Do Not Miss The Point of The View of Christmas

Read Matthew 1:18-23
This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about; His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit, because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly. But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”)
Say – God is with us!
If today any nation is strong it is strong because of it's army forces
To be at the border and face the enemy is one thing but to cross the border and enter in the territory of the enemy is another thing
Say – Lord of the host is with us, He is our strong hold
Let us read a scripture from Bible
1 John 3:8b
……  the reason Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work.
When you enter in the territory of your enemy it means you are charged completely.
That is what Jesus did.
He was fully charged and for what He was sent
The interesting story of Christmas was written with a deep purpose by our creator 
Because of the love of the creator Jesus entered into the territory of the enemy, so that He could bring deliverance to the people from the bondage of the devil and set them free from eternal death
He agreed to die a death on the cross and suffered insult, pain and sorrows and thus paid the price for our sins
Read Romans 5:6
You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly
In this busy Christmas season I pray that you don’t miss the point of view of Christmas
Remember He was born so that we can escape from the fire of the hell
Read John 3:16
 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
You are also called by the same God for the same purpose what Jesus did. Let me explain this more.
Could you go to the camp of the enemy this Christmas and pray for the salvation of the captives?
Read Luke 15:7
 I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.
Allow the heaven to come right now in the midst of you and you rejoice in the Lord because Christ the Savior is born
