be born. 5"In Bethlehem in Judea," they replied, "for this is what the prophet has written:
 6" 'But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
      are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler
      who will be the shepherd of my people Israel.'"

 7Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared. 8He sent them to Bethlehem and said, "Go and make a careful search for the child.  As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him."

 9After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen in the east went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. 10When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. 11On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold and of incense and of myrrh. 12And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route.

  As we all hurry through the Christmas holiday season we tend to forget the real and true meaning of Christmas. Remember He is the reason for the season. If you do not know Him or do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ this would be your best gift in your life. Remember to attend worship services and have a blessed holiday season.
