What does the heading above say? Nonbelievers and skeptics might see, GOD IS NOWHERE. But those who believe in God, especially followers of Jesus Christ, will probably find, GOD IS NOW HERE.

God is there if you look for Him. Many claiming they can’t find God really aren’t looking for Him – we usually can’t locate what we’re not actively seeking. As Jesus said, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you…he who seeks finds…” (Luke 11:9-10).

This week we affirm anew, God is now here. Amid the cacophony of carols, shopping mall madness, and politically correct “happy holidays,” the timeless truth remains: “‘The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel’ – which means ‘God with us’” (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23).

One of the Christmas verities is that God is neither distant nor inscrutable nor unknowable, as some religions assert. He deigned to live among His creation, becoming one of us for a time. As John 1:14 declares, “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.”

But the Christmas story does not stop at a tiny stable in an obscure village called Bethlehem. It continues to the very crossroads of salvation. Philippians 2:6-8 describes Jesus, “Who, being in very nature God…made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and become obedient to death – even death on a cross.”

And because of that cross, many centuries later we look back with joy and wonder at the unique family: A virgin mother, Mary; her husband Joseph, and a baby named Jesus – in Hebrew, “Y’shua,” – Christ the Lord.

Merry Christmas!

There is undeniable proof that the traditional pagan name of 'jesus' was not a correct transliteration of The Messiah's G-D given birth Name in any language! And proof exists in not just one, but in all New Testament greek manuscripts from which pagan catholic and christian translators created their own version of the "bibles"!

Yes, undeniable proof!

First, the greek word "Iesous" was first used by those who translated the greek septuagint, which was the Hebrew to greek translation of the Old Testimonies.

In the greek septuagint, which was translated prior to the natural birth of The Messiah, the greek word "Iesous" was used to represent "Jeshua, son of Nun, so named by Moses".(Numbers 13:16)

And so it was established that the greek name "Iesous" represented the Hebrew name YeHoWsHuwa'(which should have been translated as Jeshua, rather than 'joshua' in the english language Old Testaments).

Then in most all the New Testament translations, from the various pagan greek manuscripts, the word "Iesous" was translated correctly as Je(o)shua(YeHoWsHuwa') in Acts 7:45, Heb 4:8 and Col 4:11.......

Yet then the same greek word "Iesous" was traditionally (for the past 500,or so, years) translated as their "imag"ined 'jesus' in all other places of the English language New Testaments ;-(

However, in the original kjv(aptly named as king james' version he was the king of the church OF england) those who did the translating of the New Testament decided to rename Je(o)shua and declared the Je(o)shua of the Old Testament to be of the same name as their "imag"ined 'jesus' in both Acts 7:45, Heb 4:8 and another Je(o)shua in Col 4:11 ;-(

At least the translators of the kjv were consistent, yet the result of their consistency is "confusion and every evil work" ;-(

In Truth the greek "iesous" can not be translated both as 'jesus' and je(o)shua.......

And so it was that a heretical tradition was established less than 500 years ago ;-(

Now if one wishes to take liberty and change the name of the Old Testament "Je(o)shua" to 'jesus', well that is their choice, yet a sad choice indeed and Truth ;-(

And worse yet you could accept the traditional lie that the Greek word "Iesous" represents both "Jeshua" and the catholic and christian 'jesus'. For those who seek The Light of Truth that is confusing at best and another sad choice ;-(

Truth IS that the "imag"ined name of 'jesus' was not spoken for more than 1500 years after The ONE and ONE and Only True G-D, Father(Creator) of ALL raised The Messiah from among the dead!

Truth IS that The Messiah's G-D given birth Name was YeHoWsHuwa'(Jeshua in modern day English)!

Prior to the 16th century was no 'j' sound in the English language, which is verifiable in most any encyclopedia. And there never has been a 'j' sound in either Hebrew or Greek.

Those who yet cling to the "imag"ined name of 'jesus', after The Truth was presented unto them, have chosen to follow the ways of pagan catholicism and her firstborn pagan "chrisitan" daughter, "the church OF england" ;-(

And finally, the "imag"ined name of 'jesus' was not the transliteration of the pagan greek 'iesous' but it was the transliteration of the pagan latin catholic 'iesus'.......

Now how could it be that the translators of the 'bibles' from pagan greek manuscripts used the pagan latin catholic 'iesus(jesus)' rather than the pagan greek 'iesous(jesous)' for the name of their "imag"ined messiah?

Pagan catholicism has most certainly had it's way with her pagan christian daughters ;-(

I am sad for all yet held captive by the "strong delusion" that is their "imag"ined 'jesus' ;-(

And soon those held captive by the pagan catholic 'jesus' will once again 'pay' homage to one head of her three headed pagan 'god' on her pagan x-mass holi(y)day ;-(
