History’s Cornerstone

“For in Scripture it says: ‘See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame.’”

– 1 Peter 2:6

Today I have some excellent news for you: things may be becoming darker, but you’re becoming brighter. Even if the days are becoming colder, you’re getting warmer, because I think God works His greatest miracles in our lives when we’re at our lowest. Because of One Man, who changed the path of history from the moment of His birth, redemption is attainable.

Everything changed in year zero, as you can see. The two epochs of human history, BC and AD, center around one thing: Christmas. Although BC stands for “Before Christ,” we can refer to it as “Before Christmas” for our purposes because it essentially implies the same thing. Year one corresponds to the birth of Jesus, while AD stands for Anno Domini, which means “Year of Our Lord” in Latin. Because of the significance and importance of Christ’s birth, all of human history, including all religions, world views, and nationalities, is divided into AD and BC periods. Everything changed when the actual Jesus arrived in his flesh, bringing heaven with him. In his physical flesh, Jesus carried all the possibilities of God’s Kingdom, and he opened up Heaven’s riches to you and me. Our Lord’s Kingdom invaded earth in the first year of AD!

Friend, you are living in the year of God and anything is possible! The coming of the world’s hope, Jesus Christ, had been prophesied for hundreds of years…and he came. This is fantastic news for you and me because it means we have boundless hope, possibility, and potential with Him. We worship a God who claims that it’s only ended when you die and that after you die, things get even better. This is why, no matter where you are if you respond in faith, you will receive blessings. Jesus’ birth changed the course of human history, and you are the beneficiary of everything He accomplished! Isn’t it wonderful news?

Prayer


Jesus, I am blessed and humbled to be able to have a relationship with you, the epicenter of human history. Thank you for calling me your own.

    I can proudly say that Jesus Christ is the center and foundation of my life. Because without a rock solid faith. My knowledge and love for him would not be as strong as it is now.He is the answer to all of the problems that are happening in the world. People need to get down on their knees and pray.They can ask for blessings upon them and their families.And also for their friends, Prayers don’t have to be vocal. He hears everything.Whether you’re in a church, or at home. It doesn’t matter where or when you pray.I want to wish all at Shepherd’s Grove at Irvine Presbyterian Church a Blessed Merry Christmas and a Joyous and Happy New Year. To the Schuller family
    blessings for good health and happiness and warm Christmas wishes. To the music ministry and their directors Much thanks and appreciation for the music and singing. I remain a faithful viewer and a Happy and Wholesome student in Jesus Christ. Amen. And may God bless the United States of America
