The unsuspecting world at the time the angel came to Mary had no idea of the events that were about to unfold. Although the Jewish people (the house of Jacob) were expecting a messiah, a deliverer, they did not expect him to come like this! They had preconceived ideas about how he would be and how he would save them from oppression. Consequently, they did not recognise Him when He came and failed to see their need of Him. How many today are in the same position? They love what is known as "the spirit of Christmas" and how exactly they think Christmas should be celebrated with no idea of Who Christmas is really about. Maybe we can take the opportunity this Christmas to point someone to the Saviour and the fact that He will return; not, this time as a baby but as a conquering King and Judge of the world.
"You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end."
"This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen Him go into heaven."
Acts 1: 11
PRAYER FOR WORLD PEACE
Lord Jesus. You came that the world might know the peace that You have experienced with the Father eternally. Yet, you taught us that in this lifetime there will be wars and rumours of wars. Nations will rise against nations as violence works itself out in the world. However, through You, the world may be saved. O Lord send Your spirit into the hearts of all men, that the world might know true peace through Your abundant mercy. We pray for all the leaders of the world to govern rightly. Let all the presidents, governors and prime ministers carry out their duties according to Your leadership. Give them wisdom to lead the world according to Your will. We pray that You direct all leaders to make the best decisions for the world.
In the name of Jesus.
"Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he had done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End".
We have such a wealth of treasure in God's Word, the scriptures. Everything we could ever need is provided for us."

In our studies, we all share equally in reading the chosen passage of Scripture and discussing what it means in its historic setting as well as its relevance to us as 21st Century believers in Jesus.
We are continually amazed at the richness of God's Word and how it relates to our situation.
You can see what we are currently studying and learn more on our Bible Groups page here.
