Merry Christmas!

I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and may we all remember the real reason for the season.

Luke 2:11-Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.

His birth was with a purpose that I pray more people will come to understand and accept.

John 3:16 – For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

  1. Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to you and yours Kirk and John! May God Bless you both and your obviously very successful non profit organization called IllinoisLeaks.com You help us all who read your words…”Know what is in front of your face” Thank you! Keep up the good work!
    Go FOIA!

    Here are some other interesting things Jesus said in quotes, from the Nag Hamadi scroll – with our annotations and hypotheses in parenthesis: “Whoever discovers the interpretation of these sayings will not taste death.”  (“Not taste of death” is not the same as “you will not die.”  Obviously you will die. “Taste” of death might refer to the fear of death which becomes like an overbearing shadow spoiling life and joy.) “When you know yourselves, then you will be known, and you will understand that you are children of the living Father. But if you do not know yourselves, then you live in poverty, and you are the poverty.”  (True, inner truth is truth that is OF that Light that Burns in Darkness. Anything else is barren and can not shine out.)

    “Know what is in front of your face, and what is hidden from you will be disclosed to you. For there is nothing hidden that will not be revealed. And there is nothing buried that will not be raised.” (True, this is more about inner truth.  Hiding what you are from yourself only lasts so long.  Eventually, Something grabs you by the heart and makes you see it.

    Jesus Christ said:
    “Know what is in front of your face”

    I have often said:
    Get well informed first so you can make informed decisions based on factual evidence not depend on the opinions of others to form your opinions and make your decisions, and then get MORE involved in the process of solving the problems you can identify and quit making excuses why you can’t. You CAN make a difference in our society and your community. Even one person can make a huge difference in other people’s lives and change our world we all share together.

    In 1945 a scroll was discovered in Nag Hamadi, “The Secret Sayings of the Living Jesus,” i.e., The Gospel of Thomas; it is a Coptic translation of a Greek translation of Jesus’ oral Aramaic sayings.  Scholars agree that this is the closest record we have of the historical Jesus. 

  2. Edgar County is the first place i heard that message. It had strayed from its religious roots, but seems to be coming back! Keep praying for the county!

  3. John 11:25

    25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26 and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

    27 “Yes, Lord,” she replied, “I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.”
