“On Earth Peace and Goodwill to Men”!
Daily Devotion: Just Another Night in Bethlehem - By Greg Laurie -
Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice, for the Lord has done marvelous things! -Joel 2:21
On the first Christmas Eve, there were no brightly colored lights on anyone's homes. There were no stockings that had been hung with care or any visions of sugarplums dancing in children's heads. It was just another night in Bethlehem. The census had gone out-that command by Caesar that everyone was to be taxed. But history was about to change in Bethlehem.
All of Israel was living in a very frightening time historically. They lived under the tyrant King Herod who would execute people at will. In addition, the Jews were living in occupied territory. The Romans had taken control of their country. They were no longer free to do what they wanted and live as they wanted. They wondered if Rome would ever leave. Would the violent rule ever cease? Would their world ever change?
Then suddenly angels appeared to the shepherds and told them not to be afraid; the Messiah had been born.
There is a lot to be afraid of in our unstable, volatile world today. It seems that at every turn, we hear about another horrific tragedy happening in our world. It can cause us to be terrified.
Then there are the personal fears: What if I lose my health? What if I lose a member of my family? What if this happens? What if that happens? A lot of things run through our minds. 
Here is the message of the first Christmas-and the message for us this Christmas: Don't be afraid. . . . I bring you good tidings of great joy.
Ray Stedman wrote, "The chief mark of the Christian ought to be the absence of fear and the presence of joy."
Does that describe you? Fear is what Christmas came to remove-and now we can have joy in its place.
Last Sunday we look at what the wise men “Gentiles” saw a star the Kingdom of God that governs our world by religion, economic and government now here to-day we see what the shepherds  “Jews” saw and heard Luke 2 8-14 On Earth Peace and Goodwill!
Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And [c]behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. 10 Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. 11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a [d]manger.”
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:
14 “Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill[e] toward men!”
And on earth peace, goodwill[e] toward men!”

Kingdom of God
This is the Kingdom that not only turns the Old Testament inside out but operates opposite of earthy kingdoms. This Kingdom is mention 32 times in Matthews and reflects the messianic Kingdom for seen by the prophet (Isaiah 9:6-7)
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 Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. 
Rome was the Government that was in charge of what was going on and it was corrupt and King Herod was will aware of the fact something was going to happen and he was determined not to allow it to happen on his watch. So when the wise men came to him to let him know they were following a star to worship this new King Herod was troubled. Someone was going to have a much bigger Kingdom and he did not like this, so wanted the wise men to tell him where this child was going to be. So Matthew 2: 1 to 6 gives us the picture of Wise Men from the East
Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, [a]wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.”
When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born.
So they said to him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written by the prophet:
‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
Are not the least among the rulers of Judah;
For out of you shall come a Ruler
Who will shepherd My people Israel.
Notice they were wise men who studied the stars for they had a lot of time to identify the wonders of stars. It is amazing how many want to know what kind of star they are, astrology is real, it’s the practice of science claiming to foretell the future by studying supposed influence of the relative positions of the moon, sun and stars on human affairs. That is the reason for horoscopes at the checkout stands at grocery stores. 
These wise men were no doubt Gentiles not belonging to the commonwealth of Israel and knew the Stars and here this one is seen traveling. They were scholars they liked the ark of the sky’s and were curious learning about the God who created the stars. Men of the East noted for their soothsaying Isa. 2:6 no doubt from Arabia. We sing the song we three King of orient are. So being a student of the stars they saw one brighter than the rest and it was like a comet that was moving in the lower part of the air. So it was not common and they know it was something to follow. God is always shining His light for the world to see His glory and love and we are seeing it around the world today as Government’s, religious bodies and economic are being question and people know something is going to happen. Lord help us to see the star the Lord is showing our world today for He is still what the world needs. We are seeing signs in the heavens, hurricanes, floods, fires, earthquakes, snow heights greater than ever, hot getting hotter and signs of astrology practiced by many around the world. 
The Shepherds were notified by an angel, these Gentile Philosopher’s wise men, where lead by a star. God always speaks in a way we can all understand. The wise men saw the star after leading them to the place Jesus was born. Idolaters worship the stars and the Old Testament in Isaiah 47:13  You are wearied in the multitude of your counsels; Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, And the monthly prognosticators Stand up and save you From what shall come upon you. Daniel 1:20 says and in all matters of wisdom and understanding about which the king examined them,(Shadrach; Meshach; and Abednego.)he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers who were in all his realm.When King Nebuchadnezzar had a dream causing his spirit to be troubled, he commanded the magicians and the astrologers and the sorcerers to see if they know what this dream meant. They wanted him to tell about his dream and he said, no you tell me and if you can’t you will be cut in pieces and your houses shall be made a dung kill. They said, King there is not a man on earth that can tell you about this dream. The king was mad, angry and furious and commanded that all wise should be slain. But Daniel asked the head wiseman Arioch why is the degree so hasty, so he asked to be saved with Shadrack Meshach and Abednego. Daniel was given permission to go to the King and tell him what the dream was all about. The Image you saw was excellent, but terrible you saw the future of the Kingdoms that will rule. This made the King respond by saying in Daniel 2:47The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is, that your God is a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing thou couldest reveal this secret.
I hope you’re seeing the star within the Kingdom of God for it is the Church that Jesus came to embrace and empower to allow us to become like Him. This Kingdom is Gods favor given to all He created, that was good, Do all people see Gods goodness no, only those that are saved accepting the way, truth and life as they abide in the vine; Jesus, so we can produce fruit that is good for all.
We are seeing the Kingdom of God being threated around the world and the more the Church is persecuted the faster it grows.
We are seeing the image King Nebuchadnezzar saw with the Religious arena, Government and economics become reality as one world order is fast approaching. Look at the role of the United Nations.

As the most representative inter-governmental organization of the world today, the United Nations' role in world affairs is irreplaceable by any other international or regional organizations. The United Nations has made enormous positive contributions in maintaining international peace and security, promoting cooperation among states and international development. Today, people of the world still face the two major issues of peace and development. Only by international cooperation can mankind meet the challenges of the global and regional issues. The United Nations can play a pivotal and positive role in this regard. Strengthening the role of the United Nations in the new century and promoting the establishment of a just and reasonable international political and economic order goes along with the trend of history and is in the interest of all nations.
In order to strengthen the role of the United Nations, efforts should be made to uphold the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations. The authority of the Security Council in maintaining international peace and security must be preserved and role of the United Nations in development area should be strengthened. To strengthen the role of the United Nations, it is essential to ensure to all Member States of the United Nations the right to equal participation in international affairs and the rights and interests of the developing countries should be safeguarded. 
Government has to have money in order to survive and the World Bank started in 1944 has it’s resent goalthe reduction of poverty.[5] As of November 2018, the largest recipients of world bank loans were India ($859 million in 2018) and China ($370 million in 2018), through loans from IBRD International Bank for Reconstruction and Development. This is connected with the Federal Reserve established in1443 and it is the Central Bank of the United States, that provides the nation with a safe, flexable, and stable monetary and financial system. They work with the world bank and yet we see no justice with in our world all for the simple reason our religious system is controlled by Revelation 13 which shows the third beast described with a  wounded head, but  is healed, speaking blasphemy against God in the Church verse 
It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every [d]tribe, tongue, and nation. All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
If anyone has an ear, let him hear. 10 He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the [e]patience and the faith of the saints.
I hope you’re seeing the Kingdom of God is not controlled by man, but by the Holy Spirit. That is the reason we need to be convicted when we sin so we turn towards the Lord for good mental health. We are seeing people confined in Jails suing for a settlement of 83.4 million dollars, for not providing timely competency services to mentally ill in jails in Washington State. 
Here we are as a Church ministering to people who are sinners only saved by grace as they accept the good news, Jesus saves. 
Read John 3:16 and John 15 and trust Your seeing the arms of Jesus that are reaching down to save you from the pits of Satan’s hellish deeds, so you can achieve your potential in Him. As you’re a part of the Kingdom of God.


Emmanuel GOD WITH US!

“Immanuel” God with Us
Matthew 1:22 
So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: 23 “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”
 This is the commentary of Matthew Henry's
Immanuel signifies God with us; a mysterious name, but very precious; God incarnate among us, and so God reconcilable to us, at peace with us, and taking us into covenant and communion with himself. The people of the Jews had God with them, in types and shadows, dwelling between the cherubim; but never so as when the Word was made flesh—that was the blessed Shechinah. What a happy step is hereby taken toward the settling of a peace and correspondence between God and man, that the two natures are thus brought together in the person of the Mediator! by this he became an unexceptionable referee, a days-man, fit to lay his hand upon them both, since he partakes of the nature of both. Behold, in this, the deepest mystery, and the richest mercy, that ever was. By the light of nature, we see God as a God above us; by the light of the law, we see him as a God against us; but by the light of the gospel, we see him as Immanuel, God with us, in our own nature, and (which is more) in our interest. Herein the Redeemer commended his love. With Christ’s name, Immanuel, we may compare the name given to the gospel church (Ezek. 48:35). Jehovah Shammah—The Lord is there; the Lord of hosts is with us.
Nor is it improper to say that the prophecy which foretold that he should be called Immanuel was fulfilled, in the design and intention of it, when he was called Jesus; for if he had not been Immanuel—God with us, he could not have been Jesus—a Saviour; and herein consists the salvation he wrought out, in the bringing of God and man together; this was what he designed, to bring God to be with us, which is our great happiness, and to bring us to be with God, which is our great duty.
Thank the Lord we are living in a time when God is showing Him Self as Immanuel for we are seeing our world out of order in so many areas and it is amazing to me how we never learn from the past even yet today. Sin is still that same as it was in the garden of Edens Paradise and that is we see, hear, desire and take and if it is wrong deny and have to hide our feeling. 
Just in my life I know what it is like to make comments or do things I wished I could do over again. Yet I to do not learn from the past I have to live in the now just like anyone else. 
This is hard for I tend to get out of the vine and want to say or do what I think and not thinking about what God would want me to say or think. 
I know that in order to have peace Christ needs to have His way and that happens when I am involved in His way, truth and life attending His Church, so I grow in my relationship to God and one another in the Christian ways. I can afford to blame others for when I do I have three fingers pointing back at me. It is not my brother,   but it’s me oh Lord standing in the need of prayer was a song slaves sang during a time of tremendous pressure, it was sung with a show of forgiveness from being a captive of their owner. Lord help us to see the importance of accepting our responsibility to God with in the Church. The Pastor, Priest, Pope or any other religious leader can’t forgive us of our sins. We can’t hide the fact we are sinner that need saving by God grace, love and mercy so we can be empowered to continue to abide in the Lord, so things do not bother us, but we can remain in the vine producing good fruit and not being a fruit cake. The Church needs to make sure they are representatives or Ambassador in the Kingdom of God. That is showing by our actions and behavior by wanting to be like God created us to become pure and holy. The Church to day is seeing sin creep in destroying the very foundation of salvation, grace, mercy and love by accepting anything goes and forgetting the fact. We are living in the last days with even the elect are being deceived, look at the amount of pastors that feel they do not need to be accountable to one another or to a denomination. There are Pastor who teach once saved always saved and not one can remove you from His grace. Then we have Pastor who feel they are perfect and everyone needs to pay attention to them. We have pastor who practice meditation build around positive thinking Yes, I can, I know I can. We have pastor that do not preach heaven or hell we just pass away and that is the end of life. We have pastors who are practicing satanic ideology that is believed by people. We have Pastor that do not practice what they preach. So, we have many who are following the ways of the Devil himself and it shows by how many seem to not care about what is happening around the world. So, the Church is losing the warfare and Satan is deceiving people around the world.
