Who Started CHRISTmas?

From the writings of Sumner Wemp

Who started Christmas?


A woman who was out Christmas shopping with her two children. After hours of hearing both her children asking for everything they saw on those many shelves, she finally made it to the elevator with her two kids.
Finally the elevator doors opened and there was already a crowd in the car. She pushed her way into the car and dragged her two kids in with her and all the bags of stuff. When the doors closed she couldn't take it anymore and stated, "Whoever started this whole Christmas thing should be found, strung up and shot."
From the back of the car everyone heard a quiet calm voice respond, "Don't worry we already crucified him." For the rest of the trip down the elevator it was so quiet you could have heard a pin drop.
"But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart" Lk 2:19.
O dear people, ponder this illustration, ponder what is happening to Christmas. Christ is almost completely left out. It is now a holiday, not a HOLYday. Ponder what is happening to God in the whole world. In America we are about to see freedom FROM religion not freedom OF religion. Wake up world! All this is all the more reason we must study prophecy and read the "signs."
Prayer:  Father, bless your people and help us to be people who have "understanding of the times." Prepare us for the new year and may we make godly resolutions that will make a difference in eternity. In Jesus name.

We should all be praising God for starting the first Christmas and everyone there after.  If you have accepted Christ in your heart you you can be thankful for being able to have your sins washed away and if you have not accepted Christ in your heart be thankful you can if you choose.  Please receive the greatest gift ever given and invite Christ in your heart today.
