Celebrating with Heaven!

  A Muslim in a Facebook debate group asked, "Did Jesus Christ command Christians to celebrate his birthday on Christmas Day?" Other Muslims follow that up with dire warnings of the evils of commemorating the birth of the single most influential Man that has ever walked the earth.

  Why are Muslims so upset that Christians celebrate the birth of Christ once a year when all of heaven celebrated His birth almost 2,000 years ago? 

8 In the same region, shepherds were staying out in the fields and keeping watch at night over their flock.

9 Then an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.

10 But the angel said to them, “Don’t be afraid, for look, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people:

11 Today a Savior, who is Messiah the Lord, was born for you in the city of David.

12 This will be the sign for you: You will find a baby wrapped snugly in cloth and lying in a feeding trough.”

13 Suddenly there was a multitude of the heavenly host with the angel, praising God and saying:

14 Glory to God in the highest heaven,

and peace on earth to people He favors!
Luke 2

  Muslims may also want to note that the angel's announcement once again contradicts the message of Muhammad in at least two points. The angel declares that:

  - Christ's message is for all people, not just the Jews

  - Christ is our Savior, come to purchase our salvation for us through the forgiveness of our sins

  Christians who rejoice at and celebrate the birth of Yeshua the Jewish Messiah are on the side of Heaven. Which side are you on, dear reader?

Jesus is LORD!
