Some years ago, this holy child Jesus had me to spend a few days in Annapolis Maryland. This city was the first capital of the United States. As I was there, waiting on the Lord in a certain part of the city, I couldn't help but notice how manicured the homes were. They almost looked fake! This was done, so they say, to preserve the aesthetics of their original character.. As much as I would liked to have believed this, too many modern methods and materials were used. This altering the original designers goal.
Beloved, do not allow modern religion to façade the true word of God! This holy child Jesus is as powerful today as he was at birth. Mighty God, everlasting Father, Wonderful Counselor, Prince of Peace! When you or I really get right down to it, this holy 'Son of God' that is birth in our hearts, still comes with all the trimmings.
