The Reason for the Season:The Birth Of Christ (Luke 2:1-20)

 We sometimes get so caught up in the busy holiday season that we forget what we are truly celebrating in Christmas, the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Take a moment and remember the story of Christ in the King James version of the Bible…

1And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.

 2(And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

 3And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

 4And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

 5To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

 6And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

 

7And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

 8And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

 9And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

 10And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

 11For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

 12And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

 13And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

 14Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

 15And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

 16And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

 17And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.

 18And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.

 19But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.

 20And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

The Birth Of Christ ~ Boyz II Men

Merry Christmas from Reach Magazine TV!

Well they traveled over hills and mountains
On a cold December night just like this
For they knew what was going to happen
Mary would give birth to the prince of peace
Our Lord
From the manjor what they saw in the distance
Was a misty silloutte of three kings
Bringing all the most prescious jewels to our savior
Knowing he would soon be called the king of kings
Our Lord

On Christmas day
They saw a star in the east and followed it
On Christmas day
That marked the birth place of our Lord and Savior
Jesus Christ
All free from sin
Here to give us a chance at everlasting life again
So the world
So cold you better let him in
To your heart

From the sight of the blessed child was full of beauty
As they looked upon the one who would save our world
To their knees they dropped and started to worship
Giving thanks to God above for the prince of peace
Our Lord
No one knew back then that on that evening
That the miracle of miracles came true
That a God above would come down from heaven
In the form of a child
That would set us free
Our Lord

Is Friday the 13th As Unlucky as They Say?…

bad_luck-781031

Friday the 13th always brings such mixed feelings to everyone these days.  Is it an unlucky day? Is it a lucky day? Do I avoid mirrors and ladders and cats? Do I stay inside all day long and avoid anything that can bring bad luck???

Try this word on for size…Paraskevidekatriaphobics.  This is someone who is afraid of Friday the 13th and if you are one of these people, you should probably stop reading now or be forever afraid of this day of the week.

Friday has been considered an unlucky day for a long time.  Jesus was said to have been crucified on a Friday according to scripture and there is also “Black Friday” which has been associated with huge sales the day after Thanksgiving and also with stock market crashes and other disasters.

But what about the number 13?  Why is it considered such an unlucky number to some but a lucky number to others?

Some say that the number 13 was considered a lucky number by ancient China and Egypt.  Egyptians believed that the number 13 signified death but not in a bad way.  They believed in 12 stages of life and the 13th is death in a glorious transformation.

On the other side of the spectrum, Norse mythology believes that 13 people sitting and dining with eachother is bad luck and one will die within the next year.  Did you hear that there were 13 people sitting at the Last Supper with Jesus Christ? And he died on a Friday remember?…

It’s said not to change your sheets on your bed on Friday or it will bring bad dreams…

They say not to drive on Friday the 13th because studies show that there have been more accidents on that day…

Don’t start a trip on the unlucky day either…haven’t you heard the story of the H.M.S. Friday?

About a hundred years ago in Britain, Sailors who were afraid of setting sail on Fridays because it was considered unlucky were going to be shown that Friday was not an unlucky day and a special ship was commissioned called the H.M.S. Friday. They launched the ship on a Friday, chose the crew on a Friday, made her captain a man named Jim Friday and she set off on her maiden voyage on a, you guessed it, Friday.  The ship and her crew was never seen or heard from again

But bad luck is not for everyone. Take J.O. at Reach Magazine TV, who both agree that Friday the 13th is just another day.

“I don’t believe in luck,” says J.O., “There are blessings and divine instruments and there’s horseshoes and hand grenades.  I’ve walked across so many black cats and broken so many mirrors and nothing has happened yet.  I LOVE FRIDAY THE 13TH!”

Whether you have a bad outlook or a good one like J.O., remember that Friday the 13th is just another horror movie, just another day.

Here’s some interesting ideas on how to Beat Bad Luck on Friday the 13th.

How do you know when God speaks to you?

How do you know when God speaks to you? Reach Magazine TV host J.O. shares his personal advice below on how to recognize when God is talking to YOU. 

Imagine yourself blindfolded in a room; now imagine you have to recognize your mom’s laughter. Would you be able to do it? If your answer is yes, then in the same way you’d be able to recognize if God spoke to you. 

Have you ever had a thought that made you smile, or you told yourself ‘I love you’, ‘you’re amazing’, if so, well that’s God.

We don’t normally pat ourselves on the back, so when you have that positive reassuring voice in your head know that it is a message from the higher power.

J.O. of Reach Magazine TV“He speaks differently to everyone, some people think they have to hear His voice and have a back and forth conversation, but that’s not the case. Sometimes He can speak to you through a thought, a person, a book, a sound, or a smile,” says J.O. 

The same way you’d recognize your mother’s voice behind the blindfold is the way you recognize God’s voice, by getting to know Him. 

J.O. recommends you read the bible, “the more you are on the word, the more He will speak to you. If you’ve ever had a thought that made you smile, listen; it’s God.”

October Night: A Poem by Sherrie Marlene

 

sherriemarlene

In life we all go through various obstacles, challenges, and misfortunes.  As a result we’ve all been faced with the question of:

“Will I overcome this situation?” or “Will I be a victim to this situation?”

When I was 16 years old the house my family and I lived in for 10 years burned to the ground.  My family and I lost everything.  Poems have always been a form of therapy for me, and I although I stopped for a period in my life, my desire for writing never died.  Here is a poem that briefly describes my memory of the house fire.

October Night

I know not what woke me up that night,

My eyes suddenly opened wide,

And yet I was unable to utilize my sight.

I frantically scrambled around to search for my phone,

I then realized at that moment, I was not alone.

As I headed to the door, I glanced to the right,

To see the flames as they raced through the house on this cold October night.

My screaming cries traveled all through the rooms as I fought through the heat,

I’ll never forget my mother’s face, it was a painful look of disbelief,

At the same moment, my father beside her stumbled to his feet.

One by one, the younger ones are brought to clean air,

After making that haunting call, I gazed around at the living nightmare.

The roof caved in, as the structure began to fall,

I see the ash float to the sky, as they once were memories that hung from our wall.

As I threw my arms around my family,

I prepared myself for the pain,

Because i knew in my heart things would never again be the same.

After the tears, I decided that night,

That was the end to a chapter, but not to my life.

Through the power of God, I chose to survive.
