He shall reign forever and ever

Luke 2:15-20

When the angels went away from them to heaven,
the shepherds said to one another,
“Let us go, then, to Bethlehem
to see this thing that has taken place,
which the Lord has made known to us.”
So they went in haste and found Mary and Joseph,
and the infant lying in the manger.
When they saw this,
they made known the message
that had been told them about this child.
All who heard it were amazed
by what had been told them by the shepherds.
And Mary kept all these things,
reflecting on them in her heart.
Then the shepherds returned,
glorifying and praising God
for all they had heard and seen,
just as it had been told to them.

Psalm 97:1-7, 9

The LORD is king; let the earth rejoice;
let the many islands be glad.
Cloud and darkness surround him;
justice and right are the foundation of his throne.
Fire goes before him,
consuming his foes on every side.
His lightning illumines the world;
the earth sees and trembles.
The mountains melt like wax before the LORD,
before the Lord of all the earth.
The heavens proclaim his justice;
all peoples see his glory.
All who serve idols are put to shame,
who glory in worthless things;
all angels bow down before him…
For you, LORD, are the Most High over all the earth.

What a lovely way to start Christmas morning! I wonder what would happen if a flash mob went to The Mall of America and sang the Hallelujah Chorus? Would it chase the demons out of there?

And with Your spirit. It is a peaceful and quiet morning, if we could only make it last but, tomorrow will be a new day and more of the same and most willl pickup where left. As for me I’ll enjoy my usual early morning walk by the lake with my Barney, and enjoy the moment.

“He will reign forever and ever” for there’s no one on this earth capable to crush Him.

Merry Christmas Dr. E and all FOTM readers. Thank you, Dr. Eowyn! A magnificent celebration for Christmas a Morning of Joy. I had a lump in my throat and wet cheeks admiring the splendor of their voices. This reminds me of society in America since WWII that remained united and strong. Very few appeared to notice the fracture beginning to swell in the late 80s as the War Drums began to sound, and yet Iraq was UNITED STATES friend and helped them fight their war with Iran. https://foreignpolicy.com/2013/08/26/exclusive-cia-files-prove-america-helped-saddam-as-he-gassed-iran/ On the evening of January 16, 1991, President George H.

What a wonderful reminder . . . . that the day will come when Christ shall reign, and all the fighting, crime, criminal acts, hatred, and animosity will be done away with. I think most of us sincerely hope that we shall see that glorious day. I want to express Merry Christmas and may the season’s blessings extend into the New Year for each and every FOTM family member. Dr Eowyn, to you I wish the very best, as you have kept FOTM up and running regardless of the obstacles that have been thrown in your way. God Bless you… Read more »

Some have maintained that the star that led the Three Kings to the stable where Our Lord was born was a conjunction of two planets—perhaps Jupiter and Saturn?—that appeared as a single star, given the magnitude of the light that emanated from it. This is not to say that we must look to the stars to discern our Destiny; The truth is quite the opposite: God Himself used the conjunction of stars or planets to send a signal to Man. Today is the Day in which all of Mankind must rejoice, for the One and Only Begotten Son of God… Read more »
