25th December: A Case for Celebrating 25th Dec. as Jesus' Birth Day

Christmas is soon here with us. Santa Claus, Decorations, gifts, lights, Cards, Joyful Carols, Special liturgies, drinks, festive foods and etc have over the years become linked to Christmas.The question is: "has Christmas lost its significance?@ Or another question will be "has Christmas had any significance at all?"Christmas as it has been accepted worldwide is the celebration of the birth of Jesus on 25th December. Now this assertion that Jesus was born on 25th December comes into open confrontation with an argument that  rejects  25th December as the birth date of Christ. 

Truly, there is no calender record that Jesus was born on 25th December but there is enough Theological and Biblical evidences that He was born and actually walked on earth.
That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. The life appeared; we have seen it and te…

Some excerpts from my book (Chapter One)

I believe as Christians, we have to start re-examining closely our beliefs, whether we have not diluted it with human wisdom. Knowledge is good— but when the world's way of doing things is wholly imported into the church without any system of filtration, then we are in trouble!


Spirituality is a must for every Christian; “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace” (Romans 8:6). Being spiritual does not mean...does not...mean becoming eerie, boring and irrelevant to earth. Being spiritual simply means living by the truth of God's word—the Bible and allowing His Holy Spirit to direct us.


If the eyes of the natural man cannot see; the eyes of the spiritual man can see. If the ears of the natural man cannot hear, the ears of the spiritual man can hear and if the heart of the natural man cannot believe or perceive, the heart of the spiritual man can believe and perceive—“…blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, forthey hear” (M…

BELIEVE IN WHAT YOU HAVE

1 Samuel 10:26-27.
26:And Saul also went home to Gibeah; and there went with him a band of men, whose hearts God had touched. 27:But the children of Belial said, How shall this man save us? And they despised him, and brought him no presents. But he held his peace Interesting piece of scripture. Samuel has just anointed Saul King and immediately he got his followers. These followers accepted Saul as King and followed him.

But in the next verse, vs27, another interesting incident happened. Some people did not accept Saul as King though God has anointed him to be King. The Bible describes them as “Children of Belial.” In the Bible anytime you see the expression children of Belial, it simply means "worthless fellows".

Now, don’t be naive to expect everybody to accept what you have. You can be very gifted and anointed, still there will be people who will look down on you. You can't influence everyone, you can't touch everyone. Note vs the last phrase of vs 27, "But …

Biblical Truths: Excerpts from the Introduction

...it is the right of every Christian to hear from God—Our father. Hearing from God should not be the preserve of a few. Spend time with God and you will hear from Him. Be challenged and desire to know God and hear from Him. God still speaks.

You might have heard a lot about Him. But I believe it is time to hear from Him yourself. The Samaritan woman who Jesus encountered at Jacobs well in John 4, preached Jesus to the Samaritans. But later on, hear what they said in John 4:42.

Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.

I believe God with you that as you read, you will come to an understanding of what God has for you. It is very crucial for us as Christians to have an understanding into God's plan for our lives. The world is not going to reward our belief in God. It will rather fight us from becoming all God has for us. It is therefore imperative that we get to know God's plans …
