“And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.
(And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)
To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.
And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.
And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.
But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.
And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them” (Luke 2: 1-20) KJV
NO ROOM FOR HIM
As we see in the Scriptures, there was no room in the inn for Mary and Joseph to deliver Jesus that night. So He was born in a lowly stable. The King of Glory born in a manger, where livestock had eaten. It was there that God ordained His only Son to come into the world. You see, there are no mistakes with our God.
Have you made room in your heart for the Savior? Many in this world love Christmas, and even love the sight of a nativity scene with baby Jesus. But they stop there. Jesus came into this world for one reason – to die for your sins and for mine.
The Word says that we are sinners and cannot save ourselves. But out of His great love for us, here is what the Bible tells us:
“For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement” (Romans 5: 6-11).
Most people do not realize that this small babe – born to a virgin – fulfilled God’s prophetic Word:
To see more prophecies fulfilled by Jesus go here:  – source
So THIS is CHRISTmas! If you have not repented and believed on the Lord Jesus Christ and His death and resurrection for the forgiveness of your sins – Make room for Him this day!
Without Him, you will spend eternity in hell. God wishes that NONE would perish but that all would be saved.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved” (John 3:16-17).

Merry Christmas Geri! God bless you big-time!
This is one of the very best Gospel messages I have ever seen. Thank you. I put it on my Facebook page and one of my friends shared it right away. There are some Jewish family members that will see it, including a Rabbi. So far they don’t want to hear it, but I hope and pray.
