The Heroes Of Christmas by Interesting15: 8:36am On Dec 25, 2020
Christmas is always a special day all around the world. It's all about celebrating the birth of our LORD JESUS CHRIST - the Saviour and Redeemer of mankind. It's usually a season of laughter and joy, shared with family and friends and loved ones. It is always a bright season we eagerly look forward to at all times.

Nevertheless, there are certain persons we must be eternally grateful to for the Gift called Christmas, for without them, we won't enjoy the joy of Christmas every year. They are the Heroes Of Christmas.

Here are they:
1. GOD the Father Himself:
John 3:16 gives a perfect description of the essence of Christmas: "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life"
It's a tough decision to give one's beloved son as a sacrifice for undeserving folks. So, we are eternally grateful to YAHWEH for giving us Jesus.

2. Jesus Christ
Jesus is the reason for the season. Christmas is all about Jesus, and not to do stuff contrary to His Will - all in the name of celebration. Amazingly, Jesus wasn't forced to come down here to offer His life as a sacrifice to reunite mankind back to God.

As a human, how would you feel if you were asked to become an ant and start living with ants? This is what it's like for Jesus (the Immortal KING of Eternity) to come down here to live with humans. But guess what? Jesus did this willingly, because He loves you and I dearly

3. The Good HOLY SPIRIT
Yeah, the Holy Spirit also played a role as far as the existence of Christmas is concerned (the unity of the Trinity is so amazing)

Don't forget that when the Angel Gabriel was discussing with Mary, he told her "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God" (Luke 1:35). So, the Holy Spirit is also one of the Heroes Of Christmas.

4. Mary the Mother of Jesus
Of course, the womb that conveyed Jesus from the supernatural realm into our physical world, is a blessed one. The chaste Mary was able to earn the great favor to become the Mother of the LORD Himself.

Mary was obviously a strong woman. Don't forget she isn't married to Joseph when she became pregnant, and you can imagine what neighbors would have said. But she ignored the opinions of others and chose to carry and tend to the Baby in her womb.

5. Joseph
Definitely, it won't have been an easy task for Mary if not for the spiritual and wise Joseph that stood with her, doing all it takes to ensure the well-being of the Baby Jesus.

6. The Early Disciples Of Jesus
Before Jesus came here for His Earthly ministry, there have been several other religions being practiced by different people. But after He ascended to Heaven, His Disciples, who were just around 120 were able to work hard to ensure Christianity spread all over the world like wide fire. If they had not partner with the Holy Spirit to propagate Christ, then you and I won't have known about Him today.

7. Every Christian In Our Own Day
Yeah, as Christians today, we are also Heroes Of Christmas, as we keep celebrating the LORD every year, increasing HIS Fame, and making more people know about His amazing works of redemption.

In conclusion, Jesus is the reason for the season, and Christmas should increase our Love for the LORD, as we reflect upon the sacrifices He made for us. It's not a time to indulge in sinful things all in the name of celebration, but should rather propel us to make a decision to stop anything sinful we have been doing.

Congratulations to the heroes.
I prefer legend though.
Merry Christmas to all those celebrating from wherever and how ever.
So long you're alive at this moment, you're a winner!
I woke up this morning, put a call (video) through to my mom. They were eating rice and plenty of meat.
They asked what I would eat and I showed them what I was already eating - peanuts!
But hey! I am damn happy!
I followed the peanuts with a can of legend extra stout. Christmas is celebrated.
Now I'm getting ready to go for a visitation, along with two of my compound mates, to an orphanage.
God bless the world.

I so much love this religion.

Nobody is forcing you to declare anything before passing a comment.
Nobody is taking up God's fight.

Merry Xmas everyone.

Incomplete list

8. Paul
The man who was an enemy of Jesus during his lifetime but suddenly became his biggest lover after his death. This guy was very smart; he cashed out big time from gullible sheep.
He claimed that a spirit appeared to him and commanded him to preach trinity; a doctrine that neither Jesus nor his disciples had any idea of.

Jesus only called himself a teacher but Paul called him God, Son of God, Lord and Saviour. And that's how Paul gathered the highest number of followers anyone could imagine at that time.

Fast forward to modern day, many pastors still use this format. They turned the bible to a book of (financial) motivation, their sermons are about financial freedom because in the present world the real salvation many people want is salvation from poverty. So the pastors say God has given them the secrets of poverty and wealth but you must spend 10% of your income to purchase this key.

Do you not see that pastors only thrive where there's (fear of) poverty?!

See to that...

Lukgaf or someone in the other thread said that they may receive Christmas gifts just to "look good" for them to join their religion.

But they share Salah food to "nonbelievers".


Most don't know the Abrahamic Origins of both religions.
