   I was reading in Isaiah 7 1 – 25 where Ahaz , the king of Judah , was worried that GOD could not meet his needs. The prophet told the king that GOD would send Judah a sign, Verse 14 states   ” Therefore the lord Himself will give you a sign : the virgin will be with child ,and will give birth to a son , and will call HIM Immanuel.” Thank You JESUS!!!

   Ahaz had fear of his enemies,and ,GOD does not give us a Spirit of fear!!! GOD needed to reassure HIS people ,of who were in doubt , that HE was more powerful than any enemy which came against those of whom HE had chosen!!! GOD is GOOD!!!

       I speak with many within the Jewish community today who have come to know JESUS. They realize that the prophesy has been fulfilled and that GOD came to live with us ,and ,to die for us!!! Glory to GOD!!!

   As Christmas approaches I am mentally bombarded with images of Mary and Joseph having to bear their child in what amounts to a barn. Imagine GOD asleep in a manger. I receive an image of  a perfect servant ; someone who is born on low ,yet , through HIS life , is placed on High!!! A GOD who is full of a perfect AGAPE Love!!! Thank You JESUS!!!

     As uncertainty about the future grows around the globe JESUS is being raised up once again. More and more humans are finding GOD in the midst of their woes ; seeking a real answer to their problems. I know that I thank GOD for the thorns in my side!!! When in our deepest need we search for GOD ,and ,we find HIM!!!  It is all part of HIS plan.He gave us a sign!!!

   Mighty cold here in Kissimmee. I need some SON!!!

   I Love you !!!!!!! Mark
