The Spirit Of Christmas Celebration

Short-talk

Frankly, whenever it comes to Christmas mood, one place that keep crossing my mind is "Singapore's Orchard Road". Goshh... I am and still miss the superb atmosphere and EVERYTHING at orchard road during this season. The celebration, the wonderful decoration, the public ....... Someone please bring me there NOW! =P

Christmas oohh Christmas...


I was flipping through the newspaper just now and i stumbled upon this interesting article at the main page -"Santa goes commercial", "Is there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?" Candidly, as year passes by, the celebration of the origin Christmas has slowly diluted and turned into a commercial. Why does this happen?


I am certain that most of us are hectic in cracking our minds of what presents to purchase for our friends. Yet, beyond all these, we should really take an inner understanding of the Christmas is actually about. Truly nowadays people are gradually blanking out the significance meaning of Christmas, and Christmas has turned into a commercial. Sad to say that Christmas day is no longer a symbolic of the birth of Jesus Christ.





The fulfillment of the Messiah prophecy. The birth of Jesus was foretold by the Prophet Isaiah many hundreds years ago before the birth. And it was fulfilled. **Amazed**


Isaiah 7:14

"Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel."


Matthew 1:23

"The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means "God with us."


Let's not neglecting the First Love. Wouldn't write much, I have uploaded two of my favorite Christmas songs. Enjoy listening and let them bring forth the wonderful message.



**Enjoy listening and sing along.**



Emmanuel has come

Verse 1:

Christmas is about His glory
Christmas is about His grace
Christmas is a gift of love, Our Father gave us
More than just another story
About a special time and place
Christmas is a time to live the song of praise


Chorus:


For God is with us
As we celebrate the glory of His presence
Christ has come to fill our hearts with love
He came to save us
King of kings and Lord of lords
His Name is Jesus
God with us, Emmanuel has come

Verse 2:


Angel fills the night with singing
God is reaching out to men
Bringing us a gift of hope in Christ our Savior
More than just a time of giving
This is God's eternal plan
Christmas is the reason we can sing again



Oh Holy Night

Verse:

Oh Holy night
The stars are brightly shining
IT is the night of our dear Savior's birth
Now long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till He appeared and the soul felt it's worth
The thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks, a new and glorious morn


Chorus:

Fall on your knees
Oh hear the angel voices
Oh night divine
Oh night when Christ was born
Oh night divine, Oh night
Oh night divine




We should NOT let the influence of commercialization hijacks the spirit and true meaning of Christmas. The perfect Hope and Peace, once and for all.
Blessed Christmas peers. =)
