Some Cool Christmas Facts

Lately, God has shown me some cool things about Christ's birth.

1) Mary was very pregnant with Jesus and traveled around 80 something miles (walking or riding a donkey, or both). If a woman did this today, she'd have a miscarriage or a premature birth.

2) Jesus was born in a stable around a bunch of animals. God calls Jesus the "Lamb Of God." The Lamb born around a bunch of sheep, donkeys, horses etc. God has a reason for doing everything. Nothing is an accident.

3) Jesus was placed in a manger. What is a manger used for? It's a trough filled with food to feed animals. Who is Jesus called? The "Bread Of Life." Jesus told us that when we eat bread and drink wine (or whatever), to be reminded of what he did for us. "This is my body...this is my blood." Also, man does not live on bread alone, but from every word that comes from the mouth of God.

4) That's all...for now.

Jesus has a reason for doing everything.

Merry Christmas!!

Jesus was born in the city of Bethlehem which means "House of Bread"...Jesus is our "Bread Of Life"! Pretty cool, huh?!
