He Came To Die

Jesus Christ, the Babe in the Manger — came specifically to die for the sins of the World, Jew and Gentile..Often we forget this truth at Christmas time.

It was predicted in the Old Testament that he would come to die for the Nation of Israel — but ALSO for the Gentiles!!

In the Old Testament: Isaiah 60:3 Speaking of the Lord and His Messiah:
And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.

Isaiah 53:5
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

And in the New Testament:Acts 28:28
Be it known therefore unto you, that the salvation of God is sent unto the Gentiles, and that they will hear it.

Romans 1:16
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek [Gentile].

At this time of fun and family, remember:

Jesus is THE SAVIOR – He died for YOU.. was buried and arose from the grave. He is ALIVE. Believe in Him — HE alone saves!!

Have a wonderful time celebrating the Savior’s birth and trust Him alone for your eternity..

And how can you know for sure?

    Thanks — and we wish you the best New Year ever. The Rapture?

    In Christ eternally,


  5. Amen! Ain’t it wonderful bro. Jack, that His grace transfers from one year to the next!! God Bless you in ’09!

  6. And a Blessed New Year to you and your Schweetie!


  7. Lynda,

    Wonderful Plan,
    Wonderful God,
    Wonderful Savior.

    In Christ eternally,


  8. The Messiah was Plan A from the Beginning. Nothing catches the Creator by surprise, and the Lamb was slain from the foundation of the world.
    He is worthy! He is holy! He is good! He is Love!

    And, most blessed of all, He is alive!

    May 2009 be a year filled with His Glory, Presence and Blessing for us all.

  9. thank you, jack for your faithfulness and thank YOU to our blessed SAVIOUR! i’m so glad there was a plan “b”!

  10. Merry Christmas from your friends at COMMON CENTS!

  11. Thanks Z,

    I value your friendship and fellowship in Christ.

    Merry Christ season to you and Mr. Z — throughout the year.

    In Christ eternally,


  12. A very blessed, healthy Christmas to you and yours, Jack!
    We should all remember this glorious day every day of the year…so nice that you do and that you remind us.

  13. AOW,

    Thanks for your astute observations!!

    I know, I had no use for the message of the Savior’s birth or His death and resurrection… until I finally trusted Christ as my Savior — and then suddenly — it all made wonderful sense.

    We pray you will have a blessed Christmas and a wonderful, healthy and prosperous New Year in the Lord.

    In Christ eternally,


  14. I note that a lot secularists ‘celebrate’ Christmas. But not Easter, which makes them so uncomfortable (except for the Easter bunny, of course)! I find that discomfort about Easter very telling.


    Merry Christmas, Jack! And may 2009 bring you bountiful blessings and good health.

  15. Bro. Herm,

    Yes, this does appear to be a seemingly hopeless world… but we who have trusted Christ as Savior have an everlasting Hope (Guarantee) and no reason to despair.

    The best to you and yours on this Christ celebration, now and for all eternity.

    In Christ eternally,


  16. Jungle Mom,

    Thanks — please cross post.

    The more who see the Gospel the better.

    The best you and your family this Christ celebration season and forever.

    In Christ eternally,


  17. Brother Jack, This is the true and only message that just keeps on giving! Thank you for posting this Wonderfully Good News that came so humbly in a manger, so long ago. but still gives us such hope in this seemingly hopeless world today. Yes, He Lives!! May God richly bless you and your family on this Christ Birthday Celebration and in the coming New Year. God Bless, Herm

  18. May I cross post this? and a very Merry Christmas to you and your wife!

  19. TMW,

    Yes, Our Savior was, is and has been– before there was a beginning and has shown Himself.

    In Christ eternally,


  20. Bro David,

    Can’t hear it too much. When we ignore the Gospel, we ignor the Savior.

    In Christ eternally,


  21. “I love to hear the story,
    How a Savior came from Glory…”
    G*D bless and MARANATHA!

    Though I do believe that HE “tabernacled” with us at the Feast of Tabernacles…

  22. Bro. Jack!

    This warms my heart again! Each time I hear it, more precious than before!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
