True Meaning of Christmas Day 6: Shepherds

Did you notice that I didn’t post yesterday? Well, I got my counting all off and realized my days were wrong.  I really wanted to talk about the Shepherds on Christmas Eve, because on the Eve of Christ’s birth an angel appeared to the shepherds.

True Meaning of Christmas Day 2: The Virgin, Mary

Welcome to Day 2! Mary played one of the most important roles in the true meaning of Christmas, that was being the mother of Jesus Christ.  I learned so much about Mary, in the little information that is known about her.

True Meaning of Christmas Day 1: Prophecies of Jesus Christ’s birth?

Did you know that there were prophecies (divine message from God) of Jesus Christ’s birth before he was born?  It’s true!!  Heavenly Father wanted people to know of this event before hand so they could start declaring it to others. Many prophets in the Bible and Book of Mormon foretold Jesus Christ’s birth and ministry hundreds of years before the actual event. We will look at a few of those. Prophecy 1: The first prophecy happened 700 years before His birth. Isaiah, a prophet in the Old Testament, prophesied that a pure woman would give birth to Heavenly Father’s Son. In Isaiah 7:14, it reads; ““Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” Also, in Isaiah 9:6; “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called […]
