The Birth of Jesus Foretold (our Christmas message for today... December 23, 2014)In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin's name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, "Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you." Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. But the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High.

Message for the final days of 2012 id from LUKE 2:21-52
Jesus Presented in the Temple
21 On the eighth day, when it was time to circumcise him, he was named Jesus, the name the angel had given him before he had been conceived. 22 When the time of their purification according to the Law of Moses had been completed, Joseph and Mary took him to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord 23 (as it is written in the Law of the Lord, "Every firstborn male is to be consecrated to the Lord" ), 24 and to offer a sacrifice in keeping with what is said in the Law of the Lord: "a pair of doves or two young pigeons." 25 Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. 26 It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord's Christ. 27 Moved by the Spirit, he went into the temple courts. When the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the custom of the Law required, 28 Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying: 29 "Sovereign Lord, as you have promised, you now dismiss your servant in peace. 30 For my eyes have seen your salvation, 31 which you have prepared in the sight of all people, 32 a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel." 33 The child's father and mother marveled at what was said about him. 34 Then Simeon blessed them and said to Mary, his mother: "This child is destined to cause the falling and rising of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be spoken against, 35 so that the thoughts of many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce your own soul too." 36 There was also a prophetess, Anna, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was very old; she had lived with her husband seven years after her marriage, 37 and then was a widow until she was eighty-four. She never left the temple but worshiped night and day, fasting and praying. 38 Coming up to them at that very moment, she gave thanks to God and spoke about the child to all who were looking forward to the redemption of Jerusalem. 39 When Joseph and Mary had done everything required by the Law of the Lord, they returned to Galilee to their own town of Nazareth. 40 And the child grew and became strong; he was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was upon him.
The Boy Jesus at the Temple
41 Every year his parents went to Jerusalem for the Feast of the Passover. 42 When he was twelve years old, they went up to the Feast, according to the custom. 43 After the Feast was over, while his parents were returning home, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem, but they were unaware of it. 44 Thinking he was in their company, they traveled on for a day. Then they began looking for him among their relatives and friends. 45 When they did not find him, they went back to Jerusalem to look for him. 46 After three days they found him in the temple courts, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. 47 Everyone who heard him was amazed at his understanding and his answers. 48 When his parents saw him, they were astonished. His mother said to him, "Son, why have you treated us like this? Your father and I have been anxiously searching for you." 49 "Why were you searching for me?" he asked. "Didn't you know I had to be in my Father's house?" 50 But they did not understand what he was saying to them. 51 Then he went down to Nazareth with them and was obedient to them. But his mother treasured all these things in her heart. 52 And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.
Our first Bible message for2013 comes from Romans 10: 8-13.'God's message is near you, on your lips and in your heart... the message of faith. If you confess that Jesus is Lord and believe that God raised him from death, you will be saved. The scripture says,'Whoever believes in him will not be disappointed.' This includes everyone, because there is no difference between Jews and Gentiles; God is the same Lord of all and richly blesses all who call to him...'Everyone who calls out to the Lord will be saved.'
Matthew 28:18-20: Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." ...
1st Corinthians 30-31: God has brought us into union with Christ Jesus, and God has made Christ to be our wisdom. By Him we are put right with God; we become God's holy people and are set free. So then, as the scripture says, "Whoever wants to boast must boast of what the Lord has done".
Golden promises... from Golden Bear Cottages Christian Family Resort
Our goal is to "lead you when you travel to the mountain, protect you at night and advise you during the day. We hope that our instructions will be for you like a shining light while allowing you (our guests) to enjoy a relaxing Big Bear Lake alpine experience." We strive to make our resort an antidote to all that is excessive, formal, artificial or contrived. By focusing on the very essence of life we have been given by God, we hope to offer our guests a welcome retreat in tune with the spirit of the mountains and all the friendship your heart desires.
Before Jesus sent out the disciples to take the message of the gospel to all nations, he assured them of his promise to send the Holy Spirit. That promise motivated them to continue with one accord in prayer (Acts 1:14). God's promises are provided to stir us and inspire us to pray. Those precious promises - there are hundreds throughout the Bible - show us things God has purposed and wants us to ask for, just as he wanted his disciples to ask for the Holy Spirit so they would have power for ministry. These golden promises teach us about how to pray, and they build our faith. "If I am to have faith when I pray," said American evangelist R.A. Torrey, "I must find some promise in the Word of God on which to rest my faith.…If there is no promise in the Word of God, and no clear leading of the Spirit, there can be no real faith." Today, ask the Lord which of his promises he wants you to pray about. The Holy Spirit will fill you with power from on high to accomplish what needs to be done.
THANK YOU, FATHER, for the promises in your word. May they be incentives for me to continue in prayer so that your will may be accomplished and your kingdom will come in my life, family, nation, and world. Holy Spirit, thank you for dwelling within me and for filling me with your power. Let my prayers be pleasing to you, Father, as your Spirit leads me in praying in light of your promises.

We have decided to reach out to family of guests and friends and ask you to do something that has been troubling us for a long time. Our nation has been on the slippery slope for a long time. If you look around, you will find corruption, greed, moral decay, and a steady move away from the things that made us great. The principles upon which this nation was founded are no longer our backbone. However, we can reverse this trend.
From the Old Testament II Chronicles 7:14 in God's word states"If my people pray to me and repent and turn away from the evil they have been doing, I will hear them in heaven, forgive their sins, and make their land prosperous again."
From the New Testament 1 Corinthians 10:23-24 "We are allowed to do anything, so they say. That is true, but not everything is good. We are allowed to say anything, but not everything is helpful. No one should be looking out for only his own interests, but for the interests of others". Good News Bible
We are convinced that as Christians we must pray for our nation and its leaders and ask for forgiveness. So we ask you to join us in this plea to our Lord. Would you please ask this prayer every day this month.
Imagine if this new story reaches only 100 persons and they each share it with ten others. We could lift up millions of prayers to God, our creator. He will hear us and, in faith, will answer.
Let us just add a quote from Ronald Reagan,"If we ever forget that we're onenation, under God, then we will be a nation gone under."
We truly believe this is why the United States of America is in the shape we are in today. Most people have forgotten that we are one nation, under God. Let us, as Christians, stand up and remind people of this.
