Scripture tells us that Jesus is God: Christ existed before His own birth- in fact, even before time began. The prophet Micah spoke of His ancient origin [But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for Me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times. [Micah 5:2], and Paul named Jesus as the Creator [He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. [Colossians 1:15-17]. Note also that Jesus claimed equality with the invisible God and was the perfect reflection of Him (i.e. John 10:30 and John 14:9).
May I say, The Savior performed many miracles, such as restoring the dead to life---that were possible only by supernatural power (see John 11:43-44). Christ received worship and forgave sin. These two acts alone are appropriate only for Deity. This Christmas think about Jesus coming to earth as a baby, imagine the power resting in that little manger, the omnipotent God was lying in a trough made from trees He had created, under stars He Himself had strewn across the sky! He did all this because He loves you. The Bible makes it clear that there is only one way to eternal life: by trusting in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior [Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved [ Acts 4:12]. Friend weigh the evidence, and then make a wise decision to follow Him.

What we believe has a direct impact on our response to life’s problems.
Where the mind dwells, the heart follows.
Preparation for the future starts with developing biblical thinking.
In times of discouragement, you have a choice. Will you focus on your circumstances, or will you fix your gaze on Jesus and trust Him?
We know that God won’t add to or take away from the Bible. It is His complete and reliable Word. Therefore, anyone claming to have more scriptures, new revelation, or another Testament is a fraud.
Because we are eternally secure in Christ, we are never in a hopeless circumstance. We may feel desperate, but emotions are not reliable. Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior and friend, is our constant source of hope.
The power is not in what we say, but in what God says.
