A Child Is Born: Isaiah 7:14

Isaiah 7:14

14 Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

Dear Lord, in this holy season of prayer, song and laughter, we praise you for the great wonders you have sent us: for shining star and angel’s song, for infant’s cry in lowly manger. We praise you for the Word made flesh in a little Child. We behold his glory, and are bathed in its radiance. In this I pray, Amen

Who Gives You Faith? 1 John 5:1-5, 1 Timothy 4:12.

1 John 5:1-5

Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God, and everyone who loves the Father loves whoever has been born of him. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and obey his commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome. For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world except the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

1 Timothy 4:12

12 Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.

Dear Lord,

Lord, let my faith be full and unreserved, and let it penetrate my thought, my way of judging Divine things and human things. Lord, let my faith be humble and not presume to be based on experience of my thought and of my feeling; but let it surrender to the testimony of the Holy Spirit. In this I pray, Amen.

The Birth of Jesus Christ: Luke 2:1-20

Luke 2:1-20 ESV

In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This was the first registration when[a] Quirinius was governor of Syria. And all went to be registered, each to his own town. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the town of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed,[b] who was with child. And while they were there, the time came for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.

The Shepherds and the Angels

And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear. 10 And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,

14 “Glory to God in the highest,
    and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”[c]

15 When the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made known to us.” 16 And they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in a manger. 17 And when they saw it, they made known the saying that had been told them concerning this child. 18 And all who heard it wondered at what the shepherds told them. 19 But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart. 20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them.

Liberty Mutual Insurance commercial, Humans, during the London Olympics. This caught my attention while viewing the Olympics today.

Very cool and clever marketing and promotion department  The commercial brought me to the Human League’s Human music video below. It reminds me of those great super bowl commercials. Very refreshing.

“Dark Knight Rises,” kills 12-16 people at midnight opening showing in Aurora, Colorado, 9 miles east of Denver.  A gunman dressed in a SWAT uniform or costume, bullet proof vest, gas mask with 4 guns found & now recovered. Assault weapon, rifle and 2 handgun sprays tear gas or a flash bomb and bullets to a packed house with movie patrons where 50 more people were injured, over a dozen confirmed dead.

The gunman entered though the side exit. He could have been in the movie theater before so he could have returned to do his deadly terrorist plan. Anyone who attends movies know of the exit doors. He has said to thrown two gas canisters in crowd upon entry before shooting. He remained calm thoughout his horrendous act witness described.

The gunman is to have said walked  at the corner of the screen after the previews, threw canisters shot-gun(s) and then walked into the lobby where people were huddled, running out the building to save their life.

James Holmes, born December 13, 1987, is a 24-year-old white male with clean record and no links to terrorism. is now in police custody. The police found him at a car in the back of the theater.  Did he run out of automatic ammunition?

Law enforcement of three different agencies is now searching the suspects apartment for bombs explosives and other weapon of destruction. Shooter told police he had explosives both in his car and in his home.

Was it  a premeditated action, I believe it was.

Movie theaters will now have to identify their procedures for entry and exits due to this horrific crime. Did he act alone? This has not yet been verified. Will the movie opening suffer as a copy cat person might perform the same mass murder theater.
