This is a very common phrase; I have heard it said by many people. I myself have repeated it countless times in the form of mockery, excuse, disbelief, challenge, or simply to make someone angry. Especially when I joke with my friends or even when, in my student days, someone said to me, “I’m going to beat you in the face”. I answered, “It has to be seen to be believed”.
The Bible does not mention how old Joseph was when he married Mary. Nor when Jesus was born. It doesn’t even mention how old he was when he died. In fact, very little was written about Joseph despite the fact that his presence as husband, head of the family and the putative father of Jesus Christ was transcendental in God’s plans.
This is the definition of hope I like: Hope is anticipating and longing for the promised blessings of righteousness. The scriptures often speak of hope as the anticipation of eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ.
Today as I looked towards the sky … And I felt that the wind that played with my hair was as cold as ice.
With my gaze fixed on infinity I was looking for consolation. Many days have passed, since you left and although I know that seeing you return is impossible, I carry your memory inside me.
Suddenly, something caught my attention. It shined so strangely. Its radiance was like the sun’s rays.
LIGHT THE WORLD.
In this special time, it is good to know a bit of history to get to know the true meaning of Christmas.
Christmas is a celebration that, according to historians, has its origin from many pagan festivals, which were celebrated to honor mythological gods or commemorate cruel or bloody acts. In addition, history assures that formerly in the temples erected for the adoration to God, existed much ecclesiastical debauchery. That has nothing to do with the birth of Jesus Christ; According to several scientists who studied earthly events and biblical stories, they have determined that the birth of Jesus Christ occurred between the months of April or May. And that Christmas was a holiday instituted by the Roman church, which chose December 25 to commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ. This way, all believers moved away from pagan festivals to celebrate a transcendental event such as the BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST, uniting them in a single celebration called CHRISTMAS.
