December 21st, 2018

For many of us, Christmas is our favorite time of the year. But each year it grows more difficult to navigate the suffocating commercialism and secularization of the season to arrive at the genuine reason for the celebration: the incarnation of God as a human to become the sacrifice for our sins and make possible our reconciliation to God.

I'm afraid we've lost our sense of wonderment at the unfathomable miracles that made possible the advent of our Savior.

One of those miracles was the coming of the magi to worship the child. As is our tradition on this program, I will examine the story of those mysterious 'wise men' who traveled so far to worship the new 'King of the Jews.' Who were they? How did they know to watch for a sign in the heavens? How long did they wait for that sign? Where did they come from? (Hint: It's a land where, 20 centuries later, the followers of the Christ child are suffering tremendous persecution and martyrdom.) Why did gentiles come to worship the King of the Jews? How did God use them to preserve the Messiah's life? You'll learn the answers to all of these questions and more this week when I discuss "The Mystery of the Magi."

I think it will rekindle in you an appreciation of the complexity of God's plan to redeem His creation through His own sacrifice. Christmas is a celebration of that overwhelming and unsearchable love.

Don't miss this week's Report on TBN, Daystar, CPM Network, various local stations http://www.hallindsey.com or http://www.hischannel.com. Check your local listings.

All of us at The Hal Lindsey Report and Hal Lindsey Website Ministries wish you a wonderful and blessed Christmas.

Never forget why we celebrate and Who we honor at this time of the year.

Also, remember to pray for all of the members of our armed forces who are standing guard for our nation around the world. Pray, too, for our local first-responders -- those men and women who stand ready 24 hours a day to protect and rescue us. This is a lonely time to be away from home and the ones they love. Pray that the Holy Spirit will strengthen, encourage, and protect them and make them to feel His presence in a special way during this holy season.

Merry Christmas, y'all!

God Bless,


Hal Lindsey
