The True Christmas



For unto us a child is born,
to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his
shoulder,
and his name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and
of peace
there will be no end,
on the throne of David and over his
kingdom,
to establish it and uphold it
with justice and with righteousness
from this forth and
forevermore.
The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do
this.
~Isaiah 9:6-7

For he grew up before him like a young
plant,
and like a root out of dry ground;
he had no form or majesty that we
should look at him,
and no beauty that we should desire
him.
He was despised and rejected by men;
a man of sorrows, and acquainted
with grief;
and as one from whom men hide their
faces
he was despised, and we esteemed
him not.
Surely he has borne our griefs
and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed him stricken,
smitten by God and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our
transgressions;
he was crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that
brought us peace,
and with his stripes we are healed.
~Isaiah 53:2-5

Merry Christmas!
