When was Christ born? When Christ was born there was political upheaval, children were being put to death by the law of the land, and the nation of Israel had been conquered by the last great Gentile power. When Christ was born the political world for the Jew had changed dramatically. Suddenly the Jew was being ordered to enroll in their birth city, and pay taxes to a government that they did not want to serve. But in spite of all this confusion which was taking place on the earth, Christ was born! God sometimes will upset the whole world, in order to fulfill His Word! It will be at a time of trouble, when the world is all upset, that He comes the second time. Ps 27:5 for in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
This Christmas Season, may we be hid away in the Revelation of the Word for the “season” we live, waiting and watching for our change?
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas Day!
