A Christmas message, Christ is born praise be to God, Jesus leads us to the father and guides our actions, Christianity changed the Roman Empire the Vikings and caused a spontaneous truce on 1914 battlefield, God intervened in 2016 election
“2:6 And so it was, that, while they were there,
the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
2:7 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.
2:8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field,
keeping watch over their flock by night.
2:9 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.
2:10 And the angel said unto them,
Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
2:11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
2:12 And this shall be a sign unto you;
Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
2:13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
2:14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.”
Merry, blessed Christmas.
I have about a million things that I want to say simultaneously.
But the message is simple.
Christ was born to lead us to the father and salvation.
The prince of peace who abhorred evil.
Who overturned the money changers’ table in the temple.
Whose message and followers changed the Roman Empire, the warrior Vikings and caused a spontaneous truce on the WWI battlefield in 1914 with the singing of “Silent Night.”
The problem with our world is not guns or money .
The problem is not obeying and respecting the creator of the universe, God and his messenger, Jesus Christ.
God does work in mysterious ways.
I told several of my friends after the election that the hand of God was involved.
I was pleased to find the following.
From the Greensboro News Record December 20, 2016.
“Franklin Graham: It wasn’t Russians who intervened in election, ‘it was God’
Evangelist Franklin Graham doesn’t believe it was the Russians who intervened in this year’s controversial presidential election.
It was God, he declared during President-elect Donald Trump’s final public rally before the Electoral College vote Monday.
“I don’t have any scientific information. I don’t have a stack of emails to read to you,” Graham told the crowd in Mobile, Ala., according to the Washington Examiner. “But I have an opinion: I believe it was God. God showed up. He answered the prayers of hundreds of thousands of people across this land who had been praying for this country.”
His comments also included a prayer that God heal “the divide that we have in this country.”
I encourage everyone—whether you voted for President-elect @realDonaldTrump or not—to come together & pray for him. https://t.co/qbbZuH6k1S

Graham, the son of evangelist Billy Graham, hosted well-attended prayer rallies across the nation before the election, urging Christians to vote. He’d like to believe those rallies succeeded.
When Trump took the stage Saturday, he praised the younger Graham and said he’s heard that Billy Graham, at age 98, “is doing well.””
