ABOUT THE CURRENT TELEVISION SERIES
Christmastime is filled with wonder and awe, particularly for Christians. Sometimes it’s hard to explain the joy and excitement that we feel . . . until we remember the manger! On that first Christmas the angels brought great news for the world: “… for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” (Luke 10:11-12)
This news changed the world forever! Because of Christmas we have hope for today and for eternity. God fulfilled His promise and sent His son to earth that we might be forgiven, redeemed and have access to the throne of God through prayer in Jesus’ name. Jesus bridged the gap between sinful man and our perfect Creator.
Tune in to Turning Point Television during the month of December as Dr. Jeremiah teaches the importance of Christmas and Jesus’ birth. He uses Scripture to explain “Why There Must Be Christmas” and gives biblical answers to the questions, “Why the Wonder of Christmas?” “Why Call Him Jesus?” and “Why Call Him Immanuel?”
With each passing year, I have found that the secular media shells out lots of so-called "Christmas" movies, but what percentage of those movies share the story of Jesus Christ? Unfortunately, not many. The ongoing and increasingly evident habit of the secular world taking Christ out of Christmas (and even showing hostility towards Christ and his followers!) shows what a sad state of affairs our nation is in. Our Christian heritage is often being sabotaged by those who object to the One who holds the true meaning of Christmas - namely - Jesus Christ.
I thank God for the ministry of Turning Point! Via television, the Internet, and through printed devotionals, the gospel of Jesus Christ is vibrantly being shared throughout all the world!
Just before ascending back into heaven after his death and resurrection, Jesus himself told the disciples (and all Christians since):
Mark 16:15 And He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.
Imagine how difficult it would have been in biblical times to accomplish such a feat! But Jesus knew what technologies would be developed in the future. Now, with millions of people each holding an iPhone in their hands, such a goal does not sound very difficult today.
The TRUTH of God's Word stands forever! We can be completely confident that the prophecies regarding the return of Jesus Christ will happen. Only God the Father knows the day or hour. But God's word assures us of this fact:
2Pe 1:16 ¶ For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.
2Pe 1:17 For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
2Pe 1:18 And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.
2Pe 1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
2Pe 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
2Pe 1:21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake [as they were] moved by the Holy Ghost.
One of my favorite verses:
1Th 5:23 ¶ And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and [I pray God] your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
