I’m just working on my last Nativity cartoon: Matthew 02 – The Nativity – Scene 05 – wise men in Jerusalem and hoping to finish it today, in time for Christmas. All that remains is for me to wish you all a very Happy Christmas & I pray that God blesses you all during the festive season.
This scripture (from my daily Bible reading) caught my eye this morning, I thought I’d share it with you today. It is from the last book in the Holy Bible, the book of Revelation, which is a full of wonderful & mysterious imagery about the last days of the earth. In this part, the apostle John sees a vast host of people singing a praise/worship song to God…
Revelation 15:3-4 (NLT)
And they [all the people who had been victorious over the beast and his statue and the number representing his name] were singing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb:
“Great and marvelous are your works,
O Lord God, the Almighty.
Just and true are your ways,
O King of the nations.
Who will not fear you, Lord,
and glorify your name?
For you alone are holy.
All nations will come and worship before you,
for your righteous deeds have been revealed.”
This is a timely and apt reminder of the reason for the season: Christmas is all about Jesus coming to the Earth in the form of a baby, in order that he might save us all from our wrong-doing (sin) when he grew into a man & died on the cross.
As the song above says, “For you alone are holy. All nations will come and worship before you, for your righteous deeds have been revealed.” How amazing and true is that: Jesus’ righteous deeds have now been revealed, for ALL to see, whether they acknowledge Him or not; whether they believe or not. The fact remains, Jesus’ righteous deeds have been revealed.
If you are not a Christian, then I urge you to consider the promises of God and to consider the amazing truth that is now revealed: Jesus died for your and my sins, and his offer of eternal life is still available for us today. Why not give Jesus the best present you possibly can: yourself – by choosing to believe in him & giving your life to him, by becoming a Christian this Christmas. If you do that, will you please contact me and tell me? That would be brilliant news!
God bless you all this Christmas,
